Supergirl might not be some misunderstood movies of the 1980s and indeed it is at times pretty awful, particularly in terms of the cheap production design, bad dialogue and nonsensical moments, and yet the movie has its charms, most notably Helen Slater.
The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean is a solid western which is saying something coming from someone who generally isn’t the biggest fan of the genre outside of the classics and it excels thanks to Paul Newman’s charms.
2 Weeks in Another Town is a well done, somewhat inside baseball of Hollywood, and a fine follow-up to The Bad and the Beautiful, that features two well done performances by screen legends Kirk Douglas and Edward G. Robinson.
The Great Meadow is a well acted western, with John Mack Brown gives a commanding performance, and rather dark in many respects. Although the western genre isn’t really my thing, with few exceptions, this actually wasn’t half bad.
This was kind of a fun little romantic-comedy-adventure flick featuring good performances all around, especially John Blondell and Glenda Farrell, kind of surprised Hollywood hasn’t poached this and did a remake at this point.
Woman Chases Man is a charming romantic comedy thanks to the lead performances by Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea; it’s an incredibly fun flick. The DVD released by Warner Brothers is part of the “Samuel Goldwyn Classics” line.
A Notorious Affair is an amiable enough romance-drama but hardly special, though I did enjoy the performances from Basil Rathbone, known mostly for his portrayal as Sherlock Holmes from 1939-46, as well as the tremendous Kay Francis.
