Broadway Gondolier (1935) - reviewed by George

By the 1940s Dick Powell was very effective as various weathered and weary Private Eyes, including Phillip Marlowe. But in his 1930′s musicals that I had seen, I thought he came across as being about 15 years old, and hardly worthy of interest to fine-looking leading ladies like Ruby Keeler. 575 more words


Gold Diggers of 1937 (Lloyd Bacon, 1936)

As usual with films which have dates in the title, Gold Diggers of 1937 was actually made the previous year. It stars Joan Blondell, one of my favourite actresses, opposite her real-life husband of the time, Dick Powell. 1,075 more words
