Let's Have a Lewis Stone Day on TCM
As far as I know, Lewis Stone has never been featured in a special TCM star of the month or marathon. I wish TCM would do this. Lewis Stone was a consummate actor and a wonderful person who was kind and encouraging to young actors. Early in his life, he lost his young daughter Lucy and after this his wife fell or jumped out of a New York City window and died. Marked by tragedy, he never succumbed to it and continued his long and distinguished career (I also wish there was a written biography in book form.) A director (I think Clarence Brown) said no actor ever understood the camera better than Lewis Stone. And he could play almost anything. Any film he is in is worth watching; the Hardy series gave him the opportunity to fully develop a character over numerous films. Applause for Lewis Stone and for all the wonderful entertainment he gave us.
Who Can Forget Him In Grand Hotel
For someone who was extremely young when his hair went gray,he sure had a busy screen career.Very distinguished looking man,well prepared for his roles,was it good old fashioned Yankee ingenuity?Or dedicated work ethic,either way,he brought style to the screen in every picture he graced.
A True Gent Of The Screen
Another New Englander,like myself.Class all the way in everything he did.Absolutely loved him in Three Godfathers!He does need a biography,and George Macready,too,2 truly classy New Englanders-make me proud to be from there!Lewis from Massachusetts (thought someone said he was from Rhody,just like Macready-now they say Worchester,MAand another source said New Hampshire!!)
Best of Andy Hardy
This has the best, but also a bit of the worst, acting in the Hardy films. Mickey Rooney's portrayal of a son beset by anxiety over his mother's illness is some of the best acting he ever did, and very moving. Once again Lewis Stone and Fay Holden give us wonderfully realistic performances as James and Emily, and Cecelia Parker is good as Andy's pest of a sister. Why oh why is there no good information on Stone and Holden? Stone, at least, deserves a biography and I hope one day such a book will be forthcoming. I would love to know more about this dignified and courtly man who was among the favored and favorite of LB Mayer. The Hardy films show the best of Mayer's involvement in his films; the cinematography is fabulous and looks like it was filmed yesterday.
