Noah's Ark Sails Again Tonight On TCM!



Finally, at long last NOAH'S ARK (1928) returns to TCM for this week's Silent Sunday Nights presentation. After drifting on a long hiatus for some 7 years. The broadcast is scheduled to sail in from Mont Ararat at 12:15 AM EASTERN TIME, 11.15 Central MARCH 27th-28th.



Truly an epic scale production that took around three years to complete. Though restored at UCLA in the late 80's and early 90's, roughly 25 to 30% of the movie is still considered…

Michael Gough, 1916-2011

Michael Gough passed away earlier today at the age of 94. Gough will surely be best remembered by nerds for his role as Alfred Pennyworth in all four Burton/Schumacher Batman movies, which he played with a quiet dignity and a wry humor, even while pretending to be happy to see Alicia Silverstone.… Continue

Last Holiday (1950)

It has been quite some time since I posted here but sometimes the demands on my time can be great.

However, I wanted to make mention of the film I recently watched (captioned above) because it seemed like one of those little known films that deserve more attention.  I believe Last Holiday has been one of the Criterion selections that is about to be discontinued and they are selling it now at a discount for a limited time.

 

The film stars Alec Guiness who always seems to…

CLASSIC MOVIE ACTRESS TOURNAMENT (1940'S ERA) FINAL MATCH - INGRID BERGMAN VS VIVIEN LEIGH

What looked liked a final match between number 1 Bette Davis and number 2 Katherine Hepburn has now become something else. I will be the first to admit my surprise as 4th seed Vivien Leigh and 3rd seed Ingrid Bergman stormed back today to win their respective semi-final matches to set up a showdown starting immediately. Leigh, who was trailing Davis at one point by 9 points came back to win 37-36 in a match that had several ties throughout Saturday. While it's a shame seeing another…

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
