  6. Thanks TB! Yes, Hopkins and Harrison together in a screwball comedy or drama, romantic or otherwise, would have been nice to see.
  7. Men Are Not Gods (1936) Miriam Hopkins went to England to film this romantic drama. A favor for the devoted wife of a fledgling actor brings Miriam’s character new friends, but also envelops her in a romantic triangle that turns dangerous. The love/sex dualism is presented as a male entitlement, but for women a painful bargain fraught with longing and loneliness. The mood is brightened by wry comedic touches, as well as lovely shots of London landmarks. Hopkins’ performance is made memorable by a scene in which she bluntly and powerfully confronts the one-sided choices women are asked to make
  8. Like Someone in Love (2012)
  9. Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013) Next: Another movie that contains "blue" or "blues" in the title
  10. The Believer (2001) Ryan Gosling as a Jewish anti-semite who joins neo nazis
  11. I consider Miriam Hopkins the quintessential Pre-Code actress. Sexy, smart, and direct, Miriam could seduce you one moment (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) and break your heart (The Story of Temple Drake) in the next. I would have loved to have seen her in an all-out musical. Something like 42nd Street would have been a perfect vehicle. Great choice for SOTM.
