" Yes, there is one curious thing missing in the beautifully pristine clip. The complete absence of Colleen Moore! We don't see her in the footage at all. What's with that?"

"Here's a link to the Warner Archive site, there is a 3 minute excerpt from Colleen Moore's Why Be good with some great jazz music, I may be wrong but judging by the reed section in the band it sounds like the Coon - Sanders Orchestra"

Here's the Character, Name the Movie (a game)

Started by Patti in Other Movie Topics. Last reply by Mad on Tuesday. 175 Replies

Let's see how well we classic film fans know the names of the characters of the films we watch.  It's easy to play.  Someone names a character (well-known or lesser known character, but the lesser knowns will, of course, be more challenging).  The…Continue

OK HERE'S ONE FOR OUR GANG : IF YOU COULD COME BACK AS A STAR FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF HOLLYWOOD, WHO WOULD IT BE? WHY?My first pick would have to be Marion Davies - even though Hearst kinda suffocated her, she really lived a charmed life at the San…Continue

I'm kind of surprised that the "Social Club" area doesn't get used more. I'm a member on several other boards that are subject driven but the social areas are the places where I get to know members more personally.So, I thought I'd open a discussion…Continue

Any classic dramas ever made you cry?

Started by Miss Kubelik in Classic Dramas. Last reply by Kimberly Oegerle Jun 28. 184 Replies

I don't cry at movies, as a rule, though I plead guilty to sobbing through the last 10 minutes of The Bridges of Madison County. I'm a hopeless romantic, what can I say?Have any of you ever choked up, even a little bit, at one of your favorite…Continue

Looking for a Good Cat Name (classic film-related)

Started by Rosie Sayer in Social Club. Last reply by Rosie Sayer Jun 23. 36 Replies

I'm getting a new cat, a Russian Blue. My previous cat, whom I gave to my son, is named Dashiell, sort of after Dashiell Hammett (who wrote The Thin Man and The Maltese Falcon), but also because I just liked the name. "Dash" also makes a good…Continue

What was the last "classic" movie you watched?

Started by Ktrek in Other Movie Topics. Last reply by Alyssa Jun 22. 302 Replies

I thought I would add a thread to discuss the last "classic"  movie you watched. As opposed to just any movie. I might start a thread for modern films later. I would prefer that you post more than just a title.KevinContinue

    Mask up for Halloween!

    There’s something about slipping on a mask that changes a person, something in the blood, something that reacts to a race memory of ritual, to a time when we were all more personally connected to this world. That’s why so many of us love Halloween, a Pagan custom (Kirk Cameron be damned – both on […]

    Halloween Viewing Recommendations with a Feminine Touch

    Halloween is fast approaching and tonight TCM is starting the party early with a batch of great haunted house films beginning at 5PM PST (8PM EST) followed by a 24-hour classic horror movie marathon that’s sure to please the most finicky horror connoisseur. With so many terrifically terrifying films to choose from I decided to […]

    To Save and Project: The 12th MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation

      Late last month, on the outrage machine known as Twitter, Variety tweeted the following: “Most films and TV shows are now available online legally, says a new study”. As with most provocative headlines, it turned out to be incredibly misleading. The “study” was commissioned by NBC Universal and performed by audit, tax and advisory […]
