Once in a Lifetime (1932) is written by one of the great Hollywood screenwriters of all time, Howard Hawks’ main collaborator, Seton I. Miller. The script was adapted from the play by the great George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. It’s a recipe for some dynamite dialogue and a strong narrative - about the shallow gold rush to cash-in on talking pictures as the silent era crashed and burned. comedian Jack Oakie stars and is not annoying here. Zasu Pitts has a good role. Gregory Ratoff is funny. And both Walter Brennan and Alan Ladd appear as unknown, uncredited bit players very briefly. Universal wasn’t known for its comedies in the early 30s, but this one is dynamite if you’re sensibility is properly skewed for this era of Hollywood. click to watch this rare film.

Fun Historical Fact: There used to be more gay and lesbian content in early silent films until religious groups protested resulting in “decency standards.”



THE WAY THE ONE GIRL LOOKS DOWN ALL SHY AND THE OTHER CUPS HER FACE SO SWEETLY TO COMFORT HER- AHHHH

THIS IS MY FAVORITE GIF OF ALL TIME. I ALWAYS GET HAPPY WHEN I SEE IT ON MY DASH GAAAAH.

Fun Historical Fact: This is a scene from the movie, Orphans of the Storm. A movie about two sisters who are not romantically involved and are instead caught up in the turmoil of the French Revolution, separated, and eventually reunited.
Get your facts straight. Do you honestly think the 20’s would have been accepting of the gay community? Oh yeah, women can’t vote, work or think for themselves, and people of color are lower than dirt. But lesbians? Yeah, okay we’re cool with that.
Fuck off. Stop spreading misinformation.

This has been another episode of “Shit Tumblr Makes Up.” Tune in next time for “Cis Privilege in the Holocaust.”

Do you ever have that one internet friend you actually really looked forward to talking to and generally are fond of but they just suddenly cut you off for no reason.

And you can see them interacting with others and it’s just a bit saddening that they don’t even have the courage to talk to you anymore.

a guide for people who can’t tell the 90s from the early 2000s apart

  • if people are dressed in neon, it’s the 90simage
  • if people are dressed in space age metallics, it’s the 2000simage

i hate when a more attractive person has a crush on the same person i do

It’s like performing in a talent show and finding out that Beyonce is going on before you
