If I were on the TCM Guest Programmer spot my top 4 choices would be based on a central theme: controversy. The films are: Fritz the Cat (1972), Akira (1988), Monty Python's The Life of Brian (1979), and UHF (1989). Or an alternative list that would focus on films that are forgotten: Night on the Galactic Railroad (1985), Bugsy Malone (1976), Peyton Place (1957), On the Beach (1959).

You clicked "confused" by my old post regarding this statement of yours. I'm not sure what was confusing about it.

You state here that you would program a night of "controversial" films. I asked in what way Akira or UHF were/are controversial. Your second list is supposedly of movies that are forgotten. I mentioned that I had not, in fact, heard of the first one you mention (Night on the Galactic Railroad), but the others on your list couldn't really be considered forgotten films since they show up on TV and are readily available on home video formats.

I was just testing out the features that were updated on the TCM message board. That was all. I didn't mean to make it problematic or not.

I wanted to acknowledge a film that I watched yesterday, "The Ballad of Jack and Rose" (2005) starring Daniel Day Lewis and Catherine Keener. It is a uniquely fascinating film that I watched unlike any independent film that I have ever viewed.

The film is a story about Jack (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his daughter Rose (Camilla Belle) that is now residing on an island off the mainland of the United States. Jack then tries an experiment in his little utopian society that is living in a new form of society by inviting his girlfriend (Catherine Keener) and her two sons to be a part of this society. But while this newfound society starts off to a great start, but it also has drawbacks to the new residents of the utopian society, by testing sexuality into dangerous extremes. The dangerous outcome of the experiment may also test the relationship between Jack and his daughter Rose not just socially, but also in a tight bond. The film is so natural in dialogue and acting as well as direction. The minimal amount of special effects or computer graphics effects makes this film a breath of fresh air. The film was written and directed by Rebecca Miller. It is an unusual movie, but it is a good movie with a certain amount of character depth as well as social messages that speak to the hearts of teens and adults in a coming of age story that I believe Rebecca Miller has succeeded in achieving to the viewing public. For this film I would give it a 7 out of 10.

Is TCMFanatic still posting these on YouTube? I see you have been providing new links.

No, these were provided by another Youtube username channel called "SonofaSpaceApe". These videos from TCM are still available on the users channel.

Thanks. Obviously I did not click on the link(s). I hope someone is saving copies of these on DVD, since they are valuable.

Have you seen any of the old AMC intros by Bob Dorian and Nick Clooney? I enjoyed those too.

If I have to choose a guest programmer that selected the most interesting films that have not had the chance to be shown on TCM, I think is Tom Kenny back in July 2005. His movie selections are unusual and a sort of rediscovery that are eye-opening and amusing.

Very interesting. I wasn't aware of how Rondo Hatton got his start in Hollywood.

He is actually buried at some cemetary down here in Tampa
