"Thank you so much for the request! I've been away from my computer for the past few months because I was moving to San Francisco. Finally reunited with it after way too long, so I will be appearing around here way more frequently again. :)"

"Karen~I've seen that one semi-recently too, and it's absolutely beautiful. I'm absolutely crazy about Kay Francis, Aline MacMahon and of course William Powell, so I went into it expecting the best, and I wasn't disappointed!"

"I offer films to people outside of the U.S. as well. I have a varied and growing collection, and have quite a few silent films. If anyone is interested or cannot find something they are seeking, just drop me a line. :) Sarah"

I thank you for the friend request. I do recommend the Nancy Carroll films. She was a really fine actress but do see ones such as "The Devil's Holiday", "Stolen Heaven", "Laughter" which are her drama films. She was in musicals with Charles "Buddy" Rogers but she really couldn't sing beyond a trilling sound. The ones with Phillips Holmes were some of her best films and his best, too. Both were put into rather mediocre films and their careers faded out. "An American Tragedy" is an excellent film for Phillips Holmes. Sylvia Sidney is superb as always. Frances Dee has much less to do than Elizabeth Taylor in the glossier remake, "A Place in the Sun". Helen Twelvetrees was a really fine actress and I think my favourite of hers is "Her Man" which is a gritty pre-code. Her co-star is Phillips Holmes. He had a number of really fine films but the roles got smaller. I love Dorothy Mackaill and she holds her own with Basil Rathbone in "The Flirting Widow". I like all of her films. Ann Harding is a strong favourite and her best films were in the 1930s. I love all of Sylvia Sidney's 30s films and all are well worth seeing. Marion Davies was best up to 1934 while at MGM. She was a marvelous comedienne. Her latter silent films really hold up so well today such as "Tillie the Toiler", "The Fair Co-Ed", "The Patsy", and "Show People". I see you have a photo of Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. in "Union Depot". That is a great film! And I do have it in my collection. Best to You! Dennis.

Thank you so much for making me your friend Charissa. I know it's

the same old excuse but "I thought we were friends already"!!!

The same thing happened with Shirlee, I went to leave a message

and realised we weren't official friends!!

Thank you, Charissa! I love your photos. What a wonderful variety. Do I see that you are a Joan Crawford fan? Also, Rudolph Valentino and Lon Chaney. I have SO many films that I don't even know what is my collection. I have to be careful when I get anymore because I have traded with someone and found I already had the film.

Are you familiar with some of the early films of Nancy Carroll such as "The Devil's Holiday", "Stolen Heaven", "Laughter", etc.? She was great. Helen Twelvetrees is underrated and so is Phillips Holmes.

All the Best to you!

Dennis.

Charissa, I felt so awkward calling you "Eachday." I like your new name and avatar much better! Do you pronounce the "ch" like "charity" or like "charisma"? I didn't realize till now that we are fellow Floridians, although I'm one of the newcomers. I live in Tampa.

See you at the game, where your presence is much appreciated,

Rosie

Even Buster is excited about that and wants to come over and watch it with you.  Be sure to record it!  xo

Dear Charissa,

Thank you for your kind note. I don't have these hibiscus studies online anywhere, but here's another shot -- this time in full sunlight.

It was great to see you stop by Rosie's game today. Hope to see you there again soon.

All my best,

Jim

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 […]
