News From Home ( 1976)

 

A female film director explores New York City while enduring demanding letters from her mother.

Dir Chantal Akerman

C- 89 mins,

"....... letters heard in Akerman's voiceover. These are letters the filmmaker actually received from her mother, Natalia Akerman, a Holocaust survivor and fretful parent who later became the subject of No Home Movie, the documentary Akerman finished shortly before committing suicide in 2015. Viewers aware of this history will find the soundtrack of News from Home all the more poignant. ..."

Pitfall (1962)

Synopsis:  " A man and his young son arrive at a town where the father has been told he can find work as a miner, only to discover it is deserted (or so it seems). They eventually become residents of this place of lost souls."
 

DirHiroshi Teshigahara CastHisashi Igawa , Sumie Sasaki , Sen Yano .

 

"..... very real concerns about the corruption of Japanese society are folded into a story weaving together murder, treachery, a mysterious man in white and ghosts, an approach that has earned the picture a reputation as a horror film as well as an example of the Japanese New Wave.

An unsettling and unconventional sound design and a visual style that superimposes the realm of the dead onto stark, barren landscapes contribute to the surreal atmosphere of desolation and anxiety......"

Wed., 6-26 for                            SOTM:  Jane Powell......

8:00 PM (ET)
B/W - 82

 
genre_NONE_expanded.gif

Synopsis:  strictly on the end of the spectrum as a kitschy B movie. The story centers on a love triangle featuring an aging movie star (Hedy Lamarr), the handsome extra who saves her life (George Nader) and the adopted daughter who shares her mother's penchant for liquor (Jane Powell).
 

DirHarry Keller CastHedy Lamarr , Jane Powell , Jan Sterling .

"......... While the film did not do well at the box office, it deserves more attention than it has received over the years. It's got a fantastic cast of players including Jan Sterling, who plays Lily Frayne, another aging actress holding on to any semblance of her youth, and James Gleason who has a small role as bartender Tom Maloney. Powell delivers by inhabiting quite a sexy performance. ..."

see: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/74733/Female-Animal-The/articles.html

 
 
 

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
 

😧 Harry Keller. Hedy Lamarr, Jane Powell, Jan Sterling, George Nader.

Sad waste of Lamarr as mature Hollywood star who grapples with adopted daughter Powell over Nader. CinemaScope.

Fri., 6-28 for                        Stonewall.....

(times ET)

8:00 PM

Some of My Best Friends Are... ( 1971)

the melancholic frustrations of the gay community post-Stonewall, as reflected in a diverse assemblage of people frequenting a Greenwich Village gay bar on Christmas Eve.

 

 

Dir Mervyn Nelson Cast Tom Bade , David Baker , Paul Blake .

BW- 110 mins, CC, Letterbox Format

 

".... a rough piece of filmmaking, replete with uninspired camerawork, splotchy lighting and muddled sound recording. And while the film is lauded for its emotional authenticity, it also traffics in its fair share of clichs about queer culture and identity which are especially glaring from the vantage point of almost 50 years' hindsight...."

                Underground....

2:00 AM

Myra Breckinridge ( 1970)

Myra (Raquel Welch) takes on toxic masculinity in the form of her uncle, former cowboy star Buck Loner (John Huston), and an overly macho male student (Roger Herren).

 

 

Dir Michael Sarne Cast Mae West , John Huston , Raquel Welch .

BW- 94 mins, CC, Letterbox Format

".... the film hardly seems the disaster it was dubbed at the time. Although West's dialogue had been recycled from her stage appearances in the 1940s and 1950s, it was new to film and often quite funny. Welch actually pulls off some of her comic scenes, creating a stylized performance as Myra that looks much better today than it did in 1970. The film's revolutionary sexual politics, although somewhat watered down from Vidal's original novel, have led to sporadic revivals at gay film festivals. "

😧 Fritz Lang. Klaus Pohl, Willy Fritsch, Gustav von Wangenheim, Gerda Maurus, Fritz Rasp.

"This lesser Lang effort, his last silent film, is about a spaceship and its trip to the moon. It's slow and way overlong, and it pales beside his brilliant METROPOLIS."

I have this movie on Blu-ray. Yeah, it's no Metropolis, but I still like it, and Fritz Rasp is a great pseudo-Nazi bad guy.

A very good film but the science in it is a bit odd. "Only half of the moon has an atmosphere and it's also the half facing away from the sun." :lol:

Il Bidone (1955)

Synopsis:
DirFederico Fellini CastBroderick Crawford , Richard Basehart , Franco Fabrizi .

" Although the overall mood of the film is lightly suspenseful, the climax arrives with a joltingly unexpected plot twist and the finale is starkly tragic, relieved only by the knowledge that a sort of rough justice has finally been served on at least one of the crooked main characters. ....."

see: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/92125/Il-Bidone/articles.html

 
 
 

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
 

😧 Federico Fellini. Broderick Crawford, Giulietta Masina, Richard Basehart, Franco Fabrizi.

"Absorbing Fellini tale, which he co-scripted, about a trio of small-time crooks who go about fleecing peasants in Italy, each planning for a better life. The spotlight is on the eldest, a world-weary loser nicely played by Crawford. Not among the director's best; still an intriguing portrait of hope and desperation.

Aka THE SWINDLERS. Original title: IL BIDONE."

BTW, I was just looking at your site, and are you sure you have the correct Ascent?  There were two movies by that title in 1977, and I know TCM ran the Larisa Shepitko movie since TCM Imports is how I saw it.

I seem to recall that when it was scheduled, they had the wrong info up on the TCM schedule. I figured it was the Shepitko film, because iirc, it was paired with her other film Wings (1966).

Two conflicting AKA title/year pairs that went unnoticed, sounds like TCM had something similar happen on their end, with the way they bring AFI data into their schedule.

I even recorded this one for myself, from one of the earlier airings where it was actually listed correctly in the schedule (just cross-checked this).

This information is all incorrect. It's for the 1972 B movie and is completely unrelated. It listed the same plot on my television as well.

A spectacular example of "garbage in, garbage out".  :D

This one might be a bit harder to figure out, but let's see what happened. 

Here are the IMDB entries for both movies.

-------------

Original Title:
Spalovac mrtvol (1969)

AKA titles:
Cremator (1969)
Der Leichenverbrenner (1970)
L'uomo che bruciava i cadaveri (1969)
The Cremator (1969)

--------------

Original Title:
The Cremators (1972)

AKA:
Dune Rollers (1972)

-----------

And here is the entry copied and pasted as-is from the schedule, including formatting.

 

6:15 PM

Cremators, The ( 1969)

 

 

Dir Harry Essex Cast Mason Caulfield , Marvin C. Howard , Maria Di Aragon .

BW- 100 mins,
 

-----------
 

There is no "s" on the end of the title.  That throws it off, apparently even for TCM.

I recorded it for the B movie, but I'll be happy to watch this instead.

 

Keep those corrections coming in, whether you see an error with my work or with the TCM schedule, as that does help me out.

DirJeffrey Schwarz CastTab Hunter , Robert Wagner , Clint Eastwood .

....David Friend of Vanity Fair calling it, "slick, savvy, rollicking, and eye-popping....Tab Hunter Confidential is not only brave for its candor and enlightening for the social context it provides, it is also a delightful eyeful, using ingeniously edited vintage clips and employing rarely seen still photos...."
