  1. THE GREAT ZIEGFELD (1936)

    A crying shame they ruined "My Man" by Fanny Brice. It was one of the high points of the film. Her dressing room scene with Esther Muir (the big blonde) was great. William Powell wasn't even nominated for The Great Ziegfeld because he was nominated that year for My Man Godfrey and lost to Paul Muni. Luise Rainer won but the year's best actress was Carole Lombard for My Man Godfrey.
  2. THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962)

    Wrong theater in any case. And the Cadillac is a late 50s model.
  3. THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962)

    No. They were in an earlier stage version which was also filmed....

    I just watched Home Again, which I got free at Redbox. I hope I can wash the stench off me. Even for free, it was to costly.
  5. THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962)

    I sure don't see this as satire. I might have before the Kennedy murder/coup d'etat, but nothing since that black moment allows me to ever see this film as satire. The film is more relevant today than it ever was.
  6. THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962)

    Possibly, but 8 years is an awfully long time for for the brainwashing to percolate..... and all these errors in the film are still after 1960.
  7. THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962)

    Yes you are right, but the book was published in 1959. Since it's a presidential year that makes it 1956 at the latest. The film makes no "years later" comment and seems to pick up with Laurence Harvey coming home from the war. In any case, this is a GREAT film and still says a lot about our country nearly 60 years later. One of the funniest goofs I spotted was when Harvey is having lunch at the cabin with Jocelyn and her senator daddy, the film reverses for a second or two and we see Harvey REMOVE food from his mouth with his fork! One source says the film was shot in an amazing 39 days.... So it's no wonder it's full of small errors.
  8. THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962)

    The marquee in back announces the 1962 re-release of PINOCCHIO along with the 1961 film PIRATES OF TORTUGA. The marquee in from misspells the name of Debbie Reynolds. I have no idea what the .... FROM HELL movie is or how it's associated with Reynolds.
  9. THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962)

    The marquee on the right for NEW FACES, a show that played on Broadway in 1962. On the left is a marquee for A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, which ran on Broadway from 1961-1963.
  10. The films starts out in 1952 and involves a presidential election. That would make it 1952 of 1956, but no passage of years is implied in the film, so it's more likely 1952. The novel was published in 1959. The film is full of "time" errors. Here are a few I spotted. The finned Ford in the foreground is a 1957 (possibly 1958) model.

    They have a "channel" devoted to "super hero news." That says it all.
