The Monkey will be busy with family matters for the rest of the week. Rather than rush the essay on the best actress of 1932-33 (comedy/musical), I'm declaring a brief hiatus from blogging. But fret not. I should be back with another indigestible three thousand word nugget on Monday.
In the meantime, I leave you with the last big screen appearance of the great Douglas Fairbanks, the 1934 comedy The Private Life Of Don Juan. Directed by Alexander Korda and co-starring Merle Oberon, it's the story of an aging legend not quite sure how to fill the hours now that he's retired.
