That would be awesome! I'll keep an eye open for it and look forward to discovering some more gaping holes in my cinematic knowledge... : )micklas wrote:Dawtrina -- The best 100 sounds like a good idea. I might do that on my blog soon.
To my mind, the best part of exploring classic cinema is the process of discovery: finding new favourites that I'd never heard of before. As I mentioned in my last question, your books introduced me to a few whose filmographies I'm eagerly working through, but I'm still discovering.
On occasion I rediscover someone I already know, like David Manners who I knew well from the Universal horrors but suddenly saw in a completely new light after The Miracle Woman. Sometimes it's someone completely new discovered through someone else, like George Arliss who I 'discovered' in The Millionaire while working through the Cagneys.
To a greater or lesser extent, I hope that process of discovery never ends.
Who are your latest discoveries? Who have you 'discovered' recently, even if it's someone you're just seeing in a new light?
