  1. Ah, Kristina, so much movie madness here at SPEAKEASY – the fun never ends! By the way, fans of George Raft might want to keep an eye on TCM this Friday, since there will be Raft thrillers from THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT 9 a.m. EST through A DANGEROUS PROFESSION through at 6:30 p.m. EST. Seems Raft sure got a lot done, considering all the films he turned down that ended up being classics! :-)


    1. Thanks, as always for dropping by! If you ever get the chance to see BOLERO with Raft & Carole Lombard, WOW is all I’ll say they had great chemistry there. I like him, but can’t imagine him in those famous few he did turn down.
