This was one of the great Pearl White's later films. Starting in 1910, she became the most famous film actress in the world.

Bette Davis, in perhaps her most unmannered performance, plays a teacher in a Welsh mining town who sets up a school to teach fundamentals to the villagers. One student turns out to be brilliant, and she does all she can to encourage him so as he can have a life outside of the town. This was basically the autobiography...

Clint Eastwood in his iconic role of the paradoxical Dirty Harry (basically an outlaw but deeply moral at the same time) only won the role because the originally-cast Frank Sinatra had injured his...

One of the most famous groundbreaking films of all time, and one of the films which broke down the walls of the legion of decency Production Code, which had influenced the way films had been made for more than 30 years. It was the theme and the suggestion which had the office up in arms. Though there was no nudity, the film broke many taboos and made way for the...

This film was close in spirit to the novel and is one of the finest adaptations of a Chandler book.

This is an absolutely wonderful set showing key tense moments from this bizarre...

Melodrama of the period involving a printer who falls in love with a banker's daughter. When the bank is robbed, the father puts the blame on him until the true robbers are found. Sixteen-year-old freckled-faced Wesley Barry was the star. He would become a well-known assistant director in films and television between the 1940s and 1970s, and continued to act into the 1980s.

Very likely a lost film. Fascinating are the images set in...
