Hollywood Women

The last of the pictures I’ll be sharing, at least for a while.  Have to write up my films posts for the next installment.

I do have a particular affection for Bebe Daniels, who made – unusually – a great transition from a child star.  However, I love Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable in one of my favourite films, It Happened One Night (1934).  You can also see the trailer below.

Did I mention I used to watch Harold Lloyd films with my Dad when I was a child too?  I loved him much more than Charlie Chaplin.

You can find lots of classic film clips on the ‘net, and better yet on DVD, if you haven’t – give them a whirl.  You won’t regret it.

  1. I like to watch Harold Lloyd too. I read somewhere that he was really an accomplished acrobat, or gymnast, and that he did all of his own stunts. Buster Keaton did most of his too. It was dangerous back then for actors.

  2. I too enjoy that particular old move with Clark Gable. Were they married at the time?
    I’m not sure I know who Harold Lloyd is, though am bad with names so would perhaps recognize him in a movie and just not know the name.

    Please stop in for a visit, the welcome mats always out.

  3. It Happened One Night is a Great Film. Apparently it destroyed the popularity of the vest, after Clark doesn’t wear one when he strips off!

  4. Yes Harold Lloyd was great, the clock stunt always sticks in my mind.

    I’m pretty sure they were never married Sandy, but you’d remember Harold Lloyd. Here’s an excellent website about him: http://www.haroldlloyd.com/ Oh, and I’ll visit often, thanks!

    I love that film. I didn’t know that about vests!
