Missing my favorite B&W film of old, The Third Man

The night scenes and the sewer scenes would be gorgeous still photographs, let alone they are motion pictures.

There are too many old B&W movies that I like, it would be hard to list them all.

My two favorites, right off the top of my head are “Dr. Strangelove” and “The Last Picture Show”.

Thanks for the link. I just started looking at movies again.

I realy liked The 39 Steps. A 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film.

I will list just a few.

“Sargent York”, “Dracula” the Bela Lugosi one. “Edge of the World” from the 1930s. “Red River”, Just about all the Hitchcock ones such as “Psycho”.

I bet there are over a hundred if I saw a list.

Love em both.

However just watched “Streetcar Named Desire” on TCM and forgot how over rated I found both the movie and the play.It didn’t translate well in the 70’s, 80’s or the 2013’s. I would hazard to guess that if there wasn’t the ubiquitous homosexual undertone found on almost all Tennessee Williams plays this would have opened and closed with nary a peep.

That is interesting because I would have also guessed “The Birds” was in B&W too.

How about “Rear Window”? In my mind I see it as B&W.

Ditto.

I watch over-the-air broadcasts of METV on my computer tuner. Perry Mason, The Rebel & The Rifleman.

Just watched 2 of the first episodes of the Rifleman. Michael Landon was in the 2nd episode. Directed by Sam Peckinpah. 1958. Before Bonanza. Good stuff

Also, saw Leonard Nimoy on a very old episode of The Rebel.

Not movies, but still, high quality B&W films...

Loved The Last Picture Show.

Dr. Strangelove - a CLASSIC

I liked “Last Picture Show” too. It had a lot of the atmosphere of the era. It was also the time period where I grew up.

There was one thing I noticed which McMurtry got wrong. He had the coaches constantly using profanity. I think the Florida Panhandle was very similar to the Texas Panhandle.

The coaches could make you bend over and then kick you and nobody minded but the parents would not have put up with profanity from a high school coach.

Now college was a different thing.

The movies on the link are public domain. So, Dr. Strangelove and The Third Man are out.

I would like to suggest a public domain B-movie that was unusually well done, and has, for my money, the nastiest (realistic) villainess I've seen. "Detour". Surprisingly good.

And gee, Ann Savage was such a pleasant leading-lady in little Columbia b-films. She goes over to PRC for “Detour” and becomes an all-out nightmare!

I remember showing “Detour” to a friend of mine in the early-1980s, and he was positively aghast at Savage and her character. Skin-crawling, disquieting. Nothing else remotely like it, from that era.

Thunder Road. Robert Mitchum just about totally did every thing about the film. He starred in it, wrote the theme song, directed it, and had his Son play his little Brother.

Another odd thing is a professional singer did the theme song in the movie but Mitchum sang a version which became a hit. Mitchum actually sounded better than the professional singer’s version.

Orson Wells was a master of Black & White. Touch of Evil, Third Man,The Stranger & of Citizen Kane are fantastic. His camera angles and the use of lighting to create sinister characters out of shadows gives me chills.

Champagne for Caesar is worth tracking down. Ronald Colman, Vincent price (hilariously so), Celeste Holm, Art Linkletter's only acting role, and even the voice of Mel Blanc.
