  1. Thanks, Lori Ann, but I'm in more of a mood for a serious ghost film. The reason I created this thread is because I can't come up with the titles of really good ghost films, outside of the three I mentioned in my OP. I'm starting to wonder if a good ghost film is as rare a sighting as a real ghost.
  2. Yes, I did. I liked it enough to watch it a second time.
  3. Thanks. I've seen two of those and found House fun and Carnival eerie. The Phantom Carriage I've yet to see.
  4. I've been in a mood for a spooky thrill lately but, outside of THE UNINVITED (1944), THE INNOCENTS (1961) and THE HAUNTING (1963) I can't really think of any to watch. Any suggestions?
  5. Forget it, MM. The only people who care about these smears are the Trump base. If this election is about Biden Trump hopes to pull off a victory. If this election is about Trump and his handling of covid 19 (which is now reaching a peak in its deadly impact on the nation) Biden wins. It's that simple. Bye, bye Donald.
  6. Is anyone else as in love with the villains in Hitchcock films as I am? Was it Hitch who once said that evil is at its most effective when it comes in an attractive package? Possibly it wasn't Hitch. It might have been Charles Laughton in reference to Night of the Hunter. Nevertheless, even if Sir Alfred didn't actually say it many of his films reflect it. There was chatty little Cockney assassin Edmund Gwenn in Foreign Correspondent, suave, sophisticated Herbert Marshall in the same film, as well as Otto Kruger in Saboteur. James Mason was admirably performing the same cultured
  7. Yeh but the audience doesn't even really care about what happens to Elster. Scotty and Madeleine/Judy are the primary concerns of the film. Elster is just an after thought.
  8. Flynn turned down an offer to make King Solomon's Mines, settling on Kim instead. That turned out to be a mistake inasmuch as Solomon would turn be one of the top two or three box office hits of 1950 and would have probably have lead the actor to receive better scripts than he would be offered. The thought of making Solomon on location in Africa didn't appeal to Errol, as opposed to working in more comfort in India. Flynn paid a career price for that decision, much to the delight of Stewart Granger (a Flynn fan, ironically) when he was then offered the lead role in Solomon. When Granger l
  9. A supporter of Donald Trump complain about someone else's arrogance? Oh, yeah, I forgot, she's a woman. By the way, I don't see Harris as arrogant. She's smart, articulate and confident.
  10. Keep telling yourself that. Those thoughts should help you sleep for, oh, about another eight nights.
  11. President Harris . . . it has a ring to it, doesn't it? Perhaps one day. Is that the sound of Movie Madness' hair standing straight up in the air I hear?
  12. When Kim Novak made an appearance at TIFF five years ago she said that (SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T SEEN VERTIGO) she identified with the two roles she played in the film. She connected with Madeleine as an artificially created image but, perhaps even more so, with Judy, as a person who wanted to be loved for just being herself. The emotional vulnerability that Stewart and Novak both bring to the film's final scene (she honest with him for the first time in the film) adds to the devastating irony of what is about to happen to them.
  13. I've noticed you still haven't revealed your source for this "poll." You know, faking an imaginary poll in order to make a partisan statement doesn't count as a real poll.
