Great Entertainers

They were more than movie actors, they also conquered the stage, the airwaves and the jukeboxes. They were all round musical performers like Sinatra, Jolson, Garland, Crosby, Astaire, Armstrong, Fitzgerald : they were the Great Entertainers.

Brando, who didn't go to funerals, even went to Durante's. He said Durante taught him how to laugh. In his biography of Durante, Jhan Robbins said he couldn't find one detractor of Durante.

He was perhaps the most beloved entertainer of them all.

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 […]
