I'm gonna watch corsair 31 and Alibi 29 as well. It's hard to track down these early lesser known gangster films. I'll search for years and then all of a sudden one will pop up I'd missed like "Now i'll tell" about Rothstein where it's like how did I miss this one (not that it's great just that the subject matter is). Someone needs to compile a conclusive list off all the early gangster films
Friday the 13th (1-4)
Nightmare on Elm St
Conan the Barbarian (original)
Lord of the Rings trilogy
Silent Night Deadly Night
1) The Unsinkable Molly Brown
2) Singin' in the Rain
3) Tammy and the Bachelor
4) The Mating Season
5) How the West Was Won
6) The Tender Trap
7) Susan Slept Here
8) Goodbye Charlie
9) Three Little Words (she sings "I Wanna Be Loved by You" as "Helen Kane" here)
10) Two Weeks with Love (where she and Carleton Carpenter sing "Abba Dabba Honeymoon").
Carrie Fisher Films
1-3) The First Star War Trilogy
4) The film she completed last year in the series
5) When Harry Met Sally
Both of the ladies worked together on a television film (now 17 years old!) with Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Collins, "These Old Broads". It was the first time Reynolds and Taylor appeared together on film at all, and it reminded people that Taylor had stolen Eddie Fisher (Carrie's father) from Reynolds in 1960. That marriage ended as soon as Taylor met Richard Burton in 1963 making Cleopatra. Rumor said that Taylor, Reynolds, and Fisher, when comparing notes, all concluded Eddie was something of a self-centered idiot.
Zsa Zsa Gabor Films
1) Queen of Outer Space
2) Moulin Rouge (1953 - the original with Jose Ferrer as Toulouse Lautrec, directed by John Houston)
3) Touch of Evil (1958 - Yeah, she's in it as a bordello madam, but only for a minute or so. The females in this to recall are Janet Leigh, Marlene Dietrich, and Mercedes McCambridge as a lesbian tough)
4) Boys Night Out (Zsa Zsa appears in a cameo at the tail-end of the film with actor Larry Keating playing James Garner's boss, and repeating in some dialog with him a point of view that was the basis of the film's comedy before she showed up).
5) Youngblood Hawk (a film version of the life - fictionalized - of author Thomas Wolfe (James Franciscus)).
6) Death of a Scoundrel (1955 - her only film with then husband George Sanders; he is a ruthless tycoon against everyone, whose death is the subject of the story. It happens to be the fictionalized version of the still unsolved 1955 murder of ruthless, unlikeable tycoon Sergei Rubinstein, in his Manhattan townhouse).

This Thread has been silent for a bit, so thought I would get it going again....has anyone seen a great classic that they haven't watched in years...or just had some films on their mind.. The Exorcist thread on Audio/Visual got me thinking about this again
