Vintage Trailer Time

I promised myself this after Nicola mentioned The Wicked Lady (1945) the other day.  The real Wicked Lady was actually from the same part of the world as I am, which makes it all the more interesting to me!

Do love the scary Margaret Lockwood, plus Patricia Roc and James Mason.  Does anyone else think that Michael Kitchen is a little like him?

While, we’re talking about wicked – what about The Man in Grey (1943)?  James Mason is absolutely terrifying in that film!  The end is really awful!  Again with Margaret Lockwood, Phyllis Calvert also love Stewart Granger – gorgeous voice.

No!!!  Argh!

Last but not least (for now anyway) in glorious technicolour, I could never resist a bit of swash and buckle…Scaramouche (1952) Stewart Granger and Eleanor Parker.

Ooooh, flame-haired wildcat indeed!  Truly the voiceover is dreadful.

Oh, go on then.  A favourite completely: The Scarlet Pimpernel (1934) Leslie Howard and Merle Oberon.

Repeat after me with your best RP, Vintage films are the best!

  1. A remake of The Wicked Lady???

    Seeing Stewart Granger in a clinch reminded me of the 1955 film version of Moonfleet, one of my favourite books. I found the film mystifying but strangely compelling!

    Thanks for mentioning my blog!

  2. Here’s a question I have often wondered about: why is the alphabet in the order that it is? Who decided? Was it because of that song?

    Someone is missing you again.
