  1. - you may all be surprised by this, however, even though Universal (which owns all 30-48 Par) is castigated as the ultimate pariah of cinephiles (especially those with a classic/precode predilection), it has actually released more pre-code films on authorised DVD than any other studio (one should include the forthcoming Grant release). Moreover, at a very affordable price, and such gems as FORBIDDEN LOVE ( and by license to Criterion TROUBLE IN PARADISE) that had never made any home-medium before. Is it time to say HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD, HOORAY FOR UNIVERSAL (sorry I posted this message

  3. I managed to tape a beaut copy of this film. love Constance
  4. Just watch ISLAND OF LOST SOULS (which by the way needs a great restoration - Karl Struss's photography is thereal. In 1997 I saw a pristine print in Melbourne, and you all don't know what you are missing). Laughton plays the perfect camp-colonial sadist. As usual, definitely over-acts. KONGO always amazes me. TRADER HORN, with those "savages" about to cannibalize the lovely female lead (can't remember her name and too lazy to IMDB
  5. - can we start an inter-species thread that is Cary grant falling for Marlen-a in a gorilla outfit in Blonde Venus or Kong seducing Fay
  6. I've always had a soft spot for Thelma Todd and Joan Blondell. The sophisticates are Kay Francis and Norma Shearer. The whores, Miriam Hopkins and Clara Bow, and there is no better **** than constance Bennett
  7. Hottest interracial romance is definitely between Barbara Stanwyck and that Swede silent idol Nils Asther in THE BITTER TEA OF GENERAL YEN. The film IS Capra's masterpiece IMO, and Stanwyck's **** dream sequence just ravishing. The whole film is hauntingly photographed by the master J August in soft focus.
  8. The precode that got me hooked was undoubtedly "Three on a Match". Seeing Bogie hooked on coke and Dvorak give one of the great performances of the 30's. And I just wasn't expecting that ending. I can't wait for Warners to release it on DVD in a clear transfer. The TCM print needs restoration. Other precodes I rate highly are: - Madam Satan - Bed of Roses and ofcourse De Mille's Sign of the Cross, with allthat Sadesque debauchery.
