70s on TCM

the bad news bears

 I remember hitting against a pitcher in a golden yellow uniform during my 1970s SFValley childhood, but he wasn't as cute as this one:

 I wonder if some of Tatum O'Neal's equipment actually came from Willis - a sporting goods staple in the Valley at that time:

 Celebrating the cinematography of John Alonzo, TCM didn't make viewers wait too long to see a shoot worthy of praise: Alonzo's depth of field shot of Chatsworth's Mason Park ballfield set the proverbial quiet before the storm of THE BAD NEWS Bears. Ben Mankiewicz's outro talk included the reason for the aforementioned scene's natural lighting: Hundred degree temperatures in the SFValley prompted shoots near the edges of daylight.

Great selection of films. Lewton made some really classic flicks in the 40's.

Love this movie.

Though you have to wonder how many Eve Harringtons there really were back then, or are still out there nowadays.

She plays a similar character in GUEST IN THE HOUSE (1944).

It's always sort of annoyed me that people over-emphasize Bette Davis' role in ALL ABOUT EVE. But without Anne Baxter, there is nothing, no title character, no devious machinations. And she's fantastic. Just as excellent as she was in her Oscar winning role in THE RAZOR'S EDGE.

My guess is that there were a lot of what-a-be Eve Harringtons out in the real world of acting but only one in a million were able to advance like Eve in the film.

Looking forward to STAGE DOOR. What a cast!

You have Lucy, Ginger Rogers, Katharine Hepburn, Eve Arden, Adolphe Menjou.....can't wait to catch it.

Also Andrea Leeds who earned an Oscar nomination. She had a short Hollywood career, married some wealthy guy, quit acting and bred racehorses.

Beauty on TCM

beauty for the asking

Thanks for the tip;  I haven't seen either of these films so for me they are premiere films and that is refreshing.

EDITED:   I have seen Beauty For the Asking.    I believe TCM showed the film just within the last 2 - 3 months and that is when I saw it.

I don't recall seeing this one. Will have to check it out.

TRACK OF THE CAT is a Warner Brothers film produced by John Wayne's company Batjac. However, the rights were sold to Paramount, which explains why it seldom airs on TCM. Excellent cast, wonderful outdoor cinematography, interesting storyline. Highly recommended.

While technically labeled a western, it's also an example of color noir.
