Barbara Stanwyck | Underrated Performances Part II


nitratediva:

Ninety years ago on this date, April 17, 1924, three companies merged to form Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, better known as M-G-M, which would become the largest, wealthiest, and most prolific studio of Hollywood’s Golden Age. As founder Louis B. Mayer said, “I want to make beautiful pictures about beautiful people.”

Many of the most important and beloved American movies, including The Big Parade, Grand Hotel, The Wizard of Oz, and Singin’ in the Rain, to name just a few, were made at M-G-M. It has been estimated that about one fifth of movies ever made in the United States were partially shot at the studio. This footage comes from a behind-the-scenes tour short, made in 1925, soon after the establishment of M-G-M.

Happy Birthday Hayley Catherine Rose Vivien Mills!

(April 18, 1946 ~ )


Happy Birthday Elizabeth Montgomery!

"She never thought she was funny, and everything came out of honesty."  Sandra Gould

"I never thought of the Tramp in terms of appeal. He was myself, a comic spirit, something within me that said I must express this. I felt so free. The adventure of it. The madness. I can do any mad, crazy thing I like. And then?—did it come off, this insane idea I had, did it come off? That was the thrill."

Charles Chaplin
April 16, 1889 — December 25, 1977

Happy Birthday Charlie

Thank you for bringing so much laughter and inspiration to the world, even 100 years after your debut in films you have that same ability. 

That’s why I consider him “for the ages”


“She was the first person I ever interviewed for anything. It was for a magazine. She had just done a movie called Inside Daisy Clover and she had a big movie out at that point called The Great Race. They were high-profile movies.
“And she invited me to her house. Now, I was writing for a very inconsequential magazine, so I was very flattered that I could go to her house, and it was just Natalie and I, and she was a big big star. 
“And I sat down…and I didn’t know where to start. 
“I had questions, but they jumped all over the place…and I couldn’t find my notes and I didn’t know what I was doing.
“And she said, ‘Let me help you…’ and we sat down on the floor and she took my notes, and she said, ‘okay, you should really start with this one, and then go to this, and then maybe do this and this, and lead to this.’ 
“And she was so kind and courteous and everything like that. And I thought, “she should’ve thrown me out of the house saying, ‘you’re not competent to do this! I’m a busy person! You’re wasting my time!’ And she should have! But she was so kind and so encouraging, and was so sweet to me. And because Bob Wagner had been a friend of mine for a long time, so I kind of saw her several times after that, and she was always so sweet to me. And I thought she did me such a great favour by teaching me something and being kind to me.”
