Re: Historial Appreciation Challenge List thread

05/26
(1) Salem ( 2015 ) TV weekly series concerning the Salem witches ( loosely based I might add ) in the time period of the 1600's. I have been surprised that this series has been so bloody for regular TV. 8.5/10

05/27
(2) Arrowhead (1953) Charlton Heston. Heston plays Ed Bannon chief of Scouts vs The Apaches. Good Calvary vs Indians film. 8/10

05/30
(3) Broken Arrow (1950) Jimmy Stewart. Tom Jeffords goes to see Cochise to talk of letting the mail go through first, then of peace with the Apaches. One of my favorite movies. 8/10

Checklist
Spoiler:
GENERAL
WHEN
Watch a film that takes place during five different centuries prior to the 20th Century (Note Century of setting):
XXX El Cid 1000s
XXX Joan of Arc 1400s
XXX Aguirre, The Wrath of God 1500s
XXX Amadeus 1700s
XXX Far From the Madding Crowd 1800s

WHERE
Watch 5 movies about historical events of different countries (Note Country of setting).
XXX Joan of Arc France
XXX Amadeus Austria
XXX El Cid Spain
--- Movie 4 (Country)
--- Movie 5 (Country)

WHO _/10
Watch at least five of the ten following subcategories:

FOLKLORE & FAITH
--- Film about prehistory
--- Film about the mythology of Antiquity (i.e., Greek gods, dramatization of Homeric poems, etc.)
--- Film about religious history (based on either recorded historical events or fables arising from Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, etc.)
XXX Film about a folk hero El Cid
XXX Film about either the Humanities (fine arts) or Sports figure/event Amadeus

HEY, THEY WERE THERE, TOO!: A LOOK AT MARGINALIZED PEOPLES
(Focus on prominent figures from history and/or depictions of their minority group's oppression, etc.)
--- Film about Women's History
--- Film about Race Relations
--- Film about the LGBTQ Community
--- Film about Religious Minority
--- Film about Immigrants

TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY
--- Watch at least two movies about the same person/event where each movie is from a different perspective (1/2)
--- Watch at least two movies about the same person/event where each movie is from a different perspective (2/2)

WAR _/10
Watch at least five of the following ten War subcategories:

--- Anti-War film
--- Military Comedy
XXX Prisoner of War/Escape film The Great Escape
--- Resistance Movement/Civilians film
--- Submarine film
--- War Spy
--- War film that was produced *during* that war
--- Film about war criminals
--- Film about veterans after the war (framing a "flashback" film doesn't count, so no Saving Private Ryan for this one)
--- Wartime propaganda film OR a film produced by the military

WESTERN _/10
Watch at least five of these ten Western subcategories:

--- The Union Pacific story. (The plot concerns construction of a railroad, a telegraph line, or some other type of modern technology or transportation.) Wagon train stories probably fall into this category.
--- The ranch story. (The plot concerns threats to the ranch from rustlers or large landowners attempting to force out the proper owners.)
--- The empire story. (The plot might involve building up a ranch empire or an oil empire from scratch, a classic rags-to-riches plot.)
--- The revenge story. (The plot often involves an elaborate chase and pursuit, but it may also include elements of the classic mystery story.)
--- The cavalry and Indian story. (The plot revolves around taming the wilderness for white settlers.)
--- The outlaw story. (The outlaw gangs dominate the action.)
--- The marshal story. (The lawman and his challenges drive the plot.)
--- "Export Western" - a Western not actually set in America. There have been numerous Westerns set in Australia, for instance. Samurai films could count for this, too, given the relationship between the two genres.
--- Western movie with a direct connection to a TV show, since Westerns were part of TV's golden age before the Space Generation
--- Neo-Western (i.e., a Western set in more contemporary times, to demonstrate the genre is still alive)

ZEITGEIST WILD CARDS
Because an argument can be made that some movies which fall outside the "obvious" scope of our challenge really are consistent with its spirit, you're permitted to watch and check off up to three optional movies of your choice.
--- Zeitgeist Wild Card #1
--- Zeitgeist Wild Card #2
--- Zeitgeist Wild Card #3

--- Film about veterans after the war (framing a "flashback" film doesn't count, so no Saving Private Ryan for this one)
--- Wartime propaganda film OR a film produced by the military

WESTERN _/10
Watch at least five of these ten Western subcategories:

