ANNE NOW FOR OUR LESSON by Terry Sherwood

ANNE NOW FOR OUR LESSON

        

      I recently saw a Gary Cooper/ Anne Sheridan picture called GOOD SAM  (1948), directed by Leo McCarey  (who gave us DUCK SOUP (1933),  THE AWFUL TRUTH (1937), and many others).  The picture was in line with Cooper’s everyman image, with tender moments reading the children bedtime stories.   The picture is filled with “Capra like” laughter and folksy humour; both literally and figuratively.  I was surprised by onscreen TCM host Robert…

HOLIDAY DIFFERENCE by Terry Sherwood

Holidays are times that people love to watch the staples of the holidays.  Every generation has their favourites they put on and quite frankly watch without thinking. The films become like the Christmas cake or the poinsettia plant that someone brings you each year for no apparent reason other than they do it each year. That card from someone that you glance at, never really read, and put on your table or office cubicle on a string.  

    I remember the usual films, THE GRINCH THAT…

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start.

The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

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 […]
