Public Wedding {1937}

Great film! Jane Wyman looks glorious and, of course, I needn't elaborate on my feelings regarding Mr. Hopper's appearance here! But I will. He's 21 (possibly 22, depending on when it was filmed), lanky and deadly charming. Public Wedding is a fast-paced romantic comedy in which a group of down and out carnies involve a fine (though broke) artist in their latest scheme—with hilarious results. It's only fifty-eight minutes long, far too short in my opinion, and there wasn't quite enough "suck face" in it, sniff. Still excellent, though. Catch it next chance you get.

Screen photos replaced with DVD captures (except No. 7, as, mysteriously, I couldn't find that exact spot in the film!) 06 September 2005. More to come.
