    Thank you for posting this! A very interesting article – I recently watched ‘Man’s Castle’, after reading about it on the Obscure Classics blog, and would love to see it on the big screen. Although I’m on the other side of the Atlantic, I’ll bear in mind the movies in this article which I haven’t seen yet.

    I recorded “Man’s Castle” a while back when it was on TCM yet I still have not watched it. Looking at the list of films, one I really would like to see, well actually there are a few, but one in particular is “Wild Boys of the Road.”

    TCM just had “Gold Diggers of 1933” on the other day. I’ve seen it a few times already still, I want to get around to seeing it again so I could write something about it.
