I know there's always a theme involved in the selections. This year was history. I'm not sure about next year's theme, but here's what I'd like to see:

 

A Frank Sinatra retrospective of Frank the actor:

 

From Here To Eternity

 

The Man With The Golden Arm

 

The Manchurian Candidate

 

Von Ryan's Express

 

50th Anniversary Salutes to:

 

Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf

 

The Sand Pebbles

 

The Blue Max

 

Born Free

 

John Frankenheimer tribute:

 

Seconds

 

Grand Prix

 

Sam Fuller Tribute:

 

The Crimson Kimono

 

Shock Corridor

 

The Big Red One

A Frank Sinatra retrospective of Frank the actor: (4 BIG STARS!)  my only other all-time hero and idol & was even in a superlative FAn-CLub based down here in Lakeland, FL I still have hefty bags of stuff they sent, then typically it folded?)

 

From Here To Eternityn (*****-stars!)=(swept 8 huge Academy awards, including *Frank's) (Remade for tv in a well made (***) 1979 tv movie/mini-series with Natalie Wood, W. Devane, Steve Railsback, Joe Pantaliano, Kim Basinger & Peter Boyle) (Sadly was NATALIE'S only Golden Globe victory?)

 

The Man With The Golden Arm (***1/2) & his fav role) As Frankie the machine

 

The Manchurian Candidate (4 BG STARS!) Brilliant on every level!

 

Von Ryan's Express (***-out of 4 stars)

 

50th Anniversary Salutes to:

 

Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? (***1/2)

 

The Sand Pebbles (4!)-(my very first hero as a kid age 9 to 15 "King of Movie Cool" Steve McQueen-(l930-l980) snagged his only shot at an Oscar too, deserved it more for '73's "Papillion" though)

 

The Blue Max (**-out of 4_

 

Born Free (***1/2)-(won both song & Score by *J. Barry)

 

John Frankenheimer tribute:

 

Seconds-(yet to see it?)

 

Grand Prix (***)

 

Sam Fuller Tribute:

 

The Crimson Kimono

 

Shock Corridor

 

The Big Red One (***1/2)

 

BOT SOME MORE? ^ to join in, gotta' he's my runner up hero & idol, barely after The Great: Spencer Tracy-(l900-l967) Ever see the two in 1961's "Devil at "4 0'Clock" (l96l)only ok due to these 2 heavyweights (**1/2)?

 

Essential *Sinatra Cinema:-(as all know TCM GP'S just limited to just 4 selections, due to time & legal issues, EXAMPLE: They still cannotboard Disney's gloriousous n^ iodf course *Disney's glorious era of "Piniocchio" "Fantasia""Dumbo" & others, still don't know why thoughout wil tcm ever give an inch of an sweer either???? & you know what same goes & strangely with *GFI" & GFII*???)

 

My own favorite  Essential Sinatra motion pictures (NOTE Excuse sloppy writing, machine right now & I am more then ill) (out of 58)

1. 1958 "Some Came Running" (l958-MGM) 1940's era, not *GFT & GFII   (TRIVI(A: Eli Wallach was set fr Maggio, but his Ava, Harry Cohn & mobster Johnny Rosselli=(murderred_ that to Eli Wallach Franki  Aldo Ray was set to -play R0bert E. Lee Prewitt, but at peastommited that wajmted Cplifrs old Clift instead) OOPS, sorry got analysis & year wrong,. but that was accurate what I posted at any rate. seems like everybody in "Some Came Running" earned nominations, except Frank & Dino, *Shirley stole the show, huh>& yet another powerful score by *E. Bernstein  Filmed in Tarahote) Mny dubbed this a sequel of sorts to "Eternity" due to the famed writer)>

2. "From Here to Eternity"-(easily ranks among Hollywoods top ten great WW11 pix!)

3. "Man With the Golden Arm" (check outtheheavyweights vs. Frank for 1955 though *Borgnine in "Marty" JD in "East of Eden" Spencer Tracy in "Bad Day at Black Rock" James Cagney in "Love Me or Leave ME!"  YOU DECIDE?  Plus, the always underrated legendary Robert Mitchum in "Night of the Hunter" not nommed though (TRIVIA: Bob's fav role & movie though was '57's "Heaven Knows Mr. Allison" instead & made around 97 pix)
