I don't know about Hollywood Steps Out being rare. It's been shown on TCM and is on the Internet.

Here's a listing of the 50+s cartoons that will run this month. https://deadline.com/wp-content/uploads ... /WB100.pdf

Some guesswork would be involved based on time slot and movie length. The remaining time would be the cartoon. I plan to leave more cushion at the start and end in my DVR timer.

Love all these, great favorites to many no doubt. The last time I watched Three Strangers I noticed something fascinating about the Lorre and Greenstreet roles. I will let it be, it's only an opinion, but an interesting take. Not all will agree. Not to be mysterious but I'll just let it go for now. It's probably not that obscure anyway.

And, I STILL say the guy you see in profile while he's sitting at the table during the opening panning shot through Ciro's IS supposed to be George Brent and NOT Don Ameche!!!!!!

(...yeah, THAT'S right...I'm like a freakin' elephant...I NEVER forget...and in THIS case, that thread I started back at the old TCM forums) ;)

LOL

I think you left out an exclamation point (and the most important one too!).

I also think that you are right, Dargo, about the gent sitting with Claudette Colbert being George Brent.

Don't 'cha just hate when that (the permanent perpetuation of erroneous information) happens?

SPOILER question:

I love The Mask of Dimitrios
and every actor and character in it (particularly Victor Francen, in his brief scene). One thing I don't understand, although I've seen the film often -- is why Sydney Greenstreet is in trouble at the end. He throws the money down and says that Lorre should write a book, and that "I'll have a lot of time to read it, where I'm going." What did he do wrong, apart from killing Dimitrios, sort of in self defense, after Dimitrios had shot him?

That's the script that screenwriter Frank Gruber wrote.

Somebody kills somebody. Somebody's got to be arrested.

Perhaps later the police free Peters (Sydney Greenstreet) after they learn the whole story about Dimitrios Makropoulos (Zachary Scott). Perhaps Peters gets sentenced for trying to blackmail Makropoulos and creating a situation that resulted in (premeditated) murder.

Fashion a conclusion that satisfies you.


In the source novel by Eric Ambler, Peters and Makropoulos kill each other.

In any case, a great movie ending: Peters coming down the stairs.
