Barbara Stanwyck and Claudette Colbert were actresses
who made some sizzling pre-codes and whose careers
spanned many decades but there are a lot of beautiful
actresses whose careers, for some reason or another
faltered after the code - Noel Francis, Alice White, Peggy
Shannon, Nancy Carroll, Helen Chandler, Karen Morley,
Anita Page, Dorothy Revier ect. Dorothy Lee, I read was
too much associated with Wheeler and Woolsey to make
it on her own and I suppose temperament and marriage
may have been the reason for some retirements but it is
interesting to wonder about what happened. Ann Dvorak,
Sidney Fox, Dorothy Wilson, Jacqueline Logan, June Collyer,
the list is endless.....

I'll have to reserve some of my pics for this group. Here are the Duncan Sisters from 1929 "It's a Great Life", musical. They aren't exactly "cute"
but must've been considered such in their day.

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.
