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:
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:
I figure some of you may be interested in those last two!
Disney Marathon this Wednesday 12/20 starting at 8PM EST.
Some nice live action stuff!
Well, tonight (3/26), you have the long and short of it! Starting at 8PM there's The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), then Them! (1954). They could have paired ISM with The Amazing Colossal Man or Attack of the 50 Foot Woman but Them! is a much better film.
After that, you have

A man after my own heart ...
Tonight, starting at 8PM (EST), TCM is showing all four of the Matt Helm movies starring, of course, Dean Martin! They include:

I looked it up. Fox Classic Movies is no longer a separate channel. It is now branded as FXM Retro, which is part of the Fox Movie Channel. The "FXM Retro" showing older movies is generally in the morning. This is separate from the FX and FXX channels.
Emerkeith Davyjack said:...Does anybody get Fox Classic Movies? Does it stilll exist? It shared cable space with FXM, a movies-only extension of Fox's FX channel.
...I didn't see this until now, thank you, Richard!:-)
