Ann--
I have this one on the DVR. Just waiting for a chance to play it...(ie, both kids and husband out of the house, no work to do. Sigh)

Most of the remarks about comedy vs. drama are on the mark about how to keep audiences coming back. One of the few shows I watch on a regular basis is NCIS - it stays with the mystery theme most of the time, but occasionally breaks off to do a personal back story show on one of the characters - >>>...

Shoot, my unsentimental kids have already told me they're selling all my stuff as soon as I'm gone...I'm thinking of cutting them both out of the will. LOL

Yeah, Dietrich was about 13 years older, but you're right--you don't notice., their chemistry is so good. Kind of like Katharine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole in The Lion in Winter . I've read reviews which criticize Hepburn's age, but in real life, Eleanor of Acquitaine was much older than Henry. And i...

Probably one of the scariest movies at least for me at the time was the original When a Stranger Calls. Teenage girl, alone in the house, responsible for two kids and some creepy guy keeps calling. SPOILER After a while, everytime the phone rings, you jump. The girl finally calls the police and they...

Steve, I think one reason was because of the miscegenation rules in effect at the time. Many states had laws forbidding marriage between any different races, so when the Production Code was drawn up, that became a part of it. Since, as someone said, they needed a "name" actor in at least o...

I have only seen the restored version of this movie. Was I the only one who got restless whenever Janet Leigh was onscreen? I thought the honeymoon plotline was so uneccesary, though it did make for some truly creepy scenes (Dennis Weaver's voyeuristic, hooped-up desk clerk, Mercedes McCambridge as ...

Also, I used to watch Niceklodeon cartoons with my kids, especially "Rugrats" and the WB's "Tiny Toon Adventures" which are full of references to classic movies. The Godfather , Cool Hand Luke , Fantastic Voyage , What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? , The Maltese Falcon , Ransom of ...

My name is Tracey and I am a Cartoonaholic... No really. I love cartoons. I can still get bent out of shape over Hanna Barberra allowing that blasted Scrappy Doo to take over the Scooby Do series. Ny favorites are probably classic Looney Toons. I remember watching them every Saturday morning with my...

Professional Sweetheart was cute. I always like Ginger Rogers in her early movies. Question-- I watched a film not long ago, from TCM, I thought it starred Ginger Rogers. Anyway, it was these two young people who fall in love, but before they can marry, a rich girl butts in and marries the man out ...

Toll of the Sea was beautiful and Anna May Wong was amazing for as young as she was. That child was adorable--cuter than Dickie Moore. I liked her in Old San Francisco too. I was kind of bored by Dolores Costello--all she did was look alternately horrified and flirtacious--and fwd to the Chinatown ...
