It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
TCM, 5pm
Catch a Classic!

Comedy films aren’t often produced on a grand and epic scale, nor are they often nominated for Oscars, but once in a while there are exceptions to one or both of these cases. Such an exception is this hilarious 1963 classic from director Stanley Kramer that was one of the first — and is still one of the greatest — epic comedy productions. Nominated for six Academy Awards (winning one for its sound effects), the sprawling film boasts a roughly two-hour-and-40-minute run time as it chronicles a wild road trip among various memorable characters racing to be the first to find the location of a stolen fortune divulged by a mysterious stranger they have each come upon while driving along a desert highway. Spencer Tracy heads the unforgettable cast that includes featured roles for some of Hollywood’s greatest comedians and comic actors — Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Buddy Hackett, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Dick Shawn, Phil Silvers, Terry-Thomas and Jonathan Winters among them. The film also includes cameo appearances (some uncredited) from nearly every other legendary joker in the business, including Buster Keaton, Jimmy Durante, Don Knotts, Jerry Lewis, Jack Benny and the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and “Curly” Joe DeRita, who get one of the movie’s biggest laughs without even saying a word in a very brief appearance). A comedy this big and star-studded had not previously been seen, and we’re unlikely to experience anything like it again, so enjoy.

The second season picks up in 1977 — five years after the founding of the national oil company Statoil — and ends in 1980, tackling the transforming years where a burgeoning industry is growing uncontrollably. After the first years of giddy success comes a wave of great disaster: Well 14 at Ekofisk Bravo blows out, causing a massive sheet of oil to creep over the ocean, heading for the Klondike fishing bank — which for centuries has been the wellspring of the Norwegian economy. Environmental politics is put on the agenda for the first time. Then industrial safety follows in 1980, as the hotel platform Aleksander Kielland capsizes and 123 people die, trapped inside. Season 2 revolves around issues of safety, women rights, environmental protection, and the power of profit. How much are the lives of our families and friends worth? Has Norway sold off its future?

Deep Sea Cinema: Sea Monsters, Sharks and Creatures From Below, Part Two: Octopi
TCM, beginning at 8pm
Catch a Classic!

Turner Classic Movies’ deep dive into movies featuring creepy sea creatures continues tonight with films that include memorable scenes, if not entire plotlines, devoted to tentacled terror from giant octopi. The evening begins with Below the Sea, a 1933 action film about an underwater expedition, starring Ralph Bellamy and Fay Wray. After that is It Came From Beneath the Sea (1955), led by Kenneth Tobey and Faith Domergue, about a giant octopus rampaging along the Pacific coast of America after being awakened by nuclear testing. The film features terrific stop-motion special effects by the legendary Ray Harryhausen, particularly near the end, when the beast attacks the Golden Gate Bridge and other parts of San Francisco. Up next is Tentacles (1977), a delightfully cheesy Italian-made film about a seaside resort terrorized by a giant octopus. The film seems like it was quickly made to cash in on the “killer sea creature” horror trend that came in the wake of Jaws, yet its cast somehow manages to include some famous actors: John Huston, Shelley Winters and Henry Fonda. The lineup winds down through late-night and early tomorrow morning with Warlords of Atlantis, a 1978 British adventure film led by Doug McClure; Beneath the 12-Mile Reef (1953), an adventure film following sponge fishermen off the coast of Florida, starring Robert Wagner; Isle of Fury (1936), with Humphrey Bogart in one of his first leading roles, as a fugitive gangster hiding from American justice in the South Pacific; and Sh!

Follow the Thread: “Films That Changed Everything”
TCM, beginning at 8pm
Catch a Classic!

Turner Classic Movies’ Follow the Thread series, which looks at various themes surrounding fashion on the big screen, continues with an examination of how the complicated interplay between fashion and costume design can cut in both directions. Fashion trends certainly influence costumes, as filmmakers try to authentically capture an era or a subculture, but sometimes the clothes in a film are so visionary that they capture the public’s imagination and begin to push the fashion world in new directions. That was the case with this evening’s two movies. First up is the 1955 classic Rebel Without a Cause, one of only three feature films that James Dean made, released about a month after his death in a car accident at age 24. This film truly defined his persona; while Marlon Brando started the youth-rebel trend in The Wild One in 1953 with just the basics — jeans, T-shirt and jacket — Dean came along and took the archetype to a different level in Rebel, changing both film and fashion forever. The film was a smash, especially with teenagers, and his wardrobe helped to define youth style for many years. Following that is Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless (1960). As one of the most important films of the French New Wave, this movie had an extensive and undeniable impact on Hollywood filmmaking, and partly because of that, its impact on fashion can sometimes be overlooked. Starring Jean Seberg and Jean-Paul Belmondo, the film pays homage to Hollywood classics but is completely original, including in its wardrobes. Seberg’s clothes are simultaneously casual and sexy; her skinny black pants, ballet flats, simple T-shirts and striped tops, combined with her pixie haircut, helped to create a tomboyish look that remains popular.
