"I love this movie! It was always one of those "feel good" fluff films I'd watch just whenever. The musical number on the plane which features Louis Armstrong, Dorothy Lamour, etc., is lots of fun, but the "comedy" during…"

"2. Anchors Aweigh (1945) This extremely fun sailors-on-leave movie starring Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra also features famous conductor and pianist Jose Iturbi playing himself. His character shows up in the movie a few times. "

Erin, I checked the Screwball Comedy group to look up your old handle, but your account was definitely deleted, because all your comments are gone. A sad loss for all of us!

Erin,

Sorry that your former account doesn't exist. Could you have possibly used a different email address and user name? I searched the database and your email does not exist except under your current account. If you used a handle it might still exist. I just don't know where to look. The only accounts we have deleted were ones that were inactive for five years or more.

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.” […]

Shoot First, Die Later (1974)

To view Shoot First, Die Later click here. Here’s how I’d pitch Fernando Di Leo’s Shoot First, Die Later (1974) to any of my friends: If you’d like to see a gritty Italian crime movie that evokes The French Connection (1971) and surely influenced Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino, look no further than this grim […]
