"TITANIC" (1953) Review

As many moviegoers know, there have been numerous film and ویژن ٹیلی productions about the maiden voyage and sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic on April 15, 1912. The most famous production happens to be James Cameron's 1997 Oscar winning opus. However, I do wonder if there are any شائقین who are aware that another Titanic movie managed to strike Oscar gold.

Directed سے طرف کی Jean Negulesco, the 1953 movie "TITANIC" focused on the personal lives of a wealthy American family torn asunder سے طرف کی marital strife, a deep secret and the historic sinking of the Titanic. Family matriarch Mrs. Julia Sturges and her two children, 17 year-old Annette and 10 year-old Norman board the R.M.S. Titanic in Cherbourg, France. Julia hopes to remove her children from the influence of a privileged European lifestyle embraced سے طرف کی her husband Richard and raise them in her hometown of Mackinac, Michigan. Unfortunately, Richard gets wind of their departure and manages to board the Titanic at the last moment سے طرف کی purchasing a steerage ticket from a Basque immigrant and intercept his family. The Sturges family also meet other passengers aboard ship:

"CALIFORNIA" (1947) Review

I am a history nut. And one of my پسندیدہ historical periods that I love to study is the Antebellum Era of the United States. One of my پسندیدہ topics from this period is the California سونا Rush. I also love movies. But despite this love, I have been constantly disappointed سے طرف کی Hollywood's inability to create a first-rate movie about سونا Rush.

I may have to take back my تبصرہ about Hollywood's inability to produce a first-rate movie یا ویژن ٹیلی production about the سونا Rush. There were at least three that managed to impress me. Unfortunately, the latest film about the سونا Rush that I saw was Paramount Pictures' 1947 film, "CALIFORNIA". And it did not impress me.

Directed سے طرف کی John Farrow, "CALIFORNIA" told the story of how California became this country's 31st state. The story, written سے طرف کی Frank Butler and Theodore Strauss, is told from the viewpoints of a handful of characters - a female gambler/singer named Lily Bishop, a former U.S. Army officer-turned-wagon train guide named Jonathan Trumbo, a former slave ship captain and profiteer named Captain Pharaoh Coffin, and a Irish-born farmer named...

January 20th, 2014 marks 24 years since Barbara passed away. Barbara, we - the fans, miss you. I'm marking the occasion with a link to a great new biography written about Barbara, a 1000 page plus beautiful, descriptive hard cover book called Barbara Stanwyck - Steel True - Volume One written سے طرف کی Victoria Wilson. The thick volume, covering years from 1907 - 1940 has black & white تصاویر throughout. I love this book! An excellent reference regarding all فلمیں Barbara made as well as plays, radio shows and much more. We love you, Barbara.

Barbara Stanwyck was born on July 16th. She lives on...in the فلمیں and in our hearts. I'm happy to see her شائقین are growing in numbers on this website!

Barbara had an amazing imagination...she was able to visualize goals, scenes in life and place herself in those life scenes. Of course she was beautiful as well...and good to people. There are many other awesome qualities she had...and all these attributes came together in one person to create a legend.

Barbara, Ruby ( her دیا name) continues to inspire me and I am learning مزید & مزید how to use my imagination to create a fulfilling reality. TCM celebrates July 16th...Happy Birthday, Barbara!

How do I love thee, Barbara? Let me count the ways.

Barbara Stanwyck is a legend. مزید than that she personifies what is womanly, mysterious, glorious, imaginative, beautiful, strong, enduring, endearing, powerful, magical, fun, optimistic in life and in theatre. Not one to display theatrics یا uncontrolled emotions when accepting awards on stage in front of an audience, Barbara Stanwyck is a fine inspiration and role model for women.

I think women accepting Academy Awards, Golden Globes, یا other 'gongs' today should look at a video of Barbara before they go to any award ceremony. These women would know how to act after seeing Barbara handle these emotional moments onstage.

Ms Stanwyck's longevity in the movie industry speaks volumes. Thank God the شائقین have these فلمیں because she chose not to write one of those scandalous expose type novels about showbiz people she knew. Her classiness and strong ethics shine through 6 decades of motion pictures instead of on the pages of a bestseller, which her book certainly would have been.
