These REAL oldies (early 30's and 40's ) are getting me down. Also those films w/ambiguous titles (Office Wife) are so outdated.

What would I like to see?-when I think of it I will let you know.

Yeah,  I know what you mean. How about 'She Done Him Wrong' or 'His Kind of Woman' hahaha.

I do not pay attention to the titles of the movies. My eyes go to what actors are in the movie. 

Maybe because on the guide the title is at the top away from the subject and the actors names.

Re: Complaint about TCM

[ Edited ]

I'm not understanding the complaint. 

 

TCM should no longer show films from the 30s and 40s?

 

This has been the mission statement from Day 1.

And I'm just the opposite.  Those are the eras I prefer to see.

 

To each their own.

I love TCM. 

I've never seen many of these movies or actors/actresses and enjoying the history of these old classics.

 

I especially love the silent era.

@Group 5 minus 1 And you are watching them because...?????

 

Do you need another way to watch entertainment, or maybe a book?   Don't understand how things you don't watch on tv can keep you watching.

Comcast took TCM out of my line-up and I miss it dearly.  I LOVE old movies and can accept the titles, knowing it was a sign of the times.

They may show all the films they want,after all they own the channel,however I have noticed an over abundance of these oldies. And those titles,I believe,were used to get our parents(mine) into the theater because they hinted at something the Hayes office would not allow.
