Johnny Apollo
(1940)

Vintage gangster movie
I will admit to being a huge fan of Tyrone Power. I actually liked this film as an old time gangster movie with all the elements, great B&W filmography, snappy banter between main characters, gangster moll falls for handsome guy and fun dance tunes. It hit all the marks and yes, I thought Tyrone was really good in this part not wooden at all. It's a vintage movie and should be taken that way after all

Love Is News
(1937)

Love is Adorable
This is an old movie that stats two of the most beautiful people in it that ever lived. It's such a fun story with snappy banter that makes it a good story. No wonder fans flocked to see it. I recommend this to all fans of Tyrone Power and Loretta Young. They seemed to enjoy each other's company and it shows on screen. Off screen, they remained friends for life

The Sun Also Rises
(1957)

Wonderful movie
I saw this years ago as a child and recently, revisited it again. Frankly, I was surprised at how it captured the feel of the Hemingway book. I know Tyrone power was too old for the part but he was Jake despite that. There was a sad sense of a life lost and a wish to be young again, full of his manhood. It's quite wonderful and empathetic.
