...Coming to Criterion DVD October 12: THE FOUR FEATHERS (1939). I haven't seen this one yet but relatives who have watched it loved it. Sounds like one to watch for!
...Here's Posters 21-30 in the Greatest Classic Sci-Fi Poster Countdown at Where Danger Lives.
...At 50 Westerns From the 50s Toby has a nifty photo of the Parry Lodge in Kanab, Utah, where many actors stayed while filming Westerns in the area.
...Kelli O'Hara of the SOUTH PACIFIC Broadway cast recently released an album of standards, ALWAYS.
...Tales of the Easily Distracted recently featured throughts by Dorian and Vinnie on James Garner's MARLOWE (1969) and SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF! (1968). The latter is a big favorite in our house. And thanks to Dorian for Tweeting me a link to James Garner's WHAT'S MY LINE? appearance.
...John Greco reviews Anthony Mann's THE TALL TARGET (1951) at Twenty Four Frames. I really liked this one, which stars Dick Powell as a detective trying to prevent President-Elect Lincoln's assassination in 1861. It's a great "train" movie for those who love films set on and around trains.
...I just came across this cookbook released last fall, which makes me hungry just looking at the cover: SOUTHERN PLATE by Christy Jordan.
...Chocolate cake in a cup? If I had to assemble all those ingredients in the first place, I think I'd rather just bake a cake...
...Thanks to KC of Classic Movies for making me aware of Pub-D-Hub. I found it in the Roku Channel Store and added it to my Roku channels this weekend, although I haven't had time to explore it yet. Sounds like fun.
...Jim Lane's Cinedrome has an excellent piece on the recent Debbie Reynolds costume auction and The Museum That Never Was.
THE AMAZING MRS. HOLLIDAY (1943) at The Amazing Deanna Durbin. And my thanks to Tom for linking to my 2008 post. There's even more on this film at Java's Journey.
...Moira has a very nice post on Carleton Carpenter and his 1952 films SKY FULL OF MOON and FEARLESS FAGAN at Skeins of Thought.
...Mike Clark of Home Media Magazine recently reviewed the remastered Warner Archive release of TORTILLA FLAT (1942), starring Spencer Tracy, John Garfield, and Hedy Lamarr.
...I'd love to see the Pre-Code Festival Leonard Maltin describes, which started in New York this weekend. There are some fabulous titles playing, including triple bills of hour-long films. However, there's a series coming to UCLA next month called "Harlow Before the Code" which sounds great. I plan to post more information on it at a future date.
...Happy 56th Birthday to Disneyland today!
Have a great week!
