(First Joan Crawford quote since I’ve been posting these spoilers!  What a dramatic dame she was.  On screen and in real life.  She liked marrying men to four year terms.  I kid you not!  Douglas Fairbanks Jr., 1929 – 1933.  Franchot Tone, 1935 – 1939.  Phillip Terry, 1942 – 1946.  And, Alfred Steele, 1955 – 1959.  Okay, so the last guy up and died on her, but she did have a reputation for being . . . difficult.  Apparently, she was quite the dancer though.  And, she used that skill to make herself a star.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    She was an amazing realist, very dramatic and perhaps the best actress of that film-making age. But that combined is how she built her audience which still loves her until today, is it not? The best old Hollywood actors and actresses are only legends now, but they are eternal stars to all frequent moviegoers. Especially when compared to what modern Hollywood feeds us now! Where are the quality stories, line-up and films in general? Unfortunately, I strongly doubt Hollywood Future can bring us any better…not unless they change their priorities.

    Laurie H.,

    I think movies today shy away from the overly dramatic stylings of that earlier cinematic age. Back in the golden age of Hollywood they were acting almost as if they were acting on stage. Everything needs to be a little exaggerated when you act on stage. You have to play to the back row, so to speak. Most movies today rely more on special effects than on intelligent dialogue, but there are still good movies out there if you look for them.
