A John Stahl/Douglas Sirk comparative series of films would be nice. Sirk directed three films in the 1950s that John Stahl had directed in the 1930s: Imitation of Life; Magnificent Obsession; and When Tomorrow Comes (Sirk's Interlude).

I'd also be interested in seeing the pre-code version of Back Street. I wonder if it's closer to the book than the other two. I found an old paperback copy a few years ago and it's absolutely devastating: she lives out her final years in abject poverty and dies just before an offer of financial help comes from the children. A far cry from Susan Hayward's glam-bot, though I love that one on its own terms. 

Yes, Dougie, that's how the precode version ends.
