John Ford made some great films that I really love.  "The Searchers" and "The Quiet Man" are my top favs.  I'll be checking your blog out soon.  Hope you're having a great evening.

I see that "The Searchers" (1956) is one of your favorite films, too.  I really like the story and thought that the film shots of the western landscapes looked really fantastic in widescreen, John Wayne's finest performance and one of the best western's ever filmed.

Hi Dan,

I enoyed your review of the Barbara Stanwyck book. Thought you might like to read a buit about my new book that has just come out:

Still the youngest director to ever win an Academy Award (Skippy, 1931); Norman Taurog’s career embraces the history of Hollywood, from silent comedies to the Elvis Presley era. During Taurog’s fifty-two years in the film business he directed over a hundred two-reel comedies and seventy-eight feature films starring everyone from Maurice Chevalier and Carole Lombard, to W.C. Fields and Bing Crosby, to Mickey Rooney and Spencer Tracy (who won an Oscar for his performance as Father Flanagan in Taurog’s "Boys Town"), to Judy Garland, Mario Lanza, Cary Grant, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, and of course his nine films with Elvis Presley. This biography is an in-depth study of Hollywood movie-making, as experienced by a talented craftsman and told by an author who worked closely with Taurog during the last six years and nine films of his career. "Elvis' Favorite Director: The Amazing 52-Year Career of Norman Taurog" is now available at www.BearManorMedia.com. and soon at Amazon.to Mickey Rooney and Spencer Tracy (who won an Oscar for his performance as Father Flanagan in Taurog’s Boys Town), to Judy Garland, Mario Lanza, Cary Grant, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, and of course his nine films with Elvis Presley. This biography is an in-depth study of Hollywood movie-making, as experienced by a talented craftsman and told by an author who worked closely with Taurog during the last six years and nine films of his career.

If you are interested I can send you a PDF for review.

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 […]
