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.

Happy 100th, KNX!

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

It would be wrong to say Carole Lombard grew up with radio; the Peters family she was part of probably didn't own a radio set until she was in her early teenage years. But while it then wasn't considered as attractive a career option as motion pictures -- after all, people only heard you, didn't see read more

Announcing the 120 “Screwball” Years of Jean Arthur Blogathon!

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Sep 8, 2020

The first time I saw Jean Arthur in a film, I didn’t immediately become a fan of her. I was one of those people who was irritated by her unique voice, and my attention was overall more dragged towards Gary Cooper (the film was Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (Frank Capra, 1936)). However, I have learne read more

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Sep 7, 2020

Peter Lawford is a name people will most often associate to The Rat Pack or The Kennedys (he was married to Patricia Kennedy, JFK’s sister). Sadly, the man’s acting career was often overlooked and, along with the likes of Zsa Zsa Gabor, he was labelled “famous for being famous̶ read more

The p1202 series of photos taken of Carole Lombard during her seven-year tenure at Paramount (p1202 was Carole's player number at the studio) tantalize collectors, such as p1202-1420 above.
