Feminist Political Flicks: Together Again

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Oct 20, 2020

Together Again (1944) is one of those curious rom-coms that’s so entertaining it’s hard to understand why it isn’t well known. It pits a wised-up, small-town, widowed mayor (Irene Dunne) against her crafty father-in-law (Charles Coburn). She is devoted to her town and to commemorat read more

Jackie Cooper’s Halloween Party

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Oct 17, 2020

Lombard -- beauty by Banton

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Oct 17, 2020
