The Wicker Man is an absolutely brilliant film. I hope they air original full-length cut and not the edited American version. Viewers should be treated to the whole thing. And Britt Ekland is always a pleasure to behold.

The Glass Menagerie (1950)(Not on DVD or VHS)

Fox Movie Channel Feb 27 02:00pm

Movies, 107 Mins.

 

*** (Rated NR)

 

An aging Southern belle inspires her son and prepares her disabled daughter for a gentleman caller. From the Tennessee Williams play.

 

Reportedly, Tennessee Williams intensely disliked this film version of his play because a final touch not found in the original was added at the very end, just before the fadeout, against Williams's wishes. This final touch implied a totally different, much more upbeat ending to the story.

 

Cast: Jane Wyman, Kirk Douglas, Gertrude Lawrence, Arthur Kennedy, Ralph Sanford, Ann Tyrrell, John Compton, Gertrude Graner, Sarah Edwards, Chris Alcaide, Sean McClory.

Director: Irving Rapper.

Producers: Jerry Wald, Charles K. Feldman.

Goofs for

Lord of the Flies (1963)

 

* Factual errors: As Piggy is nearsighted, his spectacles could not be used as a "magnifying glass" to light a bonfire: lenses for nearsightedness would scatter, not concentrate, the sun's rays. (This error occurs in the original novel and was perpetuated in the 1990 remake.)

 

* Continuity: When Simon leaves the shelters on the beach, he is shirtless. Yet when he watches Jack and the hunters kill the pig, he is wearing a clean, white shirt. Later when we see Simon again, he is shirtless once again.

 

* Crew or equipment visible: After the vote for chief, a stake is visible in the sand saying "Anthony M", telling Anthony McCall-Judson, one of the actors, where in the group he is supposed to sit.

 

* Continuity: The boys go on the monster hunt, and leave Piggy behind to take care of the smaller boys. As Piggy looks out to sea, you can see (from behind, at a 3/4 angle) that his left lens is intact. This is after Jack had already broken it in a fight previously.

Hi Nav1:

 

I know but I like being "Downstairs" instead of "Upstairs" out of the way of noise. I can't change the title of the thread and I don't want to start a new one so I'm here. The problem is that the quality of films on all the channels are always changing and at the moment Fox Movie Channel has the best films. Later it may be some other channel. I'm not interested in sudo-definitions of film categories, just great films.

 

(If I have DVD recorded a film that I like, I may not list it. I only list films I am planning on recording, I like Rocky Horror, put I have it so would not list it).

 

Allie
