With St. Patrick's Day coming up, I'm thinking about movies with an Irish theme, but only feel-good movies, nothing too gritty. I've come up with the following so far: The Quiet Man  Little Nellie Kelly  Darby O'Gill and the Little People  Dancing…Continue

I don't know if it's just  my computer or if other people are experiencing this, but I can't post anything at GAOH without verifying that I'm "not a robot," and I have to click on multiple images. Are other people experiencing this?Continue

Murder, Morphine, and Madness!

Posted by Maureen on August 13, 2017 at 8:39am 0 Comments

This posting is for all you out there that still enjoy reading a good murder mystery! No too long ago I was watching TCM and I believe they were featuring "Gays in Hollywood". There were two guests hosts, one of them was William J. Mann. His book "Tinseltown; Murder, Morphine and, Madness At The Dawn Of Hollywood" was mentioned. It is based on the murder of William Desmond Taylor, his life in Hollywood, but really Hollywood during that time of the 1920's. Mabel…

Top Hat (1935)

Gone With the Wind (1939)

Posted by Stephen Butler on July 29, 2017 at 7:30am 4 Comments

Love it or loathe it, Gone With the Wind is one of the greatest pictures ever made.  And this, my friends, is a blog to match the film: huge, spectacular, colourful (British spellings again, I'm afraid!) and just a little corny in places.  I have used a variety of sources: the many books I have concerning its production, of which I will provide a list of recommended reading if anyone is interested, films that have been made about the production of GWTW (this is a common…
