The True Adventures of Raoul Walsh (2019, Marilyn Ann Moss)
This 2019 documentary by Marilyn Ann Moss, based on her book “Raoul Walsh: The True Adventures of Hollywood’s Legendary Director,” provides an overview of Walsh’s career, from his work as an actor in silent cinema to the over two hundred films he directed, into the 1960s. It includes excerpts from Walsh’s memoir and interviews with filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich; actors Illeana Douglas, Jane Russell, and Jack Larson; media historian Norman Klein; and film critic Leonard Maltin.

Not my usual cup of tea but the doc may shed some light on what it meant to be an early Hollywood power broker. Also, Criterion is featuring 3 of Walsh's classic yarns - High Sierra, The Man I Love and They Drive By Night.

Two Women (1960, Vittorio De Sica)

In the Italy of WWII, a widow (Sophia Loren) and her lonely daughter seek for distance between them and the horrors of war. Great free versions on PLEX with no ads or subs and Freevee (formerly iMDBtv) with subs and ads.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994, Stephan Elliott)

Two drag performers and a transgender woman travel across the desert to perform their unique style of cabaret. Over 25 years old and a favorite of straight and LGBTQ audiences alike. Legit classic. Free on tubi.

Didn't realize that it got the Oscar for Best Costume Design in '94. That story is funny -

Wonderful remake of 1932's "Red Dust," with, amazingly, Clark Gable in the male lead in both. Plus, how wrong can you go with Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly, both in their prime, in the same movie.

  It's been awhile since I've watched it. Glad TCM is airing it again.
