Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1993)

Ooh, that looks like a winner. Never heard of it, but it sure looks like a curio for John Hurt! I've seen a few (too few) of those, but have heard of most of them. I don't even remember him in Midnight Express, but it's been a while since I saw it, and I doubt I was converted to him at the time.

One movie of his I've been interested in seeing, based on a recommendation, is The Naked Civil Servant (1975), which I guess was one of those aforementioned TV roles. I heard good things about his performance, (now that I've researched that curio you listed it makes me wonder if this became a trend-setter for him!)

Hurt received his first Oscar nomination for Midnight Express, playing a sickly, drug-addicted fellow prisoner.

I've never seen The Naked Civil Servant, although I've heard many good things about it. Hurt played Quentin Crisp again in the feature film An Englishman in New York in 2009.

Oh great, now I'll have to watch it again. 😐 I didn't enjoy it very much and didn't make a strong effort to retain it. It was miserable to the point of bemusing.

How will you attend the festival and watch the films on the same day ?

Well I do own every film scheduled, I could catch up. The festival is in the afternoon, like 4-8.

That's convenient. My uncle also has most Flynn movies in his collection.

Nothing too exciting here, but I will look forward to the Days of:   Melvyn Douglas, Lena Horne, Ann Sothern, Brian Donlevy, Errol Flynn, Leila Hyams and Mary Astor.  At least we've dodged the semi-annual SUTS "bullet" of John Wayne, Judy Garland and Katharine Hepburn this time!

Yes, I was expecting to see Kate again. But instead we are getting the other Hepburn (Audrey).

Summer Under the Stars:  I am all for the character actors that a lot of posts represent.  If I could have my wish I would spend a day and a night with James Gleason.  He is the one of my most enjoyed character actors and I'll watch "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" any day of the week, and as added bonus you'll get Claude Raines and Edward Everett Horton.

You'd probably enjoy the Higgins Family comedies that James Gleason made at Republic with his wife and son.

I'd forgotten she was even in that. Haven't seen it in years.

It's a Paramount classic, from Hal Wallis. Very good. But it's really a showcase for Geraldine Page.

Hey, everyone, I've been out of town for six days and didn't travel with my lap top, thought I'd see if I could live without it, so I haven't posted during that time. But I did check in on the TCM Message Boards on my phone (which doesn't contain my login information, so all I could do was read other people's posts), and it occurred to me that I had made a list of all the "out of library" films that were airing during SUTS on another thread. I guess there have been two different threads about the exact same topic - TCM September programming - that have never been combined. But as I looked at the Moreno schedule on THIS thread, I started getting an incredibly strong deja vu, and I started thinking was there a Moreno schedule already set up for some other time that got moved to SUTS, because I've definitely seen this schedule before. It took some doing, because the other September/SUTS thread had fallen to Page Four, but when I finally found it, I realized the SCHEDULE HAD ALREADY CHANGED when I made my list of "out of library films" on May 10! I didn't realize it at the time while I was plowing through the lists of films. But if a Natalie Wood schedule was ever posted online, it was already gone, replaced by Rita Moreno by May 10. Thought inquiring minds might want to know.
