    They Were Expendable (1945)

    Anyone who makes a war movie these days should stop and watch John Ford's They Were Expendable as a prerequisite. At its core, it tells the story of how the Navy's then-new PT boats became a major part of WWII, but that's arguably the least interesting part. Ford shot the film at the tail end of the war, and it may have been the first film to capture the alternating thrills and horrors of combat. read more...

    The Stranger (1946)

    After making the financial flops Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons and losing his RKO contract, Orson Welles made The Stranger (1946) as a last-ditch attempt to prove that he could deliver a profitable Hollywood film as well as anyone. So this thriller starring Edward G. Robinson as a post-WWII Nazi hunter and Welles as a Nazi spy hiding out in an American small town comes across as strangely... normal. read more...

      The Gunfighter (1950)

      At some point, filmmakers decided to put a black tie on the Western genre, and make "important" films that could be considered for awards, rather than just entertaining audiences. (Never mind that many filmmakers, such as John Ford, were already making artistic masterpieces in the genre.) The Ox-Bow Incident, Shane, and High Noon are among these types of movies, as is Henry King's The Gunfighter. But, with an Oscar-nominated story by André De Toth — an unsung director of sturdy, brutal "B" movies — it has enough grit to make it seem like a model hybrid of respectable and genuine. read more...

        The Golden Coach (1952)

        Critics of the time considered Renoir's color films inferior to his black-and-whites, but that is not necessarily the case, as the full-color, English-language The Golden Coach is one of his greatest achievements. Though the film is a weird mix of light humor and weighty seriousness, it's the centerpiece performance by Anna Magnani that makes all the difference. She's a true force of nature, fighting off three different suitors from three walks of life while trying to make ends meet with her traveling theater show. read more...

        The Big Heat (1953)

        The Big Heat is generally recognized as one of Fritz Lang's strongest pictures from his American period. Glenn Ford plays a detective whose wife (Jocelyn Brando) is killed after he pokes his nose too far into a local gangster's business. Lee Marvin co-stars as a nasty thug in charge of funny business and Gloria Grahame all but steals the picture as his smart-aleck girlfriend. The most famous scene has Marvin pitching a pot of hot coffee into Grahame's face, but the most powerful scene shows Ford at home enjoying his family life for a good five minutes before an explosion ends his wife's life -- Lang at his cruelest. read more...
