This Week on Noir and Chick Flicks:
I'm really looking forward to TCM April' s Star of the month, because have not seen many of Robert Taylor (pictured above) films. This is going to be a new adventure for me. Tuesday, is also Walter Huston's Birthday. TCM, is going to Spotlight him all day April 6th. If you are interested, please check local listings for featured movies and times.
This Weeks Chick Flicks at the Movies Spotlight is: The Great American West of John Ford. It is a look back at the career of six-time Academy Award winning director John Ford (1894–1973) as told by John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, and Henry Fonda both. Filmed in Monument Valley and the location of the former back lot of Twentieth Century Fox, as well as in the den of Ford, the story goes back to Ford's start in the silent era up through the early 1960's. I thought this John Ford documentary was VERY interesting.
