Hey Bill, are you being a smidge sneaky with me on this particular one? (if you get my meaning)

Correct! Review: The Defiant Ones (1958)

It was coincidence that we were just talking about Tony Curtis, not sneakiness. My wife read Sidney Poitier's autobiography and wanted to see his films.

That's why I thought you were being sneaky, seeing as I was raving about Tony Curtis in The Boston Strangler, I thought you were posting the Defiant Ones in response.

Also, Claude Akins was immediately recognizable, even in gorilla makeup in Battle for the Planet of the Apes. I think I first saw him when I was a kid on the classic Twilight Zone episode "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street".

That's one of the cool things about this thread. It's a great introduction to some great films of which you may not be aware (and some not so great for that matter).

Let me rephrase that. If Al Davis was ever young, that would be what he looked like. wink.gif

The Defiant Ones (1958)

-Bill

Back in the early 1980s (I think), my movie buddies and I used to frequent some very popular "revival" movie theaters around the Los Angeles area. This particular theater in the San Fernando Valley was featuring a double bill of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers and Singin' in the Rain, which attracted a huge crowd of fans. We lined up around the block hours ahead of time. We were lucky enough to make it inside only minutes before the Sold Out sign was posted and there was still half of a block of disappointed fans on the outside. From my vantage point at the snack bar I remember looking back to see the great Claude Akins at the door, standing on the outside and asking the manager if they could possibly find a couple of empty seats in the house since his friend had come all the way from Riverside to see this screening. Sadly, even one of the most recognizable faces in movies and television could not move this mountain. There simply were no more seats available and, no, I wasn't going to relinquish mine either. Such was the power and pull of seeing certain movies in their original aspect ratio (Singin' had gotten plenty of play in these theaters at the time, it was Seven Brides, a relative rarity in the revival theaters, that was the big draw this time!), in a theater and with an audience in those pre home theater video days.

A few months ago I happened to catch this one on TCM. Don't remember seeing it before even though I'm also a big William Holden fan. Btw, it wasn't TCM in the USA...it was TCM on a cable/satellite system in Thailand with Thai subtitles! Of course, it helped that I recognized the lovely Ms. Parker in the pic.

Correct, Next - 2007.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

Starring Nicholas Cage, Julianne Moore and Jessica Biel. Very loosely based on the Philip K. Dick novella The Golden Man. Early script treatments had the story follow the book version more closely however with time it was completely rewritten with the main character in both stories only sharing the ability to look into the future. It probably has more in common with the Groundhog Day movie where the protagonist keeps changing the outcome of each time projection. They differ in that in Next the set point of the story keeps advancing. So in essence it's a movie about time travel which is a subject I have a weakness for. The story opens many paradoxes that go unexplained.

The movie was generally panned by the critics. I revisit this title every few years mainly because of Cage.

Correct! On seeing a gun in space.

I love that movie. I remember one reviewer describing it as like sticking your head in a garbage can while pro wrestlers bash it with golf clubs. I don't turn it up that loud.
