    Seeing Aunt Bee being political was funny but yes, a great film.

    Been watching, The Tin Star, With Henry Fonda. A simple western with a great cast. With a young Tony Perkins, I really like it.

    Who's Fonda's love interest again?

    She's Betsy Palmer. I think she did some early tv game and variety show things. But this movie is more about the relationship between bounty hunter Fonda and the new young sheriff Perkins. Fonda and Palmer do go off together with her son in the end.

    Betsy Palmer also played Jason's mother in the original Friday the 13th.

    Well, I guess there's no need to see the movie, now.

    Thanks Staun!

    Hey Staun, aren't you a big western fan? If so, starting this Monday night at 8 eastern are six westerns starring Glenn Ford on TCM: July 15 schedule.

    BTW, Ron, your favorite movie is going to be on Saturday at noon.

    I also just discovered that on July 18, starting at 8pm, TCM's showing four John Frankenheimer movies that star Burt Lancaster: The Train, The Birdman of Alcatraz, The Gypsy Moths, and Seven Days in May.

    I haven't seen The Gypsy Moths but I highly recommend the other three. They're three of the best movies made in the '60s. So if you haven't seen any of them, set your DVR!

    Wow, what a big change for her I would guess. It's like asking Donna Reed to play that part.

    Can you even have spoilers on a 60 year old movie?

    That's because he's a big Basil Rathbone fan.

    The Train and Seven Days in May are excellent.

    I just saw an episode of Family Guy that was a parody of 12 Angry Men. It was surprisingly good.

    My brother is a big fan of that show and is always telling me to watch it. I don't find it quite as funny as he does.

    That doesn't surprise me, given your avatar.

    She was also the killer. Jason didn't become the killer until part 2! I'm sure most people know that already, of course.

    That's correct.

    I saw that in the theaters when it first came out. I actually went a second time with some friends. I was the only one in the theater who knew the ending, so I sat back and watched a room full of grown people scream at the top of their lungs. It was hilarious.

    When I was in art school in the early 80s, we had a visit form Tom Savini, who was local (Pittsburgh) and a friend of one of our teachers. He brought along a bunch of props. "Creepshow" had just come out, so he had the Pickman's Model mask, which was cool. We also had a blast tossing around Betsy's head from that first movie.

    "The Incident" from 1967, starring Martin Sheen & Tony Musante, both in their film debuts, a very young Beau Bridges, and renowned thespian Ed McMahon. Pretty tight, tense thriller about a couple of young toughs that terrorize a NYC subway car.

    I know it's not B&W, but I just finished watching What's Up, Doc? on TCM. First time I've seen it in ages. Still made me laugh. And Barbra Streisand was never sexier.

    I forgot to mention that if you miss a movie on TCM they upload all the movies, shorts, etc to their website and they can be viewed online for a week.
