My wish list

I always have an ongoing wish list of films that are either not available on VHS or DVD, or out of print and overpriced, or that I just haven't gotten around to buying. Since I no longer have a VCR, I'm now only interested in DVDs. My current wish list includes (but is not limited to):

* = fervently desired

(UPDATED FEBRUARY 18, 2015)



1.√ *Good Sam (got it! thanks, Walt!)

2. √*No Time for Comedy (Stewart & R. Russell) (thanks, Al!)

3. *Hired Wife

My collection in alphabetical order

Well, folks, I've finally decided to post this list, knowing it will soon be out of date. But I will try to keep it updated. So without further ado, here is my Classic Film Collection in alphabetical order. DVD2 means Region 2 DVD; my other DVDs are Region 1.

If you see a copyright symbol, it means that the VHS has some sort of strange copy protection that doesn't allow me to transfer it to my DVD recorder. Many of my VHS tapes/DVD+Rs were recorded off the TV in Europe, so they're PAL…

VHS & DVDs I'm weeding out

I just took a look at my pile of duplicate videos and DVDs. April 30 is Queen's Day here, when everyone sells their old junk. In anticipation of that event, I thought I'd first offer my surplus titles here. I'm interesting in trading if possible. I'm very willing to trade for a movie you've recorded off the TV as long as I don't already have the title, but what I'm offering here is all commercial videos and DVDs. If you see a copyright symbol by a title, it means that the tape has some sort of… Continue

The Magnificent Ambersons (1942)

Screening time : Thursday 20th March 2008, 8.35 - 10.00 p.m. GMT





Orson Welles' second feature has some great cinematic touches (overlapping dialogue etc) though its more understated than Citizen Kane. The story is interesting enough if rather sombre : it is about the decline of an upper middle class family counterpointed neatly with the development of the automobile. Fine cast many familar from Kane and the Mercury Theatre.… Continue

Shanghai Express (1932)

Tuesday 18th March : 7.50 - 9.10 p.m. UK Time





The delectable,quivering Marlene Dietrich bathed with shadow after an encounter with Clive Brook in Shanghai Express (1932) from about the middle of her cycle of movies directed by Josef Von Sternberg. Increasingly these movies seem to be more and more about style and atmosphere, showcasing the leading lady rather than plot. Its quite an interesting plot here though not really as… Continue

TCM Schedule


I have added the TCM schedule to the RSS feed on the main page (look on the left and scroll down). This is done as a convenience to our members to quickly glance what is on the schedule for the day. If there is a different RSS feed that you feel is more appropriate and informative to our member base let me know but for right now I think this is practical.

The Road Movies



I have always loved both Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. I think they are both extraordinary individual talents but when they were brought together there was magic. They were able to work off each others strengths. I'm not sure how many movies they appeared in together but the ones most familiar are the "ROAD" series. You know the ones I mean. The ones where Bob and Bing are on the road to somewhere enjoying bachelorhood but there is always the girl… Continue

The player will allow you to launch it into a separate player so you can move around the web or the network with turning it off by leaving my page. Just click the launch link below the player.



If you want to add your own player… Continue

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 […]
