I enjoyed the documentary a lot. It wasn't too scholarly but I don't think the Cannes Film Festival is all that edifying anymore either. My favorite "bit" in the program was seeing multi-faceted and multi-titled Richard Schickel - the program's Writer / Director / Producer / Commentator - ...

"The Bartender"

Here's my script for my "fantasy" submission for the TCM Guest Programmer Contest. It is titled "The Bartender" for an all-too-appropriate reason. ( With a tip of the hat and heart-felt thanks to all the Classic Cinema College contributors from whom I took much inspiration .) THE...

When I was little, I would make time for every showing of The World, The Flesh and The Devil (The Harry Belafonte/Inger Stevens film) whenever it would show up on television. I don't know why I was so interested or entertained. Perhaps it was the idea of having an entire city to one's self in which ...

Hollis -
Keep an eye on the Encore Westerns Channel. They slip in a letterboxed film once in awhile.

This month the channel is showing The Good, The Bad and The Ugly in a letterbox format. And I believe the channel has shown The Wild Bunch in letterbox also.

Re: the HAIRY APE

Hello Mr. Ark - Re: THE HAIRY APE Bendix is incredible in this film, one of the rare opportunities he had to carry the weight of a truly dramatic film. [snip] THE HAIRY APE suffers a bit from some crude direction, but overall an oddly compelling and emotionally solid (thanks to Bendix) film. Isn't ...

Re: Always the last to know...

Well, at least I'm catching up with the longer termed TCMers. If the DeMille doc is a few years old, it begs the question: What is Mr. Brownlow's latest project? I wonder what he's working on now? Not that I really pay attention to his stuff but, after a little research, I found out that these proj...

Re: Wings

I'm bleery-eyed, but content, having just gotten in from seeing Cecil B. De Mille – American Epic , Kevin Brownlow 's documentary on the King of Epic Hokum. I noticed that the documentary was 1) presented by Turner Classic Movies; and 2) was made in 2004. Does this mean y'all have already see...

Anybody see the pair of French films My Father's Glory and My Mother's Castle ? Two of the very few newer films I really admire. If you check them out, definitely start with My Father's Glory as My Mother's Castle is a sequel to the first film. I forget when and how I came across them (early Bravo?)...

I still can't register into the Forums.

The website recognizes me on Non-Forum pages as it reads "Greetings hlywdkjk" near the top of those pages, but I get a "HTTP Server Error 500" everytime I try to register or post in Forum area.

Re: Scotty & Midge

A Vertigo piece would be swell, wouldn't it? I could go to the grave of Carlotta Valdez, buy a nosegay at Podesta Baldacchi, gaze at Ms. Valdez' portrait and then race up the stairs of the campanile only to find Robert Osborne (dressed as a nun) at the precipice! Thank Goodness you didn't think of ...

It must be tiresome for Mr. Scott to travel around with his own choir.
But I didn't even know he had one.
