Watching 1939: Mystery Plane (1939)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Nov 19, 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. Right now, th read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 18: Raw Deal (1948)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 18, 2020

I never consider Raw Deal (1948) when thinking about my favorite noirs. And yet, every time I see it, I’m reminded of how good it is. Maybe the reason that Raw Deal doesn’t make it onto any of my Top 10 lists is because, to me, its parts are greater than the whole. Not that it’s not a first-rate read more

Carole and Coop, "Now And Forever," plus Carla's book on TCM

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 18, 2020

There are many photos from Carole Lombard's 1934 drama "Now And Forever" with Gary Cooper, but the above pic is new to me. It's vintage, as information on the rear makes evident:While neither Shirley Temple nor Sir Guy Standing are in the photo, both are listed.This 8" x 10" sells for $249.99, thoug read more

Classic Movies on CBS All Access

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Nov 18, 2020

We picked up CBS All Access to watch the new Star Trek shows, which are worth the price of the service by themselves, but I've been pleasantly surprised by the classic movie offerings in their library. Streaming services have not generally been interested in the classic film audience, and those that read more

Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944): WWII Written by Dalton Trumbo

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 17, 2020

“One-hundred and thirty-one days after December 7, 1941, a handful of young men, who had never dreamed of glory, struck the first blow at the heart of Japan. This is their true story we tell here.” It’s easy enough to lump Air Force and Destination Tokyo with this subsequent film read more

YouTube Noir — Noirvember Day 17: Brute Force (1947)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 17, 2020

Brute Force (1947) is not your typical film noir. Almost entirely set inside the confines of a maximum security prison, there’re no rainswept city streets, no anti-hero detectives, and the two femmes fatales are on screen a total of about three minutes. But you’ll be hard-pressed to find a darker read more

A 'Look' at "They Knew What They Wanted"

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 17, 2020

"They Knew What They Wanted" was Carole Lombard's second film with Charles Laughton, but it was a far cry from their late 1933 Paramount potboiler "White Woman." This was made for RKO in 1940, an adaptation of a Pulitzer Prize-winning play whose racy subject matter (waitress falls for yardhand whom read more

Musical Monday: Rhythm Serenade (1943)

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on Nov 16, 2020

It’s no secret that the Hollywood Comet loves musicals. In 2010, I revealed I had seen 400 movie musicals over the course of eight years. Now that number is over 600. To celebrate and share this musical love, here is my weekly feature about musicals. This week’s musical: Rhythm Serenade (1943) – read more

Meet Miss Philbrooke

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 16, 2020

"The Racketeer," released in the fall of 1929, was the third and final all-talkie Carole Lombard made for Pathe Pictures before she and good friend Diane Ellis were dismissed from the studio amid circumstances still never entirely explained. Lombard (shown above with lead Robert Armstrong and Jeanet read more

YouTube Noir: Noirvember Day 16: Scarlet Street (1945)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 16, 2020

Dan Duryea. Joan Bennett. Edward G. Robinson. Fritz Lang. Talk about a winning combination. They’re the principals who brought to life yet another one of my favorite noirs, Scarlet Street (1945). It’s been in the public domain for so long that I’ll be surprised if anyone’s left who hasn’t read more

Classic Films in Focus: HELLO, DOLLY! (1969)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Nov 16, 2020

Big, colorful musicals are my favorite antidote to troubled times. As much as I enjoy the black-and-white productions of the 30s, there's just something about a bright, splashy palette that makes everything else in a musical seem more cheerful. That's certainly the case with Hello, Dolly! (1969), wh read more

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Nov 15, 2020

 HAND OF DEATH is a 1962 sci-fi/horror film, released by 20th Century Fox. The movie stars John Agar, but instead of his usual act of fighting monsters, here Agar becomes one. Agar plays Alex Marsh, a scientist who is experimenting with nerve gases.

YouTube Noir: Noirvember Day 15: Murder By Contract (1958)

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 15, 2020

Until recently, Vince Edwards was on my radar for only two reasons: he played Dr. Ben Casey on TV, and he co-starred in one of my favorite noirs, The Killing (1956), which I recommended for YouTube viewing earlier this month. And then I saw Murder By Contract (1958). There’s so much to say about thi read more

'Allah' be thy name

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 15, 2020

The Carole Lombard of the late 1920s was making a name for herself in Hollywood, something that had been delayed a year or two after an automobile accident sidelined her from the industry for a while. By 1928, a star in Mack Sennett's late run of two-reelers complemented with occasional work at Path read more
