Movies to Tape

April 08, 1990

Laurel and Hardy's Laughing '20s (TNT Monday at 9 a.m.): This 1965 anthology is one of Robert Youngson's best vintage comedy compilations, highlighted by many of Stan and Ollie's most memorably hilarious moments and also featuring Charley Chase. (2:00)

Phantom of the Paradise (Channel 5 Monday at 1:30 a.m.): This 1974 release is a rock "Phantom of the Opera" with a touch of Faust thrown in for good measure by Brian De Palma. Delightfully outrageous and actually one of the best tellings of the Phantom fable, it stars Paul Williams, who also composed its ambitious score. Edited. (2:00)

Lifeguard (TNT Thursday at 7:20 p.m.): This 1976 release is one of the overlooked gems of the decade. Sam Elliott stars as a dashing yet reflective Southern California lifeguard on the wrong side of 30 whose encounter with Anne Archer at a high school reunion proves pivotal. Written by Ron Koslow and directed by Daniel Petrie. (2:00)
