Imitation of Life (1959)

Douglas Sirk's best-known movie was a huge hit in its day, but was probably not considered the masterpiece it is today. On the surface it's a very effective weepie, telling the story of two single mothers and their troubled, troublesome daughters. Lana Turner plays Lora Meredith, an actress with big dreams of Broadway stardom. She claims to have morals, but she also lies to get work. One day at the beach, she loses her daughter Susie. An unemployed black maid, Annie Johnson (Juanita Moore), finds her. Annie has a light-skinned daughter, Sarah Jane, and Lora assumes that Annie is merely her nanny, rather than her mother. Annie offers her services for next to nothing, and Lora eventually agrees. read more...

How Green Was My Valley (1941)

The tough, but highly sentimental John Ford was one of the few great cinema artists who was appreciated in his time. He even won the third of his four Best Director Oscars for this great, corny look at a Welsh mining town and the family who tries to endure hard times. Young Roddy McDowall plays the youngest family member (who narrates the tale) and he gives an amazingly intuitive performance. Walter Pidgeon, Donald Crisp and Maureen O'Hara round out the cast. The DVD includes a fine featurette from "AMC Backstory," a full-length commentary track by Ford biographer Joseph McBride and Actress Anna Lee Nathan, a still gallery and trailers. read more...
