Blast From The Past
Another fun package from Hollywood's home movie champ. Catch many of your favorite classic screen stars as they were years ago. In fact, this installment of his home movie series spans the 20's and Rudolf Valentino to the 60's and Jayne Mansfield. There's a lot of mugging and clowning, but not as much spontaneity as in Hollywood Without Makeup, (1963). In fact, Ken didn't shoot all the scenes, as he acknowledges. But so what, the shots of the fabled Valentino are priceless. And catch those crowded Hollywood street scenes from 1927, flivvers and flappers flavoring the sights. Among my favorites making brief appearance-- an early Gable, Tyrone Power on a marine drill field, Harlow sans bra, and Sally Blane mugging the camera after kissing John Barrymore. But the funniest, in my book, is Murray's 7-year old son enduring a cuddly love song from a pretty little girl. His expressions are priceless, and about what you'd expect from a typical boy that age. Incidentally, the little girl has a fine un-dubbed voice. Anyway, enjoy this blast from the past and its behind-the- scene glimpses. Clearly, the talent didn't need rehearsal in order to shine.
