        Outside of 'American Sniper' none of Eastwood's movies have been box office hits. His last bona fide box office hit was Gran Torino which he starred in. I do agree that the speech probably didn't hurt Eastwood to the magnitude some may think....You have to take into consideration that Eastwood isn't in his prime anymore and Hollywood has become a panorama of stupidity with the type of movies they maker today and the useless phony rhetoric they try to sell. Hollywood always had their favorites anyway. It's all a bunch of crap..I mean you have to laugh when Hollywood gives George Clooney a 'Lifetime Achievement Award'...For what????...His only achievement is being a puppet.

I've never understood this statement and it's not the first time I've heard someone say it. Some of the greatest films ever made are in black and white. To not watch a film because it's in B&W is bizarre. Why would anyone deprive themselves of the 1,000's of movies made in B&W. Crikey, I really must be getting old or something. ???

It's perfectly fair that you don't really understand why people say this. As I said, I do think it's a somewhat irrational perspective that I'd be happy to challenge. I think for me, I enjoy movies the most when they are totally immersive experiences. I find movies that are black and white to be far less immersive than movies in color. The sights of a movie and how it strikes me visually is an important aspect of a movie that I appreciate. It's hard for me to feel completely absorbed in a black and white movie as a result, and being completely absorbed is what I am hoping to experience when watching movies.

Speaking of old B&W films, has any seen the 1937 French film, Grand Illusion ?

Itís being shown here next Monday as part of a classic Monday movies season.

I'm usually not a fan of black and white movies,

I have to agree with you on Toni Erdmann. I found it unfunny and overlong, and the title character tiresome beyond words. (Though I must admit a German-born friend of mine loved it.)

I can't remember the context of the "naked party" ... but when I think about it now, perhaps it was inspired by the "You owe it to yourself to live a little" scene in Dirty Harry? ;)

AKA, you must advance your Hitchcock education ASAP!  :o

You might start with Rear Window or North by Northwest (both color films).  :)

Hitchcock made films in six decades, starting in the 1920s, so much of his mature production was actually in color. It's hard to go wrong with any of them.
