  1. Betty, aka "Bets" or "Birdie". "Mad Men" is surely one of the great TV shows of the 21st century.
  2. Ernst Lubitsch's actual last film "Cluny Brown" is terrific, romantic comedy with Jennifer Jones and Charles Boyer. He was credited for directing "That Lady in Ermine" even though he died just a week into production and Otto Preminger finished it off.
  3. The acting awards are still limited to five people.
  4. My God, this is stupid. Also, if you don't like it, change the channel, or, maybe, fast forward.
  5. "The Other Side of the Wind" turned out to be a pretty darn good movie.
  6. "Do the Right Thing" is set during a summer heat wave, and the heat is important to the story.
  7. Ava Gardner was a bad actress, bad bad bad, but so good looking that it hardly mattered.
  8. I liked "Madadayo". It doesn't rank with Kurosawa's best but it's a charming little movie. I just watched Jacques Demy's last film, "Three Seats for the 26th". It's a very odd movie in which Yves Montand has a May-December romance with luscious young Mathilda May, has sex with her, then finds out the next day that oops, she's his long-lost daughter. That sounds like some kind of dark melodrama but in fact it's a light, bubbly, upbeat musical like most everything else he made. Right after the big reveal Mathilda May reunites Montand with his long-lost girlfriend (her mom), and all thre
  9. My goodness that's condescending. It's not a matter of the rest of America being too dumb to appreciate theater, it's a matter of the rest of America being literally unable to see the works that compete in the Tonys. Grammys, Emmys, Oscars--people have a chance to see that work. Unless there's a movie, the only people who will see "The Ferryman" are New Yorkers.
  10. Just cued up the famous Ronald Reagan version of "The Killers". He's quite excellent in this movie, makes one think that Warner Brothers screwed up by casting him as generic good guys.
  11. Of course it doesn't! But it seems that conservatives, who like to think that liberals are snowflakes, are enormously sensitive to anything at all that challenges their world view, be it a brief "outdated cultural depictions" warning, or a panel discussion about how "Gone With The Wind" is, you know, pretty darn racist. (It would be good if there were some sort of action to control all these horribly redundant threads that beat the same topic into the ground over and over and over and over again, especially threads like this one, which don't have anything to do with Turner Classic
  12. Sounds like a good show for WOR then! Just, you know, almost zero appeal for the rest of the country.
  13. Me neither. She was a pretty terrible actress--certainly a formidable screen presence, but seriously, a bad actress--and personally I've never found that bleached blonde style attractive. I liked her in "Red-Headed Woman" precisely because she didn't have that hair.
  14. Never understood why anybody cared about the Tonys. Only people who go on vacations to New York watch any of those shows. How is that ceremony on TV? Say what you will about the Oscars but it's at least possible for people to watch most of the movies nominated.
