HOT & BOTHERED: The Films of 1932

🙂 WELCOME. PREPARE TO BE HOT and BOTHERED. 🙂

Aurora and I have done our best to put you in that “pre~code” mood. And 1932 is just the year that can do it, too. 

HOT & BOTHERED BLOGATHON ~ ( Shanghai Express )  HOT & BOTHERED BLOGATHON ~ ( A Farewell to Arms )  HOT & BOTHERED BLOGATHON ~ ( Call Her Savage )  HOT & BOTHERED BLOGATHON ~ ( Sign of the Cross )

I am pleased as punch to have been co-hosting this event with one of the classic-film writers I truly admire. I’ve wanted to work with her since forever but her dance card was always full. Well now I have. Her blog, ONCE UPON A SCREEN, has been involved with such annual stalwart events as the ‘What A Character‘, ‘Hollywood’s Hispanic Heritage‘ and the ‘31 Days of Oscar‘ Blogathons. When I told Aurora I wanted to talk about films from 1932, a year we both think was pretty pivotal in the annals of pre~code, she came up with the title of my blogathon and agreed to co~host it with me. If you ever need an Ideas Maven or advice on blogathon etiquette folks, Aurora ( aka Citizen Screen) is your gal.

If you go to Fernando’s Corner here on my blog, you can read his take on three films from 1932: The Animal Kingdom” “Hot Saturday” and “Madame Butterfly.” 

I realize a blogathon is only as good as the writers who choose to join it. So below is the roster of all the bloggers who participated in our event this past weekend. I’m sending a big thank you to each and every one of them. We’ve got a wide, delectable variety of films from 1932 for you to luxuriate in…but don’t think you’ve got to rush. Take your slow, sweet time. I mean, that’s the only way to be Hot and Bothered, isn’t it.

    • I can’t think of a better way to start the morning than by being hot and bothered. And look who you’ve brought to get us this way. Jean Harlow. Whether she’s a blonde or a red~head, Harlow gets the job done. Thank you Sarah, for taking us down in the basement with you and for contributing to our blogathon of films from 1932. I’ll read your steamy account while sitting in front of my fan!

    • What manner of Walter Huston will we see in THIS one. Bring it on!! ( “American Madness” ~ this title feels like what we’re in the throes of here in America right now. Madness. ) Thanks so much for your contributing to this…your FIRST blogathon. Whoa!! First of many more, I hope.

  10. Hi Theresa. Just letting you know that my entry will be a little late, and won’t be published until tomorrow. I was unexpectedly called out today, which has left me with little time. My article on “Red Dust” is almost finished, but it’s getting really late over here in Australia now, and I want to give it the justice it deserves. I haven’t forgotten. Hope that’s alright.

    • Hello Virginie. I tell ya, “RICH & STRANGE has GOT to be the most unsettling film Hitchcock ever made. ( I’m not counting the chills and spills of “PSYCHO.” ) Thank you very much for perhaps introducing something new to even Hitchcock fans.
