  1. I’ve been enjoying these! Are you planning to write about the Jean Harlow biopic? It was so bad. It had almost nothing to do with her life.

    • Thanks, it’s been difficult finding them (and I still have to pay to get a few more) but it’s been worth it to discover how Old Hollywood has been “perceived” by other directors and writers. I have both the Carol Lynley and Carrol Baker versions of the Harlow story! Might have to do one of them next week before hiatus.

  3. I hate it when biopics seriously change fundemental facts about the stars’ backgrounds, like Audrey’s status as an only child. It wasn’t so bad in for Katharine Hepburn in THE AVIATOR (2004), but there were still some problems. These were real people, people! And there are people out there who know a lot about these people, so you can’t screw with these people!

    • Haha, I wonder how many more times you could have thrown “people” in there! Yeah I’m contemplating doing The Aviator if enough people want to see “good” biopics. I remember being on the fence about Blanchett as Hepburn, mostly because I’d seen so fear of Hepburn’s films at that point. Be nice to see it again knowing what I know.
