Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

I didn't recognize Jeanette MacDonald. That would have helped. I've seen San Francisco multiple times. I've also seen Miracle in the Rain

I've also seen Doc Hollywood multiple times. I guess I've completely forgotten Bridget Fonda's role. I wanted to say that's what this still was, but her presence completely threw me and made me think it must be something else.

I have no memory of Open Range. Though I could identify those two actors, I was unaware they'd ever been in a movie together. I was just grabbing at straws  when I said Lonesome Dove, because I knew Costner wasn't in it.

Anyway, three movies I've actually seen but couldn't identify, which means I've seen five.

OPEN RANGE also features Annette Bening, a rare turn for her in a western.

1361 Tarzan the Ape Man? Yes, if it is.

1362 The Glass Key? Yes, if it is.

1364 The Mudlark. I think it's only aired on TCM once, and I happened to be watching, so yes.

1365 The King and I. Yes.

1366 Well, there's a knife, and there's water, so I'm going to guess Knife in the Water! I haven't seen it.

1367 Obviously Don Knotts, but I don't know the title, and I haven't seen it.

1368 The Hospital. Yes. I saw this on TCM quite a few years ago. It's been placed on, then removed from the schedule more than once in recent years, I think. Not sure if there's a rights issue.

1369 Fatal Attraction. I think I've caught all the best-known scenes from my years of having multiple movie channels long ago, but I don't know that I've ever sat down and watched the whole thing from start to finish. So, I'm going to call it a no.

1363 and 1370 I have no idea.

So, only three I'm absolutely sure I've seen.

 1362, 1363,1364, 1368 and especially 1369 I like really, really well.

1367 is kind of cute but I have to be in the right mood for me to want to watch it.

1365 is watchable not something I would give any awards to.

Haven't seen 1361. The rest are merely okay.

Would you say all Don Knotts films are "cute"...? :)

I would say most of them are.

As for Knotts himself, I can take him or leave him, but I did find he was quite funny in 1367.

1367 has Leslie Nielsen in a supporting role. But unlike his later parodies, Nielsen is playing a "straight man" to Knotts. So if someone watches this movie thinking Nielsen is going to be funny, they'll be disappointed.

My introduction to Leslie Nielsen was long before he did any of the NAKED GUN movies or even before I saw the original AIRPLANE.

I first saw him as a really nasty bad guy in CREEPSHOW (1982), a movie with 5 horror tales, and in the third story he plays a rich psychopath who disposes of his unfaithful wife and her lover (CHEERS' Ted Danson) by burying them up to their necks on the beach and leaving them to drown.  That was my favorite tale in that one, not least of which because Nielsen made such a delicious villain in that one.

He also plays an unsavory character in NUTS (1987).

In an episode from The Streets of San Francisco he appears as an alcoholic cop who tries to cover up a killing that happened as a result of his being drunk.

Leslie Nielsen was an interesting actor who played a variety of roles.

Oh yes, he was also quite a baddie in NUTS too.

Don't really care for Barbra Streisand but NUTS is one film where I think she did a great acting job in, I'm surprised she wasn't nominated for Best Actress that year.

I have to wait to see the list of films; however from The Hospital to Fatal Attraction (the sublime to the semi-ridiculous).  That is a personal opinion.

The one picture looks like Queen Victoria (Irene Dunne?).  Saw The Reluctant Astronaut, also  1361 and 1362 (Laird Krieger (sp?) - very sad story), and The King and I (cried when Yul died).

Once again, I'm stumped on all the older ones. I don't remember a Marx Brothers where they played football, so I probably haven't seen it. That Bette Davis one might be Old Acquaintance, but I'm unsure of the identity of the woman on the right.

1377 is Billy Jack. No.

1378 is Shoot to Kill. Yes.

1379 Looks like Jessica Lange and Michelle Pfeiffer, but if they made a movie together, I don't remember what it was.

1380 is The Passion of the Christ. Yes.

So, only three I'm sure I've seen.

I haven't seen 1371, 1377 or 1380.

1372 is pretty funny. 1374 and 1379 I like really well.

1378 is a pretty decent action flick (helped especially by Sidney Poitier).  1375 and 1376 are watchable.

Interesting that the older films are the more unfamiliar ones for you.

1378 was a bit of a comeback for Poitier as an actor, since he had been focusing on directing in the late 70s and early 80s. 

1379 is a modern-day reworking of Shakespeare's King Lear, placed in a rural setting.

1371 No. 

1375 Don't think so.

I'm not sure if I saw A Thousand Acres (I read the book and think I saw the film on TV).  It is another adaptation of King Lear (favorite Shakespeare play)

1380 - Will not watch an overtly anti-Semitic film made by an anti-Semite

PRISONER OF WAR is an MGM film that TCM airs occasionally. The photo I chose has Steve Forrest and Oskar Homolka. But the lead star in the movie is actually Ronald Reagan.

I've still got plenty of catching up to do on earlier movies. Until I was in my '30s, I'd only a seen a tiny handful of films that were made before 1970, and 90 per cent of those were Disney re-releases probably. I didn't start watching TCM until 2001, I think. Because TCM's constant reairing of the same movies, my exposure is still relatively limited. Your lists have been showing me just how many films between 1925 and 1965 I have yet to see.

On the other hand, thanks to 25 years of going to Blockbuster and others and about a ten-year-run where I had literally like 20 movie channels on my super-deluxe cable I later dropped, I feel like I've seen virtually every movie released between 1970 and 2000. I'm much more likely to identify those.
