Three-Dimensional Chess — shadowplay (Reblog)

I read Walter Tevis’s The Queen’s Gambit years ago and loved it. His other filmed books, The Hustler and The Man Who Fell to Earth are great too, and made good movies but the books are still worthy of investigation. The Color of Money doesn’t really have anything much in common with Scorsese’s film and […]Three-Dimensional … Continue reading Three-Dimensional Chess — shadowplay (Reblog)

To Have And Have Not (1944) — Ticket 2 Ride (Reblog)

One of Humphrey Bogart’s most famous films, and the one where he flirts with Lauren Bacall whenever they are on screen. This has always been Casablanca Lite, in my book. Both films have heavy atmosphere, quirky characters, a piano-playing pal, Nazis, a world-weary American who doesn’t want to dirty his hands with current politics.
