The Burglar (1957)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 19, 2022

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 19, 2022

While she’s arguably one of classic Hollywood’s most beautiful stars, Gene Tierney – in my opinion – doesn’t always get the acclaim she deserves for her acting ability. But she was outstanding in films like The Razor’s Edge (1947) and The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) and turned in memorable read more

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 18, 2022

One of my favorite underrated noirs is Shakedown (1950), starring Howard Duff, Brian Donlevy, and Lawrence Tierney. Until recently, I’d only seen it a few times, because the copy I owned on VHS was beyond lousy and barely watchable. But all that has changed! Shakedown, I discovered the other day, read more

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Nov 17, 2022

While not on par with the greatest of the screwball comedies, The Divorce of Lady X (1938) delivers a thoroughly engaging British take on the genre with notable performances from two iconic stars.

The Sound of Fury – Try and Get Me (1950)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 17, 2022

The Sound of Fury opens with a kind of portent. A demonstrative street preacher yells out at the pedestrians walking by to “Prepare to meet thy God and Repent of their sins.” He pretty much gets trampled with all his pamphlets ending up on the ground in a sea of humanity. It’s rea read more
