Celebrate with Jackie Cooper, Clark Gable, and others in “The Christmas Party” (1931)

How does child actor, Jackie Cooper, host a Christmas party for all his football buddies when his house is too small?

Well, with a handy connection to MGM and some sweet-talkin’ to Norma Shearer, Hollywood stars of the 1930’s come out to help celebrate in “The Christmas Party” (1931)!

You’ll see a young Clark Gable serving chow and chatter to the team.

Handsome Ramon Novarro is hailed on the fly to bring tea and napkins.

Santa visits the children in the form of comedian “The Schnoz” Jimmy Durante.

Lionel Barrymore makes the rounds with warm biscuits for all the “whippersnappers.”

Join MGM’s party to catch even more Hollywood stars celebrating Christmas with Jackie!

“Dr. Jekyll – Loved by beautiful women, sought by society. Mr. Hyde – fiend and criminal.”

Fredric March in Paramount’s 1931 “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”

Beware, people of London! 

Fredric March mesmerizes us as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in a page from “Paramount’s 20th Birthday Jubilee Announcements of 1931.” A perfect Oscar-winning monster movie to watch this Halloween. Complete with marvelous make-up transitions and fearful co-stars, Miriam Hopkins and Rose Hobart. 

Did you know that this was the only version in which Jekyll’s name is pronounced correctly as “Jee-kall”? More trivia revealed on IMDb’s site.
