The Golden Age of Hollywood

To start a discussion, I propse to name the masters of mirth that You find as the Kings of Comedy. I propose to name my top three and ask if anyone cares to names their favorites or comment on my choices. #1 W. C. Fields #2 Groucho Marx #3 Curly Howard. I feel, for very different reasons, These 3 are the men who have given the most laughs in all my years of movie viewing. I love many more than these, but this is the cream of the crop.

In no particular order: The Marx Brothers, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, W.C. Fields and Mae West -- unfortunately there aren't too many female comedians; Rosalind Russell, Katherine Hepburn, Thelma Todd, et al, played funny roles in various movies, but also took dramatic parts. I haven't seen enough of Zazu Pitts to comment on her. Of course there's Gracie Allen. And, that great straight "man," Margaret Dumont.
Chaplin is my top followed by Keaton and laurel and hardy. Love them all though
Curly HOward, Abbott and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, That's what I grew up with and that's what I still love to this day and always will!! NYUK, NYUK, NYUK!! ; )

Oh man, I love them all. But Buster Keaton is my favorite.

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 […]
