    I neglected to mention, Jed, that HBO Max & TCM have some kind of deal (or are owned by the same company) where HBOM has a TCM portal where you can watch a lot of older movies. I've never done an actual comparison but I don't think TCM's current movies are on that portal. Still, you can find a lot of classics there.

    I caught Kelly's Heroes on TCM yesterday. The exchange with the German tank sergeant always delights me.

    Big Joe : That's about 65 million marks.

    Kelly : And sergeant, all you have to do to have an equal share of this money is crank this turret around and blow a hole in that door.

    And then...

    Like Jed mentioned, "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" is awful. I've always heard that "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" is another contender for worst, but I've never seen it.
    I saw Killer Tomatoes at a bad film festival decades ago. Itís bad, but I discount it because itís really a parody of bad movies, intentionally bad. Itís really just dumb, IMO.

    Final weekend in June on TCM, all Hitchcock. Looks like about 20 movies back-to-back.
