    I grew up with parents who loved music and many of their favorite records were film soundtracks. On any given evening you could hear popular songs from movie musicals like West Side Story (1961), My Fair Lady (1964), Hello Dolly! (1969) and Camelot (1967) coming from my home. Ennio Morricone’s score for The Good, the [...]

    Now that it’s officially Fall, the Halloween Countdown can begin in earnest.  Mind you, we weirdos begin our Halloween Countdown beginning on October 32nd but we keep that clock watching to ourselves lest the rest of the world start piling sticks at our feet.  ‘Round about this leafy time o’ year, I’m often asked by [...]

    I’m a big admirer of John Frankenheimer’s early work from such live TV dramas as The Comedian (1956) and Days of Wine and Roses (1957) to All Fall Down (1962), Birdman of Alcatraz (1962), The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and Seconds (1966). I’ve also enjoyed several of the more commercial projects he helmed throughout his career such [...]

  • I’m visiting Portland for the weekend and was originally planning on interviewing the TCM V.P. of New Media about his erotic fantasies involving Joe Eszterhas, but he decided to stay in Atlanta instead. (Something about a wife, a birth, and a child – but I bet what he’s really doing is hiding out in his [...]

In recognition of its anniversary, a restored 35mm print is making the rounds of art houses and special venues.

    The Social Network, the opening night selection at the 2010 New York Film Festival (and opening nationwide October 1st), consists of men (and one girl) talking in rooms and around tables.

  • Like many horror aficionados I enjoy reading horror fiction as well as watching horror movies. And as summer makes way for autumn I’ve been indulging in a bit of both. Much like my fellow Morlock, Richard Harland Smith, I eagerly await this time of year. It gives me an excuse to spend my free time [...]

  • 10/02/10--10:01: Bette Davis is THE NANNY
  • Hammer Studios were always experts at following cinema fads and providing their own particular spin on a popular genre quickly to satify fans and take advantage of moviegoing trends. Besides the steady stream of horror films that made their reputation in the late fifties, they also had mini-franchises that ran from costume adventures (Sword of [...]

I love the “Studio That Dripped Blood” unconditionally so I was thrilled to learn that TCM was planning on showing Hammer films every Friday evening during the month of October.
