I don't blame John for this - Mayer sounds like such a common little man, but of course the effect on John's career was devastating.  Looking at Queen Christina you can see the impact that it had on his confidence.

I heard that it started the day that He and Greta Garbo were supposed to be married but she didn't show up. He was in the bathroom with Mayer who told him to just sleep with her and John decked him.

I read John Gilbert's biography by his daughter Letrice Fountain, and it was most interesting.  His short life was a very difficult one, and I think the way he was treated by Louis B. Mayer was  unforgiveable.

Was reading about John Gilbert's talkie movies yesterday (at Nitrateville),

which was interesting to hear someone's opinions on those movies, when we always hear his talkie career was such a disaster.  I for one would love to see his talkie movies.

Like it said, maybe not obvious roles for him, but they sound like interesting roles that only a good actor could portray effectively.

From THE APOSTLE OF VENGEANCE (1916) Starring William S. Hart. I believe this was Jack's very first appearance in the movies. Look at all that hair!

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 […]
