Greece on TCM

zorba the greek

It's been a really long time since I've seen this one.

Didn't one of the actors win a supporting award for this movie? I know it wasn't Anthony Quinn, he was nominated in the Best Actor category but lost to MY FAIR LADY'S Rex Harrison.

Lila Kedrova earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

Nice selection of films. 

Though I have as of yet caught THREE LOVES HAS NANCY, will want to check that one out.

It's a lot of fun, a charming rom-com with the usual triangle/complications. Janet Gaynor retired from movies in 1938.

She was coaxed out of retirement for one more film in 1957 back at her old stomping grounds 20th Century Fox.

In THREE LOVES HAS NANCY, she's in peak form.

This thread will look at how much people watch TCM (or if they are watching competing channels more).

 

 

 

I watch The Criterion Channel far more for World Cinema and American Classics.

Don't recall seeing William Wellmann's 1937 newspaper satire, Nothing Sacred, on TCM recently. Watching it on CC.

I think NOTHING SACRED aired on August 31st as part of Fredric March's Summer Under the Stars tribute.

Guess it didn't make it to WatchTCM. The airing wasn't two weeks ago! 🙂

Don't see many 1930s NYC movies in color!

MacRae on TCM

about face

backfire

the daughter of rosie o’grady

three sailors and a girl

on moonlight bay

by the light of the silvery moon

the desert song

Nice line-up. 

Though I can't help but always associate him as Curly in the 1955 film adaptation of OKLAHOMA! That was my first musical and first film I saw him in.

That's a great one to start with and get introduced to his talents as a musical actor.

Communicate on TCM

cool hand luke

Can I state  just how much I love this movie?

Paul Newman at his finest, along with a wonderful cast of character actors (George Kennedy, Strother Martin, Harry Dean Stanton, J.D. Cannon, Morgan Woodward, etc). 

Probably my favorite prison flick of all time.

He made so many great films during that period. I also like HOMBRE and RACHEL RACHEL (which Newman directed).
