    SUSPICION (RKO/Warner dungeon) is a great overlooked Hitchcock classic. [​IMG]
    The John Boorman/Lee Marvin noir classic POINT BLANK (Warner Dungeon) [​IMG] is another must see for any film buff. Recently remade as the Mel Gibson action/comedy PAYBACK.
    I'll have to check out ROAD HOUSE. I guess my film noir exposure is a little lacking. :b

    Tony, that was an inside joke between Robert and I, although it's been mentioned around here lately in other threads...I have a knack of swapping M and C by accident. I don't watch nor have The Movie Channel. [​IMG]

    We watched High Noon (1952) last night on TCM. It was part of their "Essentials" (for classic movie fans) series that airs Sunday nights at 6:00pm ET. The series is hosted by Rob Reiner, who talks a few minutes at the beginning and at the end of each movie.
    Paper Moon is on tap as next week's "essential".
    TCM has a very nice website here: http://www.turnerclassicmovies.com/Home

    I'd also like to metnion that TCM is airing a letterboxed Solaris (1972) late Friday night at 2am. Knowing Steven Soderbergh is remaking this with Goerge Clooney, I'm looking forward to seeing the original.
