When Precious was first released, it was called Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire, so that some of us had a running joke about movies like:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire.

It shows up with the full title on YouTube TV's listing.  Not that it matters, because the film isn't cleared for streaming...

Peter-Sellers-Indian-character-The-Party

“Excuse me sir, but does that include television?”

6:15 p.m.  The Party (1968).  Decidedly un-PC, but funny Peter Sellers film.   I love the touch with the modern watch (above).

8 p.m.  Frankenstein (1931).  I couldn’t get enough of these Universal horror pictures when I was a kid.

And Sunday we'll see the COMPLETE movie, not the one I'd see on Saturday matinees on TV with certain scenes deleted.   I never saw the unedited  movie until I was in my 30's.   :rolleyes:  And had to travel 40 miles to the U-M campus to do so.

9:45 a.m.  Stage Struck (1958).  Sidney Lumet film with Susan Strasberg, Henry Fonda, Christopher Plummer and Joan Greenwood.  One imdb reviewer described it as ‘like watching a train wreck.’  Has me curious.

Looks like they pulled this thing from the bin behind Jim Henson's studio...

Yeah, I definitely get some Sesame Street vibes from that last picture:

Although it also unavoidably reminds me of Mr. Hankey from South Park:

A rather heart-stopping photo of Kate Winslet.  She has that rare ability to seem like an ordinary, approachable person and yet strikingly beautiful at the same time.
