    Thank you, TCM for showing this 'Prize' with in a cake of sub-, to mediocre Film. As such, from the 1st viewing, upon Its initial release, through College Film Art Festivals through the viewers of today. We 'ALL' agreed. The 'ONLY' segment worth the viewing is Fellini's. I can remember being at two different College Film Festivals where the audience, several minutes into the film stomped and whistled, shouting for the projectionist to skip to the Fellini segment. And spent the next 2 hrs. just watching and re-watching this 'minor' masterpiece. Fellini nailed the sentiment that Poe, expressed in this story. That the Devil, will show, or 'Act-Out', the part that best fits your expectations of him. Be it a Man with Horns or a pitch fork, or a 'little girl'; a monstrous Demon, or purity of innocence. from both angles; for the 'little girl' who haunts & taunts, Toby, to the 'bedeviled' voluptuous and Haute Couture persona of 60's Beauty: beguiling him with whispered tones of 'Fulfillment through and with Him.' Fellini captures; no, pre-dates such films as "Bedeviled", or "The Devil Wears Prada", re-capturing the empty vanity of 'ALL' Oscaresque type awards and shows,either they be in America or Europe, with the Actors and Producers, et al all willingly crossing the bridge over the Abyss and entering into the Hell of their own choice. Bravissimo!

    I work in a geriatric medical practice. we put TCM on everyday,and our patient population loves it. But today it was brought to our attention the movie Spirit of the dead had some nudity and was inappropriate for the waiting room. this is just an FYI.

  • why.

    This Movie would have been a whole lot more enjoyable if they just would have left Jane Fonda on the cutting room floor.Maybe it's just because I don't really like period pieces or men in those kind of wigs,or is it "whigs?" The other two segments that make up this movie are pretty good though.Click on the "articles" to the left of this screen and get some backstory for this movie,its pretty interesting. Benny.

    Never heard of this pic, Pourquoi! I saw 2 video clips and I'm hooked!: can't wait to see it tonight! I don't understand why not ONE moviephile, "Pro or "Amateur", (I'm not even sure what I meant by that!?) hasn't said 1 syllable about this picture. I mean, NO, rather, LOOK, (alot of Politicians like to say this word) this pic has a young Jane Fonda (and bro: Peter) and another "philly", Brigitte Bardot, a lil upstart who happens to be French(like the pic), also a fine and charismatic actor--Terence Stamp, and the always cool and creepy Vincent Price as Narrator!!!!!(1 for each *) Now, if all that wasn't enough, Did I mention this Movie was made in 1969,a very interesting year for Cinema (as well as Life!) and is Rated "R" ( I believe all films should be rated "R", simply because, Life, if rated, would also receive an "R", unless, of course, one IS the Devil(or 1 of His/Her disciples), and this pic is a French Flick!, Oui!, FRENCH, with a great title: "Spirits of the Dead"!!!, Well, my spirits are anything but dead!! lol(I just had to put one in, sorry), and last, but not least, we got critically acclaimed Louis Malle directing these sumptuous stars(with artsy and sophisticated special effects)based on Edgar Allan Poe's Ultimate Orgy!!!(at least that what the movie poster said). Now, call me maybe, or better, your Best Gal or Guy, Heat up the chocolate fondu(for the strawberries), cool down the Champagne, turn down the lights; light up the candles, slip into something sexy(or comfy, for you "PG" folks) Turn on TCM and let's see what( or whose) "Spirits" we can conjure up tonight!!!! NOW, if this mini-dissertation/review on a movie I've never seen, Doesn't "Get you Going", especially the second part, then perhaps your already DEAD!! Thus, you REALLY Need to watch this French Flick with a Friendly "Feline"(or "Canine")!! Hey, what am I talking about, I'm single, Call Me!! "Vive la France" and Jane/Brigitte too. P.S. On ne fait pas d'omelette sans casser des oeufs!!
