looking forward to your reviews so we can argue err i mean discuss, lol! did you get all the ones you wanted???
I did! This makes me happy in my happy place. LOL
Which movies are on the disc?
Let's see...I was able to grab "The Busher", "He Who Gets Slapped", "Flesh and the Devil", and hopefully "The Captain Hates the Sea" (this one might have gotten cut off); my friend's disc has "The Phantom of Paris", "Gentleman's Fate", "Way for a Sailor", "Desert Sands", and I think one more that I can't remember for the life of me.
Wow, I've never even heard of most of those. I have seen He Who Gets Slapped, Flesh and the Devil and Way for a Sailor. Flesh and the Devil is quite stunning - one of the very few movies where you can absolutely believe that the leading couple fell in love on the set. Garbo and Gilbert are absolutely sizzling together. He Who Gets Slapped is interesting, and Way for a Sailor is a fairly frisky pre-Code, although I always wondered why Leila Hyams didn't become a bigger star. She's very good in this, and utterly charming in Ruggles of Red Gap. She was in some fairly big films, but just never broke out. Too bad.Cristiane
I recorded them too. I'm back in my bad habit of recorded all pre-codes.He Who Gets Slapped is probably the best. It's even directed by Victor Sjöström, Ingmar Bergman's predecessor. Flesh And The Devil is visually amazing. I haven't seen the rest.
