I saw this one last time it aired. It's hard to believe it was made in 1980. It looks like a 1970's high school classroom PSA film.

To be fair, 1980 isn't much after the 1970s.

Yes, you're right!  I should have wrote "mid 1970's." That's exactly where it fits in. Of course, I wasn't born yet, though. ;)

Indeed.  I made a short spoof safety film in the mid 70's that featured absolutely stupid accidents on a construction site.  Probably inspired by Monty Python.

8 p.m.  Black Legion (1937).  Pretty decent Bogie picture before he hit it big.  It deals with racism in America.

Coming up in just a few hours today is Deep Valley, a fine film with my favorite Ida Lupino performance. Fay Bainter and Henry Hull are excellent as her parents. Beautifully directed by Jean Negulesco. I hope this will be shown on the Watch TCM app so that more people can see it.

Mourning Becomes Electra is on during the Thursday day schedule. Many people thought Rosalind Russell would win the Oscar for this movie. Then they actually saw the movie.

Both the movie and Roz in this film have their defenders, but this is classic Oscar bait. A prestigious Eugene O'Neill play, unfortunately not very well directed. Roz gives a much better performance in a film noir/domestic melodrama from the same year, The Guilt of Janet Ames, which has not turned up on TCM recently.

It is quite different from the Thalberg MGM Marx Brothers films.  It still owes a lot to the Marx Bros.  Broadway show and as a film it may seem a bit creaky.  But it is well written and still lots of fun.  I envy you a little that you haven't seen it.  When I watched my last unseen Marx Bros. film in a revue house I felt a bit sad half way through because it occurred to me that this was the last one.

She really does have her high points in the film, and the film itself i found to be better than reputation, but its still a long haul of a film.

I’d be more excited If they had not just shown SATANIS on TCM a Few months ago, but I caught it when it aired and it’s pretty good.
