Hot Spell (1958)

 

have absolutely no idea why it is no longer shown. none. it's like tcm forgot it exists.

 

this film cries out to be shown again by tcm.

 

why? why is it now gone? :huh:

TRIUMPH OF THE WILL, Documentary, 1934-36

 

OLYMPIA, Parts 1 and 2, 1936, documentary

 

THE RIVER, WPA documentary, 1930s.

 

THE LOUISIANA STORY, documentary, 1950s.

 

Correct me if I am wrong, but my records indicate that Phantom Lady 1944 has been the only selection (of those you've listed) to air on TCM - at least in the last decade.  :o

 

But, I'll second your selections as I love documentaries

TCM aired those documentaries once, about 15 years ago. That was the first and only time I ever saw them. I think I recorded all of them.

 

The OLYMPIA films set the world standard for Olympics coverage by film or TV, and Leni's techniques are still being used today in modern Olympics coverage, such as the little camera running along the side of the track as the runners run down the track. The camera keeps up with the runners. Also, she dug pits in the ground to lower her camera lenses to ground-level. A technique still used today. Also, long-telephoto lens close-ups of atheletes faces. Still used today.

The famous close-up films of American runner Jesse Owens, which we have seen all our lives, were Leni's films:

I'm limiting myself ....

The Adding Machine 1969 with Milo O'Shea and Phyllis Diller as Mrs. Zero.  Her best film.

The Affairs of Cellini.  very funny film with Fredric March, Frank Morgan and Fay Wray in what may be her best film.

Amanita Pestilens 1963.  Genevieve Bujold's first film.  Very funny

The Big Pond 1930 Paramount Chevalier/Colbert film

Bulldog Drummond 1929.  How about the Ronald Colman original for Drummond in June?

Come Fill the Cup 1951  James Cagney film that has gone AWOL.  Gig Young in support

Death of a Salesman 1951.  With Fredric March and Mildred Dunnock

The Fixer  1968.  John Frankenheimer film with Alan Bates

Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick 1972.  Wim Wenders film

The Golem 1936.  Terrific performance by Harry Bauer

Harvest 1937.  Marcel Pagnol film

Holiday 1930.  Ann Harding version

Kentucky 1938.  Fox film with one of Walter Brennan's 3 Oscar winning performances

Mayerling 1936 and 1968

Paper Lion 1968.  Alan Alda film that has all but disappeared

The Rat Race 1960.  Debbie Reynolds film.  Did we miss this?

Sarah and Son 1930.  with Fredric March and Ruth Chatterton

Skippy 1931.  Jackie Cooper's Oscar nominated performance

State Secret 1950.  With Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.

The Trespasser 1929.  with Gloria Swanson

Voyage of the Damned 1976.  with Max von.  Hard to catch for some reason.

White Banners 1938.  with Claude Rains and Fay Bainter

Wilson 1944.  Alexander Knox - yet another Canuck playing an American president!

A Woman's Tale 1991.  Paul Cox film with an extraordinary performance by Sheila Florance

MovieCollector--

 

Can you let me know the last time THE BIG CLOCK (1948) aired...? It's coming up tomorrow, and I swear it has been at least five years since we saw it on TCM. 

 

And regarding Nipkow's request for the short 'Our Old Car,' it is included in its entirety in THE GREAT MORGAN. So maybe you can let Nipkow know how frequently THE GREAT MORGAN has aired.

sorry for the formatting, that is how it copies and pastes from an exported Excel sheet.

p.s. I am showing 2002 for some dates, but cannot rule movies out for that year as 2002 is an incomplete year in my listings.

Thanks. Interesting there was a gap from 2003 to 2009 for THE BIG CLOCK. I guess it has only been a little over three years since it last aired. I knew it had been a while, though.

Fred, have you ever seen the 1980 horror movie 'WITHOUT WARNING'?  Starring Martin Landau.  Here's a direct quote from the capsule review in the 1990 Leonard Maltin video guide:  "A few scattered laughs and shudders, some intense acting, and a flagrantly bad job by Landau as a militant ex-sergeant named Fred Dobbs".  Hee Hee.  I've seen this movie thrice.  Watch 'PREDATOR' after seeing this! 

 

    Also:  As far as Vivien Leigh goes there's not many movies to pick from.  I thought she was in approx. 15 movies and I decided to look them up in those old Leonard Maltin's guides I keep around.  (If I missed any, let me know and I'll add them).      

 

    Ship of Fools (1965)

     Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone, The (1961)

     Deep Blue Sea, The (1955-UK)

     Streetcar Named Desire, A (1951)

     Anna Karenina (1948-UK)

     Caesar and Cleopatra (1946-UK)

     That Hamilton Woman (1941)

     Waterloo Bridge (1940)

     Gone With The Wind (1939)

     Yank At Oxford, A (1938-U.S./UK) 

     Sidewalks of London (1938-UK)

     21 Days Together (1938-UK)

     Storm In A Teacup (1937-UK)

     Fire Over England (1937-UK)

     Dark Journey (1937-UK)

     Village Squire, The (1935-UK)

     Look Up and Laugh (1935-UK)

     Things Are Looking Up (1935-UK) [iMDb says her role is 'Uncredited']

     Gentleman's Agreement (1935-UK)* Current status of this film:  "Lost"

    --------------------------------------------

 

      *I looked on the IMDb and it appears there's 4 more film appearances by Vivien Leigh listed.  All four movies are British films released in 1935, one of which is considered a "lost" film by the BFI.

RIDE A PINK HORSE has shown on TCM, albeit infrequently, in the past 5 years. 

 

I bought my recorder about 6-7 years ago and I swear, the week it was hooked up TCM stopped showing 1960's ALL THE FINE YOUNG CANNIBALS. There just aren't enough movies with Susan Kohner!  love this movie and it's not available on DVD. Wah!

Excellent list. I had hoped THE SHRIKE would be picked for June Allyson's SOTM tribute but alas, they went with the remake of MY MAN GODFREY in pan-and-scan instead.

 

SUDDEN FEAR would set this message board afire if TCM ever aired it. There would be discussion about it for days, weeks.
