A Tribute to a Great Gentleman

This is indeed a sad day for all of us fans of Turner Classic Movies as we say good bye to legendary film historian, the face and voice of TCM, Robert Osborne. Robert generated true warmth, wit, and charm like a favorite uncle who would come into our homes and delight us all with his encyclopedic knowledge of behind the scenes facts, anecdotes, and trivia about the greatest films of Hollywood's Golden Era. Robert's passion was the movies, and the joy they brought to other…

A Pioneer

When I found TCM I felt as though I had come home. Robert Osbourne seemed to embody the essence of the GAOH, grace, style and a true gentleman. His knowledge about the movies, the stars, the interactions, the industry was amazing. When you watched him interview an actor it was more of a conversation than an interview. He had an ease and warmth that appeared to make everyone feel at home.…

Never a Truer Gentleman

Robert was a true gentleman and always handled himself as such.  He had a warmth and kindness that caught everyone up in his interest in the motion pictures he spoke about.  I will miss him and his enthusiasm when I view films on TCM.

How I'm Surviving Without Cable TV (but not without TCM)

I finally got thoroughly fed up with my provider and canceled not only my cable but also my land line. I now have only Internet.

The thing I was most concerned about was losing TCM. It's really the only channel I care about. But because of another account with a different provider, I am able to log into Watch TCM, which is live streaming of the channel over the Internet. This is the most amazing thing. Here I am in my quiet house, without TV or telemarketers calling all the time, and…

Direct TV Now

As many of you know I do not subscribe to cable or satellite dish. I've just felt that the price was unreasonable for the few channels my wife and I watch. Consequently, I have not watched Turner Classic Movie channel in a very long time. Recently AT&T announced a new service that allows you to…

Not just raising it a little but actually almost double what we were paying effective in October. Fortunately we pay our bill annually and so it will not affect us until next July, but…

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
