SERIOUS film making from the 1930s


THIS is how to open a film.  Above is an original still photograph, collection Jim Linderman, showing the stunning opening of the film Crime Without Passion being produced.  Enjoy this clip...and marvel.

  2. Great find! The actress is either Dorothy Bradshaw, Fraye Gilbert, or Betty Sundmark (I wrote something briefly about this film last year at http://www.bookoftheerinyes.com/journal/2008/12/furies-from-the-1930s/ )

  3. It looks like an incredible film...I'd say filmmaking hasn't gone as far as the filmakers think. Of course, this one isn't in fake 3-D
