Yeah, with all due respect to Cukor and Lubitsch and the greatest double-take ever, Duck Soup is better than all the other ones combined.

Yeah, this is, for me at least, the easiest category of 1932-33 ...

Slow down! If I were going any slower, I'd be going backwards!

Actually, after I finish off 1933, I am going backwards for the rest of the year -- twenty-one posts covering movie history from 1888 to 1933. Then for New Years day, we'll start in on 1934 and The Golden Age ...

mister muleboy said...

I am rethinking my position.

Take a look at that Jean Harlow, will you. . . .

I'll take Miriam Hopkins over Jean Harlow any day.

mister muleboy said...

Well, Beck m'boy, we'll never have to fight over our ladies' attentions.


Of course, we will: my wandering eye will lead me to Miriam as sure as you're born.

And her dead and all -- shameful!

Mythical Monkey said...

Harlow, Hopkins -- what about Margaret Dumont?

Mrs. Teasdale: Oh, your Excellency!

Rufus T. Firefly: You're not so bad yourself.

mister muleboy said...

Was Mrs. Teasdale born in Wisconsin and educated in Minnesota?

just asking. . . .

Was Mrs. Teasdale born in Wisconsin and educated in Minnesota?

"Not that I care, but where is your husband?"

"Why, he's dead."

"I bet he's just using that as an excuse."

"I was with him to the very end."

"No wonder he passed away."

"I held him in my arms and kissed him."

"Oh, I see, then it was murder! Will you marry me? Did he leave you any money? Answer the second question first."

I have difficulty understanding all this fuss about whether Harlow, Hopkins or Dumont when Aline MacMahon is in the mix (and in the bathtub if I recall correctly). Best, Gerald,
