The Golden Age of Hollywood


We've done many categories since this game started. I announce the current category in the game, but if you can't find the announcement, just ask any of the players.
There's a game I play every chance I get with anyone who knows about movies. It's very simple: we pick a movie category and take turns naming titles of movies that fit in the category. For example, "films with a number in the title," or "films with hospital scenes" or "films with Joseph Cotten." I thought I'd see if anyone here wants to play.

Since there's no way of knowing how many people would want to join in, we can't take turns, so let's do it this way: only name one title at a time and wait for someone else to name one before you go again. The game ends when either we can't think of any more titles, or we reach 50 titles (because I know some people could go on and on way past the point where I would get bored with the category). So please mention the number we're on when you name a title.
It's no fair using IMDB or other sources, but if you run across a title by accident while the game is going on, it's fair to use it.
I'll start, and for the category I choose "films in which a fire occurs" (not a fire in the fireplace). The fire doesn't have to be depicted, just mentioned. This is a hard category for me, because it will mostly be composed of dramas, and I'm more into comedies, but here goes:

I love this, too, Karen! It's wonderful. I loved Tony Randall in it, but I think my favorite scene was that steamy one where Barbara Eden is being seduced by the god Pan. 

Yes, that one is certainly memorable too! 

  10. Circus Fever (1925) -Hal Roach "Our Gang" two reel comedy silent starring the Little Rascals.

 The gang feign illness to avoid school to be able to go to the visiting circus. Inevitably their plan backfires...

Sounds like fun.  Hey did you hear John?  That Kevin put the donate button up there on the main page and $280 was contributed just like that (*snaps fingers). Kevin hasn't confirmed the green light for another year, but with $280 reached in donations, I think task done ! So I will be so happy to continue to see you and Rosie here at the game.  Have you spoken to Miss Rosie lately. She's been a bit scarce. She must be very busy with work and things.  

Also, special mention and remembering Jim Kearney who used to be one of the main stays of The Game.  It was his birthday two days ago. Gone but not forgotten.

Great news Karen! I tried to pledge some money last night but I got there too late.
I haven't spoken to Rosie for some time , as you say she's probably busy with her work commitments.
Happy birthday to Jim, he was a great ambassador of GAOH.
Just been on Facebook and discovered another classic film site that calls itself Golden Age of Hollywood (and Television) that has 5.6k members I wonder if they have poached any of our enthusiasts.

5.6K members. That's huge.

Hi, folks! I haven't been busy with work as much as I have been with my son, who is visiting for his summer vacation. So busy, in fact, that I forgot to go to Jim's FB page on his birthday, but I've been there since. It's still there. I'm so glad that these little Internet repositories of Jim's creative output still exist.

John, I might know the site you spoke of. It might be the one I was on that I was recruited from. I think that Classic Movie Man was involved with both that site and the creation of this one, but Kevin would know all the history of that.

11. Lili - A young girl gets a job with a carnival when it is noticed that people enjoy watching her talk with the puppets in the puppet show. The addition of a live human being (and a very lovely one) into the act makes them a success. She falls in love with a married man in the circus, who uses her, not realizing until the end that it is the shy puppeteer who loves her and who has been speaking to her through his puppets.

  12. Charlie Chan at the Circus (1936)-   starring Warner Oland as the famous Oriental detective and his overzealous eldest  no.1 son Lee played by Keye Luke.

  Charlie Chan, his wife and his twelve children spend a well earned visit to the travelling circus, Unbeknown to him, Chan becomes embroiled in a murder investigation. 

Charlie Chan is known for his wise sayings, Here is one of his best!
"Mind like parachute, only function when open".

Saw Warner Oland in Shang-hai Express  the other night.  Good Movie !

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
