Hi, CineBaby -- By the by...looking at an old vhs tape of mine of "Dead Man's Eyes" and Acquanetta is gorgeous!! What does this have to do with color??? Hey...I'm talking of Acquanetta.

 

AcQUAnetta! I love it!

 

Hey, DSClassic -- I like The Color Purple and The Pink Panther. Deep Red, eh? Giallo definitely applies to this thread of yours.

 

I really need to watch Kieslowski's "Color" trilogy.

 

Pink Flamingos is an interesting choice. Do they dance in the film?

 

 

Hola, Visualfeast -- I just watched Blue Velvet for the very first time last weekend. I liked it a lot. Nice choice.

 

Howdy, ButterscotchGREER (or is that green? ;) ) -- I like your list! The Blue Gardenia! Ahhh, Blue Skies.

 

Hi, Miss Loather -- A Clockwork Orange (I loathe this film)

 

I thought the thread was about favorites. Do you loathe your favorites? I LOVE your selection, though. What exquisite taste you possess.

 

Orange and Yellow are my favorite colors.

 

Wolf whistle!

 

My FAVORITE movie with a color in the title is this one:

There is only one scarlet in film history and that's it right there. Come to think of it, I can't even think of another scarlet that really matters. But then again, I'm new to classic film. :P

Why is Red River a favorite? Maybe you could explain that one day. One fine day.

 

I didn't know that you cared so much, Blondie. I did talk a little bit about my reasons for why I liked Red River on a certain persnickety poster's thread (look for the caps):

By the way, is "blonde" a color? Why, yes, it can be. Here's another favorite of mine because it features ONE of my favorite blondes (not MY favorite, though) and it's a spoof of The 39 Steps.

You only described the relationship between Dunston and the girl he left behind.

 

I also said that it's a very good "father/son" western. So you want more, huh?

 

Let's see, should I talk about Red River or My Darling Clementine or The

Shop Around the Corner or The Misfits or The Fountainhead or

Morocco or They Came to Cordura or The General Died at Dawn

or Return to Paradise or Gone... I guess I could focus on Red River. I

know Red River is a HUGE favorite of yours because you just LOVE the female

characters in the film.

 

I'm going to Tiffany's to calm down.

 

Yes, please do, Holly GoLoudly.

Hi, DSClassic -- Have you seen Deep Red Or any Giallo

 

No, I haven't seen Deep Red. It's one of my brother's favorite Argento films, though.

 

I've seen Suspiria, Blood and Black Lace (color title and a pretty decent film), and Hatchet for the Honeymoon.

 

My brother is a big Argento film. I haven't explored his films yet. Argento loves buckets of blood. :D

Hey FrankGrimes :)

Actually there are 2 Argento movies no overly gory

1-Cat O Nine Tails

2-The Bird with the Crystal Plumage - I love this movie almost as much as Deep Red

Deep Red he really let the gore loose and his movies tended to get gorier...

By the 1990s his Giallo wasnt as good and I will say his recent stuff has been nothing short of poop

I like Suspiria, Opera and Tenebre in addition to the ones I named above

And Four Flies and Grey Velvet as well

Like most directors, I dont like every single movie, but in this case I like several..

He is referred to as the Italian Hitchcock..

Bird with Crystal Plumage and Deep Red I like better than a lot of Hitchcock movies save for maybe Psycho, Birds, North by Northwest,maybe Rear Window...

What's up, DSClassic? -- Deep Red he really let the gore loose and his movies

tended to get gorier...

 

I've seen some scenes from Deep Red and it's quite violent.

 

And Four Flies and Grey Velvet as well

 

That's the Argento film my brother wants to see the most. It's yet another "color" film.

Dario loves to utilize color in his films. He's very artistic.

 

He is referred to as the Italian Hitchcock..

 

I find this quote from Hitch to be very funny:

 

From IMDb:

 

About Dario Argento and his film Profondo Rosso (1975), "This young Italian guy is

starting to worry me."

Was it the freudian (SP) slip Cinemaven ?

FrankGrimes, you have recommended many movies to me, I really have to return the favor

Do me a favor:

See Deep Red , Bird with Crystal Plumage, Cat O Nine Tails

I will also recommend these to you

Whatever Happened to Solange

Who Saw Her Die

The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh

The Case of the Bloody Iris

These are all keepers in my collection

I will also recommend the 2007 Zodiac , very enjoyable

Frank, out of all the males in this forum I really enjoy chatting with you the most..you're comments are always welcome..I sincerely mean that...

As for the women, the cooper girls,missgoddess and Cinemaven are all aces to me too...

Hey, DSClassic -- Frank, out of all the males in this forum I really enjoy

chatting with you the most..you're comments are always welcome..I sincerely

mean that...

 

Thanks, Giallo. That's very lofty praise. I appreciate it.

 

I love attempting to guess your interesting tastes in film. It's quite a challenge.

You're arguably the biggest film watcher on the board right now. You just plow

through title after title. You truly put me to shame. But then again, that ain't

hard to do.

 

As for the women, the cooper girls,missgoddess and Cinemaven are all aces

to me too...

 

CineMaven for sure. She's the most liveliest gal in town.

 

Cooper Girls? Meh. :D One cries all the doggone time, another obsesses over

chest hair and britches all the livelong day, and the other spends all her time fixing

her curtains and cleaning her room. Pretty they ain't. My biggest fear is that they

all get together and go watch a Gary Cooper film on the big screen. The thought

of such a thing is horrifying.

 

And who was the other again? Burrrrrr! Did it just get chilly in here? It's like a cat

with cold shoulders just walked over my grave.

 

FrankGrimes, you have recommended many movies to me, I really have to

return the favor Do me a favor: See Deep Red , Bird with Crystal Plumage,

Cat O Nine Tails

 

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll definitely get around to an Argento festival. My

brother is the one with the Argento DVDs. I've just started another "A" frostival,

I mean, festival. So far, I have found myself thinking, "I can't believe anyone

would think these films are that great." It's been disappointing to date. :)

 

Have you watched any Mario Bava films?

 

I will also recommend these to you

Whatever Happened to Solange

Who Saw Her Die

The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh

The Case of the Bloody Iris

 

That's an interesting mix of Giallos. I had not heard of any of them. You may be

getting me in serious trouble with these suggestions, too, since these films are

about psychos.

 

I will also recommend the 2007 Zodiac , very enjoyable

 

My brother saw this film twice in the theater. He liked it more the second time

than the first. I've heard good things about the film. My favorite comment about

the film was that it's a little similar to All the President's Men, which is a

film that I really like.
