Vivien Leigh was very short.

About a year after I moved to Hollywood (from Seattle), I had the opportunity to visit the set of Stanley Kramer's SHIP OF FOOLS.  Everybody was working that day, including Vivien Leigh, Simone Signoret, Jose Ferrer and Lee Marvin.  And, sitting off-camera, watching the filming was Spencer Tracy.  Quite a thrill.

Another one I have is "The Hard Guy" (1930). It may

have been his first movie, only a short. I do rave about

this but when you watch it there is not a lot of difference

in his acting of then and 20 years later. He was one of the

original "naturals"!!

What an interesting group. I actually just watched

"The Power and the Glory" last week and both he

and Colleen Moore were terrific in it. I also will try

to rewatch sometime soon "Now I'll Tell". There are

some real gems among his early years.

To view The Three Musketeers click here. To view The Four Musketeers click here. Director Richard Lester was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but he directed some of the best British films of the 1960s. Inspired by Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati, he developed an acute funny bone and an appreciation of the absurd that allowed […]

Black Jesus (1968) Isn’t What You Think It Is

To view Black Jesus click here. I’d honestly be shocked if more than a handful of people around here have heard of Black Jesus (1968) before today. Barely released in American theaters by one-shot outfit Plaza Pictures and never given a legitimate home video release (ignore the bootleg DVDs), this is a rough, tough and […]

Summer Daze: Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953)

To view Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday click here. The first screen appearance of Jacques Tati’s Hulot character is inside of a car: a clattering, jittering wreck making its way to a seaside hotel in Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953). Tati cuts from the sound of a train horn to the pitter-putter of Hulot’s gasping car engine as it turns the corner […]
