This 1940 film piqued my curiosity as a film oddity, though it would not be my cup of tea. It documents a Roman Catholic Mass, with narration by Fulton J. Sheen. For those who are curious, it can be viewed complete on YouTube in a very poor copy.

This Pabst German film was an odd booking here, but they also would show “Maedchen in Uniform” the following year.

Beginning of 1957. The Bishop of Providence went all-out condemning the film and urging Catholics not to go see it. We were specifically warned in the Catholic high school I went to that we were to keep away.

In 1949 December 6 fell on a Tuesday. So this was most likely 1949.

It was actually a 1916 serial with 20 episodes, all of which are now presumed lost.

“I Know Where I am Going” is a wondrous movie by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. I remember attending a small get-together with Powell and the Brown University Film Society members back in the 1970s during which he spoke to us about his work as a film director.

I wish I had more documentation on those two titles. IMDb was no assistance at all.
