I Met My Love Again (1938) ClassicFlix Trailer

Out today for the first time on DVD, here's a trailer we cut for our restoration of I Met My Love Again (1938) starring Henry Fonda and Joan Bennett.


College sweethearts Julie Weir (Joan Bennett) and Ives Towner (Henry Fonda) are very much in love and engaged to be married. But because Ives feels like a “nobody”, he asks Julie if she could wait until he makes something of himself. Julie consents, but after two long years and without a wedding date in sight, she meets and impulsively marries Michael, a charismatic writer.

However, Julie soon finds out that her new husband (Alan Marshal) is a loafer who is more interested in partying than supporting his family. Things then go from bad to worse when Michael is accidentally killed (at a party), leaving Julie and her daughter penniless and stranded in Paris.

But her Aunt William (Dame May Whitty) hasn’t given up hope that Julie could rekindle her romance with Ives and provides her with enough money to come back home to Vermont. Will Julie’s arrival be enough to blunt the attentions of a young co-ed (Louise Platt) who has intentions of marrying Ives herself?

Producer Walter Wanger brought Allene Corliss’ novel Summer Lightning to the big screen in 1938 as I Met My Love Again, directed by Arthur Ripley and Joshua Logan. It would be the motion picture debut for Logan, a celebrated stage director (whose early theatrical productions starred Fonda and his pal James Stewart) who wouldn’t receive credit on another film until 1955.

I Met My Love Again also served as the cinematic debut of actress Louise Platt (whom Wanger would later cast in Stagecoach), in addition to offering an excellent showcase for such favorites such as Dame May Whitty and a young Tim Holt. Above all, it’s the luminescent teaming of Henry Fonda and Joan Bennett in a film that will be a favorite of those who believe love triumphs over all!

Blondie - Television Series (1957) "The Kiss" Clip

Here's a fun clip from our recently released Blondie - The Complete 1957 Television Series (1957) with Barbara Nichols and Eddie Ryder as guest stars.


Released on September 25th, 2018 from ClassicFlix, Blondie - The Complete 1957 Television Series stars Arthur Lake as Dagwood and Pamela Britton as Blondie.

THIS CLIP is from the episode "The Glamour Girl" and with Barbara Nichols and Eddie Ryder as guest stars.

SYNOPSIS:

Newly transferred from original 35mm elements, and virtually unseen for over 60 years, Blondie - The Complete 1957 Television Series makes its home video debut with all 26 sparklingly sharp episodes in this 4-disc DVD set.

Still read today in over 2,000 newspapers across 55 countries, cartoonist Chic Young brought carefree flapper Blondie Boopadoop and her boyfriend Dagwood Bumstead to “the funny papers” in 1930. But it wasn’t until the two of them tied the knot three years later that Blondie became one of the most popular comics in the history of the medium.

The success of the strip spawned one of the longest-running franchises in the Golden Age of Cinema with 28 features produced by Columbia between 1938 and 1950 -- all starring Penny Singleton as Blondie and Arthur Lake as Dagwood. In 1957, legendary Hal Roach Studios brought the comic strip couple to the small screen with Pamela Britton as Blondie and Lake reprising his role as Dagwood… a role he seemed born to play.

A delightful 1950s sitcom that perfectly captures the jovial domestic spirit of the strip, Blondie also stars Stuffy Singer and Ann Barnes as the Bumstead children (Alexander, formerly Baby Dumpling, and Cookie). It also features Florenz Ames as J.C. Dithers, Dagwood’s autocratic boss and Harold “The Great Gildersleeve” Peary as Dagwood’s friendly nemesis Herb Woodley.

Character great Elvia Allman is also part of the fun, with guest appearances by Alan Mowbray, Frank Nelson, Barbara Nichols, June Vincent, Judi Meredith, Gregg Palmer, Alan Reed, William Schallert, Pamela Duncan, Fritz Feld and many more!
