The Golden Age of Hollywood

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 SG1 movie called ARK OF TRUTH. It was quite good and any Stargate fan would probably appreciate the film. I must say that I also bought the soundtrack for the film and in this rare occasion I love the soundtrack more than the film.

So, what was your latest DVD purchase or purchases?

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.

I didn't get any new movies this year at all. I did buy my wife the BBC comedy called Keeping Up Appearances. It's one of her favorite comedies ever. She bought me the BBC comedy Good Neighbors as it's my favorite Briitish comedy. And that's really the only things we got each other this year. At our age we just don't need anything anymore and being on a fixed income makes us more conscious of our spending habits. Besides you can watch almost any movie ever made online if you know where to look. :)

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 […]
