Re: "But ya are, Blanche..."

I think MissG hit the nail on the head... Joan was more blessed in the "good looks" and glamour department and worked hard to maintain that image. Bette was more of a "plain Jane" and worked hard to get character roles to cement her reputation as a "great actress." Exa...

I had the pleasure of watchiing this too. Terrific extras with Borzage as an actor. I had no idea that he was an actor as well as a director. A man of many talents! :)

I agree precoder! Here's my little review of Stolen Moments . I watched Stolen Moments off my new Valentino set. This was the movie Rudy made before he hit stardom with THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE. Having read the reviews, I wasn't expecting much, and I wasn't disappointed. Rudy is the best ...

You're welcome! It was great seeing the Gish sisters and Bobby Harron together. I have a soft spot for Bobby as he died tragically young. Never got the chance to see how he would've done without Griffith. Dorothy was adorable in this one! I liked her better than Lillian's typical idealized heroine.

The Phantom Carriage is an amazing movie! Early Swedish cinema was way ahead of American cinema of the same time artistically.

Hedvig, I'm not sure if it's the new version or not.

Yes indeed, Miss Arthur is one of my all time favorite screwball comediennes! She has a great gift of physicality and a quirkiness that are very endearing! She shares these qualities with Marion Davies and Carole Lombard. You can never get enough of the funny girls!

Excellent Hedvig! Your rendition captures the spiritual sense of that scene from The Phantom Carriage quite well! A very heartfelt and intelligent interpretation! :D You definately should continue with your art! I was interested in drawing when I was young, but never kept it up. Here's a youtube cl...

Hi Brenda here! I haven't begun to really read Mae's autobiography, but I get the sense that her second husband was the love of her life. Does she tell what happened there? So many books, and so little time! :)

I love Jane Austen! I'm glad she's going through a revival! Good, strong women roles!

How fun, I'll check out the thread! A friend of mine loaned me the movie as an early birthday treat since she knew I'd only seen Mae in "Waterloo Bridge." She also sent me Mae's oral autobiography, "Featured Player. " I'm quickly becoming a fan of Mae's! :D She is very good!

My little review of Man's Castle : Recently I had the pleasure or viewing Man's Castle with Loretta Young and Spencer Tracy. First off, I think Man's Castle is one of the best depression era love stories that I've ever seen! Kudos to Borzage for his fine sense of romantic drama in Depression era Ame...

"Fast Workers" (1933)

I just watched my first sound film with John Gilbert with mixed emotions. First of all, it was a complete pleasure but not a complete surprise that there was nothing wrong with his voice. Of course there was nothing wrong with his voice, we all know that, but it was good to have it confirmed any way...

The Mating Call is s surprising precode! Superb story and acting! That Thomas Meighan was very manly! He was an older matinee idol, having given up the stage for the fledgling film industry and becoming a favorite of Cecil B. DeMille. His masterpiece was The Miracle Man with Lon Chaney which is now...
