Flamenco of Death - A Shot in the Dark (1964)

 
 Posted:   Sep 1, 2013 - 1:03 PM   
 By:   Mark R. Y.   (Member)

1. Zorba the Greek

2. The Pawnbroker

3. Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors

4. The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

5. A Shot in the Dark

6. The World of Henry Orient

7. Doctor Strangelove…

8. My Fair Lady

9. Sallah

10. The Pumpkin Eater

10. Red Desert

other good things: A Fistful of Dollars, Marnie, Goldfinger, Becket, Send Me No Flowers (the best Doris Day-Rock Hudson pairing), Seance on a Wet Afternoon, Man's Favorite Sport?, and my guilty pleasure - Ingmar Bergman's Now About All These Women, which left me open-mouthed and shocked like the audience for Springtime for Hitler. This film is a wacky comedy. By Ingmar Bergman.

I still need to see: Behold a Pale Horse, The Thin Red Line, The Chalk Garden, Lemonade Joe, Dragon Sky, The Luck of Ginger Coffey.

    My favo(u)rites from '64, in no particular order:

    Dr. Strangelove
    Goldfinger
    Becket
    Seance on a Wet Afternoon
    The Night of the Iguana
    A Hard Day’s Night
    Seven Days in May
    A Shot in the Dark

    If that's an unsophisticated list, well hey, I was just a kid in 1964. Nothing exotic or in a foreign language on my list. And Marnie was just a bore to me, sorry.

    1964 was not my favorite year for films by a long shot -- 1962 was phenomenal (but then, that would be a different thread!) 1963 wasn't half bad either.

    I think A Shot in the Dark was better, didnt know what year it was released in.

    My 5 favourite films of 1964, not including the obvious out-of-competition status for
    Kobayashi's KWAIDAN are :

    BEHOLD A PALE HORSE
    L'HOMME DE RIO
    PARIS WHEN IT SIZZLES
    LA PEAU DOUCE
    SEVEN DAYS IN MAY

    *bump*

    Alain Jessua's debut feature La vie à l'envers (LIFE UPSIDE DOWN) should have been within my favorites on page 1 because I realize now that it's a 1964 film (& not shown in U.S. until '65).
