ye baw that was some good fun. my fav was GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933. wasn’t as hot on 42ND STREET (the only one maltin gave 4/4) but maybe that’s cos it was at the tail end of a tcm binge. i’d like to revisit it sometime. the swimming pool numbers in FOOTLIGHT PARADE were absolutely mind-blowing
tmr at 5pst we’re being blessed with the THE SHOPWORN ANGEL starring the immaculate jimmy stewart. can’t wait for that one!
non-stop noir tonight folks. starts at 5pst. the asphalt jungle, crossfire, out of the past, out of the fog, naked city. some real heavy hitters among those directors and actors
Kim Novak interview with Robert Osborne, done at the TCM April 2012 film festival.
Well, I did miss this when it was shown on Turner last month. However, found this on Youtube. Not sure if we have any Kim Novak fans here, but this is an enlightening and very personal interview from Novak, talking about her life, her career, and her decision to get out of the film business. I have seen many of her films, but this interview highlights a couple I still need to see. Thought this was one of Robert Osbourne’s best, as he got Novak to really open up re her life and personal struggles. On my computer, the sound fades out for a few minutes at about the 40 min. mark, making it impossible to hear some of this.
I have thoroughly enjoyed her film work since I was a kid and fell for her in Bell, Book and Candle.
Some good stuff coming on this month in the Second Looks series Friday nights in May. They are showing films that didn’t get much recognition on their initial release, but have been re-evaluated since. Showing some gems like: The Arrangement, Ace in the Hole, Our Man in Havana, The Loved One, and Mickey One.
Thanks for Novak link, Enygma. Can’t wait to check it out.
Novak, by the way, will be in Cannes later this month as the festival’s guest of honor to present the restored print of Vertigo. She will also take part in the closing ceremony.
