Bad Movie Alert

The OscarIt is my civic duty to inform everybody of two intriguing bad movies coming up on Turner Classic Movies. Sure, you can always catch a screening of Lawrence of Arabia or the umpteenth showing of Father of the Bride, but how often does one get to see The Oscar (1966)? TCM will be showing it this Monday at 11 p.m. EST, introduced by Bill Maher. I can remember seeing bits of this Hollywood potboiler on the TNT channel way back in the day, and I can’t wait to check out the whole enchilada. This one begins with an actor (Stephen Boyd) at an Oscars ceremony, reflecting on his past as he awaits whether or not he’ll win the Best Actor award. It also stars Elke Sommer, Milton Berle and Tony Bennett (one can picture Bennett’s agent saying something along the lines of “Trust me, Tony, this’ll make ya a big time movie star!”). At least seeing it will at last illuminate SCTV‘s parody The Nobel, with Catherine O’Hara doing a perfect, cross-eyed Elke imitation.

As if that weren’t enough, TCM will also have the notorious 1980 musical The Apple on their schedule later this month. Probably hoping nobody will notice, they have it set for a 2:00 a.m. EST showing on the morning of Saturday the 21st. Personally I can’t vouch for the quality on this one, about an international music making competition set in the far-off futuristic era of 1994. It could either be fabulously awful like Xanadu or painfully awful like Can’t Stop the Music.

Oh, and another reason to live — a new Two Bunnies and a Duck! Click on the TWC button on the right to vote for my little baby.

2 Thoughts on “Bad Movie Alert

  1. Take my word on this — The Apple finds entirely new ways to be awful, previously unknown to mankind.

  2. Thanks for the warning, Vince!
