If you haven’t seen it in a while, I’d recommend checking out Walt Disney Animation Studios’ perennial classic Cinderella (1950). The film is being added to the prestigious U.S Library of Congress National Film Registry this year. It’s also being “released” from the proverbial “Disney Vault” on digital platforms on June 18 and on Blu-ray on June 25.

On the big screen, make sure to check out the baseball and Father’s Day classic Field of Dreams (1989), which is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Part of this year’s TCM Big Screen Classics series, it will be wonderful to see this film with a beautiful digital print and in a theater with a bunch of crying dudes (myself included). The film will be screened on Sunday, June 16 and Tuesday, June 18. Check fathomevents.com/tcm for a screening near you. The film is also available on digital platforms and Blu-ray.

My TCM Essentials viewing project continues (link to the Jeremy Arnold book is here; link to my original blog post is here). Make sure to check out Preston Sturges’ unique and delightful screwball comedy The Lady Eve (Paramount, 1941). I rented it on iTunes/Apple TV.

SPOILER ALERT: This podcast contains some mild spoilers for Avengers: Endgame. I’ve got a spoiler-free review on the blog. Proceed at your own risk.

The big show in town this weekend is Avengers: Endgame (Marvel Studios). I was able to see the film earlier this week and I share some thoughts about it on the podcast (and see the spoiler alert above).

Classic Cinema Corner

The latest TCM Essentials film was the Civil War epic Gone with the Wind (1939). I recorded it on my DVR while I was at the TCM Classic Film Festival and watched it during a couple of sessions this week (given the film’s four-hour run time). Can you believe that the film is still the all-time box office champ (adjusted for inflation, of course)?

  • Shazam! (Here’s a link to the opening theme from the 1974-76 CBS television show; and it’s interesting how “Shazam” the super hero used to be known as “Captain Marvel”–more details about that here)
