Possessive "its." Great pic!

...but man did she hold your attention. What a face.
Nov. 22, 2010, 5:12 p.m. CST
Looks like a shot from the movie itself.

Not to be a prick, just for factualness. Love Hawks, And Liberty Valance is a great movie with a great cast. Love The Behind The Scenes pic of the day and keep em coming. Is tomorows Star Trek 4?

It's out this month on the new Counterpoint label, from Film Score Monthly's Lukas Kendall. This is the FIRST release of the original tracks to this classic score from Golden Age composer Franz Waxman! Details here: http://tinyurl.com/24hj9uz

Ironically Swanson was too young and Holden too old for their respective parts.

You are correct. Personally, I don't ever think it is wrong to make sure that the proper artists are credited with their work.

Just being a bit of a smartass haha.

Then you can not truly call yourself a film lover.

BTSpic in your great collection by chance, Quint?
Nov. 22, 2010, 6:59 p.m. CST
It's a sad, funny, and fantastic Noir, and I recommend this movie to fans of the genre and great movies.
Nov. 22, 2010, 7:15 p.m. CST
I also love that Scorsese calls it a Horror movie, because it really friggin' is! Criterion needs to get to work on the Blu-ray.
Nov. 22, 2010, 7:52 p.m. CST
for another great picture and a great column.
Nov. 22, 2010, 8:15 p.m. CST
Official, complete score just leaked.

"Sometimes, it's fascinating to see just how bad bad writing can be. This promised to go the limit." <br><br> Also, Franz Waxman's score is superb. Much as I love it, I'm keeping the Varese re-recording.

But this is still a great movie and I love it. One of my favorites with great dialogue and acting. With great movies you either get it or you don't. Anyone who doesn't watch different movies from different eras are denying themselves some great entertainment...Sunset Boulevard, The Third Man, Citizen Kane, The Public Enemy...so many out there! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SA9lFsiut2Q

That is all.

How wrong could I have been. Best semi-adaptation of "Great Expectations" ever. Not too sure if this really is a BTS shot, but kudos Quint for tipping your hat to a classic.

Brain drain you don't like museums or classical music either do you? (and by classical music I mean led zepplin of course)

insisted a few threads back that Back to the Future sequels introduced the idea of a second-act/second movie and people weren't used to the idea. Obviously he came to Earth after The Empire Strikes Back. <p> He also confuses number of posts/thread popularity with a movie's intrinsic worth or quality. Troll of the year I think.

I wonder where the "so-called" came from as I've never referred to myself as a film expert and I don't think many have. I'm a film fan and I'd wager my film knowledge is significantly more than average, but I still feel like there's a world of movies out there waiting to be seen. And I don't know what getting a credit for a class has to do with anything other than wasting money on a worthless degree. I didn't go to college, but I've been gainfully employed writing about films for a third of my life. College isn't a prerequisite to fandom or opinion. I didn't want to be a doctor or lawyer and I was already writing for AICN in high school, so I made the choice to stick with it instead of going to school. A gamble, for sure, but it seems to have paid off.<BR><BR>Thanks for the quick correction to the rest of you guys. When I came back to reread the article after some time spent working on the Holiday Gift Guide I noticed it immediately. I feel rather stupid. If it means anything, I heard John Ford in my head as my stupid fingers typed Howard Hawks.

Thanks for the scintillating dialogue, BrainDrain. Wilder and Diamond got nothin' on you.
Nov. 23, 2010, 6:58 a.m. CST
Everyone makes mistakes, it's a part of being human. Thanks for the great work you do on your Behind the Scenes pictures column Quint. If no one else appreciates what you do... I do.

Quint, you write, "And I don't know what getting a credit for a class has to do with anything other than wasting money on a worthless degree." This seems to imply that you didn't pay to attend the class. Even auditing a class requires matriculation and payment. If you didn't pay, then what you did was not auditing; it was theft of services.

Kick-Ass references it, along with "American Beauty" and "Sin City".

Wow in every thread you are a master of prose and a scintillating conversationalist. "these pussy actors and other Hollywood douche bags have no idea have easy they have it these days." What in Gods name do you know about anything outside your dark black existence? Are you incapable of having a conversation without attacking and debasing other humans?
Nov. 23, 2010, 6:10 p.m. CST
Keep up the great series Quint!
Nov. 23, 2010, 7:59 p.m. CST
I don't believe this is a BTS shot. I'm fairly sure it was used in the film; when Norma visits the DeMille set on the studio lot to further "pitch" her film...
