He played like the Lt right? Richard Coogan always has a real strong screen presence, always works well as tough mugs, cops or the like. He does show up a lot in TV shows, always a pleasure!
  2. Man, you know how when you're a workin' stiff, you sorta always look forward to Fridays (provided you work the regular type of work week, that is)??? Well, with Friday Night Noir, it makes looking forward to Fridays even more outrageously awesome!!!! I mean, wow! Here I am counting the hours and minutes until my big bad boy George Raft hits the screen tonight!!! Man, I dig that dude!! I simply cannot wait!!! And the other flix are rock 'em, sock 'em too, no doubt about it!! And wow, we even have some contributions here on our board and in this thread from Eddie Muller himself, that's just out of this universe, man!!! Now that Eddie mentioned that some minutes might be missing from the TCM print of THEY WON'T BELIEVE ME, I'm really curious about that too!!! That's another flick that just sizzle-wizzles, and I agree with comments made that the dames characters in this flick are really richly and densely written and well-portrayed by each of the actresses! Woah, this is gonna be such a groovy night!!
  3. Fred, did you get a chance to see the namesake of this thread as well? I thought Mamie acted really well in GUNS, GIRLS AND GANGSTERS!! If you have a chance, let me know what you think when you see it if you do? Unlike you I love the look of the 50's dames, like Mamie, but I totally understand what you're saying! Hey, I also love the look of early 30's dames too! Not to mention mugs!!
  4. Fred!! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on VICE RAID!!! I think it blended in my sleep-addled, just woke up in the middle of the night braine with some of the other flix, but I did think some of the dialogue was rockin'! A lot like low-budget noir's I tend to dig. Your thoughts on the flick definitely makes me want to catch all of it from the beginning! What I saw of it (bits and pieces of the latter half) looked totally awesome to me!
  5. Sans Fin! Thank you SO much for always sharing your thoughts in my groove fests!!! I really appreciate that you are interested in reading and sharing some of your own grooves with us!!! I have found several that you've mentioned that I tried out and dug!!! Thank you for that! I feel it's all a big groove and we're all just sharing what trips our wire and floats those boats, yanno???!! I'm so happy to hear you dig on THE WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING!!! I really is rockin' to see Eddie G do the dual persona thing! And a great cast to boot!!! And I agree with you about next week's Falcon flick, it's one of the better of them! Barbara Hale is a huge fave of mine too!! If you have the time, I'd certainly appreciate hearing your thoughts about DIAL 1119, if you don't mind?? Thanks again, and hope you're grooving all weekend long!!
  6. > {quote:title=Dargo2 wrote:}{quote}Oh SURE, Mark! No mention of "exciting and fun-packed" "Play-by-Play Account" of *Untamed Youth* here, HUH?! > > (...man, see if I HELP keep you people around here "informed with the latest breaking news" ever again!!!) Haha! Yeah, sorry 'bout that!!! It rocked and I dug it! Sorry!
  7. Miss Wonderly and Hibi, thank you both very much for sharing your thoughts on some of the flix aired last night!!! I totally rocked it!!! I caught UNTAMED YOUTH, but that was it for me for snooze, even though it was not cos of the flick at all, just my usual bed time most week nights! I thought it was a total hoot, loved it!!! I have most of the rest to catch later on the DVR! Course, I've seen GUNS, GIRLS AND GANGSTERS before, and I really dig that, as I have THE GIRL IN BLACK STOCKINGS. I want to catch both again though when I have a chance from the DVR. I woke up in the middle of VICE RAID, and wow, it was soooooo bad kitschy bad, it was sooooo good, kitschy good! Dug it, will have to re-watch from the beginning just to savor it again!! I also caught all of SEX KITTENS GO TO COLLEGE, talk about a hoot-fest, wooooo!!! It may have been one of the tamer, in some ways, flix from the fest, but it was rockin'!! The robot was outta control!! TCM, you guys totally rock for bringing us mini-film fests like these!
