Movie Poster: original one sheet for The Women, 1939, with Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer.
A Free Soul is a 1931 Pre-Code starring the alluring Norma Shearer; Lionel Barrymore, Clark Gable and Leslie Howard. Shearer's character is a good girl from a moneyed family who falls for the considerable charms and exciting lifestyle of a handsome mobster, Clark Gable, but makes a pact with her alcoholic defence attorney father, Lionel Barrymore, to never see Gable again if he can give up the demon drink. One of my favorite lines, from Shearer to Gable, "oh dear, you want to talk some more?" She had a productive career in the silent screen and carried it into the talkies, right up until her retirement in 1942.

**This is the fifteenth in a series of once living persons and the actors who portrayed them. Shown here is Norma Shearer portraying Marie Antoinette in the 1938 film “Marie Antoinette", co-starring Tyrone Power. Marie Antoinette, baptized Maria Antonia Josepha (or Josephina) Johanna, born November 2, 1755, was Archduchess of Austria, and Dauphine of France from 1770 to 1774 and Queen of France and Navarre from 1774 to 1792. She was the fifteenth and penultimate child of Holy Roman Empress Maria Theresa and Emperor Francis I. In April 1770, upon her marriage to Louis-Auguste, Dauphin of France, she became Dauphine of France. She assumed the title Queen of France and of Navarre when her husband ascended the throne as Louis XVI upon the death of his grandfather Louis XV in May 1774. Initially charmed by her personality and beauty, the French people eventually came to dislike her, accusing her of being extravagnant, promiscuous and of harboring sympathies for France's enemies, particularly Austria, her cou ...
The real Garbo worked just down the street… "In 1924, movie theater magnate Marcus Loew bought Metro Pictures Corporation (founded in 1916) and Goldwyn Pictures (founded in 1917) to provide a steady supply of films for his large Loew's Theatres chain. However, these purchases created a need for someone to oversee his new Hollywood operations… Loew addressed the situation by buying Louis B. Mayer Pictures on April 17, 1924. Because of his decade-long success as a producer, Mayer was made a vice-president of Loew's and head of studio operations in California, with Harry Rapf and Irving Thalberg as heads of production. Though Loew's Metro was the dominant partner, the new studio inherited Goldwyn's studios in Culver City, California, the former Goldwyn mascot Leo the Lion (which replaced Metro's parrot symbol)… Within one year, beginning in 1942, L.B. Mayer released his four highest-paid actresses from their studio contracts; Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, Greta Garbo and Jeanette MacDonald. After a tw ...

Carmel Myers (April 4, 1899 – November 9, 1980) was an American actress who worked chiefly in silent movies. Life and careerr Myers was born in San Francisco, the daughter of an Australian rabbi and Austrian Jewish mother.[1] Her father became well-connected with California's emerging film industry, and introduced her to film pioneer D. W. Griffith, who gave Carmel a small part in Intolerance (1916). Myers also got her brother Zion Myers into Hollywood as a writer/director. From this beginning, Myers left for New York, where she acted mainly on stage for the next two years. She was signed by Universal, where she emerged as a popular actress in vamp roles. Her most popular film from this period is probably the romantic comedy All Night, opposite Rudolph Valentino. By 1924 she was working for MGM, making such films as Broadway After Dark, which also starred Adolphe Menjou, Norma Shearer and Anna Q. Nilsson. In 1925, she appeared in arguably her most famous role, that of the Egyptian vamp Iras in Ben-Hur, ...

Scott Hastings Beckett, or “Scotty” as he was affectionately known in the “Our Gang” series (pictured at left), was born in 1929 in Oakland, California. Beckett was discovered by a casting director at the age of three while singing for his hospitalized father in Pig Latin at Cedars of Lebanon. After auditioning, he landed a part in “Gallant Lady” (1933) appearing with fellow child actor and Rascal Dickie Moore (pictured at right). In 1934, Beckett followed Moore to the cast of Our Gang and became Spanky’s sidekick with his trademark baseball cap and oversized sweater. His tenure on the series was short as he was replaced by Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer the following year, but Beckett found further fame in features from the late 1930s into the early 1950s. Some of his films included “Dante’s Inferno” (1935) with Spencer Tracy, “Charge of the Light Brigade” (1936) with Errol Flynn, “Marie Antoinette” (1938) with Norma Shearer, “The Blue Bird” (1940) with Shirley Temple, an ...

