Title: JOHN CARRADINE
Post by: alandhopewell on September 20, 2013, 03:46:20 PM
     It's about time this distinguished actor was celebrated for his body of work....not for his A-list pictures like THE OX-BOW INCIDENT or THE GRAPES OF WRATH, not even for such late-night staples as HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN or BLUEBEARD, but such MOVIE 5-worthy flicks as....

For my money, he made every film he appeared in, from his best to his worst, just a little bit better.

I thought he had a good radio voice.
There's this scene in the Petrified World where he's explaining why his bathysphere didn't work, & his voice really seems to dominate the microphones.

I just watched The Black Sleep again yesterday and he's one of the small highlights in that film.  Spices it up near that chaotic ending.  Rest in peace, Long John!

I was always happy to see him in a movie and consider him a horror movie actor icon but admittedly there's many films even he couldn't really help all that much.

Yeah. He had the seasoned pro attitude to his own role, like Cushing and Lee. Even if everyone else gets hammy, he stays kosher...so to speak.

     Actually, in their own ways, all three of them could chew the scenery with the best.

JOHN CARRADINE may be the most memorable character in STAGECOACH (1939) which is high praise; it's a great movie.   Of course, he's more typically the villain in JESSE JAMES (1939) another great performance.

It's JOHN CARRADINE's voice as the Tramp in THE MOUSE AND HIS CHILD (1977)

     My point exactly. 4-X, what's more fun than watching Vincent Price turn into Turbo-Vincent in some of his films?

     I'd forgotten that one....of course, Bela Lugosi and George Zucco added to the mix.
Remember, RAMBOONA IS ALL-POWERFUL!

John Carradine makes any movie good! Though my favorite Long John role is in the GRAPES OF WRATH-I enjoy seeing him in POLICE WOMEN,ASTRO ZOMBIES,,and anything by Al Adamson!
and,of course,VAMPIRE HOOKERS (1978)!
