Come on, come on. Don’t get your face all scrunched up and twisted in a knot over my macabre little joke. You know not every woman is meant to be a mother, even if she does have the biology to become one. If you have or had a kind, loving mother, be happy, grateful, celebrate her. Give your mom a hug if you can.
I don’t know why Colbert was Oscar’d for “IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT” when clearly, her performance the year before in “TORCH SINGER” ( 1933 ) puts her through her paces royally, and shows her off to good advantage in a grand way.
Hi – I started off my sixth month of blogging by telling you my favorite films made in the 1930’s. I don’t know if you had a chance to go through it because it was lot of information. But if you did, thank you, and you could compare your list to mine. ( How crazy off am I? ) To do this list, I pulled out my old Pyramid publishing book which I bought back in 1978. I skimmed through it to make sure I wasn’t missing anything and came up with my final tally. Below are my ten tip top top ten favorite films for each year of the 1930’s.
Folks, for my money “BOMBSHELL” ( 1933 ) is a qualitative, unequivocal hit. Loud, shrill, over-the-top, shrieking, sharp and most of all…funny? It’s those very elements that offers up my enjoyment of this movie. This in no short part is because JEAN HARLOW carries this motion picture from here to Kingdom come.
