    Great shot of the Universal backlot. Crterion should release a Sirk box set on Blu-ray. Something like this years Lean/Coward set.

    Oh, Douglas Sirk, sometimes I think you're the only one who truly understood color in American cinema... *weeps quietly into couch as the setting sun falls upon my back*

      It is the most shattering experience of a young man's life when he awakens and quite reasonably says to himself: "I will never play The Dane." When that moment comes, one's ambition ceases.

    Not just autumn. Nothing like Sirk, any day. :)

    My fave Sirk melodrama. Rock Hudson's dialogue sounds like nothing else in film, so hushed and soothing, as if it were recorded on a Dictaphone or in a quiet study. I wonder if the dramatic music and melodramatic subplot of "Send Me No Flowers" is a subtle send up of Hudson's Sirk roles?

    Perfect timing. Sirk's ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS has a FREE showing at 7:00 p.m., Friday, November 16th, at the Long Beach CA. Film Forum, 3701 E. Willow. It's in the school auditorium. Big screen, good sound, with an informal conversation after the movie. Usually 35-50 in attendance. Add it to your list of things to do. All part of our 9 week salute to "Universal Pictures, 100 Years". Bring a friend.

    Those look amazing, and will be absolutely astonishing once it hits bluray. Some of the shots really show the desperate need for corrective color grading, and the enhanced detail of Blu-ray will make these breathtaking. When's it happening, C?
