my top ten

a movie can be perfect. when i began this blog i had a very long list of movies i wanted to share with you. i miss writing those postings full of the excitement of writing about movies i love. they are all still there to read about if you go to the early period of my blog. i hope you have enjoyed 'a look back in anger.' i surely have loved creating it.

nasty bit of work

what a beautiful actress anne bancroft was. actor frank langella, who knew her very well, reveals many sides of her character in his book, 'dropping names.' it seems that she was not thoroughly unlike 'mrs. robinson', the woman she played so perfectly in 'the graduate.'

thanks to simon and garkunkel's song of the same name, 'mrs. robinson' lives on when i tune into the sixties station.

bottle red

jean harlow was not only terrific as a blonde. i watched this fun film again today. she is undeniably adorable as a red headed gold digger.

1932's 'red-headed woman' also stars the intriguingly odd chester morris.
