I must be the only person who doesn't think the ending of SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS is sad. I think both Bud and Deanie wound up with good partners, perhaps even partners better suited to them.

There is a DVD set of these four movies which is quite reasonably priced.  We watch them a lot.  Wish she had made more Nancy Drews.

6:15 a.m.  Death In Venice (1971).  An odd time to pick for this Visconti picture unless of course, you ar eon the West Coast.

It would make a good double bill with this 2021 documentary ...

I had no idea that he was the inspiration for Japanese Anime characters.

Bogie, as I was casually scrolling down, I thought it was Jodie Foster! Jodie looks like the "Most Beautiful Boy" as well.

I remember reading that the boy in Death for Venice served as the basis for most of the characters in the graphic shotacon genre of anime during the 70s and 80s.

10:15 p.m.  Under the Volcano (1984).  John Huston adaptation of the Malcolm Lowry novel with Albert Finney.  IMO, the best performance of the year.

The Strange One is on Noir Alley at Midnight tonight (July 2) and again at 10:00 on Sunday.  Interesting movie if you have never seen it.  For more, see Noir Alley thread.

Short films do not appear to be on the schedule but Mare Nostrum has a twenty five minute interval after which will most likely be the Flag (1927) with Francis X. Bushman.  TCM shows that short every July 4th. It is a decent early two strip technicolor film.

The showing of Mare Nostrum (1926) late Sunday was very unusual - the film lasted for the entire 135-minute window that was allocated.  When I watched this film on TCM several years ago it was running at around 102 minutes, but it appears the effective frame rate has now been changed to slow everything down about 25%.  There was also no longer any score to go along with the film Sunday night.  I can only surmise that a new score would be required for the new film duration and so far none has been produced.  The movement of people within the film is now much less choppy and more natural with the new frame rate, but I must say that I greatly prefer to watch the film with an accompaniment.  Watching a film of this length in complete silence takes some getting used to.

If only TCM would give us some indication as to what is going on.  In her introduction, Jacqueline Stewart made no mention of the changes.
