The Ten Commandments (1923) Cecil B. De Mille




The Ten Commandments is a 1923 American epic silent film directed by Cecil B. DeMille.

Starring Theodore Roberts as Moses, Charles de Rochefort as Pharaoh Ramesses, Estelle Taylor as Miriam the sister of Moses, and James Neill as Aaron, the brother of Moses. The cast also included notable silent film actors Nita Naldi, Leatrice Joy, Rod La Rocque, Richard Dix, Edythe Chapman and Agnes Ayres. The film is a grand spectacle of early Hollywood filmmaking, running 136 minutes, with the Exodus scenes photographed in early Technicolor.

While the first half of the film tells the biblical story, the second half is a morality parable set in modern times. The film is the first in DeMille's biblical trilogy followed by The King of Kings (1927) and The Sign of the Cross (1932). The movie was released by Paramount Pictures and premiered at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre on December 4, 1923.

Julie Andrews - The Tamarind Seed, Duet for One, That's Life, On Golden Pond, Our Sons, One Special Night, A Fine Romance











Julie Andrews - starring in acclaimed dramatic roles!

Duet for One (1986) is a film adapted from an award-winning British play, a two-hander by Tom Kempinski, about a world-famous concert violinist named Stephanie Anderson who is suddenly struck with multiple sclerosis. It is set in London and directed by Andrei Konchalovsky. The story is based on the life of cellist Jacqueline du Pré, who was diagnosed with MS, and her husband, conductor Daniel Barenboim, and only marginally fictionalized.
Julie Andrews, Alan Bates, Max Von Syndow

That's Life! is a 1986 film with Jack Lemmon and Julie Andrews, directed by Blake Edwards.
co-starring Chris Lemmon, Sally Kellerman, Jennifer Edwards

The film was made independently by Edwards using largely his own finances and was distributed by Columbia Pictures.

That's Life! was shot in Edwards and his wife Andrews' own beachside home in Malibu and features their family in small roles, including two daughters. Lemmon's son Chris Lemmon plays his character's son Josh, while his wife Felicia Farr puts in a brief cameo appearance as a fortune teller.

Because of the film's independent status, many of the cast and crew were paid below union-level wages, resulting in the American Society of Cinematographers picketing the film during production and taking an advertisement in Variety in protest. As a result, the original director of photography, Harry Stradling Jr., was forced to quit the film and was subsequently replaced by Anthony Richmond, a British cinematographer.

The Tamarind Seed is a 1974 Blake Edwards film starring Julie Andrews as Judith Farrow, a British Home Office functionary and Omar Sharif as Feodor, a Soviet air attaché – lovers involved in Cold War intrigue. This was Lorimar's first film. The score was composed by John Barry. The screenplay was based on the "The Tamarind Seed: A Novel," by Evelyn Anthony. (New York: Dell, 1971) 119 min

On Golden Pond (2001) A made for TV movie re-uniting Julie with her "Sound of Music" co-star Christopher Plummer.

Our Sons (1991) Made for TV "AIDS" drama co-starring Ann-Margret.

Returning home empty-handed, the children see that the bird has been in a cage in their home the whole time. Tyltyl later gives the bird as a present to a sick neighbor. However, the bird flies away and never returns. The moral is that happiness comes more from the journey than the reward and that happiness is fleeting.

Enthusiastically, he sent out the first unfinished pilot film, "Alice's Wonderland," to cartoon distributors in New York. One of them, Margaret Winkler, agreed to distribute the series, with payment beginning at $1,500 per reel. The pilot film was made in Kansas City; all 56 of the remaining films in the series were made in Hollywood.

Silent STAR~Diva MAE MURRAY 3 film gems - 2 DVDs





Mae Murray is (the) Delicious Little Devil (1919) & Mademoiselle Midnight (1924)
Original Music Score by Brian Pinette & The Merry Widow (1925) with John Gilbert

Mae Murray 2 classics

Delicious Little Devil (1919) & Mademoiselle Midnight (1924) -1 DVD

The barely-remembered comedy (Delicious Little Devil) Mae Murray turns in a cute little comic performance as a dizzy girl who supports her extended family by taking a job as a dancer in a roadhouse, appropriating the reputation of a notorious vampire. Rudolph Valentino is featured as the playboy son of a wealthy building contractor who becomes fascinated with the incognito dancing girl ... Mae Murray’s winning performance is reminiscent of the comical performances of Mary Pickford and Mary Miles Minter, with her pouty, silver-lidded makeup and her mugging, girlish mannerisms all played to the hilt. Valentino is nondescript in this stock role that predates his success as a mysteriously foreign ladykiller. We really enjoy the spare comic performance of Mary’s roadhouse maid, played by an anonymous actress. — Carl Bennett


Mademoiselle Midnight is a 1924 film starring Mae Murray and directed by the star's then husband, Robert Z. Leonard. The film was written by Carl Harbaugh and John Russell and was the first release of MGM after the amalgamation, having been produced by Metro under the Tiffany Productions banner, owned by the couple. Re-mastered and enhanced by Brian Pinette (good 16mm – digital trasnfer)

AND

Erich Von Stroheim's masterpiece - The Merry Widow (1925) co-starring John Gilbert.
