TCM TV Alerts through tomorrow at 7 am:
These titles play on TCM's US schedule and all quoted times are for my own local Eastern time zone.
—I seem to hold the minority view on Search for Beauty (1934), playing on TCM at 8:30 am, but I checked it out again recently and I still can't stand it. That said, the Paramount pre-Code is about as naughty as can be and provides a co-starring role for not quite 16-year-old Ida Lupino, which scores it heavy points on intrigue. A nice part for Toby Wing, and I'm always happy to see Gertrude Michael, but oh, is James Gleason tough for me to take here! This was one of the earliest reviews I attempted on the site, posted over six years ago, so while I'm not sure how good the piece might be, I'm pretty sure I still feel the same about the movie.
—Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), at 12:00 noon. Still love it.
—Ride the High Country (1962), at 6:00 pm. One of the later movies that I'll ever recommend on the site, which speaks to how much I enjoyed it. Starring Randolph Scott and Joel McCrea, directed by Sam Peckinpah. I love later Peckinpah, but if you're leery of the name because it implies a lot of violence, no such worries with this one.
—Evelyn Keyes night on TCM, 8:00 pm - 2:15 am. Four movies beginning with Robert Montgomery in Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941) at 8 pm (I like James Gleason better here!); The Mating of Millie (1948) at 9:45 pm; highly recommended crime flick 99 River Street (1953) at 11:30 pm; and Robert Florey's The Face Behind the Mask (1948) starring Peter Lorre at 1:00 am.
—Hopefully today's Errol Flynn clippings post (following below for Daily subscribers) makes-up for that little Stan Laurel mishap earlier this week.
—No Twelvetrees report this morning. I got a late start last night and wanted to do something for Flynn's birthday, so I put off work on the biography until Saturday morning (Well, morning for me). Even with another issue of the Daily coming Sunday, I should be able to get in a couple of shifts on the book Saturday because I won't have any collectibles packages to prepare for the mail on Sunday.
—There may be a flash review tomorrow. We'll see how time breaks for me. I watched something interesting when I turned in Friday morning, my only worry is I'm tempted to do more research than I trying to allow myself on the flash pieces (which aren't supposed to contain any research). Might give this flick another shot in a few minutes and just roll from there tomorrow.
—Up to 25% off on all items in my eBay Store (25% on most items, in fact) through late Tuesday night. Click here to view items currently on sale in my eBay Store.
Okay, hope you get a kick out of the Flynn clippings. Talk to you tomorrow!
