I've seen about half.  1717, 1714, and 1720 are definite yes.  1719 is a No and will never see.

I get the feeling you dislike the horror genre, Judith! :)

Having a hard time with most of the old ones, as usual.

1725 I think is Bigger Than Life, which I've seen.

1729 is Miller's Crossing, which I've seen.

1730 is The Joy Luck Club. No.

Only one I'm absolutely sure I've seen. I will have to wait for the others to be identified.

Actually, I like some horror films.  Texas Chainsaw and Night of the Living Dead make me literally sick (although the original movie makes a statement relevant to today re: what happens to the only "survivor" at the end of the film).  Preferred Zombies that were part of Hoodoo or Voodoo culture.  Some of the Vincent Price Horror films are very good.  Carnival of Souls is creepy but good.  Two of my favorite Horror Films are The Haunting (original) and The Innocents (based on Turn of the Screw).  The horror is psychological.

As for new list, 1729 and 1730 I've seen.  Pretty sure I've seen 1722.

Yeah, I prefer psychological horror dramas too. Not so much into slasher flicks, though for some reason, BLACK CHRISTMAS is one of my favorites. Probably because it combines psycho drama with a bit of mystery surrounding who's committing the murders.

I was correct about Bigger Than Life. I've also seen State Fair and Lady Be Good, though I couldn't identify them. So I've seen four.

BIGGER THAN LIFE has such a great performance by James Mason.

It's been awhile since I've seen MILLER'S CROSSING.

I love THE OUTFIT.

I was traveling today. Totally missed out on this. I think I would have only been able to identify 1736. 1739 and 1740, though some of the others probably should have been obvious to me.

Honestly, I think Summertime is the only one I've seen all the way through, so I'll have to say I've just seen one. I've seen parts of Anna and the King of Siam and Camelot.

I forgot to mention on the previous list that I'd seen some of The Lost World, though not enough to say I'd actually "seen" the movie.

1735 I would have had trouble with, although I have seen "Saddle Tramp". Joel McCrea  in a western could be a bunch of films. 

1739 - I would have guessed it although I have not seen the film all the way through. 

The rest I have seen. 

1740 - It's funny that I was talking to somebody about "What About Bob?" earlier this week. He was mentioning he once worked in a mental institution and that was one film that they would let the patients see. Even though it is about mental illness it is a completely light and stress free film. 

1731 - George Arliss got Warner Bros. to sign Bette Davis. She was on her way out of Hollywood after a three film deal with Universal that did not work out.  Universal let her go and kept Sidney Fox. No wonder they went bankrupt. 

1738 - Watermelon Man - I thought I'd never see this one again until it turned up on TCM as part of an African Americans in film festival. 

I haven't played this game in a couple of days because I am rushing to finish up some work before my end of month report. Maybe I'll take time out and play tomorrow.

Nice story about the Dreyfuss-Murray flick.

Since McCrea was in so many westerns, I try not to choose photos where it's just him on a horse. He didn't always have the same costars so I try to include him with a leading lady or the other bit players. Same with Randolph Scott westerns.

THE MAN WHO PLAYED GOD was remade by Warners in 1955 as SINCERELY YOURS with Liberace and Joanne Dru. As good as Arliss is, I think the story works better with Liberace because he was an ace pianist and the scenes where he performs are great fun.

Or forward in time with:

Big Fat Liar 

Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

So, yeah, I get your theme here. When I first looked the pictures I didn't get the connection. Then I started writing down titles and - Oh yeah!.  It's funny how my brain tried to make connections with the content of the images.

Yes, today's theme is "Big" movies.

We already covered THE BIG PARADE. It was #1031. We also did MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING-- it was #150.

We haven't done THE BIG TRAIL (1930). 

We did THE BIG CLOCK (1948). It was #1443. 

THE BIG STREET (1942) is coming up on a future list.

Ha, ha, ha, I'd already identified several of these movies but still couldn't identify the theme! I was also looking for some connection beyond the titles. I don't think I was really awake yet. I went back to bed for an hour. I could only identify 1741, 1748, 1749 and 1750. And those are also the ones I've seen: The Big Sleep, The Big Red One, Big and The Big Lewbowski. So, four.

Well ... 1760 is Conan the Barbarian. That's the only one I'm absolutely sure about (unless it's the sequel!) I'm struggling with all of the others. 1751 might be Wings. I don't remember if there was a drag scene in that or not, it's been so long since I've seen it. 1756 might be The Sun Shines Bright, John Ford's partial remake of Judge Priest, which I watched on YouTube about a year ago. I'm just going to have to wait for the others to be identified.
