Experiment Perilous -1944

I never get rid of George Brent films. But of course, till date there are some films I have not yet seen, like this one. If you watched it, is it a good one? The director is Jacques Tourneur, the same that directed Cat People two years previously, what a great film!

Nunca me canso de ver películas de George Brent. Pero hasta el día de hoy, no las he visto todas, ¡por supuesto! Si has visto esta, ¿te parece buena? En España se vino a llamar Noche en el Alma. El director es Jacques Tourneur, que dirigió también Cat People dos años antes (La Mujer Pantera), una gran película!

Myrna Loy


Apart from the movie “The  Rains Came” where Myrna Loy shared her character among  others like George Brent and Tyrone Power,  a few months ago I watched Stamboul Quest, a 1934 film where  Brent also shares a role in this movie. She is a spy and he takes her arm to enter into a world of great adventures that, at a certain point will put their own lives at risk

Aparte de la Película “Vinieron las Lluvias” donde Myrna Loy compartió papel con George Brent y Tyrone Power, hace unos meses vi Stamboul Quest, de 1934, donde también aparece George Brent. Ella interpreta una espía y él la acompaña hasta llegar a momentos de peligro para ambos.

Here is the movie trailer

Here are some images I found so lovely:







Johannes Heesters turns 107

Last December 5, Johannes Heesters was… 107 years!

This Dutch actor and entertainer still continues to amaze those who interview him for the accuracy in the dates and names when he remembers his career.

Balenciaga: Spanish Master

From last 19th of November till the 19th of February 2011, The  Queen Sofia Spanish Institute in New York is showing  the first exhibition to consider the impact of Spain’s culture, history and art on one of its greatests twentieth-century sons, the legendary designer Cristobal Balenciaga (1895-1972). Hailed as “Fashion’s Picasso” by Cecil Beaton, Balenciaga’s innovations transformed the way women dressed, from the opening of his Paris fashion house in 1937 until his retirement in 1968. His visionary designs and impeccable standards seduced generations of the best-dressed women in the world.

Vintage Subways for Christmas Season


“Many passengers are taking a ride through history aboard vintage subway cars.

For the next few weekends, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will be rolling out the old subway cars every Sunday.

The cars first made their debut back in 1932 and ran throughout the city until the 1970s.
Many riders and transit enthusiasts say it's a rare opportunity to get an up-close look at an integral part of the city's history.
