  1. There is a mention of the ice being painted black in the film, glad to know the reason.
  2. No it is not a documentary, but at the end there is vintage footage of the ice skater.
  3. I think her estranged brother coauthored the bio. I read that it contained many falsehoods, still I would like to read it.
  4. Caesar co starred in a few of her films as well. He was also good pals with Tyrone.
  5. I would like to see Wintertime, in addition to Sun Valley Serenade. In the second film, Dorothy Dandridge and the Nicholas Brothers make cameos.
  6. I just saw her 2018 biopic Sonja: White Swan . Has anyone ever read her memoir or biographys? I admire her skating, and think her movies are fun to watch. I did not know Tyrone Powers was one of her beaus , until I took an interest in his career last year. I know they made a few films together. Getting back to her biopic, I would rate it a 6. Her parents were well heeled. Her dad made his fortune in brush manufacturing and furs. Her mom was born with a silver spoon. She and her brother Leif bought property in Oceanside, and named it Heineland. It is still around. Furthermor
  7. I think the movie came out in 1917, but I the title was " Why Change Your Wife"? Since I only saw her in" Sunset Blvd", I was not too familiar with her work. The movie was really cute and interesting. In addition, I am also a Chicago girl, and only live a few blocks from the former Essanay studios where she started the genesis of her career. I believe Gloria was raised around Wrigley Field which is also a few miles away. If I am not mistaken, her home is still there.
  8. I really want to see "Sun Valley Serenade", I had no idea she starred in a" Little Rascals" film. "Bright Road" is really good. I have to catch her biopic starring Halle Berry as well. "Paper Doll" was also a cute short film. I like the Mills Brothers as well.
  9. She was a child/ teen silent star who died of TB at 14. There is a really good book about her and other lesser known stars that came out in 2011. I have to look up the title again. She hailed from my hometown of Chicago. There a few tributes and surviving movie clips on YouTube. She died in the 20's.
  10. This film came out in 2018, unfortunately the library DVD was faulty, and stopped mid film. I never got a chance to rewatch it. I do recall it was about a single Algerian immigrant mother raising her teenage daughters in France, and the hardships they faced. A decent film.
  11. I like a few Indian dramas and minor Bollywoods as well. Sometimes the singing and dancing get on my nerve. I came across a good but controversial film named "Sins" on YouTube last month. The Thor nbirds is kiddie stuff compared to this film. It involves a Catholic priest and village girl involved in a torrid affair. It came out around 2004. It was banned in India, that tells you how racy it is.

    STELLA MARIS (1918)

    It is too bad Pickford and Temple never worked together.

    STELLA MARIS (1918)

    I saw it on YouTube last week. I agree a very good but slightly controversial film from that era. The film highlights such substance abuse and marital discard, a rarity back then. I was shocked Unity killed herself, after killing the evil wife that nearly her to death. Now I want to see " Little Annie Roonie".
  14. I read that one of his grand daughters was officially declared dead a few years ago. She went missing back in either the late 90's or early 00's. I think her mother was his eldest daughter. That is very sad. Does his son still act? I have not heard about him in a long time.
  15. I watched it briefly. I will eventually watch the whole thing.
