Have you seen these 10 classic films..?

I made a few good guesses, but it doesn't change that I've only actually seen one of these.

Part of the goal is to become familiar with films that might have eluded you before.

I certainly haven't seen all these films. But I try to add new ones to my viewing experience.

2081 is Of Human Bondage. Yes.

2085 is Sabrina. Just watched it on Christmas night! But I've seen it many times before that.

2087 It's the one where George Hamilton plays Hank Williams and is probably named for one of Williams' songs. Your Cheating Heart? I  haven't seen it.

2089 is Dead Poets Society. Yes.

2090. It's the remake of Sabrina. I watched the first hour once, but I haven't seen the whole thing.

Unsure about the others. I've seen at least three.

Yes, the Hank Williams bio is called YOUR CHEATIN' HEART. 

I enjoyed the SABRINA remake. I thought Harrison Ford gave one of his better performances and Greg Kinnear was funny/good.

HEARTLAND (1979) is a very good character-driven neo-western. Highly recommend it.

Conchata Farrell made a name for herself later in television comedy (Hearts Afire and Two and a Half Men) but she's a revelation in HEARTLAND, successfully hitting all the right notes in a challenging dramatic role.

2081--

TB, Thanks for including the Leslie Howard film "5 and 10" with Marion Davies.

 I didn't know about this film and since he's one of my all-time favorite actors I will definitely look into it.

2084--

I recently saw "The Killer That Stalked New York". Unfortunately it has a timely message. Lola Albright was a standout in this movie.

2085--

 I grew up watching "Sabrina", it's a real nice Cinderella Story for a young girl's fancy.

 I wonder how you would compare it to the remake?

FIVE AND TEN is an MGM picture and airs on TCM every so often. To be honest, it's an early talkie and has sections of endless dialogue. But Howard and Davies do have chemistry and the actors assembled to play Davies' family are a hoot. It's worth watching at least once.

THE KILLER THAT STALKED NEW YORK is a thought-provoking noir and as you say, timely. It was Evelyn Keyes' last picture for her home studio Columbia before she started freelancing.

People complain about remakes. But I think the SABRINA remake holds up well next to the original. One thing I love about it is they have character actress Nancy Marchand as the mother. She nearly steals the show.

I recognize a number of the actors, but I'm not really placing almost any of the movies.

2097 is One Potato, Two Potato, which I saw on TCM several years ago.

2098 sure looks like Walter Matthau in Kotch, which I haven't seen. I didn't know he wielded a gun in that movie.

2100 is My Dinner with Andre. No.

Looks like maybe I've just seen one.

  • 2091: My Best Girl : No
  • 2092: Female: Partially
  • 2093: Music for Millions: Yes
  • 2094: Diplomatic Courier: Yes (decades ago)
  • 2095:??
  • 2096: The Trials of Oscar Wilde: Yes
  • 2097: One Potato Two Potato: Yes
  • 2098: Charlie Varrick: No
  • 2099: ??
  • 2100: My Dinner with Andre: Yes

I saw One Potato Two Potato at the TCM Film Festival a few years back.  Was unfamiliar with it prior to that, and it must have been a daring proposition for all involved at the time.  My mom always told the story that her brother dated Barbara Barrie when they were in high school.   Could be; they grew up in the same town.

Your guesses are always fun to read.

ONE POTATO TWO POTATO is a fine movie. 

I love DIPLOMATIC COURIER, and to my knowledge TCM has never aired it.

2111 is Manhattan Melodrama. Can't believe it, but I've never seen it.

2114 I'll take a wild guess and say Green for Danger, which is a movie I caught on TCM quite a few years ago and really enjoyed. But that's just a shot in the dark. The more I think about it, probably not. Almost looks like Robert Mitchum on the right. I'll just have to wait and learn.

2119 is Watership Down. No.

2120 is Fletch. Much loved by my generation, but I've only seen bits and pieces of it and ...  meh.

So, I may not have seen any of these all the way through.

I know this is the place for me. Loved Heartland. I crossed paths, briefly, with Rip Torn some years ago up in the NW hills of CT. 

Conchata Farrell, to me, was a poor man's Kathy Bates. While she enjoyed a solid career, I some how think she did not get the credit she deserved.

And...Rip Torn....what a stage name!
