My thoughts on why 3D just doesn't work:

Tired of all the Top Films of 2009 lists, I put my own alternative together:

(Not) the Top 10 Films of 2009.

Posted on August 25, 2008 at 4:10pm 4 Comments


Following on from last week's frame which came from Bambi here is one that is perhaps a little harder.

What is the name of the film? Leave a comment and let me know... Good luck!

Hi Christian,

Great to have a message from an Errol Flynn admirer. yes i wrote a play called Errol Flynn- A Question mark for a face. It's a 4 hander. I was interested to see that you write as well.

Hi, Christian,

Thanks! Next time you're in the area, let me know--I'll give you a tour of the place.

Today's song of the day on my black GAOH Jukebox is quite remarkable. An Irish songwriter pulling together, in Celtic folk, themes from early, raw Willie Nelson to Adam Clayton, Jr. on Elvis' Harley.

The Atlantic Ocean is often called the Pond. It's size is truly a state of mind. It all comes together here in this family, my 2nd cousins, Chicago band's 2002 release, "Galway to Graceland", as covered by Donnybrook.

I'll stake my life that I went by the Jimmy Stewart museum just today.But that isn't hard when you are an Indiana native.Here is a question for Christian Hayes that few others can answer.What actor played eight different roles in a western movie.He rode eleven different horses and three mules.Only two of his characters lived to ride off into the sunset.The actor was from Indiana,Pennsylvania...but it wasn't jimmy stewart.Only the man with the Custer golden mane and the narrow Eastwood face will know that answer.Mainly Christian Christo!

That's a very kind offer. You never know, I may take you up on it! I would love to make my way back to the States, particularly for a festival. I do in particular plan to visit the Jimmy Stewart museum when I get a chance...

Well if you ever do decide to make it back to the States for either Cinefest or Capitolfest, my husband and I would love to show you around!

It's great to have a comrade in arms re: Venice -- other than Ernest Hemingway (who is still dead).

Hi Christian, thank you for the friend invite!

Great website, btw...

I noticed you listed among your favourites, Kid Auto Races at Venice, Cal... I was just discussing last week how after many years of neglect they have restored the canals to their former glory. If no one seems to fully appreciate the history of Chaplin's camera, at least the same now can't be said of the Venice Canals...

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 […]
