JUST BECAUSE WE CAN? LOOKING AT THE CENSOR by Terry Sherwood

Posted on December 27, 2014 at 10:05pm 0 Comments

The furor that has been triggered by THE INTERVIEW has caused me to write a post concerning censorship in Hollywood.  This is not a new subject to this blog in regards to a wonderful if not very detailed book that I was reading called HOLLYWOOD CENSORED by Gregory D. Black.  Censorship goes on today - even if it does seem that it doesn’t, considering the amount of questionable moments in today’s films. What censorship in film does is to create a two edge weapon; which in itself is dangerous…

I write this at a Hollywood party of sorts near people waiting for the red carpet reception to happen and CLUB TCM to open up. It is the evening of the first day of the festival.  Many types of people here from those that wish to put on their personal…

STARDUST AND SHADOWS is lucky enough to be writing this entry from Santa Monica near the famous pier. It is still a number of days before the TCM FESTIVAL begins yet I still have time in this neck of the wood to find some film history.

First up , took a walk to the Annenberg Country beach house was once owned by Marian Davies who was connected pretty strongly with William Hearst.  This site is not it former splendour but a smaller version of itself much like  a way to many of these…

LEARNING FROM DREAMS by Terry Sherwood

Posted on March 31, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

It goes without saying that people watch pictures from the Classic Hollywood era for sheer enjoyment. l have discussed at length in posts the nostalgia factor and will continue to do so as l am a romantic at heart.

I have been fortunate to attend the 2011 TCM CLASSIC FILM FESTIVAL, and while waiting for a screening to begin, an interesting event took place. We were in the theatre when a young university age fellow approached a group of people in front on us. He announced to them that…

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 […]
