Now Playing: JAN 16., 1962

Opening today in Baltimore.

Turner Classic Movies is showing this film at 4:00 A.M. on Jan. 18, 2012 as part of their month-long tribute to fourth-billed Angela Lansbury. According to Bret Wood on the TCM website, Baltimore actually got this film before New York, which in this era usually meant that the film was a dud the studio didn't want the metropolitan critics to see. TCM has a trailer available as well.

The second feature has a Swedish cast but is directed by classic Hollywood helmsman John Cromwell, with Patrick O'Neal as a token American. The New York Times gave it a mixed review. "If only the picture had stuck to sex," Howard Thompson laments.

Lexington, KY: Paul Anka in a film about juvenile delinquents.

Here's a positive review from a film-noir blogger,  and here's a trailer uploaded by brutallodotcom.

Tune in tomorrow for more!
