    I was a big fan, especially when I was a kid. Spartacus and Paths of Glory are still two of my favorite films, and I've enjoyed many of his others, as well. I'm looking at others like Ace in the HoleDetective Story20,000 Leagues Under the SeaLust for LifeThe VikingsSeven Days in MayGunfight at the OK CorralOut of the Past, and Saturn 3 sitting on my movie shelves. I also liked his books. At 103, I knew this was coming, but it's still a sad passing. He was the last of the major male classic-era stars, and his passing is truly the closing of a chapter in American cinema.



    It feels strange,almost eerie,tuesday I was thinking of him and of Olivia De Havilland,wondering who will live longer and bang1 got my answer today....like you Larry, he was one of my first movie fave,myuncle brought me to Spartacus and The Vikings,circa 1963,on separate viewings at the neighborhood 8th reissue theatre,i still watch these movies whenever they play,my uncle had great taste I also saw 7th Voyage of Sinbad there. I have read several of his books Ragman's Son is a great one-know it by heart,i have seen all his films except 2 tv films and I asked TCM  to show Walls of Jericho from 1948(Fox),the REAL end of an era, R.I.P. Issur

  6. Paulette Goddard was a natural blonde,she dyed her hair to have a different look.She had a double mastectomy in 1975,a very heavy surgery then,she went into depression most of the time till the end of her life,only seen by her therapist and her nurse,her driver and her maid.She survived her breast cancer but her emphyseme killed her.A sad ending.

  7. LE BRUIT DES GLACONS by Bertrand Blier aka The Clink of ice.2010.Jean Dujardin,Anne Alvaro-she won Cesar for best supporting actress for her role.Very good original comedy.An alcoholic & separated  writer get his life upside down when a man knock on his door,telling him he is his cancer.

    Dismantling Obama's legacy, such as it was, was certainly a priority for Trump, as has been stated by many people on many occasions. Yes, that also aligns with what a lot of his base wanted, as well as the hard-right factions in Israel, but sticking it to Obama has always been one of Trump's driving passions.

    PBS and Frontline aired an excellent two-part documentary recently entitled America's Great Divide that clearly illustrates the above. Highly recommended viewing, if more than a bit long.

    i watched it about a week ago, Frontline is always good

  9. I personally think the Essentials should be put to a well deserved rest for several years.The last season is one too many for me.TCM should add more documentaries related to classic stars and subjects. A Saturday night with a scholar who can talk about movies like Jeanine Basinger per example to present a documentary would be excellent.As an example I watched a fantastic documentary on the 1932 trip to Bali by Charlie Chaplin and his brother Sydney on French tv,I' am sure an English version is or would be available or what about the 90 minutes documentary on the famous Chasen restaurant in Hollywood it opened in 1936.I just watched an 8 hour/8 episode documentary-2019- on French producers ok it is not for everybody- TCM imports will come to the rescue.But there many documentaries available,it would not hurt TCM to reruns docs on Zanuck,Goldwyn etc at the same time it would do something similar to the essentials but it could be interesting to everybody imo.

    The Verdict is very good. Many people hold Prince of the City in high regard, as well.

    Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is one of the better final films from a major director.

    Totally agree with you,i have seen 34 films by Sidney Lumet-missing some-including Prince of the City one the 2 or3 movies I ever walk out! all I remember is it was very boring on the big screen,i will have to see it again to be fair-as I am sure it is good.I watched The Group last week the length worried me bit but  it went very well,i 'discovered'Joan Hackett in the movie,her part should have been improved she was a beautiful woman and a talented actress,i was surprised she died at only 49...I think Hibi did not care about the Hartman part I feel the same  also I almost fast forwarded it!

    Marriage Story (2019) Seemed like non stop screaming that drags on way too long you want to kill them all by the time it's over.  I lost interest.   How did it end? Anybody care?

    Marriage Story Poster

    i heard it should be titled Divorce Story...

  12. I saw at their peak TRex on their Slider Tour their first headlining one on sept 8 1972!  Montreal was the kick off date and the hall was the Pierrefonds Arena-nobody ever held a concert there,the promoter the big one here chose a place nobody knew! A small arena with atrocious sound!The support act for the tour was the then unknown Doobie Bros inducted this year also! This was the unique show ever held there and the only time T.Rex played here.The Tour lasted 2 months it was their last as headliners in America.TRex was big  everywhere,Touring Japan,Australlia etc,Marc Bolan is a star forever in Japan like Deep Purple.American success is important but should not be a criteria to be inducted otherwise 3 Dog Night is a must...

    T. Rex was very big in the UK, as influential in their time as David Bowie and Roxy Music. They had 11 top-ten singles from 1970 to 1973, as well as 4 top-5 albums, including 1971's Electric Warrior, which went to #1.

    However, in the US, their albums never went higher than #17, and "Get It On (Bang a Gong)" was their only top ten single here, reaching #10 in '71. 

    As I stated in my previous comment on them, I think T. Rex should have been inducted a long time ago. They had a big impact on the rock acts that came out after, especially the more theatrical rock of the 1980's. And Marc Bolan was a textbook example of a Rock Star. His death in '77 at age 29 resulted in a smaller catalog of songs than some of his contemporaries, but he's almost always listed as one of the best British rock performers of the 1970's. Here are a few other songs I like by them:

  13. AU BONHEUR DES DAMES 1943 AKA SHOP GIRLS OFPARIS by André Cayatte based on the book by Emile Zola.

    Michel Simon,Suzy Prim and with Jean Tissier giving a great supporting performance,Simon as usual is great.Set in late 19th century Paris the battle of a small store owner against a bigger one developing into a huge one,similar to Harrods-well the store look like it,but it was another name like Bon Marché.Anyway a very good film with a story line not unfamiliar since the last century.8/10

    I've heard that kind of thing before, but as a former smoker, I can't fathom how that would even be possible. Even at my heaviest smoking, I don't think I ever had more than 2 packs in a day.

    I'am exactly like you. David Bowie was smoking 4 packs of Gitanes a day-they are strong French cigs- till his early to mid fifties,i could not believe it but it was very true

  15. UN MILLIARD DANS UN BILLARD 1965  by Nicolas Gessner aka Diamonds are brittle

    Jean Seberg Elsa Martinelli Claude Rich.Average romantic comedy mixed with a major robbery.Main feature of the film is the stunning beauty of Jean Seberg -she does all her lines in French-Martinelli was dubbed. 6.5/10 for the film 9 for Jean Seberg's beauty.
