Norma Talmadge, Anna Q. Nilsson, Corrinne Griffith, Gloria Swanson - Dir. Frank Lloyd


Ashes of Vengeance (1923) Norma Talmadge; Dir. Frank Lloyd

Ashes of Vengeance is a 1923 movie by Frank Lloyd, starring Norma Talmadge and Wallace Beery. This film survives at the Library of Congress and at the George Eastman House, Rochester New York.

Directed by Frank Lloyd
Written by Frank Lloyd
Story by H.B. Somerville
Starring Norma Talmadge, Wallace Beery
Distributed by First National Pictures (as Associated First National)
Release date: August 6, 1923
Running time: 120 minutes

Winds of Chance (1925) Anna Q. Nilsson; Dir. Frank Lloyd

This Klondike epic from Frank Lloyd came out just a few months after Chaplin's The Gold Rush (1925) and tells almost the same story, except with less comedy and A LOT more action and female entanglements! So if you need a alternative to Chaplin's version, or hungry for more gold rush films, then this one is for you!

Ben Lyon stars as the naive one, getting continually screwed over by people he meet. The only real friend he finds is Victor McLaglen, as a jolly French Canadian, which was a bit weird. But he's the life and counter personality to all the greedy people that climb the hills and sail the rough water for wealth. And there are 3 ladies mixed in to make it extra complicated, along with several sub-plots/persons to fill the 2 hours of adventure.

Lady Death (2004)




Lady Death: The Movie is a 2004 North American animated film based on the comic book character Lady Death. This film was the first animation project produced by now-defunct anime distributor A.D. Vision. It had premiered at the 2004 Comic-Con convention.

Directed by Andy Orjuela
Produced by Andy Orjuela
Screenplay by Brian Pulido
Story by Carl Macek
Starring Christine M. Auten
Music by Bill Brown
Studio A.D. Vision
Release date: July 24, 2004
Running time: 80 minutes
Country: United States
Language: English


Brian Pulido's cadaverous comic book heroine springs to animated life in the full-length, made-for-video anime film LADY DEATH. In 15th-century Sweden, an innocent young maiden named Hope discovers that her beloved father is, in fact, the Devil in disguise.

Condemned to be burned at the stake by the local townsfolk, Hope strikes a deal with Lucifer to spend eternity in Hell in exchange for escape from her igneous death. But once in the fiery depths, Hope breaks the pact and transforms herself into the voluptuous, white-haired warrior Lady Death, battling to wrest control of Hell away from her demonic father in a last-ditch effort at salvation.

Director Andrew Orjuela, screenwriter Carl Macek (ROBOTECH: THE MOVIE), and composer Bill Brown (ANY GIVEN SUNDAY) imbue Pulido's epic tale with a Neil Gaiman-meets-Bruegel style of animation perfectly suited to its gothic subject matter.

Christmas Eve (1986) Loretta Young
with Arthur Hill, Ron Leibman, Trevor Howard, Patrick Cassidy, Season Hubley, Kate Reid

Golden Globe - Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for TV (1987) - Loretta Young

NBC TV network, Original airing Dec. 22nd, 1986 - Story of a well-to-do elderly woman, who befriends the homeless and volunteers her time with children, who learns she has an incurable illness and wants desperately to reunite her three grown grand children (who are scattered across the U.S. living their own lives), with their estranged father, her son. She hires a private detective to search for them so as to try to get everyone together on Christmas Eve for one last reunion. DVD exactly as see on TV.

A heart warming story line that most can relate to. "Loretta Young brings her strength, intelligence and charm to this role. Welcome Back!"

Although scripts were still occasionally coming in, Loretta now considered herself permanently retired. That is, until 1986, when she was offered the perfect script, the lead in an NBC made-for-TV movie titled "Christmas Eve."

Filming was on location in Toronto, and twelve hour days were the norm, the director and crew allowed her to sleep a little later than everyone else in the mornings. Other than that, at 74, she kept up with the pace.

And she had lost none of her perfectionist tendencies: every night she looked at her dailies to see if her character was developing on-screen the way she should. "Unless you do," she told the director, "you don't know if the character is alive, dead, or too one-dimensional."

Four months later with Ronald Reagan - Loretta attended the Golden Globe awards. As the "Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Movie" category was announced, the winner was . . . Loretta Young! She received a standing ovation as she went onstage to collect her prize. "Miracles do happen," she said to the packed hall. "God in His mysterious way gave me 23 years to prepare for this role. This is the icing on the cake." She thought she heard Mama clapping too.

Two years later, Loretta made her very last film, Lady In A Corner, co-starring Brian Keith and Lindsay Frost, also for NBC and also filmed in Toronto.

Critic Hal Erikson said; "The sole reason for watching this made-for-TV movie is star Loretta Young, looking as youthful and stunning as ever." She was then 77 years young.

Exactly as aired December 22nd, 1986.

D.W. Griffith classics The Greatest Question (1919), The White Rose (1923), Hoodoo Ann (1916)



The Greatest Question is a 1919 American drama film directed by D. W. Griffith, Starring Lillian Gish and Robert Harron.


