Instead, he sweeps up his ex-wife (Ellen Green), his co-workers and his unstable radio audience into a darkly comic marathon bout of compulsive risk taking.Shock radio is just a job , Champlain is told, just a form of entertainment, a show. But both he and his fans - the marginal, the pathetic, the angry, the lost, the confused, the extreme, the desperate and the dangerous - know better.

The Bluebeard legend has been adapted many times through the years. This classic film noir variation on the tale incorporates influences from Daphne du Maurier s Rebecca into the mix, with gripping results. Soon after architect Mark Lamphere (Michael Redgrave, Dead of Night) marries Celia (Joan Bennett, Suspiria), she gradually begins to suspect that he has a past life that he s been keeping from her. But she doesn t know the half of it, and when he leaves on a business trip, she starts to uncover the sinister secret of his purpose-designed house and its apparent surplus of rooms, the seventh of which is kept firmly locked. What lies beyond its door? From the strongly expressionist use of symbolic flowers and shadows in the opening sequence, legendary director Fritz Lang (Metropolis, M) stamps his artistic signature on every frame, helped by suitably high-contrast cinematography by Stanley Cortez (The Night of the Hunter) and a score by composer Miklós Rósza (The Killers) that insinuates itself into every emotional nook and cranny.

William Powell and Carole Lombard star in an outrageous screwball send‐up of Depression‐era America CAROLE LOMBARD (To Be or Not to Be) and WILLIAM POWELL (The Thin Man) dazzle in this definitive screwball comedy, directed by GREGORY LA CAVA (Stage Door)—a potent cocktail of romantic repartee and Depression‐era social critique. Irene (Lombard), an eccentric Manhattan socialite, wins a society‐ball scavenger hunt after finding one of the “items” on the list, a “lost man” (Powell), at a dump. She gives the man she believes to be a down‐and‐out drifter work as the family butler, and soon falls head over heels in love. Her attempts to both woo Godfrey and indoctrinate him in the dysfunctional ways of the household make for an unbeatable series of madcap hijinks. La Cava’s deft film was the first to garner Oscar nominations in all four acting categories, and it is one of Hollywood’s greatest commentaries on class and the social unrest of its time.

Forever sprawled on the beach, guzzling beer after beer. We love our booze we respect the legacy that our drinking spots hold for us. Of those we have many. The turn-of-the-century taverns that have been standing strong, helping many a Goenkars nurse broken hearts and dreams. The familiar fac-es with raised glasses that greet you as you open the creaky door to your regular joint. The smell of food in the air and old songs playing on the radio somewhere. You let the comfort of the tavern, its people, and the booze wash over you like a tonic. Swanky underground bars next, with dim lights and blaring music. Welcome to the magic that lets you get comfortably numb, lose yourself, talk with a stranger about life, and just like that find a solution to your problems. Then it's the heritage homes that have opened up their lavish interiors. Where there's equal demand for world-class brands as there is for local feni. Goans we love our 'cop' and we sure as hell know how to enjoy it.
