TCM has been having this great bit on Thursdays in January: New York vs. LA. Last night it was dating, NY v La, so: Annie Hall, Modern Romance, Shampoo, The Clock, The Bad and the Beautiful. (Last week? Showbiz. So: 42nd Street, A Star Is Born, All About Eve, Sunset Boulevard, The Producers.) I just couldn't turn it off...such a fabulous lineup. In some ways? The Clock a way sexier fiim than Shampoo, although W. Beatty sure is deadly in it. I am a huge sucker for The Clock. A really beautiful lil film. It benefits so much from V. Minelli directing the NY we see behind the two main characters.
