From the Hollywood Golden Ages

Have you seen these?

I rewatched His Girl Friday and My Man Godfrey yesterday, on a proper theater screen. Pretty spectacular.

Golden Age I:
My Man Godfrey (1936) - directed by Gregory La Cava

His Girl Friday (1940) - directed by Howard Hawks

Cary Grant is even better than he's supposed to be.

Golden Age 2:
Scarecrow (1973) - directed by Jerry Schatzberg

The best Pacino or Hackman movie you've never seen.

California Split (1974) - directed by Robert Altman

My favourite Altman film. Read about it.
