Ollie and I take a moment to talk about Guillermo del Toro’s list of 17 unproduced, yet finished, screenplays!
Look, I’m not qualified to discuss Orson Welles! I don’t have a degree in . . . Wellesian Film History! I don’t get what’s going on in his head! But, a deal’s a deal. So, here’s “The Lady From Shanghai!”
I’m here with a new Twittersode, this one about 1942’s propagandastic film “Mrs. Miniver!” It’s got an agenda, and that agenda is DRAMA! I mean, it’s clearly a piece of pro-war propaganda, but it’s also really good!
This week, Phil is taking a quick peek at Jean Vigo’s 1934 masterpiece, “L’Atalante.” It was his greatest film. It was his lastest film.

This Twittersode, I look at “La Chienne” from 1931. It’s not fun, but it’s really really good.
Guillermo del Toro’s original Tweet is here.
Slotting in nicely bertween “Greed” and “Frankenstein” it’s Buster Keaton’s “The General!” It’s also only me talking about it! It’s also only 15-minutes long!
Here is the link to Guillermo del Toro’s twitter film recommendations
Ollie doesn’t care about the Oscars, so this one is really short.
