  1. Truly an odd Hitchcock flick. Not a bad film, just a strange one from Hitch. I've always wondered how much Joan had to do with that one.
  2. Perhaps it has something to do with linguistics, (kind of my area), but even a Canadian Scot like myself can understand this movie. I've always had a love of Yiddish, but without even a touch, there are many traditions that allow one to feel home in the film. Check into the Irish Babhdóir, the matchmaker, Eire being a country of small counties, there is a singles festival in the town of Lisdoonvarna in the West Lands, (we have similar times in Scotland, often during a cèilidh, and little helps men and women find each other like dancing). Visiting John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara in John Ford's "
  3. I'm sorry, speedracer5. As I noted, I hadn't as yet learned the navigation, thus, what was meant to be a response to midwestan was set to you. I think I now have things pretty much straightened out. midwestan has the response that should have been sent, and if you prefer, please simply ignore the comment mistakenly sent to you. If you don't mind, I'll continue to follow you. I hope this hasn't caused you too much trouble. Take care and be well...-d-

  5. midwestan-- I believe the lustre lack of a favourite film come's down to the language used, a specific type of acting which was exciting at the time, but failed to have staying power beyond it's time. Some experiments work, and some don't. The most serious problem some films have, in my opinion, is the subject matter. If a film uses a plotline that gives us a story that is timeless...one that would work no matter the time, or place, if done well, its message will come through in any time. Many films, though, attempt to be very timely, using plots and storylines that work extremely well wh

  7. "Crossing Delancey" A lovely, timeless, late 1980s movie. Amy Irving is her usual chameleon self. Peter Riegert is great, as are all the leads and sub-leads-a wonderful cast, from the leads to the background players. Brilliantly written and directed, both by women, not at all common in those days. At least, seldom credited in the period from the beginning of the Hayes time to the turn of the last century. The soundtrack, especially the themes, is terrific, in an understated way. Not my usual cup of Scotch, and I can see how people could easily love or hate this film. I was rather am
