Wow, the last theme month of 2017 is here and it’s a good one! I asked my wonderful patrons to vote and the winning theme turned out to be… shh! I could tell you but then I’d have to kill you.
Okay, just kidding. I’ll tell you and nobody will get killed other than the casts of a couple of films. We’re covering spy films of the silent era and I am happy to say that there will be a 50/50 split with male and female directors… and spies.
In the meantime, here are some of the spy pictures I have already covered on this site. Be sure to share your favorites as well!
Duh. Fritz Lang’s stylish feature is still influencing espionage pictures.
A spy story from the American Revolution, all about Nathan Hale.
The Napoleonic swashbuckler leaves the spy stuff to Phyllis Haver, a very good move as it turns out.
This Colombian picture deals with the shenanigans involved in the leadup to building the Panama Canal.
Pola Negri plays a hotel chambermaid who helps deal with spies and pervy generals. She gets just a bit sick of the latter.
