Today Is A Special Day!

Today is Fredric March's birthday!

Last year, coinciding with TCM programming and my own personal collection, I featured a full month of Fredric March. It was fantastic and draining. My friends thought I was a bit nutty! But I LOVE Fredric March! I got to read the one and only biographical book there is on him, listened and read interviews he gave, looked into his history on the stage and watched a varied collection of his work (not all- I like to spread him out!). I meant to start up a site dedicated solely to him, unfortunately, real life seems to always get in the way.

That being said, I will not be dedicating a full month to him this time around but instead encourage you to click on his mug over here- that will take you to Matthew C. Hoffman's FB page dedicated to him (you will be quite impressed with the photo collection!)

OR click on the March tag at the bottom of this entry to see all there is I have to provide on this wonderful, seriously underrated classic film god star!



  1. I SO agree with you that Fredrich March was a seriously underrated actor. He is one of my top 10 favorites, coming in at about 8 on my list. Do you have a favorite of his films? Mine is The Best Years of Our Lives. That is not only my favorite March film, but one of my top 10 favorite movies ever. I also LOVE Middle of the Night. He was fabulous in that one. And of course A Star Is Born. I'll take the 37 version over the 54 version any day...mostly because of Fredrich March.

  2. Hi Patti! So glad you're a fan too! My favorites of March are Design for Living, The Royal Family of Broadway AND Nothing's so hard to choose!! I have The Best Years of Our Lives but it's one of the ones I am saving to spread out my FM joy. He WAS fabulous and heart wrenching in both Middle of the Night and A Star Is Born. I totally agree that the 1937 version is tops!
