    One of the most touching tributes I’ve ever seen. Peter O’Toole blowing the match out at the end… I wept. Thank you.

    I love the “TCM Remembers”. I wish they were on a DVD. These videos are like watching a tribute to a family member who has passed away; actually those actors/writers/directors were like family to me. I cry each time I watch them and thank God for allowing them to be a part of my life. Thank you so much, TMC for Remembering our loved ones who passed. Please consider making a DVD collection of the years gone by.

    Thank you for bringing up the subject, Suzy Nichols. Apparently, I’m not alone in my desire for a “TCM Remembers” DVD.
    I’ve been a TCM viewer for many years now, taking the time to simply tape the individual “TCM Remembers” segments over the years and commit them to a DVD. Unfortunately, even though I kept my recorder going 24 hours a day to catch the 2013 tributes, I never found it when I played back all those many hours of recordings.
    Come on TCM, why do you not offer these striking and memorable segments on DVD? There certainly seems to be a market for them out there. Please consider it.
