  1. Monday, September 14 7:45 a.m. My Love Come Back (1940). I haven’t seen this Olivia de Havilland film. 2:45 p.m. The Strawberry Blonde (1941). A favourite of a lot of people. An evening of Sidney Lumet. At some point I hope TCM can dig up a print of A View From the Bridge (1962) with Maureen Stapleton and Raf Vallone. 12:30 a.m. The Verdict (1982). One of my very favourite Paul Newman films. And James Mason and Milo O’Shea are great in it too! The scene where Newman retreats to the bathroom because he cannot breath due to a panic attack is brilliant. and two lesser seen Lumet’s that I have not seen … 2:45 a.m. Just Tell Me What You Want (1980) 4:45 Bye Bye Braverman (1968)

    I Just Watched...

    ... The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) and Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972) for the fourth time each. Both films are great fun and Vincent Price camps it up perfectly. The director, Robert Fuest disappeared into Brit television shortly thereafter which is a real shame. He passed away in 2012. Seeing the Phibes films have me eager to see two of Fuest's other films: The Final Programme (1973) or The Last Days of Man on Earth as it is known in the States. It stars Jon Finch and Sterling Hayden. And, The Devil's Rain (1975) with Ernest Borgnine, Ida Lupino, Eddie Albert and William Shatner. Has anyone seen these two films?

