These are good posts allie, and you're welcome to put them in the Great Movie Alert! thread in the favorites folder, if you'd rather. I think more people might see them there. Also, I'd love to read your comments (I assume you've clipped these from somewhere else, an on-line TV Guide?).

 

In any case, since I'm very familiar with the ones in this last post, let me add my recommendations for a couple of the more obscure titles that others may not have seen: The Half Naked Truth (1932) & What Every Woman Knows (1934). I was planning to include both of these gems in my post to the Great Movie Alert! next Tuesday.

How to Draw a Bunny (2002)

Sundance Channel Apr 10 01:30pm

 

The story of the life of artist Ray Johnson is cloaked in mystery not only at the moment of his death, but also throughout a career that was difficult to know and to understand. As one of the seminal figures in the Pop Art era, Johnson is known as the founding father of mail art and as a collagist extraordinaire. But, overshadowed by those like Warhol who manipulated that world in a very dissimilar manner, he was also a reclusive and sometimes enigmatic figure who has been called New York's most famous unknown artist, but who challenged the commercial and critical establishment.

 

Directors: John Walter, John W. Walter .

Producers: Lianne Halfon, John Malkovich, Russell Smith, Russell J. Smith , Stephen Apicella, Rocky Collins, Andrew Moore, Andrew L. Moore , Kevin Foxe.

Trivia for

Island of Lost Souls (1933)

One of the film's uncredited actors, 'Joe Bonomo' , nearly drowned during filming. He fell into a water tank and the foam rubber in his costume soaked up water, causing him to sink.

 

'Joe Bonomo' , who starred as one of the man-beasts, was also Lon Chaney's stunt double in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923).

 

This was Charles Laughton's first starring role in a U.S. film.

 

Charles Laughton claimed that he based his Dr. Moreau appearance on that of his dentist.

 

Charles Laughton already knew how to use a whip. He learned to use one for a previous stage role. His teacher was a London street performer.

 

The shooting location for Moreau's mysterious uncharted island was actually Catalina.

 

After doing this film, Charles Laughton claimed that he could not go to a zoo for the rest of his life.

 

The identities of the actors who played "Pig Man" and "Owl Man" are unknown.

 

In response to British censors, who claimed the film was "against nature", Elsa Lanchester (Mrs. Charles Laughton) is said to have stated: "Of course it's against nature. So's Micky Mouse!"

 

Both Alan Ladd and Randolph Scott have bit parts in this film.

 

The filmmakers wanted an unknown actress to play Lota, the Panther Woman. Kathleen Burke, their selection, was working as a dentist's assistant at the time. It was her first film role ever.

 

Cast: Charles Laughton, Bela Lugosi, Richard Arlen.

"Hara-Kiri" is terrific. I saw it on a movie screen about 20 years ago and was deeply impressed. It reminds me a bit of "High Noon" in that it just builds up an incredible amount of tension before the end.

Thanks for the IFC tips! I get so busy keeping up with TCM, I never even look at other channels. But I am thrilled to have taped BLACK SUNDAY, and my fiance and I laughed a lot watching FEMALE TROUBLE last night. TCM is still home, but I'll try to keep an eye on the IFC as well from now on. Thanks again!
