I got to see CLIVE OF INDIA (1935) for the first time this morning--picked it up on DVD-R (as there is no legit DVD, nor was there, I believe, even a VHS of it) which features Colin Clive prominently towards the beginning.  Here he is seen exhibiting reluctance about blowing his ancestor's head off (Ronald Colman.)  I suppose if the film had been made a few years earlier, or by a less Star-conscious producer (Zanuck), Colin might well have played the title role himself--certainly Hollywood's ad-men would have appreciated that sort of cinematic provenance!

We should start a petition to get Universal to bring out newly remastered Blu Ray editions of ALL their classic Universal Monster Movies! The trouble is all the studios are run by soulless Accountants who only love the almighty dollar and who therefore wouldn't agree with spending what they would consider unnecessary amounts of money on remastering etcetera to bring these classic but elderly movies to a modern audience in a world of 3D blockbusters!

Just a couple of little screen caps I made recently and wanted to share here - my, he was incredible in this film - I just watched it again the other night for the zillionth time, and was so struck by how wonderful he was in it.

Without his presence in James Whale's two Frankenstein movies they wouldn't have been the same films , he lent a nervy needy persona , which makes the dynamics of both movies just perfection , as the driven Henry Frankenstein bursting with excitement as he's about to CREATE LIFE FROM THE DEAD! You can tell the immense thrill he's getting with the enormity of his creative energies in the magnificent creation of the Monster sequence - all wonderful stuff!

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 […]
