Any forums that you'd like to see? Film Noir? War movies? Cult films? Horrendously unwatchable lost Irene Dunne musicals?

Let us know and we'll see what we can do.

I would like an entire forum dedicated to the task of bashing Lawrence of Arabia. :twisted:

No bashing of Written On The Wind will be allowed, however. :P

Noooo! I love Lawrence of Arabia!

After watching it, one does get VERY thirsty, though!

Hey, maybe we should have a forum that is for actors and actresses or a general "People" forum. Or maybe a "Your Favorites" forum like on the TCM boards.

I read Moira's and Feaito's comments about Claudette Colbert in the Westerns forum and I'm trying to figure the best place to start a thread about Miss Colbert.

John Ford may need a thread of his own, but so should James Cagney, Spencer Tracy,Thomas Mitchell, Eugene O' Neil,Ann Dvorak ( McKim ) Greer Garson , and oh yes " THe Queen of Techicolor " Maureen , what is her name, oh,yes O'Hara :P

Film Noir & Crime Sections?

Postby moira finnie » April 14th, 2007, 4:38 pm

I think that a Film Noir & Crime Section might be helpful. Does anyone else?

Ken, how about taking Miss O'Hara and her cohorts over to the Western area?

I second your motion in regard to this site having a " Film Noir " section. I will take Miss O' Hara to the bedr...er I mean Western Section.

How about a section on Comedies/ Romantic Comedies ? :P

Done and done so far as Noir and Comedies go. What should we do about people? Just start an "Actors and actresses" forum under Film, and let people start threads about whoever they want to talk about?

People Section

Postby moira finnie » April 14th, 2007, 5:48 pm

Would it be helpful to have an In Celebration section to praise longtime favorites or new discoveries made by individual posters in the world of classic film? Would it be acceptable to have an In Memoriam section along with an In Celebration area to note the death of filmmakers?

Jon, I think that people are bound to start threads about whomever they want to talk about throughout the forums, but I hope that others will add their thoughts on this idea eventually.

Rather than do this, I'd like to throw it open for discussion (and once I'm done with this post I intend to post one on forum organization under "Site Talk.). Suffice it to say that I'm posting this as a user, not administrator.

I *hate* the designation "foreign film." It seems to me an artificial category that serves to confuse the issue. Why not post foreign film threads according to what kind of film it is, rather than where it was made?

I came to this position through not being able to find DVDs at Borders. Is "The Last Laugh" a silent film or a foreign film? Do all Murnau films go under foreign until "Sunrise," when they automatically move? Shouldn't "The Seven Samurai" be considered an action film, or even a western, rather than a Japanese film? What possible purpose is served by categorizing films according to where they are made (other than warning Anne that subtitles are coming :)).

I'd like to hear other thoughts on this.

That's OK with me. If anything it might lure in people who normally won't watch a film in another language.
