Barton MacLane is a memorable guy. Large, gruff, and generally projecting a face that makes you assume that his stomach has been sour for several hours, MacLane was a staple tough guy in Hollywood films and television for five decades. Yes, he played college football, but did you also know that he could play the violin? Regardless of how you might know Barton MacLane, the one thing I know for sure is that he was never miscast in a Bogie film. Prison Guard or Conman. MacLane elevated every film he starred in with his commanding presence and his well-honed acting skills.

Bette Davis is always worth spending an evening with! Across the Pacific — Greenstreet plays the cagey Dr. Lorenz , a passenger who seems to have untoward intentions as he shares an oceanic voyage with Bogart and Mary Astor. What I really loved about Greenstreet here is that his character is an incredibly wealthy world traveler, meaning Greenstreet is dressed to the nines and drenched with a slightly more authentic sophistication than he was in The Maltese Falcon.

You can find the rest of the posts here. Born and raised in Quincy, Illinois, Mary Astor was groomed by her parents from a very early age to be a star.
It only took a series of beauty pageants to get her noticed by a Hollywood agent who signed her to a contract that had her doing bit parts in silent films starting at the age of only fourteen. After slowly building up to a solid and very successful career, Astor seemed to peak in when she won an Oscar for her role in The Great Lie , the same year that she appeared in the cinema classic The Maltese Falcon alongside of Humphrey Bogart.
What I loved about her two films with Bogart was the way that she was able to distinguish two characters that, at first glance, seem to share so much in common. One is a sultry, dangerous, femme fatale. And to be honest, this whole write up is just an excuse to post the pic below from Across the Pacific. If I ever bumped into that gal on a boat and the only other man aboard was Sydney Greenstreet — well, it quickly becomes apparent how easily someone could fall for Astor in real life or on screen.

After re-watching this film for the umpteenth time, I have to say that it certainly seems to be true and it works well for her performance.
