  1. I agree with Tom, you must see Kings Row. It has great scope and covers a lot of time and space, the way the classic movies did so well. Ann Sheridan is really wonderful. Evidently they wanted Tyrone Power and Henry Fonda for the Cummings and Reagan roles, but that couldn't be arranged. Cummings and Reagan don't mar the proceedings too much, although the others would have been better. And it has some great character actors. Korngold's great score is curiously similar to a certain famous score that was written by John Williams decades later.
  2. Kaaren Verne has a lovely supporting role in Kings Row. She plays the girl who gets Bob Cummings at the end.

  7. One of the members of the great Monty Python team has died age 77. "Renowned for his depictions of middle-aged housewives, often with hysterically falsetto voices, it was Jones who would famously scream the iconic line, "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy," while playing mother to the titular not-quite-son-of-god in 1979 comedy Monty Python's Life of Brian, which he also directed. The line twice was voted the funniest in film history in U.K. polls." https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/jan/22/terry-jones-monty-python-founder-and-life-of-brian-director-dies-aged-77
