  1. THE COSSACKS (1928) TCM Premiere March 9th!

    I sure hope that TCM does run THE COSSACKS in March. That would be so cool! Who knows what else may be in the works?
  2. Receive any Classic films for Christmas?

    Santa was good to me. I got the Criterion Blu-ray edition of SAFETY LAST and the Cohen media Blu-ray of THE THIEF OF BAGDAD.

    Sorry about that! I totally forgot about CAPTAIN SALVATION. My bad!

    The only film of hers that I've seen is THE VIKING (1928). I'm sure others probably survive, but are a bit harder to find.
  5. The Blacksmith (1922)

    Very interesting news, thanks for posting it!

  8. THE DEATH KISS (1933)!! On TCM this morning!

    Sans I agree that this is a fun movie. TCM had not run this one in many years. I really do enjoy this film. I have enjoyed many poverty row quickie productions that I've seen in the past. What really amazed me the first time I saw this film on TCM years ago was the hand stenciling at the end. That was a throwback to the silent era, where it was used frequently. It adds a certain charm to it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a condition snob, meaning that if the film isn't pristine, I wouldn't watch it Rather I see these not unlike one would look a a piece of ancient Greek or Egyptian art that has survived the centuries. Some have pieces missing, or have faded, but it does not ruin their beauty or their significance as a cultural artifacts.
  9. THE DEATH KISS (1933)!! On TCM this morning!

    I like the film. It's too bad that this is probably the best existing print of this film, but I love the hand stenciled color bits at the end. It is an excellent example of poverty row film making. Yes, some of the acting is not top notch, and the plot is a bit hokey, but still it does not cease to entertain me. What a great budget saving device, murder on a film studio back lot.

    In keeping with the Halloween spirit (no pun intended), Danny Elfman's "This Is Halloween" seems to be in order:

  12. The Unholy Three (1925)

    It works very effectively. I don't know if you have seen Chaney's talkie remake, but what works is the fact that he is using his voice talents (even though we cannot hear them) as well as costume and makeup. Even though we don't hear him speak, he conveys the idea that he is speaking as an old woman while he is masquerading as an old woman. So even though he plays a ventriloquist, it is not really awkward that we can't hear him.
  13. Is it me? (re: The Mysterious Lady and Vivek Maddala)

    There were only a few MGM films in 1928 that were released with a "vitaphone" disc accompaniment. I don't believe that this film was released with that way. If it was released with a musical score, then it is possible that none or only a few discs survive. Which would explain the new score. I am not a fan of this score at all. I really feel that it does not fit the overall feel of the film. If I remember correctly, Maddala also scored THE PATSY (1928) for TCM a few years back, and it's not all that great either.
  14. The Goddess, 1934, China

    It's been a long time since TCM has run this film. I am glad they did. It is a good film.

    You're right, Sans, it is a cute little video. While this isn't a fox (speaking or not), it is a fun tune by the Everly Brothers. "Bird Dog" :
