I do like classical music too, though it tends to bring me down a bit so I listen to it sparingly. Miss G As a classical music lover I'm curious to know what brings you down. I find most of Beethoven, Brahms and a good deal of Baroque music to be quite the opposite. Granted there are plenty of pice...

I think it's a fine idea. (The TCM board had a thread locked over this.) I'm a little surprised there aren't more of the live action Disney films. This may be a product of a short time on the contract. If they could get hold of "The Shaggy Dog" or something like that then it would be even more fun. ...

Sandy: I have the DVD of "The Quiet Man" and the colors are a bit bright. I imagine you'll be able to let that go and enjoy the movie. Besides if you get from the library and you can't watch it all it has cost is the time to get it. If you're willing to watch some westerns here are a few you might l...

Mike: I thought one of the best "Prime Suspects" was an entry called "The Lost Child." It's is similar to the type of episode you describe. It involves the death of a child where a local pedophile is thought to have committed the crime. I thought the acting, especially by the supprting cast, was ste...

Some films to enjoy that don't fit Wayne's primary genres are: (Times are Eastern time.) "The Long Voyage Home" - 22nd at 9:00am. His part is small but it's a good sea drama. Directed by John Ford. "Without Reservations" - 23rd/24th at 4:00am. Nice little comedy with Claudette Colbert. She's written...

John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Jimmy Stewart, Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant,
Jean Arthur, Ginger Rogers. Directors - John Ford and Hitchcock.

Up to a certain point in their career Laurel and Hardy. Mainly as I have seen their later works and when the studios took away their creativity it was pretty sad.

I watched the film again over the weekend just for this discussion. The one thing I noticed about Hallie asking Pompey to get Tom as Rance had a gun and was going to meet Liberty left me with the idea that she really meant for Tom to talk Rance out of doing anything. They all had been trying to get ...

I hated National Treasure too. The longer it went the more ridiculous it became. The last half hour is so goofy that I couldn't even finish it.

Smarter people than I may know but if there is a tracking system it must be internal. All of this, my guess is, just comes down to what is their core library. I know they don't own anything but some arrangements must have longer contracts than others. I'm sure there is some sense of recycling the fa...

[quote="MissGoddess"] I tried Prime Suspect but I couldn't really get into it. I haven't seen Cracker. I think they are just too realistic for my taste. If you didn't like "Prime Suspect" then you can probably pass on "Cracker." It is a tough character driven drama. Robbie Coltraine does a great job...

What do Charley Chase, Cary Grant and Charles Laughton have in common?

Shirley did the role on stage that Katharine did in "Summertime." Shirley was also in "Desk Set" on stage with Katharine doing the film. They did "The Philadelphia Story" together on stage.

Two very different women also starred with Burt Lancaster.

MissGodess:

"Inspector Morse" is one of my favorites too. I've only seen 6 or 7 out of the 33 but I think they are quite good. I've even seen the one new story for Inspector Lewis.

If you haven't seen the "Cracker" or "Prime Suspect" series you should check those out.
