I just wrote a review of the Norman Taurog book for my movie blog:

Hello Michael and welcome to The Golden Age of Hollywood! What a privilege to have you join our humble little corner of the web. I always enjoyed your father's performances as Lestrade and his many other roles. He was a great character actor alongside many others, without whom the classic films could never been made. Thanks for joining and I hope you enjoy the site. It would be cool if you maybe you could post some blogs about your father and his many roles.

This Land is Your Land: The Southerner (1945)

To view The Southerner click here. Jean Renoir considered The Southerner (1945) to be his “only work of a personal nature carried out in Hollywood.” Adapted from the National Book Award winning novel Hold Autumn in Your Hand, by George Sessions Perry, it follows a year in the life of a struggling Texas tenant farmer and his family. A lyrical portrait of do-it-yourself […]

To view Caesar and Cleopatra click here. In 1951, surrealist artist Man Ray, who was a fan of the cinema, quipped, “The worst films I have ever seen, the ones that put me to sleep, contain ten or fifteen marvelous minutes. The best films I have ever seen only contain ten or fifteen worthwhile ones.” […]
