Movies to Tape

September 10, 1989

Hell's Angels (AMC Sunday at 1:45 p.m., again at 10 p.m.): Howard Hughes' legendary 1930 World War I saga is often hokey on the ground, but its sequences of aerial warfare are still among the most exciting ever shot. Jean Harlow is pretty hot stuff too. (2:05)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Channel 7 Sunday at midnight): One of the best British films of the '70s, featuring a skittish triangle between a gay physician (Peter Finch), his bisexual lover (Murray Head) and Head's other lover (Glenda Jackson). (2:15)

The Ghost Goes West (Channel 11 Monday at midnight): The delightful Rene Clair 1936 classic in which an American businessman (Eugene Pallette) transports a castle to America, stone by stone, only to find that it is haunted (by a lively Robert Donat). Written by Robert Sherwood. (1:30)

Patterns (Channel 11 Tuesday at midnight): Fielder Cook's 1956 film of the Rod Serling drama about a corporate power struggle, adapted from a landmark "Kraft Television Theatre" play. With Van Heflin, Everett Sloane and Ed Begley. (1:30)

The Big Sleep (Channel 5 Friday at 3:10 a.m.): The terse, convoluted '40s classic, directed by Howard Hawks from the Raymond Chandler mystery, adapted by William Faulkner (among others). With Humphrey Bogart, the definitive Philip Marlowe, and a suitably sultry Lauren Bacall.
