Cripes! I need to blog more in 2014.
I forgot how good The Awful Truth was. Irene Dunne was simply fantastic. I may use this as my screwball comedy this semester.
Saw two late Sam Fuller films this year, they were weak, but still remarkable for its willingness to tackle controversial topics. Shock Corridor – which dealt with mental illness (and mixed color and b/w photography) and The Naked Kiss – which dealt with rape and pedophilia. When I really think of which director really pushed the envelope in the tumultuous decline of Hollywood I can only think of one.
