HEAVEN CAN WAIT

THe funniest sports movies are the series of Goofy shorts that cover most sports: "How to Play Baseball," "THe Art of Skiing", "Hockey Homicide," etc, although the most appropriate right now is "The Olympic Champ"

I saw Mardi Gras first run at a movie theater. I was a little kid and I was enthralled with its spectacular Technicolor. But I was also impressed with the performance of Gary Crosby. It's too bad  he wasn't able to overcome his family issues because he had good charisma on camera.

 At the time I thought the movie was really " with it " because it had 2 singing Teen Idols: Pat Boone and Tommy Sands in the cast.

 But how was I to know that this was Edmund Goulding's last film and that he was one of those old-time directors from the silents who have gone on to direct those big movie classics like Dark Victory with Bette Davis and Grand Hotel with Greta Garbo?

 I sometimes wonder what Goulding must have thought of his last movie?

Yes, I wasn't aware it was Goulding's last movie. He died a year later, so he might have directed more. He didn't even get a chance to move into television like so many of his contemporaries did, finding new life after their careers had gone into decline. 

I read something where Joan Fontaine said she requested him for THE CONSTANT NYMPH because he was known for detailed rehearsals before putting the actors in front of the camera. She wanted a perfectionist to ensure the story would turn out exactly as it should. And it did turn out wonderfully. Like all his films.

There's an Elizabeth Taylor movie called LOVE IS BETTER THAN EVER. And an art film from the 90s called LOVE IS THE DEVIL, which always seemed like an amusing title.
