:D :shock: :D

Now we're talking!

What I want from WA these days is a line-up of classic MGM/RKO/WB stars - and we are sure getting them in March!

Greta Garbo! Joan Crawford! Susan Hayward! Marilyn Monroe! Edward G Robinson! Esther Williams! And some guy named Olivier!

WHAT A MONTH! Not sure if all the films are winners, but I like the line-up!

Well, one out of three ain’t *too* bad! Guess I’ll change that to Jupiter's Darling now! ;)

I guess Camille and Nazi Spy tempt, but a word of warning on Prince And The Showgirl: despite who’s in it and what it looks and sounds like, with its fairytale title and premise, it is honestly a crushing bore. I saw it again when (the much better, charming) My Week With Marilyn came out, and every time I try and revisit it and hope it’s going to be wittier, fresher and funner than I remember, I am reminded why practically everyone associated with it ultimately hated it! You have been warned…! :)

CDD will likely happen. Not so sure about T&J Vol. 2. :(

I was pretty thrilled to see Neptune's Daughter make the cut, and would gladly scoop up Jupiter's Darling next. 3 or 4 Esther films in my collection would do me, though I'd welcome more, too.

Other than Esther... I need to read up on the films more, but I was pretty happy to see so many old star names pop up. Yeah, I'm familiar with the Prince and The Showgirl rep, but dang it's still tempting.

I'm not fond of Prince and The Showgirl either. It is a bore, except for Sybil Thorndike who pretty much steals the scenes! The film goes in circles and the conclusion is rather abrupt.

Tim Milland has confirmed it will also include the 1921 silent version. Does that sway you any? ;)

Long, Long Trailer review. Beaut! That's essentially how I describe the film, a longer episode of "I Love Lucy" just without the Mertzes.
