  AMNH Library - Special Collections - Film List
This film was made by Commander George M. Dyott, a professional cinematographer, whose main purpose was to show the environment of India, Nepal, and Burma, and therefore be valuable to the hall preparators designing the dioramas for the AMNH Hall of South Asiatic Mammals.
This film was taken in the mountains of British Columbia, and concentrates on the arduous task of filming the North American mountain goat.
This film, taken on the coast of Texas, is primarily comprised of footage of birds.

 Amazon.com: Vertigo (Collector's Edition): DVD: Isabel Analla,Raymond Bailey,Barbara Bel Geddes,Paul Bryar,Ellen ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Vertigo is one of those films that is so good, no one at the time of release is able to appreciate it.
The documentary about the restoration of the film is very interesting and makes you realize what a job it is to restore a film.
In the film's last scene, Scottie overcomes his vertigo but not the need to avenge himself on the figure who has betrayed him and his boyish fixation.

 At-A-Glance Film Reviews: Hercules (1958)
Although as of this writing I haven't seen close to the number of Hercules films that have been over the years, mostly in Italy (sand epics like this are staples of Italian filmmaking), from what I gather this is the best of the bunch (not counting Disney's animated version).
Even this film isn't much favored, and I'm not going to go against the tide on this one.
This is the dullest, most confusing version of this story -- the story of Jason and the golden fleece told from Hercules' point of view and with him as the hero -- that I've ever seen.

Vertigo is not only the finest of Bernard Herrmann's scores written for the films of Alfred Hitchcock, but also one of the most memorable and captivating movie scores of all time.
Muir Matheson's original recording is tatty in places, but it belongs uniquely to the world of the original film, and as such I wouldn't wish it to be altered one iota.
The film's atmosphere is contained brilliantly therein, from the suspenseful and brooding ambience of the early scenes to the sweeping passion...

 Bright Lights Film Journal | Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo
The 1958 film, currently in re-release, possesses a strange symmetry that raises the question of whether Hitchcock had ulterior, perhaps mischievous, motives to his direction.
The remainder of the first half of the film is sustained by the mystery of Madeleine Elster's (Kim Novak) relationship to the long-departed Carlotta Valdez, and Scottie's falling in love with the seemingly haunted Madeleine.
But the film disavows such forces by resolving the mystery with a rational explanation, grounding the story in the worldly realm where suspense more naturally results from the indeterminism of free will, as dramatized by Scottie's uncertain choices, rather than the possibility of some karmic comeuppance, irrelevant in its random nature.

 Cowboy (1958) (Sub) - DVD film: Totaltiorden.dk   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
An interesting and nice feature of this smart film is watching the Lemmon and Ford characters evolve along the drive.
I guess I'd call it myth-busting, probably a lot more shocking in 1958 than it is today.
Why do those who support the rights of directors and complain when someone "messes" with "their" product think nothing of chopping a film to fit a televion screen.

 Kino Film: Titanic
In April, 1943, the film was banned by the Berlin censors for German release because of its terrifying scenes of panic, all too familiar to German civilians undergoing nightly Allied bombing raids.
The film was seen in Germany finally in late 1949, but banned a few months later in the Western sectors (though not in the Soviet zone, because of its unmistakable anti-British-capitalist theme).
Technically, this Titanic is an excellent catastrophe film; its shots of the ship sinking were later used by the 1958 British film without credit.

 Film Revival!
Adapted from John Barth's first novel, The End of The Road, published in 1958, the film is faithful to the book's distanced narrative.
Whereas the Doctor's race was not significant in the novel, the film's casting of James Earl Jones is central to Avakian and Southern's adaptation.
End of The Road is a raw cry of anguish over the death of sixties idealism filmed in a year when hope and fear were starkly felt by millions around the world.

 Cat On A Hot Tin Roof (1958)
The play was originally directed by film director Elia Kazan, starring Ben Gazzara, Barbara Bel Geddes, Burl Ives, and Mildred Dunnock - with Ives as the only one reprising his role in the film version.
Because of strict censorship Production Codes in the late 1950s at the height of Hollywood's concern about film content, all references to homosexuality and four-letter words were deleted, watered down, or obscured from the shocking, original play, and the ending was considerably changed from the original Tennessee Williams play.
The film opens in the middle of the night (3 am in the morning) with Brick Pollitt (Paul Newman), a good-looking but tormented, brooding, boozing, ex-high school football star, setting up hurdles on a track next to the football field of his alma mater - East Mississippi High School.

 Thunder Road
The quote, taken from a web site promoting a late 1990s video edition of the film released originally in 1958, is misleading, both in the catchy diction employed and in the use of glaring colors.
Some film historians now grudgingly call it a ‘cult favorite.’ But when it was released, it wasn’t a cult that made Thunder Road a hit, unless you want to call large sections of Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and Alabama a ‘cult.’ In that region, it was a flat-out blockbuster.”
For those who haven’t seen [the film], the subject is cliched.

It’s a dramatic reconstruction of a famous trial half a century ago in which a man was sentenced to death on the basis of nothing more than a dubious confession.
Ngoombujarra’s is one of the best performances in any film this year but perhaps the most unusual aspect of Black And White is its dissection of the Australian class system of 50 years ago.

 Amazon.com: Damn Yankees: An Original Soundtrack Recording (1958 Film) [SOUNDTRACK]: Music
Virtually intact, and with only one major cast change (Tab Hunter replacing Stephen Douglass as Joe Hardy), the show was transferred to the screen in 1958, in a splashy screen transfer that retained all the flavor and guile of the original.
This soundtrack of the 1958 film version of the Adler-Ross Broadway hit "Damn Yankees" really makes me wish I could get my hands on a copy of the film itself.
"Damn Yankees" was one of two film musicals co-produced by George Abbot and Stanley Donen, the other one being "The Pajama Game." Both pictures were marked by an exuberance that you rarely saw, even in movies of the time, and the feeling really comes through on this CD.

Walsh,though his film is very harsh,shows compassion,notably for the soldier whose wife died in child-birth and that's the final lines of the lieutenant,saved by his men:they did not do it out of fear but out of pity.
