The Chess Scene from The Thomas Crown Affair (1968)



Yma Sumac in Secret of the Incas (1954)



Ida Lupino in Road House (1948)

Podcast 26 This Weekend


This time around I'll be looking at three more films. The often forgotten 1948 film noir Road House starring Ida Lupino, Richard Widmark and that old friend of Paleo-Cinema Cornel Wilde, Secret of the Incas starring Charlton Heston, Robert Young and Yma Sumac, and that great victory of style over substance, 1968's The Thomas Crown Affair starring Steve McQueen, Faye Dunaway and Paul Burke.

James Allen Whitmore, Jr. (October 1, 1921 – February 6, 2009)


James Whitmore, a class act of an actor has died. He was the gangster Slug in Kiss Me Kate, singing "Brush Up Your Shakespeare" brilliantly with Keenan Wynn, he was the cop who finds the little girl in the desert in "Them", and he was magnificently good and poignant as Benteen in one of the very best of the original Twilight Zone episodes On Thursday We Leave For Home. Whitmore was also a US Marine in World War II and fought on Saipan. But here is one of his very last screen appearances and though it's brief, it seems to capture the man in a tough, touching way.
