  1. Eleanor seems to really use her entire body where Ruby pretty much plunks along doing a very strong, distinctive tap. There is something very unique when Eleanor just leans back and glides.

  2. I also wanted to add I have a long-term prejudice against Ernst Lubitsch. He left grease marks on Mary Pickfords dove grey wallpaper. Apparently he like fried potatoes, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He was directing her in Rosita, her least favorite film. Just saying....

The Louise Brooks docu that was shown on TCM some years ago was also fantastic-Based mostly on Barry Paris's book. I have a boxed set about Keystone that I am very fond of as well. It shows a lot of clips but has a very good underscore c
  6. The Big Parade--I have Mockery on my DVR to watch as soon as I can.
