The Bells of St. Mary's (1945)

Thanks to re-releases and some kind of immense, inherent audience draw (as well as a kind of Christmas vibe), Leo McCarey's The Bells of St. Mary's remains among the top 50 highest-grossing films of all time, in the adjusted-for-inflation list. It's the sequel to McCarey's Oscar-winning Going My Way (1944), and it too was nominated for a bunch of Oscars -- eight, to be exact -- though it won only one, for Best Sound. It played up the sex appeal of the beautiful Ingrid Bergman, even though she's never seen out of her nun's habit. Bring Crosby was nominated again for Best Actor for reprising his role as Father O'Malley, even though it looks as if he's confused throughout most of the movie. read more...

Pocketful of Miracles (1961)

Frank Capra's final feature film was a remake of his own Lady for a Day (1933), based on a story by Damon Runyon, though this one runs nearly a full hour longer, filling out the story and slowing the pace. Capra himself reportedly hated it, but it's not bad. It's set at Christmastime, and though there are few overt references to the holiday, there are decorations and a general background atmosphere that makes it kind of a holiday classic in its own right. read more...

50/50 (2011)

In the old days, people used to cry at movies about doomed relationships. Now they cry at other things, among them cancer movies. Just about every year, we get at least one or two cancer movies. Just last week there was Tom Tykwer's 3, and before that, One Day, Beginners, In a Better World, Biutiful, My Sister's Keeper, Elegy, and more. Sometimes cancer is a subplot, designed to give the movie some emotional and heft, and other times it's the main subject. But rarely has anyone tried to stuff cancer into a comedy-drama, and one somehow remains prickly and funny through every moment of its running time. read more...

The Kid (1921)

Charlie Chaplin's first feature film, running six reels (about 50 minutes), was instantly hailed as a masterpiece. It still is, though Chaplin's longer works The Gold Rush, City Lights and Modern Times tend to overshadow it today. The very simple plot has the Little Tramp rescuing a baby on a doorstep (deciding to keep it to avoid attracting the attention of a nosy cop) and raising him for five years. At that point, officials attempt to take the child away. read more...

Limelight (1952)

To casual viewers, Charles Chaplin's Limelight may appear overly sentimental and not very funny, but a deeper look proves it to be one of the comedian's most revelatory works. It's Chaplin's most personal and painful film, and the only film to show his onscreen death. It's an incredibly brave achievement. read more...
