Ingrid Bergman's "We'll always have Paris" hat

Like many of you, one of my favourite movies ever is Casablanca and one of my favourite scenes, the airport scene. There's something that makes this scene the most romantic of all (and one of the most beautiful scenes ever shot).

In this scene Ingrid Bergman wears the mos beautiful brimmed hat I have ever seen. Well, this hat is my mom's consumer dream and I have been looking for a replica (or simply a hat that looks similar) for a few months… Continue

Ava Gardner: scrawny kid or glamour girl?

This has to be my favourite picture of Ava Gardner. This little girl has the same look, same smile, same cheeks and same chin, but lacks the glamour and womanliness of the Ava we see on screen.

She is one of my favourites, not only for being stunningly beautiful, but for being more "real" to me than any other big star. You see, not many famous people come to Brazil, but Ava did (although I wasn't alive at the time). And by "real" I didn't mean… Continue

Sidney Poitier and Hattie McDaniel

Today during philosophy class we were asked by our teacher to talk about a person that influenced something important. While everybody else was picking Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Martin Luther King or Hitler, I chose the great Hattie McDaniel. Of course no one knew who she was.

Well, Hattie McDaniel was the first African-american to win an Academy Award. Most of you might remember her for her role as Mammy in "Gone With The Wind". She was born in… Continue

List of Classic Actresses

It all started at one boring physics class three months ago. I was writing down all the names of classic actresses I could remember. My teacher, another movie buff, also helped me remember some. I've been collecting names of classic actresses ever since (the rules are: must have been born before 1950, must have done at least one movie and must have an "about" page at IMDb, even if the informations are useless) and wanted to know if somebody can remember the ones that are missing. Here's the big… Continue

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 […]
