Howdy Mr. Walker! How are things down yonder in Kentucky? Simply dropping by to say hello considering it's been a while. Semper Fi!

By the way, TWELVE O' CLOCK HIGH is probably my favorite movie about the United States Army Air Corps (as it was known then). Great acting on behalf of Gregory Peck and Dean Jagger (who won an oscar for his role, though Peck deserved one too). It is a masterpiece on the pressure men face during a bombing campaign such as those notorious daylight raids over Germany. even though it focuses more on the airmen and how they are affected, the movie does have a great prolonged battle sequence the blends real war footage with hollywood footage very well. And the score by Alfred Newman, though small, is effective and packs a punch. the other Aerial combat films i want to see are AIR FORCE and THIRTY SECONDS OVER TOKYO.

Welcome to this great site, Mr. Walker. a Hearty "Semper Fidelis" to you and your service to our country during the 1950s, an era i love very much. I am an old soul and know that the past should not be seen through "rose tinted" glasses but i still love just about anything from the 1930s, 40s and 50s, especially the great movies of those times and the music and fashions of the lot. It is a time that i would very much have like to have lived in, even if i am just 17.

 Good to have a fellow Southerner along as well, from the ol' Bluegrass state. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. So geographically and BY HEART i am a southerner, even with my hispanic blood and living in hispanic communities. But if anything i would be more at home at a ranch in Texas than i would anywhere else. :-)

Hello Ken! Welcome to The Golden Age of Hollywood. Sorry about the delay in approving your membership and for the not greeting you sooner. I work for a big box store and we just finished our annual inventory and things have been gruesome for a couple of weeks. I hope to have some more free time after this coming week is over. I hope you enjoy the site.

Kevin

I like the avatar you have now, Ken. Ralph Byrd WAS Dick Tracy. No one else could play the part like he did.

Glad to have you here, Ken. I see you have 2 friends already. More to come. I promise.

On Dave Kehr and “Movies That Mattered”

When I was in the film program at Northwestern University in Chicago, my peers and I were required to read the works of Walter Benjamin, John Berger, Michel Foucault and even Freud, Jung and Marx. The idea was to apply their theories to the cinema to better understand how film worked, or how it related […]

Making the Leap: Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Talkies

To view The Private Life of Don Juan click here. Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. made his last movie in 1934. The Private Life of Don Juan was, quite accidentally, a fitting farewell to one of the first megastars of the movie industry. It wasn’t clear while filming it that it would be Fairbanks’ last movie but […]

The Greatest Early Douglas Sirk: Lured (1947)

His work throughout the 1950s, and specifically these four films, are not […]
