Re: Gaslight (1940) vs. Gaslight (1944)

I have both of these in my collection. Usually I prefer the original, but not in this case. For me the 1944 version is far superior, probably because I believe that the stars in this are superior. Obviously this is not just my opinion, with the 1944 version being nominated for 7 Oscars, and winning ...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Tarzan Today I watched three Tarzan movies. Tarzan Of The Apes (1918 ) I had always thought that Elmo Lincoln was the first Tarzan, but I found that before he grew up Gordon Griffiths was a young Tarzan. Jane (Enid Markey) was demurely dressed with her legs covered to the ankles. The dress graduall...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

You are correct Movieman. It makes me wonder if there are other "subtle asides" in this movie.

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

His Girl Friday (1940) Rosalind Russell has just divorced Cary Grant and is about to marry Ralph Bellamy. Cary Grant does all sorts of things to stop her remarriage. This was just an ordinary show, but toward the end there was an interesting passage. The Mayor and the Sherrif, (both dishonest), are...

Re: The Maltese Falcons

One must feel sorry for the man who paid four million plus dollars. It is unlikely that he will ever get his money back. I have both the 1931 and 1941 versions and I do not think much of either of them. The 1931 version I have must be the 1950`s TV release as it is called Dangerous Female. Obviously...

Re: Loretta Young

I usually prefer original movies to their remakes, but in this instance my preference is for the remake, That Wonderful Urge (1948). Tyrone Power plays the same role, but this time the reporters notice that she (Gene Tierney) is wearing a wedding ring. With the records office conveniently destroyed ...

Evelyn Daw

Evelyn Daw 16-11-1912 to 29-11-1970 There seems to be nothing much known about Evelyn Daw. She appeared in only two movies, and in both she was the female lead. They were Something To Sing About (1937), which James Cagney listed as his second favourite movie, and Panamint`s Bad Man (1938). I have b...

Re: WHAT FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN LATELY?

Annie Oakley (1935) A well made biopic and a good show to watch. Barbara Stanwyck did a great job as Annie, as did Preston Foster as Toby Walker. Like as all biopics the truth is not allowed to spoil the story. For instance, at the time of the shooting contest Annie had not yet adopted the name Oak...

Star Wars : The Force Awakens (2015) Among my Christmas gifts this year was a double pass to the movies. I went to watch this movie. I recall that when I saw the first Star Wars movie that I enjoyed it. After that they got progressively worse. This new movie is so bad that I could only call it garb...

Re: CANDIDS II

Re: CANDIDS II Thanks Joe, that's one of my favorite Christmas comedies. I'll have to queue it up for this week. I think Stanwyck and Morgan are great together. :) It is interesting that people see things through different eyes. This may well have been a comedy, but the facial expressions on Barbara...
