I haven't seen any of 'em, aside from Night of the Living Dead.



If I was gonna check out of any of these, I'd go for Reefer Madness, Last Woman on Earth, D.O.A., Bride of the Gorilla, Abraham Lincoln, and Dressed to Kill. That is, if I didn't dread the thought of watching a film in a 320x240 window on my computer. Still, that's pretty cool that they have all these public-domain films available for free download.

Yeah, that's true... I don't think I'd mind it that much though, I'll prolly DL either REEFER MADNESS or D.O.A. if anything.

I'm not a big Three Stooges fan, but Sing a Song of Six Pants is one of my favorites. (I actually just watched it on DVD this morning!)

Yeah, I'm not much of a Three Stooges fan, either. I guess I'm more of an Abbott and Costello guy.

I'll check out Night of the Living Dead. I've only seen the 1990 version. Crying or Very sad

I downloaded Reefer Madness but whenever I try to play it, it crashes my computer.

I just watched Sherlock Holmes in Dressed to Kill two nights ago, and it's a rather stodgy entry in the Rathbone/Bruce Holmes series. (Especially if you're a fan of Doyle's originals, which I am.) Go for D.O.A.!!!

I last saw the 1950 D.O.A. eight years ago, but I remember enjoying O'Brien's performance while still finding the overall script unsatisfying. As I recall, few of the supporting characters were particularly memorable. It's been awhile, though, so take that with a grain of salt.
