    *Classic Hollywood: Restoring Chaplin gems* October 20, 2010 By Susan King, Los Angeles Times Gone are the grainy, broken silents from the star's Keystone years. A new DVD set showcases the birth of the Tramp. For the first half of the 20th century, Charlie Chaplin was the most famous movie comedian in the world thanks to his endearing Tramp character and the masterpieces he wrote and directed, including "The Gold Rush," "City Lights," "Modern Times" and "The Great Dictator." But every genius has to start somewhere, and for Chaplin that was with the Keystone Film Co., where he honed his craft and created his iconic character ? the baggy-pants, bowler-hatted Tramp. http://articles.latimes.com/2010/oct/20/entertainment/la-et-classic-hollywood-20101020

    did anyone watch "Homicidal (1961)" yesterday

    Not make the purest mad... but I always found _Homicidal_ (1961) better than _Psycho_ (1960)!
  10. *Fox Announces 400 MGM Titles for 'Manufacturing on Demand' Program* By Daniel Frankel TheWrap Published: November 02, 2010 *Want to see the 1982 Roy Scheider/Meryl Streep thriller "Still of the Night" on DVD? How about '77's action-drama "Rolling Thunder" starring William Devane and that young go-getter Tommy Lee Jones?* Up until now, these titles -- like many in the voluminous MGM film library -- have not been available on DVD in Region 1-encoded versions for the U.S. market. But Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment thinks it's finally found a cost-effective way to release some of the more fringe titles in the MGM vault: manufacturing DVD versions on demand. Partnering with fulfillment provider Allied Vaughn, Fox announced Tuesday that it will make 50 "MGM Limited Edition" titles immediately, with a full flurry of 400 titles available via the scheme over the next 18 months. Discs will cost $19.98 and be available for order through various retailers' sites. Fox began experimenting with DVD cook-to-order about six months ago, authoring a limited collection of 27 MGM titles -- including early-'60s TV series "Flipper" -- for on-demand DVD replication. "MGM is deeply committed to making its library of films and TV shows available to as wide an audience as possible," said Eric Doctorow, G.M., MGM Worldwide. "MOD provides an ideal solution to retailers who wish to expand the MGM DVD titles they offer to their customers without having to make an inventory investment." http://www.thewrap.com/movies/article/fox-use-dvd-manufacturing-demand-mine-mgm-catalog-22229 *_Here are the first 50 titles available under the latest announcement_:* Bad Jim (1990), 92 min. A cowpoke buys Billy the Kid's horse and, upon riding it, becomes an incorrigible outlaw himself. By Love Possessed (1961), 116 min. Lana Turner and Jason Robards star in a drama of passion and propriety as blue-blooded pillars of a small New England town who must face their defiant son's (George Hamilton) increasingly rebellious behavior. Diary Of A Madman (1963), 96 min. Vincent Price turns in a classic performance as a sculptor, possessed by an evil spirit, who hires a model (Nancy Kovack) to pose for him -- then learns thereafter that she has been brutally murdered. Futureworld (1976), 104 min. An amusement park of the future caters to any adult fantasy. Lifelike androids carry out your every whim. A fun place, right? Not so, as a reporter and his Girl Friday find out while on a press junket to the newly opened Futureworld... The Hawaiians (1970), 132 min. A sea captain's discovery of water on a plantation leads to planting of pineapples on the island. Rolling Thunder (1977), 99 min. A gang of sadistic thugs murder the wife and child of a Vietnam vet, who, along with his war buddy and a woman, track down and kill the murderers. The Satan Bug (1965), 114 min. John Sturges directed this sizzling suspenser about a nerve-racking chase to recover flasks of a lethal virus which were stolen from a government lab by a deranged and dangerous scientist, who has decided that now it is his turn "to play God"...

