Profile Information

What are your favorite movies?
Too many favorites, man. It would take up a mighty long list. They are all Great motion pictures from the 1910s, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and a little bit of 70s that stand the test of time.
Who are your favorite stars?
I have a galaxy of favorite classic actors/actresses. But the standouts would have to be Gary Cooper and John Wayne, my two personal favorite actors and legends of Western films.
Who are your favorite directors?
Quite a few, notable ones being John Ford, Cecil B. Demille, John Huston and Alfred Hitchcock.
About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I've loved Classic films ever since I was thirteen. Movies made today just don't compare one bit. Given that I want to be a filmmaker, among other things, I wish to bring back the vintage style of making movies and even hope to make a handful of silent films.

Thanks Alex for accepting my friend request.  I may have named my Cat after Cary but he certainly does not share his traits or manners.

At 11:05am on March 7, 2014, Nina McFadden said…

Yes Cary is great and have enjoyed the majority of the films I've seen him in so far but there are a few I'm not keen on such as Arsenic and Old Lace which is just find too over the top.  Two of my 6 Cats a Brother and Sister are named Archie as in Archie Leach and Betsie as in Betsy Drake his 3rd wife.

Bagpipes are ok to listen to for about 15 minutes but any longer I start getting a headache LOL.

Hello Alex

Thank you for the welcome and will take a look around your Joel McCrea and Classic Adventure Films group.  By the way it's Miss McFadden but call me Nina.

:D

Hi Alex,

Great to hear from you, can we be a little less formal please call me Phil everyone else does. In regard to Colonel Blimp yes I've watched it several times over the years and as you say the colour is beautiful, apparently Technicolor films shot in the UK have a much softer edge than the states something about the daytime light we have here.

I grinned at your reference to 1776, as you know our empire is long gone, it's America's job to police the world today, I personally have unlimited time for the American people we have so much in common, several of your presidents have said that your country and mine have a special relationship, long may that link between you and us remain.

About british films here's a short list of movies I recommend: Went The Day Well, a fictional story of what could have happened had Germany invaded us, Reach For The Skies, The Yellow Canary, Oliver Twist (1948 version), Great Expectations and a later film Tiger Bay, Haley Mills first film a great story well acted and well worth a watch.

That's about it for now, let me know any comments you may have about the films I've listed, by the way The Yellow Canary has a very unexpected twist towards the of the film,

Take Care Buddy,

Cheers,

Phil.

Hi Alex, Great to hear from you again. I am, unfortunately, 'hooked' on Facebook. I go there every day, and spend an obscene amount of time there. But I love interacting with other people, and have joined numerous groups there to share interests of old movies, and nostalgia in general.

Take care, my friend, and I'll chat with you again soon.

Hi, Alex. It's good to hear from you again. It has been a while. I'm glad you liked the cowboy collage. I forget where I found it, but I knew I had to post it here for GAOH members to enjoy.

Hope to hear from you again soon.

What a coincidence.  I was writing an article for next week about Lawrence Olivier in "Clash of the Titans", and I commented that it wasn't one of his strongest performances during that time in his life.  So that got me thinking about other movies he made later in his life, to include "Boys from Brazil."  And I love (if that's the right word for a maniacal Nazi doctor) Gregory Peck in that film.  It was a role that we don't always see him in, being the evil doer.  As well he too was in a different phase of his career, playing more "mature" roles (as they say).

That would be great!  I've been a member on this site for a while, but only recently had time to start browsing around.

Hello there!

Thank you for the welcome.  BTW Debbie Reynolds came from my same city, El Paso.  I might have to check out her new book.  I saw her in person a few years ago at the film festival here, she is so cute!
