    It's surprising how many folks are unaware of the Feature Film section of the Internet Archive. It plays host to films of yesteryear that are in the public domain, and while many are just this side of the corniest B movies ever made, there are quite a few cult classics and landmark movies as well. Some with A list actors, from silent classics with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, to Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant and the Three Stooges. Looking through the recent additions today I spotted Captain Kidd with Charles Laughton and John Carradine. Now where did I put the popcorn?

    a few more decent films


    the Green Glove
    w\ Glen Ford


    and for the Sherlock Holmes fan's
    I grew up with Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes, no one else comes close
    and of course Nigel Bruce is Dr. Watson, at least the bumbling onscreen version


    Dressed to Kill

    Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon

    it was a close call if I should link the Last Man On Earth with Vincent Price
    or The Night of the Living Dead as the cult classic, but Vincent is a favorite of mine

    not to mention
    Bela Lugosi, Peter Lorre an early Alfred Hitchcock (again with Peter Lorre, who is also in Beat the Devil with Bogart), Bob Hope and Danny Kaye

    I found "the last woman on earth" but I can't find "the last man on earth"

    I've always wanted to watch night of the living dead, but whenever I go to rent a movie I always forget to grab it, so I'm downloading that now. Feels weird to download movies legally...... I like it.

    The Last Woman on Earth isnt all that good, definately the B movie genre ;)
