284 Giant- One of Elizabeth Taylor's best performances,  2 well deserved Oscar nominations for Rock Hudson and James Dean

285 The Three Faces Of Eve - great Oscar winning performance by Joanne Woodward, Lee J Cobb is good as the doctor, I wish the movie was longer though

286 A Child Is Waiting I think this is Judy Garland's best dramatic performance as a kind hearted teacher of Down's syndrome kids, Burt Lancaster is also fine as more tough instructor

281 looks like Jamaica Inn

That looks like Norma Shearer, and she wasn't in Jamaica Inn. It's The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1934).

#287 - Thunderbolt & Lightfoot (1974)

#288 - Working Girl (1988)?

#289 - Falling Down (1992)

#290 - The Simpsons Movie (2007)

I doubt I would have been able to identify it, but thanks to my late arrival home, I see 281 has already been identified as The Barretts of Wimpole  Street, which I've seen.

My guess for 283 is also Twelve O'Clock High, which I've started twice maybe, but haven't seen enough it to qualify as having "seen it", I don't think.

284 is Giant - no.

285 definitely not a scene that appears in the movie, but that's some sort of highly symbolic promo for The Three Faces of Eve - yes

Others have already identified 286 and 287 - I've seen bits of 286, but I can't say I've really seen either.

288 is Working Girl - yes

289 is Falling Down - seen parts of it in my HBO days but never the whole movie.

290 is The Simpsons Movie - yes. In contrast to Arsan, who didn't there was such a movie, I was there I believe on opening night!

So, looks like I've only seen four, depending on what 282 is.

I haven't seen 261 If You Could Only Cook but I want to see this movie. I think I own it as it's part of a Screwball Comedy collection that I have.

263 Tender Comrade-- I really liked this film

265 A Streetcar Named Desire-- I thought this was a great film, but I don't know if I'd need to watch it again and again

266 Some Like it Hot-- Love this movie, never tire of it

I still haven't seen 270 Mulan-- Came out at almost the end of the 8th grade for me. I think this is the first Disney movie that I didn't see in the theater.

271 It Happened One Night- Love this movie. YOUNG PEOPLE IN LOVVVVVVE

272 Spellbound--An interesting Hitchcock film that doesn't get enough attention

274 On the Waterfront-- I actually liked Marlon Brando in this film.  Lee J. Cobb and Rod Steiger even weren't over the top like they normally are

I haven't seen 275 I Want to Live! I think I have this on my DVR

279 Top Gun-- I saw this a long time ago

284 Giant-- This is a great movie, but it's long

285 Three Faces of Eve--An interesting film

290 The Simpsons Movie-- My (now) husband and I may have had a date night and seen this on opening day.

292 is The Corn is Green - yes

293 is The Bishop's Wife - yes

Pretty sure 294 is She Wore a Yellow Ribbon - yes

295 is The Seven Year Itch - yes

296 is probably Midnight Lace - yes

297 is Bonnie & Clyde - yes

298 is probably Live and Let Die, which many think is the best Moore Bond movie, but while I've seen bits of it, I don't think I can say I've really seen it.

299 is Down & Out in Beverly Hills, I think - no

300 is Speed  - yes

The only one I absolutely can't identify is the first one with the naked male showering. 

If I'm correct on my guesses, then I've seen seven of 10, which would tie once again for my highest "score".

Have you seen these classic films:

291.

Screen Shot 2019-12-07 at 9.09.32 AM.jpeg Search for Beauty, yes. Very scandalous for the 1930s, and probably one of the randiest of the pre-codes.

292.

Screen Shot 2019-12-07 at 9.06.44 AM.jpeg The Corn is Green, yes, Bette Davis was wonderful as ever.

293.

imgres22.jpg The Bishop's Wife, haven't seen yet. Maybe in the next few days....

294.

screen.jpeg She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, yes, good film.

295.

Screen Shot 2019-12-07 at 7.07.03 AM.jpeg Seven Year Itch, only saw part of it.

296.

screen 2.jpeg Midnight Lace, yes. Doris Day was good as usual.

297.

c5a43-screen2bshot2b2016-06-082bat2b3-49 Bonnie and Clyde. A personal favorite.

298.

Screen shot 2017-03-03 at 5.25.48 PM.png Live and Let Die. Blah, but Jane Seymour was lovely.

299.

Screen Shot 2019-11-05 at 11.39.36 AM.jpeg Down and Out in Beverly hills. Wonderful first half, distressingly flat second half.

300.

Screen Shot 2019-12-07 at 9.03.09 AM.jpeg Speed. Solid action cinema, well acted by its quartet of players.

Search For Beauty...

I'll have to add this film to my list.  Not so much for the guy in the shower, but for the description of being one of the "randiest precodes."

291, I haven't seen.

292 The Corn is Green.  One of the Bette Davis films I haven't seen.  It's on my DVR.

293 The Bishop's Wife- Seen it

294 She Wore a Yellow Ribbon- I haven't seen it

295 Seven Year Itch- Yes. As a joke, on our 7th wedding anniversary, my husband and I watched this film together.

296 Midnight Lace- Great film!

297 Bonnie and Clyde- Just saw it for the first time about a month ago

298 Live and Let Die- No

299 Down and Out in Beverly Hills- No

300 Speed- I think I saw it when it first came out, then the "can't stop the bus" jokes got old quickly. I haven't seen the film since.

It's way too overkill. i saw it once, and no more. it's not the curt lines really, its the whole gestalt of the film. It involves a group of dubious publishers who lure athletes (including Buster Crabbe and Ida Lupino) and beauty contest winners to add dignity to what is really a precursor of sorts to the Playboy/Playgirl type. The women wear see-through clothing with no bras, the men go around only in short swim trunks (and in one scene nothing at all from the back), and when its all over, it ends with the words The End planted on two men's rear ends. there's also a bizarre scene, a "celebration of beauty" that given the physical types on show, has disturbing Nazi-like parallels. it's weird.

This sounds like something that needs to be seen to be believed.

The only way it went out the way that it did was because it was released at the precise moment when there was a boycott on films at least in Philadelphia that caused attendance numbers to go down dramatically. Amidst all the hubbub around that, the film slipped out with a quickly appointed approved seal,only because it was finished and because they did not actually take a look at it;  even  by even pre-Code standards, it was too hot to trot. Only two cities, New York and Chicago showed it unedited, and then it was locked up for decades.

Oops, Rio Grande, not Yellow Ribbon. Seems like John Wayne wore that cavalry outfit in a lot of films right at the end of the '40s, beginning of the '50s. That's the one John Ford had to make to get a chance to make The Quiet Man, right? Often talked about on TCM but never shown, at least any time recently. So, I haven't seen it. That knocks me down to six of 10.

I have seen all except for 291 and 292. I was surprised that it was Buster Crabbe in that picture, I thought it was Fernando Lamas at first.

It was one of Buster's very first pictures at Paramount.
