    Looks like a great series planned. Can’t wait to see it. One thing, the name under the “Streetcar Named Desire” is listed as Kim Novak, it is Vivian Leigh with Marlon Brando.

    I don’t believe it! ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ may be owned by WB now, but it is an MGM film. That’s a poorly-researched slip-up. Plus, as the previous post says, it is indeed Vivian Leigh with Brando, and not Kim Novak, or Kim Hunter, either (who was indeed in the film, but not in this photo.)
    Plus, ‘Gigi’ and ‘An American in Paris’ are also MGM films. WB had nothing to do with making them.

    That Kim Hunter/Vivien Leigh mistake in the “Streetcar” photo caption is unforgiveable. I’m not sure I’m looking forward to this series, after all.

    Thanks for yanking the wrongly-placed MGM pix. A quick visit to IMDb can prevent mistakes like this – or just ask the nearest film buff. In their blurb about the series, ‘Vanity Fair’ fell for the same thing: they included a pic from ‘North By Northwest’ – also an MGM film, just because it says ‘copyright by Warner Bros. Entertainment’ on it. Know your corporate histories, folks!

    Thanks Brian Bach and david e for the sharp eyes. Mistakes have been corrected. We appreciate your feedback.

    One more typo: The caption under the photo for The Spirit of St. Louis reads “James Steward” instead of James Stewart.

    I only caught the tail end of the program last night. Does anyone know where I can get a list of the movies that are featured in this series? Quite a few of the movies from the 60s and 70s I hadn’t seen. Thanks!
