Title: Upcoming TCM schedule
Post by: Ben Tyreen on October 01, 2007, 11:09:16 AM
  With all the good movies out there and on tv, I thought it might be a good idea to have a running post that says when TCM or whatever channel is airing a western worth watching.  That way anyone who wants to watch them can do so or tape them.  Might be a good way to generate Movie Night or the new film discussion board.

  So, anyways here goes.

  Tuesday October 2
  1:15 P.M. (eastern) They Died With Their Boots On (1941): Romanticized biography of General George Armstrong Custer and his last stand.  Cast: Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Arthur Kennedy.. Dir: Raoul Walsh.. BW-140 mins, TV-PG

  3:45 P.M. (eastern) Custer Of The West (1968): The flamboyant Cavalry officer courts disaster when he fights the Sioux and Cheyenne tribes.  Cast: Robert Shaw, Mary Ure, Ty Hardin.. Dir: Robert Siodmak.. C-141 mins, TV-PG

  6:15 P.M. (eastern) Geronimo (1962): A defiant Apache warrior tries to unite his tribe against the U.S. Army.  Cast: Chuck Connors, Kamala Devi, Ross Martin.. Dir: Arnold Laven.. C-103 mins, TV-PG

  I've seen TDWTBO and its well worth a watch.  Caught Custer of the West this summer, it's got some good locations in Italy that will be familiar to spaghetti fans.  And Geronimo, I'm interested in seeing just to see The Rifleman as Geronimo!  That's gotta be interesting.  :)

Very good idea. I've seen some people post schedules, but none of them have ever had the suggestion of keeping it going. So, then their thread would become insignificant. :(.

  I checked the TCM website and sure enough, October's star of the month is Henry Fonda!  Guess we'll have to check each Thursday what movies of his are on.  As for those westerns, I've seen all of those but WTHT and The Rounders.  But any western with Fonda and Glenn Ford, I will most certainly give a try. :)

  Well, I watched Custer of the West and Geronimo today.  COTW is still good in a "so bad, it's good" type thing.  And Geronimo....wow, I really didn't like it.  Don't even know where to start.

  I didn't catch all of The Ox-Bow Incident and My Name is Nobody, but I've seen both before and enjoyed them.  I was able to watch Welcome to Hard Times and most of The Rounders (taped the last half hour).  WTHT was really good in a weird sort of way.  Kinda quirky western more typical of the 70s than late 60s, but still very entertaining.  Henry Fonda leads a good cast, but I'll save that for the Review the Last Movie You've Seen post.  :)

  No westerns to speak of for this week's schedule, they're showing a lot of horror movies for some reason ;).  But still, there's a few movies worth mentioning.  Looks like a revenge theme Nov. 2 with both Get Carter (the original with Michael Caine, looking forward to this) and Point Blank with Lee Marvin seeking revenge for getting double-crossed.

  Also a movie on called The Secret of Santa Vittoria starring Anthony Quinn.  The description says "During WWII, Italian villagers hide their wine from the German army."  I might have to give this one a try.  :D

  I don't know if there's any Man from Uncle fans here, but TCM is devoting almost a whole day to movies with Napoleon Solo and Ilya Kuryakin tomorrow, Tuesday.  I saw the whole series is going to be released on DVD soon, but I'm going to give the movies a try.  Robert Vaughn and David McCallum together should be pretty cool.

  I'm not sure to be honest, but the TCM schedule has eight movies in their listing for tomorrow.  Maybe it's two-part episodes cut together to make a feature length?  I know other shows did that.

I could be wrong too.

I seem to remember "The Spy with My Face" title but not any of the others, they are all around 90 minutes though so they could have been made for TV.

I was searching the December schedule little bit.  Noticed TCM on 12/9 is showing at 12:00 PM Ace In The Hole again.  At midnight the silent film feature is The Iron Horse.  Another day that caught my eye was 12/17 they're running Mann's Man Of The West again at 10:00 PM  followed by Lawman at 12:00 AM.

  For John Ford fans out there, Two Rode Together will be on TCM December 8 at 2:15 PM eastern time.  It's one of the few Ford non-silent westerns I haven't seen, and I'm looking forward to it! ;D

Two Rode Together (1961) 
Two tough westerners bring home a group of settlers who have spent years as Comanche hostages.
Cast: James Stewart, Richard Widmark, Shirley Jones. Dir: John Ford. C-109 mins, TV-PG

Speaking of John Ford movies, The Iron Horse is on Sunday night as their weekly silent feature.

Also, they're showing a trio of really bad horror movies tonight or early Saturday morning depending on how you look at it.  It starts at 2 AM with Attack of the Crab Monsters, followed by a classic, The Killer Shrews at 3:15, and The Green Slime at 4:30.  They're all probably really bad, but in that entertaining, laugh out loud bad way. ;D

Man Of The West (1958)   
A reformed outlaw is among the hostages when his former colleagues rob a train.
Cast: Gary Cooper, Lee J. Cobb, Julie London. Dir: Anthony Mann. C-99 mins, TV-PG Monday at 9 PM central

Lawman (1971)   
A by-the-books sheriff courts disaster when he takes on a corrupt town boss.
Cast: Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan, Lee J. Cobb. Dir: Michael Winner. C-99 mins, TV-MA  Monday at 11 PM central

Both really good examples of what a dark American western can be.  Highly recommend both of them.

  Sorry for the late, really late, warning but TCM has a full lineup of westerns this afternoon beginning with They Came to Cordura (average at best), McLintock, True Grit, and Red River.  Then late Saturday night/early Sunday morning Gunfight at the OK Corral is on.
Title: Re: Upcoming TCM schedule

Red River is a classic, maybe Wayne's best performance.  And his catch of the knife should be on ESPN top ten.

