Salmon and smiles 'Before Breakfast'

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Mar 15, 2019

Like Carole Lombard's "The Princess Comes Across" slightly later in 1936, "Love Before Breakfast" shows her in a capable comedy mood with hints of future greatness yet to come. (Such "My Man Godfrey" greatness would take place on the same Universal lot where "Breakfast" was filmed.) To promote "Brea read more

Review: My Darling Clementine (1946)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Mar 15, 2019

The first time I ever saw My Darling Clementine I couldn’t get over how unimpressive it seemed. If nothing else it certainly didn’t give off any self-aware sense of its own importance. There was nothing that struck me as outright epic and monumental. And yet this western has been a hera read more

Script girl

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Mar 14, 2019

Carole Lombard's 1934 film "Now And Forever" has a few interesting things going for it. For one thing, it teams her with Gary Cooper for the second (and last) time. For another, it's her only pairing with Shirley Temple, just before the moppet became the biggest child star in movie history.And we le read more

Without question, Hangover Square is in many respects analogous to The Lodger with the reteaming of director John Brahm with Laird Cregar and George Sanders. However, the biggest difference is that we have Cregar putting on on a new persona and losing over 100 pounds! Among other things, it forced d read more
