    So even with my favourite films, which I've seen a 100 times, I would struggle to remember anything any actor had said in them!!

    P.S Save perhaps the very famous 'one-liners' from The Godfather movies, Jaws ('we need a bigger boat', etc) or The Shining ('Here's Johnny'). Anything more 'obscure' than that, forget it!!

    You're absolutely right, but you can only like what you like, or know what you know! So as for the bit in bold, I'll be sticking with my 'usual suspects'!

    A man should always know his limitations and never be afraid to ask questions.

    Watched the first three Dirty Harry recently on TCM. They must have cleaned them up or something because they look fantastic. Seen them all loads of times over the years but they always had that 'Seventies' look to them. Got the first one on DVD and it has that look. But on TCM HD they look like they were made this year. The background music sound quality is really good too.

    Yeah I know what you mean, and I'm sure it happens. However, I thought you'd have preferred them intact with '70s patina'!

    That super-rich/vibrant colour palette is one of the things I love about watching old Westerns! Valve-powered TV cameras are great...

    Maybe so. If you've got TCM HD check them out. I was amazed. Like watching them for the first time.
