Walk on the Wild Side (1962): starring Jane Fonda, Capucine, Anne Baxter, & Barbara Stanwyck. I have never heard of this film, but on the DVD case, there's an inscription that reads "This is an adult picture." So I guess I'm in for a treat.

An interesting 2011 Australian film called THE EYE OF THE STORM. It stars Charlotte Rampling and Judy Davis as a dying mother and her troubled daughter. It can be streamed on Hulu.

The Long, Long Trailer, starring Lucy and Desi. I'm a huge fan of their tv show, I Love Lucy (for anyone having a mental block lol), and decided to give this one a try. I'm super tired though from a 2-show day today so I'm thinking I'll have to wait for tomorrow to finish it.


This is my favorite film of all time. I'm not exaggerating, I've probably seen it over a hundred times.

I just watched WYOMING MAIL on YouTube. Someone uploaded a bunch of great Universal westerns. Now I'm starting SASKATCHEWAN which features Alan Ladd & Shelley Winters.

THE STAR with Bette Davis on TCM.  One of my favorites.  I love seeing a young Natalie Wood in this one.

THE FURIES (1950) on Hulu. It's been several years since I'd seen it. Stanwyck and Dame Judith Anderson are superb.

Wending my way through Edward the King, Disc One (1975) where Annette Crosbie chews the scenery as a young Queen Victoria and Robert Hardy's German accent sounds faintly ridiculous as Prince Albert but I've gotten used to both. Surprised to see a very young Charles Sturridge as young Bertie (boy Edward), the same who later distinguished himself as a director including Where Angels Fear to Tread and A Handful of Dust (to name two) and who, in the present drama, portrays the young Prince trying to grow up despite the pernicious influence of his parents. There is great impetus to hang with this because when Bertie finally grows up he will be portrayed by the wonderful actor, Timothy West, who was fantastic as Porfiry in Crime and Punishment (with John Hurt as Raskolnikov) a few years later.

It used to play a lot on the Fox Movie Channel, and the print there was very good.

 

Okay, makes sense. There was no Fox Movie Channel logo on the print I found on YouTube. Maybe it's a Fox Archives release and that's the copy published online. Such a good movie.

Someone published the best looking print I have ever seen of THE SECRET OF CONVICT LAKE on YouTube. I never watched this film before because all the other copies had such poor print quality. What a great story, and I don't think TCM has ever aired it.

A Republic western on Hulu called A MAN ALONE. It stars (and was directed by) Ray Milland.

Password--​early 60s, Betty White and Shelley Berman--a woman paired with Berman was a housewife with a daughter named Taffy--now I can't stop thinking of a woman about 60 named Taffy around somewhere today... :)
