This week, I take a look at the unusual – and unusually neglected – film “The Fallen Idol” by the team that brought us “The Third Man” just a year later. It’s intense, frustrating and a wonderful film.

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!”

Wow, I’ve been getting a lot of good movies, lately! “Nightmare Alley” is a . . . Circus Noir(?) from 1947 starring Tyrone Power and Joan Blondell and, man, is it something! It’s got crime and death and drinking and tarot cards and . . . what more do you want?!

This Twittersode, I’m taking a quick look at “The Best Years of Our Lives” from 1946. Wyler really upped his game with this one.

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!

See Guillermo del Toro’s original tweet here!
