CAMILLE (dir: George Cukor, Not Rated) - Michelle says, "Obviously the most important thing about this movie is that Daddy Warbucks and his lovely assistant Grace take Annie to see it in the amazing Radio City Music Hall scene of John Huston’s 1982 adaptation of the musical adaptation of the popular comic strip (see my exuberant review of ANNIE under 1982 movies in STAFF PICKS BY YEAR). But it also get props for its late nineteenth century setting amongst the social elite and hangers on of gay Paris. As you watch, you feel as if you’re witnessing a particular culture as it really was, even if it’s cinematized for an audience. And it features Greta Garbo who creates the iconic image of a waifish, alluring invalid, spurned by her lover and left with a cold, insensitive baron as her best option for maintaining her social status amongst the fickle beautiful and wealthy of her world. But once she is destitute and alienated from that lifestyle, can Garbo find her way back to the man she really loves? Well, the film was made in 1936, so take a guess. And hey, it makes Daddy Warbucks cry in ANNIE, so if you’re anything like that old bald softie, I bet you’ll shed a few tears too."
MY MAN GODFREY (dir: Gregory La Cava, Not Rated) - Bart says, "Tired of those same old Katherine Hepburn/Cary Grant screwball comedies? How about giving Carole Lombard a shot? Possibly my favorite comedienne of the cinema, Lombard brings an over-the-top wackiness and sexiness to her roles, hinting at her off-screen reputation as a potty-mouthed trouble-maker. Put her in a film with classy William Powell as a rich man posing as a poor man pretending to be a butler and you've got the makings of one of the funniest films of the Thirties. I watch it a lot."
