The role of the Barney Fife had originally cast Charles Laughton, but a fight w/Francis Bavier at the 1st table read ended it.
Ugh! Ghastly! Who drinks prosecco at this hour? Think I'll add a splash of creme de cassis to it, gee it up a little. There! A Kir Royal - well, an Italianate Kir Royal: "chir royale"? Whatever . . . But I'm digresssing. I haven't even begun and I'm wondering off on a tangent about cheap Italian plonk already! Not that booze is entirely irrelevant to my topic. If I can just shut up about other things and get to the point, that is. But - what *is* the point? Is it that I've undergone a second round of abrasive criticism today for being "weird", or is the point . . . Gore Vidal? Apparently news flashed round the globe this w/e that GV had had sex with a thousand guys *before* he was 25; with God knows how many hustlers and rent-boys later in life, and with celebrities like Tyrone Power, Rock Hudson, Fred Astaire, what's-his-name the guy who starred in Midnight Express, Noel Coward and Charles Laughton. To cap off this tittle-tattle, strong hints were made that GV had had sex in Bangkok - a name to conjour w ...

ADVISE & CONSENT (Preminger, '62) Otto's best of the 60s hasn't aged. Franchot Tone, Charles Laughton and Burgess Meredith are sensational.
After watching "Midnight Cowboy" again, I thought about the best performances in film history. So, because I can, I list them here, in my humble opinion. The first two on each list are my favorites - rest are in alphabetical order. Male: 1) Charles Chaplin in "Monsieur Verdoux"; 2) Marlon Brando in "On The Waterfront." Daniel Day-Lewis in "My Left Foot," Henry Fonda in "The Grapes Of Wrath," Dustin Hoffman in "Tootsie," Charles Laughton in "Witness For The Prosecution," Jason Robards in "Long Day's Journey Into Night," Peter Sellers in "Lolita," James Stewart in "Vertigo," Jon Voight in "Midnight Cowboy." Female: 1) Katharine Hepburn in "Long Day's Journey Into Night"; 2) Lillian Gish in "Way Down East." Bette Davis in "All About Eve," Danielle Darrieux in "Earrings Of Madame de...", Greta Garbo in "Camille," Isabelle Huppert in "The Piano Teacher," Nicole Kidman in "Birth," Angela Lansbury in "The Manchurian Candidate" (1962), Vivien Leigh in "Gone With The Wind," Anna Magnani in "The Golden Coach. ...

I like how Charles Laughton is playing Ruggles, but the man playing his new boss is played by Charles Ruggles.
Though it's Mary Boland Day on THE RUGGLES OF RED GAP (1935) belongs to Charles Laughton. Watch it at 8.
Good little interview with Michael Caine on TCM2 and he loves Lee Marvin and Point Blank! And a clip of Charles Laughton as Captain Bligh
Unfortunately haven't seen that film, yet!, but CHARLES LAUGHTON is and always will be a genius.
Tonight: More Mary Boland. Charles Laughton in RUGGLES OF RED GAP (1935) at 8:00pm ET on
Charles Laughton is doing some amazing work here sneaking in some absurdly surreal & expressive shots/lighting. Truly superb
That would be a tough gig. I'd check to see if Charles Laughton and Alfred Hitchcock fancied a pint.
Person at the Film Quiz today: "Charles Laughton couldn't have been very good if he only directed one film". I needed Mitchum's left hand.

