The Golden Age of Hollywood

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 list:

That's an amazing list! I thought of a couple you don't have: Ellen Drew, who was in Isle of the Dead, Christmas in July and Stars in My Crown (among others); Barbara Hale, who was in The Jackpot and many other films. I think that some of those actresses don't fit your own definition, as they weren't born before 1950, such as Tatum O'Neal. It seems there are a lot of modern actresses in your list. Great list, though, and what a great way to amuse yourself in physics class! I do something similar. While exercising (which I find boring), I try to think of as many films of a particular actor as I can. Today while swimming in the pool I was trying to think of Ray Milland films and Joel McCrea films.

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 […]
