So as I promised (more or less), I'm back with another review of an Irene Dunne film, none other than The Awful Truth, one of her best known movies and her first collaboration with Cary Grant, with whom she went on to make two more films (My Favorite Wife and Penny Serenade).

Theodora Goes Wild (1936)

There is this slightly wacky and sweet 1936 movie named Theodora Goes Wild, directed by Richard Boleslawsky and with Irene Dunne in the title role.

Movie Review: Design for Living (1933)

So apparently, I haven't done a decent movie review since May, even though I have rambled about my love for certain films' aesthetics quite regularly.

Celebrating Rita Hayworth: Cover Girl (1944)

Today (or yesterday, depending on what your timezone tells you) on October 17th, we celebrate 101 year from birth of one of the Old Hollywood screen goddesses, the unforgettable Rita Hayworth. And it's worth mentioning that October the 17th also marks the would-be birthday of Montgomery Clift, another one of my Old Hollywood favorites, but… Continue reading Celebrating Rita Hayworth: Cover Girl (1944)
