W.C. Fields-juggling humorist.

My favorite Fields is 1934's "It's a Gift". I certainly wish they would play these more on TV nowdays. Fields had a talent for playing the fraudulent villain, a "humbug" who you could see thru. Cynical humor was his forte'. He really was a clown who was laughing with us, and his biting remarks are great social commentary, especially about children, dogs, drinking and relatives. Anybody out there into Fields? Anybody check out youtube?

Well after scanning thru this site for a few mins. I noticed Jean Harlow doesn't have a group listing. So now I am asking, Why Not ? My question to you loyal movie buffs is-- "Would you like to see/start a post on Jean Harlows films here? I'm trying to find out if there is any interest in it.

Thanks.…

Back after a spell

Posted on May 30, 2010 at 8:41pm 0 Comments

Well, I got my computer repaired after a spell, so it's been awhile since I posted here! Sorry if I took too long but I want to tell all of you that I'm glad to be back.

Enjoying reading your posts & catching up with what I have missed. Will keep you posted on the great stuff, and cartoons. Carole… Continue

Early motion pics & color

Posted on November 1, 2009 at 6:00am 2 Comments

It seems more & more of YouTube is revealing the early silent films, & some in color as well. I personally love this & think that films ought to be shown, or what good are they? I'm happy that folks are finally able, thru technology, to see these old films before they disintegrate entirely. I'm fascinated at the maker's attempts to create these sound & color experiments from the beginning. Now if only we could improve the technology of YouTube and get clearer prints of… Continue

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 […]
