"FilmFanatic, your bro is wising up. Dictator is one of my favorite CC films. He is fascinating to watch. When you know just how involved he was in film making you understand the movies even more than usual. Hopefully Anthony will school his fellow…"

"I loved "Georgy Girl" - I can remember singing the song with school friends on the bus going home from school. The actor with Moira Shearer - is that Leonide Massine??"

"Hi. Well for myself, I have no issue with your link. I'm not sure  how the administrators feel so you may want to inquire with them. I'd love to check it out. "Exotic" or no Euro films are fun to watch."

"I do watch a few British films, I hadn't thought of them as "foreign" but I suppose they are - even Australian movies would be foreign to a New Yorker haha."

roadrunner,

 

Good call over at Rosie's game picking To Kill a Mockingbird. It's a film I really love. I'm sure I speak for all our "usual suspects" that we'd love the see you back at the game.

 

Welcome

Man’s Castle 1933

Embarrassed to say but I just watched Frank Borzage’s Man’s Castle for the first time this week. Wow, what a movie! Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young are both excellent but the way the movie plows headlong into the plight of desperate people during the despression is remarkable. There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]
