June is Old School movie month and I found a great montage by jackbenny1924 on youtube. They put together a great montage of all the great old school movie actors including:
Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Paul Muni, George Raft, and George E Stone.

The music is from Danny Elfman (Oingo Boingo, Batman soundtracks, etc). This montage features the best of the best of old school and sums it up in one great video. Enjoy.

June is Old School Movie Month

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on June 2, 2009 by mobflix

Before Pesci, De Niro, and Pacino, there was Cagney, Bogart, and Robinson. June is Old School month where we will profile the movies from the early days of movies. Organized Crime Movies were not invented with the Godfather but have been around since silent films.

The roaring 20’s and the depression era of the 1930’s brought us some fantastic movies. Some of these films such as “The Public Enemy,” were cutting edge and controversial for their day. In many of these scenes, you wont see the graphic sex or violence, it is implied. But that doesn’t mean the impact is lost in these movies. They are still powerful.

So for June, we honor the Old School Black & White films, the classics.
