I love classic and goldern age cinema, foreign or American.
Hi - hmmm, well... what do I get to call you then? ;) CM, Cineman, or "Mr. Cineman27, sir!"? LOL!
My weekend was pretty nice, and so far the week's going well...
Speaking of the Wizard, a while back I rented the DVD of the early versions of it, including the 1925 silent with Oliver Hardy. It was very interesting, especially the documentary they included on L. Frank Baum... worth seeing I think just for that. If you haven't seen it, you might look out for it...
Hey Cineman! Glad to join your new group! I'm looking forward to you getting some good discussions going. I started one that I was hoping might get the ball going. I think there are many different things we can discuss about MGM. They made so many wonderful movies and had so many marvelous stars!
LM? Why you are quite forward, sir! (And you from the South, too, I see!) You can call me LadyM, and then after a couple of posts we'll see. LOL
The new year is definitely better than the end of the last one, that's for sure... hope it's going well for you, too...
Tracy/Hepburn were great (on and off screen)but, I prefer Bogart/Bacall. I think part of it is, while Tracy and Hepburn each had a lot of talent and personality, both Bogart and Bacall individually had that extra edge and charisma... and then putting them together? Perfect!

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 […]
