Oops, we let this thread slide for a bit, but here's what's coming up over the rest of February:
Today (2/10) at 5:45 EST is Ron Howard's Cocoon
, which is inexplicably listed as "Horror."
Tue 2/12, 6:15 AM: Does The Hunchback of Notre Dame
count as genre? They've got it billed as Horror too. It's the '39 Charles Laughton version.
Wed 2/13, 4:30 PM: Mighty Joe Young
(1949), Ray Harryhausen's first major film (working with King Kong
animator Willis O'Brien).
Sun 2/17, 7:15 AM: King Solomon's Mines
(1950) with Deborah Kerr and Stewart Granger.
6 PM: George Pal's The Time Machine
8 PM: Tobe Hooper's Poltergeist
Wed 2/20, 5:30 PM: The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm
(1962), featuring stop-motion animation by George Pal (within a live-action biopic about the Grimms).
Fri 2/22, 8 PM: Here Comes Mr. Jordan
(1941), which was remade in 1978 as Heaven Can Wait
8 AM: The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T
(1953), an overlooked classic written by Dr. Seuss and starring Hans Conreid.
11:30 AM: Bell, Book and Candle
(1959), James Stewart movie about a witch who doesn't use the Oxford comma (I guess).
5:30 PM: Close Encounters of the Third Kind
(1977) -- evidently the original theatrical cut, since it says "135 minutes."
8 PM: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
9:15 AM: One Million B.C.
(1941) with Victor Mature -- sadly, not the Raquel Welch remake.
3:15 PM: Topper
5:00 PM: Topper Takes a Trip
6:30 PM: Topper Returns
Wed 2/27, 1:45 PM: The Jungle Book
