Bad Movie Alert!Update
If you're up very late tonight, say around 2 am, and you have cable, you have to tune into the Turner Classic Movie channel for this gem:
A retired gangster has to pull off a hit when his daughter is kidnapped.
Cast: Gleason, Carol Channing, Frankie Avalon. Dir: Otto Preminger. C-98 mins, TV-14
So bad the family of late director Otto Preminger (Laura; Anatomy of a Murder, In Harm's Way)has refused to have it released on home video! Find out why tonight! (For more info, click here.)
(Interest in Mr. Preminger and his work is currently being revived via Foster Hirsch's new biography, Otto Preminger:The Man Who Would Be King, which the library carries, and by the showing of several of his much better classic films at New York's Film Forum. Go here for their film schedule.) -Ed
