  1. Hello Classic Movie Lovers, I am in search of a film by the name of Marry The Girl from 1937. It was a B film that starred Carol Hughes, Frank McHugh, Mary Boland, Hugh Herbert, and Mischa Auer. Carol Hughes is my grandmother and I've collected most of her films but lost most of them in a fire, so in starting back collecting again. If you could please guide me to the right source to attain this film, I would so much appreciate it. Thanks Alica - dewberrysquish@aol.com
  2. I agree. Please show some more Vitaphone shorts, those shorts are so entertaining. I haven't been seeing Hal LeRoy and Dorothy Dare shorts in a long time and those 1930s early MGM musical shorts. You use to show those shorts on Sunday evenings or Sunday night. I would love to see the Vitaphone short The Winnah with Dorothy Dare,Arthur Lake, and Florence Lake, that was one of the most entertaining shorts I have ever seen, I haven't seen that on TCM in years. If you show it, please put it in the schedule so I don't miss it.
  3. I like Robert Mitchum's nonchalant approach to acting. He looks as if he's not trying but that's what's interesting about him because you wonder if he's acting or be himself. Upset, why?
  4. Nina Mae McKinney, Francine Everett, Gene Tierney, Marjorie White, Carol Hughes, Joan Blondell, Dick Powell,
  5. Something about nightclubs of the 30's and 40's are so beautiful to me. Everyone would dress in their best, a big band would be on the stand playing jazz or swing and women and men would be twirling not missing a beat in each other's arms, everyone would enjoy each other's company. Nightclubs today are too scary to go into. Everytime I turn on the TV, someone got into a fight in a nightclub or someone shot and innocent people got killed. It seems decent people don't go to nightclubs anymore because it's too wild but back in the day people of all ages could congregate together. One of my fa
  6. I can't see how people can love Carole Lombard and Marion Davies so much but not put Joan Blondell in the same category as them. She was good in everything she did!
  7. It would be excellent if Paramount restore and release the early pre-code, early talkie movies with musical shorts as an extra. Many bootlegs are sold on ebay and not in the best condition.
  8. I kind of caught the Jessie Matthews and Robert Young movie when it was almost over but WOW what a dancer. She wowed me. Ginger Rogers move out the way. No wonder Jessie was called The Dancing Diviniety. She was a big movie star in her country and she had some popularity here too. Fred Astaire wanted to dance with Jessie, Hollywood wanted to bring her over to this country to make her a movie star but it didn't happen. You all are in for a treat if you see her dance. She's magical. Her dancing is so artful. I wish TCM would show one of her fillms one day.
  9. I appreciate the rare films TCM has been sneaking in and the shorts that I can't find anywhere else. This month I've seen pre-code hard to find, rarely shown classics like Side Street, The Office Wife, Panama Flo, Young Bride, Road Show and a ton of entertaining shorts. I know I would like to see more on TCM because I trust TCM will give better quality and there's no other station I rather support but I do appreciate TCM. I can be patient because I don't want everything thrown at me at one time and I look forward to discovering new classic stars. I say appreciate TCM for what it is doing becau
  10. I been wanting FOX for so long. I think Comcast may carry the station one day. I would love to see the Alice Faye musicals, especially her early stuff lilke George White Scandals and King of Burlesque and see the Betty Grable and Carmen Miranda musicals and Linda Darnell, Gene Tierney, Dorothy Lamour movies. When AMC was showing Fox classic films I got a chance to see Alice Faye, Carmen Miranda, and Betty Grable but AMC changed and I couldn't enjoy their movies anymore and so for many years I put Faye, Grable, and Miranda on the shelf because about the time AMC went down, TCM was turned on
  11. Helen's life story is the typical actress story - wrong choice of men, too trusting, broken promises, abuse, depression, breakdowns, alcoholic, suicide attempts - you know the story! Her first marriage was when she was under 20, she married a guy who was an actor, last name was Twelvetrees, she kept his name but he caused her plenty of grief. He left her standing at the steps of the church after they were married while he went out drinking. So from that early on it was a bad marriage. He was jealous of her career going up because his was going nowhere so he abused her emotionally and physicall
  12. Joan Blondell was popular but never was regarded highly as Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, Myrna Loy, Kay Francis, Bette Davis, Ann Dvorak. Joan B. stayed in movies for 5 generations but never was considered great like Crawford and Bette Davis. She didn't have many iconic movies according to film historians. Joan B. is a familiar face and we love her but you hardly hear mention of her anywhere or appreciation for her versatility. Even in her time era she didn't get as much publicity and appear on covers of magazines as much, she wasn't taken seriously and even her studio wouldn't give her the
  13. Joan Blondell is another queen of pre-code. She did her best work in the pre-code era. In July TCM showed The Reckless Hour with Joan and Dorothy MacKaill as sisters again. That was another entertaining, short movie where Joan dominated each scene she was in. Blondell was great in Sinner's Holiday as the hussy, curvy girlfriend of James Cagney. That film was an early, beginning film for both. But they both shined. Cagney and Blondell were an ideal couple. They had chemistry even in that early film. Big City Blues is excellent and Three on a Match as you all know. Night Nurse is my favorite.
  14. I loved this movie. I had been on the net looking for info on Helen Twelvetrees and finally it seems she had a hard, hurtful life so her sad eyes were real and she fit those sad stories perfectly. The Young Bride was short but jam-packed. Helen and Eric Linden was an excellent couple. Arline Judge was a great hussy. Before Lana Turner or Elizabeth Taylor, she had 7 or 8 husbands. Those pre-code films were like soap operas but not too mushy and crybaby. Pre-code movies told it like it is, it was reality. Pre code films showed the world wasn't as innocent as we think. I guess that's why they wer
  15. Gene even looks good with her hair messy and not very glamourous. Dorothy Lamour is my favorite brunette too. It's something fun about her and she's sexy but in an innocent way. She's someone gals and guys like and I see why they liked her back then. I would love to see Dorothy Lamour with John Payne, Dennis Morgan, and John Garfield. I would have loved to see the chemistry with Linda Darnell and Clark Gable. In my opinion Tyrone Power's was a lucky man, he got to romance Lamour, Darnell, and Tierney. My favorite brunettes!
