Hollywood Goddess Merry Anders and Johnny Desmond, in Escape From San Quentin. At this point in the film, Mike Gilbert's partner (played by Richard Devon) is sort of in charge of this little heist that they're trying to pull. But they're really just looking for short-term cash, as they figure out their next play. Film Affinity: An escaped convict decides to quit running and turn himself and his fellow escapee in to the authorities - but not without complications.

Saw Escape From San Quentin not this weekend, but the weekend before it. I think this is a very claver prison/crime film, especially how the two inmates get out of San Quentin. And the story with them on the run is pretty good too. Rotten Tomatoes: An ex-airman (Johnny Desmond) flies himself and another convict (Richard Devon) out of prison, then hides with his wife's sister (Merry Anders)

Billy Wilder's The Apartment (1960) with Jack Lemmon and Hollywood Babydoll Shirley MacLaine. Definitely one of the funniest and best holiday movies ever, with a great comedic cast, including Jack and Shirley. Amazon: Winner* of five 1960 Academy AwardsÂ(r), including Best Picture, The Apartment is legendary writer/director Billy Wilder at his scathing, satirical best, and one of "the finest comedies Hollywood has turned out" (Newsweek). C.C. "Bud" Baxter (Jack Lemmon) knows the way to...
Saw Birdman of Alcatraz a few weeks ago. (Thanks, TCM) It really should've been called the Birdman of Leavenworth, because most of the film takes place there. But it's still an excellent Burt Lancaster film. Amazon: How does bitter convict Robert Stroud cope with a lifetime of solitary confinement? The answer, in a sense, comes from abovein the form of a feeble sparrow he finds in the isolation yard. Stroud brings this newfound companion to his cell, nurses it to health and, from that point...

Saw Malcolm X over the weekend. (Thanks, TCM) I could've done without the 1st hour which doesn't even get into his time as prison, let alone as a leader of the African-American-Nationalist movement in America. But the last 150 minutes of this film are fascinating. And Denzel Washington is literally one of the best actors of his generation. TCM: Biographical drama on the life of the late Malcolm X, who was assassinated on February 21, 1965.
I love the Betty Field character in Birdman of Alcatraz, except one thing. She's so sweet, intelligent, beautiful, has her own business in Indiana. And yet seemed so lonely to the point that she would go to two-time murderer Robert Stroud (played by Burt Lancaster) for companionship. A man who never gets out of prison. TCM: Betty Field as Mrs. Stella Johnson Stroud in Birdman of Alcatraz (1962).
Cage of Evil from 1960, with Pat Blair and Robert Foster. TCM host Eddie Muller really beats the hell out of this movie on his Noir Alley show and I agree this film is cheaply made, but it's actually a pretty entertaining and good film, with a good cast. TCM: "A cattle driver finds himself stuck working for both sides during the Civil War."

If you love not just Hollywood films (I think most movie fans do) but movies that are about Hollywood and a look at the Hollywood entertainment industry, I think The Oscar with Stephen Boyd, Tony Bennett, Jill St. John, Eleanor Parker, Elke Sommer, and many other great people in Hollywood, is a great film for you. IMDB: Snotty Hollywood actor becomes even more full of himself after he's nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor.

Cutie Katey Vernon and Denzel Washington in Malcolm X. Kate Vernon does not play the babe in the woods in this film. She's definitely a bad girl. IMDB: Denzel Washington and Kate Vernon in Malcolm X (1992)

Hollywood Babydoll Jeanne Crain and actor Elliot Reid in Vicki. He was very good as the suspected killer in the film. He was definitely innocent and took no junk (to put it mildly) from Detective Ed Cornell (played by Richard Boone) who was intent on putting him away for the murder.

