Comcast East Tennessee is showing the "Condemned" version of "Baby Face"!!  There was no nonsense about Lily using her power "the right way", and the railroad car scene that was supposed to be cut was in the film, complete with Lily's friend Chico singing a spiritual while Lily and the railway guard get ready to have sex.
 

 

Thanks TCM and Comcast!

When I checked my DVR programming tonight, I noticed that it now has Orpheus Descending in place of the one I was going to record, 1958's Behind the Mask, at 12:00PM EST. I was hoping it was a glitch but maybe it's not.

 

I love Vanessa Redgrave, but I was hoping to not have any duplications on her day.

BEHIND THE MASK features a very young Vanessa appearing with her father Michael Redgrave, which would have been interesting.

On Vanessa Redgrave's day it looks like the US schedule has ORPHEUS DESCENDING at both 12 PM and 10:15 PM Eastern.

I'm pretty sure that when the August schedule was first available there was another movie scheduled at 12 PM.

 

In Canada, it appears ORPHEUS DESCENDING is not airing at all.  

There's HOT MILLIONS at 12 PM and CLASH OF THE TITANS at  10:15 PM. 

Vanessa Redgrave isn't in either movie, but both feature Maggie Smith.

THE MIRACLE WOMAN was screened last year by my film group. I was the only person in the audience who had seen it before. The crowd LOVED it.

 

JEOPARDY is MrTiki's & my favorite film, we refer to it often*. It was my first introduction to Ralph Meeker, and I just adore him now. This movie is so full of implausible crazy situations, it is much funnier than scary.

 

I made a refrigerator magnet of this photo, I think both their expressions are hilarious:

*whenever MrTiki has to disarm to enter a municipal building, I always say "want to hide it in the glove box?"

I recommend All I Desire, one of my favorite Douglas Sirk films. Beautifully directed, with one of Stanwyck's best performances. By this time in her career Stanwyck often played women who were hard-boiled (see Crime of Passion, for instance), but she brings all the needed tenderness to the role of the woman who returns to the family she abandoned to go on the stage. Such a charming performance by Richard Long, too, as the daughter's boyfriend. Maureen O'Sullivan also makes the most of her role as the high school drama teacher in love with Stanwyck's ex-husband.

Sunday, August 13th/14th; all times E.S.T.:

 

1:30 a.m. "Baby Face" (1933)--Absurd, tacked-on ending doesn't spoil what happened  in the previous 73 minutes.  And there's always the chance TCM will show the "Condemned" version they did in March 2016--I'd be delighted to see that again.

 

4:45 a.m. "Jeopardy" (1953)--Stanwyck thriller I haven't seen.

Barbara Stanwyck day

 

3 a.m.  The Miracle Woman (1931).  This Frank Capra picture is my pick of the day.

The tabernacle built for this film actually had  a seating capacity of about 25,000. Inside the building, Frank Capra had to use a public address system so that the 2000 extras could hear him. Because the tabernacle was to be burned down in the climactic scene, the Hollywood Fire Department ordered that it be built outside the city limits.

Sunday's Barbara Stanwyck day will be my busiest recording day of the month. I'll be recording:
 
So Big (1932)
The Purchase Price (1932)
Ladies They Talk About (1933)
My Reputation (1946)
All I Desire (1953)
Crime of Passion (1957)
The Miracle Woman (1931)
Jeopardy (1953)


I love Ladies They Talk About! It's my second favorite "Ladies in prison" movie. It cracks me up for how pleasant they make prison life seem to be. Even Stanwyck's prison garb is tailored and looks cute on her!

My Reputation is fun too. It's a "weepie" as they're known; but it's a good look at how widows and women in general were expected to act. The only part of this film I don't like are Barbara's two boys--they're annoying.

My Reputation (1946)

Crime of Passion (1957)

The Miracle Woman (1931)

Jeopardy (1953)

 

I single out this one for note; and recommend it.

 

 

....although it's been awhile since i saw it, and i seem to recall it was an online viewing, but i was surprised at how ROUGH this film is, at times really pushing back against the code. it has scenes that are on a par with CAPE FEAR ten years later and THE RIVER WILD (1994) is actually a less sexualized semi-remake.

John Wayne day, pilgrim!

 

8 p.m.  The Quiet Man (1952).  This is my favourite John Wayne performance.  With Maureen O’Hara.

I saw All I Desire many years on TV. The one thing I remember is a scene where Stanwyck, lifting her skirts, high kicks a kitchen matchbox, just to prove she could still do it. . Good stuff.

Sunday night, i think this is a premiere, the other Stanwyck/Sirk collaboration (not the one she did with MacMurray), sounds interesting:
