7 Faces of Dr. Lao (1964) - This is a Western/Fantasy/Horror film starring Tony Randall and Barbara Eden AND directed by effects legend, George Pal. The synopsis: A Chinese showman uses his magical powers to save a Western town from itself. (I have not seen this film, but I've heard a lot about it. definitely gonna DVR it.)

Finally done getting the TCM schedule typed out. "Singin’ In The Rain" tonight is the highlight. Also "Mildred Pierce" next Saturday night and three films I put at the top to DVR because I’ve never seen them. Orson Welles "The Third Man", the film-noir "Ace In The Hole" and a very weird Western/horror/fantasy called "7 Faces Of Dr. Lao".

Movie watch update. StubobNumber's been watching classics.

Two legit great 9.5/10 or higher films included.
I’ll start with the two films y’all really should see as well at some point.

"Ace In The Hole" (1951) – A frustrated former big-city journalist now stuck working for an Albuquerque newspaper exploits a story about a man trapped in a cave to rekindle his career, but the situation quickly escalates into an out-of-control circus.

Starring Kirk Douglas and directed by Billy Wilder. This movie rules.

"Mildred Pierce" (1945) – A hard-working mother inches towards disaster as she divorces her husband and starts a successful restaurant business to support her spoiled daughter.

This movie is great. I had seen it years ago and loved it then. I re-watched it today and still love it. Just such a good film.

The next two films I also enjoyed today.

"The Third Man" (1949) – Pulp novelist Holly Martins travels to shadowy, postwar Vienna, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend, Harry Lime.

Joseph Cotton is great. Orson Welles is groovy. Worth a look.

"The Lady From Shanghai" (1947) – Fascinated by gorgeous Mrs. Bannister, seaman Michael O’Hara joins a bizarre yachting cruise, and ends up mired in a complex murder plot.

Very atmospheric? Yep. Very noir? Yep. Very complex narrative web? Oh my yes. Very much worth a look as well. Stars Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth.

Movie Triple Feature: "The Show Must Go On".

I have watched three movies for the first time this morning, and two of them are now in my favorites.

First off was "Phantom Of The Paradise" (1974) – A disfigured composer sells his soul for the woman he loves so that she will perform his music. However, an evil record tycoon betrays him and steals his music to open his rock palace, The Paradise.

This movie rocked my face off. Phantom Of The Rock Opera mixed with Faust and Jessica Harper’s debut. 9.9/10! Love it! Will watch again!

The middle feature was "Theater Of Blood" (1973). Vincent Price is a spurned actor who kills theater critics with murders out of Shakespeare. It was fine.

And the grand finale was "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" (2019). This movie rocked my face back off. I love how they re-created 1969 L.A. This may be my new favorite Tarantino film.

Turner Classic Movies is having a great double bill in their TCM Underground block in the middle of the night tonight.

"Chopping Mall" (1986) – A group of young shopping mall employees stay behind for a late night party in one of the stores. When the mall goes on lock-down before they can get out, the robot security system malfunctions, and goes on a killing spree.

and

"Night Of The Creeps" (1986) – This movie has alien brain parasites, aliens, zombies, Tom Atkins, an axe-murderer, great lines, and Tom Atkins.

I LOVE these two movies. If you want entertaining horror-comedy cheese, then these are definitely for you.
