  1. Bronxgirl, "The Other" is a disturbing "horror" movie from Robert Mulligan. I remember seeing it as a child and it terrified me! Great performances-especially Uta Hagen. Another recent movie that I would say fits into the "horror" category is "Beloved." With Oprah Winfrey. She plays a "former slave" right after the Civil War who's life is over come with "ghosts." She gives a powerful performance in a powerful (over-looked) film.
  2. Here's a playful tribute someone posted on YouTube-
  3. Bronxgirl, are you sure you're not on the Chunky pay roll...
  4. No mention of "Jesus Christ Superstar" or "Agnes Of God" either. Jewison has a fascinating fascination with pride and prejudice.
  5. Congratulations, Kyle! Does this mean drinks are on you? I just know that you'd come up with some crazy concoction I'd get hooked on immediately... Great covers, as always, filmlover! This has been a fun challenge and many thanks to sugarpuss for a great job-despite all the "technical" difficulties. I can just hear you "cussing out" these boards the past couple of weeks...I know I did several times! Kudos to all involved. TCM, can you hear us now?
  6. Thanks, Dewey! sugarpuss, I went back to my original post (in the challenge thread) and discovered the omissions there. I just assumed they happened as a result of all the changes being made on the board(s) that week. But you say you saw my schedule intact? Strange. Maybe it's my computer or connection or whatever...I'm a novice at all these "technical" things. However, I have noticed that some of my (entire) posts appear and disappear and reappear. Maybe I should take up "magic."
  7. Here's a link to an amazing YouTube collection! http://www.youtube.com/TVNETWORKS
  8. Thanks, Lynn and FrankGrimes, for the votes! It means a lot...especially since my schedule appears somewhat confusing. I just noticed that there are several curious omissions from my orignal posted schedule? Including 8 of my theme/song titles..."Curiosity Killed The Cat," "Bizarre Love Triangle," "The Lady Is A Tramp," "Turning Japanese," "True Colors," "Did You Ever See a Dream Walking," "We Got The Beat" and Yo Ho Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life For Me.) Also missing are some Patsy Kelly/Thelma Todd shorts that were part of my birthday tribute to Patsy. Those darn gremlins! Anyway, sorry for you guys having to "fill in the blanks."
  9. Joey and Dallesandro were married in the movie ("Cry-Baby".) Joey and Ray also had a short lived TV variety show in '75 called "Joey And Dad." Pat Paulsen and Henny Youngman were also on it. Joey's brother, Dick, was a radio dj in the '70's/'80's. Here's Jill Sobule's tribute to "Joey-"
  10. We've decided that our "theme" this year (for our front yard Halloween decorations) is spiders! So I guess my list would include- "King Kong" (33) "Cat-Women Of The Moon" (53) "Tarantula" (55) "The Incredible Shrinking Man" (57) "The Lost World" (60) "Village Of The Giants" (65) "Spider Baby" (68) "Spider" (2002) And, of course- "Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars" (73)
  11. I'm sorry I missed it too. And where is Joey Heatherton!! The last time I saw her she was "speaking in tongue" and married to Joe Dallesandro in John Water's "Cry Baby." Of course, there was the layout in Playboy. Her last movie was some strange, experimental movie called "Reflections Of Evil" in 2002. She was billed as the "Serta Spokeswoman." Read about it here, but be prepared to be confused... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0350044/ There's also another interesting movie from MGM called "Twilight Of Honor." Joey received a Golden Globe nomination for this movie-for best newcomer. It also received a couple of Oscar nods-for best art direction and Nick Adams for supporting actor. I wonder why this never shows up on TCM...
  12. Bronxgirl, thanks for the Southern Gothic appreciation. I LOVE anything Southern Gothic and, having grown up in the Mississippi delta, I lived it! I don't know if it's possible to "pinpoint" what fuels this "genre," but I'd have to say it's the humidity and iced tea. Just spend a day sweating and drinking pitcher after pitcher of iced tea (with all that caffeine and massive amounts of sugar) and you'll be buzzing around like a "queen bee" slappin' every cousin that looks at you crooked. I enjoyed Fay too. I just wish they would have included a scene of them having to drag her off-letting go with one of her best "King Kong" screams. There were just too many memorable lines, but one of my favorites was-"Whatever I am-and I know what I am-you can't get away from me." Talk about The Tao Of Joan!
  13. This was a tough one. All the schedules are terrific-very creative and filled with movies I love (or would love to see.) Congratulations to everyone... and Good Luck! There is one schedule that really blows my mind...and so I cast my vote for our resident "mad mixologist..." Kyle (Who went through the looking glass) In Hollywood After re-reading his schedule (and notes) I have to quote Marilyn Monroe (in "The Seven Year Itch")-"Isn't it delicious!" Kyle, your schedule is like...well, it's like eating a banana split at Serendipity III on Halloween night while Carol Channing reads beat poetry to you. Crazy, man, crazy!
  14. Here's another great short from Chuck Workman. It's the Oscar winning "Precious Images." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkomAdFxniw
  15. Hi, pktrekgirl Have you seen "The Roman Spring Of Mrs. Stone?" I don't know if Tennesse Williams is your cup of tea, but I think this is one of the best film adaptations of his work...and one of my favorite Vivien Leigh performances. It is depressing. (Don't expect a happy ending.) Her performance is even more moving considering she was going through the painful divorce from Laurence Olivier. The movie also features a marvelous performance from Lotte Lenya (as a pimp!) She should have won the supporting actress Oscar. And Warren Beatty (despite his phoney Italian accent) ain't bad to look at! Anyway, check out this video...before it gets removed...
