That or simply that "two men" implied the Turks he was fighting against and so he clarified he killed two men he was working with, i.e. comrades in arms and not "Well not men per se but Arabs".

Those sessions sound like a fine way to spend a day or an evening.

An interesting examination of a genre from David Bordwell:

For those unfamiliar with the work of Kristin Thompson and David Bordwell, here's another superb piece from their site:

Invalid link on this one, FYI.

 

Edit: I think his site just crashed between when I clicked on the first link and when I tried the second. Now neither is working.

Wonderful news! I don't think Fox has an interest in a complete John Ford BD set given Twilight Time's recent release announcements, so it's fantastic to see some of his unavailable work getting released! An early Hitchcock and 2-strip Tech will be nice to have as well.

Fox certainly gave Mr. Ford his due with this release:

 

http://www.amazon.co...words=john ford

 

He was such a prolific filmmaker, beginning in 1913, and making a move from his roots in Bison and Universal to Fox c. 1920.  Three decades at Fox creates the problem that most people, even rabid fans, would find the compleat Ford too touch a financial commitment.

 

Between the availability of his Columbia, M-G-M and RKO work, we're actually in quite good shape.

Good reminder.  Is that set still worth acquiring?  Or does the answer depend on how many of the films one already has separately?

 

The Murnau/Borzage box is a treasure.

Interesting article (though Montrealers might be miffed at not being considered "international" ;) ).

 it's just that we, here in the Colonies, consider Montrealers family.

I don't want to start another thread to discuss this and since we use this thread to discuss every topic under the sun i'll post here.

 

I wasn't too happy to see a member's thread locked down and closed, i am referring to the film grain thread, even if it wasn't going anywhere fast i believe it could have been used for educational purposes with regards the subject matter and kept open, i also believe just because some members think the original poster was trolling doesn't make it so, we should have been keeping an open mind on all that and not reacting to it.

 

I am disappointed because to me this forum doesn't usually do things like that, usually it just lets the thread stay open and people eventually stop posting, i think that's the right way to handle it, closing threads is what other less liberal and more close minded forums do.

 

I hope this isn't the start of a new trend at home theater forum.

 From the HTF Rules:

 

(The emphasis in blue is mine.)

 

Moderators
17. Moderator instructions. HTF moderators (also known as "administrators") are responsible for running the forum on a day-to-day basis and enforcing these rules. Please comply with any instructions from a moderator, whether those instructions are general or specific. Failure to comply with a moderator's instructions will have serious consequences.

18. No public disagreements. Anyone arguing with a moderator regarding enforcement of forum rules and guidelines or disciplinary action will be immediately removed. This includes "indirect" argument, where a member vents about a moderator's action being "unjustified", "excessive", etc.

19. Contacting a moderator. If you have an issue with or complaint against a moderator, raise it privately in an email or private message with the moderator in question. Do not, under any circumstances, raise such issues in public postings. In addition, before contacting the forum's owners with a complaint about a moderator, remember that the owners have personally selected and place great trust in their moderators and are unlikely to be swayed by someone who complains about a moderator without even bothering to contact him or her directly. Please remain civil when dealing with moderators, whether in their official capacity or in their ordinary postings as members of HTF. Abusive or disrespectful conduct toward a moderator will not be tolerated, regardless of whether it occurs in public postings or in private communications.

General
20. We make the rules. Forum rules and guidelines are not up for debate. This is not a democracy, but rather a private forum. Anyone openly debating these rules will be removed. In addition, anyone publicly challenging or "calling out" the forum's ownership or administration on the policies or conduct of the forum will be removed.
