Return of the Sunday Morning Western and More From April 2016 in Films

Sorry this is a few days late! I was out-of-town all week for my 6th TCM Classic Film Festival – my first as part of #TCMHQ! I had a blast! Although I only saw two films (when I usually see 15 to 17), I got to see one of my all time favorite films The Endless Summer (and met director Bruce Brown!), as well as Rocky (which is always great on the big screen). I also finally met Serge Bromberg from Lobster Films! It was a great fest. As always, a list of everything I watched in April – plus a few favorites – can be found after the cut.

Movie Quote of the Day – Side Street, 1950 (dir. Anthony Mann)

Harriet Sinton: It was real sweet of you to buy that bottle, hun. You got real nice manners, Joe. I like nice manners. I like you, hun. I like you a lot. “My love is like a red, red rose that’s newly sprung in June. My love is like a melody that’s sweetly played in tune.” You like poetry, hun?  That’s Robert Burns. “A Red, Red Rose.” George hated poetry. He hit me once when I recited Robert Burns. He hit me right in the eye. George was no good.
Joe Norson: George?
Harriet Sinton: My fiancé. My ex-fiancé. George had no manners at all.

Movie Quote of the Day – The Tin Star, 1957 (dir. Anthony Mann)

Sheriff Ben Owens: You notice everything, don’t you?
Morg Hickman: I notice you’re wearing your guns too low.
Sheriff Ben Owens: That’s where Sheriff Parker wore his.
Morg Hickman: Parker’s dead.
