Holy Fool: Stan Laurel: June 16th 1890 - Feb 23rd 1965

On March 25 1929 two comedians arrived on set to begin work on their first sound picture. The atmosphere, usually so happy and carefree (the nickname for the Hal Roach studio was the 'Lot of Fun') was peculiarly tense. Strange signs had appeared on walls and on the door leading into the studio: Do Not Enter When Red…See More

I thought I would add a thread to discuss the last "classic"  movie you watched. As opposed to just any movie. I might start a thread for modern films later. I would prefer that you post more than just a title.KevinContinue

Here's the Character, Name the Movie (a game)

Ben-Hur (1959)

Set around the birth and life of Christ, Judah Ben-Hur (Charleton Heston) through a series of brief encounters is an observer of Christ’s life and death.  However, this is not about the life of Christ, rather an epic centered on a man seeking revenge.  Judah Ben-Hur’s life has been one of privilege, as a Jewish trader he has connections to Romans who occupy Judea.  One such being his childhood friend Messala (Stephen Boyd) who has returned to Judea as commander of the Roman…

    Kill da wabbit

    So—later this week, TCM will be running Night of the Lepus. It’s been on TCM before—but usually relegated to the late night TCM Underground slot. This Wednesday it’s on at 6pm Eastern where decent folk might stumble across it unawares. Which is awesome. There are few films as mocked as Night of the Lepus. You […]

    Okay, Here’s Everything

    When I write my posts here at the Movie Morlocks, I try my best to work whatever is on the schedule that day into my piece.  You may have noticed a phrase I use with alarming regularity (seriously, go back and check out my past posts), “today/tonight on TCM,” because I find my inspiration from the movies […]

    Regrettable Viewing Experiences? I’ve Had a Few!

    I follow a lot of people on Twitter and one of the most active and notable is Will McKinley who runs the excellent Cinematically Insane blog. Will has been a guest on TCM as well as TCM’s Official Podcast and he often shares interesting links on Twitter. This week Will led me to The Hitless […]

    Movie mapping: Counting my horror film steps

    Because I spend an inordinate amount of time sitting on my can, I try to get out into the real world and get some exercise. I used to run a bit but I’ve slowed it down in the last year or so and I’m more interested in hiking. The bottom line is that I’m around […]

    Johnny Mercer Goes Hollywood: Old Man Rhythm (1935) and To Beat the Band (1935)

      Johnny Mercer is one of the finest lyricists the United States has ever produced, contributing “Moon River”, “Fools Rush In” and “Days of Wine and Roses” to the Great American Songbook. Before he wrote that string of immortal hits, he tried (and folded) his hand at movie stardom, appearing in some sprightly B musicals […]
