More flickers:

  • 55 Days at Peking (1963) - Sever provided a clip of Charlton Heston and Ava Gardner crashing a royal shindig, as East (Robert Helpmann, in indelible pancake makeup!) meets West (David Niven), and a good time is had by all until someone messes with Chuck—and you don't want to mess with Chuck!

  • A King in New York (1957) - Sever provided two clips:  1) Charlie Chaplin gets the news that he's out of money, so he needs to think about how to rebound—then he has a tête-à-tête with Maxine Audley; 2) Chaplin does a bombastic interpretation of Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliloquy

  • Around the World in 80 Days (1956) - David Niven and Cantinflas take off in a hot air balloon to see what they can see, in a clip from this epic adventure film prepared by Sever

  • The Big Clock (1948) - Charles Laughton threatens to blacklist Ray Milland if he doesn't get his way—pay attention, since the mood swings from congenial to confrontational in a nanosecond!

  • The Conqueror (1956) - It's fortunate that this dreadful film has already been panned by so many, since I'm left almost speechless by it...almost. Enjoy deliciously horrific miscasting, laughable makeup, obtuse dialog, and leaden pacing.  John Wayne barks out orders, demands the hanging death of two guards, bullies a slave, announces his abduction of, and marriage intentions for Susan Hayward, back-talks his Mom (Agnes Moorehead), and plots new war allegiances with Pedro Armendáriz—all before breakfast. Don't choke on your popcorn!

  • Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936) - Gary Cooper makes his sanity case in court, and demonstrates that pixelatedness is rampant—watch for mean Douglass Dumbrille, Jean Arthur, and veteran actor H.B. Warner—thanks to Sever for this clip

  • People Will Talk (1951) - Physician Cary Grant, informs his patient (Jeanne Crain) that she's pregnant, and she's not happy with the news

  • The Wizard of Oz (1939) - Sever upgraded our three existing clips and added four more from this timeless film, featuring Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, Billie Burke, and Margaret Hamilton