The White Rose (1923) is a silent film directed by D. W. Griffith. The film was written, produced, and directed by Griffith, and stars Mae Marsh, Ivor Novello, Carol Dempster, and Neil Hamilton.

The film was shot in several locations throughout Florida and Louisiana. Though this film is extant it is one of Griffith's rarely seen films. According to film historian William K. Everson, a tinted and toned 35 mm nitrate print was allowed to decompose in the 1960s, leaving only a sole B/W dupe.

Hoodoo Ann is a 1916 Lloyd Ingraham-directed American comedy-drama silent film, written by D.W. Griffith and released by Triangle Film Corporation.

D.W. Griffith classics Orphans of the Storm (1921), Broken Blossoms (1919), Hearts of the World (1918)



Hearts of the World (1918) is a silent film directed by D. W. Griffith, a wartime propaganda classic that was filmed on location in Britain and near the Western Front, made at the request of the British Government to change the neutral mindset of the American public.



 



Broken Blossoms or The Yellow Man and the Girl is a 1919 silent film directed by D.W. Griffith. It was distributed by United Artists and premiered on May 13, 1919.


It stars Lillian Gish, Richard Barthelmess and Donald Crisp, and tells the story of young girl, Lucy Burrows, who is abused by her alcoholic prizefighting father, Battling Burrows, and meets Cheng Huan, a kind-hearted Chinese man who falls in love with her. It is based on Thomas Burke's short story "The Chink and the Child" from the 1916 collection Limehouse Nights.

Introduction by Miss Gish.


Orphans of the Storm is a 1921 drama film by D. W. Griffith set in late 18th century France, before and during the French Revolution.

This was the last Griffith film to feature Lillian and Dorothy Gish, and is often considered Griffith's last major commercial success, after box office hits such as Birth of a Nation, Intolerance, and Broken Blossoms.

Like his earlier films, Griffith used historical events to comment on contemporary events, in this case the French Revolution to warn about the rise of Bolshevism. The film is about class conflict and a plea for inter-class understanding and against destructive hatred. At one point, in front of the Committee of Public Safety, a main character pleads, "Yes I am an aristocrat, but a friend of the people."

The film is based on the 1874 French play "Les Deux Orphalines" by Adolphe d'Ennery and Eugène Cormon, which had been adapted for the American stage by N. Hart Jackson and Albert Marshman Palmer as The Two Orphans, premiering at Marshman Palmer's Union Square Theatre (58 E. 14th St.) in New York City in December 1874 with Kate Claxton as Lousie.

It had been filmed in the United States twice before Griffith did his film: in 1911 by Otis Turner and in 1915 by Herbert Brenon (the lost Theda Bara film The Two Orphans). The play had also been filmed twice in France in 1910: by Albert Capellani and by Georges Monca.

D.W. Griffith classics Birth of A Nation (1915), Intolerance (1916), Way Down East (1920)






The Birth of a Nation (originally called The Clansman) is a 1915 American silent drama film directed by D. W. Griffith and based on the novel and play The Clansman, both by Thomas Dixon, Jr. Griffith co-wrote the screenplay (with Frank E. Woods), and co-produced the film (with Harry Aitken). It was released on February 8, 1915. The film was originally presented in two parts, separated by an intermission.
The film chronicles the relationship of two families in Civil War and Reconstruction-era America: the pro-Union Northern Stonemans and the pro-Confederacy Southern Camerons over the course of several years. The assassination of President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth is dramatized.

The film was a commercial success, but was highly controversial owing to its portrayal of African-American men (played by white actors in blackface) as unintelligent and sexually aggressive towards white women, and the portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan (whose original founding is dramatized) as a heroic force.

There were widespread protests against The Birth of a Nation, and it was banned in several cities. The outcry of racism was so great that Griffith was inspired to produce Intolerance the following year.

The film is also credited as one of the events that inspired the formation of the "second era" Ku Klux Klan at Stone Mountain, Georgia, in the same year. The Birth of a Nation was used as a recruiting tool for the KKK.

Under President Woodrow Wilson, it was the first motion picture to be shown at the White House.

Despite the film's controversial content, Griffith's innovative film techniques make it one of the most important and influential films in the commercial film industry.


Intolerance is a 1916 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. Each story had its own tint in the original print. The scenes are linked by shots of a figure representing Eternal Motherhood, rocking a cradle (Lillian Gish)

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.


Way Down East is a 1920 American silent romantic drama film directed by D. W. Griffith and starring Lillian Gish. It is one of four film adaptations of the melodramatic 19th century play Way Down East by Lottie Blair Parker. There were two earlier silent versions, and one sound version in 1935, starring Henry Fonda.

Griffith's version is particularly remembered for its exciting climax in which Lillian Gish's character is rescued from doom on an icy river. Some sources, quoting newspaper ads of the time, say a sequence was filmed in an early color process, possibly Technicolor or Prizmacolor.

At the Circus (a.k.a. The Marx Brothers at the Circus) is a 1939 Marx Brothers comedy film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in which they save a circus from bankruptcy.

The Nov. 11, 1939 Ottawa Citizen described the film as "a veritable riot of hilarity" and "possibly the nuttiest of the films that Groucho, Chico and Harpo have perpetuated."
