@glitterbag,
I missed so many movies. I am trying to make up for it now.

@edgarblythe,
Last night I watched "Love is a many Splendid Thing" (TCM) it was rated 4 stars I think, but I don't think it aged very well. It was a bit of a snooze, but I've never been fond of the tragic romance tale" If I was going to watch a Bill Holden Film I'd watch Sunset Boulevard.....I doubt if a 20 year old would grasp the period, but I love it. Gloria Swanson is remarkable. (ok, it's a little cornball, but at least it's entertaining cornball). When I was very young, my grandparents and their friends would mention silent film stars when joshing their friends. It drove me a little nuts and I started looking up the silent movie people and gradually it expanded to larger than life personalities between 1880 to early 40's. Anyhow, that's my unofficial hobby, can't pass up a book on Alice Roosevelt, Sarah Bernhardt and of course bio's on James Adams, and our other founding fathers (yes I know, they were around way before 1880)

@izzythepush,
Oh, yeah. I remember when cars had those big steering wheels.

@roger,
Do you remember the ones with the big steering wheel and the metal ring inside that was the horn ???? I hated those horns, you could be making a turn and accidentally honk the damn horn.

@glitterbag,
Yes, but at least the ignition switch was on the dash instead of in the steering column. It was so much easier to hotwire a car back then.

You know, like if you lost your key, or something.

I watched Sunset Boulevard all the way to the end for the first time the other day. I didn't realize before that the lead character was telling the story although already dead. There were a number of such films from the era, such as DOA and Broderick Crawford in The Last Posse, in which the lead character lived long enough to tell the story before expiring.

Tried to score a copy from the NYPL as Edgar Wright openly admits that this film was one of the greatest influences not only for Baby Driver but his entire career.

Nevertheless, the library had its only DVD copy stolen or lost.

This was an answer on Pointless tonight, and although it's not o movie, it's still a pretty good chase.



As is this.

All the chases in the Americans are good, automotive or otherwise.

Gone in 60 Seconds

The original 1974 movie, not the 2000 remake.

Now THAT was a proper car chase.
