Warren Oates Day On TCM


    Coming up on Aug. 24 is as part of their Summer Under the Stars Series its a full day of the great Warren Oates on Turner Classic Movies. The days programming contains the usual suspects such as the classics THE WILD BUNCH and RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY, however there's some hard to see gems buried in there - including the still not on DVD western THERE WAS A CROOKED MAN from 1970 and the 1973 comedy THIEF WHO CAME TO DINNER.
    Also of interest is the excellent 1968 caper film THE SPLIT and in what is one of Warren's finest performances in Sam Peckinpah's grungy & sweaty neo noir road trip from hell BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA (where you get to see Peckinpah directing Oates who is playing Peckinpah). Sounds like a good day to find an excuse to stay home.
