Oh so sorry Joe you missed her day. I'm so busy I don't get here much. I wished I had known earlier, a few weeks ago to give y'all a heads up. Yeah, "GWSH" is funny. I also love "It All Came True" with my boyfriend Bogie, Ann got second billing and her character is a tough, cute torch singer.

HHey Joe, Yes, I had seen "GWSH" at an earlier time. Funny. Sort of a screwball comedy and "This Old House" mix ...

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
