Sports movies last night


Recommended Posts

*"I'm a big sports fan, but did we really need an entire night of sports movies?"* - finance

 

Just in case you didn't know, it was Guest Programmer Night with the evening's films selected by Rich Eisen of the NFL Network. Though I wish he would have been a bit more adventurous with his selections. (Caddyshack? Meh. The Bobby Jones golf lesson shorts? Wow.)

 

If anyone was watching *Hooiers*, was there anything "awkward" said in the intro to the film about Dennis Hopper who passed away this weekend? I hope not.

Has anyone besides me ever seen Dreamer with Tim Matheson and Jack Warden? I think that's the only bowling film ever made, with good reason.

They did not "spare" their remarks. Actually, it was just a pleasant little film, as I recall, which I saw on cable, and then it disappeared into the netherworld.

Should there also not be an entire night of political movies because there is CNN? Or movies about cooks because there is a cooking channel? Seems since Cousteau, that we are now getting tighter on even which themes fans will allow TCM to show. Personally, I think that they shouldn't show any more movies about New York because who people who live there can just step outside and see it any day of the week. ; )

There's *Kingpin*, which if memory serves is the Woody Harrelson movie other posters have referenced.

 

The fun late-50s movie [*Man in the Vault*|http://justacineast.blogspot.com/2008/07/those-1950s-crime-movies.html] in which William Campbell plays Tommy Dancer (gotta love the name!), a locksmith who tries to double cross some mobsters, has its finale in a darkened bowling alley.

 

It's also got a young Anita Ekberg, but poor William Campbell looks like Tony Curtis on a really bad hair day:
