    • Re: Screen Legends- Joel McCrea

      A few weeks back I came upon this list on the net,

      “The Greatest American Films Ever Made” (response to a BBC critics poll, 6/19/15)
      Posted June 19, 2015
      1. GREED (Stroheim, 1924)
      2. SUNRISE (Murnau, 1927)
      3. THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS (Welles, 1942)
      4. CITY LIGHTS (Chaplin, 1931)
      5. LOVE ME TONIGHT (Mamoulian, 1932)
      6. THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES (Wyler, 1946)
      7. STARS IN MY CROWN (Tourneur, 1950)
      8. LOVE STREAMS (Cassavetes, 1984)
      9. A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (Kubrick & Spielberg, 2001)
      10. WHEN IT RAINS (Burnett, 1995)

      None of these would make my list . (Ambersons, maybe)

      I had never heard of Stars in My Crown so I looked it up. It has played on TCM and was well spoken of on IMDB and I like Joel McCrea so I got hold of a copy. I think it is a very good film filled with terrific actors. James Arness appears but never speaks. Amanda Blake is in it also. They don't meet. They don't make films like this any more either. Shame.

      BTW, if your having trouble with a DVD, Windex is a good cleaner.
