i think they will be though
truly
am not being glib

and dont think time necessarily dictates classic anything

they are fantastic films, photographed beautifully, crafted well, evocative, telling pertinent stories of their day..they will be thought of as classics, just maybe at not first in our western culture

bbc4 film four are good for movies sometimes if you have it..

francagoestohollywood · 08/11/2007 23:37

Yes, I really enjoyed it. Gloria Swanson was positevely freaky. I enjoyed William Holden.

HairyIrene · 08/11/2007 23:43

franca, he's nice!

my sister (in her lucid moments..) and i both agree she will end up like gloria swanson or blanche from A StreetCar Named Desire...

mad wc fields, lots and lots of stan and ollie buster keaton harold loyd
abbot and costello not for me,
humphrey gregory burt kirk robert mitchum
