I just started watching "The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry"recently. It looks interesting, but I haven't finished it yet.

"Pal Joey" was tailor-made for Sinatra, but Gene Kelly didn't think so because he had introduced the role on Broadway and was very bitter when he didn't get the movie part.

*(TB-- You always have such interesting and diverse choices for each decades.)

I've seen Sunrise, and I half-suspected what this was. I don't know why I didn't go ahead and guess that.

Ditto Pal Joey.  How did I not identify Rita Hayworth?

And I rented Even Cowgirls Get the Blues from Blockbuster when I was in college, when I briefly thought it was important that I see all of Gus Van Zandt's movies. 

So, I've seen four, though I was pretty poor at identifying them.

Thank you! I try to ensure a bit of variety (and diversity).

I remember not liking the Cowgirls movie when I first watched it, though I think I would probably have more appreciation for it now. I just felt it wasn't as good as MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO.

1792 is Here Comes Mr. Jordan. Yes.

1795 might be Love Me or Leave Me. Not entirely sure that's Doris Day, though. I haven't seen it.

1798 is Greystoke: the Legend of Tarzan Lord of the Apes. Yes.

1799 is also Tarzan. Not sure if the title had more words, but I also saw it.

1800 Is this Love, Actually? A much ballyhooed movie that I've only seen parts of.

Only three I'm sure I've seen. I can't identify the others.

That's Doris Day in the photo with James Cagney.

1800 is LOVE ACTUALLY. And I have to admit I've never seen it. There are a lot of positive comments about it online.

SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU WANT TO GUESS YOURSELF.

 

1801 Scaramouche (1923)
1802 The Black Cat (1934)
1803 Back Street (1941)
1804 Here Come The Co-Eds (1945)
1805 Scaramouche (1952)
1806. The Wild and The Innocent (1959)
1807. The Whisperers (1967)
1808. Conduct Unbecoming (1975)
1809 Escape From New York (1981)
1810 Space Jam (1996)

I wasn't sure about 1801 and when I saw 1805 I thought maybe you put both versions there on purpose.
1801 is an educated guess.

If I am right, then I have seen all ten.


I could pretty easily guess the others. 
1803 - Why did TCM put the later versions of Back Street out on burned disc and never the original? 
If you say it is because the condition of the 1932 version is in bad c shape you would be wrong.
When I was at Capitolfest  in 2017 a vendor sold me a burned copy of the restored version of 32 Back Street.
He said Universal let him have a copy and told him resale was OK because after they restored it 
they decided to never do anything with it after all.

1802 is definitely Black Cat, and along with 1810, it's probably one of only two that I could have identified without reading your post. Well, maybe 1809 if I'd thought about it hard enough.

I've seen The Black CatThe WhisperersEscape from New York and Space Jam, so I've seen four.

You're right about 1801. Incidentally Lewis Stone appears in both versions, that's how long he was a contract player at MGM! In the original silent film, he plays the role that Mel Ferrer did in the 1952 Technicolor remake.

Re: BACK STREET...I prefer the 1941 version, since I think it has the strongest leading man and the production values are superb. I don't care for Susan Hayward's overwrought theatrics in the '61 offering. I did watch the original precode starring Irene Dunne & John Boles, since someone had uploaded it on YouTube for awhile, but it felt a bit uneven in spots. Again, I think the one with Boyer & Sullavan is best.

L.B. Mayer was a funny duck. It seems that people he identified with - older white male actors - had long and good careers at MGM. Lewis Stone is one example and Lionel Barrymore was another. Even after Barrymore became permanently disabled in the late 1930s  he worked at MGM  into the 1950s. That is not to say these two actors were not talented, but Mayer just ripped to shreds the careers of other actors, often for no reason.

Another one Mayer liked a lot was Walter Pidgeon, whose career at the studio lasted from 1937 to 1956. It probably would have continued if Mayer hadn't been ousted. Mayer and Pidgeon were both from Saint John in New Brunswick Canada.

Hmm. Colorful titles. That might help me make some guesses ...

1811 might be The Woman in Green, unless there's another Sherlock Holmes color title I'm not remembering. I've seen it, if it is.

1817 is Purple Rain. As big a Prince a fan as I am, you think I would have seen it. But only bits and pieces, so I will call it a no.

1818 is White Men Can't Jump. Yes.

1819 I saw part of this movie in my multi-movie channel days, but I can't think of the title.

1820 Wow, is that Hillary Swank? I'm unused to seeing her in so sexy an outfit. I don't know the movie, though.

I will leave it to others with deeper film knowledge to inform me of the rest. As it stands, there's only one I'm absolutely sure I've seen all the way through, but that might change.

What's wrong with it, in your opinion?

It takes too long to get to the mystery, and then the mystery is convoluted to the point it should be renamed "The Big Snore".  But without the chemistry of Bogie and Bacall.

The Clouded Yellow is one film my parents talked about but I've never seen (and I like Jean Simmons)

The last film was dreadful -  better TV movie with Lucie A. Never did solve the case (in real life).

I've seen about half the rest.

I didn't realize the Black Dahlia film had so many naysayers. :) 

THE CLOUDED YELLOW is excellent. I believe it may be viewed on YouTube.