  8. TCM Flix to GROOVE Hard TO! Mon, June 24-Sun, June 30!!! Wow, we're closing out June already!!! To check in on the few remaining days of the current week, I invite you to link to my previous groovesfest here: http://forums.tcm.com/thread.jspa?threadID=169699&tstart=30 And before diving into the flix starting this coming Monday gotta give an additional shout out for tonight's Eddie Muller hosted Noir/crime writers theme!!! You start with George Raft, you are definitely getting my attention, baby! NOCTURNE is where it's at, and Raft is gonna hum my evening along, he's my kind of guy, man! What a tough mug! Then it's Robert Young messin with 3, count 'em 3!!! dames...Robert, who woulda thunk it???!!! And then heavy hitters DOUBLE INDEMNITY (featuring a tour-de-force supporting performance by one Eddie G!!!) and THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE to round out the night. Oh yeah, you KNOW what I'm gonna be doing on MY Friday night!!! For the one coming up this next week too!!! Ok..on to the week's grooves!! Let me just straighten up a bit after that all night Mamie Doren fest, wooooooooo!!! Wowza!!! Who needs summer when you have Mamie??!! Hope everyone is doing well and grooving to TCM!!! Monday, June 24 kicks off with a Freddie Mac comedy, CALLAWAY WENT THATAWAY (1951), along with Dottie McGuire and Howard Keel! It's a day filled with doubles/duplicates/impersonations, and it rounds out with Eddie G in a winner from 1935, THE WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING, at 6pm est!!! Also starring Jean Arthur, Arthur Hohl, Wally Ford, Edward Brophy and Donald Meek, this is an outstanding gangster/comedy flick (Eddie G seemed to excel at them!!) where Eddie gets to play a comedic character against type as well as another character which reflects his total gangster, tough mug image! Great performance and coolio flick!! Eleanor Parker owns Mondays in June as our Star of the Month, and she goes out in style with Kirk Douglas in DETECTIVE STORY (1951)!! This is an awesome flick, one that I haven't had the pleasure to see in a lonnnnng time, so I'm really looking forward to grooving! This one features a really great cast as well, including William Bendix, Cathy O'Donnell, George MacReady and Frank Faylen!!! Catch it in prime time right at 8pm EST!!! Not to be outdone, Freddie Mac returns to hang out with Eleanor in the heartwarming comedy, A MILLIONAIRE FOR CHRISTY (1951)!!! I dig this one and can't wait!!! A bit later, at 1:45am to be exact, Ol' Blue Eyes himself in one of his most powerful performances, THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM (1955)!!! Along with Eleanor, this one also features sexy gorgeous Kim Novak and Darren McGavin in one of his sleaziest roles!! This one is on fairly often and it's PD so it's quite readily available, but it still packs a wallop every time!! Up next, the King himself decides to mix it up with Eleanor, and it's a flick I've not seen before, so I'm gonna check it out! I totally dig on Gable, so I'm pretty sure I'll groove to this Western! Another flick I've not seen is A HOLE IN THE HEAD (1959), Ol' Blue Eyes returns this time directed by Frank Capra, and Eddie G shows up in this one too! I simply MUST check this one out!! Eleanor doesn't want to go home from this party, and who can blame her? She's still rocking out at 7:45am on Tuesday, June 25, with yet another flick that sounds intriguing to me and I haven't seen yet: AN AMERICAN DREAM (1966)--murder, eluding police, hoodlum gangs?? It all sounds totally groovin'!! It stars Stuart Whitman, Janet Leigh and of course our girl, Eleanor!!! I'm a total sucka for courtroom dramas, so I gotta be checking out TIME LIMIT, up later in the day at 5:30pm!! Starring Richard Widmark, Richard Basehart, June Lockhart and Martin Balsam this one looks to be riveting, gotta check it out! TCM Primetime for Tuesday will be "Schoolgirl Crushes"!!! Wow, somehow I think a pre-code should be in there in some way, but no...however, the one I'm gonna be groovin' to is yet another flick I haven't seen before: THE RIVER (1951)!!! Directed by Jean Renoir, this one looks to be pretty radically good, so gotta check it. This is the day of new flix for me, so thank you, TCM!! Wednesday daytime is totally radically groovalicious!!! Featuring a lineup of crime/noir flix from 1950, it kicks off with Ida Lupino directing Mala Powers, Tod Andrews and Jerry Paris in