I've Been Going to the...MOOOOvies


Recommended Posts

Finished my David Bowie movie marathon (for his birthday January 8 and his deathday January 10) with these two. I saw "Christiane F." about a year before I went to Berlin and it prepared me for the real Zoo Station. You literally could not make this movie today.

Something light and funny and amusing…and, coincidentally, both set in France. "The Aristocats" is the last film Walt Disney greenlit before he died. One of the last classic animation films from the golden days of Disney's "Nine Old Men": Ollie Johnston and crew. Splendid voices in the cast…Sterling Holloway, Eva Gabor, Phil Harris, Scatman Crothers, Nancy Kulp, and Pat Buttram. The Jazz Cats "Ev'rybody Wants to Be a Cat" scene is swinging.

I watch this every Inauguration Day, or during the week leading up to the day. I doubt if any current House and Senate members have ever seen it. Capra-corn at its finest.

January 18 was the birth dates of Cary Grant (1904), Françoise Hardy (1944), and Takeshi 'Beat' Kitano (1947), and so I had a movie marathon that night of some of their movies.

Some very big surf and/or currents in the winter in that area. People need to understand the risks.  A few days ago there was 12 year old boy swept away and killed by a rogue wave up there near SF. He was there at the beach with his father and brother, and from he photo of him he didn't look like a kid who grew up on the West Coast.

Here is SoCal there are always a few boarders and body surfers who end up with broken necks on big days at a place down in Newport Beach called "the wedge" near the harbor entrance. On a really big day the waves are funneled into an area by the breakwater and jetty where the waves get vertical very quickly and then break pretty much right just a foot or so of water.

It looks like the wave doesn't even have time to form and it's over. Looks too damned crowded there to me. I'd rather be out on the end trying to catch some rockfish. :)

At the Goodwill or thrift store or on the internet? I hope you didn't have to pay full-price for those relics. Some of the sexual politics of those movies have dated quite badly and, of course, the Jerry Lewis movies will depend on your tolerance for Jerry Lewis. I know some people who cannot and will not watch any Jerry Lewis movie at all. Oh well, at least "Boeing Boeing" has Suzanna Leigh…and the always fun Thelma Ritter.

Found them for A few dollars each on dvd at a local / mom & pop CD store. I like his older movies with Dean Martin (paramount pictures) and a few of the others afterwards.

Lots of dudes getting axed or going over the falls in that video.  Worst thing about the Wedge on days like those are the high probability of getting nailed by flying boards--- or flying pieces of boards.  The place is not for the faint of heart when that winter south swell comes in.  

 

 

And this clip from the famous Bruce Brown 1966 Film "The Endless Summer"   I mean... since we are talking about movies here

Even though I lived in SoCal for several years back in the late 80's - early 90's I never surfed. More of a swimmer as surfing takes skill and balance, two things I am in short supply when it comes to sporting activities. Figured if I tried it I would be the schmuck who drowns in 2" of water after wiping out on a baby wave.

I don't know why some of the pics are squashed up, but if you click on them they come out right.

Maybe admin changed image configuration for the site or something???
