I needed something short. This is 8 minutes. It’s from Australia. Did I mention it’s short. A lot of effort sure went into it. Yep.
First viewing. Could only find it on YT.
This movie was released in 1949. My dad suggested this to me, knowing I like film noir of this period and love Victor Mature, however he neglected to mention it’s a comedy with song and dance (and gangsters). However it must have made an impression because he remembered it after all this time, and that is strictly to the credit of Betty Hutton. She sings and dances her head and ass off and is generally batshit. Victor Mature collects a paycheck.
Love these little Ruth Etting shorts. They’re like music videos but with the slimmest of stories.
First viewing, a Mads Are Back riffed film that I saved in my iPad to watch in the plane ride home.
Late 50’s crime nonsense with a very young Vic Tayback and never young Coleman Francis. You know you’re in for a fine film when the cast credits are misspelled. (Also starring not that Glenn Campbell).
First viewing, last movie at mom and dad’s, watched it after they went to bed.
I saw one of the sequels to this a few years ago, I can’t remember which one. There are a lot. I’m not a Mr. Bean fan but I am a Blackadder fan so I much more enjoy Rowan Atkinson when he is being suave-adjacent.
This movie had a few laugh out loud moments, which for some reason I rarely experience when I’m alone. Like when he gets his tie caught in the sushi conveyer.
I liked it overall, it was refreshing.

First viewing, on the plane going back to Arizona.
I’d heard this was good but I’d only seen clips of the normal scenes and read about how well done the lighting and details were, and yes, it was all that. Plus it has some good philosophy shit.
I was not expecting this, a cat and Tina Fey’s voice.
Pretty enjoyable and reading about how it was made was interesting, too.
Love these little movies that are just an excuse to show Ruth Etting singing. In this one she is a singer married to a doctor who doesn’t want her in show business and hates show biz people.
|If I was a doctor and came home to this I’d be mad, too.|
First viewing all the way through because I was committed, it’s really awful.
One of those movies that happened to be starting on TCM when I was looking for a movie so I watched it. My personal rule is that if I’ve watched more than ten minutes I have to watch the whole thing. Despite having a few of my favorite actors (Julie Christie, Goldie Hawk and a teen Carrie Fisher) it’s blech.
First viewing, suggested by Lisa in Hawaii
Queen fan from way back but not enough to have ever bought an album, they were a few years before my time. Dr. Brian May did reply to one of my tweets once, that was pretty exciting. Really good movie, loved the resemblances to the actual band members and I didn’t even recognize Mike Myers.
First viewing, suggested by and watched with my friend in Hawaii.
Many viewings, Watch Party hosting this time. Excited to introduce people to this movie! Read viewer words here! I want this poster SO MUCH...
