Who's the fairest of them all? Carole's among the contenders

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Oct 24, 2020

"The Gay Bride" wasn't much of a movie, but this Clarence Sinclair Bull portrait of Carole Lombard in a tight-fitting gown is nothing sort of sensational. Lombard certainly ranked among the screen's great beauties in her time, but how does she rate against stars of different eras? Fairly well, accor read more

Silver Screen Standards: Tension (1949)

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Oct 23, 2020

Silver Screen Standards: Tension (1949) Although it’s not as celebrated as noir classics like The Maltese Falcon (1942) or Sunset Blvd. (1950), director John Berry’s Tension (1949) is one of my go-to picks for the genre because it packs so much punch to appreciate into 95 minutes of keenly depict read more

Carole + Rexall: A day in the sun

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Oct 23, 2020

Carole Lombard offers a fetching come-hither look -- in a swimsuit, no less -- on the cover of the July 1935 Rexall magazine. The alliance of local drug stores, dominant in the pharmaceutical industry, published this monthly; copies were sent to scores of pharmacies. This went to a drug store in Hem read more

Book Review: ‘This Life’ by Sidney Poitier

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 22, 2020

Three weeks ago, I went back to the library to return the book Jean Arthur: The Actress Nobody Knew by John Oller. I then took the opportunity to borrow another one. My choice was Sidney Poitier’s autobiography This Life which was initially published in 1980. I chose this book because, 1- Poit read more

Our Dancing Daughters (1928): Joan Crawford Ascending

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Oct 22, 2020

Our Dancing Daughters is an inflection point of silent film for the very fact it stands out for setting Joan Crawford up to be in incandescent star for generations to come. She calls upon her flapper talents and bouncy effervescence fully embodying the jazz age through the character of “Dange read more

'Libeled Lady' is going to press, or at least to Blu-ray

Happy 6th Anniversary to The Wonderful World of Cinema! + Answering a few questions

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Oct 21, 2020

Already six years ago, I decided to begin a blog, and I had no idea by then that it would go so far and that I’ll still be writing it today. I remember writing my articles at the university library back in 2014 and 2015. At the time, I was doing a screenwriting certificate at the University of read more

Alias Nick Beal (1949): Ray Milland’s a Devil

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Oct 21, 2020

This is my entry in the CMBA Politics on Film Blogathon. Alias Nick Beal handily flips the paradigm of cinematic angels in vogue with Hollywood, specifically during the 1940s. You could make a whole subgenre out of them. As its name suggests, the lynchpin character of the whole movie is Nick, thoug read more

On Blu-ray: In a Smashing Performance Spanky McFarland Steals Kentucky Kernels (1934) from Wheeler and Whoolsey

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Oct 21, 2020

All the films I previously watched starring the Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey comedy duo were from earlier in the pre-code era and as I remember heavily reliant on scantily-clad chorus girls. The 1934 production Kentucky Kernels trades in shapely legs for the cute factor, a role perfectly filled b read more

Summer of ’84

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 21, 2020

François Simard and Anouk Whissell’s 2018 film Summer of 84 is a surprisingly dark tale of American suburbia. The 80s nostalgia factor makes it kind of like a Stranger Things grounded in reality. The story of a kid across the cul-de-sac spying on his neighbor gives the film a suspenseful Rear Window read more

The (Almost) Great McGinty

Lady Eve's Reel Life Posted by The Lady Eve on Oct 21, 2020

There is Fitzgerald’s Jay Gatsby, who chased a wondrous fantasy that sprang out of his disjointed vision of the American Dream. And there is Preston Sturges’s Dan McGinty whose aspirations didn’t, at first, extend beyond the opportunities of the moment, a warm bowl of soup, a coupl read more
