Top Hat (1935)

When you think of musicals, you think of song, dance, comedy; you think of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.  They are, perhaps, the definitive musical film stars.  Their films set the standard for musicals after the huge rush of the genre at the dawn of the sound era.  Astaire and Rogers made ten pictures together; nine were at RKO between 1933 and 1939, while a tenth was made at MGM in 1949 after Judy Garland was forced out of The Barkleys of Broadway.  Top Hat was…

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.
