At the Movies

Considering my posts this week, you’ve probably guessed the feature today is a British film (even though Dark Shadows is American, the gothic residence had heavy English overtones). And in thinking about interiors, I considered many of the movies shot at grand castles and estates but decided on one with a more modest setting.…

At the Movies

I am thrilled to start off my holiday movie reviews with this classic Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy romp. It is one of those movies I just never tire of!! In fact, it may very well be my favorite of the nine movies they made together!…

At the Movies

I was going to feature a different movie today that was more directly related to Thanksgiving but as we cleaned up after our turkey dinner, it was clear that this had to be the one. My daughter put her play list into the stereo system and as I stood at the sink, all the kids cleared the table, grooving to the beat as they brought the dishes through.…

June Bride, from 1948, was not one of Davis’ major hits, but was an improvement over her previous film, Winter Meeting.…

At the Movies

One of the diaries included in the Morgan exhibition that I covered yesterday is that of Charlotte Bronte. And although Charlotte was the inveterate chronicler in her family, her sister Emily is my scribe of choice. Wuthering Heights is her single literary classic and the film (which is based on only a portion of the novel) definitely ranks in my top 10 all time favorites.…

Enchanted Cottage

I am so excited to tell you that one of my favorite old movies is finally out on DVD. I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival for years. (It was evidently released at the end of last year but I didn’t realize until recently). …
