Last year we were gifted with an excellent Blu-ray of a silent John Ford western, 3 Bad Men, which turned out to be a satisfying sentimental action tale. This month we get a much older silent western that’s almost as interesting. Its star is William S. Hart, the silent icon most of know through a still of a man in a ten-gallon hat brandishing two pistols in a barroom. Hart frequently played gunslingers, but not always. Olive’s presentation of Wagon Tracks sees him

Long Before Day-Lewis, Oscar-Nominated Actor Played Lincoln: TCM 'Stars' Series Continues

Raymond Massey ca. 1940. Raymond Massey movies: From Lincoln to Boris Karloff Though hardly remembered today, the Toronto-born Raymond Massey was a top supporting player – and sometime lead – in both British and American movies from the early '30s all the way to the early '60s. During that period, Massey was featured in nearly 50 films. Turner Classic Movies generally selects the same old MGM / Rko / Warner Bros. stars for its annual “Summer Under the Stars” series. For that reason, it's great to see someone like Raymond Massey – who was with Warners in the '40s – be the focus of a whole day: Sat., Aug. 8, '15. (See TCM's Raymond Massey movie schedule further below.) Admittedly, despite his prestige – his stage credits included the title role in the short-lived 1931 Broadway production of Hamlet – the quality of Massey's performances varied wildly. Sometimes he could be quite effective; most of the time, however, he was an unabashed scenery chewer,

Last Surviving Gwtw Star and 2-Time Oscar Winner Has Turned 99: As a Plus, She Made U.S. Labor Law History

Olivia de Havilland picture U.S. labor history-making 'Gone with the Wind' star and two-time Best Actress winner Olivia de Havilland turns 99 (This Olivia de Havilland article is currently being revised and expanded.) Two-time Best Actress Academy Award winner Olivia de Havilland, the only surviving major Gone with the Wind cast member and oldest surviving Oscar winner, is turning 99 years old today, July 1.[1] Also known for her widely publicized feud with sister Joan Fontaine and for her eight movies with Errol Flynn, de Havilland should be remembered as well for having made Hollywood labor history. This particular history has nothing to do with de Havilland's films, her two Oscars, Gone with the Wind, Joan Fontaine, or Errol Flynn. Instead, history was made as a result of a legal fight: after winning a lawsuit against Warner Bros. in the mid-'40s, Olivia de Havilland put an end to treacherous

Notebook's 6th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2013

  • MUBI
Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2013—in theaters or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2013 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2013 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch in that perfect world we know doesn't exist but can keep dreaming of every time we go to the movies.

Civil War in the Southwest

Phoenix, Ariz. - Each year hundreds of spectators descend on Picacho Peak State Park to watch re-enactments of the Battle of Picacho Pass and the New Mexico battles of Glorieta and Val Verde. The re-enactments will be hosted at Picacho Peak State Park on Saturday, March 13 and Sunday, March 14, 2010. (See full schedule below). Unfortunately this State Park is scheduled to close on June 3, 2010 due to State funding sweeps and will be closed indefinitely after that date.

This year the Civil War of the Southwest event is being coordinated with financial support from the Arizona State Parks Foundation and Union Pacific Railroad. Volunteers from across the state will be offering their assistance during these two days so this popular re-enactment of Arizona's Civil War history can take place. "We know that few people even understand what was happening during the Civil War in Arizona and these battles bring the public together

Saddle Up, Swashbuckler

Best remembered for swashbuckling epics such as "The Adventures of Robin Hood," Australian-born star Errol Flynn also graced eight popular sagebrush sagas at the peak of his stardom.

"Virginia City" (1940), the centerpiece of the four titles collected in "The Errol Flynn Warner Bros. Westerns Collection" (out today), is a follow-up to Flynn's enormously popular Technicolor Western debut "Dodge City," which was also directed by the studio's top director, Michael Curtiz ("Casablanca," "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Mildred Pierce").

Like Flynn's other 1940 Western ("Santa Fe Trail,
