In honor of basically my favorite film of all time, we're having special screening on Monday Night.  I mean, who doesn't want to watch the film that’s part gothic horror, part tragic romance, and complete savage expose of the Studio System?

 

Louis B Mayer watched it in a private screening, and told Billy Wilder that "You have disgraced the industry that made and fed you.  You should be tarred, feathered, and sent back to Austria." To which Wilder replied: "I'm Mr. Wilder, and you can go fuck yourself."

Witness the tale of "an insurance representative lets himself be talked by a seductive housewife into a murder/insurance fraud scheme that arouses the suspicion of an insurance investigator."  From a script co-written by Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler, with iconic film noir cinematography by John F. Seitz, it's 1944's Double Indemnity starring Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwick, and Edward G. Robinson.

 

 

 
(LOL, "Trigger Warning" for Eddie just being Eddie. :rofl: )

If you are only going to watch one of the classic film Noirs, I would recommend "Double Indemity. It has all the classic ingrediants, and has two great performences, Fred McMurray as the poor schmuck who falling the trap of a Trapdioor spider of a Femme Fatale, in a great performance by Barbara Stanwick. Not to be missed.

Hey Everyone!

 

I want to thank everyone for joining in over the past couple days. I am having a lot of fun, and I hope you are too, and I look forward to continuing this for as long as we’re having fun. 
 

I just added a pole, about what days work best for people. Since there was some talk about moving it to Sunday.

 

After Sunset Boulevard on Monday, I’m going to put up another pole to decide what movies people wanna watch that week! :)

We are moving this to 4 PM today. My day got mixed up, and I forgot it was Saturday.

I'm a late sleeper (movie would finish way past midnight in my time) either way so this still works for me.

Burt Lancaster, Paul Scofield, and Jeanne Moreau start in John Frankenheimer's The Train.  Based on the historical events, "In 1944, a German colonel loads a train with French art treasures to send to Germany. The Resistance must stop it without damaging the cargo."

         Took a second thanks to some screwy stuff on my end, but the room is now live:

Sorry couldn't make it all the way through today's showing of The Train @Cap. I've been on the road for a few hours now, and am now at a beach resort in Maine. I can definitely show up for the Sunset Boulevard showing on Monday, though.

Tonight's Special Feature of Sunset Boulevard is available on AmazonPrime if you want to stream it on your own, and just join the chat for funsy.  When you do that, make sure to join the chat without your audio.  We're going to be starting around 10PM EST.  You DEFINITELY want to hang out, cause no joke, one of my favorite films EVER.

 

@Jason @Fancyarcher @DAR @MrGamer @MrPink @Rorschach @Eric Skywalker @RealLyre @lorddemaxus @Darth Lehnsherr @Lion Roar @Jake Gittes @grim22 @charlie Jatinder @Alpha @Ethan Hunt @MrGamer  @The Panda @4815162342

 

Also, turns out that my Monday Night Trivia got moved to Wednesdays.  So despite that being the folks wanted, that's not happening anymore.  Polls it back up.

 

We haven't decided this weekday movie yet (either going to be Modern Times, The Women, or A Man Called Adam).  We'll show it on Thursday.  I figured we could decide that after SUNSET TONIGHT.

 

This Saturday's will be: The Bad and The Beautiful by Vincente Minnelli starring Lana Turner and Kirk Douglas:

Bad and the Beautiful is one of the best "Hollywood on Hollywood" moives ever made.

Came out in roughly the same time as "Sunset  Boulevard" and has a similar cyinical view of the film industry.
