Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

211 Strictly a guess, but Alice Adams? If so, I've seen it

214 I could be way off base here, but I feel like this is some Haley Mills thing I've seen, but I have no idea what the name is.

215 Whichever Orson Welles films he played Falstaff. Chimes at Midnight, maybe. I haven't seen it.

216 A Patch of Blue - yes

217 90 per cent sure it's Sugarland Express, in which case, yes

218 The Last Temptation of Christ - no

219 The Sixth Sense - yes

220 Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - yes

So, only three I'm absolutely sure I've seen, but depending on how my guesses turn out maybe as many as six.

212 is I believe Christmas Holiday, and which is as far as I know the only movie Gene Kelly costarred with Deanna Durbin.

(...for a while I couldn't tell if that actually was Durbin or Ann Jeffreys)

This one here, TB. For a while I was thinking it might be another movie that Yvonne De Carlo and Rod Cameron starred in together.

A movie titled Salome, Where She Danced (1945).

Here's the IMDb webpage for it...

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038046/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_80

(...btw, Salome AZ is a little burg out in the middle of nowhere that still exists...I'd drive through it quite often while traveling between Prescott AZ and L.A., and before moving to Sedona)

De Carlo and Cameron were also in the lavish Technicolor western FRONTIER GAL. In fact, all their films together were westerns and in Technicolor (made at Universal).

I certainly didn't know Kelly and Durbin had ever been in a picture together. What studio was that from?

All of Durbin's feature films were at Universal. MGM loaned Kelly to Universal.

IMDb says Universal, sewhite.

I don't remember now where I read this - possibly a Kelly biography or an article somewhere - that MGM recognized Kelly's talent and wrapped him up to a long-term contract, but the studio didn't really know what to DO with him until they loaned him out to pair with Rita Hayworth at Columbia for Cover Girl, and then the lights went up in their eyes, and they were all like "Ohh ...". I see this non-MGM movie is from the same year.

I remember watching Christmas Holiday on TCM during I believe a SUTS tribute day to Durbin a while back.

Kelly plays a criminal in this one who Durbin marries, but the marriage and Kelly are ill-fated.

(...nice Christmas movie, eh?!) ;)

A print of CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY is currently on YouTube.

Script is based on a Somerset Maugham story.

OH, you mean the same guy who wrote "The Letter" and "Of Human Bondage" ?

(...NOW I'm startin' to see why THIS "Christmas" flick ends up like it does!!!) 

LOL

Yeah, well, I'll bet Christmas at the Maugham household was a real joyous affair every year! LOL

Boy, I may not have seen any of these.

I only know because of the name on the luggage. 224 is Death of a Salemsan, which I think is in some sort of rights hell or is never shown because Arthur Miller didn't like it .... or something. Anyway, haven't seen it.

225 I wanted to say it was Desperate Hours, but then I started thinking that was Bogart. Anyway, something similar. I haven't seen it, whatever the title.

226 Psycho - no. Does that make me a terrible classic movie fan? I"ve seen plenty of clips, and I saw the almost shot-for-shot Gus Van Zandt remake. But never sat down and watched the original all the way through.

227 The Rocky Horror Picture Show - oh wait, I have seen this one!

228 Jagged Edge - no, but I caught the last two minutes on HBO about 30 years ago, so I know how it ends.

229 - Aladdin - no

230 - I'm getting deja vu looking at this still, but I'm drawing a blank.

So, depending on what the first three are (can't identify any of them), I may have only seen one of these.

This one sewhite, which as you said has a similar premise of a household being held hostage, but with the added plot point of an attempt by the hostage takers at an assassination of a President, is titled Suddenly.

(...it is said Frank Sinatra had this film pulled from circulation for many years after JFK was assassinated)

Interesting you've seen the remake and not the original.
