Bob TCM Schedule for May

May 21 is Bob's birthday and TCM is celebrating with a mini film marathon. Their Own Desire is one I've never seen before, so I'm bouncing off the wall for that opportunity. If you're challenged for time, or recording space, my personal favs from the play list, in order, are: Another Language; No More Ladies; Hide-Out; and Live, Love and Learn.

Love in the Rough is listed in my copy of Now Playing as a musical. Is it really?

It's been a while since I've seen it, but I do remember a singing sequence with Benny Rubin & a woman at the clubhouse. I think there's another scene as well. It's certainly not a Busby Berkeley production, but folks do break out into song.

Does Bob sing - y'know, I can't remember!

I saw HIDE-OUT a few months ago and was charmed. I saved a copy on video. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it. :)

Best wishes,

Charmed is the *perfect* word!

The golf scenes were great to watch. What course did they use to shoot all the action?

Good question - let me post that & see if anyone knows.
