    classic b pictures
  1. Wesley Clark was a very bland host I truly doubt if he has ever viewed many of the pictures he introduced."King & Country" was a powerful and deeply moving WW1 film. Better than "Paths of Glory"

    Expand the Underground

    It's kinda like a guilty pleasure to see these Quality actors like Ford, Fonda, Winters, Huston et al showing their acting chops in these Underground features.Were these movies ever reviewed by legit critics?They sure must have had limited releases.

    Silent Sundays - July, 2014

    No fan of Silents. But if i see a few more like "The Trail of 98" I will be!It had everything. Stunning visuals. No words were needed.The amazing Cooper River Rapids scenes. No wonder they were so realistic. Four stuntmen were killed filming them...the climb up dangerous and snowyChikoot Pass where hundreds of the Gold Fever prospectors looked like tiny ants crawling...the avalanche...the fight between Forbes abd Carey. Now That was a brawl!This almost forgotten last of the MGM Silents will certainly be remembered by TCMers after viewing. And one more thing..Director Clarence Brown sure knew his stuff!

    Janet Leigh as SOTM October 2014

    Janet Leigh as STOM is OK. I wish Terry Moore would be a future SOTM.She was a gifted child actress who grew up to be an Oscar nominated super star in dramas and musicals and westerns.

    Expand the Underground

    You are so right! That "Baby" has been popping up a lot. There is a trove of "underground" films out there. Films that have never seen the light of day for most fans. TCM should act as an Underground prospector and dig up some of these undiscovered nuggets.

    Ahhhh...."Pandora's Box" on July 27. I will watch again. The kiss under the mistletoe is so memorable.Stays with you.

    Expand the Underground

    "So Evil, So Young" entertained in a strange and curious way. It really could not be compared to "Caged" for there were no real name stars.Jill Ireland was lovely and her boyfriend played by John Charlesworth committed suicide by gas at age 24 before the film was released.Sometimes the lives of the casts in these pictures are far more interesting than the movies themselves.The band in the film reminded me of the Beatles.

    Expand the Underground

    It is a great idea to expand TCM Underground to two nights.Time can put a" Halo" on a lot of these Underground movies. These guilty pleasures can truly entertain, titilate, sometimes make you gasp and make you wonder did they ever see an audience before TCM airings.

    Melvyn Douglas as SOTM September 2014

    It's about time for STOM for Douglas.As he matured, his performances also did with him. More depth as shown in his two Oscar winning roles.

    Silent Sundays - June 2014

    Valentino was at his best in "Conquering Power." He looked so modern..a today man, It is easy to see why so many thousands attended his funeral. He captivated.

    THE CRYING GAME (1992)

    An awful movie.Already dated and not controversial

    THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG

    What a surprise! The color! The music! The acting! That wonderful ending in the snow! All singing musicals like "Les Miz" are a turn off to me...but "Umbrellas"was different. There have been stage versions of this charmer.

    Sid Caesar dies at 91

    Altho his movie credits were quite sparse, he was quite good in the ones he did. Showed versatility.

    Foreign films on TCM Feb. 3 & 4

    "The Burmese Harp". What a beautiful and moving film! It made me realize America for the most part is a caring and forgiving nation. Honoring Japanese films like "Roshoman" with Oscars a decade after Pearl Harbor."The Burmese Harp"with it's vivid and memorable black and white images...the footprints in the mud...the raindrops on the barbed wire fences...the parrot on the Monk's shoulder...and the faces of the Japanese soldiers dreaming of going home after the War....to a home that may never be....and the haunting music on the harp.
