Peplum fans may wish to tune in to Turner Classic Movies at 6:30 AM ET on Tuesday, April 9, for a showing of the rare 1961 Rhonda Fleming film THE REVOLT OF THE SLAVES. This film has not had any DVD release and only appeared on a budget cassette many years ago. The film's score is by Angelo Francesco Lavagnino, and it too has not seen any release. Here is the film's trailer:

Turner Classic Movies is showing a little seen film called THREE at 10:00 AM ET on Tuesday April 9th. This 1969 British film was directed by James Salter and stars Charlotte Rampling, Robie Porter, and Sam Waterston. It’s about a female hitchhiker who creates tension between two friends touring France. The film has a score by Laurence Rosenthal. THREE is not available on DVD, but subscribers to Amazon’s PRIME service are able to stream it for free.



Curiously, if one checks the online TCM programming guide, rather than the earlier printed program guide, the credits for the film are listed as follows:

Dir: John J. Sughrue Cast: Antonio Fargas , Joseph Sirola , David Bailey .

There is a second 1969 film called THREE with that director and cast, but it has nothing to do with a female hitchhiker. Instead, that 52-minute film is a case history about three drug addicts, and was produced by the New York State Narcotic Addiction Control Commission.
