    What Are You Watching Now?

    One "pop" movie musical that I like a lot is Baz Luhrmann's MOULIN ROUGE!, which uses "modern" pop/rock songs (such as "Like A Virgin," Smells Like Teen Spirit," and Your Song") for a movie set in 1900. I know opinion is divided about this anachronistic musical choice (and about "jukebox" musicals in general), but it works for me in the movie.

    Actor Tab Hunter (1931-2018)

    I wish they would play GREASE 2. Tab Hunter is great in the "Reproduction" number in that movie.
  3. With friends like that . . .

    Great Movie Performances By Child Actors

    I love this clip from an interview with Danny Lloyd which was included in Vivian Kubrick's documentary THE MAKING OF SHINING. Reportedly Stanley Kubrick directed Lloyd without letting the boy know they were making a horror movie. He appeared in only one other movie as a young G. Gordon Liddy in a TV movie about the convicted Watergate conspirator.
  5. Many (most?) of the performances mentioned in this thread are hardly neglected. In fact, they are quite acclaimed.

    I Just Watched...

    The character Martha in Edward Albee's play WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? famously tries to remember the name this Warner Brothers "epic." David Brian must be the "actor with the scar" who plays the character from Chicago that Bette Davis's character is in love with. But does he really have a scar? Or did Edward Albee misremember this detail or was he saying that Martha made this error?
  7. EYES OF LAURA MARS is still available on Demand.

    A STAR IS BORN (2018) trailer

    The trailer for the upcoming A STAR IS BORN remake directed by Bradley Cooper and starring Cooper and Lady Gaga is now available. This movie truly looks amazing! I'm very excited to see this one. As one of the YouTube posters commented, it's a remake of a remake of remake, but it still looks like it will be a really good movie.
  9. Thanks for this information! I found a clip of that scene from THE ABOMINABLE DR PHIBES online.

    the heavenly misery of MIDNIGHT LACE (1960)!

    "Mrs. Preston!"
  11. It wasn't until years after I first saw the "Edie Gets Married" episode of THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW on Nick At Nite that I learned what song Ted was referencing in the punchline of his Anna Maria Alberghetti knock-knock joke. I discovered the music of the great Alberta Hunter when I borrowed a CD from my local library featuring a concert performance of hers. One of the songs was "Darktown Strutters' Ball." When I heard it I said, "That's the song they were singing in the bar on that MTM SHOW episode!"

    Art of Disney Animation

    Yes, I like THE SWORD IN THE STONE too. I think my favorite 1970s Disney animated feature is THE RESCUERS, which features the voices of Eva Gabor, Bob Newhart, Bernard Fox (Dr. Bombay from BEWITCHED) and, of course, Geraldine Page as Madame Medusa. The RESCUERS DOWN UNDER (from 1990) is also good.

    It's been over 3 years, but TCM has finally aired BOMBA ON PANTHER ISLAND.

    BLONDE VENUS is my favorite Marlene Dietrich movie. I know some people have said the ending is unrealistic---Dietrich and Marshall's characters reconciling after all the animosity --- but I say the two people never fell out of love. Of course, I also she think genuinely loved Cary Grant's character. One of my favorite lines in the movie (and in movies in general) is when Dietrich asks Taxi Belle, "Do you charge for the first mile?"
