  1. Ben Vereen was always a very talented man, but movies were never his forte.  Aside from “Funny Lady,” the only other movie I remember him in is Bob Fosse’s “All That Jazz.”  I’m not sure TCM has ever shown that film.  Come to think of it, I think he was one of the dancers in Fosse’s “Sweet Charity.”  It’s too bad he didn’t get to transfer his stage performance as Judas when it came time to do a movie version of “Jesus Christ Superstar.”

  2. Here’s some long (and strange) titles from Italian director Lina Wertmuller:

    ”Too Much Romance...It’s Time for Stuffed Peppers”

    ”The Blue Collar Worker and the Hairdresser in a Whirl of Sex and Politics”

    ”Summer Night with Greek Profile, Almond Eyes and Scent of Basil”

    ”A Joke of Destiny, Lying in Wait Around the Corner Like a Bandit”

    Plus, the original title of her 1974 hit “Swept Away” was “Swept Away by an Unusual Destiny in the Blue Sea of August”

  3. Hi.  I’m new around here—well, not new to reading all the interesting reviews and comments, but new to posting myself.  This seemed like a good topic to jump into, as I know we all like giving our opinions on things we think are overrated (a word I don’t like and try not to use, as it usually just means “a movie most people like but you happen not to”).

    Anyway, a classic that I really dislike is “How Green was My Valley,” and believe me I’ve watched 3 or 4 times, hoping that this time I will finally understand what is supposed to be so great about it.  The funny thing is, it’s a type of movie I generally like very much.  I love period dramas and films about families, and I generally like most John Ford films.  But, this one just leaves me cold; it starts out OK, but after about 30 minutes my eyes gradually start to glaze over.