OUTRAGE (1950)!!! May seem tame by today's standards, but it was more than likely breakin' ground back in lil ol' 1950!!! Next up, it's a flick I haven't seen in a long time and I'm already drooling, cos it's hotcha sexy Marie Windsor showing up with Richard Denning in DOUBLE DEAL (1950)!! This one is a low budget goodie, baby!! Joan Fontaine being a bad girl???!!! Yep, in BORN TO BE BAD (1950) with Robert Ryan and...gulp....Zachary Scott!! Then it's The Mick gettin' into all kinds of mayhem and trouble in QUICKSAND (1950)!!! Once it starts for the Mick, it's a slippery slope here, with femme fatale, Jeanne Cagney (yep, sis of Jimmy!!) wrapping him around her little finger, and even Peter Lorre shows up in creepy fine form, this low budget public domain noir is one not to miss!! Another one not to miss is up next, again, low budget, but rocks, DESTINATION MURDER (1950) with Joyce MacKenzie, Stanley Clements and Hurd Hatfield, with a totally awesome twist that you just might not see coming!! Marshall Thompson comes unglued in DIAL 1119 (1950) a very underrated thriller, also featuring the sexy dame Andrea King, Virginia Field, Sam Levene and William Conrad!!! Another one not to miss, as is the next one, ARMORED CAR ROBBERY (1950), with tough as nails Charlie McGraw, and say it ain't so, DA Hamilton Burger as a crummy no good mug, well, William Talman anyhoo, also featuring sexalicious bunny Adele Jergens, and Steve Brodie, this one doesn't miss a beat and keeps the action and tough talk coming fast and heavy!!! It'a all about the mob in BLACK HAND (1950), a turn of the century (20th, not 21st silly!!) featuring Gene Kelly, Carrol Naish Marc Lawrence, and Teresa Celli!!! And wrapping up the day, natch, is THE ASPHALT JUNGLE, always rockin'!! Wednesday night's guest programmer is Joseph Abboud, and he picks a slate of heavy hitters, but my groove of the night may not be one he actually selected as it's the last one of the overnight, coming on at 5am, it's Bogie in a totally hilarious WWII programmer, ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT (1942)!!! If you haven't checked this one out, it's highly recommended, with a dream cast!!! Aside from Bogie, you have Conrad Veidt, the lovely Kaaren Verne, Jane Darwell, Peter Lorre (creepy as ever!!), DAme Judith Anderson (being wicked yo!), resident Nazi typecast dude Martin Kosleck, Jackie Gleason, Phil Silvers, William Demarest, and my main men Barton MacLane, Frank McHugh and Edward Brophy!!!! Whew!!! No doubt, man!!! Yeah, this one might not have hit it back when it was released because of the tone of the nation and world around that time, but now, man, it sure resonates!! Funniest scene EVER with Bogie and Demarest trying to pass themselves off as engineers who are spies for the Nazis!!! OMG, just thinking of it has me rolling!!! Now a lot of things make TCM really shine brightly on that old durn cable dial! But I have to tell ya, one of those things is just the daytime on Thursday, how TCM will feature folks in the industry (actors, writers, directors, you name it) who are often overlooked or very little known, even among diehard classic film fans! And man, how about that Thursday lineup, featuring for the first four flix director Felix Feist!!! It kicks off with a totally groovalicious noir/crime flick too!!! THE THREAT (1949), another of those lower budget flix that just rock and roll all the way through, featuring tough dude Charlie McGraw, Michael O'Shea, Virginia Grey, Robert Shayne, Anthony Caruso and Julie Bishop, this one just hums it, daddio!!! 7am, don't miss it!!! Then a flick I've seen around a lot, but never tried out, gonna give it a go, THE BIG TREES (1952) with Kirk Douglas!!! Then at 10am, a sci-fi/noir, DONOVAN'S BRAIN (1953), this flick may seem pretty far out to those not into sci-fi, but stick with it, it has that noir-ish feel to it, and it rocks, starring Lew Ayres, Nancy Davis (yep, Nancy Reagan!!), and Steve Brodie! Another totally groovy flick!! Then it's Patricia Medina's turn to shine in the spotlight for the rest of the day, actually she shows up in Director Felix Feist's last feature, PIRATES OF TRIPOLI (1955), then she shows up in another hybrid flick, this time sci-fi/fantasy/western, THE BEAST OF HOLLOW MOUNTAIN (1956) at 12:45pm, with Guy Madison in the saddle with her!! Then another relatively obscure crime flick, MIAMI EXPOSE (1956), where Patricia rocks it with such heavy