gaslight: Frankenheimer's probably by favourite director. I'm holding off on Grand Prix because once I do it, that's it.While I don't have an official metric for Saturday Cinema, I try to avoid really current films and obvious choices. The most recent one I did was Monsier Lazar 'cause this Oscar-nominated film was probably obscure to most Farkers and given Garner's passing, Grand Prix, Grand Prix was the obvious choice. For that reason I passed on it.I really considered doing Support Your Local Sheriff, actually.I don't really have a decision system for Sat Cinema other than follow the advice of Burt Lancaster and Clyde Gillmoure. Lancaster was a mega, mega, mega, mega, mega star of the 50s and 60s and who apparently chose scripts in an alternating cycle: one for the box office and one for the art houses. That's not a bad model to follow. The other dude, Gillmoure, was a broadcaster and newspaper columnist who was on the radio for most of my life. He had a programme called Gilmoure's Albums that could get anyone to listen to any piece of music. Once he made a case for a musical track, even if you hated that genre, you at least understood something about it.Obviously, the other thing that goes into Sat Cinema is that there have to be some movie clips somewhere floating about. The object of the exercise is that I'm just a regular Farker who'll probably he here up until the lights get turned out and it's my contribution to help get discussions going and make the place fun.
gaslight: If you like comic westerns from that period, George Kennedy was paired with Sinatra in an outing called Dirty Dingus Magee. Sinatra was now in the downside of his films and was making films about five years too late. Turns out Seaton did another WW2 thriller just before this one with the catch title the Counterfeit Traitor.RoyBatty: Is that Rod Taylor as a GermanYep.
