For everything FRANCHOT TONE, check out http://franchottone.blogspot.co.uk
There are lots of articles about Franchot and his career in the Blogathon from 21-23 April,2017. Film reviews include DANGEROUS, PHANTOM LADY , THREE COMRADES.
I’ve always enjoyed LADY IN THE LAKE even though Robert Montgomery’s subjective camera technique wasn’t entirely successful.
One of the funniest film reviews I have ever read is of this film, by D. Cairns of Shadow Play blog (http://dcairns.wordpress.com)
Some of the comments in the post had me laughing out loud and I hope the blogger won’t mind me quoting a few – though I hope everyone will check out the entire post.
…….”Montgomery plays Marlowe as a man who has a slow and ungainly manner of opening doors!”
…….”The cops try to give the camera the third degree, and Nolan, already having suffered the indignity of being punched by a movie camera, now gets kicked by it!”
……..”Marlowe gets into his car,easing himself behind the wheel with all the nimbleness of a 35mm camera!”
The article is called THE PRIVATE EYE,LIKE SOME STRANGE BALLOON… Full link opposite under ‘Posts I like.’
Oh to have been at the 2017 TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood.
Still, a full report with lots of photos of the Festival can be seen at Laura’s blog (http://laurasmiscmusings.blogspot.co.uk)
My envy level was high when Laura described seeing THEODORA GOES WILD, introduced by Melvyn Douglas’s granddaughter, Illeana Douglas.
A great blog. Laura is such a prolific writer.
