Flickers in Time Posted by Beatrice on Mar 28, 2020

Hello, Dolly! Directed by Gene Kelly Written by Ernest Lehman from a play by Thornton Wilder 1969/US IMDb link Repeat viewing/YouTube rental Not my favorite musical but cheerful enough for the Lockdown.

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Mar 28, 2020

In our ongoing series of beginner’s guides for up-and-coming classic movie enthusiasts, we thought it would be well worth it to acknowledge one of Hollywood’s larger-than-life directors in John Huston. Before starting out as a screenwriter, he galvanized his reputation collaborating with read more

Annihilation (2018, Alex Garland)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 28, 2020

The two most bewildering things about Annihilation are director Garland’s inability to frame for Panavision aspect ratio—did cinematographer Rob Hardy just not want to tell him he was reusing the same three close-up shots, with his subject on one side of the frame, looking off, the other three-quar read more

PUSHOVER

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Mar 28, 2020

A couple nights ago, courtesy of the MOVIES! TV channel, I watched a 1954 film noir called PUSHOVER. The movie starred two of my favorite actresses of all time--Kim Novak and Dorothy Malone. PUSHOVER was in fact Novak's very first credited film role (she gets a "And Introducing" main title credit). read more

Classic Film for Trying Times

Backlots Posted by Lara on Mar 28, 2020

Along with the rest of the country, I have been struggling to adjust to our current world situation. I am fortunate in many ways–with the ability to work my day job as a teacher from home, I have no lost income, and I am young and healthy. My heart goes out to anyone suffering illness or car read more

Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Mar 27, 2020

“Now there’s a great place to visit. Yes, sir. The great cities of America. New York. Chicago. Los Angeles to the west. Why, that’s one place I’d like to see, like to someday end up. Los Angeles. […] Why, it’s like paradise on earth.” —The Five Acts o read more

Flickers in Time Posted by Beatrice on Mar 27, 2020

Divine Madness Directed by Michael Ritchie Written by Jerry Blatt, Bette Midler, and Bruce Vilanch 1980/USA IMDb link Repeat viewing/Amazon Instant Nothing like a Bette Midler concert to get the old blood circulating in the midst of Lockdown. This is classic Midler from the period not so far away fr read more

On Blu-ray: Laurence Olivier and Diane Lane in A Little Romance (1979)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Mar 27, 2020

In a time where virtually the whole human race is feeling the absence of loved ones, the charming A Little Romance (1979) has become a more bittersweet film. When I recently watched the movie on a new Blu-ray from Warner Archive, I appreciated it as a timeless tribute to many aspects of love and a t read more

Writing Elsewhere: With a Friend Like Harry (2000) for Crooked Marquee

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Mar 27, 2020

This week I wrote about the slow-burn French thriller With a Friend Like Harry (2000) for the film site Crooked Marquee. It's an interesting movie, because while it is in many ways a throwback to Hitchcock-style suspense, it has a lot of timely things to say about the way money can give one a sense read more

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018) s01e07 – Feast of Feasts

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 27, 2020

Netflix did drop “Sabrina” all at once so who knows if this Thanksgiving episode was meant to “air” on Thanksgiving. The Thanksgiving theme doesn’t last long—enough to introduce the hilarious idea of Miranda Otto sitting and watching football all day for the violence–but once the witch read more

Erik the Viking (1989, Terry Jones)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 27, 2020

Erik the Viking is a great example of when the director doesn’t know how to direct the script. What makes it peculiar is… director Jones wrote the script. The film, an absurd comedy about a group of Vikings trying to end Ragnarok so they people will stop killing each other, starts with the th read more

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018) s01e08 – The Burial

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 27, 2020

Maggie Kiley directs this one and Kiley’s so far the best director on “Sabrina,” so I went in with high hopes. It doesn’t disappoint, which is something given how much the episode does. It starts with a mine collapse in Greendale, last episode’s cliffhangers—mean girls Abigail Cowen and read more

Pitching a poster of Pastime

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Mar 27, 2020

Yesterday's entry commemorated what should've been major league baseball's Opening Day with a newfound photo of Carole Lombard throwing out the first ball. The person who tracked down that pic and its snipe, David Trimboli, also found a snipe for the pic above...and here it is:Can't read it? Let's e read more
