Smile (1975): The Miss America Satire Lost Some of Its Sheen

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Mar 12, 2020

“Smile” is a timeless hit among a plethora of classic Nat King Cole tracks. The innate warmth and the soothing nature of his vocals shine through every note. It took me many years to realize the tune was actually a Charlie Chaplin composition from City Lights later reworked with lyrics. read more

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Mar 12, 2020

Here are the rules: We will provide an "alternate title" for a classic movie and ask you to name the actual film. Most of these are pretty easy.

Noir Nook: Dame Name Noirs

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Karen Burroughs Hannsberry on Mar 12, 2020

Noir Nook: Dame Name Noirs One of my favorite things about film noir is the female characters. Not just the femmes fatales – although they, of course, are quite the selling point. But all of noir’s dames aren’t bad girls – some are just badass if you know what I mean. This month’s Noir read more

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Mar 12, 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.

48 Hrs. (1982, Walter Hill)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 12, 2020

About seventy minutes into 48 Hrs., Nick Nolte apologizes to Eddie Murphy for the racial slurs he’s been calling him since Murphy showed up in the movie. Nolte’s just doing his job, he explains, “keeping him down,” which is an unintentionally honest moment about cops and Black men. Murphy nods read more

Hunters (2020) s01e05 – At Night, All Birds are Black

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 11, 2020

I feel like “Hunters” needs a real disclaimer to explain while the show itself is fictional, the U.S. government really did import a bunch of Nazis to the United States and turned them into citizens and paid to keep them quiet and happy and fat just so we could beat the Russians to the moon or what read more


The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Mar 11, 2020

YOU MADE ME LOVE YOU is a 1933 British film starring Thelma Todd and Stanley Lupino. I happened to obtain a grey-market DVD copy of the movie. It's a title that deserves a proper American home video release, and is must-viewing for Thelma Todd fans. The story begins with Stanley Lupino as Tom and T read more

Ed Sullivan's special guest...Carole Lombard!

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

Carole Lombard's career as an actress arguably reached its apex in the closing months of 1937, when two of her films hit screens at roughly the same time -- the Technicolor "True Confession" for Selznick International, and "True Confession" for her home studio of Paramount.

David Bowie on Screen: The Linguini Incident (Richard Shepard, 1991)

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Mar 11, 2020

Unless you are a newbie here, it probably won’t be a mystery to know that, aside from classic films, my other great passion is a wonderful individual named David Bowie. People first know him as the music icon who wrote and sang Ziggy Stardust and inspired Fashion with his many transformations read more

A Terrible Night (1896, Georges Méliès)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 11, 2020

A Terrible Night had me exclaiming, “Holy shit,” when the giant bug appeared. Or when it started moving. I’m not sure if it’s always in the shot. I’m resisting the urge to go and check. The short is short—a minute—and one of director Méliès single shot films. He appears in the film as read more

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Mar 11, 2020

Citizen Canine: Dogs in the Movies Wendy Mitchell Laurence King Publishing, 2020 Is there any other animal more beloved in the movies than dogs?

Hunters (2020) s01e03 – While Visions Of Safta Danced In His Head

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 10, 2020

Maybe it’s just knowing Logan Lerman started in a YA franchise attempt (he was Percy Jackson) or because he’s got the dagger in his hand during the awesome opening titles every episode, but I wasn’t expecting him to have a whole “I feel super-guilty about killing these Nazis who are trying to read more
