Great Entertainers

They were more than movie actors, they also conquered the stage, the airwaves and the jukeboxes. They were all round musical performers like Sinatra, Jolson, Garland, Crosby, Astaire, Armstrong, Fitzgerald : they were the Great Entertainers.

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Hi everyone. I founded the Golden Age of Hollywood messageboard a few years ago and I'm delighted to support this great idea for a social network.

I'm 36 and have been a fan of classic movies for about a quarter of a century. My fave genres are comedies and musicals though I like most films (to varying degrees) made before 1960, some after that date too.

When I have time I would love to chat away about movies. Thanks Kevin for setting this up.

Take care,

Derek

On Dave Kehr and “Movies That Mattered”

When I was in the film program at Northwestern University in Chicago, my peers and I were required to read the works of Walter Benjamin, John Berger, Michel Foucault and even Freud, Jung and Marx. The idea was to apply their theories to the cinema to better understand how film worked, or how it related […]

Making the Leap: Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Talkies

To view The Private Life of Don Juan click here. Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. made his last movie in 1934. The Private Life of Don Juan was, quite accidentally, a fitting farewell to one of the first megastars of the movie industry. It wasn’t clear while filming it that it would be Fairbanks’ last movie but […]
