TCM article: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/558852/Marketa-Lazarova/articles.html

"... The film contrasts the beauty of the film's stark winter landscapes with the potential for violence seen everywhere, both in nature and in the encroachment of humanity. As a result, the film refuses to take sides; the savagery of the pagan Kozliks is just as repellant as the violence of the king's Christian army, because brutality is a natural part of this world. ..... critics now considering it one of the greatest historical films of all time.

I'm glad I recorded this. Wasnt familiar with the film and there's never enough Moreau on TCM! An odd film, but a compelling one. Just a disgrace she never received an honorary Oscar. She's still beautiful in this, though she must be around 40.

Wow! I was certainly intrigued by this announcement. I just checked roughly 24 hours after your post, and it's still blank. I've seen the Treasures from the Disney Vault days left blank for periods of time before, but this is clearly not that. Looking at your list, it's obvious Dec. 20 is the Disney day. I wonder what TCM is planning?

Very mysterious!  I guess I'll set my recorder for the first 3 hours and then see what happens.

Just posting this to say I updated my schedule lists yesterday, I just didn't want to wait much longer.  It looks like no changes to the Premiere list for the month of December (the data was starting to get old, last updated mid October).  I did manage to finalize the stuff for October and November just to get it out of the way and keep any more of a backlog from piling up.  So that is about all for right now.  I'll run the updates again either in earlyJanuary or after they post March's tentative schedule, whichever comes first.

Thurs., 1-4 for                     SOTM:  Charles Boyer....

 

12:30 AM (ET)
B/W - 117 m

TV-PG
 
genre_NONE_expanded.gif
Liliom (1934)
 
 
 

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
D: Fritz Lang. Charles Boyer, Madeleine Ozeray, Florelle, Robert Arnoux, Roland Toutain.

"After fleeing Nazi Germany in 1933, Lang went to France and made this version of Molnar's celebrated fantasy, previously filmed in the U.S. in 1930 and subsequently musicalized as CAROUSEL. Boyer stars as the brutish carnival barker who is killed while committing a robbery to support his pregnant girlfriend and returns to Earth years later to visit his now-grown daughter. Dreamily romantic yet appropriately dark, with superbly stylish sets and photography, particularly in the imaginative sequences depicting heaven."

Into the Wild ( 2007)

Freshly graduated from college with a promising future, 22 year-old Christopher McCandless instead walked out of his privileged life and into the wild in search of adventure. What happened to him on the way transformed this young wanderer into an enduring symbol for countless people. Was Christopher McCandless a heroic adventurer or a nanve idealist, a rebellious 1990s Thoreau or another lost American son, a fearless risk-taker or a tragic figure who wrestled with the precarious balance between man and nature? McCandless' quest took him from the wheat fields of South Dakota to a renegade trip down the Colorado River to the non-conformists' refuge of Slab City, California, and beyond. Along the way, he encountered a series of colorful characters at the very edges of American society who shaped his understanding of life and whose lives he, in turn, changed. In the end, he tested himself by heading alone into the wilds of the great North, where everything he had seen and learned and felt came to a head in ways he never could have expected.

Sat., 1-13 for                         Witness Protection....

 

12:00 AM (ET)
B/W - 103 min


 
genre_NONE_expanded.gif
Murder, Inc. (1960)
A glimpse into Brooklyn's 1930s crime syndicates, where mobsters used hired killers to enact their dirty work.
 
 
 

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
 

D: Burt Balaban, Stuart Rosenberg. Stuart Whitman, May Britt, Henry Morgan, Peter Falk, David J. Stewart, Simon Oakland, Morey Amsterdam, Sarah Vaughan, Joseph Campanella.

Solid little fact-based chronicle of the title crime organization, with Falk in particular scoring as Abe Reles, the syndicate's ill-fated number- one killer. Lots of familiar faces (Vincent Gardenia, Sylvia Miles, Seymour Cassel) in supporting roles. CinemaScope.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
 

D: Rouben Mamoulian. Henry Fonda, Gene Tierney, Laird Cregar, Spring Byington, Marjorie Gateson, Iris Adrian, Clara Blandick, Mary Treen.

Con artist Tierney falls for Fonda instead of fleecing him; standard romance with good cast hoping to repeat success of Fonda's THE LADY EVE.

 

2:00 AM (ET)                                TCM Imports....
B/W - 88 m

TV-PG
 
genre_NONE_expanded.gif

Synopsis: A middle-class couple struggles to raise their infant son, as seen through the two-year-old's own eyes.
DirKon Ichikawa CastFujiko Yamamoto , Eijii Funakoshi , Kumeko Urabe .

 

".... Ichikawa's refusal to over-dramatize many of the aspects of child-rearing, along with the clever inclusion of Taro's thoughts on the whole matter, make Being Two Isn't Easy feel like an outlier in the crowd. The skill of all involved, from director to actors, provide a lighthearted yet earnest take on the joy and terror of being a first-time parent. "
