What is the greatest Civil War film of all time?

This month marks the 150th anniversary of the beginning of our nation's Civil War. I thought I would use the occasion to ask everyone what they believe is the greatest Civil War film. It's not as simple as one would think. For example, what IS the definition of a Civil War film? Does it have to include…

My Classic Movie Actress Final Match is set....Vivien Leigh vs Irene Dunne

The Classic Movie Actress Final is set...Vivien Leigh vs Irene Dunne. After the two semi-final matches ended today with Leigh trouncing Natalie Wood 38-24 and Dunne edging out Grace Kelly 39-33, the finale is now set. Due to Blogger's problems on Friday, one day of voting was lost, so the competition had to be re-started. The results were the same as Leigh and Dunne won their respective matches.

The Collector (1965)

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 […]
