Haven't been able to get in here for over two weeks. Occasionally, I thought to myself, damn, I've missed a bunch of decade threads for sure. And I was having a great time with these.

I love Jean Arthur's truly screwball films. I would recommend The More the Merrier & Too Many Husbands. Similar plots, Too Many has husband Fred MacMurray sent off to war where he is presumed dead, Jean marries Melvyn Douglas. Fred returns of course. Who to choose.

More the Merrier has Jean living with roomie Charles Coburn. He has Joel McRae move in to so he can get the two of them together. Jean is already engaged to another man.

Fun stuff.

Like the list Indy. All those monsters (dracula, mummy, frankenstein, wolfman...) were terrific.

Always thought I may have had another kid somewhere out there I didn't know about

I couldn't pick a favorite Ford, but this one would be right at the top. Edna May Oliver carried out in her bed by marauding indians, another great bad guy turn by John Carradine. Great film. Mr Lincoln, Drums and Stagecoach in the same year. Then Grapes of Wrath next year. Not a bad run.

Even though it would mean I'd most likely be dead now, I'm very jealous of the generation that got to spend their childhood at the movies in the 30's. Universal monsters, Warner gangsters, Errol Flynn, pirates, Tarzan, Western B movies, Roy Rogers, serials, W.C. Fields and Laurel & Hardy. Very jealous indeed, but we did get Raquel Welch, Sean Connery as Bond and Planet of the Apes in the 60's so can't complain too much.

Mr Lincoln is the Ford film I always forget about.

I haven't seen Drums or Lincoln, unfortunately. Some big Ford blind spots for me, which is funny because I've seen a lot of very hard-to-find stuff from him like 7 Women, The Rising of the Moon, Gideon of Scotland Yard, The Sun Shines Bright, etc.

Young Mr Lincoln is ok, not one of my favorites.

Don't think I've seen these others though, maybe a long time ago. Which would you recommend Lazarus, if not all?

All. 7 Women is a great swan song, the guy definitely went out with a bang. The Sun Shines Bright is just beautiful; I'd put it in his Top 10 without blinking. And Gideon was a nice police procedural that had some suspense worthy of Hitchcock. Great color photography and London location shooting.

Thanks for the recommendation, Gump. This thread, and the others have been so great in adding films to the already expansive-must-see list I (and I'm sure others) have.

Lad you liked it. It's definitely one of my favorite French films from that period (obviously, since it was in my list...). Which version did you get, by the way? It's a shame it wasn't complete...

You might want to check out Le Million as well, which is also very good. I have yet to see Under the Roofs of Paris, but is also pretty acclaimed.

I have a soft spot for French directors that did not stay under Vichy during the war, so Clair has some points in my book.

I feel like I'm going to come back to this thread in a couple months with an updated list. Probably the 40s too. So that's something.
