What Does a Film Have to Have to Be Classified as a "Western?"

Started by Tim in Classic Action. Last reply by E.Roberson Feb 9. 15 Replies

Sounds like a dumb question, but it really isn't...does it have to fall within a theorectical limited period of time? Is it a matter of the location? Does it have to have stetson hats, six-shooters and/or horses? Or is it a matter of thematic…Continue

I thought it might be fun to see what everyone is purchasing these days. And please do NOT feel like you need to limit your response to just classic films. As a matter of fact my last purchase was not a classic film at all but the latest Stargate…Continue

Is anyone still burning classic movie DVDs off of TV, and how?

Started by Rosie Sayer in DVD/Video. Last reply by M.T. Fisher Oct 13, 2018. 8 Replies

It seems increasingly difficult nowadays to burn TV content to DVD due to copy protections. I was wondering if anyone is still doing this, and if so, from what channels, and using what sort of technology? I'd like to save to permanent storage some…Continue

DICK POWELL

Posted by Michael B. Druxman on January 30, 2019 at 8:52am 2 Comments

I am pleased to announce the publication of DICK POWELL, the 20th play in THE HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS Collection.
 
Dick Powell made a career of reinventing himself.
 
Born in Arkansas, the young tenor played horn, banjo and sang with various dance bands and orchestras in Pittsburgh and elsewhere before he was brought to Hollywood where he sang opposite Ruby Keeler and others in such classic Busby Berkeley musicals as 42ND STREET, FOOTLIGHT PARADE, GOLD DIGGERS OF 1935 and the Al Jolson film, WONDER BAR.

Bullitt

Posted by M.T. Fisher on October 7, 2018 at 5:18pm 2 Comments

I just saw Bullitt on the big screen, and it was naturally, a wow.  The car chase actually made me a tad ill, seeing them go over the hills of San Francisco that way in the cinema.  (McQueen's granddaughter said the same thing happened to her.)  And it's so nice seeing a good cop show in the movies where there isn't one computer being used.  Just good police work.

Treasure Trove of Pre-Codes

Posted by Rosie Sayer on September 6, 2018 at 5:12pm 3 Comments

Since I generally prefer to watch comedies, I have a lot of pre-Code melodramas/potboilers/morality tales in my collection that I still haven't watched. These were all gifts from friends. I have a huge backlog now, and today I was realizing what a treasure-trove it is.

I have several boxed sets of movies with dozens of Pre-Code movies starring great actors such as Loretta Young, Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, Fredric March, Claudette Colbert, Barbara Stanwyck, and on and on--all new to me!

I don't know much about these, but I'm curious to find out more. I'm currently watching Midnight Mary, starring a young and stupendously beautiful Loretta Young. She was 20 years old and already had 16 years of screen appearances behind her. Some of the other titles include:

Merrily We Go to Hell (Fredric March & Sylvia Sidney)

Hot Saturday (Cary Grant, Randolph Scott & Nancy Carroll)

Torch Singer (Claudette Colbert)

Search for Beauty (Ida…

DUMB IDEA!

Posted by Michael B. Druxman on August 9, 2018 at 7:37am 0 Comments

The Oscars are now going to add a new category, "Most Popular Picture".

DUMB IDEA!

The Oscars are supposed to honor the "Best Picture," not the "Most Popular".

The "Most Popular" Picture is determined by the box-office gross. Why does the Academy have to vote on that?

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