What I want to see from the #NBCNews #Democratic debates, is someone other than a #Socialist or #JoeBiden to emerge and become a real alternative: so we're not stuck between either the #FarLeft and say it ain't so Joe. "Deadline NBC News"
Will a Democrat tonight emerge tonight who isn't a #Socialist, as someone who can defeat both #JoeBiden and President #DonaldTrump? I believe that's the question that Democrats have to answer. "Deadline Democratic Presidential Candidate Debate"
Watching #JoeBiden vs. #KamalaHarris last night, reminded me of the fight between Ron Lyle and Muhammad Ali: they were going back and forth before Ali, caught Lyle with a lead right. Kamala, took down Joe in that exchange, with basically one punch. "slate.com Kamala Harris and former Vice President Joe Biden."

Back in the late 1990s when #CNN's #WolfBlitzer interviewed #DonaldTrump, The Donald actually came off as reasonable and intelligent: 20 years later, what the hell changed him? "CNN.com What Trump said about North Korean nukes in 1999. In a 1999 interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer ..."
As damaging as the testimony that #MichaelCohen could give against President #DonaldTrump could be, given the fact that Cohen was Trump's attorney for ten years, #AllenWeisselberg could be an bigger power play against Trump, because he was the #TrumpOrganization's CFO going back 40 years and is so familiar with the Trump Family's finances.
Whether President #DonaldTrump only serves 4 years, ( and the damage he creates is manageable ) or her serves 8 years, ( and America goes to hell ) divorce rates will go way up under his watch. "HuffPost 4 Political-Opposite Couples Who Are (Miraculously) Still Together | HuffPost Life"

#Socialist Senator #BernieSanders, on #CNN tonight for his presidential townhall. #WolfBlitzer, asked him, "would private health insurance plans be eliminated under your #MedicareForAll plan?"

I'll be honest as a guy: Disturbing Behavior is not a great movie and this is coming from a Gen-Xer. But Cutie Katie Holmes looks great in the whole movie. And is really the only reason why I watch it. UTC: "Katie Holmes in Disturbing Behavior (1998)"

Saw Zero Hour over the weekend. (Thanks, TCM) If you are familiar with the disaster genre from Hollywood in the 1970s and like those movies, you'll like Zero Hour as well. Dana Andrews, Linda Darnell, and Sterling Hayden, as well as I believe some Canadian actors. Dana Andrews was also in The Crowded Sky (1960) and Airport (1975) so I guess you could call him a veteran of this genre. IMDB: "In 1950s Canada, during a commercial flight, the pilots and some passengers suffer food poisoning...
Saw this film last night (thanks, TCM) and I was very impressed by it. Excellent film noir, with plenty of drama and fear, as well as beautiful, adorable, sexy women, that keep your eyes glued to them. IMDB: "An FBI agent investigates the murder of his partner by taking over the 3 cases he was working on, determined to find his killer."
Whatever you think of Governor George Wallace the man and politician, I think you have to say that Gary Sinise did a helluva job playing him. IMDB: "Gary Sinise in George Wallace (1997)"

I always get the feeling that Fran (played by Shirley MacLaine) was never happy or have much self-confidence, in The Apartment.
The Apartment with Jack Lemmon and Hollywood Babydoll Shirley MacLaine. Bud (played by Jack Lemmon) is about to go upstairs to get his promotion, because he's been such a good boy with the execs. And Fran (played by Shirley MacLaine) being the adorable sweetie pie that she is, wants him to look good.
Hollywood Babydoll Gloria Grahame in Odds Against Tomorrow. Had she had a bigger role in this film, I would've liked the film a lot more. She's always very memorable. The Film Archives: First off, this Robert Wise film written by Abraham Polonsky (using the front name of John O. Kilens because of the HUAC blacklist) has a fabulously fatalistic noir title. Harry Belafonte (also producer here helping drive the film to be made)’s Ingram is a gambler as well to give the set up and title an added..

I obviously don't know if Kevin Spacey is innocent or guilty here. But if he is guilty, the phrase "some people never learn" seems very app with him. Especially considering what he's put his family and career through the last 5-10 years.

Spacey was also charged with one count of causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual...
I'm not a fan of #HowardStern, but not many people at least in New York know #DonaldTrump as well as he does: so his interview with #CNN's #AndersonCopper, should be fascinating.
#HowardStern, opening up a lot to #CNN's #AndersonCooper, about his own life and #DonaldTrump. A very interesting interview