HMS Bounty was the ship used in the film 'The Bounty' starring Charles Laughton & Clark Gable & anchored in St. Petersburg, FL for a time.
If you have Amazon Prime, check out Charles Laughton's only directorial credit, NIGHT OF THE HUNTER. I saw it many years ago and watched it again tonight. Visually, it is one of the most striking films you're likely to see, shot by Stanley Cortez (who also did the honors with Welle's THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, another remarkable film, even in its carved-up state). Robert Mitchum usually walked sleepily through most of his movies. Not so here. It's a performance that may haunt your dreams. And one of the great film scores by William Schuman. (I haven't been able to find a recording of it.) It's set during the Depression and it's about the vulnerability of children in that desperate time, a theme that resonates today. With all the technical resources at hand for today's filmmakers, I've seen little in recent years to match the imagery and magic of this film.
Charles was devastated by bad notices...He would take to his bed in agony, reading them again and again. Finally, he devised a method for exorcising them from his soul. He taught a Shakespeare class here at the house in his studio and he would gather the notices and perform them for his students...He'd act the review with tremendous power and vitriol, exhausting himself and then burn it in a bucket. It was very entertaining. -Elsa Lanchester, about her late husband Charles Laughton, as told by Frank Langella
Well, here I am at 3:45 a.m. mst wide awake. The new bed is wonderful..comfortable, etc. I just can't get back to sleep. We had a "date night" last night, and used a gift card that was given to Bill for his bd. We went to The Outback. A friend of ours is the kitchen manager there. It was relaxing and fun..had a nice dinner. We sat and talked and took our time. When we came home, the original "Les Miserables" with Fredric March & Charles Laughton from the 1930's was on TCM. I remember seeing it in about 1975..It's not a musical..very moving and poignant, & I recalled the 1st time I saw it, it was a work night & and I stayed up until 4 in the am watching it. It moved me. Today we are going to friends for a bbq & swimming. They live across the "sac" from Phil & Sarah. Great weekend! Full Moon too!

1935 version of Les Misérables now on TCM. Charles Laughton as Inspector Javert -- who’d have thought he’d be so good in the role?
Thank you, Mary Gallo, for suggesting, and for assisting me in booking, the luxurious Hotel Prince de Galles on l'Avenue George V in Paris for the end of July. Built in 1928 following the 1925 l'Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes (the World Exhibition that launched the "Art Deco" movement), the Hotel Price de Galles was, and continues to be, a legendary jewel of Paris' Art Deco architecture and adornment. It was originally constructed to welcome to Paris during his annual stays the Prince of Wales, future Edward VIII, son of the king of England George V. Over the decades, regular guests included Sir Winston Churchill, Lord Chamberlain, the King of Yugoslavia, Lily Damita (the future Mrs. Errol Flynn), Marlene Dietrich, Charles Laughton, Lana Turner, Gina Lollabrigida, and very soon, Mary Gallo and David Schellenberg. A part of the Starwood Luxury Collection, it is indeed luxury personified. Alas, the Appartement Parisien, which comprises the entire top floor of the h .. ...
Charles Laughton guests on Tennessee Ernie Ford's TV show, and they do a funny version of "Old Rattler" together!
Just watched (for the first time) Witness for the Prosecution - Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich, Charles Laughton, Elsa Lanchester. What a movie! During the ending credits, a voice requests that you do not divulge the outcome of the story to those who haven't seen it (which I won't). Anyway, it's on Netflix and I highly recommend it!
I was so cold and miserable and sad this rainy day that I turned the heat up to 75 and watched "The Man on the Eiffel Tower" staring Charles Laughton and Burgess Meredith made in 1949
Gloria Swanson, Adolphe Menjou, Walter Pidgeon, and Tallulah Bankhead all bless tonight's program with their "pipes". Just wait'll you hear Elsa Lanchester sing "Don't Tell My Mother I've Been Living in Sin"! Poor Elsa...the Bride of Frankenstein on screen and the wife of Charles Laughton in real life.

Gratitude: 5-26 - for Charles Laughton as Henry VIII in the movie, 'The Private Life of Henry VIII.' We recorded this movie, filmed in 1933, with the DVR and the sound quality was not that good. However the genius of Charles Laughton shines. His wife, Elsa Lanchester, was a riotous Anne of Cleves. Politics was not the theme of this story. Henry's many wives are registered in history, but this is also not a historical drama. Henry is shown to be what he was, a glutinous, self-centered lout with every day ups and downs. Great movie, but I must point out an error, especially since it's British-made, and we all know how historically correct they believe they are. At one point Henry addresses Cromwell. Cromwell was four years old when Henry died. Such a silly, unnecessary screw-up. -for more rain. We will take all we can get, except maybe not as much as fell all at one time in San Antonio. Here we've enjoyed a perfect amount. -for the National Memorial Day Concert in Washington D.C. Not because it is the best ...

Choices, choices. Which shall it be? Or shall I just go down the pub?

