I just caught the last half hour of "The Last of Mrs. Cheney" (from your list) the other day on TCM. It was really great -- extremely well acted in the supporting roles and also in the lead roles (Powell, Crawford, Robert Montgomery).

I hope you find it -- it will be a fine addition to your library-size, excellent collection. (I still can't get over that list of yours above).

"60. She Couldn't Take It (Woman Tamer)":

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 […]
