Awesome lineup! And no GREASE (Thank goodness! Although she was hilarious as Principal McGee).

She Couldn't Say No is hilarious nonsense.  And Eve Arden is really top dog in it though Roger Pryor (???) gets that billing. Glad to discover this one.

Great group of films to showcase a very talented actress.

I'm glad to see THE DARK ANGEL airing. It's based on a play I like. And I think NIGHT SONG is an unheralded classic with a great cast that includes Dana Andrews, Ethel Barrymore and Hoagy Carmichael.

HOTEL (which served as the basis for the Aaron Spelling TV series that came later) is one of her best later films. She was in some junk at the end.

Hollywood never ussd Ms Oberon to her advantage. The british film makers gave her much better roles ( my opinion, of course.)

In the 1930s they did, because she was married to British producer Alexander Korda. After she divorced Korda and stayed in America, her career changed.

That's a shame, because she really was a talented lady, very much underappreciated in today's age of modern viewing.

POINT BLANK is one I've never seen all the way through (I am always interrupted watching it!). But it has a good reputation.

I could never get into THE DIRTY DOZEN.

I do like THE PROFESSIONALS a lot.

POCKET MONEY is one I haven't seen.

I couldn't get into THE DIRTY DOZEN. But I sincerely doubt I am part of the target audience.

I didn't think I'd like THE DIRTY DOZEN when I first saw it, but I ended up enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would (and I'm a woman).

And THE PROFESSIONALS....how can you go wrong with Lee and Burt Lancaster in it? Not to mention you also got great actors such as Robert Ryan, Jack Palance, Woody Strode and Ralph Bellamy along for the ride.

I am a fan of director Robert Aldrich. But I think THE DIRTY DOZEN turned me off because in some ways it seemed derivative of THE GREAT ESCAPE, which is impossible to top.

Love-love-love  Jack Palance in westerns...SHANE, THE PROFESSIONALS, MONTE WALSH, THE MCMASTERS and OKLAHOMA CRUDE...the grittier the better, with Jack in villain mode. He satirized his "hard" western image later in CITY SLICKERS.

Other than Curly in CITY SLICKERS, did Jack Palance every play a GOOD guy? I can't remember if he did. 

He was mostly known to play the heavies, for sure, but he was pretty darn convincing every time.

Well he's a tortured good guy in THE BIG KNIFE (1955) which is an interesting role for him.

He's someone who deserves a Summer Under the Stars day on TCM.

JACK PALANCE played a 'good guy' in MONTE WALSH (1970), btw.  Mitchell Ryan played a real scumbag in that one.

MERLE OBERON's last movie was INTERVAL (1973-Mexican).  Doesn't show up much on-air from *any* movie channel I know of.

Really strong schedule here.

Of course, I gotta watch CASABLANCA. Can't miss DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE, GASLIGHT and ANASTASIA either.

She was in a dreadful one with Steve Cochran in the mid-60s. They were romantically involved at the time. It occasionally airs on FXM Retro.

I'm really looking forward to WALPURGIS NIGHT. It stars one of my favorite international actors, Lars Hanson, along with Bergman and Victor Sjöström. Thank you, Criterion Collection!

Great list of movies, though I do wish they had added THE ROARING TWENTIES on the schedule.

I definitely want to catch the documentary on him.

Awesome collection of March's films. 

Even though he is thought mostly as a dramatic actor (and an excellent one at that), he showed a great flair for comedy too, such as in NOTHING SACRED and I MARRIED A WITCH.

He's also very good in the comedy THERE GOES MY HEART (1938).
