If you read my previous post, you know I spent today in Vernon, TX, which is best known as the birthplace of Roy Orbison (1936-1988), but it also has a neat old Hollywood connection that I didn’t know until today. About 60 years ago, my mom went to visit Vernon with her Dad and Granddad. They had lived there from roughly 1908 until around 1930, so they wanted to visit and show it to my Mom. On that trip 60 years ago, Mom recalled they stopped at a big service station where a man named Robert More (1907-1972) had pulled up in a big Cadillac and recognized her Dad. Mom told me her Dad told her Mr. More had married a “movie star” but she didn’t know who. Well, I went to researching and, lo and behold, I found the answer. This is actress Ann Christy (1905-1987). She was born in Indiana but moved to California at some point and, while she wasn’t exactly a “star”, she had a brief career in the movies, making her debut in 1927. Her biggest hit was a Harold Lloyd comedy called “Speedy” (1928). Anyone seen it? I haven’t but it is out there, so I want to now! I don’t know the details, but she left the movies as her career was fading in 1932. At some point she met my Granddaddy’s old friend Robert More and the two married, had a son, and lived their life out in Vernon, TX. My mom recounted the story to Charlie, the headstone maker (see previous post), and he said “Oh, yes, Ann More! I facilitated the making of her headstone...” and he took me to it across the cemetery (this is a large cemetery). He even got out his knife and dug around the grave to show me the details on the back (it’s really small, but that’s what i was trying to show in picture 2), and then her bronzed signature on her headstone. I definitely didn’t expect a silent film actress to be buried in Vernon, but it made today even more special than it already was!!! (We also found the old service station it turns out Mr. More owned...it’s long closed down, but you can tell it was a fancy place in its day!). #annchristy #vernon #vernontx #vernontexas #personalpost #silentfilm #classicfilm #classicactress #vintageactress #silentactress #silentfilmactress #classicbeauty #vintagebeauty #oldhollywoodbeauty

Continuing on with my monthly exploration of classic cinema, I chose 1959's HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL as my movie for May. 
It's interesting to talk about this movie in 2018 because, while it most certainly was revolutionary and refreshing in its time, the themes and skeleton of HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL have become mainstays of horror cinema as a whole. Placing myself in that time period, though, it's clear how well the movie blends horror and mystery with the tools at its disposal. Vincent Price is as extraordinary as ever as Frederick Loren, and his performance is what holds the entire movie together. Carolyn Craig holds her own, though, and her turn as Nora gives a good surrogate to the audience trying to experience the events from the point-of-view of a relatable character.

As with plenty of horror and pulpy movies of the era, the music in HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL is so perfectly suited to the story and the presentation. So much of this movie is simultaneously a product of its time and a benchmark in modern horror that it establishes the film as a turning point of sorts between the classic and the present.

One of the most meaningful beautiful powerful novels and finest films by the best director John Ford - my favorite all time writer John Steinbeck’s The Grapes Of  Wrath”  as a young person I fell in love with this story as my grandparents story similar, as they migrated north to Michigan from the south to tend to their small fruit orchard.  Their stories during the depression involving farming were special to me.  The beauty of this film including  lessons on the human condition of suffering, struggle, Love, loss, humility, perseverance, stewardship and ties to the earth.  No story does it better.

#thevintagefashionchallenge Day 21: Missing Pieces
It may seem a bit silly, but I’ve always pined after Karen Allen’s tan skirt suit and hat from the final scene of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” It’s sleek, feminine, and classic. I’ve yet to find anything close (that actually fits!) Sigh. Someday. Perfection is worth the wait. “Marian’s costumes are styled to be authentically 1930s (thanks to costume designer Deborah Nadoolman who also did The Blues Brothers and An American Werewolf in London, among many others), but allow enough movement that she can take her part in the action.“

Side note: How stunning is San Francisco’s City Hall, the final setting for the film?! 😍

Dear Heart, 1964.
This starred Glenn Gord, Geraldine Paige, and Angela Lansbury.
Geraldine Paige played Evie Jackson, a woman arriving in New York for a ‘Postmasters’ convention. She is staying in at the hotel where the convention is taking place. Evie is very friendly to everyone she meets, but she’s personally single and lonely.
In past conventions, she’s taken up with married men, but now she’s at a point where she doesn’t want “just nice” (taking up with married men isn’t lasting), she wants something more.
Harry Mork (Glenn Ford), is a traveling salesman, and he’s intending to marry a woman, Phyllis (Angela Lansbury). But Harry is a womanizer, and even engaged doesn’t stop him. Naughty Harry....
Harry is staying at the same hotel Evie is, since he’s looking for a new apartment for his soon-to-be married life.
Evie and Harry eventually meet, when Harry ends up sitting with Evie at a diner. Evie is very friendly with Harry and wants to get to know him. Harry is more interested in the date he made with a receptionist from the hotel.
Evie is disappointed when Harry abruptly leaves for his date (he tells her he doesn’t feel well), but it doesn’t faze her too much.
Fate may have a hand, because Harry and Evie meet again, when Harry helps Evie with unwanted attention from a male stranger. So they decide to meet again the next day and see the touristy sights.
However Phyllis has a son, Patrick (Michael Anderson Jr.), and he unexpectedly arrives to see his future Dad.  Harry feels obligated to spend time with him, so he has to cancel on Evie.
Evie is disappointed (again), when Harry doesn’t show up. Although Harry left a message for her. She just doesn’t receive it in time. So she has to contend with spending time with some other Postmasters, of the older set. And maybe she gets a glimpse of what she can look like soon-older, unmarried, etc. 
However Evie is greatly surprised and glad to see Harry later the same day! Harry tells her about his son and how he had to cancel their date earlier, but he still wants to spend time with Evie. He asks her to dinner and to see his new apartment he got. Evie says yes.
So they have dinner, and then they go up to see Harry’s.....

