do look back
while watching 'night of the iguana' i was asking myself the same question over and over: why can't new black and white films glow like they used to? the only answer i came up with was another question: why do i always forget how much i love john huston movies? i know art gets 'lost' and the golden age of cinema will not return. i will stop asking the unanswerable and remain ever grateful for classics which sit on a higher shelf than sell by dated films.
when legends team up: james stewart and thelma ritter taking the law (and huge lenses) into their own hands in 'rear window.'
