About The Old Trickster

  1. I don't know why they don't. I don't think they ever have. On the DVD, I recently contacted Warner Archive inquiring about the DVD release and they said something about "clearance issues" precluding its release. I hope it's resolved soon, it's a great picture.
  2. My personal favorite Vic Morrow film was the little-seen "Portrait of a Mobster" in which he played the legendary gangster Dutch Schultz. He also made a great war picture that was aired not too long ago called "Men In War". He was a great character actor. Always was one of my favorites.
  3. ACTRESSES: Tina Louise Dawn Wells Melody Patterson Shirley Maclaine Tuesday Weld ACTORS: Larry Storch Dwayne Hickman Darryl Hickman Henry Silva David Hedison
  4. I don't have any favorites from any particular year but my favorites of the 80's are 1. The Thing (1982) 2. Blade Runner (1982) 3. Blue Velvet (1986) 4. Victor/Victoria (1982) 5. Escape From New York (1981) 6. Stop Making Sense (1985) 7. Nighthawks (1981) 8. Barfly (1987) 9. Predator (1987) 10. Videodrome (1982) Runner-ups: Scanners (1980), House of Long Shadows (1985), 10 to Midnight (1983), Death Wish III (1985), The Dead Zone (1983) and Under the Cherry Moon (1986). Under the Cherry Moon is so bad it's good
  5. 16 mm? Wow, that's awesome! Very rare stuff. I saw Portrait of a Mobster not too long ago when it was briefly available on Youtube and was blown away by Vic Morrow's performance. He could play a heavy character really well. Has there been any word of a DVD release? I haven't heard any. And Murder Inc is a hell of a picture as well. Excellent performance by Peter Falk. TCM should air both movies regularly, they would be great additions to the upcoming schedule.
  6. Anyone remember the movie Pretty Boy Floyd? Fairly decent gangster picture. I believe it was one of Peter Falk's first movies.
  7. Well, it all depends on the movie. Like I said, historical or critical status should affect whether the film should be shown or not. I'm not bashing the 80's, just considering it a bit recent. When I think of the 80's, I don't think of it as in 30 years ago. I still consider the 80's and 90's to be very, very recent.
  8. Good point. But still, it's always a worry to me that the best stations will eventually sell out. Never said that it would happen, just fearful that it could. Anything is possible.
  9. Eraserhead (1976) Wild in the Streets (1968) Revolution (1968) The Subterraneans (1960) The Beatniks (1960) The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976) Home of the Brave (Laurie Anderson) (1986) The Creeping Terror (1964) Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957) The Monster of Piedras Blancas (1959) The Crawling Eye (1958) Anything directed by Ed Wood Martin (1976) Chelsea Girls (1966) McVicar (1980) Quadrophenia (1979) Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill (1965) Seconds (1968) Horror of Party Beach (1964)
  10. Personally I'm not such a big fan of it. There are so many movies made post-1970 that TCM has never, ever shown. If I wanted to watch "Sleepless in Seattle", I could just put on Lifetime or some other station. TCM is the station for CLASSIC movies, not romantic comedies from the 1990's or CGI rampant science fiction. TCM is the station for movies like Casablanca and Mildred Pierce, not "Minority Report" or "Sleepless In Seattle". These more recent movies may be enjoyable, but they don't belong on a classic movie channel. I hope TCM doesn't pull a TV Land and drop the classics for abysmal new r
  11. The Thing (1982) Blade Runner Mask of Dimitrios La Vita e' Bella The Umbrellas of Cherbourg The Scarlet Claw White Heat Portrait of a Mobster Creature from the Black Lagoon The Great Escape The Guns of Navarone Victor/Victoria Taxi Driver The Incredible Shrinking Man Sunset Boulevard Blue Velvet Kiss of Death (1947) Murder Inc. Bullitt To Kill a Mockingbird La Strada Duck Soup The Dirty Dozen This Island Earth House of Wax (1953) Three Strangers
  12. I saw Machine Gun Kelly on AMC a few years ago as well. It was on very late at night. Wasn't that good of a film. Recently TCM aired Al Capone with Rod Steiger. That was pretty good.
  13. 1961: 1. Portrait of a Mobster 2. The Guns of Navarone 3. The Hustler 4. Splendor in the Grass 5. Mad Dog Coll 6. The Pit and The Pendulum 7. The George Raft Story 8. Mr. Sardonicus 9. La Dolce Vita 10. Posse From Hell Haven't seen any of these in many years. Especially Portrait of a Mobster. That one was Vic Morrow's first starring role.
  14. Anyone remember this movie? Hasn't been aired on television in years. There were a couple other movies like it (Mad Dog Coll, Machine Gun Kelly, King of the Roaring 20's). Has anyone seen them? Does TCM have the rights to them?
  15. I would say about 90% of all suggestions do not come true. I just wish TCM didn't show the same movies over and over again. It would be good if they added this one to their future schedule. Variety is the spice of life.
