Donen's "Staircase" Sighted!


My Friday, March 30 post was devoted to Cinema Obscura: Stanley Donen's "Staircase" (1969).

Well, good news.

This just came in from posterDaryl Chin:

"Staircase" alert! TCM will be showing "Staircase" in June as part of their focus on gays in Hollywood cinema series. (Other movies include "The Fox", "The Boys in the Band", "Advise and Consent", as well as a number of pre-code rarities.)

Actually, "Staircase" airs on Turner at 8 p.m. (5 p.m., pst) on Wednesday, June 27, followed by "The Fox", "The Boys in the Band" and, best of all, "The Killing of Sister George." My advice: Stay up all night - or tape.
