The Soviet Menace . . . And the Greek Lovers
If you are a fan of old movies as I am, you have seen your share of World War II movies . . . Stories from England, from France, from Italy . . . and Greece? My memory isn't what it ever was, but I believe that this independent motion picture is the only story based entirely in Greece, and centered in Athens, weaving a story of war-time love with the tumultuous days of World War II, and the war in Athens after the war. Billed as a true story, it tells of Soviet led Communism enlarging its grip on the world even in the home of democracy, Athens, Greece. The days of world-ending threats between the U.S. and the Soviet Union in the Nuclear Cold War were yet ahead of us . . . But signs were beginning to appear as the seeds of that great cold-war conflict began, and this story seems to be one of those seeds. In this Romeo and Juliet story of Grecian love we first meet Demetri Alexander, a Greek patriot for freedom who is a double-agent during World War II, pretending to be a Nazi officer, but working with the Greek resistance. When his resistance work is discovered he is shot, but before being captured by the Gestapo he is hidden by the Greek resistance and a young girl named Zaira is given the job of escorting him through the Greek countryside on his way back to Athens. Demetri falls deeply in love with the guerrilla girl Zaira, played by an unknown actress only billed as Marianna, and never again seen in any movie or tv show. Well, when World War II ends, Demetri becomes an intelligence officer for the Greek government, and Zaira and her fellow resistance fighters become fighters who try to overthrow the government with the goal of turning Greece into a Soviet Communist nation. The two lovers are now on opposite sides . . . Both trying to desperately find the other, and failing until the street-to-street gun battle in Athens unfolds and the life and future of Greece is to be decided . . . as well as the lives of our two war-time lovers . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.

Some of my Favorites:
Probably my all time favorite movie, My Man Godfrey in 1936 not only gives us an comedic peek at the wealthiest and poorest during the Great Depression, but also was the vehicle for Carole Lombard to create the movie icon of the 'dumb blonde screwball comedy' that is a popular theme even today.
Meet John Doe - 1941: The Frank Capra classic set in the Great Depression era that pits the common man against the political masters. You can't be a fan of old movies until you watch Frank Capra's old movies. This one premiered seventy years ago, and it still stirs our emotions and thoughts now. It is as timely as if it were produced today.
Angel and the Bad Man - 1947: One of the great teachers of the Secret Law of Attraction is Dr. Joe Vitale . . . but before he was even born actor John Wayne paid for and produced this Cowboy Western that featured The Law of Attraction.
The Time of Your Life - 1948: James Cagney financed this strangely different feel-good movie, and he plays the part of Joe, a barfly that tries to live his life by making everyone around him better. I watch this one often, and try to become more like Joe every day.
Painted Faces - 1929: Comedy legend Joe E. Brown is a circus clown in a surprisingly serious role as a juror in a Christmas week murder trial who tells the other jurors a story that will change their verdicts in a pre-code drama that could not have been made a few years later.
Charade - 1963: It doesn't get much better than Cary Grant and Audry Hepburn in a tale of death, deception, spies and lost wealth as a woman tries to sort out the good guys from the bad guys in this cold-war spy thriller love story.
