    HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM

    THAT is one of the best (and underrated) films from Brando. It was also shot mainly in Canada too.

    HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM

    They showed at least four of their films this week. I thought their spoof of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' was interesting.

    Ironically, Daniel Day Lewis played a character loosely based on Fellini in 'Nine': https://static.rogerebert.com/uploads/movie/movie_poster/nine-2009/large_2PSmbXIUWgUVsXq2U1MoVj3f38g.jpg

    HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM

    GLAD that they're showing more films of the 80s and 90s starring the likes of these three stars! They could play in movies of decades past if a time machine was around. LOL
  5. First off, just want to wish you all a Happy New Year and hopefully you all had a Merry Christmas as well. I was happy to see that to ring in the New Year, TCM showed documentaries about MGM musicals and dancing stars. We got to see classic films like 'Singin' in the Rain' to commentary from Russian male dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and the late Debbie Reynolds. Hear the behind-the-screen stories of from Lena Horne and Gene Kelly, among others. The best part about these films, they also pay their respect and recognition to other popular and achieved films of the 70s and 80s. Really, when they say it was a GOLDEN age, they really mean it.

    Spotlight: Songs on Screen with Dave Karger and guest host Chris Isaak

    The last night of the 'Songs on Screen' spotlight was great. 'Jailhouse Rock' star Judy Taylor could have had a very good acting career had she not died the way she did. Elvis really WAS a sweet and caring guy who DIDN'T care about race or whether a girl wasn't interested in dating. Glad hearing that Elvis had an impact on Chris Isaak then and now. (The first time I heard the song 'Wicked Games' I use to think it was an never-before-release Elvis track! 😂) I always thought that 'Tommy' was mainly a famous for the cast great musical numbers as well. Jack Nicholson REALLY sang? Rod Stewart in pal Elton John's role was originally what they wanted? Well, it was a great spotlight they had to close the Friday nights of December.

    LOL Speaking of 'Some Like it Hot'. My mother once said that Tony Curtis could get away with drag because he's so good looking. 😂

    In my opinion, it'll have to be these two: https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/4d14e2af490c3497796701fca456565ea4830ee9/c=0-284-4232-2675/local/-/media/2017/08/24/USATODAY/USATODAY/636391386376780373-XXX-XXX-SUICIDE-SQUAD-83807246.JPG?width=580&height=326&fit=crop When was the Joker and Harley first introduce in the DC comics anyways?

    In Memoriam: Those we lost in 2018

    We have lost many talented and beloved stars, producers, editors and directors of screen and beyond. From the father of Fraser Crane (John Mahoney) to the first big screen Lois Lane (Margot Kidder). From the producer Martin Bregman (close friend of Al Pacino) to Marvel's legendary creator Stan Lee. Those from Japanese cinema to Italian cinema. They may be gone but not forgotten. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ewT7_NrGwM

    Spotlight: Songs on Screen with Dave Karger and guest host Chris Isaak

    Hearing the opinion of 'High Society' was interesting. Chris really couldn't say Bing or Frank were better than the other. I would say I was more into Frank Sinatra. One thing I love the most about that film, THE FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS! Looking forward to the final night where Dave and Chris will discuss 'A Hard Day's Night', 'Jailhouse Rock', and 'Tommy'.

    Spotlight: Songs on Screen with Dave Karger and guest host Chris Isaak

    Chris opinion about the mood of 'To Sir with Love' was a revelation of the times changing since the film's release. In regards to the male lead, Sidney Poitier was excellent in both that and 'Blackboard Jungle'. Good thing they brought up Lulu she is one singer people should know more about. Plus 'Shaft' was really another film which showcase the change of the times as well. Hearing him imitate the waa-waa paddle was funny. Looking forwards to the discussion on two of my mother favorite films, 'Way We Were, The' and 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' plus one I've always liked 'High Society' this coming Friday.

    Jailhouse Rock is my favorite. My favorite of all of the Elvis movies. (My father is a HUGE Elvis fan and he didn't mind most of his movies.) It was the one which truly captured his desire to be a serious actor. I always thought that film was a 'roman a clef' (story with some real life events but names and places changed). Trivia fact: Back in the early 70s when the third 'A Star is Born' was going to be made, Elvis REALLY was serious about playing the male lead and sadly it got stripped from him.

    Spotlight: Songs on Screen with Dave Karger and guest host Chris Isaak

    LOL To answer your first question: Chris Isaak is a Country and Adult Contemporary singer of the 80s and 90s. His most famous song is 'Wicked Games': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBx1Q3DEyDY
  14. I'm glad that this December on every Friday night TCM will be spotlighting movies with famous songs. With the talented and down-to-Earth Chris Isaak giving his take of some of the movies and songs selected. Hearing Dave Karger and Chris discuss 'The Graduate' and the original 'Thomas Crown Affair' last Friday was enjoyable and very insightful. My parents would be in total agreement with their opinions of the song choices for both films. They really wanted Robert Redford and Candice Bergin as the original intended choices for the Graduate though? Learning that the son of Rex Harrison (Noel Harrison) was the singer of the 'Windmills of Your Mind' song for Thomas Crown Affair proves talent runs in the family. Next up: 'Blackboard Jungle' and 'To Sir with Love' both starring the talented and accomplish Sidney Poitier. Looking forward to hearing the insights of these two films.
  15. As I had hoped, the tribute to the late Burt Reynolds is happening this month. Whether your off doing Boxing Day shopping or your finishing you shopping that night, you'll see some of Burt iconic films on December 26th! Here is the line up of the films we'll see: 8:00 p.m. Smokey and the Bandit (1977) and 4:15 a.m. Smokey and the Bandit II (1980) with co-star Sally Field, you can't go wrong. 10:00PM Deliverance (1972), the film based on the controversial book of the same name with the infamous "Squeal like a pig" line. 12:00 a.m. The Longest Yard (1974) the original which also inspired the remake of 2005 which Burt also starred in. 2:15 a.m. Hooper (1978) 6:00 a.m. Best Friends (1982) One film I wish was on that list is the cult classic he did with Dolly Patron, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BE3NqTRfLc
