I’m quite dismayed to see Kevin Costner isn’t represented here… clearly an oversight. He’s quite a gem as you know. ;)

I would really encourage you to see the Spencer Tracy film: Edison The Man. I think it is his best film. Great list though!

Reply

Paul June 18, 2013 at 10:27 PM

Thanks John, I will definitely look that up!

I see that is part of the Warner Archives Collection. I heard they now have a streaming service, and perhaps it’s time to check that out.

Also, if you get a chance try The Devil At 4′Oclock and Northwest Passage. Two Tracy classics. Looks like you are heavy on the Tracy/Hepburn stuff. I know I am in the minority but pretty much liked Spencer Tracy sans Hepburn. Of course with a few exceptions, Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner being their best film in my opinion.

Mr. Lucky with Cary Grant is also worth a viewing.

Paul June 19, 2013 at 4:32 PM

I am heavy on the Hepburn/ Tracy films, but mostly because they are so readily available, and I have seen them so many times. I tend to enjoy his acting more in the non-Hepburn roles. (“Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” is an exception because it is brilliant on every level.

I have seen “The Devil at 4′Oclock”, but it has been quite some time. “Northwest Passage” is a film have have been longing to see ever since I did a month of King Vidor a while back. I still haven’t found it for a “bargain” price, but I will keep looking.

“Mr. Lucky”, another Warner Archive, is on my watch list as well.

Yeah… Northwest Passage is a tremendous film. I really dig this adventure type film. Tracy just always seemed to be a natural born leader to me, something he readily displays in this classic. The film also shows the great friendship by the two characters played by Tracy and Robert Young.

Boots Malone with William Holden is a fun film if you ever get a chance to see that one.

I wonder if Cagney, Garfield or Robinson would make your HOF list? Those are my three first ballot HOFER’s. I have seen 165 plus films from that trio ncluding all of Cagney and Garfield’s flicks. Garfield and Tracy in Tortilla Flat is just a very enjoyable movie for the simple reason we get to hear them sing in here.

My Hall of Fame list originated as more of a “top ten”, and slowly I will add to those names. Thus far only William Holden has been added. James Cagney is nearing the top of my list of acting nominees- Perhaps he will make it soon. I enjoy Robinson’s work quite a bit too, and I am in desperate need of experiencing more Garfield. It is a serious oversight in my cinematic experiences.

Alright John, don’t hate me too much, but I have only seen six of these films, so I definitely have some work to do. I will start tracking these down immediately.

No “Force of Evil” on your essentials? I don’t understand, that’s the one film of his I have seen at least a dozen times!

Reply

John June 20, 2013 at 3:49 PM

OOps…. Oh man I love Force Of Evil, just an oversight on my part. The B film Force Of Evil is an A film to me! It is a NYC film and I have lived here my whole life so I related well to the buildings and surroundings in this movie. I really like Thomas Gomez too. Garfield is great as a villain. The hidden gem Out Of The Fog really shows how “bad” Garfield the actor could actually be on screen. If any actor in the history of cinema ever shouted New York City, it would be John Garfield.

Paul June 20, 2013 at 4:07 PM

I love “Force of Evil” as well. Back when I was younger, Martin Scorsese made a documentary, “A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies” in which he discussed the beauty of “Force of Evil” and John Garfield in general. I sought the film out, based solely on his recommendation, and have loved it ever since. It is a beauty of a film, and obviously a major influence on everybody’s favorite gangster film, “The Godfather”. I think if people would go back and see “Force of Evil” more often now, it would be hailed as a true masterpiece.

John June 20, 2013 at 3:53 PM

I would like to guess the films you saw? Force Of Evil, Postman, Body And Soul, The Breaking Point, The Sea Wolf and Pride Of The Marines maybe?

Reply

Paul June 20, 2013 at 4:11 PM

Off of your list I have seen “The Sea Wolf”, “Destination Tokyo”, “The Postman Always Rings Twice”, “Humoresque”, “Body and Soul” and “Gentleman’s Agreement”. I will be looking into how to get some more soon, I promise!

John June 21, 2013 at 6:35 AM

Pride Of The Marines is based on the real life story of WW2 Marine, Al Schmid. In my opinion Garfield gives the best performance of his career in this film. It really isn’t a war film but more of one of those home front war movies which can be so very good. The Best Years Of Our Lives, Since You Went Away, Tomorrow Is Forever along with Pride Of The Marines I consider the four best in the home front war flick category.

Garfield’s performance is really stirring from start to finish. This is the one Garfield film I would recommend to someone if they were just going to see only one Garfield movie in their lifetime. For me it makes my top 10 film list of all time. I hope you get to see this one soon Paul.

Paul June 21, 2013 at 3:39 PM

That sounds great. I will be looking forward to that one.

Reply

John July 25, 2013 at 6:40 PM

I have seen over 50 Cary Grant films and never thought he gave a bad performance and enjoyed every one of his films up until now. Dream Wife from 1953 with Deborah Kerr I thought was a pretty bad film, avoid it if you can.

Reply

Paul July 25, 2013 at 9:58 PM

Thanks for the heads up on that one. I haven’t seen it… and now I might just skip it completely! It’s too bad because I like Deborah Kerr too.
