YouTube is my go to app when I want to see something old that is not being broadcast anywhere else. When I had a yen for Designing Women, found it on YouTube. Couldn't find Cold Case, though. Presently being broadcast over the air, so I get to enjoy the music and Jeremy Ratchford again!

 

Today, I wanted to see Flower Drum Song. Now, this isn't a series, but an old movie featuring the music of Rogers and Hammerstein. I can't get the entire movie, but I can listen to and watch some of my favorite songs from the movie.

 

I find that I like movies that feature a single musical director, Max Steiner. With that in mind, I'd like to recommend a series of films featuring Steiner's music: The Corn Is Green, Band of Angels, and Jezebel. Two feature Betty Davis, who is very difficult to find without having to pay an arm and a leg, and Band of Angels features Clark Gable, Yvonne de Carlo, and Sidney Poitier. I have never heard Poitier speak of his role in this film and have always wondered why.

 

Hope this isn't too off topic, but I do enjoy this forum and wanted to share my guilty pleasure (those recommended movies are all set in the 1800s and they all have something to say about women making their way in the world): old movies with mad music scores.

 

Cheers!

I watched Hunter and Gunsmoke too. I probably go back a little farther, I watched Gunsmoke when it was a 30-minute show. I also watched Wyatt Earp with Hugh O'Brien. As a kid I watched Howdy Doddy and my sister had to see Cuckloo Fran and Oliey. Hope I spelled that right. On Saturday mornings my Grandpa and I would watch old Cowboys with Bob Steel, Buck Jones, Tim McCoy, and Lash LaRue to name a few. I loved every minute and I loved my Grandpa too. I was blessed with wonderful grandparents and these great memories. Before that, we listened to the radio. The Lone Ranger on the radio used your imagination but when I saw him on television I never listened to him on the radio again. My Dad said I was ruined by Television but he sure watched a lot of it.

A post saying the world was built by the lowest bidder must not have cable.  Cable, one of those things I have a love-hate relationship with.  It lets me watch the old shows I enjoyed and then ruins it with my bill. Netflix has a lot of old movies and shows and is reasonably priced. If anyone has Spectrum, channel 151 has a lot of old shows almost around the clock. I saw a series I had totally forgotten about,  PeterGunn.

...I could see re-watching Rumpole of the Bailey and Upstairs Downstairs...".

 

It's been awhile, but I think we viewed every episode of Rumpole at least 3 times. We were debating Upstairs/Downstairs. We saw that early on and we might find it too dated or simply not as good as we've now seen 75+ Brit series since that one.  On the other hand, we're going to view 'To Serve Them All My Days' again, which is pretty dated and syrupy. 


I had to watch Rumpole on Public Television because the internet or Cable did not exist. Public Television opened up a new world for me with British TV and shows like Monty Python's Flying Circus. Our Public TV here in Dallas still offers a world of wonderful entertainment.
