Father Takes A Wife (1941) Arf

Menopausal shipping magnate dumps his business and distances himself from family because he wants to re-marry. The wife is a young Gloria Swanson playing a celebrated actress ready to retire with the old rich man of every woman's dream. She had money and success but wanted security. Adolphe Menjou was too cute and proper to put down but mama Swanson deserved to fuck his boring beautiful son. The film is split in three. Intro fears, adaptation, immigration, saving the planet and regretting it. Swanson and Menjou quarrel about masculinity and woman's liberation while receiving modern advice from the son and sweet wife. The event is Desi Arnaz as a stowaway on their honeymoon cruise where they decide to rescue him and offer him a lifestyle only the elite could afford. He can sing, shave and fuck like a bandit and he's pretty too. He deserved to fuck everybody including senior and junior. Swanson deserved to put him on her plate. Desi's accent was very light and we got to experience him how Lucy saw him. A beautiful ham. Its heart was distant, the comedy avoided the soul but the pretense was fun. 14-Mar-2022

Humoresque (1946) Howl

Like Batman I focused on a minor detail that should have gotten someone fired and the picture burnt. Ms. Crawford's leg looks beat up. Is it make-up? Is it black nail polish? Did she fall down a flight of stairs? Are those surgery scars? Is that why she's sitting? Was she secretly dirty? It looks awful. 14-Mar-2022
Should you expect payback for endorsing a genius? The film ponders it and applies solutions. John Garfield was born to play broke hot daddies with genius and obsessive compulsions. Joan Crawford always "manned up" to cure them. Ms. Crawford was almost comical until she put on a pair of glasses and blossomed into a bona fide artist. It was classic thespian. The parents' interjection seemed appropriate to the traditions of a hard working family. The family worked to establish a genius and survive. Mama and papa were the mama and papa that lucky children got. Papa looked out while mama cared a lot. Flashbacks were insightful. Ms. Crawford was fashionably tailored to her specifications. The story happens. Oscar Levant was the wisecracking loser that coasted from genius because he failed on his own. He spoke the uncomfortable words the "damned" never listened to because he wasn't "hot." Funny. 04-Mar-2022

Kathleen (1941) Woof

Growing moppet with a grudge against her invasive nanny, the privileged world that enslaves her and the widowed daddy that ignores her, retaliates. 12 year old booby traps a private box with written warnings to pique the witch's interest. It explodes. Opening the box proves the nanny's invasion of privacy and that the witch wasn't what daddy thought she was. They hire a female psychiatrist to observe and treat the child's behavior and change it for the better. Moppet warms to common sense, things with daddy improve and moppet is whirling in family heaven. A fourth wheel, a money grubbing whore, tears the moppet's fairy tale walls down and rebuilds them with shields of female entitlement by trying to marry the rich old bastard. Bitchfest! 01-Jan-2022

A Woman's Secret (1949) Arf

Music legend keeps her legacy alive by grooming a naive talent to sustain it. Legend shoots bankable star after an argument about control and declares it to the authorities. The police department is kind, gentle and slow in its investigation. The truth doesn't generate much ruckus, the mystery is simplified and the daddies aren't worth dying for. The Fowlers were adorable. 11-Sep-2021

Blonde Fever (1944) Arf

A retiring couple who own a roadside cafe have their marriage tested when they hire a pretty young thing as a waitress. Pretty young thing captures daddy's attention and his tongue. She's that baby smell all mothers talk about. Momma is an elegant insecurity blanket trying to outsmart the old man and his twit. The twit is playing her own game. Marry a hard working boy or wear diamonds on a leash. The choice is simple except the rich-appearing couple are broke. Her twinx fiancee gets hired by wife to keep girl confused and husband competing. Daddy gigolo gains accidental wealth which gives him choices, propels a generational class war and causes couple deconstruction. Mary Astor looked expensive. Gloria Grahame refused to be stupid but remained hot. Philip Dorn is that frightening beautiful thing that you fuck once and hope he forgets you. It spoke very comfortably about the relationship etiquette between aging, youth and sex. 08-Sep-2021

