Saw a trailer for "Vivacious Lady" tonight. Looks like it's a sub for what is listed in the "Now Playing" guide. It's due Friday the 21st at 6:15pm. Tomorrow's entire day schedule is different than the Now Playing Guide, with the exception of "The Bamboo Blonde" at 6 am. All the Andy Hardy movies a...

Speaking of age appropriate behavior, what ever happened to that looney mugging case that left Prince Frederic Von Anhalt sans clothes and tied to his steering wheel? I don't know what happened, but my mom and I got a kick that he called Entertainment Tonight immediately after it happened. The pict...

I love any kinds of posts dealing with Oscar Levant. I found The Cobweb fairly boring which is a shame, since it has Lauren Bacall and Gloria Grahame in it. I wound up getting distracted halfway through and FF'ed for Oscar's parts though. Minnelli offered him the small part of Mr. Capp, since at the...

I have to second Mark's recommendations of "Tampico" (it's been showing on the Fox Movie Channel for awhile now--get it before they take it off), "A Slight Case of Murder" (very funny) and "Kid Galahad" (this is the actor that Bette hated kissing because of his 'liver lips'. Poor Eddie.) The drama i...

Don't forget: two other SSO'ers - Filmlover and Chris (movieman1957) - also submitted really strong schedules as well. I'm glad there wasn't a tie, because I didn't want to have to choose. They were all so good and each schedule had themes and movies that I loved! Thank you to all the SSO'ers that p...

I am really looking forward to this movie tonight--but since it's on so late, I'll tape it probably watch it during the week. I noticed it when I was looking over the schedule at the beginning of the month and thought it sounded really interesting and fairly different than the other usual TCM Import...

Moria, if you have to go with the boxed brownie mix, I suggest the Ghirardelli brand. Hands down, the best brownie mix I've ever tried. If you didn't have to swirl peanut butter into them, I'd tell you to go with the Turtle flavor. If you wanted to, you could always buy a bag of those peanut butter ...

After reading through the clarification thread, I just want to add that I feel badly for not ever commenting on your artwork--especially as a designer myself. Support and feedback are things we designers thrive on. It's like food and water to people ;) I envy your style. I've looked at your other de...

Manpower (1941)

I've been waiting to see this movie forever (the last showing was in December of 2005!) and I'm happy to say that it didn't disappoint. I'll watch anything that Edward G. Robinson is in and the added bonus of George Raft, made it even better. I started the thread here because I'm not sure what genre...

I always feel guilty whenever I post on the TCM boards. Granted, I don't post a lot on either board mainly due to time constraints, but I always feel bad whenever I post "over there". I feel like a traitor. This does not help my growing list of neuroticisms. A major reason I don't post a lot here is...

Re: How To Make A T-Shirt Quilt...

BTW-I wear my Peanuts t-shirts proudly...and I'll be in my late '40's next month! :D Hey, I still wear my Peanuts shirts too, except that I usually sleep in mine! They're still making lots of Peanuts/Snoopy sleepwear and everytime I see something new, I buy it. I keep telling myself, "It's for my c...

Inglis, your post made me smile. How wonderful of you to surprise your daughter with Hillary Duff tickets! My parents used to do things like that when I was a kid and those are some of my very best memories from my childhood. I imagine your daughter will feel the same way when she gets older. I'm gl...

I just finished watching Blood on the Moon and The Set-Up this afternoon and while I liked the first one (it reminded me of a Mann western), I absolutely loved The Set-Up . For a 72 minute movie, it was incredibly exciting and tense. The boxing match and the ending kept me on the edge of my seat, bu...

but just about anybody would look plain next to the gaudy, burlesque queen Marlene with her constant clown make up (all she was missing was a red bulb on her nose). I don't think you were clear enough, Anne. Did you think Marlene wore too much makeup or not enough? Not sure if this is surprising ne...
