Vidor was a pioneer and he tried his hand, with varying degrees of success, at virtually anything. As often happens with prolific film-makers, many of these I've watched only once many years ago; alas, very few of his work has made it to DVD so farPosted Image! Still, from the rest of his filmography, I wouldn't mind watching the following:


Ruby Gentry (1952)
Beyond the Forest (1949)
On Our Merry Way (1948)
Our Daily Bread (1934)
Cynara (1932)
Bird of Paradise (1932)
Street Scene (1931)
Billy the Kid (1930)
Show People (1928)
Wild Oranges (1924)

I'm just curious... how do you all find these old movies to watch. I'd like to see a few movies from the 20's that a relative of mine was in, but I don't know where to find them. Any thoughts?

Thanks.
