Saturday Morning Classic of The Day

Oh, how I loved these. This was always my favorite one in the series.

Weird Movie Trivia

More crunchy trivia goodness from Eddie D.

An American Werewolf in London (1981) contains an end credit congratulating Prince Charles and Princess Diana on their recent wedding.

Political correctness took hold in Slam Dance (1984). The "Best Boy" is instead credited as "Best Person"

Solomon and Sheba (1959) includes a credit for "Orgy Sequence Advisor."

The Making of 'The Cotton Club' (1985) involved so much litigation that the end credits include the law firm representing the successful litigants.

"Roach Wrangler" is one of the end credits in Creepshow (1982)

A title at the beginning of Bill (1923) warns audiences that the film includes 'no love interest" and "no mechanical thrills."

The Italian silent film, The Old Testament (1922), was released in America in three versions with three different sets of title cards: one for Jews, one for Catholics, one for Protestants.

During the 1930s, supporting player Dorothy Jordan was always given star billing when her films played in her hometown of Clarksville, Tennessee, however minor her role in the movie.

Australian film, The Bit Part (1987), misspells the name of its star, Chris Haywood, in the opening credits.

"Fangs by Dr. Ludwig Von Krankheit" is an end credit in Dance Of The Vampires (1967)

80s comedy Night Patrol (1987) has its end credits in French. No reason is given.

Must-See Movie of The Day

RFK, a documentary in PBS' American Experience series. I like docs, and this is one of the best I've ever seen. My knowledge of Robert Kennedy was limited before watching this, so the entire film was one revelation after another, and deeply moving as well. See for yourself in this opening scene.
