    Julie Adams (1926-2019)

    It's true, Adams did so much, made tons of westerns, worked constantly, yet Black Lagoon is the film that everyone wrote about when she departed. She was the only actress to fire Lucas McCain's rifle and even played a baddie in that episode of The Rifleman. Re: Capitol. She and Ed Nelson played wife and husband on Perry Mason (The Case of the Missing Button).

    blood and black lace

    Blood and Black Lace started the giallo movie craze in Italy that lasted into the late-70s and was a major influence on Dario Argento. Argento made nothing but super violent gialli after his first success, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage with Tony Musante.

    MGM HD Channel

    Comcast in South Florida dumped MGM HD last week (and sadly Decades a few months ago). I liked MGM but I hated their practice of chopping a film in half with commercials.

    David Janssen, I still wonder...

    No one played suspicious and shady better than Janssen in his series. He looked guilty in every episode. He once guested on Naked City (as a businessman) offering Paul Burke a job and he was terrific.

    Bill Maher on superhero movie craze

    Jack's followers used to hang out by my high school and give out the tracts. I may have saved a few. Meant to terrify impressionable minds, there's a kind of warped appeal about them.

    Blast of Silence

    Blast would be a great choice for Sunday Noir. (Strangers in the City, a grim film about a Puerto Rican family disintegrating in NYC, is close to being a companion piece.) Two more worthy neo-noir movies that TCM should program: Murder By Contract-Vince Edwards Helllbound-John Russell (from the Lawman TV series)

    Bill Maher on superhero movie craze

    Bill should stick to his two favorite subjects: Donald Trump and Ann Coulter. And he would have enjoyed talking to Stan Lee on his show had he been invited even once instead of the many political consultants you never heard of.
  8. No one at TCM reads message boards posts. I agree, Ricardo is way overdue.

    TCM Underground - 2019

    I thought it was repulsive. Not a good Underground programming choice. Florida exploitation regulars Thomas Kerwin and Brad Grinter have small roles as cops and Kerwin's brother Harry was the production manager. What was a Sunshine State trash flick without them? Wayne Crawford went on to bigger things in the 1980s.
  10. Not Hollywood but in The Revenge of Frankenstein, the Baron (Peter Cushing) wins.

    Burt Reynolds (1936-2018)

    If you like the angry 1960s/1970 Burt, before the porn mustache, Get TV is running Hawk and Dan August on weekends.

    star trek the mess

    This story error has been written about endlessly since 1982. Also how does Khan recognize Chekov? I've read that Meyer knew it was a continuity error before shooting but pressed on anyway and Walter knew but didn't want to lose the scene.

    Burt Reynolds (1936-2018)

    Burt blew mega-cash living the movie star life plus huge settlements to Loni and Pamela, his girlfriend after Loni. Even with Charles Bronson style action films like Malone [1987], he was getting a nice 3 million dollars. It's unreal what movie people spend.

    Burt Reynolds (1936-2018)

    I was disappointed they didn't make a western. City Heat was tough to sit through.