    Joan Crawford

    *JOAN CRAWFORD - TCM NOVEMBER 2010 - All Times Eastern - Check Local Schedule!* *November 5* *_Reunion in France_ (1942) 8:45am* *November 9* *_No More Ladies_ (1935) 6:15pm* *November 29* *_Hollywood Canteen_ (1944) 4:30am.* *Reunion in France* _Plot Summary_: Better known as Reunion in France, this women's-magazine-style romantic melodrama was the first major production for director Jules Dassin -- who was promptly demoted back to the MGM "B" department when the picture tanked at the box office. Joan Crawford stars as Frenchwoman Michele de la Becque, who comes to believe that her fianc?, wealthy munitions manufacturer Robert Cortot (Philip Dorn) is a Nazi collaborator. When her suspicions are apparently corroborated, Michelle falls in love with Pat Talbot (John Wayne), a downed American aviator stranded in occupied Paris. Only then does Michelle discover that she's been all wrong about Cortot -- but what to do about Talbot, who has been marked for death by the Gestapo? Ava Gardner has a tiny role as a Parisian shopgirl. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide *No More Ladies - 1935* _Plot Summary_: MGM regularly churned out films in the 1930s that were all "star power" and very little plot. No More Ladies is a good example of this. Joan Crawford marries bon vivant Robert Montgomery, hoping to mend his wastrel ways. Montgomery refuses to assumes the proper responsibilities of a husband, so Crawford tries to make him jealous by taking up with Franchot Tone. Everyone involved has limitless money, beautiful clothes and all the time in the world to spend on the trivialities of the plotline. Depression era audiences loved to see good-looking people in sumptuous sets, so No More Ladies was a success. The fact that, when asked, these audiences couldn't remember a single thing about the story was beside the point. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide. *_Notes_:* The A.E. Thomas play upon which the film was based opened in New York City on 1/23/34 and ran for 176 performances. The film was in production from 3/12/35 to 4/35. Rachel Crothers had her screenplay credit removed upon request after complaining that her work was butchered. http://imagecache6.allposters.com/LRG/38/3846/3XLYF00Z.jpg>
  12. I just bought: _Possessed: The Life of Joan Crawford_ ...... So far I'm very impressed!!! *Possessed: The Life of Joan Crawford* Donald Spoto (Author) *_Product Description_* Joan Crawford was one of the most incandescent film stars of all time, yet she was also one of the most misunderstood. In this brilliantly researched, thoughtful, and intimate biography, bestselling author Donald Spoto goes beyond the popular caricature?the abusive, unstable mother portrayed in her adopted daughter Christina Crawford?s memoir, Mommie Dearest?to give us a three-dimensional portrait of a very human woman, her dazzling career, and her extraordinarily dramatic life and times. Based on new archival information and exclusive interviews, and written with Spoto?s keen eye for detail, Possessed offers a fascinating portrait of a courageous, highly ****, and ambitious woman whose strength and drive made her a forerunner in the fledgling film business. From her hardscrabble childhood in Texas to her early days as a dancer in post?World War I New York to her rise to stardom, Spoto traces Crawford?s fifty years of memorable performances in classics like Rain, The Women, Mildred Pierce, and Sudden Fear, which are as startling and vivid today as when they were filmed. In Possessed, Spoto goes behind the myths to examine the rise and fall of the studio system; Crawford?s four marriages; her passionate thirty year, on-and-off-again affair with Clark Gable; her friendships and rivalries with other stars; her powerful desire to become a mother; the truth behind the scathing stories in her daughter Christina?s memoir; and her final years as a widow battling cancer. Spoto explores Crawford?s achievements as an actress, her work with Hollywood?s great directors (Frank Borzage, George Cukor, Otto Preminger) and actors (Henry Fonda, James Stewart, Spencer Tracy, John Barrymore), and later, her role as a highly effective executive on the board of directors of Pepsi-Cola. Illuminating and entertaining, Possessed is the definitive biography of this remarkable woman and true legend of film.
