Weekend at The Waldorf – A Great Remake of a Classic

Weekend at The Waldorf – A Great Remake of a Classic

Weekend at The Waldorf (1945) is an ingenious remake of the award-winning genuine classic. It is lighthearted and intended to lift our spirits.

Grand Hotel is, as of now, the only film to receive an Oscar for Best Picture without being nominated for any other category! This…

Made For Each Other1939 Movie – Comedy, Drama, Romance

Made For Each Other1939 Movie – Comedy, Drama, Romance

There is a great deal of drama in Made For Each Other. There is a comedy in this 92-minute movie, however, Made For Each Other is not “a comedy.” The phrase “made for each,” other implies that the couple in this movie is so perfectly suited for each other that it’s no surprise when a couple is happily married. However, I’ll leave it up to the viewers to decide if the couple in this movie is truly made for each…

Come Live With Me – A Classic Movie Nobody knows

Come Live With Me – A Classic Movie Nobody knows

This film’s running time is one hour and 26 minutes. That is a little shorter than many really classic movies.  There is enough time to develop the plot without boring anyone. It is a romance/comedy that is not unbelievable. I’m going to do something a little differently from my other movie posts. Come Live With Me is a romantic comedy that is very entertaining and delightful to watch. As in my other posts, I will not reveal the content or…

Charade the Movie – Alfred Hitchcock Directing Style

Charade the Movie was made in 1963, It was adapted by Peter Stone from a short story, “The Unsuspecting Wife”. The short story was coauthored by Peter Stone and Marc Behm a couple of years before the movie was made. In retrospect, it is hard to…
