An Introduction

Welcome to Let's Be Common, a classic film blog. This blog takes it's title from the song of the same name. You can watch Lupino Lane and Lillian Roth perform this number in Ernst Lubitsch's The Love Parade (1929), an exercise that I can highly recommend.

This blog will focus primarily on classic Hollywood films ranging from the early sound era through roughly 1950. Your humble hostess admits to a shocking lack of knowledge about silent films, foreign films, films made after 1950, Westerns, and musicals that do not involve either Ernst Lubitsch or Busby Berkeley. Some of these chasms will hopefully one day be filled, others will almost certainly never be.

I will slowly expand this as time and energy permit.
