TCM and Other Sources for Classic Film

I'm so happy to share that The King and I will be on Fox Movie Network on Sunday, May 30th. The music, the performance by Oscar winner Yul Brynner is a must see again, and again. I've been waiting for such a long time for this film to come back. Of course, I have it on VHS, but now I will keep it on my DVR forever.  Oscar winner Rita Moreno is Tuptim  and Rex Thompson, who gives a strong performance in  All Mines to  Give, (on TCM later today at 2:15 p.m. ) are noteworthy.  Both Rex Thompson and Patrick Ardiarte, who played Prince Chulalongkorn, the eldest of the King's children are alive and in their late 70's.

No one will ever capture the beauty of watching the Kings children march in to meet Anna accompanied by that beautiful music. You feel everything that the story is telling during that march.

This movie was originally made as a drama with Rex Harrison as the King  and Irene Dunn in  Anna and the King of Siam in the 40's. Then Chow Yun Fat as the King  and Jodie Foster  as Anna in Anna and the King drama in the 90's. Her son was played by Tom Felton, who found himself in a number of Harry Potter movies later.

So, don't miss this great film that took home five Oscars.

 Alicia Malone's intro on the paradox of Nicholas Ray directing a musical movie was misleading: Ray is said to have been blocked from having a creative hand in the musical numbers of PARTY GIRL, stifling his "auteurship" of the '58 film.

Some of the wraparound segments have errors in them. Whoever is writing them hasn't fully researched everything. And it makes the hosts look uninformed when that happens.
