HONEYMOON WITH A STRANGER

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Feb 4, 2023

 Did you know there was a 1969 TV movie for ABC that starred Janet Leigh? And Barbara Steele?? I didn't have any knowledge of this either, until recently. HONEYMOON WITH A STRANGER is a decent suspense/mystery tale with some effective twists. Janet Leigh plays Sandra, an American woman who read more

All Quiet on the Western Front (2022)

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Feb 4, 2023

Edward Berger’s All Quiet on the Western Front starts with a moment of juxtaposition. We are shown the beautiful winter forest in France, and then a family of foxes sleeping, nestled in their foxhole. A foxhole as nature intended. Then we are shown a gruesome, overhead shot of a nearby battlefield. read more

Vagabond (1985)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Feb 3, 2023

Vagabond (or Sans toit ni loi, in French) plays as the sum of a fairly dismal life but not an unworthy one. For those familiar with Agnes Varda’s filmography, whether the penchant for seascapes or her concerted empathy for the discarded, it’s easy to see how this picture fits in with the read more

Watching 1939: Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Feb 2, 2023

In 2011, I announced I was trying to see every film released in 1939. This new series chronicles films released in 1939 as I watch them. As we start out this blog feature, this section may become more concrete as I search for a common thread that runs throughout each film of the year. Right now, th read more

Classic Films in Focus: DEAD OF NIGHT (1945)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Feb 2, 2023

Long before The Twilight Zone came the 1945 British anthology film, Dead of Night, which weaves together a collection of eerie tales within a framework that gathers a small group of people in an English country house. While it's not exactly a horror movie, it does offer plenty of weird and even dist read more

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Feb 2, 2023

February is a short month, but there’s no shortage of first-rate pre-Codes and noirs on TCM for you to discover, including the two I’ve selected as my recommendations . . .

Le Bonheur (1965)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Feb 1, 2023

The aesthetic of Agnes Varda’s Le Bonheur is strikingly deliberate. Her title cards are filled with sunflowers. All her characters — members of a lovely little family — wear a rainbow of colors. There’s a verdant gaiety to the forest landscape around them. The score comprise read more

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jan 31, 2023

La Pointe Courte (1955)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 30, 2023

Agnes Varda became a modern-day cinema celebrity in the 21st century thanks to her immediately recognizable profile and modern incarnations of her work like Vague Visages. Because it’s true she never stopped creating, never ceased exploring this terrestrial sphere. Watching something like La read more

Avatar: The Way of Water

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Jan 30, 2023

Personally, I enjoy James Cameron’s Avatar films more than I like to admit. I geek out over the technical achievements, the stunning visuals, the unique combination of motion capture acting and CGI. Most of all, the Avatar movies are incredibly immersive. They’re truly an escape that I don’t mind read more

Musical Monday: Till the Clouds Roll By (1946)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jan 30, 2023

It’s no secret that the Hollywood Comet loves musicals. In 2010, I revealed I had seen 400 movie musicals over the course of eight years. Now that number is over 600. To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals. This week’s musical: Till the Clouds Roll By read more

Drama Among the Country Club Set in Banning

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jan 30, 2023

Wagner as Mike Banning.Banning (1967) often gets categorized as a golf movie--heck, it was even shown on the Golf Channel at one time. It does involve golfing, particularly during the climax, but the reality is that Banning is the equivalent of a big screen soap opera--and I mean that as a read more

ReMIND Classic TV Magazine

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jan 30, 2023

Last week I discovered the neatest magazine and in the most unlikely location - Dollar Tree. The magazine is ReMIND and it is filled with articles and fun stuff related to classic television shows and pop culture of the 1950s-1990s, plus loads of trivia games. Little did I know that this m read more

Aftersun: Too Intimate for the Oscars, Rant Part II

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 29, 2023

Aftersun deserved best picture & directing Oscars this year, but it had no shot. The Academy doesn’t like to award intimate little stories about relationships. They like loud message films, and loud action films, and stories about men being men. And when they (rarely) pivot their patterns read more

It’s Not Horror, It’s Noir: El Vampiro Negro (1953)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Jan 28, 2023

I didn’t know what to expect from El Vampiro Negro. Because it was a Flicker Alley release, and preserved by the UCLA Film and Television Archive, I figured it would surely be worth my time, but as a firm disliker of horror films (and vampires in particular), I’ll admit that the title threw me off read more

Rentaghost ( 1976-1984 )

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jan 28, 2023

"If your mansion house needs haunting just call Rentaghost..." Growing up in England in the 1970s, you would no doubt remember Rentaghost, a children's show that had a delightful blend of punny humor and downright silliness, not to mention an unforgettable theme song! A ghost never dies....and read more
