I have my review for King of the Wild Horses almost ready to go but I am felled by the neverending cold.
There will be a slight delay with the review posting tomorrow. In the meantime, why not read:
The Penalty (1920): I dissect this macabre Lon Chaney crime picture and examine how the film improves on the original novel.
The Forty-First (1927): A dark Soviet romance about a Red Army sniper who falls for a czarist officer. I also cover the sound remake.
The Great White Silence (1925): An extremely deep dive into Captain Scott’s doomed expedition and the motion picture made from real footage from same.
The Bargain (1914): William S. Hart’s first feature and a rootin’ tootin’ western comedy. A delightful romp.
The Devil’s Needle (1916): Norma Talmadge plays a model and junkie in this social picture. If you don’t “get” Talmadge, do check this one out.
Thanks for reading!
