  1. You're in luck! They will show Pocketful of Miracles, It Happened One Night and Meet John Doe twice in December. The evening of January 19th TCM will be showing 5 films by Capra which I have listed below (all times EST) 8 pm - Mr. Smith Goes to Washington 10:30 pm - Mr. Deeds Goes to Town 12:45 am - You Can't Take it With You 3:00 am - It Happened One Night 5:00 am - Lady for a Day
  2. This is from the Wikipedia article on Selznick: I wonder if Disney still has rights and it's just a matter of these films being in House of Mouse Jailhouse. The link to the article from 1966 is dead, but I was able to track it down:
  3. The distribution rights for Lydia are currently held by the Criterion Collection. The TCM print aired began with Janus/Criterion logos. They have released works directed by Julien Duvivier in the past, with the most recent release being Panique on Blu-ray/DVD about 2 or 3 years ago. They even released a DVD box set of his films from the 1930s. I believe that Lydia will eventually be released, but I cannot say when exactly. Unfortunately, Criterion is known to take a long time to release movies even if they have a restored version. If the quality of the print shown was good, you migh
  4. They're even going to screen a new restoration at the TCM Film Festival in 2022. I am really glad the issue was cleared up. Perhaps it will be on air sometime next year maybe even while the festival is going on. Oddly enough, I became interested in Cagney after watching Man of a Thousand Faces. Then I watched the gangster movies. I'd imagine most people do the opposite.
  5. Criterion February titles were announced to day. Some great titles and a much needed upgrade of Written on the Wind.
  6. I expect this to be moved to the DVD review forum, but just to give everyone a heads up. Angels with Dirty Faces will be released by Warner Archive on December 7th. Hopefully, that means it will air on TCM sooner rather than later. In addition, Ivanhoe will be released on December 14th, but that one plays quite regularly. Other titles for December are unknown, but what a slate. I am so excited!
  7. Good news Angels with Dirty Faces is being released by Warner Archive Collection on December 7. Here's the Amazon link confirming it.
  8. I always liked Uncle Elliott's Parisian house in The Razor's Edge. Two beautiful people and a beautiful staircase. I also love the Villa Balbianello located in Lake Como which was featured in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Casino Royale. My friend had a very small wedding there in 2019 and it's a lovely spot.
  9. Yeah, the teal push in the restoration was distracting. It is the only reason why I never purchased Kino's 2017 release. Color grading done at L'Immagine Ritrovata are hit or miss. It's a shame since their restoration work on black and white is excellent. I have not had a chance to view the new color grading done for this year's 4K release. I am still undecided on upgrading yet again.
  10. If they make us say Kickero, let's movie and riot!😋
  11. I liked these modern movies: Girl with a Pearl Earring about Johannes Vermeer Frida about Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Films about art forgers: F For Fake How To Steal a Million
  12. Paramount is releasing A Place in the Sun on August 10th. Some new unconfirmed officially titles for Warner Archive in August. One Crazy Summer (08/10) Shadow of the Thin Man (08/17) In The Good Old Summertime (08/17)
  13. The real Frank Nitti took over the Chicago Outfit after Capone and later committed suicide to avoid prison. He was going to be indicted for an extortion scheme targeting Paramount, MGM, RKO, 20th Century Fox and others. I always thought it a nice touch that Paramount got some measure of fictional revenge in the end. 😂
  14. I think it is possible that the actor in the scene is not Richard Burton, but those lines could have been dubbed by him. If I just focus on the voice, I am 100% sure it is Richard Burton's very distinctive voice. Here's a video:
  15. Definitely try to check out the 2019 documentary Image Makers: The Adventures of America's Pioneer Cinematographers that TCM showed. It focuses primarily on the early cinematographers and how influential they were.
