Film Inquiries


(John Welles) #1

Second time lucky, ay? :wink:

Is there a non-Spaghetti Western movie that you would like to find out more about or have you foregotten the name of a movie you saw along time ago? Ask about it here!

Okay, I’ll start the ball rolling. I read on a website that a movie called “At Long Last Love” never got released on VHS or DVD. Is this true, and if it is, is there any way of seeing the film now?

Sounds difficult!

It's the Peter Bogdanovic Musical with Burt Reynolds, isn't it? I looked at a German Website OFDB.de which is normally very good in searching for any releases or TV screenings but I couldn't find anything.

Yes, it is. Thanks for looking, Paco, it looks like my suspicions were right. Because of this, I actually want to see the movie now!

Has anyone ever seen Tod Browning’s “Devil-Doll” from 1936. It is about a refugee from Devil’s Island who disguises himself as an old-lady who sells human dolls which murder those responsible for his imprisionment. I am really interested in seeing this film. Have any of you seen it?

Sorry. Not seen that one.

I haven’t seen it either… But considering that it’s made around the same time that he made Dracula, Mark Of The Vampire and the amazing Freaks, chances are it’ll be pretty good.

@ Starblack.

Where’s your quote from? It really rings a bell, but I can’t think what film it is.

Magnum Force perhaps…

“Freaks” was spectacularly good. It gave you real scares and never resorted to mindless gore.

Thank you. It’s one of Tod Browning’s more obscure films so I didn’t expect too many people to have seen it.

Welcome to the Django club by the way John :slight_smile: .

Thank you!

Great line… I knew it was familiar. Pretty good film as it goes, gotta love those cool contact lenses!


(John Welles) #16

Ah, right. Looks like my only chance of seeing it is to pick up the DVD!


(Spaghetti Monkey) #17

It’s a fun little flick, though i wouldn’t put it on the same level as FREAKS or MARK OF THE VAMPIRE. If nothing else, you get to see Lionel Barrymore in drag. I’d rate it a solid 6/10.


(John Welles) #18

I’m not sure if this is suppose to be a highlight from the film.

Billy Bob Thornton’s All the Pretty Horses (2001) is on tonight and I’m in two minds whether to watch it or not, as I’ve some pretty bad reviews about it. Is it any good?
