Come and enjoy a selection of Ronald Grant’s personal favourite films.
The original version of the romance between a female star in the
ascendency and a male star on the skids was set in the world of
Hollywood, not music. It stars Janet Gaynor and Fredric March as the
lovers, along with Adolphe Menjou, May Robson, Andy Devine and Lionel
Stander. Director William Wellman gained the only Oscar of his career
for the film, ironically for Best Writing (Original Story), which he
shared with co-writer Robert Carson. The film was produced by David O.
Selznick, and filmed in Technicolor by W. Howard Greene, who received an
honorary Academy Award for the film’s colour photography.
