Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

That's the only one that has nothing to do with the serial killer Mike Myers. The franchise-makers apparently momentarily decided they were done with him (before making about eight more movies with him) but still wanted to hopefully financially capitalize on the title.

I've never seen Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan or Halloween H2O: 20 Years Later. I've never been a fan of the Star Trek franchise.

After the original Halloween I've seen only Season of the Witch, I think that's the title, the one with Dan O'Herlihy.

My opinion is that KHAN is the best in the original Star Trek franchise. Montalban steals every scene he's in...what a memorable villain.

That's what I've read, too. In fact, I remember reading in a magazine that the even numbers of the series were much better that the odd ones.

It's funny, they were! I think #3 was the dullest one, the search for Spock. And it didn't help that Nimoy was mostly off-screen.

741 It's the Bowery Boys/Dead End Kids... I'm going to guess Angels With Dirty Faces.  I'm not a fan of Gorcey & Co.'s shtick. I find them very tiresome.  If it's Angels With Dirty Faces, I've seen this film. If not,  then maybe, maybe not.

742 Hold Back the Dawn with Charles Boyer and Olivia de Havilland. I have this on the DVR but haven't watched it yet.

743 Not sure. I thought it was Four Jills in a Jeep, but I'm not sure.

744 I recognize Joel McCrea

745 The Tender Trap. Yes I like this movie very much.  I may have watched it a few times on Watch TCM while I've been working.  It's an easy movie to listen to and still know what's going on.

746 Looks like Lord of the Flies. I haven't seen this and it isn't particularly at the top of my list either.

747 I'll go with The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.  I haven't seen it, but maybe will someday.  Westerns aren't my favorite genre.

748 Looks like possibly an older Rita Hayworth.  I haven't seen this film.

749 Private Benjamin.  No.

750 Apollo 13.  Maybe a long time ago when it came out originally.  I remember the "Houston, we have a problem" being the go-to tagline for awhile.

I highly recommend Hold Back the Dawn.    Well done film and what I find interesting is the different acting approach De Havilland and Goddard take to their very different characters.

I haven't seen these three. In fact, I'd never even heard of the last one, as far as I can recall.

KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY and STARS IN MY CROWN are MGM films that air on TCM once or twice a year. Both are quite well made.

The reason I had put KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY and PRIVATE BENJAMIN both in this group is because I think the later Goldie Hawn film is a reworking of the Lana Turner film. They are both about the same type of character, a spoiled rich girl, who grows up while serving in the military.

ROAD TO SALINA was rather daring for its time. Hayworth, in her penultimate picture, is playing a cougar but there's an incest theme involving Walker's character and his sister. It was filmed on location in a beautiful part of Italy. 

According to the film's wiki page, one critic said (and I just love this quote): 

If your taste runs to 70s actors having 60s sex in a 50s film so that a 40s star can suffer, then Road to Salina is for you.

I've seen Dead EndHold Back the DawnThe Tender TrapLord of the FliesPrivate Benjamin and Apollo 13, so I will say six. I've seen part of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, but his highly lauded film, despite its stylishness, I've never been able to sit all the way through. Typically, I don't watch many Westerns. I was unable to identify any of the other three films.

Always wanted to see 751, but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere.

758 and 759 I've seen countless times. 758 is okay but 759 is just heart-wrenching with Jack Lemmon turning in one of his greatest performances. He's so heartbreaking especially towards the end of the film.

Yes, I think MISSING proves what a fine dramatic actor Lemmon was. Typically, he's associated with neurotic characters in comedies.

He made MASS APPEAL shortly after this, so maybe he was in a more "serious" mindset at that point of his career.

Some of these are very familiar-looking, but I'll have to wait for them to be identified,

751 is Nosferatu - Yes

755 is Bedtime for Bonzo - Yes! Finally saw it on DVD over the Christmas holidays

757 is Blow-Up - I've read quite a bit about it, and I know how it ends, but I've only ever seen segments of it at any one time, so no

758 is The Sting - yes

759 is Missing - I started it a number of years ago, I think on TCM, but it might have been some other source, but I went to bed before it was over, so no

760 might be The Whales of August, but I'm not entirely sure. I haven't seen it.

So, I've only seen three of these for sure. 752 looks like it stars a certain couple who got married in real life, and I could probably figure it out if I did enough research, but that seems like "cheating" to me. 753 looks like Jack Benny and an 11-year-old girl, but I have no idea.  754 is ... a time-traveling romance in which Fred C. Dobbs and Scarlett O'Hara got together? Ha ha, yeah have no idea bout that one, either.  756 looks like it could either be a Western or set in India. The shooters seem to have a comfortable, well-protected perch from which they can easily pick off whatever they're shooting at.

In 753, that’s James Dunn with Peggy Ann Garner, not Jack Benny, sewhite.

Well, if your guesses are correct, then I've actually seen a lot of these. I just struggle to identify films from one still sometimes.

I'm gonna dispute Baby Face. That looks like Robert Taylor to me, and he wasn't in that.

But I've seen A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I saw the Disney color Swiss Family Robinson on a revival release to theaters when I was a little kid (if this is that one, despite the B&W still, then I've seen it, and not the RKO version they buried). And I've seen Driving Miss Daisy. That still looks more like Bette Davis to me than Jessica Tandy, but I certainly could be wrong.

So, I may have seen as many as six.
