5 a.m.  Night and Fog (1955).  Extraordinary short subject on the holocaust by Alain Resnais.

I first saw this film in 9th grade history class. I sat there watching in the darkened room with my palms sweating and feeling nauseated. Most of my classmates were passing notes and whispering to each other and my teacher (whom I liked more than all of my other teachers that year) was at her desk correcting exams, completely ignoring the fact that most of her class was using this time as a social event. I was very angry with her that day. I felt she did a great injustice to anyone who was sacrificed or who sacrificed during the holocaust.

Lovely film with some truly beautiful photography.

It reminds me of the time I was tramping through some woods and came across a doe with a fawn feeding off her. Just feet away stood a second fawn watching them. It was amazing that they allowed me to be so close, perhaps 100 feet (I guess they didn't hear me). I watched them transfixed, realizing at the time that this was a unique moment for me, feeling privileged to share it with the three animals. I stood perfectly still for about three minutes watching, just me, three deer and about a thousand mosquitoes landing on me. Finally I couldn't stand it any longer and I took a slap at the blood suckers. The deer were gone in five seconds but the mosquitoes remained. Still, for about three minutes, I shared that moment with those deer.

Watching it on Hulu right now!

I’m thrilled this film is finally showing up on TCM, it deserves to be worked into regular rotation.

YES! I liked it better than the 40s version.

MELVYN DOUGLAS. 

I think Michael Douglas was probably busy filming the Disney movie "Napoleon and Samantha" with Jodie Foster at the time. :P

(wasn't on schedule as of Today.......... :unsure:

Tonight: a post-apocalyptic double premiere beginning with DEATHSPORT (1978) at 2:00 am east / 11:00 pm west
 
followed by CHERRY 2000 (1987) at 3:30 am east / 12:30 pm west!

Deathsport is the inferior follow-up to Death Race 2000 (1974). It's a fairly humdrum sci-fi exploitation flick indicative of the late 70's stunt-heavy trend. It does feature David Carradine, B-movie queen Claudia Jennings, and creepy Richard Lynch, so there's that.

MV5BZmM0Y2ZmMjYtYzAxNS00YjkxLTlkZGItMGY2

 

Cherry 2000 used to show up on HBO a lot in the 80's. Melanie Griffith co-stars, before she became a big-name star thanks to Working Girl the following year. Male lead David Andrews showed up in a lot of TV and movies, but never quite cracked the big time. The movie's not awful, and it does have a minor cult following, but I wouldn't rank it as a favorite myself. Appearances by Larry Fishburne, Harry Carey Jr., Brion James, and Ben Johnson are appreciated.

I thought that was Molly Ringwald at first and was confused that I didn't remember that film.

I give Oscar Month a hard time, but MONDAY NIGHT AT 10:00 PM- a marvelous PARAMOUNT film of the 40's-

1a5a4d2c583ac3b16117a701990a004b.jpg

HOLD BACK THE DAWN which features terrific performances by OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND, CHARLES BOYER and PAULETTE GODDARD and a marvelously clever META OPENING which features cameos by ALAN LADD and VERONICA LAKE as themselves shooting I WANTED WINGS on the PARAMOUNT LOT.

I saw it many years ago and watched it a couple of times.  Still remember it.  Fairly entertaining and sometimes comical.  I still see it listed from time to time on some channels, but not sure which ones.

It's been a few years since I first saw BUS STOP on TCM, but I recall thinking that- along with THE MISFITS and GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES- BUS STOP is a rare 50/50 split for MARILYN wherein she is a GENUINE CO-LEAD.

DON MURRAY- who got a slightly curious SUPPORTING ACTOR NOMINATION although he is in over 90% of the movie- is ELECTRIC.
