Looking for Help

The Movie Database is an open-source movie database.


It's free and user driven. The great thing about the site is the excellent posters, fan art and artist images.


The site needs some work though...


All entries are made manually so many classic films are not represented. The actor images are mostly missing as well. If you're a film nut do me a favor and go to themoviedb.org and upload your actor images/movie…

Keeping up with Technology

I know most classic film buffs love their copies of old movies. Stacks of VHS tapes and DVDs of our favorites. But in the years to come our movie collections are going to be file based on one computer. The good news is we'll be able to find any movie at any time online and watch it. The bad news is we'll have to give up being physical collectors. All you movies will be on a computer server in your closet... or online. Also, one of the great things about DVDs - commentaries and extras - may… Continue

Suspense (1946)

Posted on October 26, 2009 at 10:27am 0 Comments

1946 was a big year for film noir. Two years earlier Double Indemnity was a smash. The-yet-to-be named film-noir style was the rage in Hollywood. All American movie studios scrambled to put out the next big Cain-like crime thriller. After the '46 release of the classic noirs The Postman Always Rings Twice and Gilda came Monogram's biggest budgeted film, Suspense.



Suspense – with a storyline that's almost exactly like Gilda released a month… Continue

Why Did They Laugh? In a Lonely Place...

So why do they laugh?



I went to see one of the best film noirs ever last Friday night - In a Lonely Place - and I left frustrated. They laughed at it. Not everyone... but enough to make me question whether I should even see old movies with others again.



Friday night at the Film Forum in New York City. I drove down from Connecticut stag. The better half couldn't make it but I try to keep her away from Gloria Grahame anyway.



The theater was packed. Susan… Continue

Laura (1944) Noir of the Week

Once you're dead, every inch of you will be searched. Not just your body, but all your belongings. The things you have hidden in your house or apartment; the things you prize, and the things you're ashamed of. Stuff you believe safe, that no one else in the world will ever see. Your most private possessions. Journal pages. Secrets. And every concrete detail to who you were as a human being before you died.



Whether… Continue

I joined the moviedatabase. I'll have to be a lurker for awhile until I understand
all the abbreviations , how to post, and access classic related material. It's
at first glance not as easy to use as this site, unless one is more computer-
literate--which I am not.

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 […]
