  1. Hey, you should be grateful I haven't gone after Disney's animated version of "The Jungle Book." It could launch a spinoff of this thread.
  2. TCM On Demand for October 22, 2014 The following features are now available on TCM On Demand for a limited time: On Tuesday, October 21, 2014, Turner Classic Movies devoted its prime-time schedule (and the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 22) to the works of Edgar G. Ulmer (1904-1972). The Eastern European filmmaker (he was born in Austria-Hungary) rarely worked on major studio projects, but his smaller, low-budget productions have achieved cult status. Four Ulmer-related films are available on demand until October 28, 2014: 1. The Amazing Transparent Man (1960) -- Margu

  4. By the way, Trebek now looks the way he did when he did his intros and outros for Friday Night Spotlight. http://www.cinemablend.com/television/Alex-Trebek-Shaved-His-Mustache-Again-Here-Why-67823.html
  5. Wrong, Kemosabe! Although Drew Barrymore has chosen romantic comedies as her No. 1 film genre, she distinguished herself as an actress in HBO's 2009 production of "Grey Gardens." The made-for-television movie was based on Albert and David Maysles' 1975 documentary about the eccentric Beales, two onetime socialites related to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Jessica Lange played the mother, 82-year-old Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale ("Big Edie"), while Barrymore co-starred as her 56-year-old daughter, Edith Bouvier Beale ("Little Edie"). The Beales lived together in a rundown, 28-room house in East Hampt
  6. Drew was really good, although I was more impressed by the young Jenna Malone. It's funny how Jenna is in the news a dozen years later because of reports she'll be a female Robin in the 2016 film "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice."
  7. Anything but this... NOTE: Warning for language and content!!! https://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=AomI3YqoEC91oyxcAAxNR3ubvZx4?fr=yfp-t-901-s&toggle=1&fp=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8&p=youtube%20blazing%20saddles%20slim%20pickens
  8. TCM On Demand for October 20, 2014 The following features are now available on TCM On Demand for a limited time: 1. Don't Say No Until I Finish Talking: The Story of Richard D. Zanuck (2013) -- This Turner Classic Movies documentary about the life and career of the Oscar-winning producer and film executive (1934-2012) was written, produced and directed by the French-born filmmaker and author Laurent Bouzereau. It details how Zanuck succeeded in the motion picture industry despite starting out in the shadow of his legendary father, 20th-Century Fox studio head Darryl F. Zanuck. The film bl
  9. And let's not overlook the fact that she's also excelled as a filmmaker. She and her producing partner Nancy Juvonen -- Jimmy Fallon's wife -- teamed up for the two "Charlie's Angels" films that starred Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. Their Flower Films company also produced “Never Been Kissed” (1999),"Donnie Darko" (2001), “50 First Dates” (2004), “Fever Pitch” (2005), “Music and Lyrics” (2007) and “He’s Just Not That Into You” (2009). They also produced "Whip It!," the 2009 roller derby film that marked Barrymore's debut as a director.
  10. It was a big deal when Duke Ellington's granddaughter Mercedes became the first African-American woman to join the June Taylor Dancers on "The Jackie Gleason Show" in the 1960s. It's nice to know she has kept busy in recent years as a choreographer and stage director. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/mercedes-ellington-granddaughter-jazz-legend-duke-step-70-article-1.375770
  11. She was mesmerizing in "A Woman Under the Influence," which earned her a 1974 Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
  12. Wonderful news! She definitely should be on the short list for an honorary Academy Award. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/moviesnow/la-et-mn-gena-rowlands-wins-career-achievement-honor-from-la-film-critics-20141018-story.html
  13. Richard Egan was in "A Summer Place" (1959) with Sandra Dee. Sandra Dee was in "Until They Sail" (1957) with Paul Newman. Next: Carol Heiss.
  14. Did it ever occur to you that maybe they were just putting on a good face for Mr. Charlie and Miz Charlotte?
  15. Yeah, but which version is more historically accurate? Sometimes it amazes me that black people in the South ever survived the 100 years between the Reconstruction period and the civil rights advances of the mid-1960s.
  16. TCM On Demand for October 19, 2014 The following features are now available on TCM On Demand for a limited time: 1. Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) -- Austin Stoker, Darwin Joston, Laurie Zimmer, Martin West, Tony Burton, Charles Cyphers, Nancy Loomis, Peter Bruni, John J. Fox, Marc Ross, Alan Koss, Henry Brandon, Kim Richards. Before his success with the 1978 horror thriller "Halloween," John Carpenter created this low-budget but highly regarded story about a crime gang's bold attack on a Los Angeles police station in its final hours of operation. The film was remade in 2005 by French dir
  17. Aileen Quinn was in "Annie" (1982) with Bernadette Peters. Bernadette Peters was in "Silent Movie" (1976) with Paul Newman. Next: Katherine Heigl
  18. If you saw her special guest appearance as an "American Idol" judge a couple of years ago, you might have reached the conclusion that she's a high-maintenance diva. Then again, she was unbelievably wild and crazy and likeable at Ole Miss during a recent stint as a guest picker on ESPN's College GameDay.
