With how common remakes/new adaptations are in today’s entertainment, we sometimes lose sight of the inspiration behind it all. Steve’s pick of the source for Steven Spielberg’s lesser seen Always (1989), is a hidden gem lost among the clouds featuring some of the stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age and a great message about letting go amidst World War II. I enjoyed my ride with Spencer Tracy so much, another first story outing featuring him will be coming next week.
With the Oscars just happening and award season finally coming to a close, Steve thought it would be the perfect time for both of us to watch the first film to win Best Picture. That’s not an entirely accurate description of 1927’s Wings, the silent epic which clung to the majestic camera work afforded to films mid out sound, at the precipice of talkies, but it might be just enough to get you to tune in #IdBuyThatForADollar
