Doctor Who (2005) s02e12 – Army of Ghosts

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 3, 2020

One Earth episode without Camille Coduri was clearly too much so she doesn’t just appear in this one, she also pretends to be daughter Rose (Billie Piper) and play companion to David Tennant. Coduri and Tennant don’t grate as sharply as one might’ve feared (hard to imagine her and Christopher read more

The Bellboy (1960) and Jerry Lewis The Goofball Auteur

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 2, 2020

The Bellboy is introduced by a witty disclaimer as a studio executive (a cameo by Jack Kruschen) explains this is a film based on fun. There is no story. No plot. Instead, it acts as a visual diary in the week of a real nut! He subsequently reels about in his chair laughing hysterically. It breaks read more

Encore Podcast: Elvis Presley -- Year One

The Man on the Flying Trapeze Posted by David on Jul 2, 2020

Encore Podcast: Elvis Presley wasn't born in 1956, but his career was. He began the year barely known outside the south, but under the management of Col. Tom Parker he spent the year making his mark on TV variety shows hosted by Milton Berle, Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan; and his recordings for RCA, read more

Classic Movie Travels: Ruby Keeler

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Annette Bochenek on Jul 2, 2020

Classic Movie Travels: Ruby Keeler Ruby Keeler When thinking of early musicals, the output of Warner Bros. studios is certainly worth noting. In the Gold Digger musicals and so many others, a wide variety of Warner Bros.’s triple-threat talents shone in the musical genre. Though Ruby Kee read more

Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Season One

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jul 2, 2020

The new streaming app Peacock TV officially launches on July 15, 2020. However, it's available now for customers of Comcast's Xfinity cable service. Most of the TV shows on Peacock are recent ones from NBC. A wonderful exception is Alfred Hitchcock Presents, the classic anthology series that aired f read more

Cool Hand Luke (1967, Stuart Rosenberg)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 2, 2020

Maybe a third of the way into Cool Hand Luke, the film all of a sudden starts getting really good. It’s when Jo Van Fleet makes her appearance, which provides the film both its single best acting—Newman and Van Fleet are exquisite in the scene—and also director Rosenberg showing he’s actually read more

On Tuesday, June 30, Susan Claassen and I joined forces once again to do An Afternoon with Edith Head for the National Arts Club!

On Blu-ray: Gregory Peck and Eva Marie Saint in The Stalking Moon (1969)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Jul 1, 2020

I went into the western thriller The Stalking Moon (1969) knowing nothing about it and came out the other side feeling unsettled. It is of its time in the deep certainty it shows in its morals, which can make it a difficult watch. The film recently made its Blu-ray debut on Warner Archive. The Stal read more

June 2020

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jul 1, 2020

My children asking for snacks….again. Hello summer! In between keeping my kids busy, fetching them popsicles and avoiding a certain plague I’ve found a little time to watch some new movies: I’m a little behind on my quest to watch 52 films directed by women this year, but plan to c read more

Lombard on lists, and a 'nurse's' masked reminder

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 1, 2020

Actress Maria Tura (Carole Lombard) is having an affair with Polish pilot Stanislav Sobinski (Robert Stack, top), much to the chagrin of her egotistical actor husband Joseph Tura (Jack Benny, bottom) in "To Be Or Not To Be," Ernst Lubitsch's 1942 dark comedy classic and the last film Lombard would m read more

The Confession Killer: Exploring the Complicated Case of Henry Lee Lucas

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Jul 1, 2020

Aside from posting an announcement for the 5th Wonderful Ingrid Bergman Blogathon (*wink wink!*), I haven’t written a lot of my blog since I came back to Montreal. For this new blog article, I wanted to share with you one of the series I’ve discovered recently (I’m more in a serie read more

Upload (2020) s01e03 – The Funeral

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 1, 2020

This episode opens with a Rupert “Tilford” (cough, cough, Murdoch)—played by Creed from “The Office”—paying to get his Upload mind put into a clone body. And he dies. More than any episode so far, this episode of “Upload” felt a little like they were trying for Robocop humor. It’s read more

Doctor Who (2005) s02e11 – Fear Her

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 1, 2020

For an Earth episode, especially one with a strangely disjointed narrative with dueling MacGuffins, Fear Her is okay. There’s not a very high bar for the Earth episodes so getting to see David Tennant and Billie Piper doing an ad for the 2012 Olympics in London. They show up—six years into Piper’s read more

Classic Films in Focus: MARTY (1955)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Jun 30, 2020

Somehow I've managed to miss seeing Marty (1955) in my classic movie viewing up until this month, when I happened to find it hidden in the depths of the Prime streaming catalog on Amazon. I'm glad I finally discovered it, though, because this modest romantic drama is as sweet and compelling a pictur read more

Frasier (1993) s02e13 – Retirement is Murder

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 30, 2020

New writing team (Elias Davis and David Pollock)—albeit one working together since the 1960s—and a new director (Alan Myerson) but it’s a close to quintessential “Frasier.” Though more in the “good jackass Kelsey Grammer” column than the “good exemplar episode” one, even though it’s read more

The Ladies Man (1961): Herbert H. Heebert

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 30, 2020

The French (and Europe in general) have unparalleled esteem for Jerry Lewis.  It no doubt allows them to put him in conversations with their own beloved Jacques Tati as the true heirs to the Chaplins and the Keatons of comedy. It’s no major revelation most Americans, flagged from the general read more
