Whistle Down The Wind (1961)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 28, 2022

Whistle Down The Wind feels like it employs the “kitchen sink” aesthetic in step with British film of the day, bleak and tough around the corners with working-class folks coping with all kinds of toilsome drama. However, if the mantle of that zeitgeist was normally carried by the likes read more

Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 25, 2022

Although it might seem like I’ve sworn off all sequels, I realize there are a select few that are able to garner my affections. A movie like Top Gun: Maverick cares about its lineage, grappling with the past, and building an even more exhilarating future. In other words, it doesn’t feel read more

Cesar et Rosalie (1972)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 23, 2022

It occurs to me that the title Cesar et Rosalie is a rather peculiar choice for this movie. However, it’s also very pointed. If Jules et Jim was about two friends caught in a ceaselessly complicated love affair with one woman (Jeanne Moreau), then here is a story shifting the focus just sligh read more

Les Choses de la Vie (1970)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 21, 2022

I’m not sure if director Claude Sautet was just never esteemed enough by the cineastes of his day to receive his due, but the string of pictures he made with the likes of Michel Piccoli and Romy Schneider feel worthy of further, more stringent consideration. What becomes evident is this kind read more

The Impossibly Difficult Name that Movie Game

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jun 21, 2022

 This is a fun one. When I first saw this flash on the screen it reminded me of Jessica Fletcher's debut novel, "The Corpse Danced at Midnight" in Murder, She Wrote. Let's see how long it will take you to remember which film this novel came from. As always, if you are not familiar with the rule read more

The Paleface (1948)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 18, 2022

As a kid, I was fond of Frank Tashlin’s Son of Paleface for a myriad of reasons. Thanks to that esteemed institution known as the local library I was well-versed in the Hope & Crosby Road Pictures by an early age and Roy Rogers was probably second-only to Gene Autry as king of the Singing read more
