Hamm has a Disney film opening May 16th. I saw the trailer at a cineplex recently. On the surface, it seems to be a "fish out of water" baseball movie. We can tell that Hamm's character and the gifted foreign baseball phenomenons will learn that we're all one.
If you've seen it, leave me your reviews in the comments section.
For you serious classic film fans -- and I mean so serious that some of your all-time favorites are silent films -- take a good look at Jon Hamm. To me, he has a very strong resemblance to actor George O'Brien, the big athletic and very talented actor who starred opposite Janet Gaynor in the silent film classic, Sunrise (1927).
Sunrise -- A Song of Two Humans, airs on TCM. If you've not seen this tale of a young man and wife, treat yourself and rent the DVD. What a beautiful, touching film this is. In college, we studied this movie in one of my film history courses.
There you have it. Notes on a new movie and mentions of some classic films that you find on DVD. Enjoy.
