    Imaginary Places You'd Like to Visit

    How about the Martian dancers in Just Imagine (1930)?

    I'd go to Manderlay, but you can never go back.

    Do You Watch TCM Underground Often?

    I like Night of the Lepus, in part because the scenes of the rampaging rabbits were so horrendously done.

    Subversion

    FitzPatrick visited Provincetown for the short he did on Massachusetts, although I don't know how big the gay population was then.

    I'm reminded of the scene in Marnie where Tippi Hedren goes nuts and screams for somebody to shoot the horse.

    How about Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison? I bet people would be hard-pressed to find it in most of the Fitzpatrick Traveltalks shorts, too.

    Be There or Be Square

    I like Benchley in Foreign Correspondent. He's also good in Rafter Romance.

    Be There or Be Square

    Laird Cregar was there in Hangover Square. And Lana Turner was in The Big Cube, which is just a square in three dimensions.

    I figured you all knew what I meant. I hope you also realize that it's just makeup that makes Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon look like women in Some Like It Hot.
  15. Speaking of announcing actors' deaths, earlier today on another (non-movie) blog, somebody posted a link to a BBC obituary of... Gene Wilder. Who, of course, has been dead over two years.

    He's in the beginning as well, but in the end scene he's bald.

    The Wild Bunch (1969). William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Warren Oates and friends escape from Texas to Mexico after a payroll heist gone wrong, with bounty hunter Robert Ryan on their trail. In Mexico, Holden's gang tries to recoup the money they didn't get in Texas by gunrunning for a general. The movie is famous for its supposedly gratuitous over-the-top violence. Instead, I found the violence tedious as director Sam Peckinpah thinks it's somehow neato to show it all in slow-motion with either people falling off buildings in slow motion or dying florid, gesticulating deaths like the stars stung by bees in The Swarm a decade later. Oh, and as with a lot of westerns from the late 60s and early 70s, there are a lot of pointless zooms. A good story hamstrung by terrible, pretentious direction. 6/10.

    That plot sounds thoroughly treacly. Please tell me Tex's love for his horse takes a turn into Equus territory.

    So what do you think of All About My Mother?

    And I think we can all agree it's a mystery why anybody likes Bruce Springsteen.

    My Reputation (1946). Barbara Stanwyck plays a widow who's just lost her husband to illness at the height of World War II. Her shrewish mother (Lucile Watson) and her conventional rich friends all expect her to mourn and suffer for the rest of her life, but she goes off to Tahoe with Eve Arden and her husband, where she meets Army major George Brent. The two begin a torrid love affair, to the point that you wouldn't realize there's a war on. But all of Stanwyck's old friends except for Eve gossip about her. 6/10. Stanwyck tries, but the material lets her and everybody down. There was one amusing scene of Stanwyck meeting a friend (I think Arden) across the aisles of a grocery store a la Double Indemnity, but without the can'd milk.
