This is a fun movie that I already have in my collection! Ginger Rogers is an attorney who ends up representing her idol, a movie cowboy played by Jack Carson. It's a fun romance.

I will rewatch it and hope that I won't be the only one to watch it and comment on it...

Is a silly yet agreeable light romantic comedy, it's a fast-paced 80 minutes, and I always enjoy Ginger Rogers... a glimpse of Ginger before her RKO roles with Fred. Thanks!

If you like to see Ginger in her pre-Fred days, check out A Shriek in the Night and The Thirteenth Guest, both viewable for free online. These are from 1933 and 1932. I also loved her in Gold Diggers of 1933.

Thanks for this Rosie!

Ginger Rogers was such a cutie....mostly know for her talents as a dancer with Fred, but that's not the case, she was marvellous in light comedy roles. This is an example, but my favourite is Bachelor Mother (1939) co-starring David Niven and Charles Coburn.

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 […]
