Thanks Filmlover, for posting the beautiful poster art from all those great movies. It has been rough trying to watch all or bits and pieces of all the movies. Thankfully, I was off work and gave me a chance to enjoy them. Not getting much done but they are all worth seeing again.

I agree, it was really special to have all those films shown in a row. The quality of these films is pretty impressive but I can't quite put my finger on it. Can we start calling it the "Korda Touch"?

 

Thankfully, I had seen most of these before, so catching bits & pieces in between family activities was ok. But I wisely recorded the gorgeous Thief Of Bagdad for later viewing.

 

When I later checked my recorder to see if it worked ok, I was astounded by the gorgeous imagery/sets/costumes. We'll be saving this one for "family night" viewing together.

 

Thanks, TCM. This day made up for your New Years scheduling blunder.

Korda and his brothers were from Hungary, and here is a biographical article with some embedded youtube of some of his films published on an English language website from Budapest:

A number of the vieos have been withdrawn over time, but you can still se some of his less often seen films, like *Sanders Of The River (1935), Conquest Of the Air (1936) and Q Planes (1939)*.
