I even liked Altman's somewhat remake "The Caine Mutiny Trial"

I think you'd like Blackboard Jungle. Richard Brooks' is not only a great director, but a great writer as well.. A good film on school issues.

Tonight has "Roman Holiday" at 9:45pm ET.. I rented it once, but didn't have the time to see it. I love Gregory Peck, it's just too late for me.

Roman Holiday is great.
I'll probably give it a shot.. I rented it before, but watched the 5 others before. I saw one film with Audrey Hepburn, didn't care for her. Must be the name "Hepburn" - but I love Gregory Peck.


Tonight, 2/16/15, at 8pm ET on TCM lies "Anatomy of a Murder" - Jimmy Stewart, Ben Gazzara - really good film on the courts.



Chillerama is on horror channel tonight at 10:45pm and, more importantly, Mona Lisa is on Film4 at 1:45am.

"The Apartment" (Billy Wilder) is on TCM at 8pm ET... I'm not a big fan of Billy Wilders' comedies (though he's a top 10 director for me), but I know a lot of people love this film, or maybe never got the chance to watch it..

Cool Hand Luke - 5:45pm ET on TCM

Really good movie you can watch over and over again...

Btw, the movie "Caged" (1950) is coming on at 1:30pm ETC. Never saw it, but if it's highly recommended, I might see it. Or maybe I could pose a better question. I got "Wolf of Wall Street" after I saw it on a couple of Top 10 lists, so I thought I'd give it a try.



I just seen Caged (1950) recently, a very strong expose on the jail system in the 1950s. And done in an entertaining style. If you watch it, look at the wide camera angles that are used when she is first taken to jail. They add a sense of huge lonely spaces....I should watch that one again!

Interesting, I think I'm going to watch it. They had "I Am A Fugitive... Chain Gang" on this morning, which also great.

Btw, it's Oscar month, where every film is either an Oscar winner or nominee on Turner Classic Movies - not only the best movie channel, but the only one on cable with no commercials.

Well, I better get going soon. Thanks!



I Am A Fugitive... Chain Gang...love, love, love that film. Ohhhh! is Glenda Farell so evil in that film or what? She's said to have been the fastest talker on screen. I swear in some of her movies she can talk a mile a minute.

Yeah, a great film.. That film had a pretty big effect on our prison system. That woman was evil! I notice pre-Brando most actors talked really fast.



It's an early 1930s thing for actors to talk fast and to have them talking at the same time. I think that came about as the new 'talkies' wanted to show how full of dialogue they were.

A great women's prison style, mental institution movie is The Snake Pit (1948). It pairs will with I Am A Fugitive... Chain Gang and Caged.



There's Secondhand Lions, The Alamo and Jarhead on today in Australia.

Any worth a watch?