mugs as Lee J Cobb and Edward Arnold!!! Lotsa crime flix this week that I haven't seen in a while and can't wait!!! Now Fridays in June have been simply boom-chakka-lakka-lakka!!! With the Noir writers theme throughout! Unfortunately this week will be the final one for the month, but fortunately it will be a rockin' groovy time! But...before we get to the primetime theme, I have to shout it out for the early talkie/musical with Rudy Vallee and Marie Dressler airing at 7:15am on Friday morning: THE VAGABOND LOVER (1929)!!! Also starring Loretta Young's cute spunky sis, Sally Blane, who I used to think was Loretta, that's how much they look alike!! I always dig on these early talkies and these early musicals are fun, fun, fun!!! Now, onto the Noir Writers theme, and to kick it off with Cornell Woolrich, and a totally awesome Val Lewton flick, THE LEOPARD MAN (1943)!!! This is a really moody, atmospheric "horror" flick, in Val Lewton "suggestive horror" stylings, and it contains perhaps two of the very creepiest scenes in all of horrordom!!! Just really intense!! Directed by Jacques Tourneur, it stars Dennis O'Keefe, Jean Brooks, Isabel Jewell, James Bell, and Margo!!! It totally rocks!! Then it's another Woolrich based flick, DEADLINE AT DAWN (1946), with Susan Hayward, Paul LUkas, Joseph Calleia, Osa Massen, Lola Lane and Jerome Cowan, this one really rocks as well!!! Then it's on to Raymond Chandler and two flix featuring the character of Philip Marlowe: MURDER MY SWEET (1944), with Dick Powell (reconstructing his career completely from sweet crooner boy to tough mug!!), Claire Trevor (sexy as all get out!!), Anne Shirley who is just sooooo sweet, Otto Kruger in a menacing performance, and Mike Mazurki!! Wow! And if that isn't enough, it's up to Bogie and Bacall to keep the sparks flying (and just about every dame in the picture is after Bogie, man!!! THE BIG SLEEP (1946), and it just rocks the house totally!!! Wrapping up the overnight sensation, it's LADY IN THE LAKE (1947), directed and starring Robert Montgomery, utilizing the POV perspective that is also in DARK PASSAGE, but doing it throughout the entire flick!!! Innovative, also starring gorgeous Audrey Totter, Lloyd Nolan, and Leon Ames!! And last, but never least, Hitch joins the fray with STRANGERS ON A TRAIN (1951)!! Saturday morning, we rock right out at 9am with MAD MONSTER PARTY (1967)--get that groovy title, daddio!!! Boriw Karloff is on hand to MC the wacky and wild affair! Then it's this week's "Falcon" flick at 10:45am, this time Tom Conway and Barbara Hale return to mix it up in THE FALCON IN HOLLYWOOD (1944)!!! Veda Ann Borg, Sheldon Leonard, Jean Brooks, Rita Corday and Frank Jenks also get in on the act!! Saturday late night and TCM underground features two zingers, starting at 2:30 am: THE PYSCHOPATH (1966)--never seen it, but sounds kinda creepy, might give it a whirl!!! And then, it's Lucille Ball (yeah it is!), Boris Karloff himself, George Sanders, Charles Coburn, Alan MOwbray, Cedric Hardwicke and my main man George Zucco in LURED (1947)!!! Late night Sunday is where the grooves are at, kicking that off at midnight with Silent Sunday night's feature, THE LOVES OF PHARAOH (1922)!!! Directed by Ernst Lubitsch, it stars Emil Jannings, and one I've not seen before!!! Then it's world-wide gangsters with TOKYO DRIFTER (1966) and SALVATORE GUILIANO (1962) to close out the week! Man, that's a really rockin' week, thank you, TCM!!! Hope all my friends on the boards are having great viewing times and may they continue for you! Happy days, TCM mugs and dames!
  9. > {quote:title=TopBilled wrote:}{quote} > > Regarding women screenwriters, I think the more famous ones would have to be selected. Sort of like what Eddie Muller is doing with the pulp and noir writers. Maybe one week each could be devoted to: Frances Marion (some of her best screenplays were the basis for movies that are in the Turner Library); Anita Loos; Lillian Hellman; and Dorothy Parker. Maybe even someone more modern like Nora Ephron could be featured, if there were 5 Fridays in a month. > > As for the directors, Arzner would definitely have to be featured. A large percentage of her early films were pre-codes at Paramount, which may be tough for TCM to obtain-- but worth trying! > I'd be totally down for this type of event, I think it would totally rock! And bring us some early Paramount pre-codes in the process, a double bonus!!!

