Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

I've seen all of this list except 53.  Double Indemnity is one of my favorite films noir.  Stanwyck got an Oscar nod and MacMurray should have.  I read somewhere that Somebody Up There Likes Me was to be James Dean's next movie.  Also that Gregory Peck turned down High Noon because he thought his performance would be too similar to The Gunfighter (which is one of my favorite westerns).

I would rate DOUBLE INDEMNITY as the best noir of the 40s.

I think I would rate THE GUNFIGHTER as the best western of the 50s. How about you?

My favorite western is Shane.  But The Gunfighter is a close second.

What I like about THE GUNFIGHTER is the simplicity of the story, Peck's conflicted characterization, the excellent supporting cast and the cinematography.

You mean the black big band leader and saxophonist of the '30s-'50s, James?

Yep, have to agree with ya here. I don't think George Sanders pictured there looks like HIM at all either!

(...sorry, couldn't resist...you of course meant Louis Jourdan the French actor...there's a 'u' in his surname, and in this case it isn't superfluous) ;)

I'm having a harder time identifying most of these. 61 is probably Beau Geste, which I've seen. 65 is definitely The Heiress, which I've seen. I want to say 67 is Rosemary's Baby, which I've seen, although I don't know why the pic is in B&W. 68 has got to be Bloody Mama, which I have not seen, but maybe someday. 69 looks like Bette Midler, but I don't know which movie ... Scenes from a MallFirst Wives' ClubRuthless People? Not sure. And of course 70 is Mrs. Doubtfire, which I've seen.

So, it's possible I've seen five of these movies, depending on how accurate my guesses are.

Some of the production stills I find are in black-and-white...though as we know, a film like ROSEMARY'S BABY was made in color.

I've seen Dark Command, but I've never watched any of the Maisie movies.

The Maisie movies are fun...especially if you enjoy Ann Sothern's brand of shtick.

DARK COMMAND is a strong effort, one of Republic's best "A" films from the 40s. Directed by Raoul Walsh. Great cast...as you know...including Claire Trevor and John Wayne (reunited after STAGECOACH) and Roy Rogers in a more serious part, getting the chance to really act.

THE HEIRESS is definitely my favorite out of the bunch, RUTHLESS and RUN FOR COVER are cool to watch, RUTHLESS PEOPLE a passable time killer (though I am not much of a Bette Midler fan), and MRS. DOUBTFIRE.....well let's just say I didn't get caught up in the craze over the film.

A nice print of RUTHLESS is currently on YouTube.

To be fair it's been a while since I've seen Letter from an Unknown Woman, and was trying to remember who was in it.
