1918    Uncle Tom’s Cabin

Uncle Tom's Cabin was the most-filmed story of the silent film era.  This popularity was due to the continuing popularity of both the book and "Tom shows," meaning audiences were already familiar with the characters and the plot, making it easier for the film to be understood without spoken words. This 1918 version was directed and adapted by J. Searle Dawley. Also that year Marguerite Clark married New Orleans, Louisiana plantation owner Harry Palmerston Williams (1880-1936) with whom she would remain until his death. Their former mansion on St. Charles Avenue in Uptown New Orleans now houses the Milton Latter branch of the New Orleans Public Library.

1938    Jezebel

Jezebel was, in 1938, widely regarded as Warner Bros.’ “compensation” to Bette Davis for her losing the opportunity to play Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind. Resemblances to the two properties are inescapable: Jezebel heroine Julie Morrison is a headstrong Southern belle not unlike Scarlett (Julie lives in New Orleans rather than Georgia); she foolishly loves a man (played by Henry Fonda) who is betrothed to another; and she makes a public spectacle of herself by wearing an inappropriate red dress at a ball, just as Scarlett brazenly dances with Rhett Butler while still garbed in widow’s weeds. Bette Davis won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Julie Morrison; an additional Oscar went to Fay Bainter for her portrayal of the remonstrative Aunt Belle (she's the one who labels Julie a "Jezebel” at a crucial plot point). Jezebel was based on the old and oft-produced play by Owen Davis Sr.

Will a love triangle between Annette and pretty Dutch girl Gretchen (survivor of a pirates' prize) bring about Lafitte's undoing?

1958    Mardi Gras

This is a grade B musical with an implausible plot. Military cadets stage a raffle so one of them can go to the Mardi Gras and ask a French actress to be homecoming queen. Honestly! Is that not a stupid premise for a film? Pat Boone performs with complete lack of passion. Tommy Sands and Gary Crosby are incredibly obnoxious sidekicks and the Oscar-nominated song score (Bourbon Street Blues, Shenandoah, What Stonewall Jackson Said, Mardi Gras, Just Like The Pioneers, Bigger Than All Of Texas, That Man, Loyalty, I'll Remember Tonight) has only one gem in it (the love song I'll Remember Tonight) - Newman was nominated both for the song score and the jazzy, New Orleans type background scoring which ranges from mediocre to serviceable. The only things going for it are the pastel tones of the DeLuxe Color and the charming, natural and delightful performance of Christine Carere as the French actress. She is fresh and natural in the Leslie Caron style and is the only thing worth watching the film for these days. She made only 21 movies before retiring from film in 1966. Unless you are a Pat Boone fan (and this is far from his best), don't bother.

1959    The Sound and the Fury

Loosely based on the William Faulkner novel, this movie follows the lives and passions of the Compsons: a once-proud Southern family now just barely scraping by both financially and emotionally. Howard passes the time in a bottle; his brother Bengy is child in a man's body; sister Caddy has come crawling home after years of being kept by a string of "admirers". Only Jason, the cruel, cold-hearted adopted head of the family, and Quentin, who was abandoned at birth by Caddy, have the fire and the fury needed to put the family back on its feet again.

1964    Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte
            Charlotte Hollis, wealthy southern spinster, is shunned by her community for
            the grisly murder some 40 years prior of her intended, John Mayhew. Even 
            though her guilt in the matter was never proven, the townspeople liken her 
            to a modern-day Lizzie Borden. The murders are similar in nature and the 
            children even taunt her with cruel rhymes. For this reason she lives a life 
            secluded from the mainstream of society. Her needs are cared for by her 
            faithful servant, Velma. Now, progress in the guise of new highway 
            construction threatens the Hollis plantation, her home and the family 
            domicile since Civil War times. She refuses to leave when she is issued an 
            eviction notice by the Sheriff and even takes pot shots at the highwaymen 
            when they encroach upon her property line. Charlotte summons "Cousin 
            Miriam" to fight the public battle to save her home. To her chagrin, Miriam 
            has come with the intention of assisting with the packing -- not to save the

Run For Your Wife

1966    Alverez Kelly
            
Offbeat western with Holden as the Mexican-Irish Kelly who has just sold
            a herd of cattle to the
North during the Civil War. Confederate officer
            Widmark kidnaps Holden in an effort to have
the cattle redirected to the
            South. Aided by the traditional women in the midst of men intent on
            
double-crossing each other, a fierce hatred develops between the two,
            erupting into violence.
Sleepy performance by Holden is countered by an
            intensive Widmark. Based on a true Civil War
incident, the script
            occasionally wanders far afield with the cattle, who cleverly heighten the
            e
xcitement by stampeding.

1966   This Property is Condemned
            It's a hot time down south once again in this adaptation of the Tennessee
            Williams play. Wood is the overly flirtatious southern charmer who takes
            a shine to the latest tenant of her loathsome mama's boardinghouse. And
            since it's Redford, who can blame her. Things steam up when he returns
            her interest but there's trouble a'brewin'. Both leads are lovely but the
            film itself is overly southern-fried. Williams was reportedly unhappy with
            the script and wanted his name removed from the film.

1969    Easy Rider
            Slim-budget, generation-defining movie. Two young men (Billy and Wyatt) in
            late 1960s undertake a motorcycle trek throughout the Southwest in search 
            of the real essence of America. Along the way they encounter hippies, 
            rednecks, prostitutes, drugs, Jack Nicholson, and tragedy. One of the highest-
            grossing pictures of the decade, and undoubtedly an influence on two 
            generations of youth-oriented dramas, which all tried unsuccessfully to 
            duplicate the original accomplishment.  Psychedelic scenes and a great role 
            for Nicholson are added bonuses. Look for the graveyard dancing scene in 
            New Orleans. Easy Rider features one of the best '60s rock scores around, 
            including Mean Streets and The Wanderers.

1976    Obsession

Successful New Orleans businessman Michael Courtland's (Cliff
Robertson) tenth wedding anniversary celebration ends tragically when
his wife Elizabeth (Genevieve Bujoid) and their 9-year-old daughter, Amy,
have been kidnapped. In an attempt to trap the criminals, counterfeit
money is used to pay the ransom, but the plan backfires and his wife and
child die in a car accident during a chase with the police. Ten years later
while on a business trip in Italy with La Salle (John Lithgow), his partner,
Michael meets Sandra, a young woman who is an exact double of his
wife. He falls in love with her and brings her back to Louisiana to get
married. Michael's friends and business associates try to discourage his
wedding plans; they realize that Michael is infatuated with Sandra only
because she reminds him of his dead wife Elizabeth. On the eve of their
wedding, she vanishes and Michael finds a ransom note - a duplicate of
the one found ten years earlier.

1977    Return to Boggy Creek
This adventure chronicles the compassion of the huge, enigmatic ape-like
creature said to inhabit Boggy Creek. Unlike the other series entries,
which claim to be fact-based, this film is total fiction. The tale is set in a
tiny fishing village near the title tributary. A hurricane is coming and the
town prepares for it. Meanwhile a rumor circulates that a photographer
has captured the mysterious creature, believed to be a mankiller, on film.
This is surprising because the townsfolk believed that the creature
disappeared many years before. The story rouses the curiosity of a few
kids who follow the photographer back into the dark swamp.
Unfortunately, they get trapped by the storm. Fortunately, the "killer"
appears and helps them survive and return to safety.
