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.

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 […]
