Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

Ugh, all my typing seems to have disappeared while I looked at the most recent post. I must have hit a key I didn't want to.

So, to recap in as few keystrokes as possible, I know what every one of the newest films is except 181-183 and 187, and I've seen all the ones I know. So, I've seen at least six of these 10.

For sure I've seen 184 and 185 and 188 and 189.  

I just watched 184 a little bit ago.  I love the music and the art style.  One of my favorite Disney artists, Mary Blair, provided much of the art inspiration for the film.

I also love 189.  Jake Ryan, be still my heart!

Lots of Oscar fans thought it unfair that 3 time winner Walter Brennan won yet again in THE WESTERNER because they felt it a co-starring role with the legendary Gary Cooper & not support  Not me though

 

He was also ignored as Stumpy in RIO BRAVO

Top, how do you play this trivia game It appears you just say yes or no, correct?

It's not a game. Each day I am posting ten films from the 1920s to the 2000s, in order. People are commenting on which ones they've seen or haven't seen, which ones they like. Etc.

Also, in some cases, if it is a rare film on YouTube or coming up on TCM, then we'll mention that.

141 is my favorite of the bunch. 149 is one of my mom's favorite since she loves Patrick Swayze. 143 is considered by many to be Tracy and Hepburn's weakest film and while I agree it's not quite up there with ADAM'S RIB, WOMAN OF THE YEAR or GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER, I still liked the movie just the same.

He died a staggering awful death though didn't he, think he smoke e-5 pks per day & then, the most despicable act of his wife was sneaking a photo of him while in the hospital dying & sold it!!!

On Alan Ladd he was a long suffering guy & a lot had to do first with his mother, mentally unbalanced & then when he was a teen took poison & booze & died in his arms   Somewhat what he did at age 50 in '64  But, overall it was his lack of height that truly disturbed the actor  He'd even keep a board ion his office for tests odf actors & it had marks on it, if you were much taller no role Then the studio would either stand SHANE on a box or dig a hole  He was about 5'5 to 5[6 at best Now, Cagney much to most surprise at one time was 5'7, but he wasn't as [popular with the ladies as Alan

So, to recalculate, while I wasn't able to identify Les Miserables and The Westerner, I have seen them both. On the other hand, I thought the Molly Ringwald still was from Pretty in Pink, which I have seen, but it's actually from 16 Candles, which I haven't. So, on balance, once again I've seen seven of 10, still tied for my best.
