What, no Popeye?  No Peter Bogdanovich?  This is the second day in a row that TCM has thrown out the original schedule.

2:30 a.m.  The Lady Vanishes (1938).  Really slick Hitchcock thriller with Margaret Lockwood and Michael Redgrave.

It's because they replaced this weekend's schedule with the "TCM Classic Film Festival - Home Edition" programming.

Thanks to LawrenceA for the explanation as to why the original weekend schedule was ripped up.  Let’s how they re-schedule Lone Wolf and Cub.

6 a.m.  The Vanishing (1988).  The Dutch original according to the schedule.  Creepy and worth seeing.

celebrating Earth Day.

Koyaanisqatsi-768x1138.jpg

8 p.m.  Koyaanisqatsi (1982).  The influence of its cinematography was astounding especially in the world of advertising.

I missed it when it aired on LUPE VELEZ day one SUTS and was bummed. I adore her and, frankly, I like LEE TRACY an awful lot as well- he plays awful people so endearingly.

47cc9d2aa169e0bbbaaf2cc84ffa6eaf--the-sa

10 a.m.  Problem Pappy (1941).

 

a-face-in-the-crowd.jpg?w=700

5:45 p.m.  A Face In the Crowd (1957).  A loudmouth populist enters politics and somehow hoodwinks unsuspecting Americans.  Unbelievable.

Cookie (1989) is the second half of TCM Underground tonight  and its worth a look. Not a major film, but nice sharp playing by Emily Lloyd, Peter Falk, Dianne Wiest and Brenda Vaccaro makes it a fun little comedy.

And not something that belongs on TCM Underground. I guess they just wanted another Susan Seidelman film to pair with the more appropriate Smithereens

True. Desperately Seeking Susan would have been the best fit for Smithereens of her others thematically, but that too was still a major studio production with recognizable names. Last time they aired Smithereens they teamed it up with her Making Mr. Right, also a major studio film. However, all of them do feel smaller and more Underground than She-Devil. (the prospect of Meryl Streep in a film shown on TCM Underground is very .... odd)

Still one of her best performances though.

One Robert Ryan film TCM will be showing is House of Bamboo.   This 20th Century foreign noir film has a fine cast,  with top notch Japaneses actors.    Ryan plays a character named Sandy Dawson.      I don't wish to give the plot away but Sandy's love interest in this film are all over the map.

HOUSE OF BAMBOO is airing on TCM this Sunday evening. That's tomorrow night.

It's part of a theme called Tokyo Crime.

PS:  Thanks to Top Billed for tipping me off.     I had posted that I wished TCM would show House of Bamboo just a few days ago,  without knowing it was scheduled for this Sunday.

Yes, Meryl was great fun in She-Devil.... even if the scene I got the biggest kick of in the film had her in the backseat.... the scene where her mother Sylvia Miles spills all her dirty laundry to People Magazine.
