Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 26

Ten alliterative film titles:

  1. The Seventh Seal
  2. Koyaanisqatsi
  3. Manhattan Murder Mystery
  4. Red River
  5. Black Brush
  6. Nanook of the North
  7. Tin Toy
  8. Manhattan Melodrama
  9. Magical Maestro
  10. King Kong

Greg Sorenson wanted to see the movie Manhattan Melodrama mentioned in a list. Manhattan Melodrama, of course, is the film John Dillinger watched just before being shot down by the Feds in front of the Biograph Theater in Chicago. But what a lot of people don't now is that shortly before he was shot, he was transported through time to the thirtieth century, where his personality was transplanted into the body of Ultra Boy. It's true! I read it in a book.

Koyaanisqatsi is pronounced KO-yah-nis-KAHT-se, by the way.
