Magic moments

Turner Classic Movies has announced a memorial tribute to the late Patricia Neal that’s slated for Monday, September 13 beginning at 8:00pm. The lineup will include:

08:00pm Private Screenings: Patricia Neal
09:00pm The Fountainhead (1949)
11:00pm The Subject Was Roses (1968)
01:00am A Face in the Crowd (1957)
03:15am In Harm’s Way (1965)

Ben Walsh of the Independent tallies thirty “movie moments that tell the whole story.” I haven’t seen all the films on his list, but I’m glad he included such TDOY favorites as Klute (1971), Citizen Kane (1941), The Apartment (1960), Dr. Strangelove (1964), Raising Arizona (1987), Sleeper (1973), The Third Man (1949), It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) and Picnic at Hanging Rock (1975).

And the L.A. Times’ Robert Lloyd reports that Death Comes to Town, the Kids in the Hall reunion project, “isn’t a laugh riot…but it’s good.” I want to see this regardless—it premieres on IFC tonight and if the CharredHer cable gods smile upon me I might get to see it via IFC on Demand (that’s how I saw the six-part Python documentary) because..."I can't stop thinkin' about this Tony guy!"
