THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
September 30, 2017  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This 1952 movie is presented by TCM as one of “The Essentials,” and presents Kirk Douglas as an unscrupulous Hollywood producer (or is that redundant?). His various tactics and abuses are recounted, in turn, by a director, a writer, and a actress. They’re played, respectively and memorably, by Barry Sullivan, Dick Powell, and, sigh, Lana Turner.
