METROPOLIS (1926)

Metropolis is a silent science fiction film directed by Fritz Lang and written by Lang and Thea von Harbou. Lang and von Harbou, who were married, wrote the screenplay in 1924, and the story was novelized by von Harbou in 1926. It is set in a futuristic urban dystopia and examines a common science fiction theme of the day: the social crisis between workers and owners in capitalism. The film stars Alfred Abel as the leader of the city, Gustav Frauhlich as his son, who tries to mediate between the elite caste and the workers, Brigitte Helm as both the pure-at-heart worker Maria and the debased robot version of her, and Rudolf Klein-Rogge as the mad scientist who created the robot.Metropolis was produced in Germany in the Babelsberg Studios by Universum Film A.G. (UFA) and released in 1927 during a stable period of the Weimar Republic. The most expensive film of its time, it cost approximately 7 million Reichsmark to make. The film was cut substantially after its German premiere, and there have been several efforts to restore it. Also, the American copyright lapsed in 1953, which eventually led to a proliferation of versions being released on video.

AVA GARDNER

(Ava Gardner c. 1950’s)

Ava Gardner was one of Hollywood’s great stars during the 1940s and ’50s, an Oscar-nominated leading lady who co-starred with Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster, and Humphrey Bogart, among others. But this riveting account of her storied life and career had to wait for publication until after her death, so concerned was Gardner with its frankness.  “I either write the book or sell the jewels,” Gardner told coauthor Peter Evans, “and I’m kinda sentimental about the jewels.” The legendary actress serves up plenty of gems in these pages, reflecting with delicious humor and cutting wit on a life that took her from an impoverished childhood in North Carolina to the heights of stardom. Tell-all stories abound, especially when Gardner holds forth on her three husbands: Mickey Rooney, a serial cheater so notorious that even his mother warned Gardner about him; bandleader Artie Shaw, whom Ava calls “a dominating son of a bitch…always putting me down”; and Frank Sinatra (“We were fighting all the time. Fighting and boozing. It was madness. But he was good in the feathers.”).  She has just as much to say about lovers, such as Howard Hughes (“Howard was in my life, on and off, for more than twenty years, but I never loved him.”) and George C. Scott (“I was scared to death of him.”) and would-be lover John Huston (“He had a great life. He lived like a king. God, I miss him.”)—all of whom get Gardner’s unflinchingly honest treatment.  “If I get into this stuff, oh, honey, have you got something coming,” Ava told Evans. Get ready for the most revealing Hollywood autobiography in decades.

THE BIG COMBO (1955)

(Dir. Joseph H. Lewis)

A prime example of the American film noir style that flourished during the 1940s and ’50s, The Big Combo is now highly regarded as a stylistic milestone for its innovative use of deep shadows and harsh, singular light sources to define its visual strategy. This look is largely credited to the rule-breaking brilliance of cinematographer John Alton, who turns a standard plot of the era into a richly atmospheric experiment in visual invention. Ignoring conventional approaches to lighting, Alton defines the screen in terms of blackness, often framing characters as silhouettes cast in ominous grays or thick, roiling fogs. Moving from clarity to abstraction with masterful grades in between, Alton’s trend-setting style has been celebrated by cinematographers since the film’s release in 1955.

DVD: THE FACE OF TH TWENTIETH CENTURY: BAUHAUS (ARTHAUS – ART AND DESIGN)

‘Let us create the new building of the future together; it will combine architecture, sculpture, and painting in a single form’. With this vision, Walter Gropius, in 1919, opened the Staatliche Bauhaus Weimar, which was to become one of the most influential schools of art, design and architecture from Dessau to Chicago. Artists such as Kandinsky, Itten, Feiniger, Klee, Moholy-Nagy and Schlemmer taught there and, together with directors Gropius and van der Rohe, led the Bauhaus to embody reform, experimentation and the avant-garde. Through artworks, archival records and interviews, this film delves into the exciting story of the school and its protagonists.

THE MUNSTERS

I love this series!!!

The Munsters is an American family television sitcom depicting the home life of a family of monsters. It stars Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster and Yvonne De Carlo as his wife, Lily Munster. The series was a satire of both traditional monster movies and popular family entertainment of the era, such as Leave It to Beaver. It ran concurrently with The Addams Family.  The idea of a family of comical monsters was first suggested to Universal Studios in the late 1940s by animator Bob Clampett, who wanted to do a series of cartoons. The project didn’t see development until the early 1960s, when a treatment or ‘format’ for a similar idea was submitted to Universal Studios by Rocky & Bullwinkle writers Allan Burns and Chris Hayward.

