Dean Martin’s birthday

5:30 p.m.  Rio Bravo (1959).  Dino is pretty good in this one.

I think Dean Martin is very good in this one.  The whole cast is pretty good, except for Ricky Nelson.  IMO, he can neither sing nor act.

Dean Martin is featured on Monday, June 7.  At 6 AM ET, it is The Silencers with Martin as Matt Helm.  Not a bad movie if looking for a spy spoof and the best of the four Helm movies that Martin did.  For me, the best is no Sinatra nor other Rat Pack members.

Over the past year I have read all of Donald Hamilton's Matt Helm series and they are fairly good.  Far more serious than the Dean Martin character and the Helm movies.  Far, far fewer women as well.

No, miss it. It stinks.

I agree! LOL. I've only watched half of it so far, but I doubt it will get better. The lead actress is so terrible.... Even for AIP it's beyond cheap. (Diary of a High School Bride)

Tonight at 12:45AM. Be there or record it!

MAMIE and her sister are set up and sent to a Prison Work Farm by 2 redneck cops., run by a corrupt warden. Hijinks ensue. MAMIE's assets are on full display. Very Entertaining B movie! A guilty pleasure of mine.

Got a kick out of RIOT IN JUVENILE PRISON last night.  The only other SCOTT MARLOWE flick I've seen was THE COOL AND THE CRAZY ('58) in which Marlowe plays the new guy in town that gets the local gang "hooked" on marijuana.  :D  What a laugh riot that flick is.  Wish TCM would have showed hat one too.  ;)

Streetcar+Named+Desire+3.jpg?format=1500

8 p.m.  A Streetcar Named Desire (1951).  Stanley Kowalski … a lead or supporting role?

I’m seeing this movie tomorrow night at the Paramount Theater in Austin, TX tomorrow. They just happen to be holding a Classic Film Summer Festival while I’m here for work. I saw “To Catch a Thief” there on Sunday.

The first time I saw this film was at a Revue Cinema.  Let me know what you think about Stanley's part being a supporting one.  I thought it was but of course Brando being a marquee name went into the lead category.

I've seen this film before, but it's been awhile.  I will let you know my thoughts re: Stanley.  It was between this film or On the Waterfront which is showing on Thursday (my last night in Austin).  I've seen 'Waterfront' before in the theater, so I opted for A Streetcar Named Desire instead.  Last week, they were having an entire Hitchcock week (North by Northwest, Psycho, Notorious, To Catch a Thief, Strangers on a Train).  I went with To Catch a Thief because it was the only one of the films I hadn't seen in the theater before and it was on a weekend.