Heads-up from CinemaRetro:

Quote
Stalwart Cinema Retro scribe Tom Lisanti has just provided a humanitarian gesture for bad movie lovers everywhere with his reminder that Turner Classic Movies (USA) will have a rare showing of Otto Preminger's bizarre 1968 hippie comedy Skidoo at 2:00AM eastern time late Friday night/Saturday morning. This is the Gone With the Wind of terrible movies and one that did irrepairable damage to the once-esteemed director's career. The eclectic cast is a Who's Who of Hollywood royalty- all misused in a mind-boggling comedy about mafia hit men interacting with drug-crazed hippies. Highlights include Jackie Gleason getting stoned on LSD, Groucho Marx in his last feature film as a sex-crazed mafia don known as God, and Carol Channing running amok in a see-through bra (it's even worse than it sounds!) Our own Richard Kiel has a bit role in the film and tells Cinema Retro that when the movie "premiered" in Hollywood, he stopped in to see it and was literally the only person in the theater. Skidoo has never been released on home video and is rarely shown theatrically, so make sure you've got your video recorders set for this historic broadcast. They truly don't make 'em like this anymore!

  TCM Underground is showing two well-known cult classics late tonight, Death Race 2000 and Rollerball, for any fans of the movies.

  Also, Saturday night is a themed night dealing with prisoners of war, headed off by Bridge on the River Kwai and followed by The Hill, a truly underappreciated film with Sean Connery and a great cast, and The Great Escape.  Don't need to add anything there, it's a classic and I feel bad for you if you haven't seen it.  O0

Monday night is filled with movies that I have wanted to see for quite some time:

It runs from 11 PM to 7 Am US Central time, there's the kicker.

The Naked City
White Heat
The Asphalt Jungle
In Cold Blood (no excuse for me not to have seen this yet)

Title: Re: Upcoming TCM schedule
Post by: PowerRR on February 24, 2008, 04:37:47 PM
Only one I've seen of those (and own) is The Asphalt Jungle. Worth worth the viewing.

I also started to watch In Cold Blood once which looked very interesting. Still haven't seen all of it.

Anyone else get the TV Guide for TCM? It's fairly cheap for an annual subscription and a great help in keeping track of all the great movies TCM shows.

 Not much in the way of westerns this week, but when they get here, they're good ones.  Early Friday morning, Bad Company is on TCM, caught this in January and really liked it.  A 70s revisionist western about teenage boys heading west to avoid being drafted in the Civil War.

 But the real treat is that Friday night is the theme of "Directed by Sergio Leone" w/ 3 movies being shown, Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Colossus of Rhodes.  Definitely looking forward to CoR! O0

 And I have to mention, my namesake would be upset otherwise, Major Dundee Saturday at 12:30 PM Eastern time. They use the Caliendo score, but it's the Extended Version so that's always a bonus. :)

Two TCM picks by Martin Scorsese....They’re being televised in early morning hours....if interested.... maybe for taping.

Stars In My Crown (1950), a western directed by Jacques Tourneur with Joel McCrea.  Airs Easter Sunday March 23 in the morning (6:00 Eastern).
Scorsese review:
http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPage.jsp?assetId=P4530020


Mafioso (1962) by Alberto Lattuada.  Being shown on TCM Imports on March 31st at 2:15 AM.  This has just been released on DVD by Criterion....like in the last week or so.  Hasn’t been broadcast much in the States.  Supposed to be very good. 
http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPage.jsp?assetId=P4530022


On Saturday March 29th quite a few westerns....from late morning to evening. Three by John Wayne starting at 10:00 AM (Eastern).  Two early ones from the thirties first.  Randy Rides Alone (1934), Sagebrush Trail (1934) and then Tall In The Saddle (1944).

Afterward at 2:00 PM (Eastern) they have Dmytryk’s Alvarez Kelly (1966) with Holden and Widmark. Colorado Territory (1949) directed by Raoul Walsh with Joel McCrea follows.  After that block of Westerns they have Support Your Local Sheriff and two McQueens....The Great Escape and The Thomas Crown Affair.  All of which they do show often.

  TCM is doing a cool themed month called "Ride the Rails" where they show 29 films related to railroads in some way or another.  Check their website for the complete listing, but I thought I'd point out Wednesday is a western themed railroad night with a handful of westerns, some rather good.

  The Great Train Robbery starts things off (never seen it, but I'll give it a watch) at 7 pm central, the Long Rider, a good take on the Northfield raid by the James/Younger gang, Colorado Territory, The Five Man Army, a personal favorite of mine in the spaghetti category, and wraps up early Thursday morning with How the West Was Won.

  Now if only we could get TCM to do more western themed months, like the Spaghetti month they did four or five years ago.  Good stuff. O0

Post by: dave jenkins on April 14, 2008, 09:32:52 PM
Again, credit the mise-en-scene to Stanley Cortez. One need look only at some of the previous films he'd photographed (The Magnificent Ambersons, Secret Beyond the Door) to recognize in Hunter his signature style. This being Laughton's only film, it was quite natural for the director to defer to his more experienced cameraman:
Quote
Charles wold be so marvelous, he would say to me, "Stan, this is where we need fantasy, this is where we need so-and-so and so-and-so . . ." And then he'd walk away and leave me alone, and I would get these effects. He made a remark to me once when we were on the sequence of going down the river, he used the expression, "Fairy tale." And when he saw the rushes, he said, "My God, how did you do that?" I said, "Because you used the word 'fairy tale.'"
(Stanley Cortez in Jones 273).

On the other hand, the turtle may in fact have been Laughton's idea. Here's what the second unit director says:
Quote
This is my copy of the script . . . with all my notes for the second unit. So, basically every note here is something which came out of my discussions with Charles. We just went over it page by page, and I made little notes, as you see. Here's: "Animal picture book. Not John's point of view. A turtle waddling, moving in muddy water." I never got that shot. I think they hired a turtle in Los Angeles. "Nursery shot with turtle. Clean turtle up," it says.
(Terry Sanders in Jones 262)
Title: Re: Upcoming TCM schedule
Post by: Groggy on April 14, 2008, 10:55:40 PM
Cool. I guess that means I win.

