"Brief Encounter" (1945) Directed by David Lean with Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson. One of the all time great love stories filmed just after World War II. In the film a man and a women, both very good people, meet by chance in railway station where they fall in love. This wonderful little film was directed by David Lean who directed such epics as "Bridge on the River Kwai," and "Lawrence of Arabia. The performances are top rate.
"Big Business" (1929) Directed by James W. Horne and Leo McCarey with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Laurel and Hardy set out to sell Christmas trees in southern California. They are not well received by the citizens and eventually go to war with a man who really doesn't want a tree. This is one of the funniest short films ever made.
"Twilight of the Ice Nymphs" (1997) Directed by Guy Maddin with Shelley Duvall and Frank Gorshin. This Canadian film takes place in a land where the sun never sets. This is a weird film made by Guy Maddin who specializes in weird films that are beautiful to look at.