Maybe one person out there might vote for me? : ) Bright Leaf (1950) with Gary Cooper is followed by the TCM Premiere of Bright Leaves (2003). The latter is a comedic documentary by Ross McElwee of Sherman’s March fame about his great-grandfather, a North Carolina tobacco farmer who was played by Coop in Bright Leaf. In the Heat of the Night (1967) is the Academy Award winning best picture by Canadian director, Norman Jewison. Driving Miss f-ing Daisy as Spike Lee has referred to it, won the Academy Award in 1989 for Best Picture and Best Actress. Do the Right Thing was not even nominated for Best Picture that year hence Lee’s bitter comment. I thought it only fair to select the brilliant and tragic Spike Lee film, 4 Little Girls as another of my TCM premieres. Silent Sunday Erich von Stroheim’s The Wedding March (1928) with Canadian, Fay Wray is very hard to catch these days so this is my choice. TCM Imports A pair of Peter Lorre German films starting with Fritz Lang’s M (1931) and finishing with the rarely seen The Trunks of Mr. O.F. (1931) which also features Hedy Lamarr. Monday, June 26, 2017 filmmaking films I’m following Nanook of the North (1922) with a TCM Premiere of Kabloonak (1994) a Canadian-French co-production by Claude Massot. Kabloonak tells the tale of the behind-the-scenes making of Nanook with Charles Dance playing director, Robert Flaherty and Adamie Inukpuk as his own real-life grandfather, Nanook. It has a terrific sequence where a very smart polar bear stalks the film crew. Think Jaws of the North. The Picture Show Man (1977) is another TCM Premiere and a rare chance to see Rod Taylor perform in his native Australia. Singin’ In the Rain (1952) is followed by a recent film that owes a lot to it, The Artist (2011). As The Artist closes in French it is followed by two French films starting with my favourite film about filmmaking, Francois Truffaut’s Day For Night (1973) featuring Jacqueline Bissett and Valentina Cortese. Then it’s time for a TCM Premiere with the comedy, I Hate Actors (1986). Michel Galibru stars as a silent film star in I Hate Actors who is trying to make a comeback in a sound version of an earlier success. Optional Challenge #4. 30th Challenge - 1930’s Character Guest Programmer is Bela Lugosi’s Ygor from Son of Frankenstein and his subject is “The Hangman’s Noose” For those of you who have seen Son of Frankenstein (1939) you will recall that Lugosi’s Ygor had suffered a broken neck from hanging, but had somehow managed to survive. As guest programmer, Ygor has obsessively selected films that all have something to do with hanging: his own in Son of Frankenstein (1939); The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966); Hang em High (1968); and two (exempt) premieres, Pierrepoint: The Last Hangman (2005) and Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. (1999) Tuesday, June 27, 2017 Challenge #1 Risky Business: Political Assassinations: Gunmen, Plotters and Investigators Political Assassination is a risky business for all involved. This theme kicks off with a TCM premiere of Executive Action (1973) featuring Burt Lancaster and Robert Ryan. This film is loosely based on work by JFK assassination researcher, Mark Lane. Report (1967) is a famous, but little seen short subject documentary by Bruce Connor. Oliver Stone’s JFK (1991) features two Canadians, Donald Sutherland and John Candy. Candy plays New Orleans lawyer, Dean ‘Daddy-O’ Andrews. If you look up the real Andrews on youtube you will see how on-the-money Candy’s portrayal is. Bobby (2006) is another TCM (exempt) Premiere, this time about the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as the Ambassador Hotel. “an undigested bit of beef” This features two films about the power of the imagination. The TCM Premiere of Alain Resnais’ Providence (1977) has novelist, John Gielgud employing members of his own family in his story lines whilst struggling with constipation. What is real, and what is not? Providence is one of my all time favourite films with a career best film performance by John Gielgud. It is followed by another film with John Warner, Morgan: A Suitable Case For Treatment (1966) which garnered Vanessa Redgrave an Academy Award nomination. Max Ophuls Three films by the master of the swirling camera, Max Ophuls: The Earrings of Madame de… (1953); La Ronde (1950) and Lola Montes (1955). Madame de… features terrific performances by Danielle Darrieux who hopefully will have just celebrated her 100th birthday at this time and Vittorio De Sica. And a chance to see the Jules Dassin short subject A Tell-Tale Heart (1941). Wednesday, June 28, 2017 Department Stores Hollywood loved this locale in the 1930’s. TCM Canada always bumps Hal Roach films so I have swapped Safety Last (1923) with the thematically mis-matched Mountie film, Pierre of the Plains (1942). An inside joke for Canadian viewers who often see sloppy substitutions in their schedule. The Marx Bros.’ The Big Store (1941) is the film that segues into Challenge #2 Funny Business. Shyster Lawyers. I have chosen a joke from Monkey Business (1930): Lucille: You’re awfully shy for a lawyer. Groucho: You bet I’m shy. I’m a shyster lawyer. We begin with the TCM (exempt) Premiere of Brain Donors (1992) starring that amazing thespian, John Turturro. I feel compelled to mention that the film opens with Turturro in character as Groucho Marx playing the ultimate ambulance chasing shyster, Roland T. Flakfizer as he … well, chases an ambulance. Followed by the TCM (exempt) Premiere of From the Hip (1987) with brat-packer, Judd Nelson. Then its Disorder in the Court with the 3 Stooges. Followed by the TCM Premiere of Carlito’s Way (1993) with slimy, Sean Penn looking like of ringer for Stooge, Larry Fine. We round off the wee hours with my favourite legal eagle shyster film, The Verdict (1982) with Paul Newman and James Mason then finishing with Warren Williams in The Mouthpiece (1932) Thursday, June 29, 2017 the Mexican border A hot tamale of a topic these days. The daytime schedule concludes with the TCM premiere of Gregory Nava’s acclaimed El Norte (1983). Star of the Month - Max von Sydow This evening we include include 4 of the over 100 features that dear old, Max has made. Several have a religious theme: Hawaii (1966) where Max plays a minister; The Greatest Story Ever Told (1969) where Max plays Christ; Through a Glass Darkly (1961) where God is denounced as a spider; and The Exorcist (1973) where Max takes on the Devil. Friday, June 30, 2017 rags to riches to rags The characters in these films either go from rags to riches, or riches to rags, or both. One highlight is the little seen, Tovarich (1937) with Claudette Colbert, Charles Boyer, Basil Rathbone and the delightful Melville Cooper. the Month’s theme for June - Road Pictures And what better way to kick of this week’s Road Pictures than with (“it’s not a western”) Stagecoach (1939). We upgrade the coach with The Trip to Bountiful (1985) featuring Geraldine Page’s Oscar winning performance. It is followed by the TCM premiere of Wim Wenders’ King of the Road (1976), then Easy Rider (1967) and Sullivan’s Travels (1941). Saturday, July, 2017 It’s Canada Day! - Canadians at the Movies Rise and shine with Michael Powell’s 49th Parallel (1941) which features Canuck, Raymond Massey and everyone’s favourite French-Canadian, Laurence Olivier. This is followed by the TCM Premiere of Walt Disney’s Big Red (1962) starring Canucks, Walter Pidgeon and Emile Genest. The Quebec scenery is a standout in this. Included also is one of our favourite singing Mountie movies, Rose Marie (1954). Then it’s off to the far frozen north with W.S. Van Dyke’s little seen, Eskimo (1933) My Best Girl (1927) and One Hundred Men and a Girl (1937) feature two of Canada’s most famous actresses, Mary Pickford and Deanna Durbin respectively. The (Canadian) Essentials Dinner at Eight (1933) with Marie Dressler from Coburg, Ontario. One of the very best Canadian feature films has its TCM Premiere at 10 p.m.: Ted Kotcheff’s, Montreal based The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravtiz (1974) with a young Richard Dreyfuss. Jack Warden, Joe Silver and Denholm Elliott are stand outs in the cast. This is followed by Norman Jewison’s Agnes of God which also takes place in Quebec. Nieghbours (1952) is a very famous stop motion short subject by Norman McLaren. Tonight’s underground selection features the TCM Premiere (exempt) Amanita Pestilens (1963) with Genevieve Bujold in her film debut. The Oscar nominated short subject Universe (1960) was apparently closely scrutinized by Stanley Kubrick when prepping 2001: A Space Odyssey. You can see the influence its matte drawings had on 2001 and Canada’s, Douglas Rain, the voice of HAL 9000 is the narrator. It is followed by Donald Shebib’s iconic Goin’ Down the Road (1970). Fans of SCTV will recognize this as a subject of a Joe Flaherty, John Candy parody. The week concludes with the award winning National Film Board animated short subject, The Cat Came Back (1988).

