The Golden Age of Hollywood

Not Tonight, but new WINGS is finally coming!

Don't expect a new transfer of WINGS to air on TCM this evening. Sadly, It isn't going to happen. However, While it is the same old, same old tonight, there is very big late breaking news on WINGS. Presumably it will be coming to DVD and Blu-ray before to long now. Check out this quote by David Shepard this morning. It is the first real confirmation that Paramount is indeed doing something major with WINGS. Now if we could just get a similar announcement concerning THE BIG PARADE, from Warners. That is taking much to long in my view.

"Paramount is working on its own version of WINGS using the Academy's beautiful tinted restoration, a new orchestral recording of the 1927 score by J. S.Zamecnik (which is wonderful) and sound effects as done in the roadshow screenings which will be executed with modern technology by Ben Burtt. Be patient."

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 […]
