Singin' in the Rain (1952)

The Oscars are known for "catching up" to filmmakers and actors who have been overlooked or forgotten. Sometimes they have been ahead of the game, too -- but even then, they were a little off the mark. read more...

The Lady Eve (1941)

Preston Sturges' The Lady Eve is an all-time classic with sharp-witted con-woman Jean Harrington (Barbara Stanwyck) giving the slightly baffled snake scientist Charles Pike (Henry Fonda) a run for his money. As usual with Sturges, you wonder how he was able to get away with so much innuendo during Hollywood's Hayes Code period. The Criterion Collection's remastered DVD stands up among their best (it contains lots of extras: a commentary track, an introduction by Peter Bogdanovich, the Lux radio play, Edith Head's costume designs, and more). read more...

His Girl Friday (1940)

Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur's play The Front Page had been filmed once before, in 1931 by Lewis Milestone, and again later, in 1974 by Billy Wilder. But after Charles Lederer adapted it for Howard Hawks as His Girl Friday (1940), there was no need to do anything more to it. Lederer and Hawks had the brilliant idea of turning the character of Hildy Johnson into a woman, who leaves her newspaper job to marry a man. Thus there was now an added struggle of the romantic entanglement between Hildy and Walter Burns, the editor of the newspaper -- a love triangle that wasn't there before. (A 1988 comedy called Switching Channels also used this version of the play.) read more...

The Awful Truth (1937)

Director Leo McCarey, who was the subject of a recent New York retrospective, was something of a forerunner to Woody Allen. Starting in two-reel silent films, McCarey cranked out dozens of slapstick shorts with Laurel and Hardy and other comedians -- none of which would indicate any particular signature style. As the sound era came in, and especially during the pre-code era, McCarey translated his talents to a group of scrappy feature film comedies like Six of a Kind, Belle of the Nineties with Mae West, Ruggles of Red Gap, The Milky Way with Harold Lloyd and especially the great Marx Brothers movie Duck Soup. read more...

The Gold Rush (1925)

"I don't need interesting camera angles," Charlie Chaplin once said, "I am interesting." He was right; Chaplin's artistry always springs from the figure at the center of the frame rather than the arrangement of objects within the frame. Chaplin's "Little Tramp" character, with twirling cane and little moustache -- and his too-tight coat and hat and too-loose shoes and pants -- was always an outsider longing to get in. He spent every second of every film looking for the Dream: a good meal, a nice place to stay, and people to love him. read more...
