  • My fifth John M. Stahl film, and I like the dude a lot though find it impossible to get a handle on what makes him Distinctive, so let's table that for the moment. Nifty, unhurried comedy about an Edwardian misanthrope who wants to be left alone to paint mediocre, genteel artworks... but finds temporary comfort in unexceptional, middle-aged domesticity before being forced to (once again) find peace at the end of the world.

  • Stahl brought a delightfully light touch to the deadpan comedy “Holy Matrimony” (1943), about a fame-shy British artist who assumes the identity of his dead valet.
