“It’s like a fine painting. You buy it with your heart, not your head.”
It’s January 2022 and it’s time for our monthly member bonus episode. This month, we’re looking at H.C. Potter’s 1948 film Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. It fits in nicely in both our Black-and-White Cinematography of James Wong Howe series as well as our Cary Grant series. Join us – Pete Wright and Andy Nelson – as we add to both of these series Potter’s film.
