For those of you that are not aware, TCM is having a daily marathon of different actors for the rest of the month. Today is Harold LLoyd. Also Henry Fonda, Ida Lupino, Bette Davis, Gable, Hepburn, etc. Has to be something for everyone in this one.

The other day, James Mason, was featured, which meant I got to see one of my Hitchcock favorites, "North by Northwest."

I looked for 'N by NW' under Cary Grant. Then when I found it under Mason It had already shown.

Thanks for the heads-up Don, I think I'll go to their website and check the schedule.

The best by far movies are the old black and white classics. I love the 1940's era ones. You could tell men from women and so much class, elegance and morals. Turner Classics is on the top of my list!

One of the great things about the old movies is you can actually understand the dialogue as opposed to the "new" actors who mumble their way through the film. I have had to reverse DVD's often just to see if I could figure out what they said. When you see two actors standing in Times Square WHISPERING to each other (with emotion),,,well, go figure. Watched a Garland/Rooney movie yesterday and never missed a word.
