Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife (1938): Coop and Colbert

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jun 29, 2021

The whole glorious entangled mess of the story feels like an obvious antecedent to Billy Wilder’s Love in the Afternoon (1957), which is one of his lesser films (even with the redeeming presence of both Hepburn and Chevalier). It seems like a fairly obvious observation to make because Wilder read more

LISBON

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Jun 27, 2021

 LISBON is a 1956 feature made by Republic Pictures, and filmed in Portugal. I bought the Kino DVD of it for a very low price from Edward R.
