TCM This Week! GODZILLA!
Tuesday at 6am is THE ASPHALT JUNGLE which is a tight little crime drama and a film noir classic. Great cast and fast paced.
CRIME DOCTOR is on Friday at 230pm, the first in a film series of crime dramas-- this is a good start to a series that was fun. Its a neat little programmer that entertained audiences in 1943 and it'll still keep you watching.
Saturday is the day though--
730am BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935)-- it's the best of the series, even better if you watch it with the original, but it's a dark horror comedy that's worth getting up at 730am on a Saturday for.
Following it is GODZILLA KING OF THE MONSTERS (1956) which is actually a really good movie-- the original Japanese version GOJIRA is brilliant-- but this one is well done too. It's a take on the introduction of the nuclear age and its effect on the world. It's on at 9am.
CASE OF THE VELVET CLAWS (1936) is on at 1045am which is a solid entry in the Perry Mason series followed by TORCHY PLAYS WITH DYNAMITE (1939) which is a solid entry in that series.
The Essentials that night at 8pm is THE LADY EVE (1941) with Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda. It's a good comedy, it's fast paced and it's almost as good as it thinks it is. There's just a lot of silly plot holes you have to look past to get into it.
