  1. My dad did introduce me to old films, but I turned it into a passion and studied them and managed to learn more about them. Now I'm the one to introduce him to films.
  2. I think that cartoons are a great idea. I have recently been studying Mickey Mouse cartoons and Looney Tunes and they still have the same nostalgic value that some of the old movies do. They are a part of movie past and they are certainly works of art in their own way. Mickey's "Building a Building" (1933) and "The Brave Little Tailor" (1938) are some great examples of cartoons as art.
  3. I completely agree with you. This whole 3D craze drives me insane! The same thing happened in the 50s and look how well some of those have aged! I feel like 3D is just a tool to make mediocre movies box-office material. I think that if the movie is good enough, 3D should not be necessary. I will admit that Hugo had 3D done right where it enhanced the scenary and didn't distract from the story. As for colorizing black and white movies, I think that it does take away from the art. These movies were styled for black and white photography and when they are given color they make the sets look overdone and uneven. Personally I never had a problem with black and white and even if movies continued to be in black and white to this day, I wouldn't mind. As classic movie lovers I think we can all agree that there is nothing quite like black and white.
  4. I said it once and I'll say it again. Robert Walker should have been nominated for Strangers on a Train (1951) because he totally modernized the psycho killer and other famous performances of maniacs wouldn't have been as good if he didn't start the tradition.
  5. I showed my dad Sullivan's Travels (1941) and he loved it. He always wants me to show him another one like it, but I have to tell him that there is only one movie like Sullivan's Travels.
  6. This is great news! I had wanted to see this film for a while! Now let's just hope they find more of Three Weekends (1928)!

  8. I bought it a while ago. I really liked it! I think Glenda and Mary made a excellent team and I'm always game for staring at Lyle Talbot!
  9. That's funny! His movies are very fun so who could hate them?
  10. In all honesty, I never saw a old film that I didn't like.
  11. Thank-you for updating and informing me on some information on one of my favorite actors! I always liked him, but strangely my grandma doesn't. I said to her, "One thing I will never understand about you is how you don't like John Garfield." In my eyes he deserves all the praise Brando gets since I think John invented the kind of acting Brando does. He's good in everything I see him in and he has never disappointed me. Also off the screen he seems like quite the stand-up guy who was open-minded and spoke for what he believed in.
  12. Great points and arguments made! I'm glad we're on the same page!
  13. I would agree with Wallace Beery. He played characters who weren't supposed to be good looking and it's hard to picture him good looking, but of course he is a good actor!
  14. She should be ashamed of herself. She said that she thinks Joan was jealous of her, but she was jealous of Joan! She had the fame and talent in one little finger that she could never have! She is nothing but a liar who thought that she could get revenge on the woman who took her in when she was a orphan. She served not getting a penny from Joan! I'm going to start cursing, that's how much of a liar she is! Long live the real image of Joan- a glamorous kind-hearted movie star!
