    1949's "Obsession", aka "The Hidden Room". Excellent!

    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    A British comedy, "The Horse's Mouth". Quirky and silly but still quite good.

    "The Old Maid" from 1939. Damn, Bette Davis was a great actress...

    Wasn't she? One of the best. No wonder her nickname was the 5th Warner brother

    We've been working our way through the films of Billy Wilder. Just watched Sunset Boulevard. Seemed to be a bit of Hitchcock in the mix.

    Saw an interview with Wilder. I didn't know that German was his first language and that he also spoke fluent French.

    1942's "All through the Night" with a bucket full of great actors (Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre, Conrad Veidt, William Demarest,....). It seemed like an upscale Bowery Boys movie.

    One of the greatest directors ever. His Apartment is also very good. After that he goes a bit downhill...

    It's the story of Austrian Franz Jägerstätter, a conscientious objector, who refuses to fight for the Nazis in World War II.
    While there are aspects of the character a bit fanatical and frankly idiotic, the film has a spiritual arc, but most fall each frame is shot like a painting and the transition between German and English is seamless...

    Highly recommend....
