Really? Huh. The public school system fails yet again. 

 

Are you commenting on the poster not knowing the jargon term "CP" or the erroneous use of the word "sublime"?

CAGED is sublime and one of my all-time favorites. Before this I did not know that CP meant Common Prostitute...

Monday, June 26th/27th; Two films rarely shown on TCM are airing.  All times E.S.T.:
 
10:00 p.m. "Funny Face" (1957)--Delightful musical with Audrey, Fred Astaire, and Kay Thompson.  According to a post by Barton_Keyes in the SOTM thread, TCM last aired this one in 2009.
 
2:15 a.m. "War and Peace" (1956)--Adaptation of Tolstoy last aired on TCM in 2010.  Information from post by Barton_Keyes in the SOTM thread.


I love Funny Face. I just watched it for the millionth time last night. My favorite parts are the photo shoot and Fred Astaire & Kay Thompson's "Clap Yo' Hands."

Monday, June 26
 
2:45 p.m.  Caged (1950).  Chicks behind bars with Hope Emerson in command.  This would make a good SCTV sketch.


I love this movie!!

Of course it is in one of my favorite sub genres--ladies in prison.

Yeah, and it's about some guy who rides through the desert on a horse.

 

(...and finds there ain't no one for to give you no pain...there)

 

Let us hope that "some guy" isn't "The Man With No Name."

Sunday, June 25th/26th--All times E.S.T.:

 

12:00 a.m. "Scaramouche" (1923)--Ramon Novarro in Pre-Revolutionary France is out to avenge a friends' murder.  Haven't seen this on TCM before--hope the print is good.

 

Here are a couple of screen snapshots taken from a copy of the DVD I made from a past print TCM has shown. These images, by the way, are taken off a Canadian satellite. It's my experience that the American satellite image is a bit sharper and brighter than this (or, at least, it was when I saw it a few years ago).

There is a fair amount shown of the French Revolution in the 1923 silent, an aspect ignored by the '52 Stewart Granger version.

7:45 a.m. "I Could Go On Singing" (1963)--Mix of soap opera and "sort of" biopic has Garland portraying a temperamental singing star.  Film is only intermittently effective, but Garland does sing and act well, and costar Dirk Bogarde is very good.

 

as much as I love Patricia Neal and as much as I love Patricia Neal in HUD, I still don't know why or how strings weren't pulled to win Judy a Best Actress "consolation" Oscar for this.

 

every bit as much of a missed opportunity to reward the talent as 1954.

Saturday, June 24

 

7 a.m.  Man of Aran (1934).  I saw this many times as a kid in school and thought it was boring.  Might be worth another look after 50 years.

 

8:30 a.m.  Storm Over Jamaica (1958).  With Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna.  It doesn’t have very good imdb reviews but as someone pointed out it has a great cast and interesting locale.

 

11:45 p.m.  Witness to Murder (1954).  With Barbara Stanwyck and George Sanders.

 

4:15 a.m.  Weekend (1967).  By Jean-Luc Godard.  You gotta love TCM for providing something for everyone.

Friday, June 23

 

5 a.m.  Gidget Goes to Rome (1963).  

 

GIDGET GOES TO ROME is the final movie in the Gidget series, with Cindy Carol in the title role that was originated  by Sandra Dee. James Darren is back as Moondoggie (he played the role in all three movies opposite three different Gidgets) and Danielle de Metz plays the beautiful Italian guide who turns Moondoggie's head.

I like this movie a lot, almost as much as the first GIDGET.

Thursday, June 22nd/23rd--all times E.S.T.:

 

10:45 p.m. "Billy Liar" (1963)--The only one from the nights' lineup I haven't seen.

 

 

(this surprises me.)

Overall, I do not care for the entire year's output of films in 1963, but BILLY LIAR is really good and a legit contender for the best picture of that (awful) year.
