You'll have to let me know what you think. There are very, very few of their films for Hal Roach that aren't utterly brilliant.

The Naked Spur (1953)

Fantastic western with Jimmy Stewart hunting down Robert Ryan then travelling back with him and a bunch of companions to justice as Ryan tries to undermine the group to his advantage. It was tense and suspenseful and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

8/10

It's offbeat, rather bizarre, and Welles' fake Irish accent is hilarious. But like you, I love it. The climax in the mirror maze is riveting.

Yep, the accent startled me a bit at first but, strangely, it somehow fits with the general atmosphere of the film. Some really great performances and dialogue and, as you say, the finale is gripping.

I finally did it... I got around to watching Safety Last! Yippe! So good and must watch some more Lloyd films as I now regret being a virgin to his work. I would say that I prefer (going from Safety Last!) his style to The Marx Brothers, definitely.


4/5 for Safety Last!

Yay grats for finally seeing it, told you you'd like it! :)

I started watching Night of The Hunter (1955) but am shattered tonight so will finish it tomorrow; gotta love Robert Mitchum as a baddie - was there any better back in the day?

I know Saltire, it was brill! I just finished watching F.W. Murnau's "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans" and oh boy, what a powerful film! Heartbreakingly beautiful in every way and supposedly the best Silent ever made. I was dubious about this "fact" of course before watching it but it is definitely one of, in my opinion.

Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (Murnau, 1927) 5/5

A couple of years ago I posted lists of my top 20 films of each decade, beginning with the silent era. Sunrise was # 1 in my top 20 silents, and although there would probably be a few changes if I were to redo the list today, simply because I've caught up with more since then, Sunrise would still be at the top. I agree - heatbreakingly beautiful sums it up perfectly.

You know, I'm actually considering watching it again tonight (if I have the time). It really leaves a lasting impression on you.

Yep, Sunrise is a beautiful film. I would recommend A Cottage On Dartmoor to anyone who likes Sunrise.

Ok I have to see this Sunrise film. Have heard so much about it from Ninj.

We could watch it tomorrow if you like. Trust me, you'll wonder why you never did it sooner!

EDT: I say "tomorrow" but I technically mean tonight....

And I would certainly back up your recommendation. It's also in my list of top 20 silent films.

Night of The Hunter (1955)

Absolutely awful; the religion was too much even though I did like the way in which it was shot - I heard good stuff about it as well, maybe it just wasn't for me or was over my head then lol!!

2/10 (for the artful shooting only)

Brilliantly chilling and psychological classic with some inventive direction from Robert Wise. 4.5/5

Totally concur with Spaldy and also with what siegfried said on another thread. It is genuinely scary.

After Ninj's overwhelmingly positive review a little awhile ago, and after reading this list Click me!, I thought I should give F.W. Murnau's 1927 classic, Sunrise: A Song Of Two People a viewing. And I am so glad I did because it's not only the best silent film I've ever seen, it's one of the best films I've ever seen. Heart-breaking and warming in equal measures it also (Mild spoilers) has one of the most beautiful and generally warming endings ever in cinema and it made me very happy

5/5!!!


Also, is it just me or is Janet Gaynor extremely cute..

So glad you enjoyed it scarface, I was contemplating watching it again tonight but it's a bit late/ too early now to do so. It definitely lingers with you and I have been thinking of it ever since my first viewing. Truly delightful.

I've bookmarked your link also as there is some proper classics on that list that I must check out or forever hang me head!

I already want to watch it again It really is just an absolutely beautiful film! It's a top list isn't it! I intend to watch all the films on it eventually. I also realised I'd criminally never seen The Gold Rush so I'm going to watch it tonight hopefully

Definitely an impressive list. I'm ashamed that there's quite a few on there that I haven't seen. Enjoy The Gold Rush (I really love that one) and we can compare notes later on the others.

Happy viewing!
