They sound very interesting, Rosie ! :D
Bombshell - the Hedy Lamarr story
I saw where that's on Netflix, Ed. I'm hoping to see it soon.
Unless I need it for research for something I'm writing, or it's one of the new major Oscar winners (e.g. I have every Best Picture), I don't buy DVDs. With all the movies on cable, I seldom watch DVDs any longer.
Well, then you can contribute in this thread instead! ;)
One of my favorites as well, John.
Most recent purchase: THE KINETOPHONE. While this may not be of general interest, it's especially fascinating to Vitaphone fans like me. We've heard all the stories of how they flopped, and the technical problems. Seeing them is something of a revelation, because today we can synch them better than in 1913! I've watched the collection three times already!
What are your favorites in that collection?
Just picked up James Edwards, Frank Lovejoy, and Lloyd Bridges in Home of the Brave. Also, managed to find Powers Booth's Philip Marlowe series for HBO.
I picked up several DVDs of Broadway shows. John Cullum in a revival of 'Shenandoah.' Would you believe The Night of the Hunter as a musical on Broadway? (They've also done Psycho and The Silence of the Lambs as musicals, but I've yet to order those.) Also, Clue. Also picked up a Hallmark Hall of Fame episode of 'Arsenic and Old Lace' that starred Tony Randall, Boris Karloff, Mildred Natwick, and Tom Bosley. Then Art Carney, Marion Lorne, Elizabeth Montgomery, Fred Gwynne, Charlotte Rae, and Jack Weston in 'Harvey.' And I have another version of 'Arsenic and Old Lace' heading my way with Lillian Gish, Helen Hayes, Bob Crane, and Gwynne.
Did anyone get any new (classic) DVDs for Xmas? I only got a couple, but they're two good ones. I got a recent discovery that I love, Hobson's Choice, a 1954 David Lean film starring Charles Laughton. I also got Our Town, which is in the public domain, but I was hoping for a nice, clean transfer. This one has supposedly been digitally remastered from original negatives. I've only seen Our Town once, and that was online on my laptop screen, so I'm looking forward to seeing it again. I found it very moving the first time.
