Prince of Foxes (1949)
George Orson and Everett RULE!!!
Bless his heart, Tyrone Power was the cat's meow at one time, but his characters were so involved with being 'the romantic type' that they were left a bit flat. The REAL characters and great performances in this film are from Orson Welles and Everett Sloane! Incredible, indelible, and inimitable. We are introduced to a whole new side of both actors abilities. They have no trouble going over to the dark side of human nature when self-preservation and power are the ultimate goals. Go to the film immediately. Skip some of the swashbuckling; it isn't particularly inspired in my opinion, but do not miss the trebuchet and siege scenes. I must find out who set all these things up and who were the technical advisors. Delicious costuming. The film locations and sets are wonderful.
A Bullet for Joey (1955)
How often is one moved to tears by the great Edward G. or George Raft???
Spies, counter spies, a chess-playing atomic scientist, a beautiful femme fatale/former gang moll(in the process of turning her life around to match her pearl necklace mien), an adorable and bright(but naive)brunette, one consistently intuitive, equable, and unflappable detective all surrounding a self-serving and self-centered criminal named Joey (George Raft). Watch this film with unwavering attention, stop the film 5 minutes before the end, jot down your conjecture, and THEN push play. You will be rewarded. Be careful, though. If you so much as blink you will MISS the denouement ... and a most moving cinematic moment.
