DVR Alert

Clear some space on the DVR - Monday night's Turner Classic Movies schedule, titled, "Sword Play," features five excellent swashbucklers: Tyrone Power in The Mark of Zorro, Errol Flynn in The Adventures of Don Juan, Jose Ferrer - in a rare Oscar-winning cape-and-sword performance! - in Cyrano de Bergerac, Raiders of the Seven Seas, and Cornel Wilde and Maureen O'Hara - as the daughter of Athos! - in At Sword's Point.

Check your local listings for times, as always - and seriously, isn't it well past time for you to delete Dungeons & Dragons: Book of Vile Darkness?

  1. I tried to watch that D&D movie...opening credits were so bad & overwrought I didn't even make it to the movie proper!

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I saw that Don Juan was playing, but missed the other films. Now if only I had a DVR...

  3. Won't be able to catch these tonight, but I did introduce my spawn to The Crimson Pirate on TCM yesterday morning. Verdict both the 8 year old and the 2 year old was thumbs up!

    1. I was eight years old when I saw Richard Lester's The Three Musketeers - and you see how I turned out!

    1. I've heard it said that Maureen O'Hara was the best female stage fencer in Hollywood in her day.
