Re: You Only Live Once (1937)

WAIT UNTIL DARK was my first dramatic play, previously I had seen a couple of musicals. Although there's two years between us, my sister and I attended the same high school, Grover Cleveland. One day in October 1966, I came home to tell her that my English teacher singled me out since he knew I was ...

Re: You Only Live Once (1937)

My first viewing of You Only Live Once was on the big screen at the Film Forum, paired with another Sylvia Sydney movie, You and Me (also about an ex-con but this time it's Sylvia) with George Raft. I enjoyed both films quite a lot, the Lang one being the better. I am in the minority in that I am n...

Re: Noir Films

The director of The Lineup , Don Siegel, would return to San Francisco for Dirty Harry . Apparently on the second film, he ran into a beat cop who wasn't too impressed by the Hollywood crowd. They had words while Siegel was shooting The Lineup , and when they ran into each other again over a decade ...

Re: Noir Films

Did anybody watch Riffraff yesterday - or at any other time? Had RKO made this one with Robert Mitchum or Dick Powell in the lead, it would probably be more highly regarded. But an obviously aging Pat O'Brien doesn't exactly do the film any harm, and Anne Jeffreys is there to help him out in the cli...

Re: Good Horse Racing Movies?

And clore, congrats for the win bet on Orb. I'm hoping he'll win the Preakness. Too bad he drew the #1 post. Well, I don't deserve the credit for that, it all goes to the horse. I had posted two hours before the race that I was tossed between Orb and Itsmyluckyday. My criteria for the wager was tha...

Re: Good Horse Racing Movies?

I only found that photo while looking for another one from a driver's license of about 10 years earlier vintage. With much longer hair and a beard, I ended up looking like Charles Manson in that pic.

Re: Good Horse Racing Movies?

Thanks alot for the info on Sporting Blood on the TCM schedule and that great list of horse racing movies--I've only seen some! Say, clore, who's that handsome dude in your avatar? Oh thank you, you're my new best friend. That's me some 30 years ago. Believe it or not, it was my driver's license ph...

Re: Good Horse Racing Movies?

You're welcome - it's one that I've never managed to see, so I'm looking forward to it. And then the next day is The Preakness, but I doubt that I'll be wagering on it. I want Orb to win, but the odds will be too low. I had him in the Derby and we'll never see those odds on him again. Four years ago...

Re: Good Horse Racing Movies?

There's a 1940 film titled SPORTING BLOOD on TCM tomorrow afternoon. No relation to the earlier film of the same title, it stars Robert Young and Maureen O'Sullivan.

Re: Randolph Scott - Tribute

I was happy to be able to finally see Scott's COAST GUARD the other night. Not that it was any great shakes, but there were some convincing effects and the cinematography was quite good for a programmer. Oddly enough, the cinematographer was Lucian Ballard who also shot BUCHANAN RIDES ALONE and RIDE...

Re: Randolph Scott - Tribute

In some cases, it's a matter of reissue prints or early TV prints being issued in black-and-white. Sometimes both - I can recall a friend and I anxiously awaiting a 1967 airing of the 1943 PHANTOM OF THE OPERA on TV and while the credits had the reference to Technicolor, the print was black-and-whit...

Re: Randolph Scott - Tribute

Maybe a color print will show up. For years TCM was airing only the monochrome print of THE CARIBOO TRAIL, another Scott western. Then, a few years ago they premiered a color print.

Scott and Jory are on again this Saturday (5/11) in CANADIAN PACIFIC.

I saw Kurt Russell and his father the other night in a rerun of THE FUGITIVE on Me-TV.
