Found this on youtube today.  Its true I think, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, well in the case of Michael Jackson imitating Fred Astaire, it comes from a point of total respect imho.

Here's a reminder...With Easter coming up, it's the perfect time to watch Easter Parade. :)

I love those pics and her outfits...specially the scarf. So chic!

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 […]

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 […]
