    To create the impression that Ed was having a conversation, Hilton initially used a thread technique he had employed for Lubin's earlier Mule films; in time, though, this became unnecessary. As actor Alan Young recounted: "It was initially done by putting a piece of nylon thread in his mouth. But Ed actually learned to move his lips on cue when the trainer touched his hoof. In fact, he soon learned to do it when I stopped talking during a scene! Ed was very smart."

    Huh, still an idiot at 40. Good to know!

    In your defense:
    Reports circulated during and after the show's run that the talking effect was achieved by crew members applying peanut butter to the horse's gums. Alan Young said in later interviews that he invented the story. "Al Simon and Arthur Lubin, the producers, suggested we keep the method [of making the horse appear to talk] a secret because they thought kids would be disappointed if they found out the technical details of how it was done, so I made up the peanut butter story, and everyone bought it."

    Why would people be disappointed that Mr. Ed was actually a super-smart horse who moved his lips on cue??

    Was it in this thread where someone complained about the compression on prime? We started to watch portrait of a lady on fire and there are so many artefacts going on in the dark areas of the picture and this movie seems to have a lot of those so it's really distracting.

    Before that we watched the legend of princess kaguya. Beautiful. And sad. I'm sure lady on fire will be a hoot and lift my mood...

    Also of note.

    Because I assumed the carrot joke was true, I also assumed that is how the horse in Hot to Trot talked as well.

    I watched A Knight's Tale. I think the last time i saw it I was 12 or something. It's still an absolute delight.

    I'd forgotten that the opening scene was the "singing we will rock you in the middle ages" scene.

    it's also fun to see a movie from 2001 where they just had to get a shitload of people for crowd scenes instead of cgiing them in.

    The other day I watched this video by youtuber Steve Shives about Peter Cushing's various roles in Hammer horror movies, and realizing that I hadn't seen many of those, I got a hold of Horror of Dracuia and Hound of the Baskervilles and checked out the latter last night.

    5f7WriP.png?1

    It's really good! It's not 100% faithful to the novel (which is one of my favorite books ever so I tend to be persnickety about), but mostly in ways that make sense from a filmmaking point of view, such as making more of the townsfolk act kind of secretive and suspicious to keep the viewer guessing longer. One of the other changes, making the killings more overtly Satanic with a sacrificial dagger coming into play at one point, just feels like Hammer kind of working in service of their lurid brand identity, so while it's a bit silly I can't really fault it and it doesn't ruin anything.

    It's an interesting film in that it feels both big and small at once. It's filmed in lush, rich color, which was still pretty rare in 1950s Britain, and it doesn't have the threadbare, our-country-is-still-basically-a-crater look that a lot of contemporary British movies had at that time. The sets and costumes are lavish and ornate, there are some beautiful location shots, etc. On the other hand, the cast is really small; after the initial scene at a 1600s party, you rarely get more than 3 characters on screen at a time, and there aren't very many characters or speaking parts, so the movie sometimes has that kind of claustrophobic feeling you get from a film of a play. But in a horror mystery set on a lonely isolated moor, that isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Everything's very moody, there's lots of organ music, lots of moonlight on the moor, etc. Atmosphere is probably my favorite thing in spooky movies and this has plenty of it.

    The real star of the show is of course Peter Cushing's Sherlock Holmes. I'd never seen him in the role and he's instantly rocketed to #2 on my list of the greats, right behind Jeremy Brett (the GOAT). Cushing obviously looks the part more than anyone who's ever lived, and while he doesn't have Brett's twitchy, staccato physicality, his voice and attitude are perfect; he has the arrogance of the character, but that's the easy, obvious thing that everyone goes for, and unlike most of the others, Cushing also gives us the flashes of warmth and humor that let you know that at least half the assholishness is a put-on.

    y7haGR0.png?1

    The other thing I really love is Andre Morell's Doctor Watson. I really hate the fat, buffoonish Watsons that Nigel Bruce originated, and it's why I've never really completely enjoyed the Basil Rathbone movies even though Rathbone himself is fun. I kind of thought Watson hadn't been rehabilitated until the 70s or 80s, but Morell's performance here is perfect; his Watson is smart and good-hearted and brave, his only 'flaw' simply being that he's just kind of a conventional thinker and not an intuitive genius.

    Christopher Lee is here too, as young Henry Baskerville, although I didn't recognize him at first. It's pretty wild to see him in both a basically heroic role and also as part of a love story. He plays a handsome, hot-headed youth pretty well, though!

    Anyway, this is good shit and I def recommend it both to Sherlock fans and people who just want some good clean Halloween fun.

    also, i was quite high when i watched it, but i really spent a lot of the movie thinking Paul Bettany was Quintin Smith and then thinking "no, that can't be Quinns... but"
