"Dana Andrews was one of the most underrated actors in film history, and as much a Southern gentleman as Randolph Scott. But curiously Andrews didn't have much of a Southern accent in his films or real life despite having been born in…"

Let's connect the stars!  I saw this game on a classic film blog and thought it would be fun to play here.  This is not a closed group...any and all of you are welcome to jump in at any time.  The object is to connect two stars in as few "moves" as…Continue

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

Started by Patti in Other Movie Topics. Last reply by Alyssa on Wednesday. 173 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

    Halloween Won’t Hurt You: Or, How My Daughter Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Blob

    It’s not that I advocate terrifying children, I hope you understand, but… well, let me start at the beginning. When I was 8 years old, my dad used to wake me up late at night to join him in watching the classic Creature Features package on local TV. The deal was I had to finish […]

    Brains! (Think about it.)

    Wrap your head around this: the word “brain” appears in Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus just once. Chapter 4, to be precise, in a throwaway line about everything that dies with a man’s body. The business of the Frankenstein Monster getting a bad start in life due to the implantation of […]

    Mummy Dearest

    Hammer Films produced four Mummy movies between 1959 and 1971 and this coming Saturday (Oct. 25th) TCM is airing one of my favorites, Seth Holt’s BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY’S TOMB (1971). This unabashedly sexy horror extravaganza was the last Mummy movie produced by the ‘Studio that Dripped Blood’ and thanks to a great cast and […]

    The Fog of Horror

    Later tonight, as in tomorrow morning on the east coast, TCM airs The Fog, the 1980 John Carpenter movie that, like a lot of John Carpenter movies, opened to middling reviews only to be heartily welcomed into the horror canon later.  This also happened with his 1982 remake of The Thing from Another World, this time […]

    Bowling for Dollars: Kingpin (1996)

      Farrelly Brothers movies are akin to family gatherings. They are filled with extreme neuroses, unexpected violence, and deep undercurrents of affection. Their films are even populated with friends and relatives from their Rhode Island home. Listen to any of their audio commentaries and you’ll find that half the actors are bankers and car salesman who […]
