Re: CURSE OF THE CRYING WOMAN (reply)
Back in the 1965-66 season, WABC in NYC aired the K. Gordon Murray package for months, every title played on Sat at 330PM and I saw each one. The two of them that I liked best were THE CURSE OF THE CRYING WOMAN and THE WITCH'S MIRROR. On...

I will never forget the one-liner in the TV section of The New York Times for the showing of MIDNIGHT LACE..."Dial M For Mediocrity."That was it.

Re: Tammy Grimes (reply)
That TAMMY GRIMES SHOW premiered on the same day and time as a sci-fi series that was boldly going where no man has gone before. Tammy didn't even get to complete a five-week mission.

Re: HOLD BACK TOMORROW (1955) (reply)
I remember that when I was about ten in 1961-62, the Haas films were airing on WCBS on The Late, Late Show. The descriptions seemed the same for each one, older man with a much younger wife finds out that she has a lover and he plans...

I'm probably going to be barred from the forum for this, but is shutting the site down except for discussing Zacherley not going a bit too far? I'm a few days short of my 65th birthday, and I've lived in NYC all of my life. So, I know of...

Re: TCM Wine (reply)
How long ago was it that they announced that Eddie Muller would be doing things for TCM. One can't be blamed for thinking it would be more intros for a regularly scheduled noir film. But no, he's doing Wine Club commercials.

Re: What Was Your First? (reply)
The very first was DEAD MAN'S EYES and I was just six years old - early 1958. I was home ill, my mother had some errand to run and I was on my own for an hour or so. I knew that Lon Chaney was in a lot of horror films that TV Guide...

Re: TCM January 2017 (reply)
rvoyttbots - I don't normally pick on typos, but just want to correct THE DARK TOWER which has a really nifty early role for Herbert Lom who seems to be in full Charles Boyer mode. It may even be the highlight of the month for me.

I could swear that Cozzi had a picture of himself printed in FM circa 1965 or so. Only thing is that he was wearing what appeared to be  Phantom of the Opera-style make-up or mask.

Dassin was fortunate, the Poe short was his only one and a lavish one even given the single set and small cast. I think it was Garson Kanin who got Dassin the "in" with Leo the Lion and the rest is history.Fred Zinnemann did some in both...
