Summary, etc.:
The Time of Your Life (1948): The movie is a joyful and raucous interpretation of William Saroyan's Pulitzer prize winning play that depicts the drama and bi-play between the flawed but fascinating patrons of Nick's Saloon, Restaurant, and Entertainment Palace, a notorious waterfront hangout. Star: James Cagney.
A Farewell to Arms (1932): A tale of the love between ambulance driver Lt. Henry (Gary Cooper) and Nurse Catherine Barkley (Helen Hayes) during World War I. Set against the sweeping backdrop of Italy, they fall passionately in love during the war and will stop at nothing to be together. The film explores the futility of war and the chilling effect it has on the emotion of those trapped in its web.
The Scarlet Pimpernel (1934): Leslie Howard plays a brave and noble swordsman who masquerades as a delicate and cowardly nobleman while secretly rescuing frightened aristocrats from the clutches of heartless French revolutionaries.
The Black Pirate (1926): This silent movie classic is full of firsts. It was both produced and written by Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. who also was the principal star. It was also one of the first features shot entirely in Technicolor. Fairbanks stars as a wronged nobleman who signs up with a gang of pirates in order to seek retribution for the death of his father. The amazing action scenes highligh Fairbanks Sr.'s astounding prowess in swordsmanship.
