Sergio Leone News / Frayling Speaking in Spain for 50th anniversary of GBU
« on: September 28, 2018, 12:41:34 AM »
I don't remember seeing this before; I don't think it was posted here. I just discovered it on YouTube: Frayling spoke in Spain last year, on the 50th anniversary of GBU, hosted by the Sad Hill Cultural Association.


it's over an hour long, but every line Frayling says in English is then translated into Spanish.

Enjoy!

Off-Topic Discussion / Sirocco (1951)

Sirocco (1951)

One previous post by Groggy

http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=7645.msg149758#msg149758

Sirocco - 5/10 - Humphrey Bogart is a gun-runner caught up in Syria’s nationalist uprisings against France during the '20s. Plays like a shoddy mixture of Casablanca, The Third Man and Battle of Algiers. Has little to say about revolutionary politics or imperialism, and the plot and characters are too thin for it to work as light entertainment. Bogart is overshadowed by Lee J. Cobb's unusually sensitive performance and the pretty Marta Toren.

—-

I disagree with Groggy; this movie is a 7.5/10. Definitely reminiscent of Casablanca. Battle of Algiers for the theme of French occupying a Muslim country. The Third Man mostly cuz Marta Toren is very reminscent of Valli! How could Groggy not realize that this movie, whose setting is possible due to the Sykes-Picot Agreement, is the sequel to Lawrence of Arabia?! (Ok, technically LofA is the “prequel” ... is there a word for the first movie to be released which is set later?)

Anyway, this Curtis Bernhardt-directed film is shot in a noir style.

Oh, forgot to mention: support performance by Zero Mostel!

cigar joe: The Strange Loves of Martha Ivers (1946) Director, Lewis Milestone with Barbara Stanwyck, Van Heflin, Lizabeth Scott, Kirk Douglas, A great noir with Lizabeth Scott as HOT as ever, on TCM just got finished. This is a great Van Heflin flick check it out.



http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=1822.msg144832#msg144832

titoli: The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946) This movie has two great scenes: that of Stanwick and Heflin on the hill and the final three-sided confrontation except...except that the way that one ends is all wrong: censorship-induced? I would have given it an 8\10 in spite of its taking a long time to get going: the Lizbeth Scott angle, though integrated in the script, it is secondary to the Douglas-Stanwick relationship which isn't well-developed and consequently makes the finale appear even more forced of what already is (or maybe I say this because I don't like Scott, who also seemed to me to be a poor man's Bacall, and I adore Stanwick, probably the best combination of looks and acting ability in Hollywood in the years before the emergence of Ava Gardner). And Douglas is absolutely miscast, though of course nobody when they hired him could predict the screen persona he would develop in the decades to be, as distant as could be from the character he plays (badly, of course) here. So it's 7\10. Anyway I would like somebody to explain the finale to me, eh CJ?

cigar joe replies: I'd have to watch it again
