  1. Lead me not into temptation...I already know where to find it. And I've already invested in an all-region Blu-Ray player. It sounds like the extras include the elements that give that someone at WB that panic attack.
  2. https://www.moviecollectoroh.com/nightly/sched-new.htm The SUTS titles are beginning to show up, but there are considerable gaps as I post this.
  3. Innnnnteresting. Apparently someone much higher up at WB categorically refuses to allow a release of the director's cut of The Devils. So of course I want to see that cut. Am I the only person of my generation who has read the book on which it's based?
  4. Could you be thinking of Housewife (1934)? In this movie Dvorak pours herself and her husband (George Brent) a few and urges him to go into business for himself.
  5. To each their own, but I found it a little TOO earnest, At least Billy the Kid Versus Dracula was entertaining in a cheesy way.
  6. Did anyone here see Genius (2016) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1703957/)? It's about Max Perkins, who at Scribner's edited Look Homeward, Angel. (I didn't see it because I am allergic to modern docupics made by white males to celebrate the achievements of dead white males. Also, obvious Oscar bait is obvious.) It features Colin Firth as Perkins, Jude Law as Wolfe, Guy Pierce as Fitzgerald, and Dominic West as Hemingway, to which I respond "Just who is handing out green cards willy-nilly?"
  7. Did no one else here watch THE KISS BEFORE THE MIRROR (1933, on TCM On Demand through 5/31)? A man (Paul Lukas) follows the wife (Gloria Stuart) he suspects is having an affair, and guns her down in another man's bedroom. His lawyer (Frank Morgan), intending to prepare a defense of insanity, rather than premeditated murder, meditates a little too deeply on the vanities and behaviors of women with lovers. Specifically, his own wife's (Nancy Carroll) conduct and habits. Directed by James Whale and cinematography by Karl Freund. It's not horror as the genre is normally understood. Unles
  8. Have you heard of intimacy coordinators (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intimacy_coordinator)? Their job is to support the performers and crew, to negotiate the terms of intimate scenes, and make it possible for a performer to say no if the agreed-upon boundaries are crossed.
  9. MoMA just made a 4K scan of Quick Millions (1931), so if the rights could be sorted out that would be perfect programming. And I wish TCM could get Disorderly Conduct (1932)--after seeing that at Capitolfest I want to show it to noir aficionados.
  10. Lots of gaps in the schedule. On another board I saw that one of the monthly themes (TCM Spotlight?) would be neo-noir, presented by Eddie M. and Ben M. 07/03/2021 3:45 AM Fragment of Seeking (1946) 3:45 AM Picnic (1949) 3:45 AM On the Edge (1949) 3:45 AM The Assignation (1953) 3:45 AM The Wormwood Star (1956) 3:45 AM Usher (2000) All directed by Curtis Harrington, probably programmed by TCM Underground. Usher is the umpteenth adaptation of Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher," judging from the synopsis. 07/12/2021 12:45 AM So This
  11. Are you sure? What I'd heard about the film made it sound like misery porn.
  12. Dix has a terrible case of Silent Film Star Syndrome in this movie. But he's quite good in comedies from this period, and much improved in THE CONQUERORS (1932).
