Rails Into Laramie ( 1954)

A railroad sends an agent to Laramie to try to find out who is behind the efforts to stop the railroad from building its line into the area.

 

 

Dir Jesse Hibbs Cast John Payne , Mari Blanchard , Dan Duryea .

BW- 81 mins, CC,

"..... It's got a reliable lead in John Payne, who, in the next year would go on to film two other transportation-theme-titled Westerns (Santa Fe Passage and The Road to Denver, both as memorable as their names suggest). But the wild card in the stack was supporting actor Dan Duryea. .....Duryea gave a special spark to the noir and Western canons, and it's quite fun to see him let loose, especially in a thrilling climax set on a moving train. While Laramie as a standalone film isn't particularly memorable, it's the work of actors like Duryea who add color and texture to the canvas of the West in all its history and mythology. "

Fingers (1978)

Synopsis:  A wanna-be concert pianist spends his days making a living by collecting debts for his Mafioso father, a lifestyle that could eventually ruin his dreams of a musical career.
 

DirJames Toback CastZack Norman , Frank Pesce , Harvey Keitel .

"........Toback, making his directing debut, is clearly exorcising - or indulging - a few personal demons, and the perverse conviction of Keitel's tormented performance, reinforced by restless, sometimes volatile visuals, prevents the overheated plot from becoming entirely risible. It's not exactly pleasant, but it is compelling. "

Cover Me Babe ( 1970)

The story of a film student who films in search of reality. After alienating everyone around him, his professor points out that reality is subjective--just because something is on film doesn't make it true.

 

 

Dir Noel Black Cast Robert Forster , Sondra Locke , Susanne Benton .

BW- 85 mins, CC,

"......is the sort of movie that needs the words of a critic less than it requires the services of an analyst, displaying, as it does, a compulsive need to ridicule itself, to deny its basic intelligence and to fail. It accomplishes all of these things with an idiocy that should warm the neurotic heart...."

Jennifer on My Mind ( 1971)

A rich American boy meets a rich American girl in Venice and tragically leads her into drug abuse.

 

 

Dir Noel Black Cast Michael Brandon , Tippy Walker , Steve Vinovich .

BW- 90 mins, CC, Letterbox Format

"....Variety noted: "The delightfully ridiculous plot, mock-sentimental narration, absurd dialog, infectious syrupy music and intermittent idyllic interludes all parody Love Story. And yet, like Pretty Poison, this is a potpourri of disarming satire, black comedy and poignancy that creates a strangely haunting aura...."

Criterion issued a Lone Wolf and Cub film collection blu-ray set in 2016 and has some interesting background material on their web site at:

https://www.criterion.com/boxsets/1217-lone-wolf-and-cub

There is a 5-minute introduction video if you scroll down.  I assume the films TCM shows on the channel will be from the Criterion Collection.

Note there are 6 films in the series:

1. Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance (1972)   (TCM April 5)
2. Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx (1972)   (TCM April 5)
3. Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades (1972)   (TCM April 12)
4. Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril (1972)   (TCM April 12)
5. Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in the Land of Demons (1973)
6. Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell (1974)

TCM had originally planned to show all six films on TCM Imports this month, but the change to the schedule for the TCM Film Festival during April 16-19 meant that two of the Lone Wolf and Cub films were preempted (films 5 and 6).

Hopefully these last 2 films will be rescheduled for TCM Imports, perhaps as soon as sometime in July.

genre_NONE_expanded.gif

Synopsis:  British  officials would print a set of bogus documents indicating that the Allies were actually preparing to invade nearby Sardinia and Greece, throwing the Germans off the Sicilian scent. ......... arranged for an elaborate subterfuge whereby a drowned man would be washed ashore - on a Spanish coastline where Germans would be pretty sure to find the body - with the papers hidden in his clothing.
 

DirRonald Neame CastClifton Webb , Gloria Grahame , Robert Flemyng .

"..... director Neame keeps the story moving at a brisk pace, giving it enough bite and surprise to keep it involving from start to finish. Clifton Webb plays mildly against type as Lieutenant Commander Montagu, making a strong enough impression to remain a vivid presence even during the long stretch when the German agent dominates the story. Gloria Grahame and Josephine Griffin are excellent as Lucy and Pam, respectively, and Grahame delivers a stunning moment when a phone call at work informs her that her fiance has been killed. Winston Churchill doesn't appear on the screen, but his voice is heard, impersonated by none other than the great comedian Peter Sellers in a non-comic performance that couldn't be more convincing."

see:  http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/82752/Man-Who-Never-Was-The/articles.html

 
 
 

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
 

😧 Ronald Neame. Cast:  Clifton Webb, Gloria Grahame, Robert Flemyng, Josephine Griffin, Stephen Boyd.

"Good WW2 spy yarn based on true story of Allies planting elaborate red herring to divert attention from invasion of Sicily. CinemaScope."

