Irish-themed Movies

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'm kind of surprised that the "Social Club" area doesn't get used more. I'm a member on several other boards that are subject driven but the social areas are the places where I get to know members more personally.So, I thought I'd open a discussion…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

Apparently, most millennials have never seen a classic movie. Pretty sad really, but not surprising. Check out this article:

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)

Posted by Stephen Butler on August 12, 2017 at 8:27am 0 Comments

When you think of musicals, you think of song, dance, comedy; you think of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.  They are, perhaps, the definitive musical film stars.  Their films set the standard for musicals after the huge rush of the genre at the dawn of the sound era.  Astaire and Rogers made ten pictures together; nine were at RKO between 1933 and 1939, while a tenth was made at MGM in 1949 after Judy Garland was forced out of The Barkleys of Broadway.  Top Hat was…

Ralph Barton and Charlie Chaplin in the Jazz Age

Charlie Chaplin—an icon of cinema—flirted with the fine arts. He sketched on occasion, and he could converse about art and music in social situations, but his strongest connection to the world of art was his friendship with illustrator Ralph Barton. During the 1920s, Barton was a highly successful caricaturist and cartoonist, whose work was elevated […]

Who Has The Last Laugh (1924)?

To view The Last Laugh click here. Nowadays when I talk with my friends about F.W. Murnau (1888 – 1931) they are usually familiar with Nosferatu (1922) or Sunrise (1927). Between those two classics is another masterpiece released in 1924 that is usually overlooked, and one that Georges Sadoul, in his Dictionary of Film Makers […]

A Mother’s Sacrifice in Stella Dallas (’37)

To view Stella Dallas click here. Children rarely understand the sacrifices their parents make for them. Nor should they. The difficult decisions and problems that parents often have to deal with aren’t ones that should be the concerns of a child. In my own life, my parents made sacrifices that I didn’t fully realize or […]
