Battleground (1949): Bastogne and The Screaming Eagles

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Dec 1, 2020

“We must never again let any force dedicated to a super-race or a super-idea, or super-anything become strong enough to impose itself upon a free world. We must be smart enough and tough enough in the beginning to put out the fire before it starts spreading.”  ~ Leon Ames as the Chaplai read more

Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Dec 1, 2020

“As a star, I would have to apply myself more strenuously than I have ever worked in my life. There would be, first of all, the obligation on my part to equip myself for whatever role I was called upon to portray. That would mean continuous study and preparation. The business of being a star is seri read more

CAFTAN WOMAN'S CHOICE: ONE FOR DECEMBER ON TCM

Caftan Woman Posted by on Nov 30, 2020

Perhaps if I told you that Robert Greig played the butler to a wealthy screwball family in The Cheaters that would be enough for you to agree with my December choice. However, if I then told you that halfway through the movie Greig disappears (he does leave a note), you might decide to forego the pl read more

A p1202 rarity

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 30, 2020

Meet p1202-1277, one of Carole Lombard's rarer portraits in the Paramount series. It's from 1935 or '36, and shows the star in a mink stole:The rear of the photo provides information, too, but it's of a somewhat jarring nature:It's stamped with a date of June 2, 1944, two years after Lombard's death read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 30: The Hitch-Hiker (1953)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 30, 2020

Can you believe that this is the last day of Noirvember? Seriously, where does the time go? Ah, well – no use moaning over spent months. We’ve got more important things to do. I’m wrapping up my YouTube noir series with The Hitch-Hiker (1953). Interestingly (to me, at least), it’s my second read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 29: Try and Get Me! (1950)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 29, 2020

Today, I’m recommending a movie that I’ve only seen once and, frankly, I don’t know if I’ll ever see it again. It’s not because it’s not a first-rate noir. It is. It’s just that it’s often hard to take – especially toward the end. But please don’t let that stop you from checking read more

November Quick Picks and Pans

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

 Scarlet Street (1945) Fritz Lang’s cynical noir drama is as bleak as they come, taking us to the darkest corners of human nature. Edward G. Robinson stars as Christopher Cross, a meek, middle-aged bank teller stuck in a loveless marriage to a domineering widow (Rosalind Ivan). His life t read more

You'd think she was porcelain

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 29, 2020

At her best, Carole Lombard could look incredibly ethereal. This image makes that evident, as the star looks to be fragile, constructed of porcelain or some other delicate item. But no, this is the flesh-and-blood Carole, derived from a mid-1930s photo and a postcard measuring 3 1/2" x 5 1/2". Accor read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 28: City That Never Sleeps (1953)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 28, 2020

You don’t hear much about City That Never Sleeps (1953), and that’s a real shame. It’s got a lot of good stuff, from great use of shadows to voiceover narration (okay, it’s the city talking, but whatever). It’s also chock full of dark, cynical, and duplicitous characters, including a magician read more

It Always Rains on Sunday (1947): Drizzly British Noir

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 28, 2020

“Lovely weather for a manhunt.” Childhood vacations to England have given me a lifelong cache of fond memories of the British Isles. Tea and scones conjure up only good things as do Cathedrals and cobblestone streets. Somehow even the daily drizzle, when it feels quintessentially Englis read more