Maime seems like a sweet girl, but I want all the men on this thread to answer this one question: Do you prefer a volupuhous woman of the fifties or a stick figure actress of today? Glad to hear you had a chance to catch GUNS, GIRLS AND GANGSTERS!!! Woooh! To answer your question, 50's alllllllll the way!!!! No doubt about it!
  11. Welcome to the board, Jymn!!! I'm so with you, it's crazy!!! Totally dig the 30's!!! My favorite film decade of all time! Dig it! Happy viewing!
  12. Hibi, I've seen two before, both crime flix, and both are excellent, in a low-budget psychotronic sort of way, which I dig. GUNS, GIRLS AND GANGSTERS (natch!!), and THE GIRL IN BLACK STOCKINGS--both are awesome really and highly recommended! I've heard really good things about UNTAMED YOUTH and THE BEAT GENERATION as well!
  13. Oh yeah, baby, tonight is the night! I might have to try to stay up longer than usual on a week night! Dig it!
  14. Tonight's lineup would make a really groovy DVD box set!!! *hint hint*
  15. Hibi, I know what you mean!!! I had to clear some space on the DVR, cos I'll have to watch most from there, rather than live! Should be coolio!
  16. Thanks for noting that, Fred!!! It was a pretty darn groovy night! Tonight is Mamie!!! Dig it!
  17. This is a flick I'd not seen before that I really want to check out! Will do so on the DVR soon, but wanted to thank you all for the great background info on the flick!!! Dig it!

What more could anyone want??! All night long, lots of sleaze, mugs, molls, sexy kittens, gangsters, totally 50's man!

  19. > {quote:title=calvinnme wrote:}{quote}I've been wondering where the September schedule is too. I hope they're not making any BIG changes. > So far all of my normal methods of querying the schedule are turning up zip, zilch, nada. Wow, now that's saying a lot! You always do such a totally rockin' job of sniffing out most if not all of the schedule ahead of time! Much appreciated by the way!!! But wow...I wonder what's up! Maybe tons of early Paramount and Universal pre-codes????!!! I can dream, why not dream big!
  20. Wow! I'm thoroughly enjoying the quality of this discussion!!! Lots of really outrageously wonderful thoughts here about this film, about Bogie, Bacall, the other actors, etc! Groove! Now I wish I had saved the flick on the DVR to watch again, cos that's precisely what I wanna do!!! Can't wait until it makes the rounds again on TCM!
  21. Andy, you are SO right!!! NIGHTFALL was indeed, a treat!!! And it totally rocked!!! Wow, the small central cast was really awesome good as well! And you are totally right about Rudy Bond!!! Woah nellie!!! Taut, tense, and intense flick!!!
  22. Tom, I totally dig your review of DARK PASSAGE!!!! I'm kinda guilty of down-lowing this flick as well, but you know what, every time I watch it, as I did last night, I find that I like it more than I remember!!! Weird! It does suck you in and more so with the secondary characters that you mentioned in your review, than the primary ones, IMO! All of them rock, but Clifton James kind of goes against type from what we typically see him in! It works really well, but does unsettle the viewer, initially, I think! I also totally dig the ending, and in a way, though you know Bogie must have gone through some clearing of his name process, it has a bit of a pre-code feel, as though he was able to just get away with everything! Awesome flick, and made more enjoyable both by Eddie Muller's fantastic presentation, and your equally fantastic review!!! Thank you mucho!!
  23. Thank you so very much, Sans Fin, for your kind and encouraging words!!! I'm so gratified to hear this, and I'm honored that you visit my thread weekly!! I also love that you share some of your own grooves if you have some that do not match mine, and I encourage everyone to do that! I have found some gems that I was not aware or, nor thought I would enjoy, in this very way!!! As for RAFFLES, wow, I do not see it on the schedule for the coming week? I wish it was, as I totally dig it!!! It would also fit right in for the Thursday day time schedule, as I believe the theme is "one word titles". It's a radically cool flick!! Thank you again, and hope you are totally grooving to the cool TCM flix!!
  24. Oh wow, Miss Wonderly that's true!!! Interesting!!! Another bonus, I forgot to mention that the final flick for tonight's theme (at 5am est) will be THE UNFAITHFUL, which is one that I really dig! It was on not long ago, but always a fun ride!
