M.T. Fisher replied to Tim's discussion What Does a Film Have to Have to Be Classified as a "Western?"
"This is a question to which there really isn't a wrong answer, and I love the answers given thus far.  When the 1992 version of The Last of the Mohicans came out, Madeline Stowe stated it was a Western, due to the fact that that…"
Rosie Sayer replied to Tim's discussion What Does a Film Have to Have to Be Classified as a "Western?"
"My personal opinion is that the classic western has evolved into modern westerns. The classic westerns were usually set in the western U.S. in the 1800s, and they had certain cliché elements which were not all required, but some combination…"
E.Roberson replied to Tim's discussion What Does a Film Have to Have to Be Classified as a "Western?"
"To be classified as a "Western film," (especially an Old Wild Western film, as best can be done) there must be straight, Historical Factors involved. Then, it becomes more realistic, because the stories would be real as it really happened…"

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Firstly, I'm CHRISTOPHER'S cousin, and I owe most of what I love about movies to him. I earned a degree in History in 1982, so naturally I've spent the last 24 years working in a factory that makes elevator components. I've been married since 1993 and have two children, the older of whom I already have well on the way to being a movie aficionado like myself. If it's about movies and film, it interests me!

Happy 100th Birthday, Rebecca "Carla" Laemmle!

Posted on October 20, 2009 at 7:00pm 9 Comments

She's the last surviving cast member from the original PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925,) and probably the last from the original DRACULA (1931,) in which, in spite of her miniscule role, she gained genre immortality by uttering the first line of dialogue in a sound horror film ("Among the rugged peaks that frown down upon the Borgo Pass are found crumbling castles of a bygone age...") Ms. Laemmle was born in 1909… Continue

Happy Triple Birthday, to the "Boys!"

Posted on May 27, 2009 at 10:14pm 3 Comments

Today is Christopher Lee's birthday...he's an astonishing 87, and shows no sign at all of slowing down! It's also Vincent Price's birthday...he would have been 98. And yesterday was Peter Cushing's birthday...he would have been 96. Where would we fans have been without these guys? It would seem like a celebratory showing of SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN is in order, or… Continue

Its probably a good Idea to transfer new files and things you want to keep, to Disc soon after you download them..So if all hell breaks loose and you have to do a complete recovery or replace the harddrive,which are simple things,you will have your "keepsakes" safely tucked away to load back on again..I personally don't really have anything on my computer (save for some pictures,that are on disc)that I care about loosing,that I can't easily find again to download..

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 […]
