    The Outlaw

    Yes, I agree! Many times I have been excited to find a film on Youtube only to discover that it has been taken down. Two examples that come to mind are Beyond The Rocks (1922) and Massacre (1934). Both films I had, at one time, found on Youtube, and both were eventually removed (or atleast I can no longer find them. Although that is not saying much, given my extremely low technological skill >.<)

    The Outlaw

    Thank you! I'll have to search that up on Youtube then and give it a watch this week. I'm not sure if there's already a thread on it, but I think we should start a thread about classic films available on Youtube, particularly lesser known gems or hard to find films. I've run across several silent films on Youtube before, and early Pre-code films of the early 30s.

    The Outlaw

    I don't believe I've seen this film before, I'd like to watch it. Until more recent years, many films with these themes were either not widely known, or the undertones/themes were not acknowledged; I'm finding so many gems from this genre that I'd never heard of before.
  4. Its so hard to pick a favorite western, but lately I've been in the mood to watch a lot of my favorite western movies (perhaps because of how inviting the hot, open prairie and desert looks in the midst of all the snow I've been getting in my neck of the woods lately, and how cooped up it feels. Riding out in the west seems very appealing at the moment)! Don't get me wrong, I love John Wayne, but my favorite will always be Clint Eastwood Hang 'Em High (1968) was my favorite, you have to love the classic The Good The Bad and The Ugly (1966), but after rewatching A Fistful of Dollars (1964) the
  5. I was talking with some friends this evening, and found that some of my past coworker buddies at another facility are already getting the vaccine at their facility for staff who want it. We haven't been offered it at my facility yet, but I was shocked how quickly they are already implementing it and making it available to some of the other healthcare facilities
  6. I am a frontline healthcare worker, and I have to say, this pandemic has really been testing our strength and endurance. I'm crisis response so I've been working in multiple covid facilities over this year and I feel positively drained. Here's hoping that next year we can all look back on this as a thing of the past and that the world will begin to recover. Stay safe my friends.
  7. It has been quite a long time since I watched that one! I may just have to have a movie night soon to revisit it. Joseph Schildkraut is always a delight
  8. The Unholy Three is actually one of my absolutely favorite Chaney films :) although the concept seems difficult to put across, it works very well (mostly due to Lon Chaney's skill and extraordinary acting). Lon's believable performance really made the film stand out to me. Looking back at many of the plots from his films, they sound ridiculous on paper- circus performers pretending to be armless, mob leaders who want to take over cities in straw hats and steal legs- it sounds crazy, but somehow Chaney's gripping performances pull the movie through and make it a masterpiece.
  9. I adore this film. Ramon Navarro and Norma Shearer in one of their best performances. The chemistry of the two makes it seem that much more real. In a way it reminds me of a gender switched version of Roman Holiday- the idea of a royal going out of the closed atmosphere of the palace and into the world, falling in love with a non-royal, and of course that ending which is both touching and heartbreaking
  10. Nomads of the North (1920) is hilarious. I love Lon Chaney, he is wonderful, but Nomads of the North just cracks me up. Unintentionally hilarious and not one a first time movie watcher should see but it is so funny.
  11. A beautiful film I grew up watching the Cary Grant/Deborah Kerr version and was never a big fan of that version; for many years I was unaware that another version existed. I watched Love Affair not expecting much and was surprised to find it such a touching, warm film that really pulls at the heartstrings Well cast, beautifully done. Ouspenskaya and Boyer in particular left an impression. I think the scene at the end with Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne is my favorite; I watched a comparison of that scene in both this version and the remake. In the Cary Grant remake it seemed a bit over the to
  12. Massacre (1934) is one of my all time favorites. The subject matter, one Hollywood often hesitated to touch on, was shown realistically, the suffering, the injustice, the conditions that Native Americans were forced to live in on the reservations. I'm not a fan of non-natives playing native Americans, but I didn't mind Richard playing that role in the film, because it was handled respectfully and I felt the film was really trying to point out the injustices and not be offensive. (I also just really like Richard so I'm a big fan no matter what he is in )
  13. Ronald Coleman was brilliant in The White Sister, as was Lillian Gish. My favorite scene was when he comes to see her when she's been kicked out of her home and he surprises her with a visit- wonderful emotion
  14. I do the same thing. Lets me focus all my attention on what is on the screen, every slight motion, every expression- thats music enough for me
