    Art in Movies

    I think the opening credit sequence to the 1975 movie 'THE DEVIL'S RAIN' features paintings from Hieronymous Bosch in the background along with foreboding music and the screech of "LET ME OUT OF HERE!!"
  2. Laurence Bolivier (!) (LAURIE BARTRAM [1958-2007] from FRIDAY THE 13th (1980)). Next: C.K.

    The First Film That Comes to Mind...

    ANNIE (1982) next: A movie you saw and thought "This could be so much better with better acting!"

    RIP Joseph Bologna (1934-2017)

    I have a VHS tape of COPS AND ROBBERS (1973) that Mr. Bologna starred in, but I've not got 'round to watching it yet. His 1974 movie MIXED COMPANY with Barbara Harris has never been released to any homevideo medium. I've never seen it, but I'd like to catch it once.

    RIP Joseph Bologna (1934-2017)

    I was sad to see he died a few days ago. I remember THE BIG BUS (1976) very well. He starred with Stockard Channing and John Beck. Also saw his 1971 movie MADE FOR EACH OTHER (1971) several times; he hadn't had his teeth fixed yet. He starred with his wife Renee Taylor in this comedy-drama. TORN BETWEEN TWO LOVERS (1979-Tvm) was another starring role for him. With Lee Remick and George Peppard. (It was based on the Mary MacGregor song, btw). It would be nice if Paramount would lease out THE BIG BUS to TCM for a reasonable sum so Turner Classic could air it.

    Summer Under the Stars--one hit wonders?

    Ye Gods! Those movies look . . . interesting. Yeah. That's it. Interesting.

    Summer Under the Stars--one hit wonders?

    Back to the original post mentioning Robert Williams. He didn't even make it to 1932; died Nov. 3, 1931 just after PLATINUM BLONDE was released. TCM could do an ALICIA SILVERSTONE DAY! Clueless (1995) is her only movie hit I can think of. I know she was in some other theatrical films, but I don't remember the name of any of the others. (I am kidding about this just in case I came across as being serious!)
  8. Jeepers! My mental walnuts got excited when I heard Ben mention the late Mr. Osborne's *intro's* -and- *outro's* were available if one joined the TCM PoxLot. Such a deal to go with the $89 bucks a year! Since the Backlot is 'celebrating' it's 1-Year Anniversary I've noted TCM is pushing hard for viewers to acquire a membership. I'd rather spend $89 over the course of a year buying up Miles Davis albums. On cassette.

    Disappointments?

    2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY would be a good movie to watch for insomniacs. I've no doubt it would put them to sleep. Overpraised to the 'nth' degree.
  10. Asian spam? Oh, yeah?!?! Well I'm gonna BUMP this thread to keep it on par with Underwood Deviled Ham! Whaddya think of them apples, jack?
  11. I really don't like the ending of SCARLET STREET (1945) at all. Eddie should never be feeling that much guilt after what Bennett and Duryea were up to. Asinine. I watched this movie twice in its entirety. No more. The 1983 movie HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW. I'd like this movie so much more if the filmmakers hadn't flocked up the ending by doing the 'unkillable killer' bit a la Michael Myers and Jason. Damn ending really pis sed me off . . . The 1972 Jess Franco movie LES DEMONS had an ending so simplistic a 10-year-old could have scribbled it on a napkin in McDonald's. I had a minty UNICORN Video (with the lurid artwork on the box front) and traded it because I disliked the ending so much. JACOB'S LADDER, WISDOM, THE USUAL SUSPECTS . . . the ending negates the entire film. Won't watch these again. (I would watch SLITHER again, however). → Here's a movie that sticks to its depressing guns at the end: THE TEACHER (1974).

    Plot holes in movies that you've only just noticed?

    In the 1969 movie SMOKED GOUDA the swiss-cheese manufacturer/competitor commits suicide with a shotgun blast to the cranium and yet when the camera pans in for a close-up there's no hole! Now I ask you, how can a swiss cheese maker who offs himself with a shot to the head not have a hole? Sean Connery's character in 1996's 'THE ROCK' is 110% unbelievable from the word 'go'. I watched it once in 1997 and I could not suspend my disbelief. I'm usually good at suspending my disbelief for over-the-top action movies, but the things his character was doing after being in the slammer for 33 years were just sooooo so unbelievable I was very much put off. Ugh!
  13. Maybe not enough suckers err, members, have joined the TCM Pox Lot so The Powers That Be are holding out resources of better filtering equipment until more folks fork out their $89 smackers? I dunno. NipkowDisc: If TCM ever does show HOT SPELL you might go in to shock and require medical attention! Be careful what you wish for!
  14. spence: MALCOLM FORBES died of a heart attack in February 1990 at age 70. He looked older than 70; he could've passed for 75 easily.

    From TV to movies and vice-versa....

    In regards to THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES movie (released in 1993, I believe): If you liked the show, chances are you'll like the movie. As far as it being "gosh-awful" what exactly was the DFP writer expecting? The Tv series wasn't high art; was the theatrical movie expected to be high-gloss comedy? I thought the movie was rather well-cast myself. And I recall Buddy Ebsen showed up in a cameo as 'Barnaby Jones'.
