I'm surprised! But I want to find out for sure so that I can know whether someone correctly answered my trivia question over on Screwball Comedies. As quizmistress I need to have my facts straight. :-) I did an Internet search, of course, but I couldn't find detailed enough information on the plot.
Thanks, Bill, for your quick reply!
Hi, Bill. I haven't been very much in touch with my GAOH friends in a while. I hope all is well with you.
I was wondering if you've ever seen Dance, Girl, Dance. It's a Dorothy Arzner film that stars Maureen O'Hara. I have a little question, and thought you would be my best bet at finding out the answer (since you seem to have seen everything!). The question is whether Ralph Bellamy woos Maureen but loses her to Louis Hayward in this film. Do you know?
I see I missed your birthday. Hope it was a happy one!
Thanks Bill. My videos are available to all movie enthusiasts and you are welcome. Yes, Carolyn of the Profane Angel is well known to me. We subscribe to each other's Youtube Channels and we are 'Friends' here at the Golden Age site.
I hope you continue to enjoy my little tributes. I have many projects in the pipeline and if there any names you would like to see in my Movie Legends series, just drop me a line.
I have already produced two new titles RICHARD ARLEN and NILS ASTHER for another Golden Age member (which have been released here but not yet on Youtube) so any new names are always welcome.
I have to say that I was a bit taken back by the scene you mentioned but I put it down to the fact it WAS pre-code. Quite obviously this would not be allowed post code nor would any court or enquiry board allow a witness to arrive in such obvious state of duress and testify. Well, that's the movies and it is an excellent example of pre code.
Yes, I have seen Hot Saturday and I enjoyed it although a bit implausible in my opinion. I thought it was fun to see Randolph Scott with Cary since they were good friends and shared a residence, but that is another story
I haven't commented on this before, but I love your blog posts on what you're watching. I appreciate that you flesh your blog posts out with background information rather than just giving a thumbs up or thumbs down. Your reviews are straightforward yet personal and really make me feel as if we could be discussing the film over a cup of coffee. Makes for nice reading! I also envy how many films you get to watch!
Absolutely! 1930s and 1940s are among my favourite films. Those were the days of good scripts and good screenwriters. Yes, I also like to collect and/or watch precodes. Most of the ones I have don't really cost that much because I trade for them and they usually are from TCM screenings.
Screwball comedies that sounds great. I will certainly have a look see.
My favourite films are those made in the 1930s and 1940s of all genres and I have currently just about 1000 from that period. Thanks to trades I will be adding several more of Joan's films and I recently made a deal to acquire these so I will be busy watching..

Hi, Bill! I'd love to hear about your collection! I collect, too. My collection isn't huge, but it's specialized--mostly comedies from the 30s and 40s. I'm a member of the Screwball Comedies group. If you're interested, please join us!
Hmm! I can't say as I do know any conventions but I belong to a few internet interest groups such as Yahoo. I also trade DVD discs mostly with contacts I have met online at the movie swap group. It is not very active these days because most of the good traders deal with each other via direct email. One fellow lives in Toronto BTW.

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 […]
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 […]