Late night viewing of Charles Laughton's "The Night of the Hunter" (1955). Pauline Kael once called it the most frightening movie ever made.
It’s time for some Robert Mitchum and we know it. Check out these photos of the brilliant actor on the set of the famous “The Night of the Hunter” by Charles Laughton. I am not the author of these images.
Well Leadfoot Lizzie, if you were finding yourself in total despair earlier about by lack of knowledge or for that matter interest in movieology, this I am sure will put you into a total catatonic state. I decided to look at a list of winners at last’s night event. Of the films mentioned I had heard of only the following as being movies: Lincoln, that is it. The winning movie “Argo” I had never heard of until I read a bit about it. Then it was familiar but I never had any idea what its name was. As far as knew, Django was the great French/Gipsy guitar player. I was disappointed not to have seen that but found out it had nothing to do with him. Anna Karenina to me is a book by Tolstoy. Les Miserables. was a Victor Hugo novel and I do remember a movie of that with Charles Laughton as Inspector Javert. I did know thy did a musical of it which was supposed to be pretty good. I bought my mother tickets to it for her birthday one year. I had no idea it was made into a movie. And that’s it. There’s a . ...

Henry VIII. Emil Jannings, Charles Laughton nailed it - but best is the legendary Sid James and his sensitive portrayal.
Just watched "Les Miserables" and have to tell you, this is a fantastic movie! Several outstanding performances...Russell Crowe is the best Javert I've seen since Charles Laughton owned the role in the 1935 non-musical movie version. Hugh Jackman is great as Jean Valjean and Anne Hathaway wrenches the heart as Fantine. Eddie Redmayne brought tears to my eyes when he sang "Empty chairs, empty tables". Amanda Seyfried puts her beautiful voice on display. Samantha Barks shows why she was chosen to repeat the role of Eponine as she sings of her unrequited love. Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter bring a touch of comedy to every scene they steal. Daniel Huttlestone as Gavroche, the urchin, is a delight. Do yourself an entertainment favor and catch this movie at the BF Opera House this weekend.

'My favorites films'. 'SPARTACUS'. 'Spartacus is a 1960 American epic historical drama film directed by Stanley Kubrick and based on the novel of the same name by Howard Fast.

The movie's all about Cooley; Charles Laughton has a field day & is by far the best thing in the film. opinions on Les Miz... First I was going in with some preconceived notions and had heard some mixed reviews and opinions. Les Misérables is a story that has a very special place in my heart, so I've seen just about every version of it ever told. Movies going back the Charles Laughton version of 1935. The Anthony Perkins/ Richard Jordan version in the 70's. The Gerard Depardieu version, and the really crappy Liam Nelson/ Geoffrey Rush version. Saw the Broadway version, my high school drama dept did a version, and the two anniversary concerts. This was by far my favorite other than the stage show. Hugh Jackson, fantastic job as Valjean. Anne Hathaway...I actually said "holy s%&t!" during "I dreamed a dream" you could see the was palpable. Only weak spot was Russell Crowe. The intimate nature of the shooting, where the actors did the singing on set hurt his performance, it kinda woodened him. Some lines from some sings we're cut, probably for time purposes...some lyrical changes...all for ...

1955 movie starring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, and Lillian Gish; the only film directed by Charles Laughton.
Perfect movie for a rainy/snowy day, "Jamaica Inn" with Charles Laughton and Maureen O'Hara.
She was born Maria Castenada on a train from Mexico to Arizona, but the locale most associated with her is the South Pacific Island paradise of Tahiti. That's because at the age of 18 she appeared in the 1935 Oscar winning Best Picture "Mutiny On The Bounty" that starred Clark Gable, Charles Laughton & Franchot Tone playing a Tahitian beauty who marries the H. M.S. Bounty officer played by Tone. And 25 years later she became, in real life, the 2nd wife of Marlon Brando who was about to embark on a voyage to star in the 1962 remake of that great movie. And ironically, Brando would divorce Movita in 1962 to marry Tarita, the woman who plays the Tahitian princess that he falls in love with in his version. Movita will turn 95 this coming December 4 & she's my "forgotten celebrity who's still with us" for today. She also appeared in 1933's "Flying Down To Rio" (starring Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers in their first film together) singing "The Carioca", and was also in "Hurricane" (1937), "Fort Apache" (194 ...

It might be just me but James Arthur on the X-Factor reminds me of an old actor called Charles Laughton.
Ray Milland, Charles Laughton and *** Fagan are all counting the hours...
I love that film, the only film that Charles Laughton directed. The look of the film & score are haunting! And the acting...!

