Hi Patti, great to see you here back at GAOH.  

I saw Fredric March in the 1931 version Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and promptly this version became my fav.

Still to watch Susan and God.  Yes, I can remember Joan being annoying to all around her.  Will let you know when I watch it (although I'm not sure when that will be as I'm doing a course at the moment, so lots of assignments to complete before end of month)

Gosh, just re-read the stars in this movie.  Wow, Ruth Hussey and Rita Hayworth too.  I can't remember them from when I watched it before.

Hey, Patti.  I'll watch it too and we can have a chat about it.  I'm recording it (from TCM) this Sunday at 2pm.

I came to like Fredric March watching him in 1937's A Star is Born.

Susan and God, from what I can remember is quite hilarious.  Joan Crawford goes off on a religious "tangent".  All good fun.  I wouldn't have been too familiar with Fredric March when I saw this film many years ago, but I'm thinking he's probably Joan's poor long-suffering husband.  I'm sure you'll enjoy this pic, Patti.

I remember it coming on TCM one Friday evening and I just went with it and watched. It's coming on TCM here again soon, must record and catch it once more to watch Fredric March's part a bit better.

Yes, siree, won his first of two academy awards for that one. The only actor to ever win such an award for playing a horror film role. This is the version many consider the best of Robert Louis stevenson's classic novel. And that transformation scene and make up.................SIMPLY INCREDIBLE FOR THEIR TIME! March's award was truly well earned, playing both Jekyll and Hyde to the hilt!

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 […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. 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 […]
