I hope they show it again, since I'll be busy tomorrow, and not confident in my ability to record it properly.

Assuming you're okay with the movie being spoiled, he wasn't actually pregnant. :D

If you REALLY want to see that theme, I suggest 1978's Rabbit Test with Billy Crystal, directed by Joan Rivers!

What's the story behind the "rabbit test", anyway? Was that a real medical thing or just an urban myth? If a rabbit died, you knew you were pregnant? What kind of Theodoric Barber of York medieval medicine was that? How did that even work? Did PETA ever protest this procedure? I need information!

Programming note:

Because of the recent schedule change to provide a memorial tribute to Neil Simon on the evening of September 14, the TCM premiere showing of The Wild Affair (1965) has been cancelled.  The list of September premieres in the message above has been modified to reflect the revised schedule.

Who was in The Wild Affair? I dont remember it.....

This came up in another thread. I forget which one. It's a British film. Terry Thomas in a supporting role was the only cast member I'd ever heard of.

I can't read it either, but it's the only one I found. I'm not sure how much either Bessie Love or Frank Finlay are in the movie, as they were far down in the credits.

late Sat. 9-1

3:30 AM (ET)
B/W - 127 m

 
genre_NONE_expanded.gif

Synopsis: A dying man reluctantly takes on a job as a hit man in order to have money to leave to his widow.
DirWim Wenders CastBruno Ganz , Dennis Hopper , Lisa Kreuzer .

".... After casting Hopper, an experienced director, Wenders decided to cast directors in all of the gangster roles, including Gérard Blain, Nicholas Ray, and Samuel Fuller. ....

The Critics Consensus reads "The American Friend is a slow burning existential thriller that does justice to the Patricia Highsmith source novel." [7]Roger Ebert gave the film three stars (out of four), writing: "[Wenders] challenges us to admit that we watch (and read) thrillers as much for atmosphere as for plot. And then he gives us so much atmosphere we're almost swimming in it."[8] .....

Henpecked Hoboes (1946) has already aired on Cartoon Alley episode 35.

I have Sports Slants #1 in my collection so I have to assume that has aired before as well.

Up in the Air ( 2009)

A corporate efficiency expert lives his life in airplanes, airports, hotels and rental cars.

Faced with the prospect, at once terrifying and exhilarating, of being grounded, he begins to contemplate what it might actually mean to have a home.

 

 

Dir Jason Reitman Cast George Clooney , Vera Farmiga , Anna Kendrick .

BW- 109 mins, CC,

"Up in the Air makes it look easy. Not just in its casual and apparently effortless excellence, but in its ability to blend entertainment and insight, comedy and poignancy, even drama and reality, things that are difficult by themselves but a whole lot harder in combination. This film does all that and never seems to break a sweat."[ ....

Oh, wow, I would love to check this out, but very unlikely I will be up at that time. If I think about it, I'll record it.

I see that it is available on WATCH TCM ON-DEMAND for the next seven days.

Updates to my project are uploaded.

Premieres
http://moviecollector.us/reports/Future_Premieres.htm

Project page
http://moviecollector.us/reports.htm

This was a small update, only three months (Aug, Sept, Oct), usually I do four or sometimes even five at a time.  If they come out with new months before...let's say the middle of the month...then I "may" retroactively apply those (in other words just add the new months, not rework any existing).

Re The American Friend -- I recorded it and started to watch it yesterday, but I just couldn't stay with it.  I think my biggest problem was Dennis Hopper, who isn't my idea of Tom Ripley.  Patricia Highsmith is one of my favorite writers, and I've read all of the Ripley books and have a definite mental picture of what Ripley would be like.  Strictly my own conception, of course.

For me, the preppy types who have played him, such as Matt Damon, Anthony Perkins, and even Alain Delon, fit the image a lot better than Hopper.  Also, I don't particularly care for Hopper to begin with.  I do like Bruno Ganz, though.

I did some reading on the movie, and learned that at first viewing, Patricia Highsmith didn't like it either, but she saw it more than once, and began to like it more.  This is saying something, because Highsmith was one of the most difficult people to ever walk the earth.

So I'm glad it's on demand now.  I'll try to get through it with a more open mind.

Scarecrows ( 1988)

A mercenary group falls prey to dark forces after parachuting into an eerie cornfield.

Dir: William Wesley  Cast: Ted Vernon, Michael Simms, Richard Vidan

"Tightly paced and consistently tense, this low-budget film has slick production values (making it appear more expensive than it probably was) and only falters in some laughably overwrought performances".[
