Claude Rains in "Notorious"

 Claude Rains in “Notorious” (1946)

   Wednesdays have been fun on Turner Classic Movies. Claude Rains has been the featured actor on the cable channel in the month of September (8pm EST / 5pm PST).

    The August release of my book, Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, is special, since the first chapter happens to be about Mr. Claude Rains. It’s not often that TCM spotlights the wonderful character actors with a month-long tribute, but the cable channel is savvy enough to have chosen a fine supporting player that carved a four-decade career in cinema. If you’ve missed spending Wednesday’s with TCM, why not treat yourself over the next several weeks watching Claude Rains, an unforgettable co-star. And, a personal favorite.


    Brand new books have been written about this gifted co-star of the big screen. I’d like to think that Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History offers a unique perspective on Rains’ movie choices.

Until next time>                              “never forget”
