Re: The Letter 1929 When this was dropped from the DVD release of the 1940 Bette Davis version, someone on the TCM board gave a link to a provider of obscure (mostly bootleg) films. I think it was ForgottenFilms. I ordered this along with a bootleg of Story of Temple Drake . Being a dupe, the film i...

It's a Precode Christmas courtesy of TCM!

WHOOEE! Someone just posted the Dec schedule over at the TCM boards and it is loaded with Precodes the first two weeks - too numerous to mention all here but I'm particulary looking forward to Up the River 1930 with Spencer Tracy and Humphrey Bogart, Frisco Jenny 1932 with Ruth Chatterton, and Virtu...

They call it Sin

One other film that I've never seen from her pre-code period is They Call It Sin (1932). Has anyone else seen this one?[/quote]

Moira - Someone just posted the December TCM schedule over at their boards, and this LY movie is scheduled for Dec. 10th.

Teddington

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the Teddington pictures anywhere in the Oasis (or did I miss the posting?). TCM featured three last Monday, and will show another trio this coming Monday. Am I the only one who's excited about seeing this British rarities? I watched last Monday, but only &quo...

A Man's Castle

I saw A Man's Castle a few years ago; I'm pretty sure it was at The Castro in SF. Although I love precodes and enjoy seeking out early performances by major stars such as Tracy, this one was hard for me to take, due to the unsympathetic character he plays. IIRC, she is homeless, he picks her up in t...

Hi Moira - try this site: www.allrecipes.com

I like this site because you can search for recipes according to ingredients, i.e. brownie mix & peanut butter. This is where I go when I'm in the mood to bake something and am limited to what's in my cupboard.

Mad Men on AMC

I never watch movies on this channel anymore, but had read some good reviews about this new series and was curious to check it out. I also have Comcast cable and this is an offering on their On Demand menu. For those who have not heard of this yet, it is a drama that takes place in the world of a Ma...

Re: Thanks!

Marco, I thought the woman in the plaid dress looked like the English actress Millicent Martin, so I looked her up on IMDb and, sure enough, there she was - this was part of a two episode series from one of the Disney TV shows of the 60s called "Disneyland." These episodes were called &qu...

Ben baby - thanks so much for finding these! I like the Bing Crosby version because it includes the verse, and the song is meant to be sung by a man. The Fleischer toon is fun too, but leads me to wonder about something else. Although I am familiar with the bouncing ball format, it is before my time...

Just a Gigolo - the tune

I was watching Flying Down to Rio for a bit last night, and in the scene where Dolores Del Rio realizes it is Gene Raymond piloting the plane, he quips the lyrics, "just a gigolo, everywhere I go". I was taken aback as I had no idea this tune was so old - I am only familiar with the Louis ...

This movie is one of my favorites, although I am not fond of Robert Cummings, I think it is his strongest performance, as well as Ronald Reagan's. And Claude Rains, Betty Field, Ann Sheridan all give strong portrayals. I find it hard to watch Charles Coburn in any other film without recalling his ro...

Blood Money 1933 w/Francis Dee FMC 9/8/07

Yowzza! I was just scanning the online schedule for Fox Movie Channel and found this precode listed to play 9/8/07. Anyone seen it? I think it was playing recently at a Film Forum festival. I wonder if it is as tawdry as Story of Temple Drake? Gee - 1933 must be one of my favorite years!

Follow Thru - on the big screen

Hi gang - well, I just recently saw this little "gem" on the big screen at the Stanford Theatre and am almost at a loss for words to describe the experience - I'm glad I saw it, but having experienced it once, have no need to endure it again (like Wagner). I was so curious to see it, as th...

I was looking forward to seeing this until I saw the previews - won't bother now. I did see the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley, but was so put off by the modern demeanor and tone of the characters - ended up really hating that version! My favorite film adaptation of Austen ...
