Dead End (1937, William Wyler)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 8, 2020

If you tilt to just the right angle, for a while you can see Dead End as the tale of three people from a poor neighborhood and how life has worked out for them as they got closer to their thirties. Humphrey Bogart grew from a “not too bad” young punk to a public enemy number one, infamous for killi read more

The Heiress (1949, William Wyler)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 1, 2019

My favorite moment in The Heiress is when Olivia de Havilland has a slight tremor, watching someone walk away after she’s just told them off. It’s this fantastic glimpse into her character. The film has something of a double twist ending, so it’s going to be hard to talk around various spoilers read more

The Best Years of Our Lives (1946, William Wyler)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Mar 3, 2018

If it weren’t for the first half of the film, The Best Years of Our Lives would be a series of vingettes. The film runs almost three hours. Almost exactly the first half is set over two days. The remainder is set over a couple months. Director Wyler and screenwriter Robert E. Sherwood don’t really read more

Dupla Dinâmica: Bette Davis e William Wyler / Dynamic Duo: Bette Davis and William Wyler

Critica Retro Posted by Lê on Mar 26, 2017

Dupla Dinâmica: Bette Davis e William Wyler / Dynamic Duo: Bette Davis and William Wyler É difícil definir um cineasta como William Wyler. Seu filme mais famoso é a versão de 1959 de Ben-Hur, um épico bíblico masculinizado com uma boa dose de ação e drama. Entretanto, Wyler dirigiu 73 read more

The Little Foxes (1941, William Wyler)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Mar 25, 2017

The most impressive things about The Little Foxes are, in no particular order, Bette Davis’s performance (specifically her micro expressions), Patricia Collinge’s supporting performance, director Wyler’s composition, director Wyler’s staging of the narrative (adapted by Lillian Hellman from read more

Detective Story (1951, William Wyler)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 10, 2016

Detective Story, the film, is William Wyler’s “production” of Sidney Kingsley’s play of the same title. Philip Yordan and Robert Wyler adapted the play. Wyler directed and produced the film. It is a stage adaptation and proud of it. The phrasing above is directly adapted fro read more

Carrie (William Wyler, 1952)

Movie Classics Posted by Judy on Jul 6, 2014

For my money, Carrie is one of William Wyler’s greatest films – and one of Laurence Olivier’s finest performances. Yet it often seems to get overlooked. Maybe it would have more recognition as a classic adaptation if the title of Theodore Dreiser’s original novel, Sister read more

William Wyler: The Life and Films of Hollywood’s Most Celebrated Director

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Jan 27, 2014

The title of Gabriel Miller’s book is a bit of a misnomer; instead of presenting a straightforward biography on the director and his works, Miller focuses on emphasizing various tropes, themes, and motifs the director returned to again and again in all his work, turning this into an overview o read more
