Chasing Vintage Movie Moguls through Hollywood

Philip Mershon knows where the Bodies Are Buried. He’s a man with a seemingly endless supply of stories about early Hollywood moguls, such as the prickly Harry Cohn of Columbia Pictures, or the infighting at Warner Bros. about merging film and sound in the 1920s. Philip’s descriptions are so vivid, you feel you’ve met these… Continue reading Chasing Vintage Movie Moguls through Hollywood

The Great Villain Blogathon – Day 4 Recap

Cinematic villains come from all socioeconomic groups, but they usually have two things in common: (1) they’re powerful and (2) they’re rich. And if they’re not either, they’re working hard to be both. Today’s villains provide a good cross-section of these motivations in action. Bloggers: If you’ve uploaded your entry, but it’s not included in… Continue reading The Great Villain Blogathon – Day 4 Recap
