    I love your write up and i thank you for it... This was a movie I would not have appreciated had I not known the backstory (which I think I learned from Osborne, who introduced the movie when it aired in prime time 5-6(?) years ago.) it was part of a deal Bogdonavich worked out with Roger Corman where he was required to use footage of Boris Karloff and get Boris to appear in the film himself, he and Polly Platt (and maybe a few others i don't know about) lumped it into their project which was about a young man who will go on a mass murder spree by the end of the film. Karloff is amazing, the film is amazing, and I wish TCM'd show it again because it is PRESCIENT AS HELL. Make Believe horrors of creaky castle sets and sugar-spun cobwebs are overshadowed by the real horrors that have come with modern life.

    Lawrence, help me out here... I SWEAR I read about a Charlie Chan film (set in Hawaii?) that featured BELA LUGOSI in a role, not as Chan but as the villain. I seem to foggily recall seeing it on youtube and it not being good... i went to Lugosi's imdb page and it was not among his credits. (neither is PLAN 9!) Am I hallucinating this film? edit: nevermind it was THE BLACK CAMEL.

    Better than TARGETS (1968)? ive never seen LAST PICTURE SHOW, but TARGETS is an AMAAAAAAAAAZING piece of filmmaking. Like seriously, one of the finest movies I’ve seen.

    I'm not sure it was a done deal either way. His playing Tommy Wiseau and mining a broad, bad performance for laughs was such obvious low hanging fruit, even Academy Voters were turned off.

    In re INDISCREET (1958) i get mad at those play adaptations of the 1950s that felt like it was okay to stay on the same set for 90% or more of the movie. Film does not need to be theater.

    Literally the only thing I gave a **** about in re: OSCARS 2018 was for Franco to not get nommed, Denzel was there and I ain’t hatin or asking questions

    A FAREWELL TO ARMS (the book) is good (or I thought it was when I read it 21 years ago) outside of that...eh

    Love Bergman. Love Cary. Have come to love NOTORIOUS over time. INDISCREET tho? Notsomuch. (It's a filmed stage play that has not aged well.)

    I've mentioned elsewhere that i really enjoy 1943 in film a lot, and one interesting thing about it is the slight "yin and yang" quality to the year's overall output- ie many of the films made that year have a companion film from the same year that seems like a mirror image to its story or tone- for THE HUMAN COMEDY there is SHADOW OF A DOUBT, for CASABLANCA there is SAHARA, and for FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS there is FIVE GRAVES TO CAIRO, the last example tho is a case where one is superior to the other. if you're looking for the FUN, WATCHABLE la Resistance! film of 1943 that also features AKIM TAMIROFF, FIVE GRAVES is the one to go with all the way!
