CLAUDETTE COLBERT FOR STOM


Recommended Posts

Here is a lady who deserves recognition.  She was a wonderful dramatic and comedic actress. Her problem is that she was not an MGM Star.  What a shame to ignore such talent.

Colbert was SOTM in March 2005 so it has been a while.    She has been featured in SUTS a few times.

Yes,  one of the reasons TCM doesn't feature Colbert more often is that she in the 30s and 40s she made films mostly for Paramount and not many for the studios that fall under the so called Turner library of films (WB, RKO and MGM).

Sadly this is true for many actors.

She did make a few films at MGM, however. Things like BOOM TOWN; IT'S A WONDERFUL WORLD and THE SECRET HEART.

 W.C. Fields, Mae West, and Bing Crosby also did many of their films at Paramount.
