Monthy Column: Noir Nook

Noir Nook: Elisha Cook I recently appeared on a podcast hosted by Carl over at the Movie Palace; the topic was film noir, and one of the questions focused on actors who frequently appeared in the features from this era.

Monthy Column: Classic Movie Travels

Classic Movie Travels: Toby Wing Martha Virginia “Toby” Wing. When thinking of some of the top stars of the 30s, Toby Wing’s name does not immediately come to mind. A chorus girl that went unbilled often, Wing was never a big name in the business. However, Wing made her mark quietly in m......

Monthy Column: Silents are Golden

Silents are Golden: Just What the Heck Was German Expressionism? Many of you have likely seen The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, or at least have seen a few famous stills.

Monthy Column: Vitaphone View

Vitaphone View: Early Talkies in Widescreen? Yup! In previous blogs, I’ve discussed just how massive and fast the transition to sound films was. It was also very expensive. Consider for example the cost of wiring over 12,000 theatres for sound. While some opted to go the disk-only route using cheap ......
