New at the Karloff Theater: NIGHT WORLD, 1932, pre code

Boris in his dressing room during the run of ARSENIC AND OLD LACE. He is preparing a corncob pipe stuffed with cotton, that's been soaked in eucalyptus oil. He would puff on this offstage to maintain his voice.

The Hollywood gossip-and-news columnists were in competition with one another, each hoping for a big 'scoop'. And sometimes they became ensnared by news of big upcoming films that never were made, as with this January 1936 item.

Jean Harlow, Mary Dees, and SARATOGA

I watched SARATOGA again last night for the first time in years and still found it very depressing. It is so sad to watch Harlow, clearly weak and listless, playing each scene when you know how sick she is. And every time I saw her double Mary Dees’ back turned to the camera, all I […]

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.
