Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Gary Vitacco-Robles on Jul 12, 2020

Marilyn Monroe Triumphs in Bus Stop “Hold on to your chairs, everybody, and get set for a rattling surprise,” announced crusty New York Times critic Bosely Crowther, “Marilyn Monroe has finally proved herself an actress in Bus Stop. She and the picture are swell! She gives a performance read more

Fun Questions on Classic Film

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jul 12, 2020

I’m sorry, my readers, for being so tardy with my posts. I’m still recovering from an overloaded June. But while I was buried in projects, something very nice happened! Thank you, Brittaney of The Story Enthusiast, for honoring me with the Sunshine Blogger Award! It’s an award for read more

Doctor Who (2005) s03e05 – Evolution of the Daleks

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 12, 2020

Last episode I went in pretty hard on the British actors playing Americans but I think I may have emphasized accents too much. Hugh Quarshie’s accent isn’t bad. His performance is bad, his accent is fine. Whereas Andrew Garfield’s accent is bad and his performance is bad. Though even Garfield read more

THE LAST VALLEY On Blu-ray From Kino

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jul 12, 2020

THE LAST VALLEY is a somewhat obscure historical drama released in 1971. The movie was produced, written, and directed by James Clavell. It has been recently released on home video by Kino Studio Classics. The story is set during the Thirty Years' War, a time of religious persecution and cruelty. A read more

Carole (and Hollywood) at home

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 12, 2020

Then and now, the house Carole Lombard occupied during the mid-1930s at 7953 Hollywood Boulevard has the ability to amaze...although from a 2020 perspective, that may be as much due to the history of its occupants (not just Carole, but actor Max Showalter and rock star Morrissey) than any inherent a read more

Magic Couples of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Jul 11, 2020

Movies have always reflected the hopes and dreams of the public, especially in terms of romance. Since almost every movie genre - from mysteries to swashbucklers, from war to love stories - features a leading man and a woman, it is not surprising that thousands of different screen couples exist on f read more

Floating Clouds (1955): Capturing Japan’s Post-War Zeitgeist

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 11, 2020

The Odyssey to finally get to Mikio Naruse has been a long and arduous one. I must admit, like many before me, his name carries none of the recognition we commonly lavish upon Kurosawa, Ozu, Mizoguchi, and a select few. So, for the longest time, there was no pursuit. His name was totally unknown. H read more

The Old Guard (2020, Gina Prince-Bythewood)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 11, 2020

The Old Guard is better than any of the Highlander movies (to date, I suppose) but sadly not a success. It gets relatively close to passing at least, but then the epilogue is forced, predictable (screenwriter Greg Rucka’s really obvious, he’s really episodic and he’s really obvious–Old Guard read more

Rathbone’s Flower Bill

Upload (2020) s01e09 – Update Eve

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 11, 2020

Turns out “Upload” is able to surprise me. This episode reveals the Horizon app where all the dead people live is getting an upgrade. Including having more than two seasonings, which is a heck of a long time into the show to reveal none of the digital dead people eating are tasting anything the read more

She's a 'goddess,' all right

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 11, 2020

And that ethereal image is honored in a new decoration available at etsy.The "quote" is completed on the back side:Two close-ups of the front:It's part of a series called "Microscopic Affirmations" -- altered microscope slides, read more

Monsters and Matinees: ‘The Blob’ is based on a what?!

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Toni Ruberto on Jul 11, 2020

‘The Blob’ is based on a what?! “Do you know the movie The Blob, Aunt Toni?” I’ve never heard a sweeter question than that one recently asked by my 11-year-old niece, Grace. As classic movie fans, we all hope to inspire younger generations to discover classic f read more

Backcountry (2014, Adam MacDonald)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 10, 2020

Backcountry is all about this young couple who need a weekend in the woods to realize why they’re wrong for each other. She’s a lawyer who’s interested in playing on her smartphone with her friends. The movie’s from 2014; maybe it’s supposed to be Candy Crush? Is 2014 too early for Instagram? read more

Watching 1939: Drums Along the Mohawk (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jul 10, 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

Doctor Who (2005) s03e04 – Daleks in Manhattan

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 10, 2020

So… Nicholas Briggs does do the Dalek voices in this episode. He’s been doing all of them, which is weird because the Dalek voices this episode are terrible and so… I figured it was other actors. But no. It’s Briggs. And he’s terrible. I was waiting for the Daleks to show up—they’re trying read more

One signature, four pics, (nearly) three grand

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 10, 2020

Owning a Carole Lombard autograph is a dream for many a collector. If that's yours -- and you somehow have quite a bit of money to spare -- you can get that autograph, as part of a splendid package available at etsy.com. Want proof? Take a look:Some close-ups. First, of course, her signature:It's a read more

The Stooge (1952): A Martin & Lewis Biopic?

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jul 9, 2020

If the story holds, Jerry Lewis named The Stooge among his favorites of the work he did during his famed partnership with Dean Martin. This was the sole reason for watching it and this is probably the most effective lens in considering what to make of it. The plot itself follows a show business nar read more

Books of Magic

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jul 9, 2020

Warren William as Perry. Raymond Burr will always be Perry Mason for millions of mystery fans, but Erle Stanley Gardner’s lawyer hit the big screen twenty years before the long-running TV series.
