There's a Spy in Stalag 17

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Nov 24, 2019

William Holden as Sefton. Considering it was made by one of Hollywood's most versatile directors, it's no surprise that Billy Wilder's Stalag 17 flows back and forth effortlessly between drama and comedy. Set in a German prisoner of war camp during World War II, the dramatic storyline foc read more

The Naked City (1948): One Out of Eight Million Stories

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 23, 2019

The Naked City begins inauspiciously enough with a flyover of New York and an introduction by producer Mark Hellinger. It seems like we’ve seen this countless times before. It’s almost like a stock image. And yet in the case of this picture, it was really one of the forerunners of a mov read more

The Euro horror has been given a special Blu-ray release courtesy of Severin Films. WEREWOLF IN A GIRLS' DORMITORY may be a silly title, but it's a memorable one, and it has en read more

The Marx Brothers – Family Rules!

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Annmarie Gatti on Nov 23, 2019

A Visit to Harpo’s Place: The Marx Brothers Family Rules and More As many of you may already know, I am a huge fan of The Marx Brothers. I’ve enjoyed their movies ever since I was a little kid, thanks to my father, who introduced me to their movies. As I watched these films with my da read more

book: You Should Have Left (2016; trans 2017 Ross Benjamin) by Daniel Kehlmann

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Nov 23, 2019

A screenwriter rents a house somewhere on the edge of the Alps so that his actress wife and their four-year-old daughter can have something of a vacation while he gets his teeth into his latest screenplay — the sequel to his last movie, a phenomenally successful piece of fluff called Besties. read more

Isn't this suite? Dubai hotel salutes Carole, and Paramount

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 23, 2019

Carole Lombard's dressing room at the Paramount studios in Hollywood was exquisite, designed with all the comforts a star of the '30s could want. The royal treatment is echoed in a new, luxurious hotel in a place Lombard probably never heard of during her lifetime......Dubai, the city in the United read more

Day 23 of Noirvember: Top Seven in ’47

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 23, 2019

If you were to ask a noir fan to name the greatest year for film noir, chances are that the answer would be 1947. Personally, I could also make a case for several other years – 1946 and 1950 come to mind most immediately – but when you take a look at the titles of the noirs released in 1947, you read more

Arabian Adventure ( 1979 )

Silver Scenes - A Blog for Classic Film Lovers Posted by The Metzinger Sisters on Nov 23, 2019

If you are looking for a fun 1970s adventure film set in Arabia, then here is a title to keep in mind: Arabian Adventure. Director Kevin Connor and producer John Dark, who made such corny classics as The Land That Time Forgot ( 1974 ), At the Earth's Core ( 1976 ), and Warlords of Atlantis ( 1978 ) read more

Ghost Ship (2002, Steve Beck)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 22, 2019

I am going to set a goal for myself with this post about Ghost Ship; I’m going to try to make it entertaining, which is going to be a challenge because there’s nothing entertaining about Ghost Ship. It’s badly directed and badly written. The actors are bad. They’re good actors and okay actors read more

Off the shoulder from Otto

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 22, 2019

This oh-so-sexy portrait of Carole Lombard baring her shoulder was taken by Paramount's Otto Dyar and ran in the April 1931 issue of The New Movie Magazine. We ran a piece about this issue, with Kay Francis on the cover, four years ago this month (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/831129.html).W read more

Classic Movie Beginner’s Guide: 1950s Film Noir

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 22, 2019

We follow up last week’s guide to classic film noir of the 1940s by continuing into the 1950s with 4 more entries. With the new decade came new progressions in realism, location shooting, and heightened character psychology. As Paul Schrader wrote, the noir hero started to “go bananas.&# read more

Day 22 of Noirvember: Someone’s in the Kitchen

Shadows and Satin Posted by shadowsandsatin on Nov 22, 2019

I don’t know if classic film stars spent as much time in the kitchen as the movie magazines of the day would have you believe, but I quite like to think of my favorite performers whipping up a three-layer chocolate cake or tasty batch of fried chicken. Today’s Noirvember post takes a peek inside read more

The Man I Love (1947): Ida Lupino Steals The Show

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Nov 21, 2019

It feels like we might have the courtesy of a bit of Gershwin masquerading under the cloak of noir. We find ourselves at a hole-in-the-wall jazz joint after hours. Club 39 feels free and easy with an intimate jam sesh. Petey Brown (Ida Lupino) is having fun with a rendition of “The Man I Love. read more

book: An Unwanted Guest (2018) by Shari Lapena

Noirish Posted by John Grant on Nov 21, 2019

I recently read Lucy Foley’s The Hunting Party, about a group of privileged guests snowed in on a Scottish estate when murder strikes, and had (genuinely) mixed feelings about it: a lot that I liked but also quite a lot about which I was dubious. Someone (I’ve no idea who) suggested tha read more

'Food' to 'Fools' in one fell swoop

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Nov 21, 2019

"The King"? That doesn't look like Clark Gable. And what's Carole Lombard doing with "Food"?It's actually a trade ad from Warners promoting Lombard's next movie, the only one she would make in Burbank. The ad also notes Rodgers & Hart music, which the Lombard and Fernand Gravet characters (he'd rece read more

On Blu-ray: Fritz Lang's Moonfleet (1955)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Nov 21, 2019

As a Joan Greenwood and George Sanders completest, Fritz Lang’s Moonfleet (1955) was a must-see for me. It doesn’t live up to the promise of its exciting cast though, which also includes Stewart Granger, Viveca Lindfors, and Melville Cooper. At best, it’s got its moments, and a cas read more
