GODZILLA (and Rodan) VS. MONSTER ZERO: Nick Adams in his Japanese period. Observing the Planet X guys spiriting Godzy and Rodan away in giant bubbles, Adams can't believe his eyes: "Gedda loada DAT!"

This is one of the many reasons why it is a bad movie - I just couldn't believe that TOHO did this and this is got to be the lowest (this 25 second clip) point of the movie itself. TCM rated this movie One Star and if I had it my way ... it would be half that.

Poor Godzilla, lol. Lost all dignity after his magnificently frightening introduction to the world in the original movie. (w/o Raymond Burr)

Spent the first day of my summer vacation enjoying TWO ON A GUILLOTINE. Max Steiner gives the cute rabbit its very own musical theme. For plot purposes it is deemed necessary (but highly unlikely for movie buffs to believe) that stalwart Connie Gilchrist be pushed over the housekeeper's edge by this adorable bunny who makes her run screaming from the mansion. There's a nod to Hitchcock by director William Conrad -- catch Dean and Cricket's NORTH BY NORTHWEST kiss at the nightclub.

FLAP, 1970. Fiercely awful. Directed by Sir Carol Reed, if you can believe it.

And I thought RPM was Anthony Quinn's worst film.

"I'M PISSED OFF!"
"About what, Flapping Eagle?"
"EVERYTHING!!!!"

Shelley Winters shows up for about eight minutes, tops, as a local madam named Dorothy Bluebell who happens to be Tony's "love" interest. We are not informed if she is supposed to be Native American.

Victor Jory does an interesting turn as Walter Brennan.

I have to confess a phobia about Shelley Winters, but found it amusing that TCM slipped her 24 hours in under the wire. Maybe they thought no one would notice? (Is it possible not to notice Shirl?).

Next year, TCM,...please, could the last day of SUTS be devoted to Roscoe Karns, Jimmy Gleason, Frank McHugh or Ruth Donnelly...or one of the other dear character actors who brighten so many films?

Yay, I'm baaaaack! Thank you, moira! :D :D :D

A little of Shelley goes a long, long way. She's the only actress I know who can be whiny and frightening at the same time -- I'm thinking of WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH HELEN and WHO SLEW AUNTIE ROO.

I love all those character actors you mention. James Gleason, what a treasure. I'm particularly fond of him in HERE COMES MR. JORDAN.
