This is a place to connect with fans of classic movies and the stars that made them.
A companion thread to my "What's the Last DVD You Purchased?" thread. I thought it might be fun to discuss what we all are watching or have recently watched. Below will be my first post in this thread.KevinContinue
The other day a friend and I started this list, and maybe it was just my mood at the time, but I was laughing my head off, so I thought I would share this with my GAOH friends.I think it's fairly self-explanatory. Feel free to add your own ideas!The…Continue
Let's connect the stars! I saw this game on a classic film blog and thought it would be fun to play here. This is not a closed group...any and all of you are welcome to jump in at any time. The object is to connect two stars in as few "moves" as…Continue
I was watching a movie called Three Blind Mice, starring Loretta Young, and I thought, "Wait, I've run across this plot before."The basic plot is that 3 girls team up and pretend to be rich to try to land a rich husband for at least one of them.…Continue
I thought it might be fun to see what everyone is purchasing these days. And please do NOT feel like you need to limit your response to just classic films. As a matter of fact my last purchase was not a classic film at all but the latest Stargate…Continue
There have been a lot of classis film series made. These movies have the same main characters - usually, but not always, played by the same actors. I was wondering what some of your favorite movie series are.Continue
I'm pleased to see it would seem Universal Studios has released several classic movies on DVD. It's known as their "Universal Vault Series," and if you search this in amazon.com you'll have a long list of movies to choose from. Looks like I'll be…Continue
A few years back, I got these two movie posters while shopping at Ross. They're really nice posters. Not your usual paper posters, but more of composition board.The Gone with the Wind one has TM Turner Entertainment Co. & The Stephens Mitchell…Continue
Lana Turner speaking in my play, LANA & JOHNNY WERE LOVERS:
"Do you know that Barbara Stanwyck still refuses to talk to me? I’m not sure if it’s because she thinks I broke up her marriage to Bob Taylor, which I didn’t, or because I was a better villainess in THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE than she was in DOUBLE INDEMNITY."
Well, folks it looks like I'm going to have to throw in the towel and admit defeat. I just don't think I have the desire or energy to keep this site up and going anymore. If it was just my own interest waning I would deal with that and keep things going as long as the members were willing to foot the bill, but the activity level is at the lowest since the site has opened and I doubt I can raise enough fund to pay the bill this year. As much as it pains me to say so I really do think GAOH has had it's day in the sun and is now ready to retire.
If anyone is interested in taking over and trying to rejuvenate the site then you can contact me and I'll consider it but in all likelihood GAOH will be closing it's doors when the bill comes up in July. I just don't see a way forward from…Continue
The First In-Flight Movies Had a Live Orchestra! Soaring through the clouds in 1925, passengers on an Imperial Airways flight traveling over Germany were treated to a brand new novelty—one of the first in-flight movies. Even more astounding? The film had live orchestral accompaniment. But not in the way you’re probably thinking.
No, Imperial didn’t cram the Berlin Philharmonic into stowage, with cellos and cymbals in tow, so that they could awkwardly play along to a movie. This delightfully bizarre experiment in airplane entertainment was achieved with the help of a relatively new technology called radio. The sweeping sounds of a live orchestra were broadcast from the ground to accompany the 1925 silent film The…