{on the blog} Movie Moustache Charles Laughton in Island of Lost Souls
I saw "Sidewalks of London" with Vivien Leigh & Charles Laughton yesterday. I really loved that movie! It was so sweet.
Tonight's classic film: 1938's Sidewalks of London with the beautiful Vivien Leigh, Charles Laughton, and Rex Harrison.
one of the joys of starting work at 4 am - Charles Laughton in Rembrandt (1936) on the ABC...
"I woke up wiped out with my voice gone and I'm hobbling around like Quasimodo." Feel better, Charles Laughton. *smirk*
Temporarily escaping the world's realities with a wonderful movie(1938) called THE SIDEWALKS OF LONDON with Vivien Leigh, Rex Harrison and Charles Laughton. Charles Laughton is stealing the show.
Best book on Bounty history is by Caroline Alexander, btw. Differs fr the Charles Laughton movie, tho I love that too!
Pretty sure it was the only film Charles Laughton directed. Robert Mitchum is incredible in it and Stanley Cortez's photography is fantastic
Haunting melody from a masterpiece by Charles Laughton-just find it and watch it! THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER via
If you've never seen ISLAND OF LOST SOULS, make 70 minutes available to let Charles Laughton creep you out. Especially if you're
The ghost of Charles Laughton is a frequent visitor to the Clarins counter.
The perfect geeky way to end Halloween night. Turner Classic Movies has been showing the coolest monster flicks all night. By the time I found it, it was The Wolf Man with Lon Chaney, Jr., followed by The Mummy with Boris Karloff. Now playing is The Mummy's Hand with no one notable, followed by Island of Lost Souls with Charles Laughton and Bela Lugosi, and wraps up with The Invisible Man with Claude Raines. I'm recording the last two for later devouring, methinks! 8)
"...the incomparable Charles Laughton, who, I understand, is an enormous whoopsie..." Jessica Lange is, as usual, astounding!
is loving Wolf Blitzer picking political flicks on TCM. Forgot what a scenery-muncher Charles Laughton was in "Advice and Consent".
Watching the old movie "Advise and Consent" (1962) starring Henry Fonda, Walter Pidgeon, Charles Laughton, and Don Murray, on Turner Classic Movies. What a great movie about political intrigue and power plays in the senate.
Watching "Advise & Consent" on Henry Fonda, Charles Laughton... How have I missed this film?
Is John Hayes MP the Energy Sec related to Charles Laughton? shows an acting performance earlier this week.
Mon's film is The Night of the Hunter (12, 1955). Charles Laughton directS Robert Mitchum and Shelley Winters, in a masterpiece film-noir.
Last night watched a long-time favorite, Billy Wilder's WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION (1957). Outside of his supreme masterpieces--DOUBLE INDEMNITY, SUNSET BOULEVARD, SOME LIKE IT HOT--I don't know that there's any Wilder film I like better. The twisty plot (mainly invented by Agatha Christie) remains fresh and exciting even if you've seen the film so many times that you can almost recite the lines with the actors. The re-creation of the Old Bailey is quite compelling. And to have two such incomparably wonderful stars as Charles Laughton and Marlene Dietrich. . . !
Another one of my favorites playing at the main library in Nashville ,for free, on Saturday @ 2 pm. An early performance of the great Charles Laughton in The Island of Lost Souls! This film distinguishes itself from all the others in that it remains as creepy and disturbing as ever ~
I see that are reissuing Simon Callow's biography of Charles Laughton. It's a great book, do seek it out.
Day 17 of October: watching Charles Laughton's spooky 1955 thriller, The Night of the Hunter.
The wife of Charles Laughton, played the Hunchback in the second version with Maureen O'Hara as Esmeralda and Sir Cedric Hardwicke.
And in case of Charles Laughton, he's more like the John Kennedy Toole of filmmakers. Only did the one film, but man is it incredible.
Would like to see that version. I know 1935's Fredric March/Charles Laughton is excellent.

ignore the insults! Peter Lorre and Charles Laughton had distinct looks! So do you!
Goes further back than that to Charles Laughton or perhaps Harry Champion:
Scene from the movie Witness for Prosecution
and I completely agree. even more, take it up to 11 and do it charles laughton-style. xD
Just watched Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) staring Clark Gable and Charles Laughton.
Good job Charles Laughton wasn't into her 'in that way' then!
See & Elsa Lanchester (who was married to Charles Laughton) in 1935's The Bride of Frankenstein this weekend at the Music Hall
Cheers for the unmerited abuse. i just happen to think Charles Laughton our best film actor.
A magnificent and bizarre film classic, and the only film the great actor Charles Laughton ever directed.
Watched "Captain Kidd" with Charles Laughton. Set in 1699. Establishing shot of London showed the Tower Bridge. Only 2 centuries off.

