  1. spence--Director Otto Preminger was supposed to have done LSD with Timothy Leary before Preminger filmed "Skidoo" (1968).
  2. "Krakatoa, East of Java" (1969)--Starring Maximilian Schell, Diane Baker, Brian Keith, and Sal Mineo. This is the only disaster movie I can think of that was made in Cinerama. Entertaining movie follows the disaster movie formula (take five or more characters with their own personal problems, introduce the viewer to them, set them all heading toward certain disaster, throw in plenty of Oscar nominated/winning special effects, mix well, and see who the script says survives). The plot: On 1883 Krakatoa, two boys are looking through homemade telescopes at a smoking volcano. A nun rings a sc
  3. Lover Come Back Next--Plymouth Adventure
  4. Sunday, Nov. 5th; all times E.S.T.: 8:00 p.m. "Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant Garde Film 1894-1941" (2006)--Full title is in the brief TCM article on the film. This film includes 16 short films or sequences, including a sequence from 1941's "Peer Gynt" starring a teenage Charlton Heston, "Ballet Mecanique" (1923) with a score by George Antheil, and more. 10:45 p.m. "Unseen Cinema 2: The Mechanized Eye" (2011)--More short films, including one by Orson Welles. Check TCM's article for more about this film.
  5. "She" (1911)--Starring Marguerite Snow and James Cruze. This version of the film includes a prologue, which takes up half the running time of 25 minutes. She Who Must Be Obeyed (Snow) meets and falls in love with Kallikrates (Cruze). He refuses her advances, she kills him, then mourns him. A descendent of his, Leo Vincey (Cruze) grows up in England. When he turns 25, he is sent to Africa to kill She. After falling in love with Leo, she shows him the body of Kallikrates, which She's preserved for 2000 years; She then makes it disappear. Then She takes one too many baths in The Flame.,
  6. Saturday, Nov. 4th/5th; all times E.S.T.: 12:00 p.m. "Trooper Hook" (1957)--Underrated Joel McCrea/Barbara Stanwyck western deals with some of the same themes as "The Searchers" (1956). 2:00 a.m. "Deadly Friend" (1986)--The first of a Wes Craven double feature, film is definitely worth a watch. 3:45 a.m. "Swamp Thing" (1982)--Another recommendation for this movie.
  7. Friday, Nov. 3rd/4th; 1970's thrillers. All times E.S.T.: 10:15 p.m. "The Wilby Conspiracy" (1975)--Interesting looking anti-apartheid South African thriller starring Sidney Poitier, Michael Caine, and Nicol Williamson. 2:00 a.m. "Coma" (1978)--Good Michael Crichton thriller with Genevieve Bujold, Michael Douglas, Richard Widmark, and Elizabeth Ashley.
  8. Ruby Gentry Next--Curse of the Werewolf (1961)
  9. sewhite2000--Guessing from the threads' title, and remembering several posters were upset that they missed TCM's airing of this movie, 1959's "The Best of Everything"?
  10. I Was A Male War Bride Next--The Last Voyage
  11. "The Horror of Frankenstein" (1970)--Starring Ralph Bates, Kate O'Mara, and Veronica Carlson. Directed, written, and produced by Jimmy Sangster. Lunatic Hammer remake of 1957's "The Curse of Frankenstein" has crazed or just plain sloppy inconsistencies. It may have been intended as parody, but I was mostly laughing at the film instead of with it. As the film opens, Victor Frankenstein (Bates) is in medical school in 19th century Austria. After he makes a fool out of a professor and class ends, a classmate asks him "What's hypochondria?" A female classmate volunteers to help him in ana
