  1. I have been having quite a ball, having a bit of a Ken Russell summer. He's such an original and his films are so visually stunning. The Devils - wow. I just saw it for the first time a few months ago. I have to admire any film that I can say is one of the most disturbing I have ever seen. One always gets his money's worth with Oliver Reed and how cool that Vanessa Redgrave would take a bold chance with this film. I watched Tommy (which I've seen many times) and also Lisztomania and The Devils in one week, and then I had to take a break from visual overstimulation. I was just about
  2. If Warren Oates is in a film, I'm willing to watch it. I hope to make it through all of his work soon.
  3. With apologizes to many other greats, Burton is my choice for best actor of the twentieth century. He gives fantastic performances in many of his films, and he can even save a dud or sometimes be the only worthwhile part of it. I recently spent roughly two hours watching 1968's Candy, for which is difficult to drum up any support, even as a product of its time with an interesting cast. Thank goodness for Burton, who manages to be the best part of this dreck. I love Burton's work in My Cousin Rachel, Look Back in Anger, The Night of the Iguana, Anne of the Thousand Days, Beck
  4. I'm a fan of Lifeboat. It doesn't seem to be shown as much as many of Hitchcock's other films, but I have seen it a few times, starting in childhood. I'm going purely from memory here. Tallulah is over-the-top and wonderful; I'm sure Hitch knew exactly what he was doing in casting her. Yes, there are some scenes that can be a little silly (I seem to remember she and John Hodiak kissing right before the boat capsizes, which seemed less than realistic, but this is an entertaining film and I can't quibble about a few details. ) Lifeboat is well cast. Heather Angel, Walter Slezak
  5. 1. Shadow of a Doubt 2. Rebecca 3. Psycho 4. Strangers on a Train 5. Suspicion Although I'm a big fan of his glorious 1950's and 1960's color films, I prefer his black and whites from the 1940's. Psycho is simply in a class by itself.
  6. I recently re-watched Compulsion and (for about the hundredth time) The Way We Were. I enjoy your father's performance in both. The scene on the sailboat with your father and Redford in The Way We Were is perfection.
  7. How did I leave these films off my list? Carrie (1976) Rosemary's Baby (1968) And I believe "Mystery of the Wax Museum" is 1933, not 1932.
  8. These aren't necessarily in order. They are the horror films that I never tire of. 1. Dracula (1931) 2. Psycho (1960) 2. The Shining (1980) 3. The Exorcist (1973) 4. The Ring (2002) 4. Cat People (1942) 5. Frankenstein (1931) 6. The Mummy (1932) 7. The Mystery of the Wax Museum (1932) 8. I Walked with a Zombie (1943) 9. The Leopard Man (1943) 10. Pet Sematary (1986) 11. The Innocents (1961) 12. The Omen (1976) 13. The Lost Boys (1986) 14. The Others (2001) 15. Burnt Offerings (1976) - (I get one guilty pleasure, right?)
