I Am A Swede

The Classic Film Thread

Recommended Posts

Just watched Mary Stevens MD from 1933 and starring Kay Francis, who was Warner Brothers biggest female star until Bette Davis usurped her.

Very enjoyable.A lot packed into 75 minutes.

Today marks the 100th birthday of Olivia de Havilland. One of the last from Hollywood's golden age. I think we all wish her a happy birthday.  :wub:

Olivia broke the back of the studio system (it likely would have happened anyway, but she was the one who did it). It's fitting that so many are gone but she's still here.

French New Wave icon Anna Karina has sadly passed at 79.

 

Speaking of iconic, I’ve seen quite a few people posting this scene in tribute to Anna. It’s just so much fun:

 


With Agnès Varda, Jeanne Moreau, and Anna now gone, we’re losing so much of that great (the greatest?) era of cinema.
