Royal Wedding (1951)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Feb 5, 2016

The Wedding of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip was a once in a lifetime experience. They’re still together to this day and yet when they got married she was not even queen yet. It’s hard to believe. It’s only fitting that a momentous occasion  like that would get a film, and Sta read more

Hollywood Capers: Stolen Academy Awards

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Feb 5, 2016

In the film industry, the Academy Award is the symbol of the most outstanding and top-notch artists in the film industry, from cinematographers to sound to acting. So it’s no surprise these gold Cedric Gibbons-designed statues are auctioned for hundreds of thousands of dollars. But some prefe read more

Fridays With…Yvonne De Carlo: Salome, Where She Danced (1945)

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Feb 5, 2016

Oof, Fridays With Yvonne De Carlo is off to a rocky start. Though never an A-list actress, De Carlo is best remembered to legions of television fans as Lily Munster in the 1960s series The Munsters which is the extent of my De Carlo knowledge. Her filmic output was scattered, with De Carlo mostly re read more

Classic Films in Focus: MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (1947)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Feb 4, 2016

Although it has been remade several times, the original 1947 release of Miracle on 34th Street is still the best and most charming incarnation of this heart-warming tale of holiday faith. Its attractions include an Oscar-winning Santa Claus performance courtesy of Edmund Gwenn and a memorable early read more

o/t: Coming in Fall

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Feb 4, 2016

The subtitle’s still being played with — and, who knows, the cover itself may be changed completely once the distributors have had their say — but here’s the current plan. Looks eye-catching – good luck with it Sir! Thanks! Looks like another winner! Fill in your detai read more

The Big Short

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 4, 2016

Let me first say that I know next to nothing about big banking terms or the housing market and unless that knowledge impacts a major life decision, I don’t care to learn much about it.  The filmmakers behind The Big Short realize that many people feel as I do, and they work with it.  They take what read more

Critica Retro Posted by Lê on Feb 4, 2016

Nanook, o Esquimó / Nanook of the North (1922) Metonímia é uma figura de linguagem que substitui o todo pela parte. Assim, um só indivíduo pode se tornar parâmetro para uma comunidade ou um povo inteiro. Foi assim que Nanook se transformou no esquimó-modelo: o astro do documentário de read more

Throwback Thursday: Rechained By Dubbing – Django (1966)

Durnmoose Movie Musings Posted by Michael on Feb 4, 2016

Between this blog and my previous one, Professor Damian’s Public Domain Treasure Chest, I’ve been writing about movies for quite a while now. Because of that, there are a lot of posts that have simply gotten lost to the mists of time. So, I figured I’d use the idea of “Throwb read more

Ann Vickers (1933) with Irene Dunne

Classic Film Freak Posted by Orson De Welles on Feb 4, 2016

Share This! Ann Vickers is an odd sort of film.  Knowing nothing of it when watched, seeing that it’s based on a Sinclair Lewis novel of the same name was the first clue.  Lewis never wrote lightly and is usually remembered as one of literature’s more noted social commentators.  With both the read more

Quentin Durward: The Dying Days of Chivalry

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Feb 4, 2016

Robert Taylor in the title role. After Ivanhoe (1952) and Knights of the Round Table (1953), MGM was hoping the casting of Robert Taylor in a third medieval picture would once again generate big profits. Unfortunately, Quentin Durward (1955), which reteamed Taylor and director Richard Thorpe, read more

West Side Story (1961) – Updated

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Feb 4, 2016

Look at West Side Story through a simple lens and you might see a Shakespearian classic given a 1950s face lift and set to music. It might seem antiquated, perhaps not as politically correct as we have come to expect, and maybe a bit regressive. However, this musical based off of the bard’s fa read more

Films of 1947

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Feb 4, 2016

Every year of the golden age of Hollywood produced worthy films, but certain years turned out bumper crops of great classic movies. 1939 immediately comes to mind, of course, but other years also turned out scores of timeless pictures that still enthrall audiences today. Whenever I'm working on a co read more
