This one is kind of tricky as only one of my 3 is pure comedy: 1. Holiday - Hepburn and Grant at the height of their powers. Not strictly a comedy, but I am in awe of the chemistry of the two leads. 2. Stage Door - Ginger Rogers is adorable and their is just too many good lines to count, from pretty...

I just watched the 1930 version last week, how apropos. Well the 1938 version might be my favorite movie ever, so it would have taken a miracle for me to hold the 1930 version in the same esteem. The 1930 version does follow the play more closely, with a lot of the dialogue being word for word, part...

That's tremendous news. I am a huge fan of Vidor's work especially his silents, and even though Bardely isn't supposed to all that great(based on Vidor's own opinion, and contemporary reviews), I am anxious to see it. Especially due to the clip from Show People.

In William Mann's excellent biography Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn , her brother's death is shown to be a likely suicide. No one can say for certain, but the information the book provides makes a lot more sense than any of the other explanations posited. The book also makes it clear that she was ...

I have only seen him in The Big Parade, and thought he was quite good. I have Queen Christina on the back-burner to watch, but mainly because of Rouben Mamoulian.

I find the tragic circumstances of his life to be really fascinating, but I can't say much about his abilities.

Thanks for all the Mae Clarke information, I watched Waterloo Bridge for the first time a couple days ago, and thought she was fantastic, but I couldn't find anything about her. I actually stumbled onto this forum during my search. It's unfortunate that she never really got more chances to show her ...

Hey all, my name is Justin, and am happy to be here. I love classic era Hollywood, and I am particularly fascinated by the pre-code era. I am currently on a Joan Blondell kick, but my absolute favorites are Myrna Loy, Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, and Henry Fonda. I also love the films of George Cu...
