1:15 a.m.  The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948).  Great John Huston film.

 

Ann Sheridan spoke in an interview a few years before her death of how she played a prostitute in a cameo in this film. Her scene was cut, replaced by another actress. I was a little surprised, though, that Sheridan didn't realize this was done. I can only conclude that the lady presumably never saw the John Huston classic.

Maybe Ann's price was too high.

tonight at 8:00,

Fact: I have no soul and do not cast a reflection in mirrors, but even I am moved emotionally by THE HUMAN COMEDY (1943)

It's not a perfect film, and it's not a film for everyone, but- damn it- it moves me deeply every time I see it and it is one of my very FAVORITE FILMS from one of my FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE years for film ever ever EVER.

8 p.m.  The Great White Hope (1970).  Good performances from James Earl Jones and Jane Alexander.

James Earl Jones, in preparation for his role based on Jack Johnson, sparring with Muhammad Ali. Ali always maintained that Johnson was the second greatest heavyweight champion, after himself, of course.

Saturday morning, 12:15 a.m.

Forever Amber (1947)

Is this a premiere? If not, it's a rare showing. Story is ok, Linda Darnell looks great, Cornel Wilde is dull, Richard Greene steals his scenes, George Sanders has some cute dogs. Great score by David Raksin.

It's one of those films that you might get through on a first time viewing (overlong as it is) but you will probably never want to go there again.

Linda does look great, though, as you said, even in blonde hair but, dramatically, it's far from her best work.

Cornel Wilde is dull? Here's a test: name a film in which he wasn't (outside of The Naked Prey).

Was this before he shot MLK?

Yes, just afterward. They let Ray out of prison just to make this film. But no wonder Ali really wanted to punch him out.

Okay, thanks for the correction, Lawrence. I'll correct the name.

I didn't think he was dull in The Greatest Show On Earth ... although most of the film was.
