Classic Movie Saturday

We just finished a Classical Musical day.

Everything from Hooray for Hollywood, Greese, The Sound of Music, and one of my favorite musicals....West Side Story.

I must say, West Side Story is just as powerful as it was in 1961.

Asking the expert....
Do you just assume any film with Gene Wilder is a Mel Brooks film ?
Excuse me if I’m wrong.....

Nope, I realize who Mel Brooks is. As with Jerry Lewis and the Three Stooges, I have never been a fan of silly movies. Silly being used as an adjective, knot a critique.

You didn't mention McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair tonight at 19:00 on TCM. Also, if you stretch weekend through Monday morning you've got The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Stagecoach, and The Long Voyage Home one after another starting at 09:15.

Sorry to disappoint, but we have decided to pospone Classic Movie Saturday until monday. Forecasted temps are in the 90's. Ragmama would be happy staying in A/C watching.

Don't forget Bullitt. Not much of a movie but certainly has one of the best car chase scenes. Front row viewing when I was a kid.

Rags, whats on the playlist for today?

Bullitt is good but wasn't showing. TTCA was showing later that evening so I mentioned the time and channel for it.

Can't go wrong with a Blake Edwards movie, especially if Peter Sellers is in it.