    I Just Watched...

    The French original, La Bete Humaine (1938) by Jean Renoir starring Jean Gabin and Simone Simon is even better.
  6. Sunday, September 13 6 a.m. A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1935) James Cagney is a treat in this. With this light comedy, the dancing and the dramatic roles, Cagney gets my vote as the best actor between he, Bogart and Robinson. A repeat but an inspired double bill … 2 a.m. The Face of Another (1966) 4:15 a.m. Eyes Without a Face (1959)
  7. Saturday, September 12 10 a.m. Batman and Robin: Target - Robin! Boy, how many more of these are there? It’s time for some Mexican Santo movies after these. 1 a.m. Dark of the Sun (1968). I quite liked this rather brutal film when it came out. The chain saw fight was a highlight. Kenneth More is very good in what is usually a stereotypical part of a drunken doctor’s last hurrah. 2:45 a.m. It’s Alive (1974) I don’t know if this is a case of a cheesy premise sounding much better than the actual film but I’m willing to give this one a shot.

    At first glance the worst month I think I've ever seen on TCM.
  9. doh, not the Scarecrow! First Buddy Ebsen .. then ...
  10. Friday, September 11 6 a.m. Central Park (1932) Another Joan Blondell film that I’ve never seen before. And With Wallace Ford who is usually good in anything he does.
  11. You couldn't drag him to see Towering Inferno
  12. I've taped a few of them to watch later. Is it two separate serials?
  13. Thursday, September 10 8 p.m. I Can Get It For You Wholesale (1951). I haven’t seen this Susan Hayward film before. That's my choice of the day.

    Arcane phrases from the classic era

    Only the Posh Brits say "Snauzzy." Kenneth Williams would approve.
  15. I think Russell Crowe has got about a half a dozen films that he is really good in. L.A. Confidential (1997) i one; Master and Commander (2003) another.

    Arcane phrases from the classic era

    I doubt its from the 'classic' age but it is out of use ... "Snazzy" - is Dargo going to tell me it is 'snazzie'?
  17. Wednesday, September 9 6:30 a.m. Back to school kicks off with So This Is College (1929) an early Robert Montgomery film. This is the one that interests me today. Hope it is amusing. Will they be wearing those huge fur coats and straw hats I wonder?

    George C Scott Day !!!

    Have you ever seen his first wife, Colleen Dewhurst? She probably wiped the floor with poor George.

    Great One-Liners

    "The Vice Squad is having a bit of a do tonight. Would you like to come along?" - Police Inspector Clarke played by Michel Bates in Bedazzled (1967) as he tries to date potential suicide witness, Margaret Spencer played by Eleanor Bron.
  20. Tuesday, September 8 8:15 a.m. Your Past Is Showing (1957) aka The Naked Truth is a pretty good Peter Sellers film from the UK. Peggy Mount and Joan Sims are particularly good in this. 11:45 a.m. A Carol For Another Christmas (1964) by Joseph Mankiewicz. With Sterling Hayden and Eva Marie Saint. Was this on when Hayden was SOTM? 9:45 p.m. and onward. John Huston WWII documentaries which include (The Battle of) San Pietro (1945) and Let There Be Light (1946). Both are very good.
