Great to have a message from an Errol Flynn admirer. yes i wrote a play called Errol Flynn- A Question mark for a face. It's a 4 hander. I was interested to see that you write as well.
"You are correct, Irina - the movie was "Just A Gigolo" from 1978. Here's a small clip of her appearance; looks like her singing has been edited out but until I can recapture it, here's a fleeting glance of her from that…"
"Catherine what is this movie The man Who Fell To Earth? Was it Marlene's last performance? I've never heard of it, I thought her last one was Just a Gigolo?
Can you post a link to the clip of the scene?"
"I've seen all the westerns and think I'd have to pick The Man From Laramie. I like the fact that he's a bit of a drifter in this one - he's out on his own.
There's also the shocking moment when he's shot in the…"
I recently had the chance to see Ozu's I Flunked, But... which turned out to be a comedy that had touches of Harold Lloyd's The Freshman. It was set in a college with U.S. college iconography as part of the production design, and also a couple of characters wore distinctive Lloyd-style glasses.He was a much more iconic star than many seem to remember, his image really got around.See More

Today's song of the day on my black GAOH Jukebox is quite remarkable. An Irish songwriter pulling together, in Celtic folk, themes from early, raw Willie Nelson to Adam Clayton, Jr. on Elvis' Harley.
The Atlantic Ocean is often called the Pond. It's size is truly a state of mind. It all comes together here in this family, my 2nd cousins, Chicago band's 2002 release, "Galway to Graceland", as covered by Donnybrook.
I'll stake my life that I went by the Jimmy Stewart museum just today.But that isn't hard when you are an Indiana native.Here is a question for Christian Hayes that few others can answer.What actor played eight different roles in a western movie.He rode eleven different horses and three mules.Only two of his characters lived to ride off into the sunset.The actor was from Indiana,Pennsylvania...but it wasn't jimmy stewart.Only the man with the Custer golden mane and the narrow Eastwood face will know that answer.Mainly Christian Christo!
That's a very kind offer. You never know, I may take you up on it! I would love to make my way back to the States, particularly for a festival. I do in particular plan to visit the Jimmy Stewart museum when I get a chance...
I noticed you listed among your favourites, Kid Auto Races at Venice, Cal... I was just discussing last week how after many years of neglect they have restored the canals to their former glory.

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]
To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
