Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Nov 23, 2020

After her breakout success in Roman Holiday (1953), Audrey Hepburn cemented her image as a charming romantic heroine with Sabrina (1954), in which she plays a beautiful ingenue who pines for affection from a wealthy, older man. Along with its love story, Sabrina offers a very tame exploration of ups read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 22: The Great Flamarion (1945)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 22, 2020

I love, love, love today’s YouTube noir pick: The Great Flamarion (1945). It’s another one of those films that, for decades, was completely off my noir radar. (Noir-dar?) Then, a few years ago, I was sent a copy of the movie by a fellow noir lover who I met through an Internet message board. And read more

The 7th Continent - a lost world shut off by a wall of ice, roamed by beasts unknown to Science, ruled by men lost to History, doomed to vanish in a chaos of leaping flames! This was the tagline to The People that Time Forgot, the sequel to The Land that Time Forgot ( 1975 ).

Quai Des Orfevres (1947): Directed by Henry-Georges Clouzot

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 21, 2020

Unearthing Quai Des Orfevres is a glorious discovery of post-war French cinema. Because Henry-Georges Clouzot is always a man I heedlessly clump together with Jacques Becker when it comes to French film history. Not because of an immediate connection but, on the contrary, it’s the very thinne read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 21: 99 River Street (1953)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 21, 2020

For my money, John Payne is one of the most underrated stars of the film noir era. Like his fellow noir vet Dick Powell, Payne’s earlier career consisted of a number of comedies and musicals – lightweight vehicles that seemed a perfect fit for his good looks and breezy air. But in the late 1940s, read more

Goldie -- soon to be Mrs. Claus -- turns 75 today

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 21, 2020

It's hard to believe that Goldie Hawn -- one of the greatest of comic actresses, and a worthy heir to the Carole Lombard tradition -- turns 75 today. An incredible talent who has spread joy to millions, both on and off screen, Hawn has been part of our culture for more than half a century. I adore h read more

Classic Films in Focus: THAT TOUCH OF MINK (1962)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Nov 21, 2020

 It's hard to imagine a more charming duo than Cary Grant and Doris Day, and That Touch of Mink (1962) is a perfectly entertaining example of their respective talents in the romantic comedy genre, even if both stars made more memorable outings in other pictures. Director Delbert Mann's comedy o read more

Lombard & Powell? Back cover, 1932? That's Italian!

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 20, 2020

Carole Lombard and William Powell look pretty stylish on their Honolulu honeymoon, don't they? So much so that in early 1932, the Italian fan magazine Zenit placed the couple on the cover...the back cover, mind you, using a still from one of their Paramount films. Honors on the front went to the lov read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 20: Fourteen Hours (1951)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 20, 2020

Finding Fourteen Hours (1951) was a happy accident. Before a couple of years ago, I’d never even heard of it before – despite the fact that the cast includes noir vets Richard Basehart, Paul Douglas, Agnes Moorehead, Jeff Corey, and Howard da Silva. I don’t even remember how I happened to stumble read more

The Story of G.I. Joe (1945): Robert Mitchum Shows His Chops

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 19, 2020

Charles M. Schultz was one of the great memorializers of WWII in that he kept events like the D-Day invasion or the art of Bill Maudlin in the public forum for as long as Peanuts was syndicated. If I remember correctly, it was also through his strip I first became aware of the name Ernie Pyle. It&# read more

The Gene Tierney Centenary, Pt. 1: "I felt luck was with me"

Lady Eve's Reel Life Posted by The Lady Eve on Nov 19, 2020

 Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Gene Tierney's birth on November 19, 1920 ~Marlene Dietrich once said, “The relationship between the make-up man and the film actor is that of accomplices in crime.” Amusing, and probably true of some whose faces have graced the silver R read more

Silents are Golden: “For the Sake of the Picture” – The Dangerous Era of Silent Filmmaking

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Lea Stans on Nov 19, 2020

Silents are Golden: “For the Sake of the Picture” – The Dangerous Era of Silent Filmmaking Most of us are familiar with the incredible stuntwork done for the 1910s and 1920s films – often by the main stars themselves, such as Douglas Fairbanks or Harold Lloyd.

Potential scriptwriters, 'Hop' to it

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 19, 2020

I often wonder how Carole Lombard would fare an actress in 2020 (in our hypothetical Hollywood of today, there's no such thing as coronavirus). While technological advances have arguably removed much of the soul from moviemaking, other leaps forward have made the process of creating a film infinitel read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 19: Pitfall (1948)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 19, 2020

Today’s pick is my third Lizabeth Scott starrer of the month: Pitfall (1948). Do I need to even bother saying that it’s a favorite? The film boasts a stellar cast that, in addition to Scott, includes Dick Powell, Jane Wyatt, and Raymond Burr; brisk direction by Andre De Toth; and an engaging story read more
