MOVIES TO TAPE

July 18, 1993|Kevin Thomas

The Greatest Show on Earth (Family Channel Sunday at 3 p.m.) is all-star saga of life under the big top. Cecil B. De Mille was the ideal director to bring this 1952 rousing story to the screen.

Deathwatch (Bravo Monday at 5 and 10:30 p.m.) Bertrand Tavernier's ambitious and dazzling 1980 allegory set in a future when virtually no one dies of disease. With Harvey Keitel, Harry Dean Stanton, Romy Schneider and Max Von Sydow.

Opening Night (Cinemax Wednesday at 6 a.m.) John Cassavetes' harrowing study of a stage star (Gena Rowlands, superb) in crisis; not only evokes a woman's fear of aging but reveals the often excruciating demands placed upon the actor by his craft.

Le Grand Chemin (Bravo Thursday at 6 p.m., Friday at midnight) Jean-Loup Hubert's fine 1987 autobiographical French film starring his son Antoine as a shy city boy adjusting to an unhappy rural household.
