Noirs & Gangster movies coming up on FMC


Recommended Posts

VICKI isn't bad at all, even if you're familiar with the original, I WAKE UP SCREAMING. Richard Boone is quite acceptable in the Laird Cregar role and Aaron Spelling is good enough in the Elisha Cook part that one wishes he stayed with acting rather than going into production.No doubt, with that puss he would have been typecast however.

 

The big problem is Elliott Reid in the Victor Mature role. Boone calls him "pretty boy" but he doesn't even have that much going for him and certainly not Mature's virility.

> All right already with FALLEN ANGEL. When is the next time FMC is airing WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS?

 

I'm going to try to look into that, but it may not be a quick thing. The FMC website is great for looking up the day's schedule and maybe a few days ahead.

 

But if you're trying to use the search function to figure out if a movie is coming up, well, it doesn't seem to work for some reason.

Did you get around to it? :D

 

Just thought I'd mention, someone mentioned in the other thread that the DVD of it is supposed to have a _very_ good audio commentary.