But whose idea was the juxtaposed shot of the frog watching the kids drift down river?
Title: Re: Upcoming TCM schedule
Post by: dave jenkins on April 14, 2008, 11:57:15 PM
The general idea of using the animals was Laughton's. The execution of particular shots belonged to the cinematographers and the special effects people.
Quote
(The optical effects team often created two slightly varied versions of a shot from which Laughton could choose. The shot of the children's boat in the background with two rabbits in the foreground is actually not a double but a triple exposure--they only had one rabbit, so the magic of cinema allowed this versatile mammal to portray both creatures.)
(Jones 261)

I assume the shot with the frog was a double exposure; Cortez probably had overall responsibility for such things (the technique was used on Ambersons, and for that matter, Citizen Kane).

 Thanks for hijacking my thread, fellas.  Go settle this in the Groggy vs. DJ thread. O0

 As for TCM, they're having Gene Wilder night tonight, Tuesday, with two airings of Blazing Saddles.  I've probably seen the whole movie, but never in one sitting so I'll definitely check it out.  Also another Mel Brooks classic, The Producers.

Hey Captain, we're not arguing, merely discussing a film that was recently on TCM. :D

Someone on IMDB told me Ryan's Daughter was on TCM tonight. They were either mistaken or lying.

 Late notice but Custer of the West is on TCM Saturday afternoon starting at 1:30 eastern time.  It's not a great movie, but Robert Shaw was always an interesting actor to watch and he's no disappointment here.  It's a very different take on Custer and worth a watch if for nothing else than some familiar spanish locations.

  TCM's also showing The Devil's Brigade after CotW, which should be added to our list of guy's guys movies.

 I caught a clip of a May preview on TCM and thought one of their themed nights would go over well here, cough rrpower cough.  Every Sunday and Wednesday evening will be Frank Sinatra night with 40 of his movies and music specials.  It's kind of a shame they're not showing my favorite of his, Von Ryan's Express (owning rights maybe?) but there's a lot of good movies airing.

 I can vouch for a handful of them but there's some I'm looking forward to see, including Dirty Dingus Magee, 4 for Texas (seen parts but not the whole thing), and Sergeants 3, a Rat Pack western, and Cast a Giant Shadow with a Sinatra cameo.  Here's the link to the schedule, enjoy. :)

  On Saturday, three John Wayne movies are on with a good variety from his long career, including Wake of the Red Witch, Hondo, and Brannigan.  All worth checking out.

 And late Saturday night, TCM's airing New York, New York and Scorsese on Scorsese beginning at 11:15 for all you Marty fans out there. O0

Tonight TCM is devoting a lot of their programming to spotlighting French director Abel Gance.  They're not showing Napoleon.  I guess they have a documentary on him, Abel Gance:The Charm Of Dynamite (1968),  followed by digital restorations of two of his early silent films J'Accuse (1919) and La Roue (1923).  The films are pretty long, particularly La Roue.  It looked like it could be interesting.  Might try to check some of it out...at least the documentary.

On Monday May 19th, Tim Roth is Robert Osborne's guest.  He selected four films for the evening, two of which are David Lean films.  The first film in the lineup he chose is Hobson's Choice.  Seems that one isn't shown that often.  I haven't seen it.  Brief Encounter follows.  He also picked Roman Holiday and Cathy Come Home.  Would be interesting to watch to hear him talk about his selections. 

After his picks, they're staying on a British note with This Sporting Life with Richard Harris.  I've been wanting to see that one again.  It's on early in morning though.  :-\

 As part of the Frank Sinatra scheduling, Dirty Dingus Magee is playing bright and early Thursday morning at 6:45 AM eastern.  I've only caught the beginning, but I'll give it a try.  Even if it's horrible, it is only 91 minutes. O0

 Then Thursday night two very good westerns are on in a tribute to Jerry Goldsmith scores, starting off with Kirk Douglas in Lonely Are the Brave, a classic modern western and a must-see, and followed by Hour of the Gun, the story of what happened to the Earps after the OK Corral.

 Friday seems to be a Henry Fonda themed afternoon, leading off with Fort Apache and followed by The Rounders and Welcome to Hard Times.  Rounders is more of a comedy but still good and Hard Times was a different sort of western but it boasts an excellent cast.

 And wrapping up the week, Saturday has 3 westerns including Comanche, an ok B-western that's a beautiful film, Support Your Local Gunfighter and later in the night, Seven Men from Now, a highly entertaining Randolph Scott western.

  So many westerns to watch, so little time. ;D

  That sounds about right.  It's a good movie and all but Peckinpah did have other movies.  I'll give TCM credit, they have shown Major Dundee a handful of times, but what about The Wild Bunch, The Getaway, Junior Bonner?  Expand your horizons TCM! ;D

  As for this week's schedule, there's some good westerns other than High Country.
5:15pm Wednesday eastern time  Stagecoach (1939)   
A group of disparate passengers battle personal demons and each other while racing through Indian country.
Cast: John Wayne, Claire Trevor, George Bancroft. Dir: John Ford. BW-96 mins, TV-G 

Thursday is a 70s western theme with Monte Walsh, the website says in LBX, Bad Company, A Man Called Horse, High Plains Drifter, and Posse with Kirk Douglas.

Opening TCM's Summer Under the Stars month, Friday is Michael Caine day with a good selection of his movies including The Billion Dollar Brain, a Harry Palmer movie, The Eagle Has Landed, The Battle of Britain, A Bridge too Far, and Zulu among others.

