Okay. “Don’t know much about history,” as the old Sam Cooke song goes. I hope to learn something in this Classic Movie History Project Blogathon that’ll teach me about Hollywood throughout the decades. Click on this banner, and get yourself a good dose of knowledge.
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.
The sultry “Bolero” the light Terpsichorean “Gay Divorcee” the dramatic “Of Human Bondage” and the classic Oscar-winning screwball “It Happened One Night” among others, made their debut in 1934. I’m doing a little better; seen about twenty films. Here are the list of my favorites. Don’t worry…I have more lined up on my DVR to devour.