Synopsis:   Animator. Storyman. Troublemaker. At 80 years old, see how Disney Legend Floyd Norman, the first African-American animator at Disney, continues to impact animation and stir up "trouble" after the company force-retired him at age 65.
 

DirMichael Fiore CastCosmo Anzilotti , Jane Baer , Dave Bossert .

".........Besides extensive commentary by the youthfully vibrant Norman, the film features effusive testimonials by many of his colleagues and friends, including Whoopi Goldberg, Leonard Maltin and such animation veterans as Dean DeBlois (How to Train Your Dragon), Gary Trousdale (Beauty and the Beast) and Mary Poppins composer Richard M. Sherman.

Diffuse and rambling at times, An Animated Life, which sometimes has the feel of a tribute film shown at an award gala, is not as compelling as such similarly themed docs as Waking Sleeping Beauty and Frank and Ollie. Nonetheless, it serves as an entertaining salute to an unsung figure whose considerable accomplishments well deserve recognition.   "

Fireworks (1997)

Synopsis:  Nishi, a violent cop forced into retirement by an accident that caused the death of one colleague and severe injuries to two others. Unemployed, he spends most of his time caring for his leukemia-stricken wife and borrowing money from the yakuza to stay afloat.
 

DirTakeshi Kitano CastTakeshi Kitano , Kayoko Kishimoto , Ren Ôsugi

"....The story has the violence and tension characteristic of the yakuza genre, but Kitano imbues it with a serenity and tender humanity, along with a formal and narrative minimalism, that render the work, in the eyes of many reviewers and audiences, unclassifiable and hard to describe. There is little dialogue in the film and long pauses between lines. American critic Roger Ebert, rating the film highly in 1998, said Fireworks "lacks all of the narrative cushions and hand-holding that we have come to expect" and called it "a demonstration of what a story such as this is really about, fundamentally, after you cut out the background noise."

Russell battles cultural barriers when she impulsively marries Indian mining engineer Chandler while vacationing in Arizona. Not bad; the stars are well matched. Incidentally, that's Chandler singing the title song; he also wrote the lyrics.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
 

😧 John Cromwell. Irene Dunne, Joel McCrea, Laura Hope Crews, Frances Dee, Eric Linden.

Very much a photographed stage play (by Sidney Howard), but interesting for its look at a self-absorbed woman (Crews) who attempts to dominate her sons' lives completely--not counting on the strength of her new daughter-in-law (Dunne), a career woman with a mind of her own. Both Dunne and Dee are first-rate.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

 

😧 Phil Goldstone. Zita Johann, Alan Dinehart, Paul Cavanagh, Claire Du Brey, John Miljan, Henry B. Walthall, Cora Sue Collins.

Surprisingly interesting Poverty Row cheapie with supernatural overtones, told in flashback, about a hard-luck woman (Johann, who's excellent) who falls in love with the wrong man and makes the ultimate sacrifice for him. More notable for its ambitions than its achievements, with great use of stock footage and a wall-to-wall music score, unusual for 1933.

Synopsis:
DirAndrzej Wolski

“Afterimage,” the final film by Poland’s Andrzej Wajda, is a fitting coda to the career of one of world cinema’s giants. Unlike fellow Poles such as Roman Polanski and Jerzy Skolimowski, who decamped for the West’s freedoms not long after their careers launched, Wajda, who died at 90 following the film’s premiere at last fall’s Toronto International Film Festival, remained in Poland trying to examine that country’s modern history and mores. Prior to the collapse of Soviet Communism, his efforts often led to difficulties with Poland’s Communist regime, which in turn gave him a theme that recurs in “Afterimage”: the necessity for individuals and artists to resist the soul-crushing demands and cruelties of totalitarian governments.....

Synopsis:           ".......director George T. Nierenberg and writer Lynn Rogoff's tribute to three legends of tap dancing--Chuck Green, Bunny Briggs and Harold "Sandman" Sims--and to the art form itself. In the late 1970s, tap dancing was all but dead, having long fallen out of favor. What might be called the golden age of tap dancing occurred at a time when vaudeville, night clubs and legitimate theater were the stomping grounds for tap dancers and some of the most famous dancers would successfully make the transition to film, like The Nicholas Brothers, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, John "Bubbles" Sublett and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson. But society was changing in the 1950s and 1960s, and musical genres changed along with it. .....

Re: No Maps On My Taps

I had a very good co-worker friend that revealed in passing he had suffered years of tap dancing lessons as a boy. I was impressed and asked if he still could do it. He was completely ashamed of it and said he NEVER would tap dance again because he felt it was a "black stereotype". Isn't that sad? Wish I knew how to tap dance.

Could you possibly post these posts a bit earlier? I compile my list and set the DVR near the end of the previous month & have missed a few good premieres. I'm sifting through June right now.

I find your list way easier to understand than Ohio's grid. Sorry, nothing personal Ohio-it's me, I have a tough time with grids.
