Beginning with the 1960s there is a rather noticeable drop-off in films I’ve seen compared to later decades-

Hope you have as much fun with it as I had. The whole "Spessart Trilogy" is worth seeing (they can be watched separately though, the ties that bind them are mostly related to the changing location - an inn the woods in the first, the haunted castle next, and an apartment complex in the third -, plus the presence of the ghosts). They all play wildly with genre conventions (the first opens with a wonderfully scary forest sequence, before turning into a cross-dressing swashbuckler romp, and the third plays with time travel and sci-fi tropes, with one of my favorite visions of the future - "Picassos come and go, but German garden gnomes will stay forever"), but the best is definitely the middle one 'The Haunted Castle', which besides being extremely entertaining (and occasionally gruesome - a grand-guignolesque sequence of decapitations and dismemberments is unforgettable), lies, beneath its amiable nature, a scathing, sharping satire with memorable characters and one-liners.
Hey peeps - my favorite part of your 60's journey has been all the great images that you and jd and others keep posting. I've been very "sixties" deficient in my watchings this year (here and there between 1917-2021, so far), but have a few lined up that excited about. I'll post 'em when I see 'em!peeptoad wrote: ↑February 6th, 2022, 6:03 pm
