8:00 PM (ET)
C - 90 m
 
horror

Synopsis: A mysterious killer stalks a design house's models.
DirMario Bava CastEva Bartok , Cameron Mitchell , Thomas Reiner .

 

"Bava not only merged striking beauty -- of sets, actors, and Technicolor -- with harrowing sadism, but he imbued the color with meaning and implicated the audience in the violence, choosing not to provide sympathetic characters and portraying the masked killer as more of a "force" than a person."

Mr. 6 - thanks for the heads up on tonight's schedule.  I couldn't quite figure out what the theme was.  Your link to the article did not work for me, so here is -

 

********************************************************************************************************

"To Tell the Truth - Mondays & Wednesdays in November
Documentaries have been an important part of moviemaking since the silent-film era and continue today as one of the most powerful means of spreading information and expressing viewpoints. We are proud to present a TCM Spotlight that looks at the influential history of non-fiction films, showcasing more than five dozen important examples of this influential art form and featuring actor/TCM favorite Alec Baldwin as host.

This Spotlight is chock-full of TCM premieres including two episodes of the ongoing series To Tell the Truth: A History of Documentary Film (2014), directed by David Van Taylor and Calvin Skaggs, in which Baldwin serves as a narrator. Episode 1 is entitled Working for Change, while Episode 2 is called Strategy of Truth.

Among 11 other premieres are Paul Strand and Leo Hurwitz's Native Land (1942), which looks at labor organizing during the Great Depression; Michael Wadleigh's Woodstock (1970), a landmark documentation of the turbulent 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Festival; Ira Wohl's Best Boy (1979), a compassionate look at a mentally handicapped man who must learn to care for himself; Godfrey Reggio's Koyaanisqatsi (1982), an expressionistic study of modern humanity's separation from nature; God's Country (1985), Louis Malle's examination of two different eras in the life of a farming community in Minnesota; Michael Moore's Roger & Me (2089), a bold and personal look at the elimination of 30,000 jobs in Flint, Michigan by General Motors; and Alma Har'el's Bombay Beach (2011), a dreamlike reflection upon the American Dream as expressed by life on the edge of California's Salton Sea."

Article:  http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/468440/God-s-Country/articles.html

 

 

"Never widely reviewed by critics, God's Country was called "poignant" by Leonard Maltin and The New York Times stated it was "entirely engrossing."

European critics were more lavish with their praises and more attuned to and disgusted by the element of racism in the film."

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Irving Brecher. William Bendix, James Gleason, Rosemary DeCamp, Bill Goodwin, Beulah Bondi, Meg Randall, Richard Long, John Brown.

Adaptation of the popular radio comedy series about hard-luck working stiff Chester A. Riley. More bittersweet than the subsequent TV series but enjoyable, with the black comedy of Brown's Digger O'Dell a real novelty.
