THE MANY LIVES OF UNIVERSAL'S FRANKENSTEIN (1931) by Terry Sherwood

THE MANY LIVES OF UNIVERSAL'S FRANKENSTEIN (1931) by Terry Sherwood

 

"Its clearer..its clearer" was the cry as I turned around to face the people in the tower. I resist calling this post the 'Curse of Frankenstein" simply because it is not a curse at for people that love film.  I speak of the Bluray edition of FRANKENSTEIN (1931) which has now become available for individual purchase in North America apart from the  eight disk Classic Monster Collection. I did very…

MOVING PICTURE WORLD by Terry Sherwood

 

 

Thoughts today as as wistful look as to why myself and others watch 'classic Film"? Why do we see these celluloid examples of stories past with an affection when others that we talk to stare at us in disbelief that we would dare to watch " a movie without color". I had someone say that to me with the remark that he was 'not as old as me". Got me to thinking do you need to have some sort of life experience no matter what to watch these pictures. So why do we fill our PVR's,…

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 […]
