Ding-Ding! Movie review time- Sin Takes a Holiday (1930)

This cleaver movie was quickly on its way on being on my top ten list until the ending!  I won’t kill the movie for you, it is still a must see, but there are always movies that end in a way where your jaw tends to lower and possibly some drool leaking out because you can’t believe that’s how they ended it.

Dowdy Sylvia accepts her boss’ marriage proposal, even though he only asked her to avoid marriage to another woman. As a newly found  wealthy wife, Sylvia changes from ugly duckling to uninhibited swan and even contemplates having an affair with a man she meets during an all expense paid  trip to Paris.


Classic Movie review- Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Classic Movie review- Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

I was excited to watch for the first time the original Bride of Frankenstein last night during my usual battle of insomnia.  This movie was great, full of humor and depth as I enjoyed the deeper moral value of accepting someone regardless of physical or mental disability.  When Frankenstein made friends with the man in the forest, it warmed my heart, and then broke it when he was discovered for forced to continue his search to fit in and live in peace.  Then, just what every man needs(chuckle), the insane doctor makes him a mate! Elsa Lanchester is excellent and beautiful and loved her for this part!  This is on my list of favorite Cult Classics!
