Samurai, WWII, Cold War, and Gold Fever

Victor Khomenko,

Other fantastic B&W, besides favorites Seven Samurai and the Third Man that I never get tired of seeing:

Dr. Strangelove: Watch out for Communists after your precious bodily fluids!

The Train: Burt Lancaster artfully beats the Nazis for art's sake!

Sanjuro: Great Samurai

Yojimbo: Greater Samurai: Clint Eastwood never did it as well

Our Man in Havana: Alec Guinness as mild mannered Havana vacuum cleaner salesman turned 007.

The Lavender Hill Mob: Alec Guinness as mild mannered bank clerk who gets Gold fever

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre: Bogart gets Gold fever,..

Dambusters: Mild mannered scientist /engineer beats the Nazis with giant billiard balls. I can never figure out why I like this so much.

The Artist (2011) Silent AND B&W - surprisingly captivating.

Young Frankenstein: I don't think is probably your taste, but for me an occasional dose of slapstick is a relief. I first saw this in Paris in 1975 called, "Frankenstein Junior" with French subtitles and that was a funny experience in itself.

As soon as I press "Post", I'll think of ten more.
