Maybe it will turn into a TCM December staple, like IT HAPPENED ON 5TH AVENUE and HOLIDAY AFFAIR. Later Thursday night they are airing THE CHEATERS for the 2nd consecutive year. I saw it for the first time last year and was very impressed and also a bit surprised I had never heard of it before (especially since I am a fan of Joseph Schildkraut.)

Big fan of THE CHEATERS. Love Republic Pictures.

the thrill of it all

send me no flowers

Merry Christmas! 🙂 Must admit, I haven't watched a DDay film, save the Hitccock above, that didn't feature her singing. I'll catch one of these tomorrow. Thanks.

The Rocket from Calabuch (1956, Barlanga)

I love this one from Berlanga. An unassuming old physicist who gets into a hot seat over the atom bomb controversy takes refuge in an obscure Spanish town and forms a bond of frienship with its denizens. Charming romp.

Lillies of the Field (1963, Ralph Nelson)

A travelling handyman becomes the answer to the prayers of nuns who wish to build a chapel in the desert.

Don't make em like this anymore. Avoid the colorized version like the plague. Not sure long how YouTube'll run it. Safe bet is til the end of the month.

Could not agree more and your choice of a picture is from my favorite scene where they "debate" the bible - it's pure movie chemistry gold between two talented actors.

Talented guy who's still around, Bless him. Didn't know he was Tom Thumb in the 1958 MGM musical! Why don't they air that one? Off to find a nice version of it now... 🙂

They actually showed it in November (Thanksgiving day, I believe.)

All Over Town, the 1937 Olsen and Johnson "comedy" is currently available on Amazon Prime and on YouTube.

As far as I'm concerned, the "comedy" antics of Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson are an acquired taste -- ditto Brown and Carney, The Ritz Brothers, Snoopnagle and Budd, and Joe Penner.

Among the cast in All Over Town is Harry Stockwell, father of Dean and Guy and the singing voice of the Prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs*. Sometimes -- at certain camera angles and in medium camera shots -- Stockwell, to me, resembled Paul Newman.

Although I don't find Olsen and Johnson at all funny, I wish that Turner Classic Movies would broadcast Hellzapoppin and especially Ghost Catchers.

* Should the title be Snow White and the Seven Dwarves?

Last call for Kirk...

There Was A Crooked Man (1970, Joseph L. Mankiewicz)

Revisiting one of my favorites from Kirk and Mank on the Criterion Channel. Offbeat and nasty, this wayward Prison Break/Western is right on point about American society. May sneak in another Douglas flick by January 1st. They're all leaving by midnight tonight.
