Saw BRINGING UP BABY yesterday and then followed it with the TCM documentary CARY GRANT: A CLASS APART. Baby is one of those screwball comedy gems one can watch over again, and class apart is a very insightful biography that separates Cary Grant (the iconic Hollywood persona) from Archibald Alexander Leach (the Cockney from Bristol who eventually became Cary Grant). He was once quoted as having said: "everyone wants to be Cary Grant........Even I want to be Cary Grant!"

Once again, Mrs. Lamarr, i am deeply gratified. I really do feel as though i am traveling back in time when watching the good old classics. Pretty rare for a youngster my age to be a fan of Cary Grant or Douglas Fairbanks or Errol Flynn or the lot.

You speak right out of my heart, dear Mr. Perez! The good old classics and all mystics back in those days are all I really appreciate today. I am an old fashioned young lady who loves to travel back in time with movies and pictures for a tea with Doug and Mary at Pickfair till the countryhouse where Cary made those funny movie with all the troubeling building a house. The values and qualities was so much different and precious and all the people so much more gentle than today. To reading your words is eyecandy. :-)

And don't think i don't enjoy a good silent picture! I am a fan of Fairbanks, Chaplin, The Barrymores, and the lot.

How very amusing of you, Mrs. Lamarr! I am deeply gratified by your friend request which i so gladly accepted. Mind you, in this modernized and rather cynical world of computers and cellular phones, i lean more towards a generation of old. I have a tremendous fascination with the 30s, 40s and 50s. I am an old fashioned young man who takes advantage of today's good technology, but that's as modern as i get. I feel as though i belong in a more classic era. And when it comes to motion pictures, for me, it's a wonderful world of B&W and technicolor. Thank god for the classics!

;-) How intently of you, Alexander Perez!  Yes those are my words and I said "Because you don't live near a bakery doesn't mean you have to go without cheesecake!" ;-)

He sure was!! Oh, Pardon me, Mrs. Lamarr, but weren't you the one that once said "anyone can be glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid"? :-)

"classy, funny, and unbelievably talented" so so true!!! He is my alltime real Gentleman. :o)

At last, a chance to talk about Cary Grant - to people who care!

I adore him as an actor, he can do comedy and tragedy, can move me to laughter and tears, often in the same film (In Name Only) and, as AlexaBoop said earlier, stayed attractive into his later years. Just gotta love him!

Jean Harlow, Mary Dees, and SARATOGA

I watched SARATOGA again last night for the first time in years and still found it very depressing. It is so sad to watch Harlow, clearly weak and listless, playing each scene when you know how sick she is. And every time I saw her double Mary Dees’ back turned to the camera, all I […]

Man’s Castle 1933

Embarrassed to say but I just watched Frank Borzage’s Man’s Castle for the first time this week. Wow, what a movie! Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young are both excellent but the way the movie plows headlong into the plight of desperate people during the despression is remarkable. There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]

How’s It Going, Everybody?

Every now and then I stop back in to look at some of the updated comments and I’m surprised, and gladdened, to see that there still are comments! Now, I no longer get paid to post here so this is just a “Hi, how are you?” to everyone who still comments here (so don’t freak […]
