The Golden Age of Hollywood

UPDATE:

We've done many categories since this game started. I announce the current category in the game, but if you can't find the announcement, just ask any of the players.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
There's a game I play every chance I get with anyone who knows about movies. It's very simple: we pick a movie category and take turns naming titles of movies that fit in the category. For example, "films with a number in the title," or "films with hospital scenes" or "films with Joseph Cotten." I thought I'd see if anyone here wants to play.

Since there's no way of knowing how many people would want to join in, we can't take turns, so let's do it this way: only name one title at a time and wait for someone else to name one before you go again. The game ends when either we can't think of any more titles, or we reach 50 titles (because I know some people could go on and on way past the point where I would get bored with the category). So please mention the number we're on when you name a title.
It's no fair using IMDB or other sources, but if you run across a title by accident while the game is going on, it's fair to use it.
I'll start, and for the category I choose "films in which a fire occurs" (not a fire in the fireplace). The fire doesn't have to be depicted, just mentioned. This is a hard category for me, because it will mostly be composed of dramas, and I'm more into comedies, but here goes:

16. Supernatural - Pre-Code (1933) horror film starring Carole Lombard and Randolph Scott. Roma Courtenay (Lombard) is possessed by the spirit of executed murderer Ruth Rogen, who has one more man she wants to kill. I have always wanted to see this, and here it is:

HAVE Always wanted to see this film.  Did you enjoy it, Rosie?  Thanks for the link.  I must try to catch it.

I haven't watched it yet, Karen. But I will one of these days soon. 

Watched young Carole in Man of the World a few days ago - also starred William Powell. They married shortly after making this film around 1931. He late 40s, she 21.

17. 36 Hours (1965)- WW2 spy thriller starring James Garner, Eva Marie Saint, Rod Taylor.

  The year is 1950, the War is over and the Allies are the victors.

    .U.S Intelligence Officer Major Jefferson Pike (James Garner) is an amnesia patient in a U.S military hospital based in Germany awakes not knowing who he really is, where he is, how he got there and who the nurse is caring for him who professes to be his wife.

  During  long consultations with the American doctor about his episodes of amnesia in the past six years, increasingly Pike becomes apprehensive and sceptical realising things are not what they seem.

  I highly recommend this unconventional psychological war film. Watch it if you can!

Plot sounds interesting and good cast.

Have we stalled in this game?  I can't think of any more?

Do we want to try another quick game prior to the July 20 finish-line?

Think I had one.  Movies featuring a circus, for example.

But of course Rosie, if you have something else in mind....let us know.  or if you have more of this game? I can wrack my brain a bit more.

I elect we go for the circus theme, Karen. The previous game has definitely ground to a halt. Did you get my message, Karen?

Yes I did.  Thanks John Frederick.  I replied via your email (as that was what I was using at the time)

Hopefully we hear from Rosie soon, regarding The Game.  Don't want to start a new game without her.  

(She messaged me on Facebook recently so hopefully she's received a message I sent her there re GAOH)

OK Karen, I'll check my e mails.

Hi, sorry for my tardiness. Sure, let's go for another category. The circus theme sounds good. We did it before but LONG ago.

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 […]
