Filmmaker: A Diary by George Lucas, chronicling production on Coppola's The Rain People.

Thanks for the link to 'Filmmaker A Diary' I was watching the American Zoetrope feature on the supplementary disc of THX 1138 last night. It showed a few clips of George Lucas shooting this documentary.

I remember watching and enjoying Coppola's film back in the early 90s on British TV, especially Shirley Knight's performance. I've just had a look online for a DVD copy, to no avail. Is this maybe due to legal wrangling? I remember reading that its one of Coppola's own favourite works.

Just great. Totally missed this until today...

I was perusing through youtube where I stumbled upon this little gem.

Now I've never had the pleasure of seeing Make Way For Tomorrow, and now that I have a link to this movie (which as far as I know is almost impossible to find on DVD or even VHS), I am ever grateful to the person(s) who put it up for me to enjoy. I propose starting this new thread in order to share links to rare films which otherwise we do not have access to...

GOD BLESS THE INTERNET!

A few Hitchcock titles have appeared on hulu; including the 39 Steps, The Lady Vanishes, and Blackmail. Also, Bigger Than Life, His Girl Friday and Mr. Arkadin (sadly not the complete version) are now available. Even Night of the Hunter was available for a short time a few months ago, but sadly is now gone.

I'm interested in what will show up next that's worth watching, even if I have to wait out those damn commercials interspersed throughout the film. :x

I just uploaded to youtube the trailer for Ernst Lubitsch's lost film The Patriot. Equally tantalizing and depressing.

Wow, incredible, thanks. I always wanted to see that surviving bit... I like how they say "LEWIS STONE Polished Acting Genius" then show him stand still, emotion-less for a quarter of a second.

I'll ask They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? for their copy.

I went with the dwarves. I've got to ask why it doesn't get more acknowledgment?

You mean to say your grad paper isn't about rebellious dwarves? Man, you have wasted your education!

Great films, but a very pathetic experience to watch these films in 10-minute chunks on a tiny portion of a computer screen.

Or you can toggle to fullscreen, but either way, afterwards you'll probably need to make an appointment with an ophthalmologist.

Cul-de-sac now available to watch on hulu, which is great since I've been meaning to see this but its unavailability in R1 wouldn't allow me without a blind-buy.

Has anyone haeard of this site? I recently came across it when I was hunting down Ruiz films unavailable on DVD and I found a third of his oeuvre there, along with films from a lot of other notable directors.

From auteurs you can watch 4 movie preserved by Scorseses World Cinema Foundation for free. The films are:
-Dry Summer Turkey 1964 DIR Metin Erksan
-Touki Bouki Senegal 1973 DIR Djibril Diop Mambéty
-Transes Morocco 1981 DIR Ahamed El Maanouni
-The Housemaid South Korea 1960 DIR Ki-young Kim

I have watched the first half of The Housemaid last week, and it's a Hitchcockish family drama. The quality was very good in the beginning, but a good way into the movie, there was some weak scenes with a lot of dirt and soft picture.

Dry Summer was meant to be screened at last year's London Film Festival yet mysteriously vanished from the programme. Excellent news.

Dry Summer and The Housemaid (Hanyo) are worth the look. The Housemaid is very good, but goes so over the top as it progress. Dry Summer's antagonist is very captivating.
As mikkelmark noted the image quality of The Housemaid goes down in the middle section but goes back to very good at the end. Dry Summer's titles are lost, and was made from a different copies for the sound and the image, it's pretty noticable.