Lady Takes A Sailor, The (1949) Howl

Promising businesswoman gets hit by a submarine while sailing. A sunshine spitting mariner reluctantly rescues her. She becomes privy to a super submarine but its captain remains a mystery. Once ashore she galvanizes the press and her business support with the story of her rescue. They think she is lying so they cancel her. Business funding is out, the camera footage proving her truth has been stolen and she's losing followers. Meanwhile, daddy spit sunshine's career is being threatened if the public believes her. It's oneupmanship of a tingly kind, romance of another with two star legends willing to do anything for a laugh and adoration. Eve Arden never hurts. Screwball comedy masters. 06-Sep-2021

Velvet Touch, The (1948) Howl

Broadway legend destroys many lives by extinguishing her commitment to a producer/lover. She's in love with a big nosed romantic, wants to change producers and to take risks in her career. Love has changed her. Angelina's so giddy that she makes amends with her nemesis and promises to return Brad to her. She plots a clean break but reality throws a curveball. The mare and the stallion have a violent showdown. He shoots her with accountability bullets, she kills him with rage and the crime scene shifts towards Jennifer. Rosalind Russell is a sharp wit, a cutthroat and a talent. She doesn't want to go to prison but can't allow an innocent person to take the blame. Her act within the act is marvelous and addictive. You follow her til the wrenching curtain call where her choices are bad for everyone but her luck remains the same. Sydney Greenstreet as Captain Danbury was a playful bear who appeared smarter than written. Theresa Harris expended tears and wit as a black assistant. Dan Tobin was gay significant. Claire Trevor looked like the type you leave. The movie had bitchy guts and a tight pussy. 19-Jun-2021

East Side West Side (1949) Arf

Tricky dick (James Mason) happily married to a lesbian sophisticate is tempted by the return of his tempestuous alpha lesbian lover. Barbara Stanwyck and Van Heflin have comaraderie and the camera loved Ava Gardner and Cyd Charisse but the crime caper is overdone. The cameos from Fred Mertz as an ironic sober bartender and the best female cocksucker in Hollywood under an assumed name, lend it Pokemon status. The girls were fabulous, the film was okay. 28-May-2021

Primrose Path (1940) Howl

Tomboy receives her first kiss from a Tractor Daddy and it compels her to dress like a lady (tramp) and stalk him. He doesn't want a woman in his life he wants the shy saucy mouthed little girl he met. They marry, manage a cafe and are adorably happy until a family dinner with her family wrecks it. Tomboy's father is of honored intelligence with no job, lots of drink and no hope for a future. The mother is the ex famous beauty on the hill who gave up her dreams to feed her mother, two daughters, lousy husband and herself. Men with money escort them upstairs while the ladies snatch it. Grandma is a tacky invasion and the youngest is a brat spoiled by presents and groceries only an expert mother can bring. Ginger Rogers is swell proving she can do things herself, Joel McCrea is a giant worth looking up for and every character played to our sympathies. Fuck you, parents! 01-May-2021

Fallen Idol, The (1948) Howl

Ambassador's kid has the run of the mansion and the staff whilst the parents are away. The butler is a hero to the kid because he regales him with stories of how he murdered people in self-defense, allows him treats and spends quality time. Mrs. Butler is a stern enforcer, a mother sub slapper who fries animals and is scary film fun. Butler is having an affair that the child is privy to. The lady is introduced to the boy as the butler's "niece." The three go on outings together. Boy likes niece. Boy is having fun. The boy's slip of the tongue tips Mrs. Butler. She plots. Someone dies. The boy doesn't understand when to lie or tell the truth. The boy's isolation and loneliness happens in big spaces where the adults fuss over him but don't listen to a word he says. Grand camera work boosts everything. It's a trial of a little boy who was fed a pack of lies and whose wrong perception of adult things fucked them all up. 18-Apr-2021

