This Week on TCM: FIVE CAME BACK!
Thursday is THE THIN MAN at 11pm-- this 1934 comedy/mystery launched not only a film series but a genre.
Friday is TARZAN Day-- Tarzan from 6am to Midnight-- among the better Tarzan films (and I like them all);
1145am- TARZAN'S DESERT MYSTERY (1943) Tarzan fights giant spiders and Nazi's!
1pm- TARZAN TRIUMPHS (1943) Tarzan kill more Nazi's!
345pm- TARZAN'S SECRET TREASURE (1941) This one's crazy!
8pm- TARZAN THE APE MAN (1932) The First one is a little talky at first, but stick with it-- elephants stomping pigmy's ALERT!
10pm- TARZAN AND HIS MATE (1934) Banned in seventeen countries for years because it's the raciest of all the Tarzan films-- and it's GREAT.
12am- TARZAN ESCAPES (1936) One of my favorites!
Saturday brings us NIAGARA (1952) which is a GREAT Technicolor Summer movie that looks and feels like a Hitchcock and is Marilyn Monroe's BEST film hands down.
SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959) is the ESSENTIAL on at 8pm-- I've never seen it, I love Billy Wilder, like Jack Lemmon, think Marilyn Monroe is OK and don't like Tony Curtis so that's why I've never given it a try-- but I bet it's good. Why don't you watch it and let me know what I'm missing.
That's TCM this week-- see you next week for more Movie Recommendations.
