toast of ny

Don't know about you but I prefer my robber barons to be cynical/venal, not kindly/jolly. I'm also partial to movies where Cary Grant is first not second banana. Oh, and films that feature the worthlessness of Confederate bonds will almost never be high on my list. In other words, a solid C.
Identify Farmer movie (out of context)
Back in the mid 1940s I saw a movie with Frances, I was teenager but was enthralled with Frances, all I can remember; scene took place in a cabin or mountain abode, I don't recall the male lead but do remember Frances coming down a narrow stair while singing the words "Whispering Winds", alas nothing more.This is not the movie where a rich man hauls the group back east to society.

Couldnt finish film
- Laura J
I had this taped from a few weeks ago and made time to watch it. It didnt look like my kind of film but because of who was in the cast, I thought it couldn't be that bad. I lost interest and had to delete it with only 20 minutes left! I see most other people reviewing liked it, so I wonder what I missed or didnt see in the film.
Another great pairing of Edward Arnold and Frances Farmer. A shame each of them did not have better careers, Arnold soon evolved into a character actor (always wonderful) and Frances's bright star faded way too quickly as the demons in her personal life were too much for her to overcome.
The Toast of New York (1937)
- James Higgins
Based on an actual person, but very Hollywoodized. But it is a very entertaining film, with Edward Arnold doing an exceptional job. He is such an under appreciated actor. Cary Grant does well in an early role for him. Good story, blessed also by the presence of Frances Farmer. A fine classic.
