Catching up on some 'classics' from TMC

The past few weeks I DVRd some classic movies from TCM, and got around to watching them this week. These are movies I'm certain everyone else has watched over the years, but I never got around to watching. Here's what I did watch so far:

'Laura' - excellent movie. I was hooked on the movie every step of the way.

'A Star Is Born' - never saw this Judy Garland version, and fell in love with this. She really was at her best in this film, as was James Mason. Both should have won Oscars. I can't believe how Streisand ruined this engaging story 22 years after.

'Cabin in the Sky' - this has got to be my favorite of the three I watched. Absolutely loved this movie, the music, the choreography. I can understand how the audience fell in love with Lena Horne back then. Ethel Waters was fantastic.

TCM is by far my all-time favorite cable station.

I think that Judy Garland and James Mason have fantastic chemistry . It is too early in the morning for my brain to pull the song up - but in the opening scene when he is drunk at the star studded event and he wanders out while Judy and the guys are singing and she has to make Norman part of the act so it looks like Movie Star Norman Maine is doing a great comedy skit. He is so twinkly and really enjoying Jusy. Love that scene.

TCM is my favorite channel, too. When I had COX cable it wasn't part of my 'package deal' (I had to move up a level which was more than I could afford). Six months ago, I 'cut the cord' and went with YouTubeTV - and now I pay much less and get TCM in my service. So many movies to catch up with !

Something is up at TCM and I think it's not long for this world. They only have about the same dozen movies in constant rotation week after week. Most of them have been mentioned above. I think they have lost all the rights to most movies due to studio mergers and streaming channels.
