Hello all, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted Netflix titles, but it’s been a few weeks since more than a couple of retro movies have gone streaming.
  • The Iron Mask (1929) Douglas Fairbanks, possibly the most active and agile man in movie history, stars in this silent version of The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexander Dumas. Dumas wrote The Three Musketeers and they are in this story also.
  • Urban Cowboy (1980) Retrospace just had a question about this time in American history. John Travolta rode every fad successfully for the late ’70s early ’80s, then disappeared for no good reason. I’m glad he’s back.
  • Play Misty for Me (1971) Clint Eastwood’s first directing gig. My mom could never hear this music without getting freaked out.
  • Rocky III (1982) The one with Mr. T.
  • Rocky IV (1985) The one with Dolf Lundgren as a Soviet.
  • Rocky V (1990) Rocky’s broke. The only Rocky film not in Instant is II.
  • The Front Page (1931) Lewis Milestone directs this film which Howard Hawks later remade as His Girl Friday by making one of the characters a female. There is a 1974 version with Walter Mathau and Jack Lemmon also steaming.
  • Gung Ho! (1943) Has Robert Mitchum, Randolph Scott, and Sam Levine. About Marines in WWII.
  • In Old California (1942) John Wayne.
  • Our Town (1940) William Holden and Martha Scott in a depressing story if I remember the play correctly.
  • Svengali (1931) Classic with John Barrymore as an older man who controls a young lady.
  • Apocalypse Now (1979) The original version of this head trip movie. Apocalypse Now Redux is also streaming.
  • Black Rain (1989) Michael Douglas and Andy Garcia with Ken Takakura.
  • Brideshead Revisited (1981) Jeremy Irons in a miniseries based on the Evelyn Waugh novel.
  • The Escape Artist (1982) Never heard of it, but it looks exactly like something I would have loved in 1982.
  • The Golden Child (1986) One of the few 1980s Eddie Murphy movies I haven’t seen.
  • Hammett (1982) Interesting looking film. Wim Wenders wonders what it would be like it author Dashiell Hammett (The Maltese Falcon) were to actually be a detective. Definite add.
  • Joe Kidd (1972) Clint Eastwood, the Mighty Robert Duvall, and John Saxon directed by John Sturges. How can you go wrong?
  • The Sting II (1983) The Mighty Jackie Gleason.
  • Superfly (1972) Blaxploitation at its best.