And then Saturday is Charlie Chaplin day, I know we've got some fans around here of Chaplin. :)

No noir fan should miss this. Peggy Cummins is one of the all-time great femmes fatale; this film greatly influenced  Bonnie and Clyde. IMO, John Dall was miscast here, preventing this from being a great movie (I rated it a 7.5/10), but every noir fan should see this at least once, mainly for the spectacular performance by Cummins

Yes, tonight is "Epic Western" night on TCM. I've never liked The Searchers. How the West Was Won and The Magnificent Seven are both 8/10 (there are several dvd versions of TM7; one of them has a commentary by Frayling, I bought that one just for the commentary, it is a great, great commentary). And GBU is one of my 3 favorite Westerns ever (the other 2 being some obscure movies you probably never heard of, called For a Few Dollars More, and Once Upon a Time in the West. #4 is an equally obscure movie called A Fistful of Dollars, aka Fistful of Dollars aka For a Fistful of Dollars)

I saw How the West Was Won last time TCM showed it; they used "smilebox" format to recreate the  Cinerama experience (if you are unfamiliar with the "Smilebox," here are some screencaps from Beaver http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film2/DVDReviews40/how_the_west_was_won_blu-ray.htm )



The original dvd had awful defects that were caused by turning the Cinerama image into a flat image; thankfully, those have been completely cleaned up. Other than a brief moment or two, the picture looks absolutely perfect.

Since I have already seen the Smile box, I am hoping that TCM shows the flat version tonight (the only time I saw the flat version was the old one which looked terrible, I have never seen the restored flat version). As you see on Beaver, the blu ray offers both versions.
(Here were my thoughts after seeing it on TCM last time http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=269.msg160332#msg160332 )


Title: Re: Upcoming TCM schedule
Post by: drinkanddestroy on December 12, 2012, 12:00:40 AM
In Robert Osborne's introduction,  he said the GBU budget was $1 million, which is more than double the budgets of FAFDM and FOD combined.
However, according to Frayling, the budgets were as follows: GBU $1.3 million; FAFDM $600,000; and FOD $200,000. 

(I believe in the meeting with UA executives, Luciano Vincenzoni asked for and was granted a $1 million budget, but Frayling quotes someone (I think it's Grimaldi or Leone) saying that ultimately it was made for $1.3 million. I have to check STDWD again).

Anyway, if Frayling is correct about the budgets of the movies, then Osborne was wrong about the amount of GBU's budget; and whether the real amount is $1 mil or $1.3 mil, it's not more than double the budgets of FOD and FAFDM combined.

Otherwise, Osborne had nice introductions and endings as usual. In the ending, he spoke about Leone's meticulous research  of the Civil War; and said that "It's said that Leone went so far as to often sit in his director's chair with Brady photos in his lap for reference."


The GBU print looked beautiful.

They did include the Cave scene.

I think Cooper was good, Jurado was awesome. It's not typical that you see a woman in that sort of role, especially in a Western, and she was really good in it.

I'm no feminist, but I really love it when there's a woman's role in a movie beyond something to be "had" by the male star, beyond "the Madonna or the whore." That's why I loved Jurado's role in High Noon -- although I am NOT a fan of High Noon -- and I loved Barbara Bel Geddes in Vertigo

yup,  those 2 are among my favorite scenes in movie history, maybe THE 2 favorite.
 The Trio is my favorite scene ever. The interplay of music, image, editing, just unbelievable. Only Sergio Leone could take something as simple and common in the Western as the "final shootout," and re-work it into an opera. I could get emotional just watching the beauty of that scene ;)

During "The Trio" I have a hard time staying in my seat.

For me it's definitely the trio, ecstasy of gold and the scene between Tuco and his brother.
Title: Re: Upcoming TCM schedule
Post by: Senza on February 27, 2013, 04:04:37 PM
I think the ecstasy of gold sequence reminds me of being a little kid, where you finally get/buy something that you've always wanted and have been waiting for. When the day would come for me to get something like that, I'd arrive at the store, and run to the shelves to where I last remembered it to be, and there's this feeling of joy and excitement, you're full of energy - kind of like how Tuco is in that scene. I think that's why I like it so much, and the music just pumps that up by about 10000000 times.

Post by: drinkanddestroy on February 27, 2013, 04:31:19 PM
my previous comments about The Trio are also applicable to The Ecstasy of Gold: a simple bit of plot that probably is one line in the script, which most movies would be over with in 30 seconds, and Sergio Leone stretches it... stretches it... stretches it, into a majestic opera. Many movies conceive of big epic scenes in big moments, but Leone made what is seemingly a minor, unremarkable line of script into something so much bigger. Ditto for the opening scene in OUATITW, and sooooo many other scenes in Leone's cinema.

I've never watched any of the old Western TV series, but I see that they show a lot of them on Encore Westerns Channel.
Marshall Dillon -- Gunsmoke; Bonanza; Rawhide; Laredo;  Have Gun, Will Travel; Lawman; The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp

Are any of these Western tv series really good?

 I'd be glad to dvr some episodes and start watching 'em if anyone can assure me of a particular show that's good...?

Thanks  O0

I'm not sure who has the rights to OUATIA, whether it's WB or Ladd or some combination. But they definitely show WB movies on TCM all the time.

As for OUATITW and DYS, those are Paramount and MGM, right? Doesn't TCM show movies from those studios all the time?

May 30 in primetime is "Clint Eastwood as Director" night http://www.tcm.com/schedule/index.html?tz=est&sdate=2013-05-30

In addition to airing Bird and White Hunter Black Heart, they will be showing (for what I believe is the very first time) a new documentary by Richard Schickel about Eastwood as director, called Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story

http://www.tcm.com/this-month/article/612570%7C0/Clint-Eastwood-as-Director-5-30.html


EASTWOOD DIRECTS: THE UNTOLD STORY
THURSDAY MAY, 30 2013 AT 08:00 PM
THURSDAY MAY, 30 2013 AT 11:15 PM


"He's one of the most successful filmmakers in history, he's a brilliant actor, and he just continues to do his thing. And he's laughing all the way to the movies." - Steven Spielberg

Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story (2013) makes the case for what most film critics and many filmgoers have known for years: Over the course of one of the longest active careers in Hollywood, Clint Eastwood has transformed himself from western movie icon to Hollywood superstar to one of the greatest and most intelligent directors of our time.

