"Magic Town. This is a lighthearted movie with a nice message. It definitely isn’t a highlight in the career of Stewart, but it’s still fun to watch."

"One of the few Crosby films I have not seen. True that many of Der Bingo's films are fluff but "Going My Way" and Bells of St. Mary" show that he also had some acting chops. It's unfortunate that he didn't get as many…"

The Star Maker is one of the rarest Bing Crosby movies

The Star Maker (1939). The movie is really charming. Bing works well with children. Musicals on the big screen were extremely popular during this era and Crosby became well known as a Hollywood actor as well as musical artist.Bing starred as Larry Earl, an unsuccessful songwriter who decides to settle down with his new bride, Mary (Louise Campbell) and take a 9 to 5 job, only to realize that his true calling is show business. On his way home, he comes across some urchins singing and dancing on the streets for pennies, nickels and dimes, and decides to take these street kids to turn them into professional entertainers. I really recommend this movie if you need a fluffy movie to boost your spirits.See More

Wagon Train tv series

The show chronicles the adventures of a wagon train as it makes its way from Missouri to California. There were 284 episodes in 8 seasons: the first aired on September 18, 1957.Each week it told the story of one of the travelers on an 1870's "wagon train" making its way across the American West. This format thus combined the sweeping backdrop of an ever-changing frontier with the small, personal story of a single individual.So popular did the show become that it attracted an impressive array of "guest stars" -- Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck, Leslie Nielsen, Lee Marvin, etc.Bette Davis appeared in three episodes as different characters; as Bettina May (1961), Ella Lindstrom (1959) and Madame Elizabeth McQueeney (1959).…See More

"Is a silly yet agreeable light romantic comedy, it's a fast-paced 80 minutes, and I always enjoy Ginger Rogers... a glimpse of Ginger before her RKO roles with Fred. Thanks!"

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 […]
