Do you attend concerts?

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?

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

Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that his death was a suicide, a rep did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”…

    In a Frame: Out of the Past (1947)

      Jeff Markham knew Kathie would not arrive, but he sat there and drank anyway. He was resigned to his premonitions, seemingly able to tell the future but powerless to stop it. “I think I’m in a frame…I don’t know. All I can see is the frame. I’m going in there now to look at […]

    Pre-Code Primer: There’s More to Pre-Code Movies Than Sin

    This month, TCM turns its Friday Night Spotlight on Classic Pre-Code Movies. What better way to end the week than to watch 24 hours of pre-Code musicals, dramas, gangster flicks, and comedies. Viewers are fascinated by the frank portrayals of sexuality, prostitution, illicit romances, and strong-willed women that are found in those movies released between […]

    The Unexpected Treasures of Cinema

    Today is Alan Ladd’s day here at TCM and one of the movies being shown is The Iron Mistress, which I had the pleasure of writing up for TCM not long ago in anticipation of today.  The movie is about Jim Bowie, inventor of the knife that bears his name.  By “about” I mean that […]

    How to like everything

    My wife once accused me of liking every movie I see. As a criticism, that’s a character flaw I think I can live with.  In fact, it’s hard to even see it as an insult.  I’ve got a number of pop culture passions—Godzilla, Doctor Who, Batman, silent comedy… and I’ve always felt alienated from their […]

    Good stuff! Gimmie some of that good stuff!

    I am taking five from talking about death in any form to talk about  one of our favorite things. Who doesn’t like good stuff?! (Answer: no one.) The contents of today’s Good Stuff! column will reflect some lovely things I have either gotten in the mail, free of charge (for being, I presume, awesome) or […]
