  1. Is this the shot in question? From end of movie on You Tube.
  2. Indeed. From last night I'm still hearing "I'm a Vagabond on the Streets of Love" as sung by Dermot Mulroney from The Thing Called Love. It's unpleasant and needs to stop.
  3. Still no pics or videos of the view that I can find. Very odd.
  4. I just learned yesterday that a loved one who's "fully vaccinated" in good health and only 45 has Covid.
  5. Thunder Rock, 1942 Director Roy Boulting Starring Michael Redgrave, James Mason in supporting role 112 minutes A lighthouse full of ghosts and the perils of fascism.. Very strange yet interesting film with Michael Redgrave as Charleston, a remote lighthouse keeper on Lake Michigan during WWII. When his employers become concerned that he hasn't cashed a paycheck in 5 months, they send Mason in his seaplane to investigate. Redgrave is fine except for the hallucinations. A group of immigrants whose ship went down 90 years before have been keeping him company.
  6. Caught 1949 Director: Max Opuls (or Ophüls) Starring Robert Ryan, James Mason, Barbara Bel Geddes Imdb designates this as film-noir, but I'm not sure why. It's not really important, but it's curious. Sometimes I think they just look at the cast or director and maybe the year - like Robert Ryan, 1949, must be noir. In my opinion it's not, but is quite good regardless. I think two major points together would disqualify it. One, there's no crime. Just wishing someone dead doesn't count. Failure to render aid in a timely manner could probably qualify, but it's a stretch. Two, it has a ha
  7. Yeah, the psychology was sketchy. First time William Holden actually annoyed me in a film, but he was young and still learning his craft I suppose. My favorite part was Eddie saying he didn't like it.
  8. Did anyone bring a camera? I can't find any pictures or video just showing what they saw out of the window. I can see what looks like cloud covering but not much detail. Even if I had the money I would wait until any bugs could be worked out. I'd certainly want more time up there. 10 minutes includes the most dangerous and butt-puckering parts of lift-off and reentry but little time to enjoy the view. I also wonder if they were fitted with space diapers.
  9. Haven't seen it, but Eddie confirmed that it was. Strange doing a remake after only 9 years, and have a feeling the original was better. I was a little disappointed but seldom care for films based on plays. Too talky and claustrophobic. Holden was "handsome as all get-out" but I found his performance lacking in depth and agree that he was probably miscast. Funny even the host saying he didn't like the movie. If this was 'curated' I'd hate to see the rejects. 😄 On the other hand, I hadn't seen it before so did enjoy something new at least.
  10. Bigger Than Life, 1956 1 hr. 35 min. Directed by Nicholas Ray Produced by James Mason Written by Cyril Hume, Richard Maibaum, but script was entirely re-worked by Ray and Mason. Starring James Mason, Walter Matthau, Barbara Rush Synopsis: A seriously ill schoolteacher becomes dependent on a "miracle" drug that begins to affect his sanity. Tagline: Portrait of a man with a habit! Contains spoilers. This takes the prize for being the weirdest movie in Mason's filmography, if not Ray's. That's not a negative necessarily, and I looked forward to it. Upon r
  11. Tonight at 10:30 pm Pacific, 1:30 am EST "A psychologist tries to analyze the criminal who's taken him hostage." I'll be watching.☺️
  12. If it's any consolation I don't think TCM aired a restored version. A few artifacts in dark scenes especially.
  13. Something that drives me crazy is when someone is fighting for their life and their companion just stands there frozen or cowering in a corner. I'm thinking "You know, the odds of surviving this would increase dramatically if only you'd help! If you don't want to get too close, pick up that shovel and give him a good whack, for god's sake!" James Mason, Joan Bennett in The Reckless Moment
  14. The ultimate E ticket ride. The first heart attack in space may slow ticket sales.
  15. .. 5 Fingers, 1952 1 hr. 42 min. Directed by Joe Mankiewicz Screenplay by Michael Wilson Music by Bernard Hermann Starring James Mason, Michael Rennie, Danielle Darrieux This is a first-rate spy thriller that I never heard of. A critical and commercial success, it was nominated for two Oscars, Best Director and Best Screenplay. Based on a true story and filmed on location where it took place. Sheridan Morley, in his James Mason biography says "Here James was able to give one of his most polished and expertly suave performances, much helped by a Joe Mankiewicz pro
