Sara Montiel in Hollywood James M Cain

Serenade, of of the best and the most sordid novel of James M Cain was a very bad and boring picture, probably the worst made by Anthony Mann, but Sara Montiel looks and is divine. She married Mann after the filming.  

The film is a vehicle for Mario Lanza.

Hardy Krüger

A very interesting story, based on true events. I think the rest of his life would deserve another picture. 
Hardy Kruger was gorgeous. 








He was a real nazi soldier (right picture)

Barcelona noir

Un poeta, Carlos Zanon, escribe prosa negra, dura, despiadada y directa como una bala. Una Barcelona noir llena de pequeños criminales y grandes fracasados. Ha sido el mayor orgasmo literario del otoño. Es mejor que James Ellroy. Es la hostia. Quiero leer todo lo suyo.

Brian Aherne

He was English, he was gorgeous, as perfect as a classic Sculpture is. Perfect nose, beautiful profile. His hair perhaps was light brown, or grey blond, we'll never know. There are not films in colour when he was young.




Aherne worked with George Cukor in Sylvia Scarlett where he met two iconic women: Katherine Hepburn and Royal Blond born Natalie Paley
