Erich Von Stroheim - Greed (1924) Zasu Pitts ~ 240min.






Greed (1924)

It was directed by Erich von Stroheim and starring Gibson Gowland, Zasu Pitts, Jean Hersholt, Dale Fuller, Tempe Pigott, Sylvia Ashton, Chester Conklin, Joan Standing and Jack Curtis.

The plot follows a dentist whose wife wins a lottery ticket, only to become obsessed with money. When her former lover betrays the dentist as a fraud, all of their lives are destroyed.

The movie was adapted by von Stroheim (shooting screenplay) and Joseph Farnham (titles) from the 1899 novel McTeague by Frank Norris. (The on-screen writing credit for June Mathis was strictly a contractual obligation to her on the part of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (the parent studio), as she was not actually involved in the production.)

Originally over ten hours long, Greed was ultimately edited against von Stroheim's permission to about two and a half hours, and the full-length version is a lost film. This DVD is TCM airing; 240 minutes.

Noah’s Ark (1928) Dolores Costello, George O’Brien








Noah’s Ark (1928) Dolores Costello, George O’Brien silent drama

Noah’s Ark (1928) American early romantic melodramatic disaster film directed by Michael Curtiz and written by Darryl F. Zanuck. The film starred Dolores Costello and George O'Brien. Released by Warner Bros. studio, the film was representative of the transition from silent movies to "talkies", although it was essentially a kind of film known as a part-talkie, utilizing new (at that time) Vitaphone sound-on-disc technology.

Some scenes are silent, in particular the biblical ones, while others have sound.

During the filming of the climactic flood scene, the great volume of water used was so overwhelming that three extras drowned, one was so badly injured that his leg needed to be amputated, and a number suffered broken limbs and other serious injuries, which led to implementation of stunt safety regulations the following year. Dolores Costello caught a severe case of pneumonia.

John Wayne and Andy Devine were among the hundreds of extras in the flood scene. Wayne also worked in the prop department for the film.

Portions of the movie were filmed at the Iverson Movie Ranch in Chatsworth, Calif., and the location was incorporated into an iconic special effects shot that opens the film. The shot depicts the massive ark "beached" on the giant boulders of the movie ranch's Garden of the Gods, which later would become famous for appearances in hundreds of movies including John Ford's Stagecoach (1939).

The Sinking of the Titanic (1913) & Titanic: Disaster in the Atlantic (1929)








The Sinking of the Titanic (1913) & Titanic: Disaster in the Atlantic (1929) DVD

The Sinking of the Titanic - In Nacht und Eis (1913)

In Nacht und Eis or Night Time in Ice ... (German: "In Night and Ice"), also called Der Untergang der Titanic ("The Sinking of the Titanic") is a 1912 German film about the sinking of Titanic. The filming began during the summer of 1912 and the film premiered that winter. The film's special effects are primitive by today's standards, but were impressive for that time. In the film, a small toy model ship hits an ice block in a small pond and sinks. The film starts out by the passengers boarding at Southampton. The movie depicts the life of the passengers on board the ill-fated ocean liner. On April 14, during dinner in the Cafe Parisian, the Titanic strikes an iceberg, throwing the passengers in the cafe to the side. Panic strikes the passengers and the crew ready the lifeboats despite the fact that there aren't enough of them. Women and children are loaded while the men are held back. The radio operators,(who take up most of the sinking part of the film) send out an urgent SOS. Fire blows out of the funnels during the sinking and then the boilers explode. The radio room floods and finally the operators and captain jump ship and the Titanic sinks.

The film was produced by Continental Film Studios of Berlin, and while most of its footage was shot in studios and in a lot behind the studio building, some footage was shot in Hamburg and some was possibly done aboard the German ocean liner Kaiserin Auguste Victoria, then docked at Hamburg. The Berlin Fire Department provided water to use for the sinking scenes. With a running time of 35 minutes, In Nacht und Eis was three times longer than the average film of 1912. Around 1914, the film was deemed lost forever, like many other silent films of that era. Then, in 1998, a German film collector realized he had it in his private collection (this came not long after the release of the James Cameron film). Various scenes can be seen in the documentary Beyond Titanic.

Starring Waldemar Hecker, Otto Rippert, Ernst Ruckert (Anton Ernst Rickert)
Directed by Mime Misu
Release date: 1912 ... Running time: 35 minutes (5 airing)

Atlantic (1929)

The first "talkie" Titanic film. Produced by E.A. Dupont and based on the stage play "The Berg". Later renamed "Titanic: Disaster in The Atlantic."

Atlantic (1929) is a British black-and-white film, directed and produced by Ewald André Dupont and starring Franklin Dyall & Madeleine Carroll. Three versions were made, one in the United Kingdom, one in Germany, and one in France (Atlantis, 1930). There was a further version released in Denmark, although this was a silent film and used different footage and an altered storyline.

Atlantic is a drama film based on the RMS Titanic and set aboard a fictional ship, called the Atlantic. The main plot line revolves around a man who has a shipboard affair with a fellow passenger, which is eventually discovered by his wife. The ship also has aboard an elderly couple, the Rools, who are on their anniversary cruise. Midway across the Atlantic Ocean, the Atlantic strikes an iceberg and is damaged to the point where it is sinking into the Atlantic. A shortage of lifeboats causes the crew to only allow women and children in and many couples are separated. Mrs. Rool refuses to leave her husband and after the boats are gone all the passengers gather on the deck and sing "Nearer, My God, to Thee" as the Atlantic sinks into the ocean. The final scenes depict a group of passengers saying the Lord's Prayer in a flooding lounge.

American drama film directed by Jean Negulesco. Its plot centers on an estranged couple sailing on the maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic, which took place in April 1912.
