TWO MEN AND BETTE DAVIS

On Tuesday July 10 Turner Classic Movies continues its celebration of the film career of Leslie Howard who, in a single decade, made as many successful films — and gave as many outstanding performances — as many actors do only in long lifetimes.

My pick on the 10th is It’s Love I’m After, a comedy with a theatrical setting .  He and Bette Davis make a refreshing romantic team.  But if you’re ready for more of the strong offbeat team of Howard and Bogart, you will not want to miss The Petrified Forest from Robert E. Sherwood’s play.  Howard and Bogart repeat their stage roles. Bette Davis plays Gabrielle.

Readers might be interested in my April 25 blog which discusses the career and standing of Howard and his place in the mythology of Gone with the Wind.

NEXT POST July 13.

See you at the movies,
Rick
