""Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers used to do their dance scenes in one continuous shot. No CGI, no body-doubles. It's why I love the classics! Like you said, people had talent, they were triple threats." Isn't that the truth!…"

Cat People

"***spoiler alert*** Kent Smith's character was completely unstable in the film: accusing his daughter of lying, losing his temper with her, dismissing her fantasies as foolish. And you're right it was the same way they treated Irena in…"

Cat People

"As much as I love Curse of the Cat People,again its hard to like the leading Kent Smith,Jane Randolph characters as they still pass off Irena as some kind of nut and the daughter somewhat the same way just because she has some dreamy kid fantasies..."

"Agreed... I have watched this film twice in the last 2 months. Simone Simon is so beautiful in this film. Two things come to mind when I watch this film: the French term "mise-en-scène" and the German proverb "mit solchen…"

I really like mystery books just like you, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Allan Poe, Gaston Leroux, Agatha Christie, J.D. Karr and more. And I'm just waiting to take Marlene's book from the library, as soon as it will be back there. I think it's the same book you've quoted, it's like ABC, is it the book you meant?

We have much in common, not only Marlene, but also the books!

Thank you for the friend request! Since the advent of an ipod, to which I downloaded the entire studio career of Iggy and The Stooges, I have a revived love of the Stooges and the New York Dolls! I see you are also a fan. I remember, being that old that is, the day I walked into a record( yes, record) shop and without any prior knowledge, just on the reccomendation of the store employee , buying Ziggy Stardust on the day of it's release. Bowie has a somewhat checkered career with me, but my love for his earliest material is always strong and the Stooges are now in my top ten bands( like The Doors) and I enjoy even more than ever before!I also love Spirits Of the Dead since I saw it at the drive-in! We are indeed friends!

Yes I think we have been traveling the same enchanted path...have you ever read "Death and the Maidens"? It's a fascinating, intimate look on Fanny Wollstonecraft and the Shelly circle...

I love the Gothic Victorian literature as well! I'm currently in the process of writing a research paper about the famous authors of this period and how the majority of them were under the influence of opiates when they wrote their classic tales and poetry...

Let’s Go Crazy with Betty Blue (1986)

To view Betty Blue click here. We might have a few NSFW films lurking around here at FilmStruck (1974′s Sweet Movie springs to mind right off the bat), but for my money, nothing you could watch here at this moment combines the beautiful and the shocking in quite the same way as Betty Blue (1986).

This Land is Your Land: The Southerner (1945)

To view The Southerner click here. Jean Renoir considered The Southerner (1945) to be his “only work of a personal nature carried out in Hollywood.” Adapted from the National Book Award winning novel Hold Autumn in Your Hand, by George Sessions Perry, it follows a year in the life of a struggling Texas tenant farmer and his family. A lyrical portrait of do-it-yourself […]

The Man Ray Movie Challenge: Caesar and Cleopatra (1945)

To view Caesar and Cleopatra click here. In 1951, surrealist artist Man Ray, who was a fan of the cinema, quipped, “The worst films I have ever seen, the ones that put me to sleep, contain ten or fifteen marvelous minutes. The best films I have ever seen only contain ten or fifteen worthwhile ones.” […]
