    2 excellent choices!

    That original Papillon movie is so much better than the new remake of this past year or so.

    Midnight Express is a classic. I made my 19 year old son watch it before he and his gf backpacked through Turkey back in the 90s!

        And yet, in my opinion anyway, the glorious skin tones in Technicolor have yet to be matched by any imaging technology since.

          The Ten Commandments in HD is amazing for the age of the movie.

            Now getting one classic in 10 years is a rarity

            And Mel's still working hard at a soon to be 93
            The sheriff is near.

            Dont think we will be seeing movies with lines like that any time soon.

              It was digitally re-colour corrected in the HD version. Some purists complain it was made more orange-toned and strayed from the original. BluRay on the left compared to DVD.

              • I recently watched ‘His Girl Friday’. A smart, interestingly written and at times, improvised film that broke the record at the time for words spoken per minute.

                • Doris Day just passed. Quite an legendary singer with several classic songs and movies.

                  I could post a famous song (que sera sera) but here’s a lesser known Christmas tune from the ‘Winning Team’ from 1952 (can you spot a future president?)
