The Golden Age of Hollywood

Hi everyone! The big day is finally here!

Please be sure to pay a visit to the Pure Entertainment Preservation Society, run by our friend and fellow GAOH member, Tiffany Brannan.

Tiffany graciously accepted my contribution, an examination of DODSWORTH (1936); it was a bit out of the scope of the Breening Blogathon Rules, but I did relate it to the Production Code warnings about divorce and infidelity.

Be sure to read it and check out the other contributions (current and yet to come) at:

https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2017/10/...

I'll post it here as well, during the coming week.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I must wait by the phone to see if Warners' is picking up my option.

Yours for bigger and better silents,

Bill Ferry

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 […]