--- The Union Pacific story. (The plot concerns construction of a railroad, a telegraph line, or some other type of modern technology or transportation.) Wagon train stories probably fall into this category.
--- The ranch story. (The plot concerns threats to the ranch from rustlers or large landowners attempting to force out the proper owners.)
--- The empire story. (The plot might involve building up a ranch empire or an oil empire from scratch, a classic rags-to-riches plot.)
-X- The revenge story. CAT BALLOU
-X- The cavalry and Indian story. RIVER OF NO RETURN
-X- The outlaw story. A MAN CALLED SLEDGE
--- The marshal story. (The lawman and his challenges drive the plot.)
--- "Export Western" - a Western not actually set in America. There have been numerous Westerns set in Australia, for instance. Samurai films could count for this, too, given the relationship between the two genres.
--- Western movie with a direct connection to a TV show, since Westerns were part of TV's golden age before the Space Generation
--- Neo-Western (i.e., a Western set in more contemporary times, to demonstrate the genre is still alive)

ZEITGEIST WILD CARDS
Because an argument can be made that some movies which fall outside the "obvious" scope of our challenge really are consistent with its spirit, you're permitted to watch and check off up to three optional movies of your choice.
--- Zeitgeist Wild Card #1
--- Zeitgeist Wild Card #2
--- Zeitgeist Wild Card #3

Re: Historial Appreciation Challenge List thread

2015 Historical Appreciation Challenge

2010 = 37 items
2011 = 15 items
2012 = 26 items
2013 = 7 items
2014: did not participate

* = First time viewing
DVDs unless otherwise noted


May 25
01. Corregidor (1943)* (Mill Creek Combat Classics 50 Movie Pack Disk: 11)
Released by Producers Releasing Corporation. Produced by Producers Releasing Corporation.
The fall of the Philippines PRC style, focusing on the lives and loves of group of doctors and nurses. Low budget is felt in limited battle scenes but stock footage is well used. Edgar Ulmer had a hand in the story. 5/10

02. The Lady From Chungking (1942)* (Mill Creek Combat Classics 50 Movie Pack Disk: 1)
Released by Producers Releasing Corporation. Produced by Producers Releasing Corporation.
The story of resistance fighters in a Chinese village during the Japanese invasion as they rescue downed Flying Tiger pilots and attempt to thwart the plans of a brutal Japanese general. Very well done. Anna Mae Wong is especially good as the leader of the guerrillas. 7/10


May 30
03. Feud of the Range (1939)* (Mill Creek Western Collection 250 Movie Pack Disk: 4)
Released by Metropolitan Pictures. Produced by Metropolitan Pictures.
A dishonest land speculator starts a range war so he can buy land cheap to sell to the railroad. Bob Steele is a lean and competent hero and sidekick Happy (Budd Buster) is a refreshing change, crabby and effective. Some stock footage poorly used but lots of action and a good story. 6/10

04. Frontier Justice (1936)* (Mill Creek Western Collection 250 Movie Pack Disk: 4)
Released by First Division. Produced by Diversion Pictures.
It's sheep men vs. cattle ranchers when Hoot Gibson plays the son of a rancher who returns home after his father is committed to an asylum for shooting a sheep! Gibson looks like an unlikely hero and plays the fool well but the joke is usually on the bad guys. Good action and very enjoyable. 6/10

05. Frontier Scout (1938)* (Mill Creek Western Collection 250 Movie Pack Disk: 4)
Released by Grand National Pictures. Produced by Fine Arts Film Company.
After working as a scout for General Grant during the Civil War, Wild Bill Hickok (George Houston) becomes a Marshall and is sent to investigate the disappearance of thousands of head of cattle. Al St. John is good as sidekick Whiney and has a short but funny scene with Mantan Moreland. Nothing special but fun and full of action. Wild Bill did join the Union Army and may have been a spy in Confederate territory but it doesn't seem like he ever worked directly for U.S. Grant. 5/10

--- "Export Western" - a Western not actually set in America. There have been numerous Westerns set in Australia, for instance. Samurai films could count for this, too, given the relationship between the two genres.
--- Western movie with a direct connection to a TV show, since Westerns were part of TV's golden age before the Space Generation
--- Neo-Western (i.e., a Western set in more contemporary times, to demonstrate the genre is still alive)
