    TCM and Other Sources for Classic Film

    West Side Story is scheduled right after Bean. Coincidence? Intentional? Tab Hunter auditioned for the role of Tony but he and other actors lost out to Richard Beymer.

    Eddie Muller's Humor

    I know Eddie a long time (when he was writing Grindhouse with Daniel Faris) and I'm happy for his success.

    on svengoolie tonite

    Terrible movie and a lousy closing showcase for greats Stanwyck and Taylor but excellent music by Vic Mizzy (The Addams Family).

    May 2018 TCM Spotlight: Movie Series

    Interview with Johnny Sheffield. He and Weissmuller were like father and son off-the-set. http://www.tarzanmovieguide.com/sheffint.htm

    TCM schedules

    Barker didn't seem to get much screen time in the Tarzans I've seen. There are long stretches when he's off-screen.

    What Are You Watching Now?

    The Intruder, by Roger Corman, starring William Shatner. TCM should program this movie and interview the two of them.

    TCM Premieres

    Ben is right when he said that Dors was underappreciated. Her most interesting work was in the 1950's, all those noirs she starred in. By the mid-70s, she was trapped in crap like Adventures of a Taxi Driver.
  8. The Great Flamarion is a compelling little film, underrated. Mary Beth Hughes played one of the most coldblooded and best looking femme fatales. It's not easy to feel sympathy for Eric Von Stroheim in general but in this picture she really does a number on him.

    notes on eurospy

    Deadlier Than The Male & Some Girls Do is a TCM double feature I'd like to see, in honor of Richard Johnson. The New Beverly Theater in Los Angeles did this in 2015.

    Dirty Harry vs. Bullitt

    There is nothing in my post that states that being a vigilante is good. It was about a cinema trend in police thrillers. Discussion over.

    Dirty Harry vs. Bullitt

    Where do you read that?
  13. Dennis Leary, Jon Cryer. I'm sure they're decent men who are good to their families and pay their taxes.

    Dirty Harry vs. Bullitt

    The cop with a Magnum (or otherwise giant revolver) who operates by his own rules, kicked off by Dirty Harry, became a huge '70s movie trend in the States and in the Italian Poliziotteschi (Maurizio Merli was like an Italian Harry) plus on TV (Hunter, Starsky & Hutch). Bullitt, while a great film, didn't have that kind of influence in cinema and TV.
