About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Working in a shipping agency in the Port of Rouen, France, in the beautiful Normandie, 100 miles from the D Day beaches. Spending my precious time watching and looking for rare and early movies from silent era. Plenty of them are not on the DVD market and pretty hard to find. Collecting comics and books on my favorite movie stars, got almost 40 books dedicated to Greta Garbo on shelves....

Thank you for the kind words. After Greta passed away in NYC in 1990 her personal items were displayed at Sotherby's before the auction. I got that special chance to see these items and also got to own the book of the collection. I treasure this book and that memory alot. I tried a few times to look for her outside of her NY apartment but was not lucky to get that chance. I still find myself watching her films in awe. Anyway hope you have a great weekend. Ricky.
