What Does a Film Have to Have to Be Classified as a "Western?"

Started by Tim in Classic Action. Last reply by M.T. Fisher on Saturday. 17 Replies

Sounds like a dumb question, but it really isn't...does it have to fall within a theorectical limited period of time? Is it a matter of the location? Does it have to have stetson hats, six-shooters and/or horses? Or is it a matter of thematic…Continue

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 Saturday. 10 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

Doris Day - Farewell to a blazing talent and eternal star

Posted by Edward Gielty on May 13, 2019 at 3:36pm 0 Comments

Just to say that this really is the end of an era. An enduring beauty and a presence that just burned through the screen, plus a wonderful and seductive voice that made her own any song she performed. "Calamity Jane" will always be the perfect testament to her tomboyish charm, musical pedigree and bouncy personality but she also more than held her own in many dramas. RIP Doris - you will always be our not-so-Secret Love.

I’m pleased to announce that the audio edition of my one-woman play, IDA: THE LAST LUPINO is now available for download via, Amazon and iTunes.


Kathleen Godwin delivers a powerful performance as Ida Lupino in the drama, which joins the star of HIGH SIERRA, THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT and ROAD HOUSE; director of THE HITCH-HIKER, as well as other films, in 1983 when she is living alone in her decaying Brentwood home as a virtual hermit, lamenting the break-up of her marriage to actor Howard Duff.


Enhanced with music and sound effects, IDA: THE LAST LUPINO is a vivid, often witty, portrait of a woman who conquered a man's world.…

I am pleased to announce the publication of DICK POWELL, the 20th play in THE HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS Collection.
Dick Powell made a career of reinventing himself.
Born in Arkansas, the young tenor played horn, banjo and sang with various dance bands and orchestras in Pittsburgh and elsewhere before he was brought to Hollywood where he sang opposite Ruby Keeler and others in such classic Busby Berkeley musicals as 42ND STREET, FOOTLIGHT PARADE, GOLD DIGGERS OF 1935 and the Al Jolson film, WONDER BAR.

I just saw Bullitt on the big screen, and it was naturally, a wow.  The car chase actually made me a tad ill, seeing them go over the hills of San Francisco that way in the cinema.  (McQueen's granddaughter said the same thing happened to her.)  And it's so nice seeing a good cop show in the movies where there isn't one computer being used.  Just good police work.

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 […]
