British History in Film | <i>The Black Rose</i> (1950)
I couldn't find any movies about King John's son, Henry III, so I skipped ahead to his grandson, Edward. He was a tall dude for his time, so he's best known by his nickname, Edward Longshanks. The Black Rose doesn't focus on him, but he does play an importa...

Twilight Triptych: <i>Purple Rain</i> (1984), <i>Under the Cherry Moon</i> (1986), and <i>Graffiti Bridge</i> (1990)
There's no guessing the connection this time. Michael, Mark, Dave, and David get together for an impromptu look at Prince's three movies.

The Year in Movies: 1927
The King of Kings  (1927) After the heavy-handedness of Cecil B DeMille's original Ten Commandments , I was nervous about how he'd portray Jesus' story in King of Kings . And I was right to have some of those fears. HB Warner's Jesus tends to be over-seriou...
