TCM Premieres

Recommended Posts

I didn't think I'd seen her full breasts bared. From what I've read, the American version of the movie cut the 1-second shot - but left it in for Europe. So, maybe the injunction applied only to America.

 

 

Yeah, I think the people on Amazon who are complaining about the topless scene being cut from the DVD release of THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT are mistakenly thinking they saw the scene in the movie when in fact they actually saw the photos that were leaked.

"Flavorful account of public and private life of a matador, based on Tom Lea book. Film admirably captures atmosphere of bullfighting. Some prints now available run 114m., with bullfight footage originally deemed too gruesome for U.S. audiences."

Five comic tales of love showcase the growing Czechoslovakian film industry.

Based on stories by the legendary writer Bohumil Hrabal, the shorts range from the surreally chilling to the caustically observant to the casually romantic, but all have a cutting, wily view of the world"

Report on the Party and the Guests, A (1966)

Picnickers are held captive by a sadist and his gang.

Dir: Jan Nemec Cast:  Ivan Vyskocil , Jan Klusák , Jirí Nemec .

 

 

This is a very important movie.

 

I hope that none are dissuaded from watching it because of the description provided. That description is wrong on many levels.

 

It is a captivating look at basic human nature and how desires to be nice and good lead to imprisonment by liberal leaders.

Unfortunately, TCM is not showing NIGHT MOVES in widescreen. So it will probably be a pan-and-scan version.

Doesn't surprise me.  Hackman is very tall making it all the more difficult to frame a shot and not get the boom in the way.  This is a problem you rarely see nowadays as they just use CGI to remove it.

During a rough cut of Ridley Scott's Kingdom of Heaven I could see a steady-cam operator standing on the parapet right beside Orlando Bloom.  Then in the final edit they covered the cameraman with some computerized people.

There is also theatrical framing and television framing.  Television framing often provided more room at the top and bottom of the frame so if you weren't taking that into account - presto - there it is the boom on tv but not when shown theatrically.

There was also an indoor scene where Hackman had bad perspiration stains. You'd think they could've had a spare shirt handy for him to wear. No a/c??

I didn't watch the entire movie (it didn't interest me), but I was happy to see that TCM did show it in widescreen format. 

I guess they erred on the side of caution when they posted the information on the schedule.

Apparently they didn't know if the print was widescreen or not. 

They did the same thing with SILKWOOD.

Disaster follows a man's discovery that he has a romantic rival.

220px-TooMuchJohnson.jpg

 

"....a 1938 American silent comedy film written and directed by Orson Welles. The film was made three years before Welles directed Citizen Kane, but it was never publicly screened. The film was shot to be integrated into Welles's Mercury Theatre stage presentation of William Gillette's 1894 comedy, but the motion picture sequences could not be shown due to the absence of projection facilities at the venue, the Stony Creek Theatre in Connecticut. The resulting plot confusion contributed to the stage production's failure.

The film was believed to be lost, but in 2008 a print was discovered in a warehouse in Pordenone, Italy.[1][2] The film premiered Wednesday, October 9, 2013, at the Pordenone Silent Film Festival.[2] In 2014 the film was made available online by the National Film Preservation Foundation.[3]"

Good to know. But are you sure they didn't crop the original film then stretch it to make it seem like widescreen?

No, because it was letterboxed on the SD channel.