The Gettysburg Address is the sort of eloquent speech schoolchildren were once expected to commit to memory, much as they were required to bring apples for the teacher and dip each others' pigtails in ink.
How about one of my infamous, show biz trivia questions? It's been a while, so here goes.This veteran British character actor, started his career before WWI, serving as a stage manager in British theaters, which led him eventually into acting. Almost completely blind in his right eye, due to getting gased and schrapneled in WWI service in 1917, he settled into a British career of acting, stage managing and teaching at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA). Among his pupils, John Gielgud, Charles Laughton and Laurence Olivier. He came to America to perform on Broadway in the late 1920's and basically stayed for the rest of his life, eventually becoming a U.S. Citizen. In his mid 40's age wise, he became a character acting star in films from the mid '30's to the mid 60's. Married 6 times, he hated Hollywood and when not shooting a movie, he had a penchant for buying farms on the east coast and when Hollywood called, he'd hop a train to head to Los Angeles from his farms in first, Pennsylvania, then New J ...
Wish there were a movie in which Claude Rains & Sidney Greenstreet battle James Mason & Charles Laughton.

Setting the scene for the rest of the film, Charles Laughton as the domineering father and Brenda de Banzie as the strong willed eldest daughter.
Can you recite the Gettysburg Address? Charles Laughton can. Comments appreciated
I do like the silent Hunchback but IMO the Charles Laughton 1 is a bit better.
Charles Laughton was a fine actor (and director, although unfortunately he only directed one film).

Halloween film last night: Island of Lost Souls-Brilliant precode horror with Charles Laughton's career best turn as a sadistic Dr. Moreau.
Watching ISLAND OF LOST SOULS w/Charles Laughton and Bela. Erle C. Kenton before he did those FRANKENSTEIN sequels.
Gerri and I are watching Spartacus. Probably the best acting ensemble ever. Sir Laurence Olivier , Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis, Charles Laughton, Jean Simmons, and Peter Ustinov. Absolutely incredible performances. Nothing even in the same world since.
It's got so that every time I walk into a restaurant I get not only soup but an impersonation of Captain Bligh. - Charles Laughton
"Witness for the prosecution". Extraordinary Charles Laughton made this story unforgettable. Marlene Dietrich looks well despite her age
Today’s scary movie – THE STRANGE DOOR from 1951. With Boris Karloff and Charles Laughton.
Charles Laughton and Peter Ustinov were modestly corpulent in a jolly way. Morbid obesity is a metaphor for "has a problem"
Today in 1929 Sean O'Casey's "Silver Tassie," premieres in London at the Apollo Theatre starring Charles Laughton and Barry Fitzgerald.
Lecturing on Henry VIII on film this morning - from 1933 Charles Laughton to 2003 Ray Winstone.
You know, Charles Laughton is batting a thousand as a director. THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, yes. (So what if it's his ONLY film, shut up! :)
There needs to be a good biography of Elsa Lanchester...Bride of beard for Charles Laughton...lots of good stuff
Known as the "Queen of Technicolor" and the "Big Red", Maureen O'Hara began her career in Hollywood with the help of Charles Laughton, who, after seeing a screen test of Maureen, became mesmerized by her hauntingly beautiful eyes. Before casting her to star in Jamaica Inn (1939), he changed her name from Maureen FitzSimons to "Maureen O'Hara" - a bit shorter last name for the marquee. Maureen's next picture was to be (The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939)) at RKO Pictures, also starring Charles Laughton. The epic film was an extraordinary success. She was only 19 by that time, yet, unlike most stars of her era, she started at the top, and remained there - with her skills and talents only getting better and better with the passing years. Maureen has an enviable string of all-time classics to her credit that include the aforementioned "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", How Green Was My Valley (1941), Miracle on 34th Street (1947), The Quiet Man (1952). Add to this the distinction of being voted one of the five mos ...
Directed by Robert Z. Leonard. With Robert Taylor, Ava Gardner, Charles Laughton, Vincent Price. Federal agent Rigby, in Central America to trace stolen plane engines, falls for the gorgeous wife of the chief suspect.
"They can't censor the gleam in my eye". Charles Laughton.
witness for the prosecution with Charles Laughton & Marlene Dietrich best ever court room drama. x
Witness for the Prosecution is great! How wonderful is Charles Laughton in it?
Proof that 21st Century western entertainment lost it's soul decades ago: Groucho and Harpo versus young Jackie Cooper ("Our Gang") in an east Hollywood studio back lot go kart race...guess who the referee was? Charles Laughton (original Hunchback of Notre Dame)!
Plastic surgery doppelgangers, detecting invisible alarm beams, safecracking. But probably back to Charles Laughton grimacing in a few mins.
Got THE BIG CLOCK from Netflix today. Think I'll go watch it right now - I love Charles Laughton and Elsa Lanchester!

