  1. You hit on one of my favorites. I saw him in a movie, 'Round Midnight (1986) a long time ago. I don't remember much of the movie, but I remember Mr. Gordon doing a fine job and a commanding presence. Wish TCM would air it.
  2. I'm not talking about existing title sequences, live or otherwise, but music you've always thought would go well as we watched the opening sequence of a movie. Songs I thought include: What kind of movie would that be? Well, just like the song says, someone working for the FBI who gets blindsided by a long cool woman. Maybe she's bad, maybe she's good, but we don't find out until the end. Almost anything by Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, but this is good: A story about an onagainoffagain relationship between an onagainoffagain man and a woman who's to
  3. Tried watching Shine a Light (2008). It was so visually tiring I gave up in less than twenty minutes. The energy in a concert movie has to come from the performers. Scorsese seemed to think it necessary to have vigorous camera movement and fierce editing to capture or communicate the Stones' performance. For me, it was a distraction.
  4. Woodstock. These artist's performances are why Mon Pop is better. Who cares about the filming and direction? It's all about the music. Janis kills. Jimi destroys. Ravi enthralls. And The Who. And Otis.
  5. falcios explained it. Canada once again facing cavalier treatment.
  6. It's in mine. Maybe month schedules are different depending on the browser or operating system. Seems the message boards do.
  7. It's probably I Love My Wife But! (1946): http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/637688/I-Love-My-Wife-But-/
  8. If you like that, there's another movie focusing on Chuck Berry, called Chuck Berry Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll (1987). It's on YouTube, but you have to (ulp!) pay for it.
  9. Wasn't expecting to catch all of The Song Remains the Same (1976), but ended up hanging around for the whole thing. For all it's hard rock image, Led Zeppelin's stage presence is--how to describe it?--almost sedate, introspective, even meditative. The certainly don't have the exuberance, the frenetic, even frenzied energy of The Who, bordering on anarchy. Surprised and pleased to hear some of their lesser known songs in addition to the standard hits. The interludes were a waste of time. At least they didn't stop the music. Am I right in thinking Ben is a fan?
  10. At least you got a thread out of him.
  11. Hard to convince me when you are taking seriously my facetiousness.
  12. The Kids Are Alright (1979) was . . .alright. I mean Alright! Great overview of The Who while still having exciting concert footage. And if you were attentive, toward the beginning you could catch Pete Townshend recounting the origins of the rock opera.
  13. I'm sensing deeper issues here. Childhood rock trauma no doubt.
  14. Why, that's Johnny Mathis, singing "Most of All There's You."
  15. So you won't be groovin' on Janis Joplin and Ravi Shankar. . . .aww, too bad.
  16. Liked T. A. M. I. (1964). Was pleasantly surprised by Gerry and the Pacemakers and Lesley Gore ("You don't own me. . ."). Chuck Berry a gas as always. Beach Boys and Supremes a surprising letdown. The Stones--yeah, The Stones. . . .But James Brown. Man, a knockout! But, oh the sound! Ugh! One long scream from the audience. But. The Main Event: Let the Good Times Roll (1973). One of the best Rocknroll concert movies. What a lineup! Little Richard, Chubby Checker, Fats Domino. And the best: Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley. The two guys who invented Rock and Roll. And everyo
  17. I repeat, #9. is a production still from the movie Rockabye (1932), with Constance Bennett and Joel McCrea:
  18. 2. Louis Calhern and Kay Francis? 4. I agree. Definitely not either. Looks like some kind of literary adaptation. 5. Ava Gardner and Janis Carter in My Forbidden Past (1951). 9. Looks like Constance Bennett and Joel McCrea in Rockabye (1931).
  19. There are no shortage of movies with that story line, but one of my favorites is Forbidden (1932) with Barbara Stanwyck and Adolphe Menjou: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/28115/Forbidden/ Click on the READ THE FULL SYNOPSIS link.
