Joan Fontaine on TCM: Jane Eyre, Suspicion, The Constant Nymph

Joan Fontaine in Alfred Hitchcock's Suspicion Joan Fontaine, who turned 94 last October 22, shines on Turner Classic Movies' tonight. TCM will be showing five Fontaine movies: Jane Eyre (1944), The Constant Nymph (1943), Born to Be Bad (1950), Suspicion (1941), and Ivanhoe (1952). I've yet to check out The Constant Nymph, which had been unavailable for decades until TCM presented it a few months ago. In the film, 26-year-old Fontaine plays a 14-year-old infatuated with a composer (Charles Boyer) married to her older cousin (Alexis Smith). Edmund Goulding directed.

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans - We speak to Nicolas Cage and Werner Herzog.

Born to be Bad (Together). Nicolas Cage & Werner Herzog on 'Bad Lieutenant.' Being bad, or completely believable at playing bad, gives Nicolas Cage the ability to sit back on a sofa at an all-white interior, ultramodern rooftop bar and command complete silence from the workers preparing for the pending evening shift. Hollywood hits like the "National Treasure" movies have made the 45-year-old Californian famous but the artistic freedom he discusses has more to do with edgier choices, like his latest film, "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans" (currently in select theaters and expanding nationwide). In the film, something of a remake of Abel Ferrara's 1992 indie drama, Cage plays Terence McDonagh, a decorated New Orleans police detective steadily losing his grip on reality to drugs.
