Depressed Heroines & Classic Film: Three on a Match

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Sep 19, 2020

Is there anything scarier than Bette Davis playing nice? I see that sunny face, that sugary smile, and I’m just waiting for the other sledgehammer to drop. It’s unnerving in films like Three on a Match (1932) that she acts like a sweetheart throughout. It’s a terrible waste, of co read more

Rachel and The Stranger (1948): Indentured Servitude

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Sep 17, 2020

It becomes increasingly apparent Rachel and The Stranger is a peculiar little movie that would have no place in the modern landscape, and not simply because RKO Studios is no longer in existence.
