Matter of Life and Death, A (1946)

If you haven’t, you should watch A Matter of Life and Death. It was released in the US under the title of Stairway to Heaven. It’s a charming story about a pilot who dies after being shot down in a plane and whether love can save him. It’s got David Niven and a very cute Kim Hunter. This is a charming story. One interesting thing is that like the Wizard of Oz, it’s shot in color and black and white, but the scenes on Earth are in color and heaven is in black and white.

British Intelligence (1940)

Helene von Lorbeer is sent undercover to London to live with the family of a high-placed British official where she is to transmit steal war secrets for Germany. Starring Boris Karloff. This is a spy movie that you should like, if you like that genre. Boris Karloff plays a domestic servant involved in espionage during World War I, in a film that is filled with so many double agents that you won’t be able to figure out who is on which side until the film ends.
