Movies Came Out In (1957)
The Bridge on the River Kwai – Absolutely love this film, seen it many times. Highly recommend watching if you never have.
12 Angry Men – Saw this pretty recently, I think it holds up well. Good story, great acting. Henry Fonda delivers a great performance.
Peyton Place – Scandals rock a small New England town. Just watched this recently and thought it was very good. The only problem that I had with it: no one talked like a New Englander in it.
Sayonara – Just saw this film recently and enjoyed it quite a bit. Brando delivers a really good performance and the plot is very intriguing (post-WW2, during Korean War, American servicemen deal with the struggles of falling in love with Japanese women while stationed overseas despite it being forbidden/discouraged/illegal by Asian culture and US military ways). I would definitely recommend watching if you enjoy good acting and a decent plot.
Witness for the Prosecution – Pretty good movie. The cranky old lawyer had some good zingers and the plot had a fairly intricate twist that I admittedly didn’t see coming. I enjoyed this flick. I watched on TCM, and thought it was interesting that the movie ended with a “PSA” of sorts, informing movie watchers not to spoil the ending for those that haven’t seen the film yet. Pretty cool in a way.
