Ladies and Gentlemen,I have been reading previous rounds of "A Game I Play," and it sounds like fun, so I would like to start a round. As I understand it, one person names a film genre or category,…Continue

"Tiffany, I love your idea for a category. You don't need to start a new discussion thread to play this game. You are more than welcome to play with us at the original "A Game I Play.""

"A Game I Play"

Ladies and Gentlemen,I have been reading previous rounds of "A Game I Play," and it sounds like fun, so I would like to start a round. As I understand it, one person names a film genre or category, such as films containing a certain type of event, a certain actor, etc. People take turns naming films in this category until they have reach fifty. All participants must use their own memories and knowledge; it is cheating to check some source for information.My topic is films which are only…See More

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I have watched old movies all my life. I have never watched any movies except those from the Golden Era of Hollywood. My love for old movies eventually led me to discover the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 and the amazing impact it had on Hollywood and America. As I learned more about it, I began to love it more and more. In October of 2016, my sister and I started the Pure Entertainment Preservation Society, an organization specifically dedicated to bringing back the Code and celebrating old, beautiful entertainment. I love the 1930s very much. They are my favorite time in Hollywood history. I celebrate the whole true Code era, which is from 1934 to 1954, when Joseph I. Breen was the head of the Production Code Administration. He is my favorite film contributor because he was a moral, talented man who kept films clean and glorious for everyone. I have been deeply influenced by the Code era and old entertainment. I never leave the house without an vintage-style dress or skirt and hat. I live my life like it is a Code film.

One for all, and all for one!

To view The Three Musketeers click here. To view The Four Musketeers click here. Director Richard Lester was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but he directed some of the best British films of the 1960s. Inspired by Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati, he developed an acute funny bone and an appreciation of the absurd that allowed […]

Black Jesus (1968) Isn’t What You Think It Is

To view Black Jesus click here. I’d honestly be shocked if more than a handful of people around here have heard of Black Jesus (1968) before today. Barely released in American theaters by one-shot outfit Plaza Pictures and never given a legitimate home video release (ignore the bootleg DVDs), this is a rough, tough and […]

Summer Daze: Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953)

To view Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday click here. The first screen appearance of Jacques Tati’s Hulot character is inside of a car: a clattering, jittering wreck making its way to a seaside hotel in Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953). Tati cuts from the sound of a train horn to the pitter-putter of Hulot’s gasping car engine as it turns the corner […]
