10 p.m.  Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (1963)

 

 

Sophia's playful striptease before an eager Marcello Mastroianni in the final episode may well be the most famous scene of her career, one to which she and Marcello would pay tribute 30 years later by repeating it in Ready To Wear (with a different ending).

2 a.m.  Coma (1978).  With Genevieve Bujold and Michael Douglas.  I’ve never seen this one.

I remember the 70's Mad Magazine parody, as Bujold is chased through the storage room of medical cadavers in body bags:  "What is this place?  It looks like a Polish dry-cleaners!"  :lol:

Saturday, November 4/5

3:45 a.m.  I see the originally scheduled  Cleopatra Jones (1973) is now gone and has been replaced with the sexy Swamp Thing (1982).

5:30 a.m.  Match Your Mood (1968).  Ladies, learn how to ‘improve your lives’ by decorating your refrigerator.

Saturday, Nov. 4th/5th; all times E.S.T.:

12:00 p.m. "Trooper Hook" (1957)--Underrated Joel McCrea/Barbara Stanwyck western deals with some of the same themes as "The Searchers" (1956).

2:00 a.m. "Deadly Friend" (1986)--The first of a Wes Craven double feature, film is definitely worth a watch.

3:45 a.m. "Swamp Thing" (1982)--Another recommendation for this movie.

I love Match Your Mood. It’s hilarious. This short, and the Tupperware one are my favorites.

Careful about the times for TCM Underground tonight.  With the end of Daylight Saving time, everything is moved back an hour.  The TCM online schedule has The MGM Story between the two features; my set-top box guide has it at the end of the night.

Monday, November 6

1:30 p.m.  The Falcon and the Co-Eds (1944).  The Falcon surrounded by babes!

 

If you like the Falcon movies, this is one of the better ones.  If you haven't seen them, this would be a good place to start.  There is a DVD set available of all the Falcon movies.
