  1. Bette Davis in THE LETTER (1940) Click for [steve Hayes on Bette Davis and THE LETTER|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhUVWZs5IgQ] Director William Wyler sits on her mannerisms and squeezes out of Bette Davis what may be the ultimate depiction of sexual repression gone haywire. Set in the jungles of Malaysia with a thundering score by Max Steiner and strong support by James Stephenson as her lawyer and sinister Gale Sondergaard as the wife of the man shes murdered, its high melodrama at its steamy best. "The Letter" was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including best picture, best actress, and best director.
  2. The first movie that Film Fan *Steve Hayes* saw was *THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH* (1952). *[steve Hayes reviews the Oscar winning movie HERE!|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoghIgtM0to]*
  3. *[steve Hayes video review of HIS GIRL FRIDAY|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkTPkhzRs_Y]* *HIS GIRL FRIDAY* (1940) Sparks fly as Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant spar over a lead story and a romantic reunion amidst the background of a big city newsroom. Howard Hawks fills the screen with one of the greatest supporting casts of comedic character actors ever assembled and directs them at breakneck speed. Fast, furious and hilarious from start to finish. The Year's Wildest, Wittiest Whirlwind of a Love Battle... Outrageously Racy... Sparkling... Gay!

    THEM! (1954)

    [*STEVE HAYES: Tired Old Queen at the Movies --- THEM!*|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTeoID3NkyY] *THEM! (1954)* THEM! THEM! the little girl screams and so begins one of the classic sci-fi /horror films of the Cold War period. Atomic energy from A-bomb experiments unleashes giant ants in the deserts of New Mexico and its up to James Arness, James Whitmore, and Oscar winner Edmund Gwenn as a kindly scientist, to warn the world of the oncoming invasion. This was Warner Bros.' highest grossing film of 1954. With its taut direction and superb performances, this film was the ALIEN of its day and resulted in decades worth of monster movies. http://www.youtube.com/STEVEHAYESTOQ|http://www.youtube.com/user/STEVEHAYESTOQ
  5. CLICK TO SEE THE VIDEO of [THE FURIES - Movie Review by STEVE HAYES|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxcmVaY3Pfo] *STEVE HAYES: Tired Old Queen at the Movies -- THE FURIES (1950)* A Shoot-em-up with a difference. Veteran Western director Anthony Mann, mixes genres and puts Barbara Stanwyck, Wendall Corey and character actor Walter Huston in his last role, through their paces in this film noir set in New Mexico in the 1800s. Shot in black and white with shades of Sigmund F, this story of a rancher and his daughter at odds for his vast domain, has elements of classic Greek drama as well as the dark crime dramas of the period. Fast, furious and fascinating.
  6. *Steve Hayes suggests DESK SET (1955)* [steve Hayes: Tired Old Queen at the Movies|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYxtEJQ_N88] What do you think? *DESK SET* (1955) A holiday treat featuring the eighth pairing of *Katharine Hepburn* and *Spencer Tracy* and their first film together in color. The mysterious man at a big TV network proves to be computer engineer Richard Sumner (Tracy), who's been ordered to keep his special mission a secret. He meets his match in Department head Bunny Watson (Hepburn), who sets out to unmask his real purpose. Light, breezy and perfect for playing in the background while taking down the Christmas tree or curling up and watching while waiting for midnight on New Year's Eve. [Happy New Year!|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYxtEJQ_N88] *Bunny Watson:* I don't smoke, I only drink champagne when I'm lucky enough to get it, my hair is naturally natural, I live alone... and so do you. *Richard Sumner:* How do you know that? *Bunny Watson:* Because you're wearing one brown sock and one black sock.
  7. I'm with Steve Hayes and his pitch for THE BISHOP'S WIFE as my favorite Christmas movie. It's Hollywood hokum and glorious glamour and wonderfully nostalgic all at the same time. STEVE HAYES:Tired Old Queen at the Movies, THE BISHOP'S WIFE
  8. This week STEVE HAYES: Tired Old Queen at the Movies vlogs one of his favorite movie musicals: WITH A SONG IN MY HEART (1952) Brooklyn Bernhardt, Susan Hayward stars in this spectacular, musical autobiographical salute to crippled songbird, Jane Froman. Shot in Technicolor with songs sung by Froman, it's a tour de-force for Hayward in what was probably her biggest popular hit. With Thelma Ritter as her side-kick and Robert Wagner as a lonely soldier she sings to when the chips are down.
  9. I just checked out a more recent review from this Steve Hayes. He seems to have stepped it up with movie clips and images. This one is for "Written On The Wind" -- one of my favs There are several more since the first link was posted. Thanks you dougiedo -- I'm enjoying this series.
  10. Thanks for the recommendation on "The Lookout." I'll catch it this weekend.
  11. I found him on Youtube this week and posted about him on another thread here --- he's actually why I joined the forum. He clearly loves the movies, knows his stuff and is a talented guy. Each episode is better than the last. I'm excited about where he's going with this series.
  12. Do you think Film Noir is so much a part of the classic Hollywood era that contemporary Film Noir falls short? Steve Hayes puts BRICK and THE MALTESE FALCON in the same league. Do you agree? See STEVE HAYES: Tired Old Queen at the Movies - THE MALTESE FALCON and BRICK here:
