Marlon Brando at his best!! 

If you can't wait until January 30th to see Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront on TCM, it's coming on PBS (channel 13 in New York) this Saturday, January 9th at 9:00 p.m.

Love the music, lovethe cast and the rumble between Brando  and Lee J. Cobb.  (No Commercials)

If you want to sing out loud, Grease will be on MOVIES (Channel 493, Fios in New York)

Enjoy

Thanks for the  heads up on these! :)

 "It's funny how the colours of the real world only look really real when you viddy 'em on the screen." - A Clockwork Orange
 
 More especially when it was sixties TV given a silver screen sendup as is MUNSTER, GO HOME!: Butch Patrick's howlin' Wolfman getup is as purple as a Tom Wolfe prose!
 
 Yvonne De Carlo's diva approach, which Dave Karger referenced earlier in the evening with his Death of a Scoundrel intro, haunted the set of THE MUNSTERS. This, coupled with a ratings scare by a rival cathode caped character to Al Lewis' grumpy ghoul, BATMAN, nailed down the series' prime time coffin. (Fred Gwynne's hulking alter ego gives a shout-out to his masked stalker in the movie!) 
 The undead of syndication though, which is said to be the primary reason for the 96 minute bumper here, gave the kookie klan a television afterlife.

Thanks for sharing what Dave Karger said about Yvonne De Carlo. Interesting.

 You're welcome, TopBilled...

 Before leaving the De Carlo evening behind: It was interesting seeing future "CHiPs" actor Robert Pine "pulling over" Debbie Watson's character in MUNSTER, GO HOME!
