Never thought you'd see Ida Lupino dancing around in a nightie, did you?
I watched several lesser-known films this month, and was pleasantly surprised by some of them. I recorded several Melvyn Douglas films that were shown on TCM on his birthday (still haven't watched And So They Were Married which I am very excited to see. Sometimes I save those for a while). Two of the films I recorded had a different title in the credits than what was listed on the guide (why do they do that?). I only had a few re-watches this month, mostly more recent films (ones with an *).

Least Favorite: The Venetian Affair was pretty boring, especially at the beginning, but I finished it for Ed Asner. Christopher Strong was predictable and Juarez was long but I had to watch for John Garfield (hardly in it) and Bette Davis. I also found Easy to Wed tough to get through. Nobody can replace William Powell, Myrna Loy, and Jean Harlow!!
