Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Jul 13, 2020

It’s no secret that the Hollywood Comet loves musicals. In 2010, I revealed I had seen 400 movie musicals over the course of eight years. Now that number is over 600. To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals. This week’s musical: A Swingin’ Summer read more

“Like the movies. I see you. I like you. Love at first sight.” – Jean Gabin Jean Gabin has one of the great visages of the cinema. But in making such a statement you immediately run the risk of giving the wrong impression. To actually see him on the big screen is to know what I me read more

Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Jul 13, 2020

“My father was a tailor. I used to deliver for him. I’d have to hold the clothes up high to keep them from dragging on the ground.” –Tony Curtis Tony Curtis enjoyed a long film career, in addition to appearing in the beloved comedy, Some Like It Hot (1959). Showcasing his ac read more

Caftan Woman Posted by on Jul 13, 2020

Warning: this look at The Glass Key is not a spoiler-free zone. Dashiell Hammett's novel The Glass Key was published in 1931 following its serialization in Black Mask.

Join the Lombard lobby

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 13, 2020

Carole Lombard was featured in all sorts of movie memorabilia, among them lobby cards. Take this one, for instance, from the 1931 Paramount drama "I Take This Woman." Carole's said woman, "taken" from Manhattan high society by ranch hand Gary Cooper, who's trying to persuade a skeptical Lombard with read more

Enter the Fat Dragon (2020, Tanigaki Kenji)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 13, 2020

Enter the Fat Dragon is about Hong Kong super-cop Donnie Yen (already in a pound of makeup before he puts on the fat suit, presumably to look more age appropriate for love interest Niki Chow) who goes too far one too many times and finds himself busted down to the evidence room. After Chow dumps hi read more

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

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

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

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

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
