Five ‘Private Eye’ Classic Movies · TMP

Last week’s Thursday Movie Picks was all about private investigators and though I missed it, I still wanted to share with you five private eye classic movies that I’ve seen and – mostly – loved.

For my February Blind Spot pick I figured nothing would be more fitting than one of the most famous and acclaimed romantic movies of all time, All That Heaven Allows (1955).

Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
Blind Spot 10: Bride of Frankenstein (1935), dir. James Whale

Being October, the pick for the Blind Spot Series could only be a horror movie. Here’s what I thought of the classic Bride of Frankenstein (1935).

Blind Spot 09: The Seventh Seal (1957)
Blind Spot 09: Det Sjunde Inseglet, or The Seventh Seal (1957), dir. Ingmar Bergman

For September’s Blind Spot I picked Ingmar Bergman’s classic take on religion and mortality, The Seventh Seal (1957).

Blind Spot 08: Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo (1966), dir. Sergio Leone

This month’s Blind Spot is the classic western by italian director Sergio Leone, Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo (1966). Starring Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef, it’s hailed as one the absolute best movies of all time, but did it live up to the hype? Or was I just bored out of my mind?