The 65-minute documentary from longtime film critic, film historian, documentary filmmaker, and Eastwood biographer Richard Schickel plays like a companion piece to his 2010 documentary The Eastwood Factor. Where that earlier production profiles Eastwood the actor and icon, Eastwood Directs focuses on his legacy as the director of over thirty films, with special attention paid to a few of his greatest and most important accomplishments: his directorial debut on Play Misty for Me (1971), the films that earned Eastwood his Oscars® for Best Director and Best Picture, Unforgiven (1992) and Million Dollar Baby (2004), his ambitious biographical portrait of J. Edgar (2011).

You might say that the evidence speaks for itself, but Schickel promises "the untold story" and he follows through. There are new interviews with Eastwood, who is his usual modest self as he shares stories from the set but generous with his praise as he discusses his greatest influences as a young director, Sergio Leone (who made him an international movie star in the Dollars films and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, 1966) and Don Siegel (Coogan's Bluff [1968] and Dirty Harry [1971] among others).

Less shy are filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg and actors Meryl Streep, Gene Hackman, Hal Holbrook, Hillary Swank, Kevin Bacon, Marcia Gay Hardin, Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, and Morgan Freeman. They have no such modesty when they discuss Eastwood's legacy or, in the case of his co-stars, his gifts as a director of actors. Streep describes his approach to directing actors as "a seductive diffidence" and marvels that Eastwood and his stars line up with the crew and the extras at lunch. Longtime collaborators discuss the loyalty Eastwood commands thanks to his egalitarian set. Revealing behind-the-scenes footage confirms that Eastwood is a confident and easy-going filmmaker who treats his cast and crew with respect. Schickel gives us a sense of what it's like to be on an Eastwood set, and it's as different from the Hollywood cliché of spoiled stars and tyrannical directors as you'll find.

With a career as long and rich as Eastwood's, some major films are unfortunately only touched upon (such as Bird [1988], one of Eastwood's most personal projects, and A Perfect World, 1993), but Schickel makes his point. Eastwood has not only made his mark as a major American filmmaker, he has consistently redefined what a "Clint Eastwood" movie is over the course of a career that spans more than fifty years as an actor and forty years as a director. Martin Scorsese, as perceptive a filmmaker and critic as we have, sums up his evolution as a filmmaker: "If the stories are becoming more complicated, the style doesn't. That's the difference."

"I like the way he operates. I want to be like Clint." - Tommy Lee Jones

I started watching my dvr to see some of those Truffaut movies I recorded over the past few Friday nights, but I noticed on a couple of them that the subtitles were way too low on the screen and the bottom line of the subtitle was partly or very nearly cut off; and certainly, when there is a letter that partially below a line (like a  "g," "j," or "p"), you can't even see the bottom part of that letter at all.. It's really annoying, I think I'm just gonna have to delete the movies that have this problem, and get the dvd's. I noticed this problem specifically on The Soft Skin and Mississippi Mermaid. There are a few others I still have on my dvr, I'll have to see if they have the same problem. (No, I didn't adjust any settings on my tv and don't plan to screw around with it).

Anyone else notice this problem?

Today and tomorrow, (Monday 9/30 and Tuesday 10/1), TCM has a great lineup of films in prime time, as part of its "The Story of Film" series. Films include Citizen Kane, The Best Years of Our Lives, Stagecoach, Double Indemnity, Bicycle Thieves, Gun Crazy, The Big Sleep, and Rome, Open City. I've seen all these films at least once with the exception of Rome, Open City; a great couple of nights to just sit back on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and tune to TCM  :)

(go to tcm.com, it's the top-left tab, called "Watch TCM")

I counted over 70 movies, and some are damn good ones. So, this is pretty cool  :)

Has this always been around, or is it a new thing?


Is there any way I can stream these thru my blu-ray player to my TV, like I do with Netflix streaming? or can I only watch these movies on my computer?

BTW, I checked it out the streaming today. In order to access the TCM on demand, you need to have one of the following cable/satellite providers: AT&T, Cox, Verizon, Optimum, Charter, Dish, Sudden Link, or X Finity (but they say new ones are being added every day). Then, you follow the steps to log in with your user/id password from your cable provider.

I don't think I am gonna connect my laptop to my tv; I am only gonna use TCM's streaming when I am away from home, if I am traveling and not near a tv but near an Internet connection, then I can use TCM's streaming to watch movies on my laptop. When I'm home, I have enough ways to watch on my tv (dvr'ing TCM movies, renting dvd's from Netflix) so that I don't need to use TCM streaming when I am home.

Anyway... has anyone watched movies on IFC Channel? Is it good? I'm not necessarily talking about the lineup; that, I can look up for myself. I mean like, do they show movies in proper aspect ratios (as TCM does), or do they just show everything in 1.78:1 (as crappy AMC does). I never watch AMC or Fox Movie Channel; I watch TCM all the time.... Is IFC worth paying any attention to?

I've watched it at times, mostly for films I wouldn't have payed to go see, or stopping at while flipping through the channels, I'm not anal about aspect ratios except for Westerns, Epics, or outdoor adventures, if its some RomCom, SyFy (spaceships against deep space, are you gonna miss a couple of inches of black star studded space) or talking head drama, who cares. If its something worth owning I'll buy it, its good for sampling what's out there.

Title: Re: Upcoming TCM schedule
Post by: drinkanddestroy on July 30, 2014, 03:18:07 PM
I think it's nice that they have days for people that weren't major stars. You want them to just have days for John Wayne, James Cagney, Henry Fonda, and Elizabeth Taylor et. al.? How many major stars like that have there been? You just wanna see those again and again?
Firstly, there are some good actors/actresses that weren't major stars, and have good performances/movies and shouldn't be forgotten. E.g., I like Gladys George very much.
And secondly, just because it is  someone's "day" doesn't mean they are the star of the movie; they often show the day's honoree in everything from small early roles to later bigger roles. So even if you are watching the movies on a non-star's day, you'll still see plenty of major stars. E.g., I am sure (without looking) that on Thelma Ritter's day, they will show PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET. So you'll still get to see Richard Widmark and Jean Peters even though it's not their day.
So, you get to see big stars anyway, and the "day" brings attention to some lesser-known, and perhaps unfairly so, actors - and supporting players are just as important to Hollywood history as stars.
So, IMO, Summer Under the Stars is a wonderful thing, no matter how brightly the "star" shined ;)

