In this post: Lunt and Fontanne.
I want to write another Howdygram post but I can’t think of a subject right now, even a stupid one. Believe me, I’ve tried. For the last three hours, off and on, I’ve been browsing news and gossip websites, my favorite progressive blogs — Right Wing Watch, The Raw Story, Talking Points Memo, The Democratic Underground — and can’t come up with ANYTHING. So I’ll just ramble for a while until you get sick of me. (In other words, business as usual.)
Mind if I take a couple of minutes to recommend an amazing movie? It’s a comedy/farce called The Guardsman (1932) starring Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, the only movie this married team of theatrical legends ever made, and it’s REALLY BRILLIANT.
Also in the cast are Roland Young as the best friend and ZaSu Pitts as the maid, because no authentic early-1930s comedy was ever complete without them.
