yeah, i received my tcm program guide and noticed the wealth of bob films...on the 24th i believe ( though of course his b-day is the 21th.) have you seen 'when ladies meet' or 'hide-out'?? those are two of my favorites.:) looking forward to finally seeing 'shipmates' and 'fugitive lovers,' barring any famous old celebrity deaths of course.

Hide-Out gives me goosebumps. I didn't care for the ending...I thought the cops would let him off!

i don't know why i said i had received my may tcm guide. i must have been thinking of the april one. i have, however looked at the may listings online.;)

the part i love most about hide-out is the obviously improvised barnyard scene. when bob tells the chickens "don't make me call you" it totally reminds me of something i would say.;p