Wow, I caught a big chunk of Rhapsody in Blue today and was really impressed. I came in just as they were launching into the title tune--and sat amazed as they performed the entire work (which, one character mentions, clocks at 14:05). Fourteen riveting minutes that do not advance the plot (except for the fact that the creation and performance of great Gershwin music IS the plot). I was also pretty jazzed (heh, didja see what I did there?) by the fact that Robert Alda seemed to be really playing the piano (rarely, if ever, do we see just the hands--we usually get full body shots where the hands are not hidden). How is it I've never seen this great film before? I guess Alexis Smith Day has paid off after all.

btw, I saw this five-and-a-half minute video of the making of the chariot race on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7mXNuNS5Rc I wonder if this is the same video they will be showing on TCM this morning

In Cult of TCM, Front Row Is Lined With Filmmakers

By Jake Coyle, AP Film Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Turner Classic Movies, that bastion of black-and-white, holds a unique place on the dial and in the hearts of cinephiles. In a continuous, commercial-free stream, much of the history of Hollywood is on view, 24/7, for sampling and binging — an uncorrupted corner of celluloid obsession that flickers day and night with Buster Keaton shorts, Robert Ryan series and Ernst Lubitsch marathons.

But for many filmmakers, TCM isn't just a favorite channel, it's their lifeblood. Among directors from Martin Scorsese to Paul Thomas Anderson, it's a common refrain that Turner Classic is a constant source of inspiration and a beloved background in their lives.

"I tend to have it on in the kitchen," said Anderson ("There Will Be Blood"). "I have a small TV in the kitchen, a great old Sony Trinitron. And that's probably where I see it the most. It's a comfort blanket. It's like a pacifier."

While Anderson might have once watched a string of films on TCM, he now has four children and is more likely to catch 15 minutes of something while making breakfast. But he says even a small bite of a great film is "food and drink in a way, to me."

"I wake up in the middle of the night with hot sweats, thinking: 'What's going to happen to TCM? Are there going to be commercials? Is somebody going to buy it?'" said Anderson, building to a mock scream.

Since premiering in 1994, ("Gone With the Wind") Turner Classic has been a glorious anachronism on the television landscape. Now available in about 85 million homes, it beams out film after film with almost no exceptions: an endless feast of pre-code comedies and post-war noir, John Ford Westerns and Fred Astaire musicals.

Especially in the dog days of summer, when superheroes have a stranglehold on movie theaters, TCM can be an oasis.

"Turner Classic is the only thing that kept me a U.S. citizen during the Bush years," says Alexander Payne ("Sideways," ''Election").

The round-the-clock programming (some 400 movies air in a month) means there are plenty of duds, too. But they in some way only add to the charm. Even weaker, forgettable films can offer directors lessons — sometimes more so than the classics. It has long been watched by filmmakers with a keen eye to their craft: a window into how different directors move the camera or summoned an atmosphere.

Sidney Lumet, the director who so famously satirized television news in "Network," said before his death in 2011 that he didn't watch TV much, but he watched Turner Classic Movies religiously.

"Every evening I'm home, I automatically check Turner Classic Movies and see what's on," Lumet said. "And it doesn't even have to be a good movie. For me, it starts you thinking: What was it that made them do this?"

There are, of course, many other avenues for such study, but few that can be beckoned with a simple click or with the same sense of discovery. TCM is like radio for movies.

Martin Scorsese pens a monthly column for the network and has made the restoration of old films a personal crusade. For him, the distance between making movies and watching them on TCM is comically small. While editing his films alongside his regular editor Thelma Schoonmaker, Scorsese keeps the channel perpetually playing on a nearby monitor.

"All the time. Not with sound. And away from Thelma," Scorsese says, chuckling. "I watch when I want to. I'll glance over and see a certain scene. Or she'll glance over and say, 'What was that a minute ago?' And I'll say that's so-and-so. Or I'll show her a sequence that comes on."

It's also a connection for Scorsese to his earliest exposure to movies; he grew up watching films on television. Payne, too. But TV has changed considerably since then. Amid the rise of original cable programming, TCM has been one of the few to stay devoted to movies. Its original rival, AMC, became home to "The Walking Dead" and "Breaking Bad"; it no longer goes by its full name: American Movie Classics. IFC, too, has moved away from indie films to embrace scripted comedies like "Portlandia."

But TCM, which is owned by Turner (part of Time Warner), has been happy to be the standard bearer for vintage film. It now hosts an LA film festival and a seven-night cruise. The channel's longtime host and face of the network, Robert Osborne — that friendly font of movie trivia, forever walking toward the camera — is now joined by hosts Ben Mankiewicz and the recently added Tiffany Vazquez.

But the biggest change is yet to come: a new subscription-based streaming service from TCM and the Criterion Collection, a partnership that unites two tent poles of home-movie cinephilia. It also fills a void; Netflix has shown little interest in streaming older films. The service, FilmStruck, is to launch in the fall.

Yet being able to pick and choose isn't quite the same as dipping into and out of TCM's broadcast stream. Though TCM can seem like a nostalgia factory for golden-age Hollywood, the network (which has an on-demand app) has courted younger viewers. A 2012 survey found that its audience isn't so old — 60 percent are aged 25-54. And some of its most famous fans watch on a variety of screens, including Steven Spielberg, who describes himself as "a TCM devotee."

"I watch these movies mainly when I can't sleep. I'll get my iPad out and watch them," says Spielberg. "Instead of just running one Greta Garbo film, they run four or five and you get to see them all."

Such discoveries are a part of a never-ending communion with cinema.

"I like to watch a lot of the silent movies," says Spielberg, who has re-watched all of Keaton's films in recent years. "They taught me so much about where to put the camera."

This is the first I have heard of this new streaming service.

Not sure; I never watched that.


Do these streaming services work on tv's that are connected to the Internet (as Netflix does) or only on a computer? I'd only get it if I can watch it on my tv, which is a much bigger screen than my computer.