I have been thrilled to be able to view TCM Movies this week,while stuck in alabama...some people told me i was being morbid, since all the actors i like are dead..I consider these *** stupid in this scene..ignorant..and hope they will F-off Rapidly...3 Sweets..Awesome talent...Norma Shearer, Ginger Rogers, Myrna Loy...They are my turn-ons..Awesome women!
"The Great Ziegfeld" (1936) (MGM) just started. Bliss. Every single actor that worked at MGM is in this movie. Even I'm in this movie! 3:) William Powell plays "Ziggy" and Luise Rainier plays the role of Anna Held. I had forgotten that Luise won the Academy Award for Best Actress for this movie. I love Luise in "the telephone scene" in this film. Her dialogue is wonderfully written. The movie also won other Oscars: Best Picture of 1936 and Best Dance Direction. They don't give Oscars for dance anymore. :( And . . . the "entire" crew and staff of MGM worked on this movie -- The Greats: Adrian; Hunt Stromberg; Cedric Gibbons; and Douglas Shearer (the brother of Norma Shearer, of course). :-D It's a long movie: 2 hours, 56 minutes. I love, love it!
The beautiful Hollywood Hotel built in 1905 and during the golden era of Hollywood played host to many famous celebrities, celebrities such as Rudolph Valentino, Alla Nazimova, and Norma Shearer made their home here in the 1920's. The building was razzed in the 1950's and is now the site of the Hollywood and Highland Center where the Oscars are currently held.
A movie still with 24 years old Norma Shearer in "The Devil's Circus" a drama written and directed by Danish director Benjamin Christensen in 1926. Christensen who was become suddenly famous after the release of his praised (and controversial) "Haxan" went in America where he directed seven feature movies of whom only four survives ("Devil's Circus" among them). r.m.
It's so interesting that, in all of his early films, when he was just starting to establish himself, Clark Gable hadn't grown his mustache yet. The story I heard was that he had to grow it for a role, and liked it so much he kept it. Here he in the film that really made him, with Norma Shearer, in 1931's "A Free Soul." Some pretty hot stuff going on in this one, even by today's standards.

Ramón Novarro (February 6, 1899 – October 30, 1968) was a Mexican film, stage and television actor who began his career as a leading man in silent films in 1917. Novarro was promoted by MGM as a "Latin lover" and became known as sex symbol after the death of Rudolph Valentino. Novarro was born José Ramón Gil Samaniego on February 6, 1899 in Durango, Mexico, to Dr. Mariano N. Samaniego. He moved with his family to Los Angeles, California, to escape the Mexican Revolution in 1913. A second cousin of the Mexican actresses Dolores del Río and Andrea Palma, he entered films in 1917 in bit parts. He supplemented his income by working as a singing waiter. His friends, actor and director Rex Ingram and his wife, the actress Alice Terry, began to promote him as a rival to Rudolph Valentino, and Ingram suggested he change his name to "Novarro." From 1923, he began to play more prominent roles. His role in "Scaramouche" (1923) brought him his first major success. In 1925, Novarro achieved his greatest success ...

Clark Gable (quick bio) Clark Gable's mother died when he was seven months old. At 16 he quit high school, went to work in an Akron (Ohio) tire factory and decided to become an actor after seeing the play "The Bird of Paradise". He toured in stock companies, worked oil fields and sold ties. In 1924 he reached Hollywood with the help of Portland, Oregon, theatre manager Josephine Dillon, who coached and later married him (she was 17 years his senior). After playing a few bit parts he returned to the stage, becoming lifelong friends with Lionel Barrymore. After several failed screen tests (for Barrymore and Darryl F. Zanuck), Gable was signed in 1930 by MGM's Irving Thalberg. Joan Crawford asked for him as co-star in Dance, Fools, Dance (1931) and the public loved him manhandling Norma Shearer in A Free Soul (1931) the same year. His unshaven lovemaking with bra-less Jean Harlow in Red Dust (1932) made him MGM's most important star. At one point he refused an assignment and the studio punished him by loanin ...

The Last of Mrs. Cheyney (1937) is a drama/comedy motion picture starring Joan Crawford, William Powell, Robert Montgomery and Frank Morgan. The film tells the story of a chic jewel thief in England, who falls in love with one of her marks. Director Richard Boleslawski died suddenly in the middle of production, and the film was completed, uncredited, by Dorothy Arzner and George Fitzmaurice. The movie plot is adapted from the 1925 play by the same name, written by Frederick Lonsdale. Two other versions of the film were made: in 1929 with the same title, starring Norma Shearer, and in 1951, as The Law and the Lady, starring Greer Garson.
Is it true that the part where a crazed fan rips off Esther's veil happened to Norma Shearer at Irving Thalberg's funeral?
I think I read that this scene happened to Norma Shearer in real life

Currently watching The Student Prince In Old Heidelberg. One of my all time favorite silent films. Ramon Novarro and Norma Shearer have great chemistry. Wish it would get a DVD release.

Tribute : Baba Amte (1914-2008) Dr Murlidhar Devidas Amte popularly known as Baba Amte, was an Indian social worker and social activist known particularly for his work for the rehabilitation and empowerment of poor people suffering from leprosy. He is the non-medical person in the world who has received maximum medicine related awards. The social activist is best known for the four Ashrams he helped set up in central India — three of them for leprosy patients and the fourth for adivasis (tribals). Anyone who has visited these places (Anandvan, Somnath, Ashokvan and Hemalkasa) would see the very rare combination of a fantastic visionary and also a great implementer of visions that he was. But, he had gone far ahead of that work. Early Life Baba Amte was born to Devidas and Laxmibai Amte in the city of Hinganghat, Maharashtra, India. It was a wealthy family. His father was a British government official with responsibilities for district administration and revenue collection. Murlidhar had acquired his nic ...
