Have you seen these 10 classic films..?


Recommended Posts

Oh my God, do I need a distraction from all the poisionous dialogue on General Discussion message boards. Trump-fueled hatred of everyone who's not old, white, heterosexual and male has had its sway over way too many people on here, IMO. Time to play a fun game.

As usual, I can't identify any of the early ones.

2568 is Children of the Corn? No, I haven't seen it.

2569 is Demolition Man.  No.

2570 is Nurse Betty. Yes!

So, possibly I've only seen one of these, although when the older films are identified, it will probably turn out I've seen one of more of them but just couldn't identify from the still alone. We shall see.

I'll post the cheat sheet this afternoon.

I still haven't seen NURSE BETTY so you're one up on me! :)

2564--Private Hell 36

This is a solid police detective noir that I saw a couple of years ago. But I picked it to watch because Ida Lupino and her second husband, Collier Young wrote it. But Ida doesn't direct, Don Siegel is the director.

Keeping it All in the family Ida co-stars with her third husband and current one at this time, Howard Duff. And the baby you see in the scene with Howard is their child Bridget.

Also co-starring are Steve Cochran and Dorothy Malone.

2563--"Under Capricorn" is simply an awful Hitchcock film that I saw years ago, but I've liked nearly all the other films that he made in the 40s and 50s.

2 & 4, I pretty sure, and 8, 9 10. Of the back ten, I'd need a cheat sheet for most, but definitely 14 & 20.

 

Just realized this is not a new post after I noted the first 20. lol Can't delete, so I'm explaining. I guess I have to look throught the previous 93 pages.

The only one I'm sure of is 2574, which is Gigi, which I"ve seen. Many of the others look familiar to me, but I'm not placing them.

I've never seen LONGTIME COMPANION. And TCM's never aired it.

QThe only one I'm sure of is 2578- A Midsummer's Sex Comedy 

I started to say 2571 was East of Eden but I knew the lady and older gent didn't look right and on closer inspection, that sure ain't James Dean! 😂

2572 looks like a very young Donald O'Connor but so young that the still doesn't seem old enough for when it would have needed to be filmed. I'll have to do some investigatin' on this one. I'm intrigued!

2579 looks tantalizingly familiar but I can't place. 

 

2580 looks like one of the Michael Douglas and/or Joe Eszterhas type thrillers from the early '80s to mid '90s. 

 

Excellent film choices Top!🤓

2574--One of my all-time favorite musicals, actually filmed in Paris, "Gigi", 1958.

2575--A fine underrated drama putting singer Dean Martin opposite two great actresses, Wendy Hiller and Geraldine Fitzgerald, but Dino more than holds his own, 

"Toys in the Attic", 1963.

THE GAL WHO TOOK THE WEST and FROM THE MIXED-UP FILES OF MRS. BASIL E. FRANKWEILER are the only ones from this bunch I haven't seen.

A PERFECT MURDER was actually a decent retelling of DIAL M FOR MURDER, adding a few new touches to the story. 

DARLING, it's easy to see why Julie Christie won the Oscar for it, she was terrific in it.

I saw A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S SEX COMEDY too many times that I cared for, once was enough. Not the biggest Woody Allen film, but my cousin David is. When we were young whenever we went over there, he always had it on when it was on cable.

2585--"Knock on Any Door" Humphrey Bogart's take on juvenile delinquency. I didn't watch the whole movie.

2588--"The Naked Edge"--A thriller that gained notoriety as Gary Cooper's last movie.

2589--"Five Easy Pieces"--My favorite college movie starring Jack Nicholson and Karen Black. It has everybody's favorite scene--something about holding a chicken.

2590--"The Elephant Man"--It starred Anthony Hopkins. It was a sad film but very well done.

There was a "sequel" eleven years later, when Columbia made LET NO MAN WRITE MY EPITAPH. In the second film, James Darren plays the troubled son of John Derek's character from the first film.

2589 is a classic in my book. 2590 is also an excellent film.

The rest I can't place right now.

TCM usually airs THE ELEPHANT MAN during Oscar month.

I will post the cheat sheet this afternoon.

I took a guess on the first one, even though I've never seen it, and was correct. Beyond that, I could only identify the last two, which I've also seen. Oh, and I' ve seen Niagra, although I couldn't identify it. So, I've seen three of these.

THREE FOR BEDROOM C was Gloria Swanson's abysmal follow-up to SUNSET BLVD.

I guess she was in the mood to make a comedy, but she certainly could have picked a better script.
