PICCADILLY 1929 Silent Film


Recommended Posts

All I wanted to see was Anna Mae Wong in an allllllmost leading role. What a treasure this movie was, though. The director, a German in London was creative and brilliant. There was Cyril Ritchard as a night club dancer, Charles Laughton and Ray Milland as background players without any lines. There was a Chinese fellow who spoke with a Cockney accent, according to the dialog cards. The story was multi-layered with passion and seduction and jealousy. I've always thought the song OLD LIMEHOUSE BLUES was set in a Chinatown, but I never knew the Chinatown was in England. And yes, I enjoyed the vision of Anna Mae Wong as an alllllmost leading lady. Two thumbs way up!

If you mean THE THING WITH TWO HEADS his mad scientist head was grafted onto the shoulders of football legend Roosevelt Greer. I didn't see it. Looked too uninteresting.


Steve Martin was in THE MAN WITH TWO BRAINS - an excellent comedy -- I've managed to see it 3 or 4 times.
