Old movie discoveries 2015

 watched well over 200 movies last year. Many were older movies that I discovered or finally caught up with.
Here are twelve I enjoyed.

CHAMPAGNE FOR CAESAR [1950] Ronald Coleman, the smartest man in the world, takes on Vincent Price, the most arrogant CEO in the world.

WILL PENNY [1967] Charlton Heston as a lonely ranch hand drifter.

GAMBIT [1966] Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine plan a heist and nothing goes as planned.

TRAPEZE [1956] Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis and Gina Lollobrigida swing from the trapeze – with no net!

WOMAN ON THE RUN [1950] A San Francisco noir in which a woman looks for her husband who is a suspect in a murder.

THE KING OF COMEDY [1982] Robert DeNiro is funny crazy not funny ha ha.

LONELY ARE THE BRAVE [1962] Kirk Douglas is a cowboy off-the-grid in a desperate way.

SUNFLOWER [1970] Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren get married and then war pulls them apart.

THE QUIET AMERICAN [1958] - Michael Redgrave gives the film the weight it needs to be tragic and memorable.
STARS IN MY CROWN [1950] Joel McCrae is a sheriff and a preacher; say your prayers!

YO YO [1965] Pierre Étaix and his excellent comedy of manners.

RED SKIES OF MONTANA [1952] Richard Widmark is a smoke jumper who might also be a coward.
