Netflix Movie Fans

Here's how this works: Visit the TCM schedule for the month -- the link
for March is here -- and pick
five films that you want to recommend. You must
limit your choices to only five. Please include the title of the film,
the day and time that it's on, and why you are championing it. The idea
isn't that these are the best films of the month, just the five you
want to recommend. Feel free to choose standards or the more obscure.

And remember, if you have to decide between two films, try to choose
the one that is not available on Netflix

Is your cable/satellite provider the only one in your area? Do you have access to Direct-TV?

13 Sunday


2:00 a.m.          Le proces de Jeanne d'Arc        (1962)

                         Dir: Robert Bresson



 I've been wanting to see this for years now.

It was also mentioned over on this thread last year:


Speaking of which, I was able to see Bresson's The Trial of Joan of Arc just once, and would love to see it again.

The "absence of pizzazz" remarked upon earlier is indeed one of its stronger (bleak and/or stark) attractions, the dialogue in the screenplay based as it is entirely on existing transcripts of Joan's trial.


I love Shavian pyrotechnics and the delirium of Dreyer as much as the next person, but Bresson is another something special.


Here are a few of the things I'd be watching if I had TCM:


3 Thursday - 3 pm ET - Kind Lady - A con artist and his criminal cohorts hold an old lady hostage in her own home. Cast: Maurice Evans, Ethel Barrymore, Angela Lansbury. Dir: John Sturges. BW-78 mins



4 Friday - noon ET -  Between Two Worlds - [Victims of a London air raid wake up as p]assengers on a luxury liner [and] realize they are en route to the afterlife. Cast: John Garfield, Edmund Gwenn, Eleanor Parker [also Paul Heinreid and Sydney Greenstreet]. Dir: Edward A. Blatt. BW-112 mins



21 Monday - 3:30 pm ET -  Rage in Heaven - A jealous man plots to fake his death and incriminate his wife's suspected lover. Cast: Robert Montgomery, Ingrid Bergman, George Sanders. [Among the writers: James Hilton and Christopher Isherwood] Dir: W.S. Van Dyke. BW-85 mins



26 Saturday - midnight ET - This Woman Is Dangerous - A female gangster learns she is losing her vision. Cast: Joan Crawford, Dennis Morgan, David Brian. Dir: Felix E. Feist. BW-100 mins

AVAILABLE ONLY ON DV-R via Warner Archives


30 Wednesday - 4:15 am ET - The Bed-Sitting Room - A pregnant woman searches for love amidst the ruins of nuclear war [in this dark absurdist comedy from the creators of The Goon Show]. Cast: Rita Tushingham, Ralph Richardson, Peter Cook [also Dudley Moore, Spike Milligan, Michael Hordern, Mona Washbourne, Harry Secombe, Marty Feldman] Dir: Richard Lester. C-91 mins



The only one of these I've seen before is The Bed Sitting Room, and yes, once again I'm aiming for the hard-to-find.