This format was later handed to writers Norm Liebman and Ed Haas, who wrote a pilot script, Love Thy Monster. For some time, there were executives who believed the series should be made as a cartoon and others who wanted to see it made using live-action. Finally, a presentation was filmed by MCA Television for CBS, using live-action.  The series aired at night once a week in black-and-white on the CBS Television Network from September 24, 1964 to May 12, 1966, for 70 episodes. It was broadcast weekly on BBC1 in the UK. It was canceled after ratings dropped to a low due to the premiere of ABC’s Batman, which was in full color.[citation needed] Though ratings were low during its initial two-year run, The Munsters grew in popularity during decades of syndication. This popularity warranted a spin-off series, as well as several films, including one with a theatrical release.

ALFRED HITCHCOCK

In a career that spanned sixty years, Alfred Hitchcock made more than fifty feature-length films and hosted his own television series, transforming the thriller genre in the twentieth century. Author Laurent Bouzereau puts this incredible canon into perspective, examining the master’s life thematically: his archetypal anti-heroes; his complicated female characters; his charming villains; and something Bouzereau calls “the Hitchcock touch” — those elements of film that are, quite simply, Hitchcockian.With a foreword by Hitchcock’s daughter, Patricia Hitchcock O’Connell, Hitchcock, Piece by Piece is packed with photographs from the family’s archive, many of which have never been published before, plus removable facsimile memorabilia such as letters, memos, and snapshots, which frame the story of the director’s life and work.

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971)

Stanley Kubrick’s striking visual interpretation of Anthony Burgess’s famous novel is a masterpiece. Malcolm McDowell delivers a clever, tongue-in-cheek performance as Alex, the leader of a quartet of droogs, a vicious group of young hoodlums who spend their nights stealing cars, fighting rival gangs, breaking into people’s homes, and raping women. While other directors would simply exploit the violent elements of such a film without subtext, Kubrick maintains Burgess’s dark, satirical social commentary. We watch Alex transform from a free-roaming miscreant into a convict used in a government experiment that attempts to reform criminals through an unorthodox new medical treatment. The catch, of course, is that this therapy may be nothing better than a quick cure-all for a society plagued by rampant crime. A Clockwork Orange works on many levels–visual, social, political, and sexual–and is one of the few films that hold up under repeated viewings. Kubrick not only presents colorfully arresting images, he also stylizes the film by utilizing classical music (and Wendy Carlos’s electronic classical work) to underscore the violent scenes, which even today are disturbing in their display of sheer nihilism. Ironically, many fans of the film have missed that point, sadly being entertained by its brutality rather than being repulsed by it.

EAMES MOVIE: THE ARCHITECT AND THE PAINTER (2011)

The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Ray Eames are widely regarded as America’s most important designers. Perhaps best remembered for their mid-century plywood and fiberglass furniture, the Eames Office also created a mindbending variety of other products, from splints for wounded military during World War II, to photography, interiors, multi-media exhibits, graphics, games, films and toys. But their personal lives and influence on significant events in American life – from the development of modernism, to the rise of the computer age – has been less widely understood. Narrated by James Franco, Eames: The Architect and the Painter is the first film since their death dedicated to these creative geniuses and their work.

BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID (1969)

(Robert Redford and Paul Newman in the epic 1969 western “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” — Image by © John Springer Collection)

Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for the “buddy film” with this smash hit set in the Old West. The Sundance Kid (Redford) is the frontier’s fastest gun. His sidekick, Butch Cassidy (Newman), is always dreaming up new ways to get rich fast. If only they could blow open a baggage car without also blowing up the money-filled safe inside… Or remember that Sundance can’t swim before they escape a posse by leaping off a cliff into rushing rapids… Times are changing in the west and life is getting tougher. So Butch and Sundance pack their guns, don new duds, and, with Sundance’s girlfriend (Katharine Ross), head down to Bolivia. Never mind that they don’t speak Spanish – they’ll manage somehow. A winner of four Academy Awards (including best screenplay and best song), here is a thoroughly enjoyable blend of fact and fancy done with true affection for a bygone era and featuring the two flashiest, friendliest funniest outlaws who ever called out “hands up!”
