"I drove out to Glendale to put three new truck drivers on a brewery company bond, and then I remembered this renewal over in Hollywoodland. I decided to run over there. That was how I came to this House of Death."

Do you know what part of this initial sentence was omitted from the narration in the film?

The Four Feathers

The Four Feathers (1939) with Ralph Richardson.
This version of The Four Feathers stars Ralph Richardson and is directed by Zoltan Korda.  This film is a product of the Korda brothers who evidently carried on screaming arguments when they worked together.  The movie is based on a novel written by A.E.W. Mason. 

Produced by Alexander Korda, production design by Vincent Korda (uncredited).  Alexander Korda evidently spared no expense filming the movie, shooting it in Technicolor and doing most of the exterior shots on location in Sudan.

Hitchcock: Novel/Movie Series

We do a Novel/Movie series at the St. Simons public Library.  I'm reading a new book "Alfred Hitchcock: A Life in Darkness and Light."  It contains a lot of interesting stories abut the making of his films.  I'm only on the early films now, but it's a great read.  Join us for our next series.
