"And suddenly the hinges started to un-hitch..."

It's a nor'eastern! It's a nor'eastern! Marco, I'm glad you survived the storm of the century. Were you forced to travel about in gondolas? After you get settled, please share with us your adventures in the jolly ol' land of Oz (aka Manhattan.) Love the avatar! Don't you wish we could include music ...

"I don't like the way Teddy Roosevelt is looking at me.

That's interesting that you guys aren't fond of his mid-career films...the only Oscar nominations he received were for 2 of his movies from the '40's-"None But The Lonely Heart" and "Penny Serenade." Ironically, I've never seen either! I love Cary Grant. He was so handsome and suave and made acting ...

Hi, Chris(ty) According to IMDb-Woody finished a film (the third in his London trilogy) titled "Cassandra's Dream." It is a drama with Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell as brothers who become involved with "crime." His next film is scheduled to be shot in Barcelona this summer-with Javier, Scarlett Jo...

TCM's Sock Puppet Theatre featuring Queen Cinemascope

I am surprised that TCM has (virtually) ignored the feuds, insults, and bizarre behavior on their message boards...especially with such a small community. My Space has a HUGE community and they are quite prompt in "deleting" users who do not abide with their rules. There was a thread created yesterd...

"I am lusting for more. Should I settle for less?"

Thanks for the info, Kyle. I just assumed that IMDb photos were there for the taking... Thanks for the photos of Javier! I don't know if he can sing. (I'm sure Rob Marshall could "make" that happen. Look what he did with the cast of "Chicago.") As for dancing...well, one of Javier's earlier jobs was...

Doris Day takes a walk on the wild side

I've seen 3 Essentials with Robert and Carrie. They were both enthusiastic about "Breakfast At Tiffany's" being an essential and shared many reasons why they loved the movie...and a few things that annoyed them. With "Hud" and "Fear Strikes Out-"they were much less enthusiastic and seemed to be gras...

You Tube

Has anyone seen all those videos with the Lily Tomlin/David O. Russell feud from "I Heart Huckabees?" There are quite a few-including parodies-on You Tube. Actually, I wonder if it's a "real" feud, because it is pretty over-the-top extreme. I would post one here, but the language is pretty explicit....

I used to tape "The Surreal Life." I don't know if it comes on anymore.
I still tape "The Real World" and "24" and feel pretty "guilty" watching them.
I'm looking forward to a new season of "Nip/Tuck."
I would also love to catch up on seasons 2 thru 5 of "Footballers Wives." :twisted:

"The Lonesome Rhodes express...going down!"

Having "known" Griffith as Andy Taylor my entire life, I was mesmerized by his frightening performance as an Arkansas "good ol' boy" who becomes a "force." This was Elia Kazan's follow up to "Baby Doll" and was similar in it's serio-comic depictions of mid-century Southerners' struggles for power. I...
