The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 10, 2020

The best part of this episode is Dylan Baker getting pissed off Lena Olin is cutting him out of the Nazi plans and scheming to get back into them.

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Mar 10, 2020

Like nearly all of us, Carole Lombard loved ice cream, as this shot from the set of "They Knew What They Wanted" indicates.

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 9, 2020

The important series story development this episode is it turns out Logan Lerman isn’t okay with torturing and killing Nazis hiding in the United States. He’s still the same softie as in the first episode when he thought Darth Vader probably wasn’t all evil and didn’t, you know, kill a bunch read more

Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Mar 9, 2020

Jack Benny is remembered as one of the leading entertainers of the 20th century. His regular radio and television programs (which took him from the 1930s to the 1960s) had an incredible influence on the sitcom genre. Yet, if Benny’s program was important to comedy, it was important in another major read more

The Witch: Subversion (2018, Park Hoon-jung)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 9, 2020

About halfway through The Witch: Subversion, I wondered why they’d opened with a flashback showing presumably chid witch Kim Ha-na escaping from her government “doctors.” The prologue introduces evil scientist lady Jo Min-soo and her chief fixer Park Hee-soon, it introduces the secret castle-like read more

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Mar 9, 2020

Carole Lombard made a magnificent portrait subject for numerous photographers during the Golden Age, and Eugene Robert Richee was no exception. However, he had an advantage over most of his rivals -- he worked at Paramount, Carole's studio home from 1930 to 1937. Richee thus trained his lens on Lomb read more

Dead End (1937, William Wyler)

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 8, 2020

If you tilt to just the right angle, for a while you can see Dead End as the tale of three people from a poor neighborhood and how life has worked out for them as they got closer to their thirties. Humphrey Bogart grew from a “not too bad” young punk to a public enemy number one, infamous for killi read more

The Stop Button Posted by on Mar 7, 2020

Batman: Dead End goes far in validating the idea of cosplay as successful costuming for film—well, not Andrew Koenig’s Joker—but definitely the Batman outfit. Costume designer Michael MacFarlane, cinematographer Vincent E. Toto, and director Collora do figure out a way to do a “comics accurate” read more
