Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) (reply)
While the action scenes are impressive, what got me the most was the script. As wild of a stretch as it may seem, this is SEVEN DAYS IN MAY with super heroes. It bridges the gap between juvenile adventure and adult paranoia thriller of...

Re: "L. Maltin's MOVIE GUIDE" (reply)
I do recall one error in Maltin's book, circa 1980 or so that almost caused me to spit coffee. It was for either MURDER, MY SWEET or THE BIG SLEEP. It said "Humphrey Bogart's Powell doesn't have Marlowe's irony or force, but..."That one...

Re: Terror in the Jungle (1968)  (reply)
That may well be the most excruciating 88 seconds that I've spent on a film this year. I'd say this century but I only caught up with SHE FREAK in 2011.

I wouldn't mind seeing it again. My one and only viewing was back in 1965 when WPIX had a prime time movie on Wednesday nights, before they went to doing so M-F. They also aired The Amphibian Man and The Devil's Messenger in this...

Re: Color TV shows of the sixties why do they look extra colorful? (reply)
I can't stand the look of most 60s shows in color. Hues totally ruined the vibe for THE FUGITIVE but fortunately it was only one season.Everything is overly lighted (lit?) - the westerns look ridiculous, all the interiors are as bright...

Re: WENT THE DAY WELL (1942)? (reply)
I enjoyed it tremendously. A couple spots had some audio drop-outs - Murphy's Law in action as I was recording it. Oh well, it will have to do - I know that I'll be watching it again. Great use of the opposing profiles of Leslie Banks....

I've heard of it, I've just never had the chance to see it. That will be rectified tonight.A restored print was featured at one of the TCM Film Fests a year or two ago. I'm presuming that we'll be seeing that tonight.

I see Roger Corman's Von Richtofen and Brown on the list - never did catch that one.More Than a Miracle may be of interest to some - ran for about a week in NYC despite Sophia Loren and Omar Sharif at the peak of their fame.

Re: Why Chaney For The Kharis Sequels? (reply)
Yes Wich, there certainly were residuals then for TV series. Back then, I believe that it was a sliding scale downward, to something like the 12th or 14th run. That in itself was actually rather generous as most series never got that...
