Funniest TCM One Line Film Descriptions You've Read Lately.


Recommended Posts

I was checking through the schedule and found a great one-line description for an upcoming film:  "Nazi agents use headless ghost as a front."  

Can you imagine the writers/producers pitching this idea to a studio head????  I know there must be many, many more classic TCM film descriptions . . .

Sorry that it doesn't fit your category....but the first thing that popped into my mind was 1967's TV Guide's description of STAR TREK the original series episode "Amok Time"

"Spock gets the urge to mate and attacks Capt. Kirk"

Wow, it looks like Susan Vance (in Bringing Up Baby) was right after all!

"The love impulse in man very frequently reveals itself in terms of conflict."

I laughed out loud.  Time to "expand" the category!

And apparently board readers need Auto-Correct to protect them from verboten words like b-l-a-c-k-i-e (which I assume was originally a reference to Boston B-l-a-c-k-i-e).

Yep. I never know what innocent name or word is going to get censored next.  In this case Bad Luck B------ is a cat.

The New York Times television guide used to have this description whenever Sister Kenny was being shown:

"We prefer Sister Mame."

 

As do we all . . .

This is why I just use;  Chester Morris serial.    I enjoy this serial,  especially the first film, since it also stars Rochelle Hudson.

Now all we need to do is re-program AutoCorrect so it does that instead.  🙂
