An interesting picture of the Warners Theatre back in '28 hardly on the grand scale as one might expect, I'd be interested to know what the interior looked like.

The Warner Bros. Hollywood, 6433 Hollywood Blvd. --
A 1928 preview of the theatre's entrance, almost ready to open. Note the guys working on that left storefront. It's a photo in the Los Angeles Public Library collection: http://jpg2.lapl.org/theater1/00014814.jpg

Here is a picture of a theater that no longer exists. It was located in Yucaipa, the town next door to the town I live in. The picture was taken in 1947. It isn't the best copy; I had to project it from one source onto the computer and then snap a pic with my cell phone. Aw, shucks. Here it is.

Man’s Castle 1933

Embarrassed to say but I just watched Frank Borzage’s Man’s Castle for the first time this week. Wow, what a movie! Spencer Tracy and Loretta Young are both excellent but the way the movie plows headlong into the plight of desperate people during the despression is remarkable. There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]

How’s It Going, Everybody?

Every now and then I stop back in to look at some of the updated comments and I’m surprised, and gladdened, to see that there still are comments! Now, I no longer get paid to post here so this is just a “Hi, how are you?” to everyone who still comments here (so don’t freak […]
