    I watched a double feature last night. On BD I watched The List Of Adrian Messenger. It was an Intersting George C. Scott film. It has one of the strangest endings ever..... On DVD I watched L.A. Story with Steve Martin.

    Ryan's Daughter. I thought it was compelling, and moving. superb acting by all, especially Robert Mitchum. Who knew he cared enough to pretend to care, and actually maintain a consistent dialect? Granted the first half is a bit leisurely, but given the story and setting in Ireland circa 1910 the pacing is appropriate. And the narrative threads do meaningfully come together with several jolts in the 2nd half. The Storm Sequence is justifiably hailed as some of Lean's best work.

    The very reasons why the film was criticized is why I enjoyed it - a simple love story set against elemental (but not sentimental) forces of nature. IMO, it's a much better film than Dr. Z and Passage to India.

    I watched The Thing From Another World on BD last night. It did look good, all in all, despite the segment where they've lost the best master. It's a little grainy during that segment.

    I got Cliffhanger on UHD-BD today.

    It was a double feature for me last night. First up was Cliffhanger on UHD-BD. It looked very, very good. My second feature, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels on BD, was shut down in about the middle by a power failure. I'm gonna finish it in a short while.

    American Experience: Walt Disney

    Put this one on hold till I had a free day to watch it. Disney always reminded me of my grandfather. And the insights revealed about his character in this nearly 4 hour 2 part film mirror what I heard about my own paterfamilias. I didn't grow up a fan of Disney. Loved Bugs, Road Runner, Popeye... but Mickey Mouse? Thought he was creepy. (Slang for tacky or slipshod nowadays.) Silly Symphonies are still fun to watch and The Seven Dwarves are the only Disney characters that still bring a smile to my face but millions of Americans remain enamored of the creations of this behemoth of American entertainment. Nice 4 part streamer.
