The Black Cat (1934)

“Be brave. No matter how hopeless it all seems.”

The 1930s could be seen as a tedious time for film. The Motion Picture Production Codes in the United States, which started being strictly enforced in 1934, really limited the amount of daring cinema that was produced. 612 more words

Low-Budget Masterpiece

CAUTION: Contains “spoilers.”

Although I’m supposed to reply “Detour,” if anyone asks what my favorite Edgar G. Ulmer film might be, I respond “The Black Cat,” and when pressed for a second favorite–now “Detour” must surely be named–I respond “Bluebeard.” 578 more words

Detour (1945)

Hollywood is really missing out, because with the direction that the industry has gone there really is no space for a film like Detour to be made by conventional methods anymore. 774 more words
