For the Love of Film...

Welcome to my review website. I love movies, and here’s the place I talk about them. You’ll find my ratings, on a scale of zero to five stars, in all of my posts. For each film, I’ve written either a full critique, which is a longer piece; a compact review, which is usually just a paragraph; or a quick take, which is only a sentence or two. I also post articles about the world of cinema on my film blog.

In the Comments section on each page, feel free to share your own thoughts and feelings about the films discussed here.

Lights! Camera! Action!

The Last of Mrs. Cheyney

The Last of Mrs. Cheyney

Though The Last of Mrs. Cheyney’s sensibilities are a bit dated now, this second film made from the Frederick Lonsdale play holds up enough, mainly because of the performances by Joan Crawford, William Powell, and Frank Morgan. Not a must-see, but amusing and occasionally surprising.
