Civilization (1916) Intolerance - 2 Epic silent film masterpieces - 2 DVDs





Civilization (1916) Dir: Thomas H. Ince
American pacifist allegorical film about a submarine commander who refuses to fire at a civilian ocean liner supposedly carrying ammunition for his country's enemies.

The film was a big-budget spectacle that was compared to both Birth of a Nation and the paintings of Jean-François Millet. The film was a popular success and was credited by the Democratic National Committee with helping to re-elect Woodrow Wilson as the U.S. President in 1916.

The film was also the first to depict Jesus Christ as a character in a motion picture, leading some to criticize the depiction as in "poor taste."

Starring Howard C. Hickman, Enid Markey, George Fisher
Directed by Thomas H. Ince, Reginald Barker, Raymond B. West
Produced by Thomas H. Ince
Written by C. Gardner Sullivan
Distributed by Triangle Film Corporation
Release date: 1916
Running time: 88 min.
Country: United States


Intolerance (1916) Dir: D.W. Griffith
American silent film directed by D. W. Griffith and is considered one of the great masterpieces of the Silent Era.

The three-and-a-half hour epic intercuts four parallel storylines each separated by several centuries: A contemporary melodrama of crime and redemption; a Judean story: Christ’s mission and death; a French story: the events surrounding the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre of 1572; and a Babylonian story: the fall of the Babylonian Empire to Persia in 539 BC.

Intolerance was made partly in response to criticism of Griffith's previous film, The Birth of a Nation (1915), which was attacked by the NAACP and other groups as perpetuating racial stereotypes and glorifying the Ku Klux Klan.

Marie Dressler ~ Dangerous Females (1929) & Tugboat Annie (1933)



Marie Dressler ~Academy Award Winner ~
One of the most beloved and talented stars in MGM film history.

From silent film “star” most notably Charlie Chaplin’s “Tillie’s Punctured Romance” (1914) and then a very early talkie “Dangerous Females” (1929), Miss Dressler was a phenomena. She was not a leading lady “type" and she was not too pretty.

But the audiences knew she had “it!”

Under her gruff and formidable stature - there was pathos, nuance & a finely tuned comedic talent.

We shall never see the likes of this class act again.

Dangerous Females (1929) & Tugboat Annie (1933)

Dangerous Females (1929)
Early comedy talkie co-starring Polly Moran & Frank Rice.
Roommates panic and plan when they hear a radio report of a murderer loose in their neighborhood ...
Director: William Watson
Writers: Florence Ryerson (scenario), Colin Clements (scenario)


Tugboat Annie (1933)
starring Marie Dressler, Wallace Beery & Robert Young, Maureen O’Sullivan
Directed by Mervyn LeRoy & Produced by Irving Thalberg (un-credited)
Tugboat Annie is a 1933 movie starring Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery as a comically quarrelsome middle-aged couple who operate a tugboat. Dressler and Beery were MGM's most popular screen team at that time, having recently made Min and Bill (1930) together, for which Dressler had won an Oscar.

The boisterous Tugboat Annie character first appeared in a series of stories in the Saturday Evening Post written by the author Norman Reilly Raine which were based on the life of Thea Foss of Tacoma, Washington. There is also a theory that her character is loosely based on Kate A. Sutton, secretary and dispatcher for the Providence Steamboat Company during the 1920s.

Tugboat Annie also features Robert Young and Maureen O'Sullivan as the requisite pair of young lovers. The movie was written by Norman Reilly Raine and Zelda Sears, and directed by Mervyn LeRoy. Capt. Clarance Howden Piloted the boat which was Owned by Foss Tug And Barge of Seattle, His son Richard Howden is seen rolling rope during the credits. Capt. Howden retired from Foss after 53 years of service, and was Fosses 2nd Capt.

The Cat and the Canary (1978) Carol Lynley, Honor Blackman
With Michael Callan, Edward Fox. Directed by Radley Metzger.

Frank Willard's 1927 stage play The Cat and the Canary was filmed several times before this 1978 version saw the light of day. In the story, Annabelle West (Carol Lynley) is one of several potential heirs to a huge fortune. Brought to his foreboding mansion to learn who will benefit from his death, the anxious heirs must sit still for the deceased's taped recitation of his bequests. The dead man, Cyrus West (Wilfred Hyde-White), takes advantage of the occasion to scold his greedy and unpleasant relatives. He leaves behind several posthumous practical jokes which drive his points home. It's a rainy night, the mansion is full of surprises, most of the heirs are an anxious, unpleasant lot, and at least one of them is not above committing murder to have his way. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

Carol Lynley as HARLOW (1965) Ginger Rogers as Mama Jean

NY Times, May 1965
"The "Harlow" based on Mr. Shulman's handiwork still lurks around the bend, trumpets blaring. Meanwhile, at the Paramount, is the race-winner penned by Karl Tunberg and shot, in the short-cut Electronovision process, apparently before the ink dried. The picture took eight days for filming, the last two due to inclement weather. It didn't rain long enough.

There is, front, center and anything but alluring, Carol Lynley as the nation's movie sex goddess of the thirties. She squeaks, occasionally furrows her youthful brow and twitches her nostrils.