Also, it's true that Netflix has a very limited selection of classic movies streaming (that's why I do not have Netflix streaming service; I only have the DVD service, which has a MUCH larger selection); but if the entire selection on this new TCM streaming service is limited to the movies that are on Criterion disc, that isn't too large a selection, either.

I guess we'll have to wait and see ....

In regard to the what PT Anderson said, wondering if TCM will ever use ads:

How do they make money now? Just off the rights fees that cable companies pay them for the right to carry the channel, I guess?
Anyway, I could never watch a movie with commercials in middle of the movie; but I could live with them showing commercials between one movie and another, if they ever decided to do that - they already do show commercials between one movie and another, but only for TCM products. (Anyway, I hardly ever watch live; I almost always watch on DVR, so I could skip the ads between movies. But ads in middle of a movie is something I could never live with.)

Wow - that's great news about FilmStruck:

http://filmstruck.com/

My DVR is 90% TCM recordings already. The one thing that currently upsets me is that I have Fios and they don't broadcast the TCM "HD" channel so I have to zoom in on anything not full-screen. This subscription service might make me cut the cord as I have very little time to watch TV now anyway.

My DVR is also almost all TCM recordings. (I have Optimum, so I have the HD channel.) But if Filmstruck is only going to have the movies that Criterion has, it's not going to be a replacement for TCM.

I'm assuming/hoping it's going to be a combination of the Turner vault and the Criterion library.

I'm hoping that it's going to have a decent amount of genre stuff, especially noir and westerns.

Either way, this is filling a major void and I really hope they don't try to become another cord-free HBO like Netflix, Hulu, etc.

TCM had ads for DVDs and TCM stuff between their films.

There's an an Errol Flynn mini-marathon in a few days, including classic Captain Blood with score by Korngold.

Here's some exciting news: Every Tuesday and Wednesday in July 2016, TCM will be showing nothing but Westerns. That's right: 105 Westerns this July. TCM is advertising it as the "the largest showcase of Westerns in the history of the network." Okay, so the official program title is stupid ("TCM Presents Shane Plus 100 More Great Westerns."  ::) ) Okay, so the host for this special program doesn't excite me (Keith Carradine. I mean, Keith Carradine???  ::) ::)) But hey man, it's 105 Westerns!!! I'll definitely be setting my dvr ... (Note that as always, some of the movies playing on TCM are available on demand via the Watch TCM app, or anytime on TCM.com, if you have certain cable providers and sign in with the username/password of your cable account.)

I wonder if it some licensing thing from MGM that only allows a certain number of screenings in a given period? So they always have an alternate in case the limit is reached inadvertently due to specials throughout the year?

Or screenings are contracted for specific markets; if the one you live in didn't pay the premium for the title, you get the alternate.

Spags and other films coming up this week Tuesday and Wednesday, including the Dollars films.

I saw that upcoming as well.  Nice about TCM is that films are uncut and letterboxed wherever possible;  GBU will be the version with the extra scenes.  I saw Guns for San Sebastian (1968), The Stranger Returns (1968), and The Five Man Army (1970) at theaters back when released.  Guns for San Sebastian is set in Mexico, has Bronson, and is worth a look.  The Stranger Returns was playing with "A Stranger in Town", remember The Stranger Returns as being better, haven't seen it since.  And The Five Man Army is one of my secret favorites; I really like the scenes as they ride and their outfits suddenly change while riding, the scene with the Japanese guy and the train, and the scene where the Japanese guy gets mad when the Mexican girl he likes is mistreated.  So I'm DVR-ing The Stranger Returns and The Five Man Army; even though my cable electronics these days do not allow me to record from Encore or Cinemax onto DVD discs (even if DVR'd, but I can make VDR tapes of those), I am able to do so still with TCM.  And I typically like the TCM introductions.

As to the John Wayne films: Red River is absolutely great, and in my opinion Wayne's best film and best role; Rio Bravo is also top-notch.

Keith Carradine is doing the introductions to this series. I saw one thus far; he is awful. Not a good voice, just stares straight into teleprompter and reads. All hosts do that, but he does not seem natural at all. There is nothing enjoyable about watching him speak.

Thanks for the tips! DVR is set!

Red River is one of the all-time great AW's, though of course the ending is terrible.

my initial post about the TCM Westerns program only listed the films playing through July 20th. The program actually is still running next week Tues. and Wed.; here is the schedule. The final movie showing in the program, at 2:15 a.m. Wed. July 27th, is Heaven's Gate. We've been discussing/debating it so much recently, due to Michael Cimino's death; I'll DVR it and give it a watch when I have a chance. I recorded so many movies in this program, it'll take me forever to get through 'em all. Luckily, my new DVR from Optimum has something like 75 hours of recording space.

Penn hold her in high regard. Strange that he didn't work with her again after The Missouri Breaks.

Thanks to Cusser on the recommendation of The Five Man Army. I liked it. I give it a 7.5/10 - nutty outrageous entertainment, as I have come to expect from SW's. further discussion in that movie's thread http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=1639.msg184066#msg184066

caught the end of Shane last night.

Keith Carradine, the crappy host of this series, said that while Alan Ladd initially would have seemed like an unusual choice to play a leading man in a Western, his performance is now considered one of the greatest in any Western. Really, Keith? I wonder who considers it that. True, Shane is one of the most iconic Western characters, because Shane is one of the most iconic Western movies. But greatest performances? Puhleeez. Who ever said THAT? Besides Keith Carradine.

Little Big Man has become an underrated film. One of the best westerns ever.

I finally found the time to watch this. Wow - it wasn't quite what I expected. Nonetheless, excluding a few awkward/grating moments, it was enjoyable. Thematically, I can see how in its time it must have been quite different and really stood-out. Technically, there wasn't much to write home about - there were a couple of nice quintessential Dede Allen "moments", but they were few and otherwise it seemed relatively unremarkable in an editing sense.

Speaking of Dede Allen, I was thinking the other day about what a great job she did on "The Breakfast Club". It would not have been the same without her.

