Zanuck hits: Where are they?

Recommended Posts

I have been using several different sources to cross-reference films I do not have in my own collection. If not for TCM, we would not have access to many that are not yet commercially available.

 

I am frustrated that I have not seen any of these Zanuck-produced titles on FMC. Maybe they aired once, long ago, but it was before I had the channel. But mostly it is because these films are B-films, or were not huge money-makers like PORKYS!

 

Please, let us see:

Old AMC used to air BANJO ON MY KNEE about once or twice a year, back in the '80s and early '90s. I haven't seen it since then.

 

When I had the Fox channel a few years ago, they used to air ALI BABA GOES TO TOWN. It's a great film. Eddie Cantor tries to teach the concept of "Democracy" to Arabs in Bagdad. They never heard of it.

I think FMC did air A ROYAL SCANDAL last year starring Tallulah Bankhead, but I missed it.

 

The one I really want to see is THE EVE OF ST. MARK, a religious-themed war film. It's based on a hit stage play.

 

It would also be fun to see the Smith Ballew westerns that he did at Fox in the late 30s. Folks don't even know who he is today!

If I had my choice of one movie for TCM to broadcast, it would be Zanuck's production of The Egyptian, the best ever epic (in my humble opinion). Directed by Michael Curtiz. Music by both Bernard Herrmann and Alfred Newman!

I guess THE FIREBALL was auctioned off to Warners and they have it now as part of their Warners Archive set of DVD releases.

 

A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN and THE STORY OF ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL are extremely rare and hard to come by...I think A G BELL was only ever sold on VHS.

 

BIGGER THAN LIFE and THIEVES HIGHWAY have been restored by Criterion, which makes me wonder if they have fallen into the **** domain...?

Which is too bad, he was also a good vocalist found on many excellent jazz and dance band recordings of the late 20s and early 30s.

 

TCM recently ran A CONNECTICUT YANKEE and I recorded A BELL FOR ADANO off of FMX a couple of years ago, but I don't recall seeing it recently. AMC used to run the Chan Fox films in the 80s. I have the Chan films on DVD in three boxed sets from Fox Home Video, but I don't believe FMX has ever shown them. FMX used to show RAMONA (1936) back in the late 90s, but I haven't seen it scheduled in a long time. I love to get a good copy of it some day.

RAMONA was on FMC either the end of 2010 or beginning of 2011, not long ago and I did record it.

 

I would love to see BELL FOR ADANO.

 

The Chan films and Moto films seem to be a thorny subject for civil rights groups...however, they are out on DVD...just not screened much on cable television.

 

Another movie-star/vocalist that people don't know about today is Abbe Lane. I don't think she was a Fox star. She sort of free-lanced. She was married to Xavier Cugat and was very much a star in her own right in the 50s and 60s. She claimed she was 'too sexy for Italy' when she went to Europe to make films there after her Hollywood career waned. LOL

Which really is too bad. I found both series to be great fun to watch. Until the Moto films came out on DVD, I had not seen them before and I am glad that they were at least they were made available and that Fox even spent some time and effort to clean up the prints.

Whiners all.

 

I can't stand to hear them whining. They are whining for dollars.

 

Gosh, I guess we need to do away with all Abbott and Costello films since they make my own ethnic group look like idiots. Oh, and the Three Stooges too. Oh, and Martin and Lewis, oh and what about the Marx Brothers?

These show regularly on FMC, or HBO Signature or MoreMax. TSOAGB has been on three times in the last three weeks on HBO Signature, including a couple of nights ago.

Ramona (the 1936 version with Loretta Young and Don Ameche) was on FMC about 3-4 weeks ago.

*A Tree Grows in Brooklyn* was on TCM about two years ago.

 

Some of the Chans and Mr. Motos have been broadcast a few times but the last time they appeared on the schedule with many titles was in the summer of 2008 and the *Race and Hollywood: Asian American Images on Film* series.

TCM is showing ALI BABA GOES TO TOWN next month as part of the Race & Hollywood: Arab Images on Film festival. July 14 is Arabs as a Subject of Ridicule night; ABGTT shares the evening with ROAD TO MOROCCO, ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE MUMMY and THE SAD SACK, along with the Stooges short MUMMY'S DUMMIES and the cartoons POPEYE THE SAILOR MEETS ALI BABA AND THE FORTY THIEVES, SAHARA HARE, LITTLE BEAU PORKY and HARE-ABIAN NIGHTS, as well as the Charley Chase short ARABIAN TIGHTS. I believe these are the first cartoons TCM has shown since '08 or so.

*A Tree Grows In Brooklyn* was on the CBC last year. Peggy Ann Gardner was on Batman

in the episode Ring Around The Riddler. She was also in Robert Altman's A Wedding which was just on Movieplex, another good comercial free channel, (their films are mostly more recient.)

***THE LADY PAYS OFF*** If this is the Linda Darnell movie of 1951, she made in on loan to Universal-it's not a 20th Century Fox movie)

***LOVE AND KISSES*** The title is actually LOVE AND HISSES (1937)

***YOU'RE A SWEETHEART (if this is the 1937 Alice Faye movie, she made in on loan to Universal)

 

i'm not familiar enough with the Charlie Chan/Mr. Moto series, so I can't opine on those.

A number of others were shown on FMC in the last 3-5 years (probably some on my list were) but I don't have the time to go into that right now.

 

*But mostly it is because these films are B-films, or were not huge money-makers like PORKYS!*

 

I disagree. A random look at this list shows approximately half were A-films, and most were moneymakers in their day (which was a lot older than Porkys . . . being mostly from the 30s-50s)
