  1. M: It starts with a seemingly innocent child’s game (like one potato two potato) being played in the yard. The words are disturbing to the mother who yells at her child to stop but the children continue to sing the words which have no real meaning to them but the mother knows it is about the murderer. The words are a foreshadowing. The mother’ friend says “as long as you can hear them…” It’s when you don’t hear the children that is when you start to worry (I remember my mother saying the same thing: As long as I hear you, I know you are OK, It’s when I don’t hear you that I worry that
  2. DARK PASSAGE: Another one of my favorite stars: Humphrey Bogart. It stars off with a man in a 55 gallon drum and he is obviously an escaped convict. The barrel has “San Quentin” stenciled on the top and we hear the sirens of the police car attempting to catch up with the truck. The barrel is rocked back and forth till it falls from the truck. It tumble down the hill. We watch from the inside of the barrel as he crawls out and stumbles to a stream that is flowing under a bridge.

  4. THE LETTER: First, I have to confess that I consider Betty Davis to be the best actress to ever grace the silver screen. William Wyler knew how to use Betty Davis to get the best performance out of her. He was also one of the best director’s ever. The first thing we see is the full moon with some dramatic music which is a premonition of things to come. The music settles down and we see a sign for a rubber plantation and a tree with a collection system for the rubber. This sets the location as a farm in the tropics. The screen slowly pans till we see some of the workers playing the musi
  5. La Bete Humaine: First impression: This opening sequence is very powerful and dynamic. The cinematography is amazing. I love that we see the movement of the train and it’s path from the engineers perspective. The long front of the engine barreling to it’s destination. You feel the power and movement of the train. The powerful music finally comes in as the train reaches it’s destination and stops. The music adds the excitement of finally arriving to the station. We know that this is going to be some ride!
