This is the tale of a young woman who abandons her fiancé, and runs off with a circus performer. Things do not end well. The movie was heavily censored when originally shown in the US due to its erotic content. It is notable for the natural acting style of Asta Nielsen, a method unseen at the time in American cinema. There are many missing and degraded frames due to deterioration of the nitrate-based film used in making the picture. Stars: Asta Nielsen, Poul Reumert, Hans Neergaard, Robert...

In this first film version of William Shakespeare's classic pastoral comedy, Sir Laurence Olivier stars as Orlando while Elisabeth Bergner is Rosalind, his secret admirer who disguises herself as a boy in order to stay near to him. Nearly all of the actors involved had performed the work on stage previously, adding to the stellar overall performance. A particular highlight is Olivier's magnificent delivery of the famous "All the world's a stage..." monologue.

This film falls firmly in the So Bad You'll Love It. After a plane takes off for London, a note is found in the airport saying that some people are going to be killed. And it is not long after that, that someone is killed. The captain (Robert Stack) tries to keep the passengers calm while the people on the ground do background checks on everyone and they learn that some of the passengers have history with one another. But it seems that there's a lot more going on.

Her possible motive? She wanted to escape the world of seedy nightclubs and dangerous mobsters - including her former gang boss lover, Phil Carida (Paul Lukas) - but Rendon turned out to be a womanizing scoundrel.

FILM IN 2 PARTS!!!! The 130 minutes version left of a film supposedly 6 hours long in its primary form. The most expensive production of that time, they say. (Director Stroheim, $700,000 producer Carl Laemmle, $1,300,000). Monte Carlo was entirely recreated on Hollywood backlot. Impressive indeed! more info on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0013140/

Based on the true story of Lord Mountbatten's destroyer, the film unfolds in flashback as survivors cling to a dinghy, and interweaves the history of their ship with the onshore lives of her crew. Hope someone uploads a better copy! Noel Coward produced, wrote the screenplay, composed the score, and starred as Captain Edward Kinross. Coward also officially codirected, though he handed the reigns to David Lean (his directorial debut). Also stars: John Mills, Bernard Miles, Celia Johnson, Kay...

As Julie prepares to leave her husband Roger, she begins to play through a stack of recordings, each of which reminds her of events in their lives together. One of them is the song that was playing when she and Roger first met in a music store. Other songs remind her of their courtship, their marriage, their desire for a child, and the joys and sorrows that they have shared. A flood of memories comes back to her as she ponders their present problems and how they arose.
