Re: JAPANESE MOVIES - ANY OTHER FANS ?

Late Spring is another Ozu film which I liked very much. The last part of the film, from father and daughter making a last trip together to Kyoto to the final scene of the father peeling an apple, is beautiful, almost beyond praise. I'm certain it was from others on this board some years back that ...

Re: Welcome To Scott O'Brien!

Hi Scott - welcome back to the Oasis! As Wendy has just asked about Ruth's "amours", I'd like to know a bit more about her marriage to Ralph Forbes. I know he takes some knocks from film fans as somewhat dull (as does George Brent), but I really like him, and think he is gorgeous! Firstly,...

Re: Gilbert Roland - A Latin Performer Unbounded

Of the recent movies I've seen with GR, the best of the lot may be Last Train to Madrid (1937) in which our hero plays an imprisoned Spanish soldier who is freed from prison by his friend and former comrade in arms, Anthony Quinn. This is one of the earlier movies I've seen Roland in recently, and,...

Ditto - none of my local libraries have it (?!#), so I used the LINK library service - a copy is coming from Sacramento!

Re: Pre-Code: Reunion In Vienna

HRS and Moira - I did see this once, and it MUST have been on TCM as I'm pretty sure it was within the last 5-7 years and I stopped watching AMC ages ago. Unfortunately, I did not record as I was watching it - I always assume TCM will repeat a title at some point in time, but I have never seen this ...

Re: WHAT SILENTS & PRE-CODES HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Yesterday thanks to Carrie I saw a rare 1930 Paramount film starring Nancy Carroll and Richard Arlen titled " Dangerous Paradise ", directed by Bill Wellman and based upon a story by Joseph Conrad. Oooohh....I'm envious! I'd love to see everything Nancy Carroll is in. Your plot descriptio...

Re: George Raft

I've wanted to watch this for so long. Thank you :D I'd never heard of this film, and wasn't even searching for it - it just sort of popped up some how in a search I did for Al Bowlly tunes! Anyhoo, I watched it right away and thought it was really enjoyable and oddball at the same time. What a sha...

Re: George Raft

Well, it's an interesting film, it feels like the studio doesn't quite know what to do with George Raft, perhaps capitilising on his resemblance to Valentino they cast him as a matador but unlike Valentino they don't really give him chance to posture or build him up into a fearsome matador. There's...
