Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

I like The Major and The Minor as well. I know some get creeped out over the "age difference" but I like the way Ginger plays the role. I haven't seen The Lost Weekend in forever. I thought it pretty good. It is not one I have revisited but should again just to see if my opinion would be d...

Re: WHAT SILENTS & PRE-CODES HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Yesterday I saw " The Vanishing American " (1925) a fine Western directed by George B. Seitz starring Richard Dix (who's very good and believable in his role) as a Native American living in a Reservation Camp in the West during the time of WWI. Dix plays a decent, honest, likable, pacific...

Re: A morning in the Western world

A war picture comes to mind but unsure which one. Unless it is "The Great Escape.""3 Godfathers" has a scene where a water tower scene where Ward Bond tries to head them off. Of course, there is the opening credits to "Petticoat Junction" which I always thought was a bi...

Re: A morning in the Western world

To April's point about TROOPER HOOK and THE STALKING MOON (see first post) and would agree that is really isn't a remake and also that the latter can be slow and without much of a soul to it. Aside from one scene where Peck invites Saint and the boy to join him in the meal and feel free to talk abou...

Re: Some less known Fredric March films worth seeing

I somehow missed the charm of "I Married A Witch." Having finally seen it I didn't find it all that funny. I'll agree with the nice marks for Kellaway and Benchley and I generally always like March. Fantasies generally aren't my cup of tea and this didn't do anything to change my mind. Ben...

Re: Gaslight (1940) vs. Gaslight (1944)

FInally saw the 1940 "Gaslight." As stated there is much to be said for Dickinson's direction. He moves the camera quite a bit and always very smoothly. The final tracking shot that ends at a street lamp is especially good. The set design is quite good too as the house is just covered in a...

Re: Our Family Album

Masha, you are the one I thought of as I posted. I knew that my impending situation would be ever so slight in comparison. It is an amazing story and one that certainly proves any situation is possible to overcome. All of you have shared stories that encourage me and those that will find this later....

Re: Our Family Album

Thanks. Good for you for overcoming your challenge. To me it is much more difficult than my upcoming road. I'm glad music helped. I've played the piano most of my life with an amateur's level but nonetheless have always found it quite a pleasant distraction. It has allowed me a very satisfying life ...
