It's 12:08 and I've got 1:45 min left. Don't think I'm gonna make it tonight
Night of the Iguana is such a great flick. Can't decide who I want to bone more, Ava Gardner or Deborah Kerr.
Heck's got his eye on Elsa
Hartley wasn't a bad looking young girl
Had a helluva time getting him to put that hole in there.
All I want is to enter my house justified.
I don't want them to see this. I'll do it alone.
Wizard of Oz is on and I had to bust out Dark Side of the Moon. Still awesome after all these years.
This is pretty good weed, too.

PSA: 30 Seconds Over Tokyo
Set your DVRs for Detour at 2:30 AM CST. Greatness.
Just watched 'The Harder They Fall' . Humphrey Bogart, Rod Steiger, Jersey Joe Walcott and Former Heavyweight Champ (and Jethro's Pa) Max Baer. Bogie's final film. He plays a washed up sports writer turned press agent for a fighter winning fixed fights. Naturally there's the inevitable moment of conscience when he rocks the boat. Runs again Sunday morning 7am. Good stuff.
If I could bundle all of the channels that I watch sports on and TCM I would need absolutely nothing else.........ever.
I always watch TCM.
Easy Rider about to start. Again. Love it.
The theme tonight is biker movies. I just watched Hell's Angels On Wheels. Never saw that before. Holy $#@! it was awesome, more from an historical/anthropological standpoint than a cinematic one.
The Born Losers was on earlier... the chick who played Vicky was pretty hot.
Watching Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry on El Rey instead. Just watched ER not too long ago.
Plus, Susan George.

PSA: Treasure of the Sierra Madre Tonight @ 7. We don't need no stinking badges!
I may bend your precious airplane, but I'm bringing it down!
The Bridge on the River Kwai is on after Lawrence of Arabia. Don't know why it's coming on at 1:00, but I can't make that. Early morning meeting tomorrow.
The Third Man comes on Wednesday night in prime time! Outstanding movie with Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Highly recommend that one.
Pretty simple why it's coming on at 1:00 AM. LOA is almost a four hour movie.
Seems like we just did this. I enjoyed plowing through the haul I amassed on my DVR last year and the decks are clear.
Somewhat related: I stumbled upon this Youtube account which is overflowing with off the beaten path classic stuff. https://www.youtube.com/user/PizzaFlix
They said this year they're linking subsequent films by actor (at least one who appeared in one currently showing then the next one). I guess Alec Guinness is the link. Kinda cool.
I love this time of year, best thing going. I have LOA on tivo, so not watching now.
Good stuff later this afternoon. Forbidden Planet, Bad Day at Black Rock, Battle of the Bulge, The Sting, The Verdict, From Here to Eternity. Not a bad string of classics.
Love this time of year on TCM.
I caught Hearts and Minds over the weekend. That was part of 31 Days of Oscar? I know it won one or two. What a thought-provoking documentary.
From Here To Eternity Sunday afternoon kept me from getting some outside work done on a beautiful day. It's on again tonight. The Lost Weekend on Sunday night is one I had never watched before. Good stuff.
Never saw Battle of the Bulge before. Didn't think it was that good.
This was a cheap runaround by Warner Bros. that offended many vets; besides being wildly inaccurate, it really didn't have much to do with the actual Battle of the Bulge. It was more of a big tank fight. What we could have had was a Columbia epic, advised by Ike, Monty, Bradley, etc. It probably would have been awesome. As it was, this sorta dog of a movie, despite some big star power, ended up being panned at the movies (lost $2 million, at the time pretty bad), mostly due to bad press.
Today it's a drink a beer and watch guys blow each other up, don't care just had dinner movie.
Sometimes 30 Days of Oscar can even show how a "bad" movie can have its place in "good" context.
Not really sure why it was included. Wasn't even nominated for an Oscar. Maybe now it's 31 Days of Golden Globes?
The only reason I can think of is it might have been a "weak link" where they're chaining films by common actor. Robert Shaw is the obvious link into The Sting (taking the baton from Robert Ryan in Bad Day at Black Rock). Other than that, man I don't know. Could have used a lot of other ones.
I think Newman's greatest role is in The Verdict. Even better than Gandorf. His broken down lawyer, especially when trying to foist the image of someone who has it together, is riveting. The plot is a little Hollywood, but it's still pretty good. Milo O'Shea as the judge is a scary SOB too, best role of his ever? But Newman is unforgettable in this. Son, now THAT'S acting!
Tape/watch at 9:15.
I hadn't watched it in a long time and forgot just how bad it was. All I remembered was Henry Fonda in the spotter plane and Telly Savalas in the tank. Did some research and Eisenhower came out of retirement to actively protest against it. Now THAT's saying something. But to be fair Telly Savalas is pretty good in it.
But we've got no turret!
So? We can still ram them!
I won't embarrass him.
Had never seen From Here To Eternity. Damn solid.
Blossoms in the Dust on now. Docudrama starring Greer Garson about Edna Gladney and the Texas Children's Home in Ft. Worth. Great woman doing great things.
