Re: TCM BORIS KARLOFF DAY (reply)
I disliked the comment that Ben Mankiewicz made in setting up THE BLACK CAT.  He referred to it as the first film that Karloff made "with his hated rival, Bela Lugosi."It would appear that the research staff couldn't even interpret ED...

Re: HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER (1973) (reply)
Eastwood's PALE RIDER pretty much crosses this film with SHANE and certainly qualifies as a weird one. My preference of his non-Leone westerns would be THE OUTLAW JOSEY WALES.UNFORGIVEN is one that I've never warmed up to, it's as if he...
