    Nice Pre-Code matchup! I’ve never heard of either One Girl’s Confession or Cleo Moore, but I’m definitely eager to check it out now. Stanwyck is probably my overall favorite classic-era actress, though, so Moore would have a lot to overcome to beat her. Of course, Ladies They Talk About is far from Stanwyck’s best film, though she makes it fun.

    Is The Day He Arrives actually getting a release? Interesting…I saw it at AFI Fest last year, but was nodding off rather severely due to exhaustion. I’ve never seen a Hong Sang-soo film play outside of festivals, so I didn’t hold much hope of ever seeing it again to fill in the gaps. I’ll have to see if I can find it playing anywhere nearby.

      Oh, I just clicked through and saw One Girl’s Confession isn’t Pre-Code. The poster looks like it could be.

       That’s part of it, that Ladies They Talk About isn’t that great.  The ending… “You better get that gunshot wound checked out”
      and then I guess they live happily ever after.  That guy is really hard
      to upset.  And then there’s that Stanwyck isn’t very sympathetic at
      all.  I found the romance hard to swallow.  So, One Girl’s Confession
      comes out looking pretty good.  Cleo Moore isn’t a great actress, but
      she is funny.  Better than Stanwyck overall?  No.  But as a performer I
      like her style.  If you want to call it that.
