    I've been reading When Blanche Met Brando about the making of A Streetcar Named Desire on stage and screen, so it's put me in the mood to watch A Streetcar Named Desire again on Blu-ray today; probably tonight when the room will be completely dark and the wonderful black and white cinematography can really shine.

    Today, I'll watch Street Angel, one of the three films that earned Janet Gaynor the first Best Actress Oscar. I have seen her other two honored performances in Seventh Heaven and Sunrise, but this will be my first viewing of Street Angel.

    Since I have no interest in the Super Bowl, I'll watch a lengthy film this evening, Blade Runner 2049 in UHD.

    Street Angel was lost for many decades (5?) and I saw it when MoMA showed it after it was found somewhere. It was a 35mm print (can't remember its exact condition), but I was enthralled by the artistry involved. Borzage at the top of his silent period. Enjoy!

    The transfer looked surprisingly good for a film this old. Janet and Charles Farrell are wonderful in their roles, but the old plot contrivance of having the women with a BIG secret hold off from telling her love the truth until she's hauled away leaving him devastated by her abandonment (that was supposed to be better than just leveling with someone she loves?) is rather annoying all these years later (though writers still use this ALL THE TIME, much to my dismay). Borzage won his directing Oscar for Seventh Heaven, but he could just as easily won it for this: it's wonderfully helmed with great nods to German expressionism.

    Stan & Ollie (DCP) Lovely film with excellent performances.
    Cold War (DCP) A private screening, alas, of an excellent film justly nominated for 2 AAs.

    @Mike Frezon iTunes has the HD Download/Stream of this film on sale for $9.99. It's a MoviesAnywhere title so if you buy it on iTunes for that price, it will show up on Vudu too in HDX. I'm going to try to watch this week.

    I watched this title on iTunes this past weekend and I enjoyed it a lot. If this was Redford's "swan song" acting-wise then he finished his acting career with a fine film.

    I finally got my copy of The Thing from Another World, and I'll be watching that one this afternoon. Tonight, with most of prime time given over to politics, I'll likely stream Roma from Netflix.

    I'll be REALLY curious to hear what you think of What They Had, Robert.

    I think it's a shame that not more people know about this film. That might have something to do with a pretty bad title, I suppose. Once you've seen the film, you "get" the title...but it's not a title that is easy to remember or tells the viewer anything about what they are going to see. I'm sure there are lots of other reasons it's not well-known, too.

    I will definitely post my thoughts on it whether in this thread and/or in my blog thread.

    I watched Roma tonight. I can see the enthusiasm for its masterful direction and exquisite cinematography. Certain sequences are gripping and unforgettable, and the unpretentious and quiet protagonist earns lots of admiration for her loving care and concern for children not her own. I couldn't begin to assess its serious consideration for the Best Picture Oscar since I haven't seen every nominee. But it wouldn't surprise me at all if it won.
