    'Fast Charlie The Moonbeam Rider' is a fun flick about the nation's first cross-country motorcycle race. Its set in the early 1930s and has a lot of cool, old-skool, vintage 'sickles and with lots of mud and dirt flying and revving of gears. David Carradine stars; Brenda Vaccaro as well as LQ Jones, and the venerable Jesse Vint (of 'Vint Brothers' fame). Originally written as a vehicle (vehicle, get it? get it?) for Steve McQueen. Produced by Roger Corman!

    Movie Trivia

    Thanks star and lavender. (I hope one day, someone releases that picture of the human pyramid). Once upon a time, a director was really not sure about using a mechanical horse for some riding scenes in his movie. The director sent a crew member to a amusement park to inspect the mechanical horses. The owner of the park saw the crew member and offered one of his mechanical horses to the director to use in the movie. Name the movie, the director and the owner of the park that loaned the mechanical horse.
  8. A movie which won no awards and is rarely on any lists of recommended movies to watch is: Sny (1993). I like it very much because of the depictions of how different people cope with the concept of time travel in dreams. The overarching message of enormity of the fall from the elegance of the past to the crudity of the present is heavy-handed but it does fit the time of the movie when it was often necessary to actually hit people over the head in order to make them aware of important concepts. This was Amaliya Mordvinova's first movie and so her style has not yet gelled but she is quite fun to watch in maintaining one character in two different roles in life.
  9. Sunday, March 24 noon. Twentieth Century (1934). A Howard Hawks screwball comedy to rival His Girl Friday (1940). 4 a.m. L’aine des Ferchaux/Magnet of Doom (1963). I recorded this the last time it was on but still haven’t seen it. Jean-Pierre Melville directs. Jean-Paul Belmondo and Charles Vanel star.

    Trump's Biggest Whoppers

    Trump is fond of saying "You don't have a country when ..." How about when your campaign conspires with and gets help from Vladimir Putin to win the election to the highest office and there are no repercussions afterward.

    I Just Watched...

    Burned at the Stake aka The Coming (1982) - 5/10 From writer-producer-director Bert I. Gordon, this supernatural horror tale stars Susan Swift as a 12-year-old girl living in modern day Salem, Massachusetts. She learns that she's the reincarnation of a young girl responsible for the Salem Witch Trials in 1692. When she visits the Witch museum, it awakens the memories of her past life, as well as transporting William Goode (David Rounds), the father of a wrongfully accused girl, into the present. As Susan acts stranger and stranger, an evil presence also makes itself known. Featuring Tisha Sterling as Susan's mom, Guy Stockwell as the family doctor, Albert Salmi as the police chief, John Peters, Jennine Babo, and Beverly Ross. This was better written than many similar films that I've watched recently, and Susan Swift (of Audrey Rose fame) is good in the lead role. My main complaint would be that the cinematography, or the print that I saw, or both, was too dark to make out much of the action for a greater part of the film.

    Problem with "A Slight Case of Murder."

    OK, that makes more sense

    I Just Watched...

    Blood Song aka Dream Slayer (1982) - 4/10 Crippled high school girl Marion (Donna Wilkes, star of 80's exploitation classic Angel) begins having strange dreams that are actually psychic visions of the murderous activities of escaped mental patient and homicidal maniac Paul (Frankie Avalon!!!). It seems they formed a psychic bond when she received some of his blood during a transfusion. Now he's determined to make her his next victim. Also featuring William Kirby Cullen as Marion's boyfriend, Richard Jaeckel and Antoinette Bower as her parents, Dane Clark as the town sheriff, and Lenny Montana (who also gets a screenplay credit!!!) as "Skipper". This will appeal to both fans of Frankie Avalon, who have never seen him in a role like this before, as well as to those hate him, as they'll enjoy the going over he receives in the finals last act. Avalon's weapon of choice is a really small hatchet, which makes things even sillier. This was the last acting role of former pro wrestler and reputed mob heavy Montana, who most know from role as Luca Brasi in The Godfather. Filmed in and around Coos Bay and North Bend, Oregon.

    Do You Know Me?

    Sorry, Princess, but I'm not Edna May Oliver. My time in the movies was briefer than hers. My 29 films were made between 1929 and 1933. Since I died from heat prostration in 1933, that was the end of my film career.

    Painfully inappropriate casting.

    So this comment should be in the 'painfully appropriate roles' thread.
