the fox movie channel should really show the original films too...
23 July 2003 | by (new york, new york) – See all my reviews



instead of showing these 47 minute tv remakes again and again. it is nice that they restored them, and they seem very proud of them, but the original films most of them are based on have better casts, are twice as long, and some of them are never shown at all on the fox movie channel, like christopher bean (1933) with lionel barrymore and at least 2 members of the broadway cast (george coulouris + beulah bondi), while the hour of stars remake is in heavy rotation lately. same situation with the late george apley with ronald colman and its hour of stars remake, and i'm sure several other cases as well.
