It is so interesting to know about the Technicolor parts of "Ben Hur." I had never heard of that.
33. Head from 1968. This is a movie with the Monkees, and it is in color, but I understand that there are clips from several earlier films, including The Sign of the Cross, The Black Cat (1934), Golden Boy, and Gilda, plus others. These are in black and white.
The other participants have been thinking of some interesting movies!
Here's one I've been longing to post!
34. Joan the Woman (1916)- tremendous silent epic ten-reeler directed by Cecil B. DeMille and starring Geraldine Farrar.
Remarkable and sweeping portrayal of the life and sacrifice of French martyr Joan of Arc, Maid of Orleans, witnessed through the eyes of a World War One Soldier.
A fatigued Officer, Eric Trent (Wallace Reid) fighting in the trenches of Normandy, on a suicide mission, experiences a vision when he finds Joan of Arc's sword. In the vision, he is approached by Joan and travels back in time to the 15th century as his ancestor, engaged in battle with the English troops against King Charles VII and the French.
The movie is shot in black and white, with segments of colour tints. Almost at the finale, when Joan is burning at the stake; in a segment, yellow and red is used to emphasize the effect of the billowing flames.
Sorry I haven't been on here in a while. I've been really busy. This category seems to have stalled. I propose we change to a new category. Does anyone have any good ideas?
