The Golden Age of Hollywood



This quarter's issue of Films of the Golden Age is now available at your local newsstand. There's an interesting editorial by Bob King on Turner Classic Movie Channel's new HD channel and the high quality image of some of the films they are showing. Makes me almost want to subscribe to cable again just to see that!

Also an excellent article on Mari Blanchard who made her film debut in Copacabana with Groucho Marx and Carmen Miranda. Playing the Femme Fatale was her specialty though and with looks like this you can see why!




There's also a fine article about the RKO Pictures director William Wyler's film The Little Foxes starring Bette Davis. As fine a film as The Little Foxes is it was nominated for nine academy awards but didn't win a single one. 




Check out the poster says "NOT SUITABLE FOR GENERAL EXHIBITION"! 


The Forgotten Faces feature this issue has articles about Marjorie Riordan, Richard Allan, Lee Bonnell, John Archer, Mary Lee, and Wanda Hendrix.

Also in this issue you will find an excellent article about one of the pioneers of aviation films William A. Wellman. He directed such fabulous films such as Wings, Central Airport, Men With Wings, Call of the Wild, Thunder Birds etc.



Plus lots more goodies! If you don't subscribe to Films of the Golden Age and are a fan of classic films then you are missing a whole lot of well written and interesting articles.

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.
