  3. This is one of those things that truly sets TCM apart, if it wasn't already!!! Niven Busch???!!! Get outta town!!! But that's exactly who TCM is doing a daytime tribute for next Friday, April 4!!! Since the message boards might be down most of next week, I thought I'd give a shout out now so folks interested in can get those DVR's a-programmed!!


    HUGE block of pre-codes and 30's flicks in this tribute, starting off at 6am with SCARLET DAWN from 1932, and starring Douglas Fairbanks, Jr, Nancy Carroll, Lilyan Tashman and Guy Kibbee!!


    Next up, it's Joan Blondell and George Brent in a comedy/mystery from 1932, MISS PINKERTON!!! This flick totally rocks and I am SO looking forward to seeing it again!!!


    Joan returns in another Niven Busch screenplay, this time with Cagney himself, in HE WAS HER MAN (1934)!!! Then it's Bette Davis, Charles Farrell, Ricardo Cortez, Glenda Farrell, and Allen Jenkins in a gangster drama, THE BIG SHAKEDOWN (1934)!!! Guy Kibbee mixes it up with Aline MacMahon in BABBITT (1934)!!! And I'd be hanging on for Pat O'Brien and Joan Blondell in the 1939 flick, OFF THE RECORD!!!


    I dunno know about all y'all, but I'm def going to be groovin' it hard next Friday during this awesome tribute!!!

  4. Wow, thanks to the Louis Wolheim tribute, there are silents all morning into the afternoon!!! Right now ORPHANS OF THE STORM is wrapping up, and then it's the silent 1922 SHERLOCK HOLMES with Lionel Barrymore, coming up at 10:45am!!! Then it's my girl, Marie Prevost, in THE RACKET (1928) at 12:15pm!!! Silent fest!!!


    And after the silent fest, it's early talkies fest with more Louis Wolheim, and I can totally dig on that!!!


    At 1:45pm, it's THE SHIP FROM SHANGHAI from 1930, starring Conrad Nagel and Kay Johnson!! Then Evelyn Brent and Joel McCrea get it on in Alaska in THE SILVER HORDE, also from 1930!!! Then at 4:30pm, it's Jean Arthur, my main man Robert Armstrong, and Hugh Herbert in DANGER LIGHTS, another 1930 gem!!! And finally, up at 5:45pm is Louis with John Gilbert, Leila Hyams, Anita Page, and Marie Prevost in GENTLEMAN'S FATE from 1931!!! Woooohooooo!!!


    Another totally rockin' day on TCM!!! Groovin' hard!!!

  5. This flick is SO cool!!! I love all the WW Perry Mason flix, but this first one is the best, IMO!!! A true pre-code twist at the end, wow!!! I love the dudes who work for Perry, and though Della seems kind of stand-offish throughout most of the flick, you know where her lips wanna be smoochin' when all is said and done!!


    Great pre-code mystery flick with lots of good courtroom drama, to boot!!!

  6. I'm SO digging on today's TCM lineup, two flix with WW and Mary Astor, UPPERWORLD and right now, THE CASE OF THE HOWLING DOG!!! Woooootttt!!! And earlier some rare early talkies, including SIN SHIP, THE ROyAL BED, SMART WOMAN and MEN OF CHANCE!!! Wowowowowowowow!!! Groovin' hard here!!!


    And coming up, with a break with Laurel and Hardy doing it up in a murder case, it's more Mary in some 30's flix, then Van Heflin and Mary team it up in the noir classic, ACT OF VIOLENCE, followed by two Van Heflin flix I've not seen before, THE OUTCASTS OF POKER FLAT (1937) and FLIGHT FROM GLORy (1937)!!! Wow!!!


    Lovin' TCM!!!

  7. This has totally been one of my all-time favorite SOTM months!!! Woohoooo!!!! TONS of pre-codes, early talkies and 30's flix, can't ever go wrong with that!!!


    Mary has never really been high on my radar, but I've come away from this month with a new-found appreciation for the breadth of her work! Awesome stuff, and one of the things TCM does so well in introducing some lesser lights who once were greater to fans of classic flix everywhere! TCM rules!
