1857-1859 -> All are absolutely charming. It is hard to find Down in the Delta. 

I remember seeing this one in theaters when it was first released. I haven't seen it anywhere else. But it's such a fine film.

I would have been able to identify 1853, 1854, 1856 and 1858.

And those are also the ones I've seen: Summer Stock, Sweet Bird of Youth, Hair and Awakenings.

I've never seen HAIR all the way through.

Awakenings reminds me of Charley.

Interesting point. Yes, they share some plot similarities and would make a good double feature on TCM.

I rented Hair on VHS from Blockbuster when I was in college. Apparently, the plot of the movie is radically different from the original stage show, so I don't really have any conception what it would have been like to see the show live in 1969, but I did enjoy the movie version.

Feel like I'm posting too soon, but it's likely the only chance I'll have today. So, don't read if you don't want the answers spoiled, although I have no idea for more than half of them, so I won't be giving that many away.

1874 is Here Comes the Groom. Yes.

1877 is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Yes.

1879 is The King of Comedy. Yes.

1880 is Deconstructing Harry. Yes.

So, I've seen at least four.

I saw April Love when TCM had a Pat Boone night a few years ago.

I was pretty sure 1876 was Freud. I thought that was Clift, and it has sort of a Freud-y look. It's not a movie I've seen, though. I don't know that TCM has ever shown it.

Okay, I've seen five.

Yes, I don't think FREUD's ever aired on TCM. It has a good score on the IMDb, so people have been watching it somehow.

There are certainly a number of more easily identifiable Lumet films out there! I don't know too many of these. But knowing what a great and diverse career he had, I should seek all of these out probably.

1882 is Fail Safe. Yes.

1883 is The Hill. No.

1888 is Deathtrap. Yes.

1889 is Garbo Talks. No.

Only two I'm sure I've seen.

1892 Well, it's one of the Garson-Pigeon movies. I think I've seen all of them. I will guess Blossoms in the Dust.

1900 is Cyrano de Bergerac. No.

Unsure about the others, and I'm about to load my car for a long drive. I will check back tonight. Love the moment captured in 1894!

This is one of the greatest performances by an actor that I've ever seen. Even though it's entirely in French, the Academy did nominate Gerard Depardieu here for an Oscar for this outstanding performance.

This movie is an adaptation of the late 19th century play by Edmond Rostand.

Cyrano de Bergerac was a real French writer in the 17th century whose works have been overshadowed by the play based on his life.

 So what you have here is a 20th century film adaptation of a 19th century French play based on the life of an eclectic, esoteric 17th century French writer.

What a truly fascinating film, whose fundamental story is well-known to English-speaking audiences.

Your enthusiastic comments make me want to watch this film.  

TCM should air it along with the Jose Ferrer version, and toss in ROXANNE for good measure. :)
