Movies this Week: ZORRO!

Tonight on FMC is I WAKE UP SCREAMING at 8 and again at 9:30.  Great little pre-Film Noir movie which lays the groundwork for a lot of the later Noirs.

On Tuesday at 8pm TCM is showing Caesar and Cleopatra with Claude Rains and Vivian Leigh.  I haven't seen it, but it sounds pretty good.
On Saturday at 11:30am TCM starts the serial ZORRO RIDES AGAIN by showing Chapter 1-- if you aren't familiar with serials, sometimes called cliffhangers, they were continued adventure stories shown one episode a week to get you to come back each week to see what happened next.  This is one of the better ones, even though I think Zorro might sing in one episode.

Then next Sunday is THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD which is the movie that the kids are watching in the horror classic HALLOWEEN (1978)-- THE THING is an amazing movie with A-Production values and writing as a group of Air Force men have to face an angry space invader in the frozen arctic.
