Anthony Adverse was boring at best. Olivia de Havilland was beautiful; other than that, all I can say is, what a waste of Claude Rains.
Then there was a little 1929 musical called The Love Parade starring Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald; like most musicals, so contrived and silly, just an excuse for the stars to break into song. I had to turn it off.
As I’m writing this, I’m watching 1958s Separate Tables. I can’t quite make my mind up about this film. It feels a bit like a 50’s soap opera.
Deborah Kerr’s performance as a plain, emotionally unstable spinster was spectacular as was David Niven as the aging major she secretly loves. This movie won 2 Oscars one of which went to Mr. Niven for Best Actor.
