QUALITY OF MADNESS by TERRY SHERWOOD

     One of the staple images that cross over between horror and science fiction is the ‘mad scientist.’ That character could manifest as part of mainstream cinema; for example, the sinister pharmaceutical company in THE FUGITIVE.  The medical industry as a whole is the evil ogre in countless novels, stories, and television series.  And even the news.   Every filmgoer has their favourite.  My favourite for his portrayal amongst mad scientists is Lionel Atwill.   

    Today, Lionel…

SALTY MARIE DRESSLER by Terry Sherwood

One of the pleasures of writing on what you enjoy is sharing something personal about a common subject. When I first discovered Marie Dressler, I was not impressed.  I had thought that film stars should fall into glamour and grace or tough guys with guns, swords, and horses.  It took me a few years to appreciate the unique talent of Marie Dressler.

Marie is, I am proud to say, a Canadian from a small town called Cobourg, in the province of Ontario. My first memory of Marie Dressler…

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 […]
