    Tonight I streamed The Solid Gold Cadillac from Prime. It's the old open matte transfer, filled with dust specks and some damage, but the movie is so entertaining that I just enjoyed the "ride."

    I've selected London Has Fallen from the To-Watch shelf for today's amusement. I'm expecting a fun popcorn adventure tale and nothing more.

    Last night I watched the Warner Archive DVD-R of The Man I Love. This is one of their weakest discs with dark, murky images and indistinct sound.

    The film is good, one of the few melodramas which concentrate on the melody as much as the drama. (Others of course are Humoresque and Rhapsody) I enjoy the film very much because I love melodrama but also because The Man I Love features three actresses I like a lot but who were given few opportunities to shine: Dolores Moran, Martha Vickers and Andrea King. Robert Alda, looking like Cary Grant through a distorting mirror, makes a splendidly repellent lecher.

    Warners should examine the OCN to learn what might be obtained with tender loving care. The Man I Love deserves better than a poor MOD Disc

    Streamed Bumblebee Saturday night. I was very pleasantly surprised by this one. The previous Transformer movies for me were just a giant hodge podge of noise and CGI overload. This version actually had an entertaining story with actual humans and CG stuff, while there, wasn't non-stop.

    My only beef: PLEASE Hollywood, STOP giving John Cena jobs, he is a HORRIBLE actor, like embarrassingly horrible.

    Having recently watched two melodramas with a musical background, I just had to have another look at Humoresque last night. In this film, the music is far better than the drama!

    El Paso arrived this morning, so I'll watch that tonight. I don't recall ever seeing this film before, so I'm looking forward to this.

    Yeah, but I liked the drama as Crawford and Garfield were really good in that film.

    Also, I'm watching my BD of El Paso today too as I endure another winter snow storm.

    I went to the TCM app today and streamed The Perils of Pauline, the 1947 musical with Betty Hutton. TCM used a public domain transfer obviously since it was somewhat soft and the color was kind of brackish. Betty Hutton is exhausting in her first two musical numbers; you think she's about the tear down all the scenery and eat the cameraman, but she's lovely in the movie's Oscar nominated "I Wish I Didn't Love You So." Nice to see some of the greats of the silent screen in small cameos abetted by Paramount's ace character actors (William Demerest, Billy DeWolfe).

    Not in my book, but, he's a personal favorite of mine, right behind the Duke along side some others like Mitchum, Lancaster, Bogart and Cagney. My father loved John Garfield and he passed it on to me.

    My wife fell in love with John Garfield as a child while watching Four Daughters, and he is still my main rival!

    I'm doing the same thing with The Time Tunnel. I'm only watching a couple each month to make the set last longer.
