Naked Constance Bennett Destroys Editing

THE COMMON LAW is an RKO-Pathe pre-code featuring a skinny, tousled, painfully young Joel McCrea (whose acting, however, is exactly as it would remain, which is to say, just great) as a painter in a Paris garret and a young, skinny, non-tousled Constance Bennett as his life model. 356 more words

Stranger On Horseback (1955)

Surprisingly short western at 65 minutes for a Joel McCrea oater from director Jacques Tourneur.

While no where near the best from either of these two it does offer a slightly different style western from a story by Louis L’Amour. 547 more words

Daily Take

Dynamite (1929)

This post is a consequence of the last film review I did: that of the 1966 Dharmendra-Rajshree starrer, Mohabbat Zindagi Hai. A ‘marriage of convenience’ theme about an heiress who must marry in a hurry in order to inherit the wealth due to her—and chooses a man on death row as her husband, so that she can legally get her money, but is conveniently widowed. 2,796 more words
