You bet. A fascinating guy who unfortunately went down the tubes to drug addiction-- like Bela Lugosi did.

A few of my favorites: The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, and Arsenic and Old Lace.

Nice commentary. I too had M at the #13 spot. It was such a landmark film, being Lang's first talkie and Lorre's first starring role. What a doozy! The story is shocking today, so it's hard to...

Nice commentary. I agree that Travolta gave a strong performance. The story held one's interest, although it took a little long to get to the meat of it. Good cinematography as well.

Love the theme music-- from Del Shannon's Runaway (1961). Really invokes the version they used for the excellent police drama series Crime Story (1986-88) with Dennis Farina.
