For the nineteenth day of the B&S About Movies April Movie Thon, let’s remember.
April 19: Pre-1950 — Let’s go back in time and discuss a movie made a long, long time ago.
All April long, we’ll have thirty themes as writing prompts. If you’d like to be part of it, you can just send us an article for that day to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it on your site and share it out with the hashtag #BSAprilMovieThon.
Here are some films that we can recommend to watch today:
Curse of the Cat People (1944): Somehow, sequels can be better than the original movies. Here’s an example.
The Lash of the Penitentes (1936): Yes, this was made in 1936. Yes, it’s going to blow your mind.
Lucky Ghost (1942): Race films — as they were called — featured parts for actors that never really got the chance to be anything other than servants. This is one such film.
