I assume that means someone that carries coal, who would be from a state like West Virgina. (but I'm just guessing).

Having been exposed to TopBilled on the old TCM forums site, I hardly consider him a "liberal."
Well, as we have discussed, how one classifies another often depends on how one views themselves. TB is clearly to the left of Marysara (who posts often about political topics at TB's forum, along with good old darkblue, but with almost no one taking their bait).
Dare I ask where is dear old Nipkow?
The fifty foot woman movie was on a few weeks back and I immediately thought of him. :(

Actually I was confused as to why someone would post about Cole Porter on a thread about the trolling and login problem.

I doan know about Nipkow. I hope he is well. Prolly still waiting for Hot Spell. He could come to CA. and we could serve one up. Last I remember his cable company made TCM more expensive.

I would see him post once in a while on TB's site, but just checked and he hasn't been on since March... Almost shocked me when I finally looked up a synopsis of Hot Spell during the TCM board's years that it actually did kind of sound interesting and wasn't some far reaching tangent. 😆

I saw it many years ago when one of the networks showed it. (Hot Spell). I don't remember much about it, sort of a steamy southern melodrama/soap opera. Odd mix of actors.

Despite Nipknow's affection for the femme fatales of '50s horror/sci fi, he drew the line at Marla English, who plays a greedy woman from Pittsburgh seeking gold in the African jungle. She's as vile as they come, and Nipkow hated her.

She starts out as this:

And, thanks to the talents of mad doctor Tom Conway, becomes this:

He was born as Krekor Ohanian. Adopted the stage name Mike Connors and then for The Ten Commandments and a few other films his agent decided to use his basketball playing days nickname of "touch". He hated it and went back to Mike.

I was thinking more along the lines of touching Marla English, but to each his own.
