Movie night: ‘Love Affair’

24 Jan

1939: You probably know this better as “An Affair to Remember.” It’s almost exactly the same, except this one’s in black and white, and “Sleepless in Seattle” included clips of “An Affair to Remember,” which prompted a lot of interest in that one in the ’90s. (Also, the children’s choir is less annoying.)

Movie night: ‘Penny Serenade’

24 Jan

Movie night! This one’s from 1941: Cary Grant and a cautionary tale about print media. The ending felt a little too much.

Movie night: ‘Dark Passage’

24 Jan

From 1947: Bogart, Bacall and a prison break. (Plus lots of stairs.) You get to see the San Francisco trolley turn around!
