Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

Once again, I'm having a harder time with most of the older ones.

1621 might be M, which I've seen.

1626 is The Incredible Shrinking Man. Yes.

1627 might be The Pawnbroker. I haven't seen it.

1629 Looks like Natalie Wood and Ryan O'Neal. I was unaware they ever made a movie together, so I don't know what it is. Of course, I could be wrong about one or the other (or both).

1630 is The Incredible Shrinking Woman. I remember watching maybe 20 minutes of it on HBO more than a quarter of a century ago, but I've never seen the whole thing.

So, only one I'm absolutely sure I've seen. I'll have to wait for the others to be identified.

Oh, yes, Crime and Punishment well, I was wrong about it being M, but I have seen it.

I've also seen Julia Misbehaves. Funny but I don't recognize Greer Garson at all in that pic.

Ah, Michael Caine, not Ryan O'Neal. Still not a movie I've heard of.

I've seen three.

Greer Garson plays the title character of JULIA MISBEHAVES and is in almost every scene. :) 

PEEPER is a film that has never aired on TCM, which is odd, since they're always doing Natalie Wood tributes. Besides a cameo in THE CANDIDATE she made two films in the 70s-- PEEPER and METEOR. TCM doesn't air METEOR either, and it was a big hit.

Yes, I'm aware Garson is the star of the film. It just doesn't look like her to me in that pic that's posted on here, hence I couldn't identify her.

Oh, I see. When you said pic, I thought you meant motion picture. LOL

1631 is Bill of Divorcement. Yes.

1632 is Tortilla Flat. I've seen part of it, but not the whole thing.

1636 is The Slender Thread. No.

1637 It's either Hanover Street, which I haven't seen, or Force 10 from Navarrone, which I have.

1639 is Candleshoe. Yes.

1640 I think it's Peggy Sue Got Married, which I've seen.

Ooh, bad call on my part. I was sure that was young Harrison Ford, not George Peppard. I need to put them in the Lookalikes thread. I haven't seen that one. I wanted to guess Salt of the Earth, which I haven't seen, but was reasonably sure this might be it. Looks like I've seen three.

THE BLUE MAX turns up sometimes on FXM Retro (formerly the Fox Movie Channel).

Waiting for the names.  I know I saw 1640.  I don't think Lauren Bacall got along that well with Streisand.  Cute movie and I like Jeff Bridges (and Ms. Bacall) -- Streisand is another actor/actress who was better when they first started out (and their egos were in check).

1631 is Come and Get It. Yes.

1632 is Tom, Dick and Harry. That middle name is probably going to be bleeped out by autocensor. Yes.

1635  is Operation Petticoat. Yes.

1636 is Gay Purr-ee. No.

1637 is The Green Berets. No.

1639 is Colors. I saw some of it in my multi-movie channel days, but I don't think I saw the whole thing.

1640 is The Mirror Has Two Faces. No.

I've seen at least three.

I think Bacall was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in this film.

As I recall, when Juliette Binoche won for Best Supporting Actress that year she took the stage and said she didn't prepare a speech because she thought Lauren Bacall was going to win.

That is what I remember too.

Incidentally COLORS  may currently be watched on YouTube.

And yesterday I found 1633 (THE FLAME) on YouTube. Highly recommended!

I grew up watching "Tom,Dick and Harry"-- I can remember how I was rooting for George Murphy because he was the tap dancer in the group.

I liked "Operation Petticoat",  but I never could understand all the acclamation for "Come & Get It". Although I admired Frances Farmer's performance.

And I always wanted to see "Gay Purr-ee-- an animated feature with two great singers, Judy Garland and Robert Goulet.

I think TOM DICK AND HARRY is my favorite Ginger Rogers comedy. The dream sequences are very imaginative.

SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU WANT TO GUESS YOURSELF

 

 

 

1651. Singing Fool (1928) - The film that actually started the silent to sound revolution, yet nobody has ever heard of it.

1652.  Cimarron (1931) - Probably one of the worst Best Picture winners and Richard Dix' worst performance. Only Best Picture Oscar ever won by RKO.

1653 Four Jills in a Jeep  

1654. Born To Kill (1947) - Lawrence Tierney, a dedicated method actor.

1655. Submarine Command??? (I'm guessing because that looks like William Bendix next to Holden)

1656. War and Peace (1956)

1657. Cimarron (1960)

1658. Darling Lili 

1659. Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

1660. Jumanji (1995)

 

I'm guessing in a couple of spots, but if I am correct then I've seen all of them.

Originally I was going to do THE FROGMEN (1951) for 1655 but I couldn't find any photos I liked. So I decided to switch it to SUBMARINE COMMAND which has a similar story and a decent cast.
