Demetrius and the Gladiators is truly a guilty pleasure.  Jay Robinson is a hoot and don't forget Michael Rennie, Debra Paget and Ernest Borgnine who try to bring a wee bit of dignity to the proceedings.


Anne Bancroft also has a role,.during her early starlet days at 20th Century Fox, and looks quite beautiful, if not having too much to do.

Who else but TCM would have an Anton Walbrook evening?

 

8 p.m.  The Red Shoes (1948)

 

10:30 p.m.  The Soldier and the Lady (1937)

 

midnight.  I Accuse!  (1958).  He’s terrific in this one.

 

Now if they could only dig out a couple of his German films such as …

 

Salto Mortale (1931) by E.A. Dupont

Viktor and Viktoria (1933) by Reinhold Schunzel where Walbrook takes the James Garner part.

 

When I first read this post I thought that VKTOR AND VIKTORIA (1933) was airing.

1 a.m.  The Mysterious Lady (1928).  A Garbo that I have never seen!  Lovely.

 

2:45  The Marriage of Maria Braun (1979).  I’ve seen this Fassbinder film a few times.  Hanna Schygulla is terrific in it.

Hopefully Alain Delon will one day be given a day during Summer Under The Stars.

That would be pretty amazing.  I suppose it would involve a few premieres.

8:15 a.m.  Canada gets a substitution for The Asphalt Jungle which is Once a Thief (1965) with Alain Delon and Ann Margret.  I’ll take it.

noon.  The Bastard.  Which is it?  The Swedish Eva Dahlbeck film or the Rita Hayworth caper film, Buy the Cats?   My money is on the latter.

 

The Andrew Sisters are tops in …

 

9:45 p.m. Buck Privates (1941) and 

11:15 p.m.  In the Navy (1941)

[...]So, having decided I'm probably not a fan, I'm only going to watch Alphaville as an Akim Tamiroff fan (though I bet they dubbed his awesome voice.)[...]

 

Okay, so I wasn't converted by Alphaville. Something about these Godard films- with their continuous ultra-hip, largely nonsensical exchanges between the leads- causes my attention to drift. Although it did have it's moments; Akim Tamiroff's part was brief, but entertaining, and it looked like he wasn't even dubbed! I enjoyed the noir-spoofing; tense music cues for nothing, sudden spurts of crazy violence, and whatnot. Yeah, I almost liked it, but... I must not be hip enough.

8 p.m.  Demetrius and the Gladiators (1954) with the one and only, Victor Mature!  A guilty pleasure.  Jay Robinson reprises his carpet-chewing role as Caligula.  Great fun.

Thursday, September 17

 

11 a.m.  Nightfall (1957).  A Jacques Tourneur film that I haven’t seen.  With Anne Bancroft and Aldo Ray.

 

8 p.m.  Demetrius and the Gladiators (1954) with the one and only, Victor Mature!  A guilty pleasure.  Jay Robinson reprises his carpet-chewing role as Caligula.  Great fun.

 

Great double bill.  Someone was having some fun …

 

10 p.m. The Conqueror (1956) with John Wayne as Genghis Khan.  The fallout from this one is legendary.

 

4:30 a.m.  Top Secret Affair (1957) A Susan Hayward, Kirk Douglas that I have never seen.

 

Nightfall is a nice noir film.   Aldo Ray is good as a decent guy in the wrong place at the wrong time and Ann Bancroft is always nice to look at.

Any recommendations for tonight's Godard films???

 

I've only seen Breathless and Band of Outsiders by this director, but neither grabbed me. So, having decided I'm probably not a fan, I'm only going to watch Alphaville as an Akim Tamiroff fan (though I bet they dubbed his awesome voice.) It sounds most interesting to me- it also has Howard Vernon in it (of Silence of the Sea and Awful Dr. Orlof fame) who I've liked in what little I've seen him in.

 

This clearly isn't a recommendation, just a random comment for it's own sake. Have fun deciding.

Personally I would go for Breathless and A Woman Is a Woman.  I was a titch disappointed when I saw Pierrot Le Fou and I have yet to see Masculin-Feminin.

Wed., Sept. 16th--All times E.S.T.:

 

9:15 a.m.--"Next Time I Marry"--(1938)--Lucille Ball programmer, sounds like forerunner of The Long, Long, Trailer (1954)--is just over an hour--the beginning of her "Lucy Ricardo" persona?

 

2:15 p.m.--"Phffft!"--(1954)--Judy Holliday & Jack Lemmon & Kim Novak in a comedy about divorce.

Just caught a few minutes of John Ford's The Long Voyage Home (1940) while recording it.  I think it is arguably Ward Bond's and Thomas Mitchell's finest film performances.  A rare lead role for Mitchell.

And Ian Hunter is a standout too.

Wednesday, Sept 16

 

I would have liked to record a couple of the Godard films tomorrow but they are not playing in Canada.  [What, they can’t afford to play a Godard film in Canada?  We’re not talking the South Park movie here.]

 

Arturo may not want to know this but two Mexican movies have been substituted in Canada ...

 

2:15 a.m.  Los Que Volvieron (1947)

 

and

 

4 a.m.  Hermosa Ideal (1948)

Tuesday, September 15

 

6:15 p.m.  Agatha (1979) with Vanessa Redgrave was pretty good as I recall.

 

8 p.m.  The Long Voyage Home (1940)  John Ford does Eugene O’Neil.   A good vehicle for Thomas Mitchell.  I’ve only got a BBC copy which had a lousy print.

 

10 p.m.  The Battle of Midway (1942).  Oscar winning short subject by John Ford.  Amazing colour footage if I have the right film.

 

11:45 p.m.  December 7th (1943).  Directed by Gregg Toland.  Never seen this one.

Monday, September 14

 

7:45 a.m.  My Love Come Back (1940).  I haven’t seen this Olivia de Havilland film.

 

2:45 p.m.  The Strawberry Blonde (1941).  A favourite of a lot of people.

 

An evening of Sidney Lumet.  At some point I hope TCM can dig up a print of A View From the Bridge (1962) with Maureen Stapleton and Raf Vallone.

 

12:30 a.m.  The Verdict (1982).  One of my very favourite Paul Newman films.  And James Mason and Milo O’Shea are great in it too!

The scene where Newman retreats to the bathroom because he cannot breath due to a panic attack is brilliant.

 

and two lesser seen Lumet’s that I have not seen …

 

2:45 a.m.  Just Tell Me What You Want (1980)

 

4:45  Bye Bye Braverman (1968)

 

The book The Films of Olivia DeHavilland says about My Love Come Back;  My love come back to what???    Olivia comes back after her fantastic performance in Gone With the Wind and Jack Warner puts her into this so-so production.    While she had the leading role it wasn't close to being on par with the type of material Jack was giving Bette Davis.  

 

Eddie Albert does help the film have some fine moments  (but hey,  he was known for that).
