Call Me Satan

Warning: the post today is of little substance.

My finger is itching to delete Angel on My Shoulder from TiVo. I've made it through the first half-hour and it's grating on me. It's Paul Muni. I'm all for tacky gangster performances, but this is too much. It it just me or is this the photo negative of Here Comes Mr. Jordan?

Mr. Rains is delightful as Mephistopheles. If you think about it, he certainly has "character range." I can picture his resume: "...included acting roles as Lucifer, angel supervisor, US senator, Nazi..."

And just because you shouldn't walk away from this blog daily without learning something: Claude was almost blind in one eye due to injury from a gas attack during WWI (IMDB).
