"CALIFORNIA" (1947) Review

I am a history nut. And one of my preferito historical periods that I Amore to study is the Antebellum Era of the United States. One of my preferito topics from this period is the California oro Rush. I also Amore movies. But despite this love, I have been constantly disappointed da Hollywood's inability to create a first-rate movie about oro Rush.

I may have to take back my commento about Hollywood's inability to produce a first-rate movie o Televisione production about the oro Rush. There were at least three that managed to impress me. Unfortunately, the latest film...

RELEASE OF OLD BBC PRODUCTIONS

Since the release of the 1975 miniseries "NORTH AND SOUTH" in 2013, I have found myself wondering about other BBC productions from the 1960s and 1970s.

I recently discovered that the 1996 miniseries, "THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL" was the secondo adaptation of Anne Brontë's novel. The first was a 1968 miniseries that starred Janet Munro, Bryan Marshall and Corin Redgrave. I also discovered that the 1999 miniseries, "WIVES AND DAUGHTERS", was not the first adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel. The BBC aired an earlier adaptation in 1971 that starred Zhivila Roche.

Does anyone know how to contact the BBC? I would like them to consider releasing these two productions in the near future.
"THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO" (1934) Review

I have seen only two versions of Alexandre Dumas père's 1845 novel, "The Count of Monte Cristo" in my past - the 1975 Televisione version with Richard Chamberlain and the 2002 Disney film with James Cavielzel. While Leggere a good number of articoli about the movie versions of the novel, I came across numerous praises for the 1934 adaptation that starred Robert Donat. And since I happened to like Dumas' story so much, I decided to see how much I would like this older version.

Set between the last months of the Napoleonic Wars and the 1830s, "THE COUNT...

"GONE WITH THE WIND" (1939) Review

Several years ago, I had come across an articolo that provided a lista of old classics that the autore felt might be overrated. One of those Film turned out to be the 1939 Oscar winning film, "GONE WITH THE WIND". Not only did the autore accuse the movie of being both racist and sexist, he also claimed that the movie had not aged very well over the past seven decades.

Did I agree with the author? Well, let me put it this way. I would say that "GONE WITH THE WIND" has managed to withstand the tests of time . . . to a certain extent. As the autore had pointed...

"THE PRISONER OF ZENDA" (1937) Review

I realize that many film critics and fan would agree with my suspicion that the 1930s saw a great deal of action films released to theaters. In fact, I believe there were as high number of actions films released back then as they are now. Among the type of action films that flourished during that era were swashbucklers.

One of the most famous Hollywood swashbucklers released during the 1930s was "THE PRISONER OF ZENDA", producer David O. Selznick's 1937 adaptation of Anthony Hope's 1894 novel. This tale of middle European political intrigue and identity...

Ross is deeply disappointed da ELizabeth’s decision to go on with the marriage and he tries to forget her with other women and of course a lot of drinking. I did like the scene with the sex worker, where she seems to be a little bit in Amore with Ross. She was such a nice lady and so sweet especially when she was advicing Ross to find a woman to Amore and care, although that would mean she would lose him, because that is the type of man he is! link
Andrei, as usual, is weary of life. This guy seriously he was born disatisfied with life and sad. Well I guess it isn’t really strange with that crazy, patriarchal, selfish father and that annoying sister of his. However when he meets Natasha at the Rostov family home it’s like a fresh breath of life and obviously he fells in Amore with her. It’s absolutely natural that he feels drawn to her, since Natasha is so charming, pretty and full of life.

Lieutenant Berg, who is set to marry Vera Rostov, discusses the domanda of her dowry with the Count and he is so much in Amore with her that...
