Disney’s The Lady & The Tramp: The Signature Collection

The Signature Collection from Walt Disney adds another classic title to its pantheon as today, the 1955 animated tale, The Lady and The Tramp is released, and the iconic meatball scene has never looked better. I last watched this film back in 2015 when I was reviewing it for the blog, and watching it then…

Boudu Saved From Drowning (1932) – Jean Renoir

DK Books brings me to an old film from Jean Renoir as I move onto the next title in The Movie Book. Having previously covered 1939’s The Rules of the Game, I moved right on to the What Else to Watch section of the title, and while other titles on the list had already been…

Limelight (1952) – Charlie Chaplin

  Great Movies – !00 Great Years of Film brings me the last recommendation tie-in with Chaplin’s Gold Rush, his final American film, Limelight.

The Gold Rush (1925) – Charlie Chaplin

  Welcome to a new book for me to work my way through , this time it’s Great Movies, 100 Years of Film. The book itself is broken into genres and each genre has about 10 films, but with each recommendation (many of which I’ve seen), there are 5 or more additional titles that tie-in…
