TCM Turner Classic Movies
Dear Friends and Members of www.Flyermall.com:
We thought it would be a good idea to have a link into the most interesting television channel called TCM, Turner Classic Movies.
For those of you who do not have this channel, you are missing out on classic movies full of history from the last century without commercial interruption. Films like Casablanca, The Lost Horizon, Citizen Cane, For Whom the Bells Toll, The Out-of-Towners, Zorba the Greek, Imitation of Life, to name a few.
You will fall in love with the original actors such as: James Cagney, Burt Lancaster, Anthony Quinn, Bette Davis, Montgomery Cliff, Edward G. Robinson, Mickey Rooney, Barbara Stanwyck, Doris Day, Eva and Zsa Zsa Gabor, Johnny Weismuller, etc., etc.
You will also have complete explanations about the film’s history, its director, the year the movie was produced, the actors involved and anything of significance within the movie. It is a movie channel that requires your complete attention, relaxation and focus.
TCM indulges you into a quiet, reflective atmosphere which literally takes you away from the fast, hectic pace of this modern-day lifestyle.
We suggest you investigate obtaining this channel through your cable television provider.

Of course he likes more films and actors, but we can not just place them all here, so he named a few off the top of his head, which left the most lasting impressions.
However, after reading through the list of actors, we were stumped at why he said Ice Cube. Our first question was, “Mr. Goudas, what do you do? Listen to rap in the car”? He replied, “I like Ice Cube because he is extremely dedicated to his work. He is quite versatile, and adapts quickly to market changes. He likes to get involved with all aspects of his industry, including directing, producing, acting, as well as composing and song writing, and accordingly will be one of the most talked about figures over the next 50 years.
I will be dead and long gone, and then you will realize what I am talking about.”
