To mark either Otto Preminger's 100th or 101st birthday, his censor-pwning rape trial epic Anatomy of a Murder (good James Stewart and Geo C Scott, better Lee Remick) tonight at 8.

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 5 December 2006 16:20 (fourteen years ago) link

tonight's Rob Zombie 2 a.m. thing: Coppola's Dementia 13, followed by I Walked With a Zombie, The Unknown (Chaney & Tod Browning).

My gf, a huge silent fan, was giving me grief for having my b-day on a night when those are playing, morbs. Thank god for the DVR.

Michael White (Miguelito), Friday, 15 December 2006 15:21 (fourteen years ago) link

well, she should be doing the alerts, cuz I posted NEXT Friday's movies (and missed the rarer Browning/Chaneys last Friday)!

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Monday, 18 December 2006 18:41 (fourteen years ago) link

double indemnity was on last night!

Yeah, I was gonna record it, but I got Viridiana instead.

I believe January is JEAN ARTHUR Month!

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Monday, 18 December 2006 20:16 (fourteen years ago) link

Really? you better not be messing with me, Morbs. I heart Jean Arthur.

Ruud Haarvest (KenL), Monday, 18 December 2006 20:39 (fourteen years ago) link

Looks like 17 J.A. films on Tuesdays, Ken! (not History Is Made at Night, alas)

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Monday, 18 December 2006 20:56 (fourteen years ago) link

I still haven't seen A Foreign Affair, grr.

Alfred Soto (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 18 December 2006 20:56 (fourteen years ago) link

I've seen January program guide, and for some reason A Foreign Affair hasn't been include in the J.A. retro. However, sometime in the middle of the month (I forget the date), in the early early morning, at the tail end of a Kirk Douglas set, TCM will be premiering...



Outcast Lemon Mode (sandglocks), Tuesday, 19 December 2006 20:49 (fourteen years ago) link

yesss! WANT TO SEE.

without you i'm nothing (get bent), Tuesday, 19 December 2006 21:01 (fourteen years ago) link

I think they showed A Foreign Affair so many times last year that they burned out their copy.

The belt and suspenders line is on some thread somewhere over on olde-ilx

Ruud Haarvest (KenL), Tuesday, 19 December 2006 22:11 (fourteen years ago) link

TBS ALERT: Crimmus story for 24 hours! DID YOU KNOW?

I don't have TCM, which is a shame bcz I've wanted to see Witchfinder General for a fucking long time. In the meantime I will have to sate myself by listening to "Witchfinder General" by Witchfinder General on repeat.

I Am Curious (George) (Slight Return) (Rock Hardy), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 03:25 (fourteen years ago) link

god... and the production code

without you i'm nothing (get bent), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 03:46 (fourteen years ago) link

Ace in the Hole: 2:30 am, night of 1/24. Try to overlook that it goes kinda candyass in the last 10 minutes (I wonder if Wilder wrote anything else first, or just knew he'd have to please the Code). Also it's back at Film Forum NYC January 12-18.

In the weekly Donen thing (no Bedazzled, hmph) tonight, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at 10, followed by Give A Girl A Break featuring the Champions and young Bob Fosse.

Meet Me in St. Louis on Christmas morning at 11:30 if you want a good cry with the family.

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 14:42 (fourteen years ago) link

Ace in the Hole and Meet Me in St Louis playing in the same 24-hr time frame is like watching Lucifer and Michael leading their respective hosts into battle.

Alfred Soto (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 15:31 (fourteen years ago) link

Well, they're not -- Ace is January 24/25 (tho I like your Christmas Eve programming instincts).

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 15:33 (fourteen years ago) link

apparently Meet Me in St. Louis is on at 2:30 pm Eastern.

My brother-in-law on I Remember Mama: "People paid money to see this?"

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Monday, 25 December 2006 14:49 (fourteen years ago) link

perhaps he'd like i dismember mama better? that was one of my mother's favorite low-budget early 80s horror flicks.

Lauren (lauren), Monday, 25 December 2006 15:13 (fourteen years ago) link

I suggested it!

Margaret O'Brien decapitating the snowmen got the tears flowing today.

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Monday, 25 December 2006 22:56 (fourteen years ago) link

The whole last half hour, or at least up until "Spring," is pretty much me on the verge of losing it, though maybe never more so than when Grandpa saves Judy from her dance card for her last dance in St. Louis.

Hell, I cry at the beginning when I think about how much the maid loves her employers.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Monday, 25 December 2006 23:14 (fourteen years ago) link

The Rock films are tonite, including Dick Lester's "It's Trad, Dad!" And later, on TCM Underground, Vincent Price is..."The Last Man On Earth"

Outcast Lemon Mode (sandglocks), Friday, 29 December 2006 16:04 (fourteen years ago) link

I am so psyched for the VP double feature it's not even funny.

The Many Faces of Gordon Jump (Leon), Friday, 29 December 2006 17:33 (fourteen years ago) link

I never knew Mr. Atoz was Herbert Marshall's butler in Foreign Correspondent until tonight, unless somebody told me on that other thread and I forgot.

Ruud Haarvest (KenL), Sunday, 31 December 2006 04:56 (fourteen years ago) link

Marx Bros all night tonight. Duck Soup right now.

Ruud Haarvest (KenL), Monday, 1 January 2007 01:42 (fourteen years ago) link

I had Night at the Opera on for a few minutes and found I could mouth most of Groucho's opening lines with him.

JEAN ARTHUR Month commences tonight, but no rarities til next week.


well, the guy who tries to push McCrea to his death in FC is Kris Kringle.
