Recommended Posts



Monday, June 12 at 8:00 p.m.

No other actor or actress rises above the

craft in the same way that Garbo does.








The Wind

Tuesday, June 13 at 4:30 a.m. (late Monday night)

(1928; directed by Victor Sjostrom)


A high watermark (if you?ll excuse the

pun) for both its star and director.









The Exterminating Angel

Thursday, June 15 at 10:00 p.m.

(1962; directed by Luis Bu?uel)


Another wonderfully complex Bu?uel film that?s

spun from a deceptively simple idea.








The 39 Steps

Friday, June 16 at 3:00 p.m.

You use one idea after another and eliminate

anything that interferes with the swift

pace -- quote from Alfred Hitchcock.








The Rules of the Game

Saturday, June 17 at 2:00 a.m. (late Friday night)

(1939; directed by Jean Renoir)


Voted the second best film of all time

(after Citizen Kane) in Sight and Sound?s

1972 International Critic?s Poll.








Grand Illusion

Saturday, June 17 at 4:00 a.m. (late Friday night)

(1937; directed by Jean Renoir)


If I had to save only one film in the world it

would be Grand Illusion -- quote from Orson Welles.

I loved seeing the photos with each recommendation!


I will be recording THE WIND tonight--I have been wanting to see this film for many years.


Also, I will be recording THE GRAND ILLUSION. I caught this film on tv a few years ago while channel surfing. I missed the beginning, but I watched it the rest of the way through and it was riveting. I look forward to seeing it again.

The Gold Rush

Monday, June 19 at 12:00 a.m. (late Sunday night)

(1925; directed by Charles Chaplin)


Chaplin considered The Gold Rush to be

?the picture I want to be remembered by.?








Mildred Pierce

Monday, June 19 at 8:00 p.m.

(1945; directed by Michael Curtiz)


A key strength is that it doesn?t

fit easily into a single genre.








The Palm Beach Story

Tuesday, June 20 at 6:30 p.m.

(1942; directed by Preston Sturges)


It has everything that makes a Sturges

comedy an undeniable delight.








Double Indemnity

Thursday, June 22 at 9:30 p.m.

(1944; directed by Billy Wilder)


Everything works together in

lockstep -- the script, the direction,

the acting, the lighting, everything.








She Wore a Yellow Ribbon

Saturday, June 24 at 12:00 p.m.

(1949; directed by John Ford)


A vast and composite illustration of

all the legends of the frontier

cavalryman -- quote from Bosley Crowther.








Black Narcissus

Saturday, June 24 at 8:00 p.m.

Sunday, June 25 at 6:00 p.m.

(1947; directed by Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger)


One of the most beautiful

films every made.
