OK, then.

Saw the following:

52,56,57,59, 60, 65, 67, 69, 70. Not one of my better weekends. Beau Geste is still waiting at home. Did see Portrait in Black on late night going into Friday. It was good.

Glad you had the chance to watch PORTRAIT IN BLACK and that you enjoyed it.

73 Citizen Kane, yes

74 There's a Laurel & Hardy where they both work as servants and Stan dresses like a woman that I've seen, but I don't remember the name, and I don't know if this is it. May have been a gag that they did more than once!

75 Sunset Blvd, yes

78 Moonraker, yes

79 Amadaeus, yes

80 I'm guessing Pocahantas but haven't seen it

The others I have  no idea

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

 

Among "A" noirs, Double Indemnity has a slight edge over Laura as my favorite of the 40s.  But many film historians insist the French were referring to "B" crime dramas/thrillers/detective stories when they coined the term "film noir." So among the "B" noirs, my favorite is The Narrow Margin.  I've always been impressed with movies that have at least one solid scene that takes place on a train, and with this one the entire movie takes place on a train.

Check out the Transitional Noir The Incident (1967), it takes place almost entirely on a subway train. Lots of subway shots

Another Neo Noir  Warm Nights on a Slow Moving Train (1987) is about a convent teacher who moonlights as a "railroad lady" on an overnight Australian cross country passenger train. Again lots of rail footage.

Doesn't the first sequence take place inside an apartment building? But yeah, at least 85% of the movie occurs on the train.

I watched In Old Chicago in what I believe was its one and only airing ever on TCM, but I'm unfamiliar with that Laurel & Hardy title, so I believe I've only seen five of the 10 films between 71-80.

As for the new list:

84 is All about Eve - Yes, seen it

87 is Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - Yes

88 is The Godfather - Yes

89 is The Color Purple - Yes

90 is Pretty Woman - I guess technically no; it's not a movie I've ever sat down and watched from beginning to end, though I've seen bits and pieces of it over the years, typically on commercial television, where I would watch until the next commercial break started and change the channel.

So, possibly I've only seen four of these movies. The others I can't place. I definitely want to know what this movie is with Edna May Oliver listening attentively to a penguin!

81. Penquin Pool Murder 

82. It's A Date - Kay Francis, Deanna Durbin and Walter Pidgeon

83. The Window- Bobby Driscoll

85. Merrill's Marauders ( I think) - Jeff Chandler- or Away All Boats  ( changed my mind I think it's this one, looking more closely at the photo I think that's George Nader with Jeff

86. Peyton Place - Lana Turner and Diane Varsi

these are the ones you wrote you couldn't place, hope that helps
