Jandy Hardesty

Jandy is especially drawn to classic, off-beat, and foreign film, but loves a good blockbuster action sequence, too. You can find her on Flickchart as faithx5. She also writes at The Frame, and co-hosts the occasional podcast Not at Odds at Row Three.

  1. Kinda makes me wish I still had TV service! I love your capsule for “Casablanca”, incidentally.

      Me too, Travis. Me too. :/ I love writing these posts, but it’s definitely a bit more bittersweet since we cut cable.

    Thanks for bringing The Wind and the Lion to my attention. I’d have missed it otherwise. Not only do I hope to complete Connery’s filmography someday, but this is about the British and Arabia, one of my favorite topics!

      I actually thought about you when I chose The Wind and the Lion for that slot. It sounds like such a David movie. I haven’t seen it either, so I’m curious to see your thoughts when you do.

      Turns out that the best thing about The Wind and the Lion is Brian Keith! I’ve always liked him, but this is my new favorite of his. It’s an OK movie, but it doesn’t rise to the level it aims for except in Keith’s scenes. What it tries to do with Connery is done better in The Man Who Would be King and Robin & Marian. There are some excellent horse scenes, though.
