Taking the Long Way To...Gary Cooper

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Nov 21, 2012

Yup, I've been a real chump about appreciating Gary Cooper. It took me long enough, but, finally, here I am - just loving the man. It's really not my fault. My first introduction to Gary was his work during the 1950s, the time when Hollywood starred its aging leading men with young female stars read more

Broadway Greats Via The Silver Screen

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Nov 13, 2012

Broadway vs. Hollywood - it's always been a case of apple and oranges. Hollywood stars don't always shine as brightly on the stage and stage legends don't always make the grade on the screen and whichever you prefer,  it's always a matter of taste. However, there is one thing the movies have ov read more

Mary Astor: The Prisoner of Moorcrest

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Nov 5, 2012

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess whose mean father and evil mother worked her to the bone, lived off her earnings and kept her a prisoner in a castle called Moorcrest in a place called Hollywood. Sounds a little "Jane Eyre" and "Cinderella" with a dash of "Rapunzel." But, this is no f read more

HALLOWEEN PUBLICITY PHOTOS: It's Scary What a Starlet Has to Do

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Oct 30, 2012

Pity the poor starlet of yesteryear.

Once they were famous, I'll bet these gals would not have considered these photos too much of read more

Chaplinesque

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Oct 10, 2012

Being in a totally besotted Charlie Chaplin mood these days, I came across the origin of the word "Chaplinesque." While the dictionaries define it as relating to the films or character of Chaplin, somehow it means more than that. After seeing Chaplin's "The Kid," American poet Hart Crane knew he read more

The Irksome Jimmy Stewart

A Person in the Dark Posted by FlickChick on Oct 4, 2012

Who doesn't love Jimmy Stewart?  I certainly adore him. In youth he is sweet and funny and very human (oh, and super cute, too). As he aged, the charm remained and a mature wisdom and reliability was added to the package. So why then are the three movie characters I find most irks read more
