    Oh I so have to find a way over and see that movie on 35mm on your system if the invite is still good. :)

    Hadn't seen this one since it first came out. It didn't leave much of an impression on me originally, but I enjoyed it more with this viewing. It can't hold a candle to the first film, of course, but this one is still fun, especially the final 45 minutes, where Danny Glover goes toe-to-toe with the Predator.

    I had never seen the 1934 version of State Fair all the way through, so I bought it for $5 from iTunes tonight and streamed it. I enjoyed this version even if I did miss the Rodgers and Hammerstein songs immensely.

    I have a day full of DVR material today. First will come this week's Noir Alley at lunchtime. This will be followed by My Sister Eileen, the original 1942 film version. I also recorded The Odessa File from TCM. I haven't seen this since viewing it in the theater back in the 1970s, so I will see if the Blu-ray release will be worth picking up. I remember liking the book more than the film, but I need to give it another view.

    Don't anybody laugh! Yesterday I watched Odongo, an old-fashioned children's film with a child in the leading role. The reason I watched it was that Rhonda Fleming is in the film and I wanted to drool over her! She looked good too which is not surprising because the cinematographer was Ted Moore who later did From Russia With Love and A Man For All Seasons. His camera operator was Ernest Day who later became Freddie Young's operator.

    Sony's MOD disc's presentation is too dark but free of dirt and scratches. A new master would be very welcome but I don't imagine Odongo is high on Grover Crisp's list for a clean-up.

    Lately I have been catching quite a few films I've never seen before, and today there was another one - quite famous but one which for some reason has eluded me all these years: East Side, West Side. Besides terrific performances by all the principals (Stanwyck, James Mason, Ava Gardner, Van Heflin, Nancy Davis, Cyd Charisse, Gale Sondergaard, William Frawley, William Conrad), I was SO impressed that this film did not resort to a conventional happy ending. It rather left things a bit ambiguous (and I didn't guess the murderer's identity either; I thought it was Charisse).

    A fine movie, I might watch my DVD again tomorrow if my new shipment of discs don't arrive in time.

    Cyd Charisse as a murderess! Outrageous! :) This was in her pre Singin' In The Rain period when she was playing "nice girls" in films like Tension.

    I enjoy East Side, West Side a lot although I don't accept that the James Mason character was such a cad. I thought he was a normal, rather weak-willed man who gave in to temptation a bit too easily.

    I watched it tonight and I must say the DVD quality was excellent.

    Can't argue with that!

    Today I watched Thank Your Lucky Stars, having being reminded of it by another thread at HTF. Maybe I was in exactly the right mood but I loved the film more than ever before. The Warner Archive Blu-ray disc is absolutely superb.
