Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

That's a great schedule. I own many of them and I think I've seen them all except Burn, Witch, Burn and The Devil's Own, so I'll have to catch those.

Anybody interested in Freaks should just go ahead and buy the DVD; it's got some fantastic extras.

Might have to check some of those out. As great as Forbidden Planet, 2001 and Planet of the Apes are I've seen them enough that some of the lesser fare is actually more enticing viewing at this stage.

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I'm late for the update. (Is anyone else still willing to do this? I can't guarantee reliability.) Here's what's coming up in the first half of May, not counting whatever we might've missed:

Sun 5/5:
2:00 AM: The Tempest (1979): Shakespeare adaptation.

Mon 5/6:
12:30 AM: Judex (1917): First four episodes (shown out of order for some reason) of a classic French serial anticipating later pulp crimefighters like the Shadow. Not quite SF or fantasy, but pulp heroes are close enough to make it of interest. Airing order is: Prologue, Ch. 2, Ch. 3, Ch. 1.
6:00 PM: King Solomon's Mines (1950)

Wed 5/8:
11:15 AM: Gay Purr-ee ('62): Animated musical from UPA about talking/singing cats, co-written by Chuck Jones and directed by his protege Abe Levitow. With Judy Garland, Robert Goulet, Mel Blanc. This movie got Jones fired from Warner Bros., since he wasn't allowed to moonlight for other studios.

Thu 5/9:
1:15 AM: Cocoon ('85)
5:00 PM: Spirits of the Dead ('69): Horror anthology of Edgar Allan Poe stories, directed by Roger Vadim, Louis Malle, and Federico Fellini. With Jane Fonda, Brigitte Bardot, Terrence Stamp, and narrator Vincent Price in English version.

Fri 5/10:
9:30 PM: The Horn Blows at Midnight ('45) is on, in case you missed it the last two times it's been on since I've been keeping the list.

Sat 5/11:
6:00 AM: Indestructible Man ('56): Lon Chaney Jr. as resurrected criminal on killing spree. Once spoofed on MST3K.
4:00 PM: Poltergeist ('82)

Sun 5/12:
2:15 AM: The Twonky ('53): I described this the last time it was on. Weird satire with Hans Conried.
3:45 AM: The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.: Classic live-action Dr. Seuss film with Conried.

Mon 5/13:
12:30 AM: Judex Chapters 5, 6, 4, and 7 (why won't they show these in order?).

Wed 5/15:
8:00 PM: Forbidden Planet ('56)

Thu 5/16:
4:00 PM: Bell, Book and Candle ('59)

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I'll see if I can put together a list for the second half of May today.

There's a couple of very interesting items coming up here. I can't wait to see Judex. Hopefully they'll straighten out that episode order.

I may have to check out NIGHT OF THE COMET. I don't think I've seen that since it first came out . . ..

Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

I was thinking the same thing, but I don't know if I can deal with all that 80s hair. They seem to be showing a lot of more "recent" stuff lately-- that is to say, 70s and 80s, in addition to 20s through 50s.

Is this any good? I've never seen it, but I remember that Catherine Mary Stewart was in it, and I've always liked her.


Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (1953) - 7:30am
Ooh, that's a must. Too bad it isn't part of the monster-movie night that includes Godzilla, because it was an inspiration for that film. It would be nice to see them back-to-back (although I'd prefer the Japanese version of Godzilla to the Raymond Burr version).

I'm also curious about this one. Robert Beltran is in it, too, and I've been meaning to watch it on Netflix for ages, but have never gotten to it. Anyone seen it?

Night of the Comet is a lite movie. Basically 1980's consumerism fantasy for teenagers. Competently done, if not inspired.

Glad that "It Came From Beneath the Sea" will be airing. Never saw it until a week ago when the Sony Movie Channel aired it as part of a month long Ray Harryhausen tribute. Just as the 6 limbed octopus was making its way to San Francisco, the weather got stormy enough to disrupt my DirecTV signal, so I missed the climax of the film.

Looks like I'm getting another chance.

Sincerely,

Bill
