Haunted House Re-Do: The Ghost Breakers (1940), Scared Stiff (1953) and more! There’s something exhilarating about haunted houses.

Death Becomes Her

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 30, 2020

Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn and Bruce Willis star in this wonderfully weird, dark comedy about vanity, revenge and immortality.

Watching 1939: Mr. Wong in Chinatown (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Oct 29, 2020

In 2011, I announced I was trying to see every film released in 1939. This new series chronicles films released in 1939 as I watch them. As we start out this blog feature, this section may become more concrete as I search for a common thread that runs throughout each film of the year. Right now, th read more

Retro TV: Carl Reiner

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Annmarie Gatti on Oct 29, 2020

Carl Reiner Television lost one of its authentic geniuses a few months ago, on June 29, when Carl Reiner died at the age of 98. Given his advanced age, this shouldn’t have been surprising, and yet it was. He seemed in good health and, as recent as the morning of his death, he was tweeting to read more

Dancing Lady (1933): Joan Crawford & Clark Gable

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Oct 29, 2020

You know the drill. In the throes of the Depression, the idle rich fritter their wealth away at such social events as striptease and then attend the ensuing night court until they get bored with the whole affair. Tod Newton (Franchot Tone) is one of their ilk, but he’s more engaged than other read more

Having a Ball with the Phantasm Sequels

Cinematic Catharsis Posted by Barry P. on Oct 29, 2020

 It’s not an exaggeration to state there was nothing else like the original Phantasm when it was unleashed upon unsuspecting audiences in 1979. Don Coscarelli’s low-budget wonder employed an almost indescribable mixture of genres and tones, all under the overarching theme of th read more

 Another home video presentation of a rare silent classic from Kino. This time it is the 1920 OUTSIDE THE LAW, co-written and directed by Tod Browning. This was an early collaboration between Browning and Lon Chaney, but it is not a tale of the macabre.

Top of the World: Even More Film Recommendations for Halloween

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 28, 2020

In 2016 and 2019, I used my blogging platform to give people ideas of films to watch during the Halloween season. I’ve decided to repeat the concept this year as I always love writing these blog posts. Plus, I’m killing two birds with one stone by making this an entry for Kristen’s read more

Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Oct 28, 2020

Out of all the Silent Era stars, Jobyna Ralston is easily among my favorites. Possessing a talent for drama and a strong knack for comedy, Ralston projected the image of a lovely female heroine in numerous films. Appearing in the first Best Picture winner Wings (1927) and frequently co-starring with read more

Robert Montgomery's identity crisis

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Oct 28, 2020

Robert Montgomery, Carole Lombard's co-star in 1941's "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," had a lone and successful career, excelling in numerous genres and in both film and television. And yet, perhaps he's slipped through the cracks of time -- many seemingly don't know who he is, or what he looked like. Perhaps h read more

Possessed (1931): Joan Crawford and The “In” Crowd

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Oct 27, 2020

We open up on the Acme Paper Box Co., which has a down-and-dirty industry strewn about its edges. If the people flooding out of the factory are any indication, this will be a dusty, grubby, little picture. Two of their employees are Al Manning (Wallace Ford) and Marian Martin (Joan Crawford). He read more
