Possessed (1947) 6/10 (Possibly minor spoilers)



The Joan Crawford of the late 1940s was very different from the young flapper of the 20s or the shop, professional or show girl of the 30s. An important difference was that she had moved from MGM to Warners and the post war period was darker, the film noir style infiltrated every type of melodrama and women's picture.

However when writer and director Herbert Wilcox decided to make a second film about Queen Victoria it wasn't a continuation of the first film. That would have been rather difficult as Victoria the Great (1937) mainly covered the early and final years of… Continue

Classic Film Stars: Perfection or Photoshopped?

Classic Film Stars: Perfection or Photoshopped?

It seems like every few months, some photoshopped before and after of a magazine cover gets leaked- or simply shown on the photographer themselves web site. The wonder (and sometimes horror) of retouched photos is an element of our culture that we need constant… Continue

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 […]
