Remembering the Movies


"Remembering the Movies" was an ongoing series, in which we looked back on films that were released 10-100 years ago on a given weekend. On this page, all the entries were gathered, entered in calendar form according to year and also organized by film title. Originally I hoped that readers would be able to look up any date and find out what was released then, but unfortunately the series only lasted half a year. Still, anyone looking for something between September in an "0" year (i.e. 9/1/50, or 9/23/70) or April in a "1" year (i.e. 4/22/41 or 4/13/91) can find out what happened in movie history that week.

Or, on the other hand, if you're looking for a brief take on a given film (pictures and often trailers or reviews as well), you can scroll through the movie titles that have appeared in the series. Oh, and the image above is appropriate because I stopped the series right before the seventieth anniversary of Citizen Kane - so that snowglobe will remain suspended just above breaking point for all time. In that spirit, freeze history and take a look at what's there; enjoy this feature.
