I just finished the Glenn Ford book last night as a matter of fact.
Have you heard Robert Osborne talk about her?
He KNEW her! Imagine.....
As far as programming, we love hearing from you. I sit near that department and if you would like to submit a list of titles to me through the Silver Screen Oasis, that would be great. I could check back to see what is submitted.
Also you can write to me in care of TCM, 1050 Techwood Drive, Atlanta, GA 30318.
Blood and Sand - again a Fox title so we will have to license - which we are doing more and more. We have been showing a lot of Columbia titles - including early Glenn Ford and some Rita.
I am thrilled to tell you we will be showing LAURA finally so each month, more and more Fox, Paramount, Columbia and United Artists.
Thanks, Rita, for taking time out to contact me.
About, Robert Osborne - talks about Rita - I have a DVR recording of him talking about her and its locked - so I can watch it anytime I want and believe me - he speaks volumes of her - literally.
I will write you in care of TCM - about a list of movies that I want TCM to show. I need time to write it clearly as possible.
I do have Blood and Sand on DVD - and its one of my favorite movies of Rita - and I consider it her breakout films that launched her into Superstardom. That Movie has star power - Tyrone Powers, Linda Darnell, Rita Hayworth, and Anthony Quinn ...
I love LAURA and I do have it on DVD - and its a fabulous movie starring the gorgeous Gene Tierney who is happen to be good friend with Rita Hayworth and her role in that movie - one of the most beloved Film Noirs of all time.
Again, thanks for responding to my questions - and I will try to come up with more later on this weekend.
