TCM in HD on AT&T

I was flipping around the channels last night and ran into TCM HD for the first time. Although it sounds like the bulk of the movies, if not all, are upconverted to HD, the picture certainly is sharper. If you are an AT&T Uverse customer, be sure to check it out (added to the lineup May 10).

I've seen a handful of true HD classic films, all wide-screen Jimmy Stewart, on HDNet Movies. It'll be interesting to see how this progresses.

Life Movie Photos

The Life magazine archive on Google is now starting to have film stills appear:

If you do any searching, so far the only way I've been able to locate the stills is by searching for "cin." A handful of photos are tagged to their appropriate movie, such as Flight Command and Johnny Eager.

Architectural Digest - May 2010

The May issue of AD includes Leading Ladies at Home, or as they describe it: "Beauty, talent and a sense of style—AD celebrates 10 silver screen legends memorably captured in the privacy of home." On quick glance, the online slideshow accompanying the article includes Joan Crawford, Carole Lombard, and more. A separate article on Ronald Reagan is also included.

I'm just wondering if this a modification of they're yearly Hollywood at Home issue or if that was in the April issue.

Wanted: The Youngest Profession

Anyone have a copy of this film that they might be able to share? Looks like fun. No, I don't think I'd be this crazy in 1943 - hmm, but then again...

Gotta Love Digital

Three cheers for getting copies of Photoplay and other fan magazines digitized on

I've started digging through some of the files already to find any Bob articles. If you do download/look at any of the issues, I've found the PDF files quite usable, especially when text searching.

and found a pair of shoes I'd love to get...