You know your girl knew this movie fact 🦈🦈. Love it. @Regrann from @thedailyjaws - Robert Shaw ad-libbed the "Here lies the body of Mary Lee" line after director Steven Spielberg prompted him to give Brody's wife (on the dock) a hard time. Asked later where he quoted it from, as it would require getting a license and release from the author to be used in the film, Shaw said that was unlikely, as it was off an old grave marker in Ireland 😂

Betty Grable was arguably the most popular star of 20th Century Fox during the 1940s and 50s.  She starred in a string of musical and romantic comedy hits and was also famous for her pin-up photos.  Grable first attempted a film career in 1929 at the age of 12 and over the next several years appeared in a number of B-movies for RKO and Paramount.  While she received positive reviews for her 1936 film, Pigskin Parade, she was overshadowed by Judy Garland.  She then moved to Broadway where she appeared in the musical Du Barry Was a Lady.  Her big break in films came in 1939 when she signed with 20th Century Fox and appeared in the 1940 film, Down Argentine Way.  Her career took off and she appeared in a slew of other hits that include Springtime in the Rockies, Coney Island, The Dolly Sisters, When My Baby Smiles at Me and How to Marry a Millionaire.  Betty Grable more than showed that she wasn’t just another pretty face, she had a lot of talent which showed in all of her films. #bettygrable #rko #paramount #20thcenturyfox #pinup #broadway #pigskinparade #dubarrywasalady #downargentineway #springtimeintherockies #coneyisland #thedollysisters #whenmybabysmilesatme #howtomarryamillionaire #beauty #classiccinema #classichollywood #classicfilm #tcm #goldenage #goldenagecinema #goldenageofhollywood #goldenagefilm

Dragon Inn by King Hu gets the Criterion treatment with a brilliant digital 4k restoration
——————————————
The art of martial-arts filmmaking took a leap into bold new territory with this action-packed tale of Ming-dynasty intrigue. After having the emperor’s minister of defense executed, a power-grabbing eunuch sends assassins to trail the victim’s children to a remote point on the northern Chinese border. But that bloodthirsty mission is confounded by a mysterious group of fighters who arrive on the scene, intent on delivering justice and defending the innocent. The first film King Hu made after moving to Taiwan from Hong Kong in search of more creative freedom, Dragon Inn (Long men kezhan) combines rhythmic editing, meticulous choreography, and gorgeous widescreen compositions with a refinement that was new to the wuxia genre. Its blockbuster success breathed new life into a classic formula and established Hu as one of Chinese cinema’s most audacious innovators.

Last night I watched The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and in a few scenes some of the women had a very interesting hair style covering their ears. The hair almost forming a perfect helmet. I didn’t quite capture it here but I tried. I also liked this drawing more before I laid in the pen.

My grandfather was an actor during the transitional time between stage and silent screen to “talkies” starting in the late 1920’s. Here he plays a cop in “Broadway” (opposite the film noir beauty Evelyn Brent), a 1929 film adapted from the hit stage play of the same name, also starring some of the same actors including my Grandfather, Thomas E. Jackson. He was known for his pitched voice and created a sort of character acting style of his own. The set design then was so distinct and the 20’s style of this genre is just so ⚡️👌💎✨ #thomasejackson #classicfilm #filmnoir

The Lucy Show episode “Lucy Goes to London” was an adaptation of a 1962 sketch that Lucille Ball and Gale Gordon did on Desilu’s Victor Borge Theatre. Lucy and Gale were great friends who worked together from Lucy’s My Favorite Husband days in the 1940s all the way to Lucy’s final sitcom, Life With Lucy, in the 1980s. #lucilleball #galegordon #friendship #lucy #ilovelucy #desilu #redhead #comedy #comedian #vintage #vintagefashion #thelucyshow #hollywood #oldhollywood #hollywoodhistory #classichollywood #moviestar #tv #tvhistory #classictv #film #cinema #filmhistory #classicfilm #cinemahistory #classiccinema #oldmovies #1950s #1960s #lovinandlivinlifetothefullest

#AsLongAsImFamous was shot in #Technicolor but #lighting by #cinematographer @whoisbrown and #gaffer was for #Classicfilm #blackandwhite -- so #director @byBruceReisman could pay #homage to all #movie #genres, making #creative decisions in #postproduction. The #screenplay is both #surreal and #true, moving back and forth in #alternative #movie #universe. #Factbased, circa 1948 #Broadway #GoldenAge-- but filled with #illusions #romance #sexy #truelove and #fantasy.  Beautiful #cast of course, went along for the ride. #BroadwoodPlayers @therealdavidchokachi @aaronfors @gavadams @_camillemontgomery @luteseric. @Chelsea_jordann @amandagracejenkins  @victoriarowe_makeup.  More #teasers, but no #spoilers.