Let's round out the cast. There's Ginger Rogers, as the star's whining, pushing mother; Barry Sullivan, as the girl's lazy, avaricious stepfather; Efrem Zimbalist Jr., as a lofty-nosed actor the heroine finally loves. Hurd Hatfield plays Paul Bern, her "incapable" producer-husband, and Jack Kruschen is Louis B. Mayer, depicted here as a kind of realistic, owlish Santa Claus.

All these, and unfortunates, under Alex Segal's direction, lope through the vignettes of this bony, bargain-basement appraisal of a famous, misguided and tragic young woman. The story, at least as souped up here, never suggests the evolution of a fine comedienne—an actress who learned—whose radiant, white-hot image brightened the screen, glowed and dimmed.

The picture has the tough-minded young heroine falling into her choice "Hell's Angels" role and then battling her mother, stepfather and studio over her sex synonymity, seeking solace in a doomed marriage and finally expiring, rather mysteriously, attended by true love (Mr. Zimbalist) as "Mr. Mayer" intones, "May God rest her soul." Most of the dialogue is atrocious. The picture hovers over the sequence of her tragic alliance with the suicidal Mr. Bern—a brief, amoral aftermath—with peephole solicitude.

Hermione Baddeley totters in with motherly advice to the heroine, playing Marie Dressler. Michael Dante, as a professional lover, clips off the film's most telling line to Miss Lynley: "Everybody has problems. But you stars are the ones who can afford to have them."

The Electronovision rush job on Miss Harlow's life and career is also a dimly-lit business technically. Maybe it's just as well. This much is for sure: Whatever the second "Harlow" picture looks and sounds like, it can't be much worse than the first.

B/W - Overall good quality for this low budget opus filmed in 8 days in EARLY videotape style media.

Mary & Jack Pickford ~ Tom Sawyer & The Pride of the Clan (1917)


Mary Pickford ~ Hollywood’s FIRST film superstar and her brother Tom were both major stars in the silent film era.

While Tom would never reach the stardom, acclaim and accolades afforded his multi-talented sister - he was an actor of note with his charm and matinee idol good looks.

Alcohol and drug addiction would end his career in a minor scandal.

Tom Sawyer (1917) Jack Pickford

Paramount Pictures silent film starring Jack Pickford, Robert Gordon and Clara Horton Based on Mark Twain's novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Directed by William Desmond Taylor
Produced by Jesse L. Lasky
Written by Mark Twain (novel), Julia Crawford Ivers (screenplay)
Original Music Score, Brian Pinette
Distributed by Paramount Pictures
Release date: December 10, 1917
Running time: 59 min.

This version contains its more homespun situations - the whitewashing episode, Tom's courtship of Becky Thatcher, his decision to run away with his pals Huck Finn and Joe Harper, and their "return from the dead" at their own funeral, however it leaves out the murder committed by Injun Joe and his death at Tom's hands.

The Pride of the Clan (1917) Mary Pickford

The Poor Pride of the Clan is a 1917 romantic drama film directed by Maurice Tourneur. It stars Mary Pickford and Matt Moore. The film was shot in Fort Lee, New Jersey when many early film studios in America's first motion picture industry were based there at the beginning of the 20th century.

Female on the Beach (1955) & Night Gallery (1969) Joan Crawford



Night Gallery (1969) Joan Crawford

Joan Crawford in the film which began the series, November 8, 1969 (pilot).
Genre: Anthology
Created by Rod Serling and presented by Rod Serling

Serling appeared in an art gallery setting and introduced the macabre tales that made up each episode by unveiling paintings (by artist Tom Wright) that depicted the stories. Night Gallery regularly presented adaptations of classic fantasy tales by authors such as H. P. Lovecraft, as well as original works, many of which were by Serling himself.

The series was introduced with a pilot TV movie that aired on November 8, 1969, and featured the directorial debut of Steven Spielberg, as well as one of the last acting performances by Joan Crawford. Allegedly, Bette Davis was set to star in the segment, but she felt her work was not important to a young director. However there is nothing in the files at Universal to suggest anyone other than Crawford was slated for the role.

Unlike the series, in which the paintings merely accompanied an introduction to the upcoming story, the paintings themselves actually appeared in the three segments, serving major or minor plot functions.

Night Gallery was initially part of a rotating anthology or wheel series called Four in One. This 1970–1971 television series rotated four separate shows, including McCloud, SFX (San Francisco International Airport) and The Psychiatrist. Two of these, Night Gallery and McCloud were renewed for the 1971–1972 season with McCloud becoming the most popular and longest running of the four.

NIGHT GALLERY (Air date: November 8, 1969)

Rod Serling wrote and introduces three supernatural tales with his distinctive stamp: eerie plots and chilling denouements. In the first, a despicable young man (Roddy McDowall) kills his uncle, then suffers a strange haunting from a mysteriously changing family painting. Next, a wealthy blind woman (Joan Crawford) buys herself 12 hours of sight, intending to make every second count if the operation works. And in the last, a fugitive Nazi (Richard Kiley), seeking escape from his past, begins a new phase of torment.
