This is a place to connect with fans of classic movies and the stars that made them.
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

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

Poor Little Rich Girl
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.
The Franchot Tone - Barbara Payton - Tom Neal Affair
The Lana Turner/Johnny Stompanato Relationship
These were certainly the 2 most sensational Hollywood scandals of the 1950s.
Come join us and talk about them.
Since I generally prefer to watch comedies, I have a lot of pre-Code melodramas/potboilers/morality tales in my collection that I still haven't watched. These were all gifts from friends. I have a huge backlog now, and today I was realizing what a treasure-trove it is.
I have several boxed sets of movies with dozens of Pre-Code movies starring great actors such as Loretta Young, Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, Fredric March, Claudette Colbert, Barbara Stanwyck, and on and on--all new to me!

Merrily We Go to Hell (Fredric March & Sylvia Sidney)
Hot Saturday (Cary Grant, Randolph Scott & Nancy Carroll)
Torch Singer (Claudette Colbert)
Search for Beauty (Ida…Continue

The Oscars are now going to add a new category, "Most Popular Picture".
The Oscars are supposed to honor the "Best Picture," not the "Most Popular".
The "Most Popular" Picture is determined by the box-office gross. Why does the Academy have to vote on that?
Did you know that you can customize the look of your own personal page on GAOH? All you need to do is click the link on the left side of your personal page to access the customize area. If you want to create your own head banner the size is 955 X 200. You can change color and backgrounds etc. You might actually find it fun to experiment and if you want a CSS script to add to the "Advanced" section that will remove the website name and hide it so only your banner shows I can provide that to you as well. If you have never looked at my personal page you can get an idea of what you can do:
