The Crowd - This silent film actually dealt with real problems of the day unlike many escapist films of the time. The story wasn't terribly complicated but King Vidor did a great job making the audience care about the characters. 8/10

The Prisoner with Alec Guinness - A priest is wrongfully arrested for treason and the police try to force a confession out of him. Guinness was definitely the highlight but Jack Hawkins also did a fine job as the interrogator. The ending is haunting as well. 7/10

Beyond Tomorrow - A minor 1940's fantasy film in which three old men die in a plane crash and their ghosts try to get a young couple together. It was pretty sappy at times but still entertaining. 5/10
