1925: um ano inesquecível / 1925: an unforgettable year

AVISO: este post é muito, muito longo. Mas vale a pena ser lido / assistido.

WARNING: this post is very, very long. But it is one worth reading / watching.

1925 não foi um ano bom para o cinema. Foi um ano ótimo. Excelente. Sensacional. Os três grandes nomes da comédia muda estrelaram longas-metragens (Buster Keaton estrelou dois!), o filme mais caro do cinema mudo foi feito depois de muito atraso (Ben-Hur), uma obra de referência para aspirantes a cineastas e revolucionários surgiu na URSS (O encouraçado Potemkin), Garbo fez o filme que a traria para a América (Rua das Lágrimas) e uma obra-prima sacudiu o mundo (O Grande Desfile).

1925 wasn't a good year for film. It was an excellent year. Fantastic. Sensational. The three greats of silent comedies made feature films (Buster Keaton made two!), the most expensive silent film was releaed after a lot of delay (Ben-Hur), an essential work for wannabe filmmakers and revolutionaries was made in the USSR (Battleship Potemkin), Garbo made the film that would bring her to the US (Joyless Street) and a masterpiece shook the world (The Big Parade).

Muitos dos futuros astros e estrelas fizeram suas primeiras participações. Myrna Loy, Clark Gable, Carole Lombard estavam lá, como extras irreconhecíveis na multidão. Mas por pouco tempo. Outros tantos futuros astros nasceram em 1925: Jack Lemmon, Julie Harris, Paul Newman, Dorothy Malone, Lee Van Cleef, Joan Leslie, Farley Granger, Peter Sellers, Angela Lansbury, Richard Burton, Tony Curtis, Rock Hudson, Sammy Davis Jr, Dick Van Dyke...

Um filme bastante bom sobre arte, alma e pecados.
Este filme é de 1945, recomendo pois a grande Angela Lansbury teve um belo desempenho.

Cumprimentos, Frederico Daniel.