I am worried about Robert Osborne. He has not been on TCM in months - it's been Ben Menkiewicz and a bunch of guest-hosts.They recently hired a new girl, Tiffany Vasquez, to be the Saturday host - she is the only permanent host they have ever hired other than Osborne and Menkiewicz. They also have been advertising that the next TCM Classsic Cruise will be the last.

I have searched online and not seen any discussion about this, but Osborne must be seriously ill. The most recent articles I have seen discussing his health status was when he announced that he would miss the TCM Classic Film Festival last April. I have not seen any articles about him since then.

Hoping and praying for a full and speedy recovery  :)

That's strange. Penn was one of the most talented of the directors who reformed Hollywood in the 60s and early 70s. He was a far better director than most of the others (Lumet, Altman, Schaffner, Jewison), and he made some unique films, also stylistically. Especially LBM, which is his best film together with Bonnie and Clyde and, yes, Night Moves (which is different, less obvious brilliant).

Though, he should have achieved more with his talent, but there is wonderful stuff in all of his early films, stuff of the kind I don't find in any Lumet film. He probably was too sensitive to work in the Hollywood shark basin, and I have no clue why he made the conventional films he made in the 80s, maybe he retired inwardly

We can discuss how important his films now (they were very important back then), but there is doubtless incredible stuff in all his films. In The Left Handed Gun, in The Miracle Worker, in Mickey One, in Alice's Restaurant, even in The Missouri Breaks.

And you won't say that Schaffner or Jewison did any real great stuff.

Mickey One and The Missouri Breaks are, I'll admit, films I can re-watch. But neither is anywhere comparable to Prince of the City or The Long Goodbye.

Not compared to Penn. I like Lumet, but none of his films is better than 8/10. Altman is different, but most of his film don't give me that much in regard of style. Altman is a bit tricky for me.
But I love The Long Goodbye, as much as I love Night Moves. Both were not that great for me when I first watched them, I had trouble to get into them, but bot grew every time I returned to them, there was so much to discover, and they still get better with every re-watch.
Altman is good and always worth a look, Lumet is a bit pedestrian, respectable, but without the real punch.

I wouldn't say so. He has a handful of good-to-great films (MASH, McCabe, TLG), a lot of just-OK films (Nashville, Buffalo Bill, Vincent and Theo, The Player, Gosford Park) and some really horrendous ones (Brewster McCloud, Quintet, HealtH, Ready to Wear).  He's all over the place. But his really good ones are better than just about anyone else's in the period. By contrast, Penn never made even one great film. Not one. TLG is better than the entirety of Penn's career.

As a thought experiment, let's quickly compile the 50 best English-language films of the 70s. Here they are:
Quote
Apocalypse Now
Badlands
Bang the Drum Slowly
Barry Lyndon
A Bridge Too Far
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
Charley Varrick
Chinatown
A Clockwork Orange
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
The Conversation
Day of the Locust
Days of Heaven
Dog Day Afternoon
Duck, You Sucker
Five Easy Pieces
The French Connection
The Friends of Eddie Coyle
The Front
The Godfather 1 and 2
Hickey and Boggs
Jaws
Kelly’s Heroes
The Killing of a Chinese Bookie
The Laughing Policeman
The Last Detail
Lenny
The Long Goodbye
M*A*S*H
McCabe and Mrs. Miller
Nashville
New York, New York
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
The Outlaw Josey Wales
The Panic in Needle Park
Patton
Paper Moon
The Passenger
Papillon
Play It Again, Sam
Serpico
The Seven-Ups
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Slaughterhouse 5
Straw Dogs
The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3
Taxi Driver
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
Two Lane Blacktop
The Wind and the Lion

Notice, there is not a single Arthur Penn film on the list. Not one! And there's no way to fit one on, because nothing in his 70s work is worthy of a Top 50 spot. (He might do better on a 60s list, though). Truly, a mediocre talent.

But now that you let your pants down I think you urgently need new underwear ;), cause having not one Penn film on the list is surely not its only flaw. But then, half of them would make my list too. Of course, and that's not a big surprise.
On the other hand some of them wouldn't make a top 500 of mine.

If Penn is mediocre, than you don't think much of Bonnie and Clyde either? Or is the 60s Penn not that mediocre. Bonnie and Clyde is at least still an acknowledged masterpiece (which does not mean that one can't find it mediocre).

Still no Arthur Penn. OK, to take you out of suspense, if I did a list of 80, The Missouri Breaks would be on it. And if I went to 100, I'd probably find room for Night Moves. Little Big Man wouldn't make my Top 200.

If I were doing "60 from the 60s" Bonnie & Clyde would be there; Mickey One, also; maybe The Miracle Worker.

Wednesday 12:45 pm, TCM will be showing "A Dispatch from Reuters" (1940)
http://www.tcm.com/schedule/index.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-10-12
It's a movie with Edward G.Robinson playing Julius Reuter, the founder of the famed Reuters news agency.
I mention it here cuz it is a movie I saw on TCM a while back and liked very much; I gave it an 8/10. Robinson is one of my all-time favorite actors. I haven't seen the movie discussed at all on these boards, maybe no one has seen it. It's a studio-system, set-based biopic. I liked it very much. If this appeals to you, set your dvr  :)


The movie is also available on DVD-R from Warner Archive Collection (just released a few months ago).

Here is the Wikipedia page of Julius Reuter https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Reuter

I so hate this approach to programming. I care fuck-all about "stars." August is usually the only time I get to watch Turner (I visit my dad then and he's got it) and every year the same thing. Why don't they do films by directors, or periods, or genres? Anything but "stars."

Sunday Oct. 1, 6:30 a.m. Eastern Time, THE AGE OF INNOCENCE (1934) - the original movie based on the same book as Scorsese's movie made nearly 60 years later.

This movie has none of the opulence of the remake, none of the narration - I found both to be annoying. This one is much tighter, simpler. And it's good. Irene Dunn plays the Michelle Pfeiffer role. Check it out ...