Luke Sacher, the Academy Awards page that you posted, mentioned the Pickford Center. Would that be in the Smithsonian in DC? Ned and I used to go the Mary Pickford Theater in the National Library across the street from the Jeffersonian. Great old and classics that had been restored. We saw the b&w Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters film directed by Charles Laughton. Fabulous picture, I've forgotten the name. There are two other great theaters in DC; the one in the Kennedy Center and the National Gallery of Modern Art. One week we saw every movie Bo Widerberg had ever made, up to the mid-90s. The richness of theaters in DC is one of reasons I miss living there. Oh well, I'll remind myself of the suffocating summer humidity.
Robert Mitchum - I've probably seen it but it doesn't ring bells! Speaking of which directed by Charles Laughton who was Quizimodo

Right now on TCM: The 1952 film of Les Miserables with Michael Rennie (The Day the Earth Stood Still and The Robe) as Jean Valjean and Debra Paget as Cosette. I wish I knew this was on -- I have the 1935 (Charles Laughton) and 1998 (Liam Neeson) films and the 1978 TV movie (Richard Jordan, Anthony Perkins) of the Victor Hugo classic on DVR. There also is a 1995 film as well as a 2000 film with Gerard Depardieu ... There will be a new movie version of Les Miserables coming out this year. I have yet to see the musical. Does anyone remember an animated adaption of Les Miserables in the 1970s? I thought there was an animated version but I can't find a version ...

Happy Sunday. FYI. 1956: Elvis Presley made the first of three appearances on TV's Ed Sullivan Show. While Ed recovered from an auto accident, actor Charles Laughton introduced Elvis, who sang "Hound Dog," "Don't Be Cruel," and "Reddy Teddy." And 1957: The same song was on the Billboard pop, country & western, and rhythm & blues charts: Jerry Lee Lewis' "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On."
Charles Laughton wrote a biography of Simon Callow? Can't have been much to write about at that age...

Now watching Robert Mitchum and Shelly Winters in Charles Laughton's Night of the Hunter
I watched "Spartacus" today (1960 great cast - Kirk Douglas, Charles Laughton, Lawrence Olivier, Peter Ustinov and directed by Stanley Kubrick). Last week I viewed Ben Hur (1959 Charleton Heston). The Monty Pythons undoubtedly watched these before writing "Life of Brian." It was sort of like watching the first two Frankenstein movies which were satirized/plagiarized (lovingly) by Mel Brooks.

Fine movie, the only film that Charles Laughton directed!
Robert Mitchum's murderous preacher was a brave role to take on in Charles Laughton's sublime
Charles Laughton signed me to my first movie contract at 17. He later asked my parents if he could adopt me.
...and Charles Laughton is absolutely amazing as Henry - and great scene with Lanchester as Anne of Cleves. Solid vintage film.
Obviously, easier the less films you've made. Charles Laughton is always going to get plenty of votes for his sole film Night of the Hunter.

Such a good movie tbh! Charles Laughton should've directed other movies!
Tonight 3 great movies on Turner Classic Movies starring Lillian Gish. At 8 PM D.W. Griffith's epic silent movie "Intolerance", at 11:30 PM Victor Sjostrom's silent "The Wind", and at 1 AM the number 2 movie on my top ten list Charles Laughton's "Night of the Hunter." Spend the evening watching these great movies or if you can't then get out the DVR or Tivo and record them for your future enjoyment.
poor thing - it was old when dear Charles Laughton claimed to have invented it!
Last night's film was Island of Lost Souls (1932) an early take on Dr Moreau with Charles Laughton. clip:
