  1. Sounds like the gunshot from the finale of Spellbound. The explosive view as Leo G.Carroll (and by extension -- the audience) commits suicide.
  2. Sorry backlotangel, it's a little late to reply to this (since you posted last December), but I have a way to cheat with Bunuel's Belle de Jour and it looks as if no one else brought it up. If you watch a subtitled version (and I see you're from France/US, so maybe you haven't turned on the subtitles) you can tell "what was real and what wasn't". You see, the dialogue in the fantasy scenes feature subtitles in italics; the "real" scenes do not. Hope this helps!
  3. I love Vivien Leigh in this role. I wouldn't change it (though I would've been interested in Paulette Goddard's interpretation). However, I don't think she "had all the looks that made up Scarlett O'Hara". At least not Margaret Mitchell's Scarlett. Now when we think of Ms. O'Hara, we picture Vivien Leigh. Scarlett became the role that Leigh created (rather than the other way around). But I think she was far more beautiful than the one that Margaret Mitchell envisioned. Remember, the first line of the book was: "Scarlett O'Hara was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when struc
  4. So You Want to Quit Smoking is showing tomorrow (April 14) morning and again on April 27! Warm up that VCR and throw out your ashtray. Enjoy!
  5. I know that the Banks family lived there on Cherry Tree Lane... I have to think harder on the others... I could guess that Stiftgasse is either in The Third Man or Young Frankenstein (and it's not often that one would choose between those two for an answer!)...
  6. It was indeed called The King of Kings, Cecil B. DeMille's 1927 silent starring H. B. Warner as Jesus and Joseph Schildkraut as Judas. As I recall it was mainly in b/w with some 2-strip technicolor also used for effect.
  7. May I help, oobleck? Southern landowner = Thomas Mitchell "Friend" of Eddie Coyle = Mitchell Ryan Fake Scottish butler = Ryan ______ Well, there's a couple more...
  8. I had a little technical problem while posting in the "Information, Please!" forum. I'd get an error message that the reply would not post, so I'd try again. Then suddenly, all my attempts posted. It'd be swell if I could delete the superfluous replies. S.O.S.
  9. That's what I needed to hear. I wonder how many people bought La Habanera and had the same problem that I did. Anyway, with your voice of confidence behind them, I'll give Kino another try. Thanks again!
  10. I'll definitely check out those sites. I assume the Kino site will only list Kino DVDs though, eh? I bought a Kino disk a couple of years ago. It was Douglas Sirk's (then known as Detlef Sierck) La Habanera starring Zarah Leander. I'd always wanted to see Leander's work, and was also fascinated to see an early Sirk piece. 2/3 of the way into the flick though there was a glitch and the DVD skipped a good portion of the movie. I exchanged it for another copy and the same thing happened. I exchanged this copy for a third one to the same result. So now I admit I have a general distrus
  11. It looks as if it's not presently scheduled for another viewing. From its page, you can request a showing: http://tcmdb.com/title/title.jsp?scarlettTitleId=88913
  12. Greetings Forum Board! I've been haunting and posting on the Boards for about a week now. I'm both impressed and humbled by the knowlege of other posters here. At my age it's great to feel like a neophyte again! I'm curious to know if there are any favorite websites that posters use as a resource regarding new and upcoming DVD releases. I habitually check the Criterion Collection's (http://www.criterionco.com/asp) site, and this site which lists upcoming releases: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/bargain.php. Do you know of other sites? I'm curious if there are sites that would provi
  13. Can you suggest a good site to check out these sets? I've been going the following website to keep track of upcoming releases for the past year or so, but it's not always reliable, and for more information it only links to Amazon (which isn't very detailed): http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/bargain.php All the sets you mention have great potential, but I'm unsure of what's included. Forbidden Hollywood, for instance, is an intriguing title... I know I'll buy the Garland/Rooney set the first day it's released (and when is that?), but hope it'll include their Andy Hardy features (Debuta
  14. Henry Street was where young Fanny live in Funny Girl. In the stage version there was a featured song called "Henry Street" that was cut from the movie (though played as the underscore in an early scene).
  15. Thanks for the tip! I'd never heard of Live Flesh (how'd I miss that?). I'll have to check that out... How often do we see a sex symbol in a wheelchair? At least twice: heartthrob Bardem was excellent in (and in a wheelchair) The Sea Inside too.
  16. The man in the middle is Cal-Neva Lodge club manager Bert "Wingy" Grober. Mr. Sinatra was an investor in this club.
  17. Just Google their names and go to the images page. Here: http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=sinatra%20monroe&sa=N&tab=wi
  18. Good Morning, Eve is also one of the special features on the Busby Berkeley Collection. It can be found on the Dames DVD.
  19. I thought Bad Education was brilliant. It was probably my favorite film of 2004 (along with Sr. Bernal's other film .Motorcycle Diaries). If you see it again, look for Sr. Almodovar's Hitchcockian cameo -- he's plays Enrique's pool cleaner. The "Moon River" recording, by the way, is featured on the Mala Educacion soundtrack recording. And yes, All About My Mother was wonderful. I'm really enjoying how Almodovar is paying homage to these Hollywood genres. His next movie, Volver is about a ghost who returns to care for her daughters (one of whom is played by Penelope Cruz). The buzz
  20. "Moon River" was also hauntingly used in Pedro Almodovar's great Mala Educacion ("Bad Education")...
  21. Lots of them... 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. Fellini's Amarcord The Apartment The Awful Truth Brief Encounter Curse of the Demon The Horse's Mouth It Should Happen to You (Judy Holliday) Notorious The Red Shoes Station Agent Since You Went Away Wizard of Oz And there are films that I always attend whenever they're revived at one of the local rep houses (no matter how many times they're revived and in spite of the fact that I might own them on DVD): The Bad Seed La Belle et La Bete The Bicycle Thief Les Enfants du Paradis Funny Girl Gentlemen Prefer Blondes New York, Ne
  22. ...Robert Flaherty's 1922 classic Nanook of the North.
  23. Didn't Lowell Thomas also have a series of travel shorts? It might have been under the auspices of Universal Pictures or perhaps with 20th Century Fox' Movietones? Each episode would with end with Mr. Thomas regretfully announcing, "as the sun sets on ____..." as the screen would be filled with a lurid, technicolor sunset.
  24. There was a lot of "buzz" about this movie during its filming. The production was to be lush and the cast was legendary (Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner, Jane Fonda, Cicely Tyson, Robert Morley, Will Geer...); all directed by George Cukor. But the filming was difficult, marred by technical difficulties. Supposedly Ms. Taylor was unhappy with her food and was having meals flown in from California. It's said that Katherine Hepburn, Shirley MacLaine and James Coco were originally to be featured as well. This bi-national ("Sinyaya ptitsa" in Russian) film opened to poor reviews in the U.S., and
