MILDRED PIERCE (dir: Michael Curtiz, Not Rated) - Bart says, "Apparently, MILDRED PIERCE is being remade as a mini-series on HBO with Kate Winslet in the titular Joan Crawford role. Normally I'd have some cranky words to say about Hollywood yet again remaking a perfectly perfect movie, but they put Todd Haynes in charge of it, and his FAR FROM HEAVEN was a brilliant updating of Sirk's ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS, so maybe this one could be good. But let me give you several reasons to watch the original: You get to see Joan Crawford in her best starring role - you'll forget all about the camp icon she eventually becomes. You get Ann Blyth as the most horrid, ungrateful, evil little teenager daughter ever put on screen. You get a seamless blend of two of the most popular genres of the time - Women's Picture and what's now referred to as Film Noir. Mostly you just get grand old-style entertainment full of melodrama & mystery, tears & suspense, passion & pies."
THE CLOCK (dir: Vincente Minnelli, Not Rated) - Bart says, "In an era of over-the-top romances, whether comedy, melodrama or musical, THE CLOCK stands out as the most realistic story of a boy and a girl falling in love that classic Hollywood ever produced. Soldier Robert Walker ponders what to do with himself during his two-day leave in New York when he meets pretty shop-girl Judy Garland. They then proceed to spend as much time together as possible before he has to go back to war. And that's the whole story - Judy doesn't even get a chance to sing! Fans of BEFORE SUNRISE & BEFORE SUNSET will especially appreciate this sweet, simple prototype from half a century before."
