Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jul 5, 2018

It was a riot talking with Grace Collins of True Stories of Tinseltown about Stella Dallas, William Powell, The Blue Gardenia, and Brief Encounter.

In Love with Nick Charles

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jun 10, 2018

When asked to pick a swoon-worthy character for the Reel Infatuation blogathon, I assumed Nick Charles would already be taken. But this year, my fellow bloggers, you were too slow on the uptake. He’s all mine. How do I love thee, Nick? Let me count the ways. You are…. Sigh. Who could be read more

Dancing Lady: A Film that Subsists on Chemistry Alone

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on May 27, 2018

Let’s consider the reasons Joan Crawford is a terrible choice to star in Dancing Lady (1933), one of those films about an aspiring hoofer, Janie, who is willing to do anything but trade sexual favors to get on the stage, and who is so talented she actually makes it. 1. So talented at dancing? read more

Advice to a Fritz Lang Heroine, after Too Much Crime TV

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Apr 13, 2018

Oh honey. The reporters are telling you the police are closing in. Every black and white outfit has you jumping. You’re burning your dress in an incinerator in the backyard. Let’s refresh why. The date is 1953. You, our heroine of The Blue Gardenia, are played by Anne Baxter. The actress read more

Happy Accidents: an Underrated Rom-Com

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Mar 11, 2018

Few rom-coms actually manage to be both romantic AND funny. For some movies, the romance wins, but the laughs are tepid; for others, you’re laughing so hard, but not feeling any chemistry. Happy Accidents (2000) is that rare film that manages both, maybe because, like most great romances, it’s not read more

2018 Oscar Best Pics Ranked (of the Five I’ve Seen)

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Feb 25, 2018

It’s that time again, time to get irritable with the Academy and argue with their choices. This year I thought they did pretty well. Though I haven’t seen Dunkirk yet, I’m glad they’re finally giving Christopher Nolan credit; his ability to capture a place (real as well as fi read more

Girl 27: The Rape Case MGM Covered Up–and the Woman Who Fought Back

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 17, 2018

It’s hard to watch Girl 27 (2007). I first heard Patricia Douglas’s story on You Must Remember This podcast, then read the famous Vanity Fair article about it. That a movie extra was raped by an MGM salesperson, that the studio besmirched her reputation and hushed up the story–non read more

Spielberg Needs a Better Editor–or These Classic Films

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 14, 2018

I just watched The Post, and as usual with a Steven Spielberg film, I was thoroughly enjoying it, hoping, “Maybe he’s avoided it this time!” And then WHAM! There it is: The schmaltzy, on-the-nose scenes and/or musical selections that undo the magic he has so skillfully woven. And read more

Can Barbara Stanwyck Make Up for George Brent?

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 12, 2018

I find myself reserving certain films for future viewings when I love a star. Sometimes–as with Barbara Stanwyck–I try to watch her lesser films, putting off a great one so at least one is still waiting in reserve for me, like some wonderful present under the tree. So I didn’t go read more
