I see 'Twice Upon a Time' (1983) is scheduled this week. Very interesting history to that one - apparently an alternate version was produced without the consent of the original producer and HBO showed this "illegitimate" version a couple of times and got sued to cease and desist.

 

There have been several versions run in different venues - but I believe that what TCM will be running will be the official (also known as the "clean") version (much to the displeasure of some viewers who are dying to see the "unclean" one).

 

Whichever, congratulations to TCM's Underground programmers for giving us yet another opportunity to see a rare piece. Doing a bang-up job these days!

kinda liked "Vigilante", though not sure why. I did get a chuckle out of Forster's last 'encounter' with the crooked lawyer. ;)

This is truly an Underground movie, since apparently it was never widely released in the US after a "disappointing" preview in Seattle. It was released in Europe with some editing errors (including a duplicate scene!) unfixed.

The movie has played in some film festivals in recent years, but the TCM airing is the widest exposure this movie has seen.

 

It stars Zach Galligan of GREMLINS fame.

ET and GREMILNS are two of the first movies I remember seeing.

Thanks, TCM, for airing NOTHING LASTS FOREVER!

I was reading the comments for 'Miami Connection' over at IMDb last week and was surprised at how much love there was for this admittedly 'so bad it's good' movie.

 

Not sure who it is that's searching out movies for Underground now, but I think they're doing a pretty good job lately. Not that the movies are good, mind you - that they've been rarely seen is why I think they're doing a good job.

my recording got messed up by the weather, but I liked what I saw.

 

Bummer. After waiting all these years, I'm very thankful to TCM for giving me the opportunity to get that one recorded.

I wondered why I'd never heard of it. Straight to video? Or not even that?

I caught the second half of Nothing Lasts Forever.  It was good to see Imogene Coco and Sam Jaffe; I was sorry to miss Mort Sahl. I hope TCM shows it again.  It's strange that it was never released theatrically, as it's certainly a movie that seems worthy of a cult following.
