WE ALL REMEMBER By Terry Sherwood

I have just had the opportunity to view the picture MR SKEFFINGTON (1944), directed by the black listed Vincent Sherman. What can you write about actor Claude Rains that would be different? This was a very private man, who, while apparently being held in high regard by many people, never spoke of his numerous marriages.  I could not help but think of some of the actors we have lost recently to illness, or reckless living.

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 […]
