Another TCM alert: tonight at 8PM it's airing "Doctor Zhivago". Definitely worth seeing as Hollywood film that actually showed how terrible life was in Soviet Russia. The only thing I don't like about it is its hero cheating on his cute wife with Lara. Otherwise, a truly great film with Rod Steiger stealing the show as the opportunistic lawyer Komarovsky.
Thank you for your sharing. I LOVE Jean Michel Jarre!
Not a fan of chick flix.
One of 2 or 3 movies I was roped into seeing around the mid sixties as a date movie.
Not my cup of tea. No...more specifically I hated thiis movie, ‘sound of music’ and a re release of ‘gone with the wind’. Women! They got me to many things I did not want to do.
Thank you for the heads-up! This is my favorite film so I’ll DVR while I’m watching Downton Abbey. Spend tomorrow with Dr. Z and Lara.
WD. Dvr the Dr. ;)
The funeral scene has the look of a horror movie. An amazing visual feast of a movie.
I saw the film at the Paramount Theater in Hollywood, Calif., in August, 1966.
Definitely a candidate for the best movie of all time.
RAN-One of my all time favorites
Yep, actually we’re dvr’ing both, since we got a youngster in the house and we dont need any distractions and WD is obviously not suitable either..
Ran is stunning.... beautiful and brutal. Another one of Kurosawa’s many great movies.
Good call. WD definitely not kid friendly!
Agree. After seeing Ran I was hooked on Kurosawa and his work.
The beautiful Latra(Julie Christie) was 17 when she was banging both Komorovsky and that other creep. So she moves on to a married Dr. Zhivago. It was a convincing love story and Geraldine Chaplin was the perfect(strait-laced) loser in the (not) triangle.
Thank you. I’m watching. It’s one of my favorites of all time. When i first saw it as a young woman, all i saw was the romance. Now,all i see is dangerous foreshadowing. Reminds me of “he who beats his swords into ploughshares will be the slave of those who don’t.”
When I first saw Zhivago in the mid sixties I though the black headed one, (his wife) was prettier than Lara.
I saw it recently and there was no doubt Julie Christie was way prettier.
I can’t figure out why the change but in the mid sixties I had a terrible crush on a beautiful black headed girl.
I later married a beautiful blonde or between blonde and light brown.
Once was enough for “Born Free.” Saw that one at Camp Zama as well. I’m betting our situation at the time was considerably more comfortable than yours. Thanks for your service and glad you made it back.
