Actually a few classics this week! I wish they’d hurry up and add more. If you want to catch a great 1951 B-movie noir, try Cry Danger. I don’t know why, but I love it.

  • Sabrina (1954) I always think Bogart is miscast. He and William Holden don’t seem very much like brothers.
  • Lady for a Day (1933) Early Frank Capra that I’ve not seen yet.
  • The Day of the Jackal (1973) I’ve always heard of this but never caught it. The Jackal is an assassin. Directed by Fred Zinnemann (A Man for All Seasons and High Noon).
  • Big Doll House (1971) A Roger Corman WIP movie with Pam Grier directed by Jack Hill.
  • The Haunting of Julia (1977) Mia Farrow.
  • The Last Remake of Beau Geste (1977) Now this is my speed. Marty Feldman, Ann-Margret, Michael York, Peter Ustinov, James Earl Jones, Trevor Howard and Henry Gibson! I’m sure the movie’s a mess, and probably only a little bit funny and then only if you’ve seen Beau Geste.
  • Cross My Heart (1987) Annette O’Toole and Martin Short.

  1. Wow! I finally saw this movie “crazy danger” on TCM and fell in love with it. This RKO film noir is fantastic with great acting and a smart, fast-moving dialog.
