Tonight I am watching another title I picked up at Kino Lorber's March Madness sale. It has Ida Lupino and that is all the reason I need to watch it.

March has marched on by me. It's been a rough month. Enough said. I'm ready to throw myself back into the movies. While I haven't been able to watch movies this month, it did not stop me from acquiring more of them. That's what happens when multiple sales provide the opportunity, and a desire to find a pleasurable escape creates a motive. Tonight's feature was the result of Kino's March Madness sale. It features Theda Bara, one of film's early sex symbols, and it's one of only a few of her films that have survived.
"You men shield each other's shameful sins. But were it a woman at fault, how quick you'd be to expose and condemn her."
|The Vampire. Crushing men's spirits like she crushes flowers.|
|The family enjoys a sunset.|
|The Vampire's victim.|
|He wants to destroy her.|
|But he can't.|
|There's only one way to escape her.|
|The brazen hussy shows off her ankle.|
|Not so secret affair.|
|Being snubbed by society.|
|Letting their love hang out in Italy.|
|Life before traffic lanes. She can almost touch her papa.|
|The Vampire prevents a reconciliation.|
|Maintaining his dependency.|
|Partying with good time gals.|
|He is not happy that she is already working on her next victim.|
|Not something a kid should have to see.|
|Another one bites the dust.|

The Criterion films have arrived! And it's not a moment too soon to lose myself in the sweet, soothing relief of I Wanna Hold Your Hand, that tells about a group of kids who are trying to get in to the Ed Sullivan theater to see the Beatles perform. This movie is pure fun, and that is just what was needed tonight after an extremely difficult week. I will watch this film again and again. I love the Beatles, and their music brings me perpetual joy. This film would pair well with The Rutles.
