Re: CHICAGO (1927) Coming From Flicker Alley Soon!

What a hoot. I'm saving my nickels!

I enjoyed the Ginger Rogers/William Wellman a lot too.

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

Picadilly is so polished, and it allows Anna May to be a complex, human character, rather than merely an Asiatic prop in a Caucasian narrative. [That said, I DID just send away for a copy of "Daughter of the Dragon," so I do have my Jingoistic tendencies as well]. I probably need to look a...

Re: The Good News Thread

I don't know how I overlooked this thread before. What a lovely gesture setting it up. Thanks, Moira. Well I'm working again, after ten months. It's a fantastic place--an embarrassment of riches. Today was my third day. I made the most of the hiatus, I guess; I learned how to produce sheet music for...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

I'll take your word for it re. KR's sex appeal. My 11 year-old had a school assignment on the 50s and asked me to help him find a signature Sci-Fi film to digest and write about. We looked at a spiffy little documentary I happened to snag on TCM called Watch the Skies , in which Lucas, Spielberg, Ca...

Re: Universal's Vault Series

Hi CharlieChaplinFan. Whenever I read your posts, in my head I hear Chaplin's voice waxing philosophical a.la. Limelight. Strange how penetrating it is. That hung-dog expression-ed RB is from Angels Only Have Wings. I picked it because I've been out of work for months and months and have been feelin...

Re: Did Louis B Mayer really sabotage John Gilbert's career?

Paging Mr. Obvious: I had recorded "Flesh and the Devil" and "Love" a while back, but just now (yesterday) got around to seeing them. I think John Gilbert is great! [But you guys knew that already]. The print of "Love" is interesting because there's a live orchestral sc...

Re: Universal's Vault Series

Hi everyone. This might not be exactly the right place to post this, but...I've been in contact with a guy who has a website where he makes copies out of his collection. He as a lot of great titles. He was always very careful to say that he only sells films that are not commercially available, and e...

Re: In need of a suggestion.

Hi everyone. I pestered Jon a little to get approved asap to post on this topic before the thread got cold. Many thanks Jon. I have three sons, 26, 11 & 9. The 11 and 9 year olds--Henry and Felix--are with me every weekend. Last year, Henry was doing a school report on the Model T Ford, and I we...
