This Week's Top 10
My Top 10 Favorite Films
I've loved movies for as long as I can remember. For the past 20 years, I've worked for several of the major studios, including MGM, Warner Bros. & 20th Century Fox in their Home Entertainment divisions. The 1930's is my favorite decade for movies and I'm really partial to pre-code movies & Film Noir.
I'll be blogging about Blood Simple in the 'Till Death Us Do Part Blogathon on 7/24
I'll be blogging about The Red Shoes in the En Pointe: The Ballet Blogathon on 8/4 & 8/5.
Joan Crawford said she could never compete with Shearer because Shearer was sleeping with the boss (Irving Thalberg), but Shearer's depth as an actress ran far deeper than mere nepotism. She was always meticulously prepared and put forth great effort to present her very best, whether working with directors, cameramen, lighting technicians or photographers. Her 5 Oscar nominations in the '30's may not completely reflect her talent level, but the nominated performances represent a wide range of characters, each played with professionalism, grace & in some cases a daring sensuality.
