Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

I have seen The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, The Killers ('46), High Noon, Richard III, Waterloo, Skyjacked, Airplane!, and Manhattan Murder Mystery.

The Miracle of Morgan's Creek is one of my favorite movies. The Killers and High Noon are excellent movies; Manhattan Murder Mystery is a fun movie after a long day.

I had seen The Miracle of Morgan's Creek and Richard III, so overall I'd seen six of the movies in the 860s.

871 is The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari - yes

872 looks like Clark Gable to me, but if it's Warner Baxter, then it's 42nd Street, which I've seen

873 might be Sudden Fear? which finally aired on TCM a year or two ago, and I saw it

874 is Julius Caesar - yes

875 Ha ha ha is probably Hot Spell - no

876 is To Kill a Mockingbird - yes

877 is Charro! (not the singer) - no

I feel like I should know 878, but I'm not placing it

879 might be Hopscotch. I think Walter Matthau and Glenda Jackson may have made more than one movie together. I'm pretty sure I misidentified another pairing of theirs on a previous list from this thread. Anyway, I haven't seen any of their pairings.

880  is Four Weddings and a Funeral - yes

So, there are four I've definitely seen. I'll have to wait for the others to be identified.

Edit: I had to alter my description of Charo. I guess that expression she says could also be considered a vulgar reference to female anatomy, and the autocensor didn't like it.

Seen all except 871 and 875.

876 is definitely a classic, and Gregory Peck more than earned his Oscar.

874 is quite watchable, even if it is weird to see Brando in this kind of film. Still did a good job though.

Think 873 might be POSSESSED though. I really like that one as well.

879 is either HOPSCOTCH or HOUSE CALLS....hard to tell and my memory isn't all that sharp. Did see HOUSE CALLS but it's been awhile.

880.....eh, not a big Hugh Grant fan.

It's Hitchcock's Frenzy.

I have seen all of them, except Hot Spell. I started watching that and could not take more than about 10 minutes.

I've never seen Hopscotch.

It was an early Criterion release, along with two of Ronald Neame's other films. It's very well made.

Someone mentioned Jackson & Matthau's previous collaboration. HOUSE CALLS (1978) was #468.

The only one I haven't seen is Charro!. I've only seen Elvis Presley in Viva Las Vegas.

(A charro in that outfit?)

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and 42nd Street are among my favorites.

Frenzy is an excellent movie.  Barry Foster gives a chilling performance, and the scenes with Alec McCowen and Vivian Merchant are very funny.

I liked Matthau and Jackson in House Calls a lot better.

Incidentally, after we reach #1000 in twelve days, I will provide the entire list. And if each person wants, they can go over it and tell us how many out of 1000 they've seen. Sound good?

881 is Phantom of the Opera - no

882 I think is Golden Boy - yes

883 is Mr. Skeffington - yes

884 is The Bachelor & the Bobby-Soxer - yes

885 is Diabolique? - no

887 is Tommy - yes

888 is An Officer & a Gentleman - no

889 is The Addams Family - yes

So, I've seen a least four, maybe five. I'm unsure about 886 or 890.

In anticipation of all 1000 films being revisited in the near future, I went back and looked at the first 100 to gauge my percentages. I'd seen 57 of the first 100. One of them I had not seen at the time it was first posted here in November. That was Peyton Place. But I've since watched it during 31 Days of Oscar, so I'm now counting it. When all is said and done, I suspect my total number of films seen will be between 500 and 600. There was no list where I saw fewer than two but also no list where I'd seen more than eight (so far), and almost all of them were in the 4-7 range.

PEYTON PLACE is airing again on TCM, on March 8th.

Seen all of them.

892 and 893 are my favorites here. 895 and 896 I can watch on occasion.

897 is well made, but not one I can watch all that often because of the subject matter. 898 I'm not too big on, and I don't go out of my watch 900 whenever it comes on.

891 Unless Claudette Colbert was in a version of The Crucible that I don't know about, i don't know what this one is. I will take a stab and say Drums Along the Mohawk, which I have seen, but I was thinking that one was set a little more recent than Puritan times. Anyway, not sure.

892 is The Lady Eve - yes

893 is The Ox-Bow Incident - yes

894 Not a clue

895 is, I think, The Vikings. I haven't seen it.

896 is Ship of Fools, Vivien Leigh's last movie, I think - yes

897 In Cold Blood? - no

898 is Fiddler on the Roof - yes

899 looks like it could be a Harry Potter movie! But t's probably Au Revoir Les Enfants, which I've seen

900 is You've Got Mail - yes

So, there are five I'm absolutely sure I've seen and possibly two more. I'll have to wait for them to be identified.
