I watched Three Girls About Town last night. Good pick, Kevin! It was a very silly but enjoyable comedy that included a "murder" (that ended up not being one). Two sisters (Faith and Hope) run conventions at a hotel and keep their youngest sister (Charity) in an expensive school. But the youngest sister shows up, wanting to leave school. She's anything but innocent and goes after Hope's boyfriend, a journalist. At a very inopportune moment, a corpse shows up in the sisters' room. They would prefer it be found somewhere else, so they enlist the help of their suitors to move the body, but the corpse keeps getting lost. Joan Blondell, Binnie Barnes, Robert Benchley and Eric Blore (who's wandering around drunk, looking for someone named Charlie) are just part of the great cast.

I watched it Rosie andI liked it. I had several laugh out loud moments. I think you'd enjoy it.

I see there's a new movie of the week. It looks like my kind of movie, AND I've never seen it! Has anyone else watched it yet?

What one of the things that i liked is seeing Lunt and Fontaine,,I like

stage plays also,and they were the top at that time,,and to see them

in a great cause,was nice,,I still remember the Victory gardens,where

you pulled a carrot out of the ground,wiped it off,and ate it,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Yes that was a good movie,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Good pick, Kevin!

I started watching Stage Door Canteen. I think this is the only one of the studios' patriotic variety shows I haven't seen yet, because I have seen Hollywood Canteen, Thank Your Lucky StarsThis Is the Army, and Star-Spangled Rhythm. Am I forgetting any?

I had to pause it before I got to the end, but I will go back. It's an amazing snapshot of a time in American history. The stars listed in the main credits are a tiny fraction of the stars that appear. One of the unique things about this movie is that it has both Katharine Hepburn and Harpo Marx in it.

Kaye seemed to have several films along that same line.

On Dave Kehr and “Movies That Mattered”

When I was in the film program at Northwestern University in Chicago, my peers and I were required to read the works of Walter Benjamin, John Berger, Michel Foucault and even Freud, Jung and Marx. The idea was to apply their theories to the cinema to better understand how film worked, or how it related […]

Making the Leap: Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Talkies

To view The Private Life of Don Juan click here. Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. made his last movie in 1934. The Private Life of Don Juan was, quite accidentally, a fitting farewell to one of the first megastars of the movie industry. It wasn’t clear while filming it that it would be Fairbanks’ last movie but […]

The Greatest Early Douglas Sirk: Lured (1947)

To view Lured click here. Writer and director Douglas Sirk is mainly known today for his exquisite technicolor melodramas, such as Magnificent Obsession (1954), All That Heaven Allows (1955), Written on the Wind (1956) and Imitation of Life (1959), his last feature-length film. His work throughout the 1950s, and specifically these four films, are not […]
