With the Centennial of WWI in a few days, I thought it’s only fitting to visit a genre that has been around since the beginning of film; in fact the first film ever to win an Academy Award was WINGS (1927), a romantic action-war picture.
10 questions alone can’t do it justice of course, but we’ll try and look at some different aspect of War in film.
I’m keeping it fairly simple this time, I hope we can talk some more about this long running and fascinating genre a future MOVIE TALK ON SUNDAY.
Here is how MOVIE TALK ON SUNDAY works:
It starts Sundays at 8pm GMT and the host starts posting a question every 10 minutes.
