February Movies

Continuing the series from January, we started out with a few more Boston Blackies.

Confessions of Boston Blackie
(1941) 2/1 IMDb
#2. Tricky as ever! Lot's of PM people in this one. Formula Fun!

Alias Boston Blackie (1942) 2/6 IMDb
#3. Not bad! Blackie even slipperier than usual. A young Larry Parks!

Boston Blackie Goes Hollywood (1942) 2/7 IMDb
#4. Pretty much the same as always. Am I burned out already?

The Corpse Came C.O.D. (1947) 2/11 IMDb
A light Hollywood murder mystery. Opens like a documentary on the movie biz with visits to popular nightspots and cameos of famous columnists and broadcasters of the times. Fun! Kind of tricky. Great ending.

Times Square Playboy (1936) 2/18 IMDb
June Travis and Warren William. Not enough June. Pretty funny. Like a play, which it was.

The excitement never stops...

I got an email from Amazon in Germany today. This is always fun since I don't understand so good the language. :-) They wanted my feedback on a recent order from etcc-versand, a Marketplace seller I think. I gave them a 5 and said "Alles gut! Aber ich verstehe Deutsche Sprache nicht." Was that correct?
