Synopsis: "I am against censorship-1'm also against Deep Throat." "Lubitsch made the very best of musical movies...The. Astaire-Rogers 'shows of the Thirties-and I'm quite fond' of Mark Sandrich's Top Hat and George Stevens' Swing Time-seem tawdry by comparison." "John Ford's Stagecoach was the first 'adult' Western." "Selznick's contribution to American movies was important...but he was not an artist. He never went all the way. Capra was and did." "Howard Hawks' Only Angels Have Wings brings to fruition most of the Hawksian themes of friendship among men which he'd been developing since 1928 and which he continued to explore in later films." "Riot in Cell Block 11 is still the finest prison picture to come out of the U.S." "John Wayne's performances in... (Red River, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Rio Bravo, Hatari!, El Dorado, Rio Grande, The Quiet Man, The Searchers, The Wings of Eagles, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance) rate with the finest examples of movie acting."
