Dance Scenes That I Love: The Vampire and the Ballerina and Murderrock

You know what?

I may have shared this before.

But you know what … I have had an incredibly long day so I’m just going to share it again.  This is from the 1960 film, The Vampire and the Ballerina.


And, just because I love you, here’s an extra bonus dance scene from Lucio Fulci’s 1984 film Murderrock!

And, finally, here’s the trailer for Ithaca!


Ithaca is the directorial debut of Meg Ryan, who apparently used to be an actress of some sort.  Ha ha, I’m just kidding!  I know how Meg Ryan was, though it’s easy to forget at times…

Anyway, this appears to be a Tom-Hanks-Wears-Suspenders type of movie.  The whole trailer has Oscar wannabe written all over it but the film is being released in September.  September is technically Oscar season but not at much as November or December.

Anyway, here’s the trailer!  Enjoy it, Middle America!

Here’s the LATEST trailer for Masterminds, that film nobody’s really that interested in seeing!

Remember Masterminds?  It’s the comedy film from Jared Hess that nobody was really that interested in seeing when it was scheduled to be released in 2015.  Of course, as a result of a production company going bankrupt and some other legal stuff, Masterminds wasn’t released in 2015 and nobody really noticed.

Well, apparently, the film is finally going to be released this September!  You may want to see it or you may not.  Myself, I’ll just keep hoping that someone will finally get around to doing a sequel to that movie with Jesse Eisenberg and Danny McBride.

Here’s the latest trailer.

Here’s The Trailer For The Great Wall!


Oh my God, I just watched the trailer for The Great Wall and it looks like it might actually be a lot of fun!  Monsters are threatening to destroy the Great Wall of China but don’t worry!  Matt Damon’s there and he has a bow and arrow!  Add to that, the film is directed by the great Zhang Yimou and it was written by Max Brooks, the man who wrote World War Z!

Seriously, this looks like a lot of fun to me.

The Great Wall will hit theaters on February 17th, 2017.


Pre Code Confidential #6: Jean Harlow in THE SECRET SIX (MGM 1931)

(Once again, your Cracked Rear Viewer is taking part in the TCM Summer Under The Stars Blogathon, hosted by Kristen at Journeys in Classic Film. Just like last year, I’ll be posting on two stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age: Jean Harlow (8/7) and Boris Karloff (8/26).)

Before she became The Platinum Blonde Bombshell of 1930’s Hollywood, Jean Harlow played a pivotal role in early gangster films. She was James Cagney’s second moll in the essential THE PUBLIC ENEMY, and a slutty seductress in THE BEAST OF THE CITY. In THE SECRET SIX, Jean plays a temptress who turns on the mob in a wild Pre-Code film that represents another milestone for Miss Harlow: it’s her first of six with costar Clark Gable.


Wallace Beery plays Slaughterhouse Scorpio, who rises from the stockyards to the top of the gangster heap. He accomplishes this by brute force, bribery, and rubbing out his…
