  1. I watched the other night, a film Ive never heard of " Another Christmas Carol" a new variation of the "Scrooge" story but so different so original and so anti war!!! Film was directed by my personal favorite director, JOSEPH L.MANKIWIECZ . ( excuse spelling) I was overwhelmed!!! Its the same basic story but involving wars of past present and future. Great cast!! Sterling Hayden, as the Scrooge Character, and STEVE LAWRENCE ( the singer) as ghost of Christmas past, Ben Gazzara( as Hayden;s nephew), Peter Sellers as ghost of Christmas future ( I dont know actor who played Christmas present but that was the most dramatic section of the film). Also Eva Marie Saint, Britt Elkland etc. I watched it again on Xfinity and said this is scary, eerie, very dark but a great variation of the Dickens classic Thank you TCM for introducing me to another wonderful film!!!!

  10. " The Guilt Trip" starring Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen opened to mixed reviews and fair box office But everyone I know (who has seen it) agreed its a very good film, Streisand is excellent, and you come out of theatre feeling good. The problem with reviews and box office is the way film was promoted and time of release. The previews ( Theatre and Tv) Hint thats its a wild slapstick Fockers like comedy... It Is NOT! Its a very ,warm family drama with comic effects.. Streisand plays a Jewish mother living in NJ . Her son is a chemist inventor on west coast When he visits his mom he realizes shes in a "rut" doesnt go out much, not many friends etc.. He feels for her, He is planning a coast to coast car ride to promote his product. He decides to ask his mom to join along She hesitates and then agrees. ..and along this 3,000 mile journey they learn more about each other and improve their relationship. He introduces mom to many different things which change her life eg. drinking Margaritas etc... There are some very funny moments, some tense moments, and tender/ moving moments Many people cried in several scenes.. Yes there is laughter but is not a Comedy Its a family human interest film about a mother and son,, Very fast paced and well edited. Directed by Anne Fletcher 95 minutes of pleasure... Not a great film but one worth seeing Streisand and Rogen are excellent Streisand should have been Golden Globe nominated.. ,yes shes natural, warm and funny The other problem It was released at wrong time with all the year end giants If it were released around Mothers Day might have fared better..Go see it and judge for yourself 1/10/13
  11. Susan Hayward is one of my favorite actresses both beatiful beutful and talented..I dont believe theres been a SUSAN HAYWARD MONTH? Why not ?big box office star 1950s and 60s, 5 Oscar Nominations one win and a roster of great films from 40s on: Her Oscar naominations were for 1) Smash Up/Story of A Woman 2) My Foolish Heart ( love that movie) 3) With A Song In My Heart (The Jane Froman Story) yes she lip synched but did a beautiful job 4) Ill Cry Tomorrow( The Lillian Roth Story should have Won! and did her own singing!! 5) I Want To Live ! Finally won best actress Oscar in 1958 and.............................. No one could play an alcoholic like Hayward!!! Other good films, I Can Get It For You Wholesale, House Of Strangers, The Lusty Men, Demetrius and Gladiators, Snows of Kilamanjaro, Rawhide, Ada,Back Street, Where Love Has Gone(with Bette Davis) I Thank A Fool and a fine TV film : Say Goodbye Maggie Cole etc etc C'mon Osborne and Mankiewiecz ( spelling?) you guys do a great job but give Susan Hayward a bit more attention like she deserves and a Susan Hayward month pleae.. On her birthday last time 3 films only during midday ? Edited by: fanofBabs on Jan 10, 2013 5:30 AM
