Singing In The Rain. I admit that I have been deep diving into pure escapism in my movies the past couple of weeks.

Interesting: neither James M Cain or Raymond Chandler get their name on the poster.

I've always thought that Curtiz was under appreciated especially considering he directed Casablanca.

I agree, I find Curtiz's films always fascinating to watch. Think the problem might be that Curtiz's filmography is so vast and varied, it's hard to get a handle on.

Like Fred Zinnemann, he had no distinguishable style or themes.  Just great story telling skills.

 Out of the 150+ features movies that Curtiz has directed,  I never came across to more than 5 of them in dvd stores. Another under-appreciated director:

Red Dust. Clark Gable & Jean Harlow make a incendiary couple, definitely a Pre-Code movie.

Sgt. Bilko. To show you how slow on the up take I am, it was only this afternoon, watching this movie for about the 20th time, that I got the name Bilk-o, that he bilks people out of their money. I don't know I missed that one all these years. It's a dumb movie, but I really enjoy it.
