Yay. Babalu indeed! I recorded this short.  I also recorded the other ones of his films that I hadn't seen or hadn't seen for a long time. And I see my fave movie, The Long Long Trailer, is scheduled again! I wish this movie would get a blu ray release. After seeing a couple of Desi's MGM films, Father Takes a Wife, and Holiday in Havana, thank goodness Desi found television! These films were not showing off his talents properly.  What they do demonstrate however, are Desi's good looks and charisma.  I think he fares better in Holiday in Havana because he's allowed to perform more and seems more assured in himself than he does in Father Takes a Wife

8 p.m.  Hoosiers (1986).  I remember the cameras on Dennis Hopper when they announced his Supporting Actor Oscar nomination.  “Hoosiers?” was his puzzled response.  He was expecting Blue Velvet.

I remember being in a Blockbusters--remember them?--when a woman picked up a video of Hoosiers and said to her companion, "Here's Hoozers! Have you seen Hoozers?" So to me this film will always be Hoozers.

Absolutely love this movie.  The end makes me cry every single time (and I have seen this movie dozens of times.)  Definitely in my Top 10 Films.  If you haven't seen it, don't miss it.

Funny, I recently  posted about this film in the "I Just Watched" thread. While it is uneven IMO, like you, I enjoyed it. My comments here:

The-Yearling-Still-5.jpeg

2 p.m.  The Yearling (1946).  TCM showed one of those MGM period shorts of coming soon films which announced that Spencer Tracy was to play the lead in this film.  I’m glad that it went to Peck as he is outstanding in this.

Monday, Feb. 28, 4:00 AM: The Housemaid (1960).

Korean film that's part noir, part melodrama reminiscent of characters such as Joan Crawford in Queen Bee.  The movie starts off promisingly and goes bonkers in the second half, but if you like Hollywood potboilers of the era, you'll probably love the second half.  Just don't expect any plausible character motivations.

What has happened to this topic? First posting in 3 weeks, and consistent-poster @Bogie56 hasn't been on here since Feb. 28?

Any followers know of a reason? Is a break like this a common occurrence, or cause for concern?

I also really miss @Bogie56's posts. I don't know enough classic movies to recommend anything myself, but regularly look here for inspiration on what to watch. I hope all is well.

All About My Mother Profile Image
 
"Manuela, a nurse and single mother in her late thirties, must come to terms with the tragic loss of her only son, Esteban, when he is struck by a car. She never told Esteban who he was, "your father died long before you were born" was all she ever told him. In memory of her son -- who's his father's namesake -- Manuela leaves Madrid and goes to Barcelona in search of Esteban's father. However, the man that she left behind eighteen years earlier when she was pregnant is now a transvestite named Lola. The search for a man with that name cannot be simple. And indeed it isn't.......

The Artist Profile Image
 
"....Though Hazanavicius is clearly paying his respects to the Silver Age of Hollywood, The Artist does not duplicate the conventions and styles of silent cinema. The pace of the editing is faster, the cinematography crisper, and the camera movement more modern. And, while lead actors Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo echo the expressive, external performing style of silent movies, they avoid the broad arm gestures, widened eyes, and repetitive motions that were typical of the era. The Artist is not a nostalgic exercise in resurrecting a past cinematic era; nor does it promote silent films as superior, because by the end, it embraces the new sound technology as an inevitable evolution.

Instead, The Artist pays homage to cinema by referencing its history and by playfully parroting the conventions, actors, tropes, genres, plots, and techniques of silent film. The characters are composites of Silver Age stars........

Have my DVR set to record this supposedly sensational epic. Very, very excited! Some sources I've read say the film's runtime is actually closer to 7 hours, 20 minutes. I've also seen its release date listed as 1965, 1966, and 1967, so I wonder where the discrepancies originate. Wikipedia sites it as a "film series" from 1966-67.
