92. The Three Weird Sisters



Director: Daniel Birt
1948

Gothic melodrama with Dylan Thomas on scripting duties. In a small Welsh village, three once powerful sisters live in a run-down mansion. The coal mine that once made them a wealthy family suffers a cave in that not only damages cottages in the village, but also the mansion. The younger brother of the family, Owen, is a wealthy businessman, and the sisters turn to him to pay for the necessary repairs, only to find he has no concern for them or the village. Soon Owen's secretary begins to suspect that the sisters will go to any length to get their hands on the money. Often classed as a borderline horror title, partly for the crumbling gothic mansion, but also for the sisters, each with their own disability and inhabiting their mansions like ghosts of a past time. And that's actually what the film is about. The brother representing the intrusion of the modern world into the past, with the symbolism of the mansion making this feel like a little like Welsh Poe.

So after saying you'd prefer to a 1200 list because you'd have seen more, two in a row you haven't seen.

I'm still considering the 1200 list, but if I continue with this in the meantime, I'll at least have some reviews written.

Do it. DO IT NOW!

Sullivan's Travels is the only one I've seen so far but it was so long ago that I can barely remember anything about it other than Veronica Lake. She's yummy.

Sullivan's Travels is great, but I do prefer The Lady Eve, The Palm Beach Story and Hail the Conquering Hero.

Matty's mum flashbacks.

I would start it, I just need to cut it down to the number Matty chose. Unless I just do it without picking an actual number.

I'm positive I've not seen that and it sounds fascinating. Must try and find it - I can only see a short 10 mins on youtube.

91. Meet Me in St. Louis



Director: Vincente Minnelli
1944

One of the best musicals from the golden age, Meet Me in St. Louis takes place over a year in the life of the Smith family. The Smiths, parents Alonzo and Anna (Leon Ames and Mary Astory) and their children (most notably, Judy Garland and Margaret O'Brien) have a happy life in St. Louis, but their cosy world is thrown into upheaval when Alonzo announces that they're all going to be moving to New York. The fluffy exterior hides a lot of darkness, the film may be set at the beginning of the century, but it was made at the heart of WWII, and the theme of leaving behind all the innocence you knew for an uncertain new life struck a chord with many who had seen their loved ones leave for war, as did the film's finest moment, Judy Garland's shiver-inducing rendition of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, a song that spoke of hope of a brighter tomorrow, when all our troubles will be out of sight.

Meet Me in St. Louis is another one of those movies I know I've seen but I don't remember actually watching it.
