Friday, July 13:

A pair of Allison Hayes flicks amongst some strange films.

The Disembodied (1957) 8:30 am

Hayes is married to a jungle doctor who is quite a bit older than she is. Pretty boy Paul Burke shows up. So what could go wrong here? Outside of Hayes doing some kind of half-a**ed voodoo dance, there is nothing else to see here.

The Hypnotic Eye (1960) 4:30 pm

Besides Hayes, there are some other good-looking women in the cast. Hayes utters the immortal line "If you like my beautiful face so much, you may have it!" Pay close attention and you will see that someone has used a sexy photo of Jayne Mansfield as a dartboard.

I saw Eye on tv as a kid and that opening sequence scared me to death!

You said it. It's almost like two bland actors possessed the bodies of Henry Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck for a couple of hours. It is a very dull film.

I know.  I've seen it, too.  Who would've thought?  I blame the writers.

RE: YOU BELONG TO ME

Now in a way, I almost want to see it...the only time I've ever seen Stanwyck off her game is in ANNIE OAKLEY.

Maltin's review claims "seems to have been made in three days."

(apparently this may be one of the rare occasions when he's on the money.)

Are you implying Maltin is usually off "the money", Lorna?


Because if you are, then I have just entered your name in my will, for some moola and all my dvd's and also my utmost admiration.

If not, well, just forget what I said...

vivre-sa-vie-1200-1200-675-675-crop-0000

2:30 a.m.  Vivre Sa Vie (1962).  It will be interesting to see how this Jean-Luc Godard film holds up today.

That was the first Godard movie that I saw, and I liked it. I haven't liked much else from him that I've seen.

I so agree about Annie Oakley. And WHAT does Warner Brothers do when it releases the Stanwyck  Signature  DVD Collection in 2007? Of the five films one is Annie Oakley, one of her worst films, and a second is Executive Suite, which is a good film but Stanwyck was a supporting player in that one. I think Warner Brothers didn't figure that BluRay would gain so much popularity so fast AND didn't figure on streaming coming fast on Blu's heels. Also, just like everyone, they did not see the crash of 2008 coming or the nine year long Depression that followed it. If WB had known that the Signature Collection was their one and only chance to honor Stanwyck, they might have included more substantial films. The same with Cagney's Signature collection.

The First Deadly Sin is coming on late this afternoon/early evening and stars Frank Sinatra in his last film performance.  I haven't seen it since I saw it in the theater back  in 1980.  Sinatra is really good as a world-weary cop who has to find a serial killer before he retires.  Faye Dunaway plays his dying wife and isn't given much to do as she's bedridden during the whole film but highly recommended for Sinatra and a fine supporting cast.  Neo-noirish thriller.

Last minute recommendation: Return from the Ashes. Not many films have a more stunning opening scene than this one. It's a 1965 Euro-noir with the sexes reversed. Maximilian Schell has the femme fatale role and Ingrid Thulin is a wealthy doctor returning from a concentration camp.

Great film. I enjoy it even more than the 1940 version.

Vivre sa Vie is a great film but I still prefer Week End and La Chinoise when it comes to Godard.

I haven't seen La Chinoise, but Week End is my favorite Godard movie.

I've seen it and recommend it to fans of political history (like me  ?).
