laughingrat: A detail of leaping rats from an original movie poster for the first film of Nosferatu (Default)

Normally I wouldn't post what amounts to an ad in here (at least not an ad for Amazon.com), but this pre-Code set, which I've watched before and which is legitimately excellent-quality, is on huge sale right now. Normally $50, now $13. Probably limited time, as these things are. I snapped up a copy and wanted to give fellow film peeps a heads-up.

OK, I've just watched this for the third (I think) time; my second time watching the pre-release version that was rescued from some archives by badass librarians, and which has less moralizing than the version that actually hit the theaters. Anyway, it's very inspiring, and I'm dying to talk about it, but I don't want to be all "Here's my opinion BLAH BLAH BLAH," so I thought I'd just open the floor to any sort of remarks about the movie.

OK, I will say one thing: those are some damn fabulous dresses, and the lady who plays her maid could have done very great things indeed, if it weren't for Hollywood racism holding her back. Okay, two things.

Your turn!
