Sterling Hayden as SOTM May 2015

Although Strangelove is such a touchstone for TCM, I'm surprised it's relegated to a late night screening at the very end of the run.

 

It's hard to complain about these selections. I love some of these. The Long Goodbye is fantastic; the long sequence at Hayden's house is pure gold. The crime films are his bread and butter. And I would love to give Terror in a Texas Town another viewiing.

TERROR IN A TEXAS TOWN is one of the most stylish low-budget westerns of all time. It's a good one.

I absolutely agree. I happened to be researching the film's screenwriter Leigh Brackett recently, and was surprised to learn that Sterling Hayden wrote all of his own dialogue in THE LONG GOODBYE. He was a man of many talents and varied interests, and I am very much looking forward to this festival in May.

Also looking forward to Hayden as SOTM.    I wish TCM was showing the 1949 film Manhandled with Dorothy Lamour,  Dan Duryea and Hayden.  Not a great noir but it has some interesting scenes,  especially one very chilling death scene.

Yes...TCM has aired it before, but quite some time ago. I would also liked to have seen THE LAST COMMAND, a film about the Alamo he made at Republic. TCM has aired that one too, but not recently.
