  1. The 1940 Way of All Flesh has a tear-jerker of an ending involving Akim Tamiroff's character.
  2. THE WAY OF ALL FLESH (1940) is a good Paramount that I don't think made the rounds of AMC, TNT, or others that showed Universal/Paramount films in the VCR era. My copy is from Loving the Classics and is fairly rough but watchable.
  3. THE STORY OF TEMPLE DRAKE is controlled by Fox, which bought it and remade it under the original novel title SANCTUARY in 1961. IIRC from TCM's broadcast of it, the Fox logo comes up at the end of the film. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024617/companycredits?ref_=tt_ql_dt_4
  4. End of the Game has aired many times on the Fox Movie Channel.
  5. For what it's worth, Robert Stack's "Airplane!" line about "top man, big cheese" sort of mimics one of his lines from "The High and the Mighty," only he didn't say "big cheese" in that one.
  6. I can't remember, but I'd say the "u" was probably left out because the captioning was likely done by an American with poor understanding of British speakers and spelling style.
  7. The worst captioning I've ever seen was on a TCM broadcast of Brighton Rock a few years ago. I turned the captions on hoping they would help me on some hard-to-understand British accents, but no sale. I actually understood what a lot of the British actors were saying, but the captions were atrociously bad, nowhere close to what the actors were saying. Like your example, there was one instance in Brighton Rock where the caption said "unintelligible," but I could understand perfectly what was said.
  8. Yes, it was the same washed-out print with the MCA/Universal Pay TV opening logo.
  9. Beth Howland of "Alice" TV fame died Dec. 31, but her death was just announced Tuesday, according to her wishes. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/25/arts/television/beth-howland-accident-prone-waitress-from-the-sitcom-alice-dies-at-74.html?_r=1
  10. Isn't the killer in And Then There Were None (1945) playing pool when he's revealed at the end of the movie?
  11. I don't think TCM has shown this film since c. 1999-2001, and that showing was a full-screen, edited-for-content version. The uncut version is available on DVD from the Warner Archive, and that looks to be the version TCM is showing this time.
  12. I just recently watched the MST3K version of The Creeping Terror, which has a ton of narration, more than any film I've ever seen. I'm more partial to the narration of Lou Marcelle in Casablanca.
  13. I also recommend Who'll Stop the Rain. Another good Tuesday Weld appearance is her Naked City episode with Rip Torn: "A Case Study of Two Savages."
  14. I just watched her in Undercover With the K K K, a 1979 TV movie.
  15. That would be "Thanatos Palace Hotel" from The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.
