Monthy Column: Silents are Golden

Silents are Golden: Just What the Heck Was German Expressionism? Many of you have likely seen The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, or at least have seen a few famous stills.

Monthy Column: Vitaphone View

Vitaphone View: Early Talkies in Widescreen? Yup! In previous blogs, I’ve discussed just how massive and fast the transition to sound films was. It was also very expensive.

Monthy Column: Film Noir Review

“Out of every seven guys who go to the chair, six go yelling, “I’m innocent!’” Desperate (1947) is a prime example of what I’d like to call the “partial noir.” These are films that, despite their accomplished casts and moody visuals, feel the need to soften up during t......

Monthy Column: Musical Interlude

 “I hate musicals.” We’ve all met someone who tries to rain on a musical lover’s parade with this phrase. Maybe they once watched The Sound of Music (1965) and thought it was way too long or perhaps had a hard time with gang members pirouetting down New York City streets in West Side Story (1961).
