Just saw the comments about one of my favorite Pre-Code actresses, the beautiful and talented Helen Twelvetrees. I have many of her films but am hoping too that we will get a copy of The Cat Creeps! I think I read somewhere that it is a remake of Cat and the Canary '27. Speaking of Laura LaPlante, I too enjoyed her performance in The Cat and the Canary. I have several of her films.
Florence Bates, a very talented actress of the 40's and 50's is highly underrated. She was an excellent Mrs. Van Hopper in Rebecca '40. Whether a forbidding wealthy snob or a gentle person (The Second Woman) she turned in a fine performance. She was great in Saratoga Trunk as well.
I love to collect 30's and 40's films, which are my favorite film decades, though I wasn't born yet. Also, I enjoy many 50's and 60's situation comedies which are also underrated. My sister and I loved The Honeymooners, Our Miss Brooks, Topper, The Life of Riley, My Little Margie, etc. Though we enjoyed I Love Lucy we also watched many of these other programs growing up in the 50's and 60's. Some of these programs are released on DVD, but I am still waiting for others; The Life of Riley, Our Miss Brooks, Mr. and Mrs. North, etc.
