oooh! It's stunning how many brilliant movies the man managed to churn out, isn't it?

Stunning is the word. From farce to noir to melodrama....no one did it better. Maybe Kurosawa.

Er, just for argument's sake, Kubrick? Almost every film (agreed, he didnt make that many) was a different genre altogether.

No argument there, VB! (picked up a shiny new copy of "Paths of Glory" for a measly 4 bucks a few weeks ago!)

Time to go on a DVD hunt. The J'wock has a recent post that intersects on at least one movie.

About two previous posts ... would you rather your yoghurt culture originally had an urine sample?
And re: greatest adventure story, I tend to agree with you, but "Kidnapped" is great too. Remember the song of Alun's blade?
