Me either, except for the ones we get shown at Brandon Oaks...the one last night was the Gershwin flick with Robert Alda...saw it when I was about 12 I think.

Yeah. They show those old flics here, too. When I was at The Arbors, one of the other residents (a former Jesuit priest, who had left the priesthood to get married) mamaged the movies, and generally showed things he liked--he was fan of Jodie Foster, and I remember he showed "Nell", which blew him away. He'd watched it half a dozen times, as I remember. Damn, I wish I still lived there. . . .

Once in a while we get a recent release (Saving Mr. Banks was one) but we are more likely to get Forrest Gump.

There was also some relatively recent prequel to the Wizard of Oz

I didn't like that movie, especially James Franco's performance.

Nor the implication that he had the hots for Glinda...The only Oz movie that ever did justice to the original written works was the Garland one and it was not without its flaws...Lahr was awful as the lion, Garland was really too old for Dorothy and Billie Burke didn't do justice to Glinda...Margaret Hamilton's witch was the best thing in it...Where's Jon Conrad when you need him?????????

Garland was 16, wasn't she? They couldn't get Shirley Temple, so had to use Judy.

Lahr was awful as the lion? Are we talking about the same movie?

Bert Lahr's performance was a classic. It couldn't have been improved upon. I've never heard anyone call it awful before (and I hope never to again).
