Flashback to the 1944 thriller & mystery movie, "Gaslight," directed by George Cukor. Good choice for Halloween...& our current political moment, with the Gaslighter-in- Chief. The film stars Ingrid Bergman, Charles Boyer & Joseph Cotten. Angela Lansbury also appears here, at age 18. Based on a play, the film focuses on a woman whose husband manipulates their home environment so that she will go crazy -- hoping to have her hospitalized so he can steal the jewels belonging to her aunt ( he also murdered the aunt & then hid his identity from the niece -- it's complicated). The movie's title & plot are now the basis for the term "gaslighting" -- more on that in a moment. #gaslighting #gaslightmovie #noir #classicfilmstars #bnwfilms #classicmovies
Good season for watching dark comedy films. Here's a clip of Cary Grant in the classic, "Arsenic & Old Lace" (1944), which I watched on TV in the late 1950's or early 60's....& also read the play in one of my parents' American theatre anthologies. Directed by Frank Capra, the movie follows this character's discovery that that his aunts have begun to "help" lonely old bachelors by renting out rooms & then murdering their boarders. Thanks to @thesilverclassics ...for this post....#arsenicandoldlace #darkcomedies #darkcomedymovies #classicfilms #oldlace #classicfilmstars #carygrant #frankcapra #bnwfilms #1940s #1940smovies #arsenic #murder #lonelybachelors #aunts #americantheatre #deadbody #findingthebody #corpse #shocked #dilemma #crazyfamily #familyproblems

Rita was born Margarita Carmen Cansino 17th October 1918. In the early 1930s she changed her name to Rita Cansino before changing to Rita Hayworth, her mothers maiden name, in 1938. Slide 1 and 2: Rita Cansino in 1935's Dante's Inferno at about 17, one of her first movies. Slide 3: Rita Cansino 1938, just before the changed to Hayworth. Slide 5: A young Rita, still going by Margarita, performing in the Dancing Cansinos at 12.

Uma das minhas cenas favoritas do cinema.Impecável o cuidado de Orson Welles com a estética de seus filmes. "Matar você é matar a mim mesmo - é a mesma coisa - mas você sabe, eu estou muito cansado de nós dois." 🔫💎
Now playing in a basement near me....Dir: Alfred Hitchcock. Starring: Teresa Wright, Joseph Cotten, Macdonald Carey, Patricia Collinge. On to the next film in this great set! Another I’ve never seen, anyone out there have an opinion on it? It is supposedly Hitch’s favorite film. #shadowofadoubt #alfredhitchcock #nowwatching #movienight #blurayboxset #bluray #blurayaddict #bluraycollector #dvdcollector #moviecollector #bluraycollection #dvdcollection #moviecollection #movielover #moviebuff #classicmovies #classicmovie #cinephile #1943 #1940smovies #basementscreening
At the #loewsjerseytheatre again to see another #alfredhitchcock in #35mm #shadowofadoubt . Our first movie of the season and the organ is playing. #crimemovies #1940smovies #howitshouldbeseen @loewsjersey
To think that Welles improvised this iconic line on the spot...what a performer. It's bittersweet given it's harsh nature, but genius in its execution. But Welles was a genius, after all, and this right here is one of the greatest films ever made. #filmdialogue #film #filmmaking #thethirdman #orsonwelles #movies #1940smovies #Grahamgreene #acting #dialogue #harrylime #goldencinema #cinema #filmnoir #classiccinema #classicmovie #josephcotten #carolreed #vienna #movielines #actingmasterclass
"Papa!....Papa!" . - Bruno Ricci (Enzo Staiola) to his father Antonio (Lamberto Maggiorani) after Antonio is caught stealing a bicycle and being muscled towards the police station by the bicycle's owner and other bystanders, from the film "The Bicycle Thief" (1948) . Another great foreign film I first saw back in college, which is considered to be the best known film of Italian neorealism, "The Bicycle Thief" tells the story of.... . ....Fuck, I'm about to cry already....Goddamnit, I need a kleenex....Shit!....Alright look, that little boy breaks my heart everytime I see that moment and hear him in that innocent voice of his say, "Papa!....Papa!" Ahhh!!!! Stop it! I can't take it! If I were a woman and wore mascara, I'd look like the late Tammy Faye Bakker after watching this. Seriously, this film, the ending of "The Last Picture Show", "The Color Purple", or even the beginning of the animated film "Up" just turns me into a squonk (Look it up, y'all. Shout out to Steely Dan). I'm a grown man damn it! I'm not suppose to feel this way!....Am I? . Before that pivotal moment of the film happens, the story is pretty simple. A poor but proud father with a wife and two children to support named Antonio (Lamberto Maggiorani) finds a job posting advertising bills, and that job is threatened when the bicycle he uses for it, gets stolen (Jobs were very hard to come by in post war Italy). He, along with his son Bruno (Enzo Staiola) search all over Rome to find the bike and the thief. While running into dead ends, and with little help from the police or witnesses, Antonio steals an unattended bike out of desperation and gets caught, in which his son cries out for him. The look of disappointment in little Bruno eyes, the look of shame in Antonio, and the humanity the bike owner shows in letting Antonio go is very moving, as Antonio fights back tears, Bruno takes his hand and the two disappear into the large city crowd in the film's final image. God bless cinema, man....God bless cinema☺ #thebicyclethief #movie #film #cinema #1948 #1940smovies #foreignfilm #drama #italy #rome #italianneorealism #poor #workingclass #family #father #son #job #bicycle #stolen #moving #sad
