THE HITCH-HIKER (1953)

A surprisingly tense thriller about two guys who pick up a hitch-hiker only to quickly discover he’s actually a serial killer, that is considered the only “classic” film noir directed by a woman.

FROM HERE TO ETERNITY (1953)

A big romantic melodrama among army guys and ladies on Hawaii, with the impending doom of Pearl Harbor hanging over everything.

SHANE (1953)

A (very) widescreen western about the consequences of violence, or something, which I would’ve enjoyed more if not for the super-whiny little kid.

ROMAN HOLIDAY (1953)

Audrey Hepburn is a princess slumming it with Gregory Peck’s American reporter in this high-class 1950s version of the same movie that Netflix has made like ten times already.