Possessed (1947) Arf

Can a failed secret affair cause a woman temporary insanity? Sure. The film piles plenty of symptoms and Joan Crawford obsesses about inhabiting all of them. She's haunted, Scream Queen, scared, frightful, conniving, confused, grating, bitchy, mother farcical and "don't fuck with me" Joan. She splits every arc into a different character. It was brilliantly insane but it didn't work. The man that made her brain ache played the piano, was a wordmeister, could fuck and always looked tired. He dumps her on the eve of her first hallucination whilst continuing to remain in each other's lives. He's just as crazy as she is except he's not getting diagnosed because he is not a "woman." After being told countless of times that he would never love her, she marries an old rich bastard to get his goat, he "up yours" her by proposing to her stepdaughter and Ms. Joan has a ball going nuts. Unbelievable psychology and too much genre (drama, horror, mystery, crime, comedy, romance, musical, etc.) deflate it.

(People that are crazy don't know they're crazy.) 14-Apr-2021

Kitty Foyle (1940) Woof

It commences in the 1900s when women were granted equal rights. It jumps to 1940 to show us what that liberation brought. A portrait of a career gal working to ensure her own future whilst getting bumped by her big dude boss. Dennis Morgan's smile was a spit of sunshine in someone else's face. Love is the wrench that loosens the grip on feminism. Daddy Yum Yum deserved attention and Daddy "Not So Bad" (James Craig) played to our sensibilities. One owns money while the other earns it. "You know who" makes her feel things and "you know what" is a dork. The suds get out of hand but the bubbles are fun. If Ginger Rogers had smeared the paint and allowed the character to be sloppy, it would have freed the character further. The film made observant statements about women (you need to earn your own shit), men (women don't need them) and children (are a woman's future.) Independent woman's last choice exonerates her previous overestimations. 10-Apr-2021

Princess O'Rourke (1943) Howl

Princess that feels like a bird in a cage gets rescued by a pilot when she overdoses on sleeping pills during a flight. The save frees her unto the real world where she suffers from a lack of talent besides waving, dressing fancy and waiting for a royal stallion to impregnate her with boys. The legends are luminous trotting a sound comedy beat and unrolling an escapist romance. The story turns politically dark after the reveal as the man realizes that with a woman in power comes great servitude. 07-Mar-2021

Blood And Sand (1941)  Arf

A celebration of latino culture, the sport of bull fighting and the sacrifices for love. Tyrone Power is the bull fighting brat that thinks his past accomplishments and sexual prowess make up for his sins and lack of intelligence. His mother prays that he gets gourd by a bull so he doesn't die like his father. She also prays that his saintly new wife never gives birth to a son so she doesn't have to suffer the same damnation. Juan gets everything except the love of Jesus. Linda Darnell is a luminescent virgin whose no match for the Goddess of Hellfire. Rita was the woman whose perfection allowed her to steal anything in the proximity of her reach. When Rita lets her hair down and makes out with the husband in front of the wife we know this slut doesn't give a fuck. It's melodramatic like latin people, it's sumptuous like white people and it entertains like any good host. 11-Dec-2020

Valley Of Decision, The (1945) Howl

Impoverished daughter takes a job working for the owners of the steel mill that controls the town and whom father blames for his employment injury. Money is money, a job is an opportunity. Following Greer Garson bumbling and excelling at her job was cute, funny and "I'm proud of her." When the giant Peck acknowledges her, the passion begins and the charisma rockets. The closer the maid gets to her new family the farther away she gets from hers. I expected the romance to be histrionic but it was pensive and borrowed from real life. Unfortunately, love is constantly interrupted by employment strikes, demands, shutdowns and the threat of violence. Jessica Tandy was delicious as the runner-up who pecks at the competition 'til the bitter end. The surprises were eventful, the director kept pushing it and the conclusion is what it needed. 24-Oct-2020
