"Brilliantly acted by both Crawford and Huston.  Wow! The remake, Miss Sadie Thompson, with Rita Hayworth and Jose Ferrer, can't hold a candle to this one (in my opinion).  "

Here's the Character, Name the Movie (a game)

Let's see how well we classic film fans know the names of the characters of the films we watch.  It's easy to play.  Someone names a character (well-known or lesser known character, but the lesser knowns will, of course, be more challenging).  The…Continue

I'm getting a new cat, a Russian Blue. My previous cat, whom I gave to my son, is named Dashiell, sort of after Dashiell Hammett (who wrote The Thin Man and The Maltese Falcon), but also because I just liked the name. "Dash" also makes a good…Continue

Early Christmas for me!

Posted by Ktrek on November 12, 2014 at 1:33am 5 Comments

I know that this really falls more into "Don't Touch That Dial" group but I was excited to get this new limited edition of the Complete 1966 Batman box set. My wife recorded an unboxing video for me and I just wanted to share my excitement with my friends here at GAOH. I apologize in advance for any snafus (like me saying 1970s pop style when I mean 1960s) but that's what happens when you do things on the fly, and unfortunately you only have one go at it. So, here it is....

    10 Things You Might Not Know About Rod Taylor

    I’ve always liked Rod Taylor. The broad shouldered, barrel-chested actor with a booming voice is intimidating on screen but there’s a warmth in his smile that’s undeniably inviting. He was universally good in every film genre he took part in and made the challenging transition from serious drama to action movies, thrillers and romantic comedies […]

    The Mysterious Intruder, Serials, and Richard Dix

Presumed lost, Synthetic Sin (1929) and Why Be Good? (1929) were sitting in a Bologna archive, waiting for money and TLC to set them free. They received their […]

Film festivals of all types and sizes have proliferated in the last fifteen years to fill the void created by Hollywood for […]
