Rusty

P.S. When I logged on to this website a few minutes ago, I was happy to see "dolores"!

Hello, Quote from MikeBSG... "I vote for Robert Siodmak. With the jazz scene in "Phantom Lady" he created an American expressionistic nightmare." I agree with MikeBSG...Robert Siodmak. If anyone asked me, "recommend one film I can watch and get a good idea of 'film noir'...". I would answer, " Phant...

Hello, Quote from JohnM... " The Blair Witch Project remains one of the worst "films" I've ever seen, and Deep Blue Sea , was just a silly little popcorn picture." JohnM...Interesting comment. Why do you consider The Blair Witch Project one of the worst films you've seen? The Blair Witch Project not...

Hello, I recently finished reading the book "The Hopkins Manuscript" by R.C. Sherriff. The book was recommended by Bronxgirl over on the TCM forum. "The Hopkins Manuscript" is a pretty good book. The style of writing reminds me of something by James Hilton. "Random Harvest"...James Hilton. "Lost Hor...

Hello,

I do like the "programming challenge" threads. I hope the idea hangs around the TCM forum.

Hello, Quote from moira... "So, does anybody think that there's any chance that cafeteria style cable choices will ever become a possibility? Certain lobbyists representing the tv industry would probably like this idea to die once again in Congress as it has repeatedly whenever it comes up." A coupl...

Laird Cregar...I wish we had more Laird Cregar(s).

MissGoddess, Have you watched Laird Cregar in his next to last film... The Lodger (1944)? The Lodger was on AMC not too long ago. I recorded. I watched. Laird Cregar IS Jack the Ripper. Well, Mr. Cregar calls himself "Slade"...but he IS Jack the Ripper. Laird's performance as Slade/Jack is fairly su...

"It could be worse..."

moira, I could go on and on about movie stars and the twilight years (career-wise). I mean, how many movie performer's careers end with a bang... like Spencer Tracy in Guess Who's Coming To Dinner ? I could go on and on, but I won't. I will just mention a couple of people. Last Sunday, I watched the...

Jean Pierre Jeunet...how influential is the guy?

Hello, For a start, I know very little about modern movies. I consider anything made since my birth year (1955) a modern movie. No...I guess any film made since Bonnie and Clyde is modern. Whatever, I have a question about modern films. About six months ago, I watched the movie Le Fabuleux destin d'...

Is it really a noir, indeed.

Hello, I just returned a dvd of House Of Strangers to Netflix. Even though 20th Century Fox calls the movie "film noir", I don't think the movie fits the noir genre. Oh...the movie includes a crime and some of the scenes are dark and Richard Conte does a fair amount of sweating (Edward G. Robinson s...

sandy, I know what you mean regarding YouTube comments. I had to stop reading the comments. The comments about a particular video are sometimes so off-the-wall, they ruin the experience of watching perfectly good video. We live in strange times. I wonder if Nostradamus had anything to say about the ...

sugarpuss, I don't remember the "Crime Stick" sketch, but I'm picturing how Bob and David would do it and I am laughing. I purchased one of the Mr. Show seasons on dvd...I wanted to watch the "Hail Satan Network" parody of evangelical television show. As a bonus, I got to watch "The Altered State of...

Jon, Good point and Larry's reminiscences is a good example to use to illustrate your point. I'm not reading any "grandfather" notice in the TCM ethics quote. However, I don't know how a lawyer would compose a "grandfather" notice. If I was Larry, I would NOT post any more valuable "movie stars I ha...

I recently watched a couple of episodes of I Love Lucy on...I think, TVLand. Lucy's antics made me laugh several times. So, I figure...if I Love Lucy was broadcast more than fifty years ago and still makes me laugh...it has to be I Love Lucy for all time favorite show. The one thing television does ...
