The Golden Age of Hollywood


We've done many categories since this game started. I announce the current category in the game, but if you can't find the announcement, just ask any of the players.
There's a game I play every chance I get with anyone who knows about movies. It's very simple: we pick a movie category and take turns naming titles of movies that fit in the category. For example, "films with a number in the title," or "films with hospital scenes" or "films with Joseph Cotten." I thought I'd see if anyone here wants to play.

Since there's no way of knowing how many people would want to join in, we can't take turns, so let's do it this way: only name one title at a time and wait for someone else to name one before you go again. The game ends when either we can't think of any more titles, or we reach 50 titles (because I know some people could go on and on way past the point where I would get bored with the category). So please mention the number we're on when you name a title.
It's no fair using IMDB or other sources, but if you run across a title by accident while the game is going on, it's fair to use it.
I'll start, and for the category I choose "films in which a fire occurs" (not a fire in the fireplace). The fire doesn't have to be depicted, just mentioned. This is a hard category for me, because it will mostly be composed of dramas, and I'm more into comedies, but here goes:

Do we think we've exhausted this topic, Rosie?  

And does anyone have any suggestions for a new one?

Actually thought of a new topic !  How's this  ??


 i.e. movies where there is the aftermath of a natural disaster.  I'm thinking snow storms, tidal waves, blizzards, volcanos erupting and other events compliments of Mother Nature.

Could  this be a starter?

Great choice, Karen. I'm up for it, we need to get the ball rolling again!!!

Let's do it, John!  :D   

Rosie must be busy elsewhere lately but I'm sure she wouldn't mind us starting.  

What do you think?  Feel free to "kick off" this round !  

Hope all is well with you.  Great to hear from you.

cheers, Karen


“Movies Featuring a Natural Disaster”

This may not be what you had in mind. But one of the most famous movies I have ever watched featured a tornado, that led to a fascinating adventure, featuring a horse of a different color, flying monkeys, and ruby slippers. Need you guess. THE WIZARD OF OZ. I think this qualifies as an aftermath even if it just existed in a dream after a tornado.

I'd say it definitely qualifies and what a great one to start the topic with!  Thanks Gem Data !!  Brilliant work.  :D

Hi, gang! I like Gem Data's idea, so here's my contribution:

2. San Francisco - Story of the aftermath of the San Francisco earthquake, and this reminds me of another movie (hint).

 3. The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1961) - British science fiction disaster movie directed by Val Guest, starring  Edward Judd, Janet Monroe and Leo Mckern.

 The super powers, the Soviet Union and the United States of America unbeknown to each other, detonate nuclear warheads simultaneously that cause catastrophic repercussions all over the Earth. 

 Volcanos, earthquakes, pestilence, chaos, temperature fluctuations, floods and fires ravage the planet.

  World leaders fear the Earth is doomed. 

The Day After Tomorrow.

After climatologist Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) is largely ignored by U.N. officials when presenting his environmental concerns, his research proves true when an enormous "superstorm" develops, setting off catastrophic natural disasters throughout the world. Trying to get to his son, Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal), who is trapped in New York with his friend Laura (Emmy Rossum) and others, Jack and his crew must travel by foot from Philadelphia, braving the elements, to get to Sam before it's too late

Great Entry, I've not heard of this movie be sure.  Shall be sure to look out for it.  Cheers.

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 […]
