TCM and Other Sources for Classic Film

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to these, especially THE THIN MAN and MR. BLANDINGS BUILDS HIS DREAM HOUSE.

THE THIN MAN and MR. BLANDINGS BUILDS HIS DREAM HOUSE may be two of the most perfect movies ever made, in my opinion.  I've seen them both many, many times and I just love them.  Myrna in both of them is part of what makes them great.  Exceptional actress.

Agree. They would not have been what they are with another actress playing the wife. Same goes for her work in THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES. She was essential to the success of these films, and a huge reason they retain such a classic status.

Even in "Midnight Lace" in a supporting role, her movie star allure is dominant.

Nice picture of Lionel Atwill, TopBilled. I don't recall ever seeing him that young before.

Thanks. Because many of his films are under 75 minutes, we get 16 Lionel Atwill movies squeezed into 24 hours tomorrow. I wonder if this is the most that's ever aired on a single day in August.

One often realizes that certain actors, not really Lionel per se, but ones who started in movies at much more advanced ages, were young once. I'm thinking about people like Harry Davenport or Clem Bevans or Charley Grapewin, grandpa types you know, and they were old in their most famous roles even in the 1920's to 1930's. I love looking up young photos of them and in some history of the American theatre book I have with gobs of photos from plays way back in the 1800's up through the early 1900's I found a photo of Harry Davenport, where he looks about 14 years old! It is adorable and fun to see. Thanks for posting such great photos of stars for us, TB that often are very unique and not so familiar.

You are welcome.

Yes many of the character actors and actresses started as leading men and women of the theater. They grew into those older roles.

I am sure young people who first watched Joan Blondell on the TV western series Here Come the Brides didn't know she had played ingenue roles decades earlier. They only knew her as an aging character actress, not a lead star of movies from back in the day.

Yes, and people like William Bendix had become a lovable character by the time the tv generation was growing up, in things like "The Life of Riley" whereas old movie fans from the earlier decades remembered him much more for serious and sometimes frightening roles. Another person who was always old, stayed old and never changed was good old, Edward Everett Horton. Kids watching "Rocky and Bullwinkle" probably never thought the narrator was from an old Fred Astaire film, if they even knew who Fred Astaire was. And look at Eve Arden's long career, but she was known later as Miss Brooks. It's fun to find those young photos of stars who seemed perpetually geriatric I think. And you do a great job of posting great info and photos!

LITTLE WOMEN '33 is such a perfect film. It couldn't be any better.

"The Sun Comes Up" with Claude Jarman, Jr.!

 

The Sun Comes Up was the last film for MacDonald.    Like Lloyd Nolan everyone was overshadowed by a boy and his dog.    Alan Ladd was teased about this for the film The Proud Rebel but he had a great come-back line; well at least the boy is my boy.

Love Walter! Great line up as well (exception being the awful ENSIGN PULVER and I admit I haven't seen ISLAND OF LOVE).

Especially love THE ODD COUPLE (he and Jack Lemmon always had such great chemistry) and THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE (love Denzel, but nobody beats Matthau's tough, no-nonsense demeanor in here).

ISLAND OF LOVE isn't bad. Kind of a fun diversion with Robert Preston playing the lead.

I love THE FORTUNE COOKIE. And yes this original version of THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE is the best.

In "Written on the Wind", Dorothy Malone as Marylee Hadley was unforgettable.
