I think we have the same film DNA. Jesus, that's a good list. Never saw Buckaroo Banzai, though.peacedog wrote:Logan's Run

Yeah, I'm really to a point that after 1985, I really don't need a poster.letstalkprints wrote:As the OP I appreciate the responses, many of which with I can agree. I find it striking that most movies mentioned are after the 70s. What about pre 1970s? I saw Rebecca which I certainly applaud as that is a Hitchcock classic. It would seem fitting that Durieux would make a wonderful print for that although I personally get discouraged that his editions continue to grow in numbers with so many different variant editions (i.e. Gone with the Wind). Still he would be the man. But I would like to inquire about some other pre 70 movies.
Nautilus Prints have done four Chaplin movies so far. I believe that Modern Times is next, but would love to see City Lights and A Dog's Life. What about the Marx Brothers Duck Soup or A Night at the Opera?
Have yet to seen a decent Citizen Kane (nice to see that an artist like Sperry attempted).
12 Angry Men?
Once Upon a Time in the West?
Public Enemy (Cagney)?
All I'd need is a Durieux Quiet Man.letstalkprints wrote:And one must also mention the lack of prints for John Wayne movies, many to mention, The Man Who Shot Liberty Vance, The Searchers, Stagecoach, Rio Bravo, etc.
If you are talking really early, just get a original stone litho. No artist now is going to nail it like they did back in the silent era-- plus stone lithos are amazing.letstalkprints wrote:Did they not? (Early) westerns are a scarcity in the print market. Which pictures, directors, or actors would you suggest that were more impactful in the genre?
