A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Apr 17, 2019

Have you ever fallen under the spell of a film? Of course you have, otherwise you wouldn't be here. Certain films and characters have a way of mesmerizing us and drawing us into their world. Count me 100% under the spell of one Margo Sperling, the lady with the missing cat in 1977's "The late Show." read more

Hayley Mills: Hurrah For the Fearless Adolescent Girl

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Mar 31, 2019

When I was a pre-teen and a young teen I so wanted to be Hayley Mills. I wanted her name - Hayley - so different and desirable, her British accent - so much better than a garden variety Lawng Island one, and her hair - so perfectly blonde and sun-kissed. I tried to acquire every teen magazi read more

Crooner (1932): Still Crushing on Ann Dvorak

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Mar 17, 2019

I caught up with a nifty little pre-code called "Crooner" on TCM the other day. Because I am pretty mad for the pre-code era of Ann Dvorak, I checked it out and have to admit, it was quite fun (if you're not expecting too much). "Crooner" is just a Warner Brothers quickie (clocking in at 6 read more

Clearing Out My DVR: Why Can't I Like Jean Arthur?

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Jan 20, 2019

As part of my continuing resolve to clear out all of the movie's I've recorded but resisted, I took a deep breath and jumped into 1943's "The More the Merrier" starring Jean Arthur, Joel McCrea and Charles Coburn. It's a classic, right?....one of those films that is endlessly praised for read more

TCM NYC Tour: Hollywood Ain't Got Nuthin' on the Big Apple

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Dec 1, 2018

Okay, we all know Hollywood is king when it comes to classic films, but New York City's not too shabby. As proof, TCM offers a swell tour of the city I love best (but TCM - if you're listening - how about a Paris TCM tour? I'll be the first to sign on!).  This was my second time on the tour read more

Clearing Out My DVR Part 2: Madam Satan (1930); A Dress, A Dirigible and a Dame

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Nov 8, 2018

I love my DVR. Next to the Keurig coffee maker and the GPS, it is an invention that changed my life for the better. However, unlike the coffee maker, which gratifies me instantly with hot coffee and the GPS, that provides quick and (usually) correct directions, the DVR requires that I read more

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Oct 5, 2018

Let me get this out of the way - I absolutely love this latest version of "A Star is Born."

Then and Now: Films don't change, but we do

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on May 22, 2018

When I was young, I was so sure of everything. Now that I’m not, I’m not.  What does it all mean? My opinions were so solid, my convictions so sure. Now, they are, shall we say, open to suggestion. Films that I was once so definite about now come at me from another angle. O read more

Charlie ♥s Edna

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Apr 14, 2018

Charlie & Edna share a smooch in "Behind the Screen" Of all the Chaplins I love, I confess to loving Keystone Chaplin (1913-1914) the least. Engaging, revolutionary, amusing – yes. Knowing what is to come, we see all of the ingredients of greatness there… all except one. This nasty, read more

Son of the Gods: Oy! Broken Blossoms This Aint!

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Apr 4, 2018

There are some things I can get over – movie wise, that is.  While the racism of “Birth of a Nation” makes the skin crawl (not to mention a slight heaving of the stomach), it is an important film that should be seen at least once. “Pretty Woman” I can kind of enjoy read more
