Breakdowns from 1936

Bullets or BallotsLots of stars featured in this blooper reel fro 1936 including Warren William, Humphrey Bogart, Kay Francis, Edward G. Robinson, Joe E. Brown, Ann Dvorak, Leslie Howard and James Cagney. A lot of the scenes include actors cursing "god damn it" whenever they get something wrong. I wonder what other curses were left out? I think it's interesting too that several scenes show that movie studios crashed cymbals to end the scene instead of just yelling "cut". I found Breakdowns of 1936 in the extras for the DVD of Bullets or Ballots (1936) and lucky for us it's also on YouTube. Enjoy!

  2. Sorry for the typpos. Singing into Google is sometimes a pain.

    Tueday Weld is a gifted actoress with a substantial history of excellent performances. If you have not seen her in "Play It as It Lays", you have a great experience waiting you if you can find the film somewhere.

  3. Hi Ted,

    I have a few posts on Tuesday Weld. This isn't one of them though. THanks for stopping by! I had a difficult time with Weld's films. Many I saw were very campy. I'll have to check out Play it as it Lays! Thank you so much for the recommendation.

    Have a happy New Year!

  4. You also may want to give Tuesday a try in the highly disturbing suspense drama PRETTY POISON (also starring a post-PSYCHO Tony Perkins) and the hard-hitting Michael Mann noir THIEF, from 1981.

    Nothing campy about these pictures.

    Love your blog, by the way.
