Homeruns on TCM

the jackie robinson story

the natural

 

 Though Ben Mankiewicz and Eddie Muller sported A's and Giants jerseys, respectively, curiously their evening talk(s) of baseball neither included mention of Monte Irvin and Hank Thompson nor Reggie Jackson's super-sized slug in the 1971 All-Star Game.

 Thompson and Irvin, both New York Giants, shortly followed Jackie Robinson's stand against the color barrier in Major League Baseball.

 Reggie Jackson, a member of the Oakland A's at the time, hit a 500'+ home run into a standard at Tiger Stadium - presumably the germ for the cascading lights scene in The NATURAL (1984).

Thanks for posting. I would have highlighted LUST FOR GOLD since it's a neglected Columbia western. Also WOMAN IN HIDING as it is a seldom-seen noir from Universal.

I would not have highlighted CHARADE since it's in the public domain and can be found on YouTube and many other places.

It looks like one of their spotlights will be on Ida Lupino.

Glad to see PETER IBBETSON and HOLD BACK THE DAWN, two Paramount classics.

Westerns on TCM

station west

blood on the moon

the badlanders

along the great divide

colorado territory

riding shotgun

roughshod

"Blood on the Moon," is my favorite "not well known" western. It's one I think should have a higher profile in the genre. But then director Robert Wise is almost incapable of making a bad movie.

Totally agree. Robert Mitchum made several very good western noirs...BLOOD ON THE MOON, PURSUED and TRACK OF THE CAT.

In rotation on ScreenPix this weekend:  HIGHLY DANGEROUS (1950, Dane Clark in Brit drama about germ warfare; Margaret Lockwood, of all people, is an entomologist); CRUCIBLE OF HORROR (1971 surreal Brit thriller with LES DIABOLIQUES overtones; Michael Gough as abusive, tyrannical head of family); THE BIG CAPER (1957, Rory Calhoun and James Gregory plan a bank heist that of course doesn't quite come off as initially conceived); AT THE EARTH'S CORE (1976, Brit sci-fi with neat monsters and a delightful performance by Peter Cushing); SOME GIRLS DO (1969 tediously droll Brit Bond send-up with Richard Johnson -- a fine actor best remembered as Dr. Markway in THE HAUNTING -- looking understandably bored as Bulldog Drummond, updated with girls, gadgets, exotic settings and the like); MATCHLESS (1967, wonderfully awful Brit spy spoof starring Patrick O'Neal as American journalist turned secret agent after he's given a magic ring that renders the wearer invisible for 10 hours, thus better enabling him to get the goods on the cartoon villains); THE INITIATION OF SARAH, (1978, with Shelley Winters giving one of the worst performances of her career as a sinister sorority house mother); REPORT TO THE COMMISSIONER (gritty '70's crime drama about New York City police corruption - Michael Moriarty is a cop with a weird Ratzo Rizzo accent); REPTILICUS (1961, Copenhagen threatened by prehistoric puppet)
