Hahahaha, for some odd reason I love that movie.

"Apparently I've insulted a monkey!"

Brilliant. Though I'm not sure why it's airing on AMC, though. That's supposed to stand for "American Movie Classics," right? A Tom Arnold movie classic? Hmmmm.... :bg:

Yep, AMC really did start out as a "classic movie channel." Then Ted Turner started his own "Turner Classic Movies" channel, and since he owned the rights to most of the genuine old classics - I think all of MGM and Warners, plus he leased exclusive rights to Paramount and RKO - theyd had much less of a bank of available films, and so went to being essentially a "rerun of any popular old movie we can get rights to" channel. And they added commercials.

And as a result I watch more AMC than I do TCM. :bg: I like the classics, but if it doesn't have Bogart, Monroe, Mansfield, Dean, or McQueen in it, I can take it or leave it.

Yep, the downside is that TCM has a looooooot of lesser known movies that they air, often as part of themes (like if it's Cary Grant's birthday or whatever.) Some can be really very good - I caught a Korean War film called "Porkchop Hill" with Gregory Peck recently, that was basically a low-budget precursor to "Saving PVT. Ryan" - unknown if Spielberg was actually influenced by it or not. If not, it just shows that war is the same all over. But with a cast of soon-to-be-stars, then-as-yet-unknown, including Robert Wagner, Harry Guardino, Rip Torn, George Peppard, Norman Fell, Robert Blake...

Another one like this was an utterly obscure Hammer film called "These Are the D_mned," with aging soap opera star McDonald Carey miscast as a jaded American would-be-playboy, a young Oliver Reed as a pre-Clockwork Orange juvenile delinquent... and the first half was done like a Bergman film on alienated youth and existential angst among the middle-aged.... but then it turned into a sci-fi thriller about radioactive children in an underground lab! :eek:

I even enjoyed a "marathon" of the 30's Nancy Drew films, which were shot for about $1.99 each, scheduled the weekend that the new one premiered in theatres. Star Bonita Granville was utterly adorable, and had spectacular...detecting skills. :love:
