HITS & MISSES: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow on TCM


Recommended Posts

You're welcome!  I was hoping to see whether I could also find links to any of the other films that had originally been scheduled, but I don't even know what the rest of them are (since those older schedules no longer seem to be accessible anywhere online).  Maybe Bogie56 would remember?

Besides the Bunuel film, there were:

Sombre Verde aka Untouched (1954)

Llevane en tus Brazos (1954)

Puerto de Tentación (1951).

There may have been one or maybe two others but once I refreshed my screen they all disappeared and are replaced by the musicals.

I looked on the web and could not see any subtitles for these films on https://www.opensubtitles.org so maybe, maybe that was the problem TCM had with broadcasting these films?  - Obtaining copies with English subtitles?

NB: I've since read Mr6666's post with all of the Mexican films.  de la Cruz is another Bunuel film that can be purchased on dvd with subtitles.  Victims of Sin may have been on TCM before because I managed to tape a copy of it.

I have never seen this one. Looks like an interesting cast though.

Here's a link to Llévame en tus Brazos on youtube:

Puerto de Tentación:

These are both in 480p (so, borderline watchable, if perhaps not the sharpest prints), but not sure what the quality of TCM's prints would have been, either (which may also have been a factor in their decision to pull them, in addition to the subtitle  issue you mentioned).

Yes, I was looking forward to seeing both of those.  Unfortunately the youtube, and other copies are without English subtitles.

MV5BMmNhZmEwNDctYTA1YS00MTQ0LTg2MmYtOWY4

4 a.m.  No Blade of Grass (1970).  Directed by Cornel Wilde.  I saw this in the theatre when it came out.  I was quite young and thought it was pretty good.  I wonder if I will find it shockingly bad this time around?

I just adore the film's theme song, so wonderfully sung by Roger Whittaker.

This is such a cute and funny film. 

March and Lake really clicked together, you are right, their dislike of each other was not at all obvious in here. Now that's what I call acting.

Cecil Kellaway steals the show as Lake's trouble-making warlock father.

I watched Daisy Kenyon last night and was pleasantly surprised.  It was listed as a love triangle and given two stars, but  I thought it was much more than that and better.

Joan Crawford plays  an artist with  her own apartment which she pays for herself with money she earned from her own business which she happens to be very good at -- she proudly tells someone who implies she's a kept woman.  She is  having a long affair with Dana Andrews who is married.  She is also seeing an Army officer freshly home from the war, played by Henry Fonda.  Naturally we want to root for Henry, who is meltingly loveable, rather than Dana who is a jerk who calls waiters honey bunch. 

But we find they're all three much more complicated than that.  Joan has all sorts of  righteous feminist things to say like when Dana is doing some mansplaining about what she really means and she snaps "Don't tell me what I mean!" and she doesn't let the men make her decisions for her, even though they keep on trying.  Dana Andrews proves to have a good side, particularly when it comes to protecting his children from his abusive wife and Henry leans toward depression and PTSD.  The pace accelerates until we get to a really excellent ending.

Extras, 2005.   Tues. 2:15am (Pacific)   An episode of this very funny series with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant is listed in my Dish Network guide for TCM.  It's weird but they're rarely wrong. We shall see when I record it.
