15 Unpublished Photos of Hanna-Barbera Making ‘The Flintstones’

In November 1960, LIFE magazine published an article about the breakout success of Hanna-Barbera’s seminal primetime animated series The Flintstones. The piece featured three photos of the studio, but what they didn’t publish is even more amazing. Photographer Allan Grant took 850 photographs for the magazine assignment, documenting every part of the studio’s operations. Remarkably, all of those photos are now available to…See More

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

Started by Patti in Other Movie Topics. Last reply by Alyssa yesterday. 146 Replies

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 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 cry at movies, as a rule, though I plead guilty to sobbing through the last 10 minutes of The Bridges of Madison County. I'm a hopeless romantic, what can I say?Have any of you ever choked up, even a little bit, at one of your favorite…Continue

Looking for a Good Cat Name (classic film-related)

Started by Rosie Sayer in Social Club. Last reply by Rosie Sayer Jun 23. 36 Replies

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

What was the last "classic" movie you watched?

Started by Ktrek in Other Movie Topics. Last reply by Alyssa Jun 22. 302 Replies

I thought I would add a thread to discuss the last "classic"  movie you watched. As opposed to just any movie. I might start a thread for modern films later. I would prefer that you post more than just a title.KevinContinue

    The Malaise of the Ghetto: LA HAINE (1995)

    It’s about a society on its way down. And as it falls, it keeps telling itself: “So far so good… So far so good… So far so good.” It’s not how you fall that matters. It’s how you land. – LA HAINE (1995) In light of recent events at home and abroad it seems strangely […]

    Cut to the Plot: The Cinematic Chase

    It can be rather easily argued that the chase epitomizes the cinema.  It is action as story.  The dramatic conflict is easily defined between the chaser and the one being chased as simple pursuit.   One party is relentlessly driving towards another party in the hopes of dramatic resolution.  Any good chase has a beginning, […]

    Columbia Crime: The Whistler

    The Whistler…was one of the most terrifying screenplays I’d ever read. A little after midnight, I called [Harry] Cohn at home. ‘It’s horrific, Mr. Cohn…. Exactly what I’ve been waiting for…it’ll scare the shit out of audiences.’ -William Castle The Museum of Modern Art has been transformed into a den of sin over the past […]

    Meet Toby Wing, the Darling of the Photographers

    If I could go one day without hearing about the dreaded Kardashians, I would be thrilled. The most superficial of celebrities, they are famous for being famous, with no body of work to support their fame. How could this gaggle of girls with no discernable talents be the center of media attention? Recently, while researching […]

    Classic Movies will Never Change but Everything New? Maybe.*

    We are now just a tad under three years removed from the 40th anniversary of the release of Star Wars in 1977.  In the thirty seven years since, it has spawned sequels, prequels, animated series, ripoffs, homages, and one very special holiday show.  Thirty seven years prior to Star Wars, the most popular film of […]
