Have you seen these 10 classic films..?

Circus World was a good pick for 60's John Wayne, because it is so hard to find. It is on youtube but I don't think there's a credible source for physical media for this film. I know I don't have it in my collection on DVD or Blu. 

Thanks. Indeed, I saw that CIRCUS WORLD was on YouTube yesterday. Was it never released on home video? I believe it's a Paramount picture. 

I like the casting in it-- which includes Hayworth, Claudia Cardinale and Richard Conte. One good thing about Duke is that while there was the John Wayne Stock Company (inherited from John Ford) he also enjoyed working with new people if the script could accommodate it.

I've never found it on DVD or Blu by a credible company. There are some DVDs being sold on Amazon by a no name company, and most reviews say the quality is bad but if you are a completist it is the only option available.

After my previous post, I went to the film's wiki page. I learned that the movie was a co-production for Paramount and the Rank Organisation. Perhaps it has had home video releases in Europe through Rank...?

The wiki page indicates it did have a Blu-ray release in the U.K.

It was not a success financially at the box office when it premiered, but I can see where it might have gained cult status in Europe. It feels more like a European picture than an American one. Duke was trying something different with this. Not every experiment works for established stars.

1681 I don't know my Chaplin films as well as I should, but since there's a kid, I will say The Kid. I haven't seen it.

Then a lot of films I don't know.

1686 is Wild Strawberries. Yes

1689 I don't know, but look at that sweet Roger Staubach jersey! Now I want to see whatever this movie is.

1690 is Of Mice and Men. No.

Only one I'm sure I've seen.

1681  - The Kid

1682 - Another Language

1683  - Swamp Water

1684 - Alias A Gentleman

1685 - Female on the Beach

1686 - Wild Strawberries

1687 - The Deadly Companions

1688  The Last Movie (1971)

1689 - The Last Married Couple in America

1690 -  Of Mice and Men (1992)

I saw them all. I remember 1688  just because I saw it when it first came out. It was a very weird movie. Kind of like "The Shooting". Everybody was trying to imitate Easy Rider into the early 1970s.

Hopper was given a budget and the greenlight to do THE LAST MOVIE, based on the success of EASY RIDER. But he filmed it in Peru and it was in many respects quite different from his first film. He wouldn't direct another Hollywood-financed picture until a decade later.

SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU WANT TO GUESS YOURSELF

 

1691. Spitfire 
1692. Caesar and Cleopatra (1945)
1693. Bride For Sale (1949)
1694. Grounds For Marriage (1951)
1695. The Horse Soldiers (1959)
1696. Light in the Piazza (1962)
1697. Cat From Outer Space (1978)
1698. The Morning After (1986)
1699. A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries
1700 Lara Croft - Tomb Raider (2001) 

Guessing on 1700  based on memory. I saw them all, but I kind of just endured Tomb Raider back when we took my younger stepkids to see it.  That and The Water Boy, Clueless (which was actually pretty good), Beavis and Butthead Do America, etc. I actually enjoyed Spongebob Squarepants.

I took some guesses before scrolling down. I was able to guess Spitfire, Caesar and Cleopatra, Light in the Piazza, Cat from Outer Space and Lara Croft - Tomb Raider.

Out of these, I've only seen Caesar and Cleopatra, Light in the Piazza and Lara Croft - Tomb Raider. So, three.

I still have never seen THE MORNING AFTER and I like Sidney Lumet as a director very much.

I'm a fan of LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA.

BRIDE FOR SALE was a pleasant surprise...very good...and as it turns out, one of 1949's box office champs. Pity that TCM doesn't ever air it.

I saw SOLDIER'S DAUGHTER at an art house in West Los Angeles. It was the only theater around that showed Merchant-Ivory flicks. Not as good as the duo's more celebrated films but fine nonetheless. Barbara Hershey and Leelee Sobieski give particularly noteworthy performances.

1692 is a great showcase for Vivien Leigh's talent.  Also, Shaw never grows old.  I think the version I've seen on TCM was colorized or filmed in color.  I've seen some of the films, but never heard of The Cat From Outer Space.

THE CAT FROM OUTER SPACE is a Disney live action flick from the late 70s with Sandy Duncan and Ken Berry.

Yes, the Vivien Leigh-Claude Rains picture is in Technicolor. (Though the publicity still I found is in b&w.)

I agree with your view re: Shaw.

I've seen about half.  In 1701 (all 3 Barrymores),it is Lionel who plays Rasputin.  1706 is very scary.  I used to confuse Rod Taylor with  Robert Taylor (because of similar names not looks).

Do you mean 1706 is more of a horror film than a science fiction film? If that's what you meant, yeah I'd agree.

My favorite one in this batch is MASK, a title I had always remembered but never really appreciated. I think they're all great -- Cher, Eric Stoltz, Sam Elliott and a very young Laura Dern. (Also, looking at the cast list I notice Estelle Getty's in it, and I forgot she played the grandma.) The story's heartwarming but a real tearjerker at the end.

There was a trend in 80s cinema to focus on stories where oddballs or unusual characters were the main draw. MASK has that. And MASK gives us a look at a lower rung of the economic system which makes it stand out more.

SPOILER WARNING IF YOU WANT TO GUESS YOURSELF

 

 

1701. Rasputin and the Empress (1932)
1702.  Life of Emile Zola (1937) 
1703. I  Dood It(1943) 
1704. Fallen Angel (1945) 
1705.  Wages of Fear(1953)
1706. The Time Machine (1960) 
1707. Another Man Another Chance (1978) 
1708. Mask  (1985) 
1709.  The American President (1995) 
1710. Mystic River (2003) 

I've seen them all or I couldn't begin to guess 1707. I'm still not entirely sure. I just recognize the horseback billiards. If I hadn't just watched Wages of Fear during a recent binge of my Criterion Sale buys I wouldn't have guessed that one either.  1701 is a famous publicity still. I think it was the only time all three Barrymores were in the same film.

You're doing a great job each day. I'm very impressed!

Got here very late today. I think I would have been able to identify 1701, 1702, 1706, 1708 and 1709.

I've seen Rasputin and the Empress, The Life of Emile Zola, I Dood It, The Time Machine and Mystic River, so five.

I've been visiting relatives, not as much time to check out the board. I see there have been some formatting changes that I'm initially not too crazy about. I'm surprised no one else had posted yet. I'm not going to make too much of my crack at first guess, because I can't identify very many of these.

1714 is Keys of the Kingdom. Yes.

1717 is Carousel. While I did see it in an incredibly rare attendance of a live theater performance (for me), I've only seen bits and pieces of the film version, so I will say no.

1719 is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Yes.

1720 is Murphy's Romance. No.

So, only two I'm sure I've seen, depending on what the others are.
