Just incredible to watch Chaney do all those foot manipulations, such as smoking a cigarette with his toes. I love THE UNKNOWN and watched it almost obsessively when I first discovered it. Although I believe Chaney did a few "foot manipulations" in a couple scenes, there was a body double by the na...

While you're waiting, has anyone checked out Call the Midwife on PBS? http://www.pbs.org/programs/call-the-midwife/ I've been watching it. Really liked the first 2 episodes, 3rd episode was OK. Not sure how it would appeal to men since the characters are nuns, nurse/midwives, tenement women giving ...

How fabulous! Congratulations Moira - how cool that they used YOUR pic in the Now Playing guide - you look pretty much as I've imagined you all these years.
It has been many years since I saw this version, and I must confess that my strongest memory, in spite of the fact that I adore Margaret Sullavan, is the scene which I recall being the opening with Franklin Pangborn. He of course was a great comic character actor appearing in over 200 movies from t...
Hey JF - Ya know, I was poking around on YTB yesterday after I posted here, and found this too! I had no idea this film has been up since 2009!? Oh well, I am really glad I saw it on the big screen, because as you can see, this copy is pretty washed out and almost unwatchable. Believe me, the party ...
Palo Alto’s Universal series opened this week with ONLY YESTERDAY (1933). All the films being screened are 35mm prints provided directly by Universal, according to The Stanford management. The print quality of ONLY YESTERDAY was very good – no scratches, skips and only slightly soft. This was my fir...

I saw ONLY YESTERDAY this past week; I've posted a write-up under the DRAMA thread.
The first interview clip of Marc Platt is taken from the marvelous documentary BALLET RUSSES (2005). This film is an extremely informative source for a whole slew of famous ballet dancers of the era, and the most I learned about Marc (aside from what I knew of his film appearances) was gleaned from ...
