Stanley Cavell’s Hot Film List

For the moviebuffs who like the 30’s and 40’s Hollywood films, here are some recommendations by Stanley Cavell which are featured rather prominently in his books. Most of them are comedies which I still haven’t seen actually. The Awful Truth is next in line. Looking forward to it.

1930’s:

It Happened One Night
Queen Christina
Mr. Deeds Goes To Town
Stella Dallas
The Awful Truth
Bringing Up Baby
Pygmalion

1940’s:

His Girl Friday
The Philadelphia Story
The Lady Eve
Letter from an Unknown Woman
Now, Voyager
Gaslight
Adam’s Rib
