I meant to post this earlier but Night of the Lepus is on TCM tonight (4/15) at 11:30 PM EST.

This is one of those movies that I always heard about but never seen.

Of course, part of me wanting to see this is that DeForest Kelley is in it. As a kid, I was usually keen on seeing Star Trek actors in other shows!

The FXM Retro is more like a fourth than a half. The rest of that channel is FXM. The other two channels are the original FX and FXX. Here's tomorrow's schedule so you can see them all in parallel:

...Thank you, Richard, I saw this this morning. I may not be able to access the sked fully (I've been there already.) on this teenyteeny phone that is all I have here in this convalescent/nursing place I've been in temporarily these past weeks temporarily in the wake of my most recent toe-amputating diabetic operation:-(.

I found the Man of Bronze movie a bit silly in 1975, and never watched it again, even though I thought Ron Ely looked like he stepped off a paperback cover. 

However, there's a line in the movie that I still remember and has become part of the Captain Comics lexicon. At some point, Savage and his amazing five (or maybe just some of them) are in a pit with an old Hidalgo chief. And he says, in the most laughably hyper-dramatic way:

"We are all doomed to die a horrible death." 

You'd be surprised how often that line comes in handy.

I agree that Man of Bronze is campy to a fault, miscast in places (Monk & Ham) and went a bit overboard with the Sousa music but I liked it a lot and wish that they did do a sequel. And Superman: The Movie was campy in a lot of scenes as well.

Tonight (10/23) at 8PM is the decidedly non-campy The Elephant Man (1980).

For Saturday 10/28 early:

  • MARK OF THE VAMPIRE @ 6:15 AM
  • THE DEVIL DOLL @ 7:30 AM
  • WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? @ 9AM
  • LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS @ 11:30 AM
  • VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED @ 1 PM
  • CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED @ 2:30 PM
  • HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS @ 4:15 PM
  • NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS @ 6PM

I figure some of you may be interested in those last two!
