Is anyone still burning classic movie DVDs off of TV, and how?

Started by Rosie Sayer in DVD/Video. Last reply by Rosie Sayer on Sunday. 6 Replies

It seems increasingly difficult nowadays to burn TV content to DVD due to copy protections. I was wondering if anyone is still doing this, and if so, from what channels, and using what sort of technology? I'd like to save to permanent storage some…Continue

DUMB IDEA!

Posted by Michael B. Druxman on August 9, 2018 at 7:37am 0 Comments

The Oscars are now going to add a new category, "Most Popular Picture".

DUMB IDEA!

The Oscars are supposed to honor the "Best Picture," not the "Most Popular".

The "Most Popular" Picture is determined by the box-office gross. Why does the Academy have to vote on that?

Did you know?

Did you know that you can customize the look of your own personal page on GAOH? All you need to do is click the link on the left side of your personal page to access the customize area. If you want to create your own head banner the size is 955 X 200. You can change color and backgrounds etc. You might actually find it fun to experiment and if you want a CSS script to add to the "Advanced" section that will remove the website name and hide it so only your banner shows I can provide that to you as well. If you have never looked at my personal page you can get an idea of what you can do:

The Story of the Code Through Classical Song at Hollywood and Western

Posted by Tiffany Brannan on June 12, 2018 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

At 3 PM on July 15, the Code is returning to its first home, 5504 Hollywood Boulevard!

This address is the location of the Hollywood and Western Building, which was constructed in 1928 by Louis B. Mayer for the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA). On July 15, 1934, an amendment was put in place which made a Seal of Approval from the Production Code Administration (PCA) necessary for the release of every American movie. That Sunday was the beginning of the Code era, the Golden Era of Hollywood. The PCA was located on the fourth floor of the Hollywood and Western Building. In that beautiful art deco building, seven men toiled tirelessly to make sure that all movies were “reasonably acceptable to reasonable people.”

BRODERICK CRAWFORD: A Play in Two Acts

Posted by Michael B. Druxman on April 28, 2018 at 10:49am 0 Comments

I am pleased to announce that my play, BRODERICK CRAWFORD, is now available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions. (The 2 editions probably won't be "married" on Amazon for about 24 hours, so if you want the Kindle, you'll have to look it up separately.)
 
BRODERICK CRAWFORD is a 3 character play. Aside from Brod, who was a personal friend, the other 2 characters are the spirits of his parents, vaudevillians Lester Crawford and Helen Broderick.
 
Broderick Crawford is certainly best remembered for his Oscar-winning performance in ALL THE KING'S MEN, BORN YESTERDAY and…

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
