About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Well, I'm a 24 years old ecuadorian girl, marketing engineer but working as a videogame designer haha weird huh?
My story on how I got hooked on classic movies?? I'll tell you: I wasn't attracted to the golden age of hollywood (good Lord last year I went to LA and I didn't like classic movies yet so I didn't pay attention to all the wonderful stuff there was about Clark, aaaaahhhh i want to kick myself!!!) until one day i got my wisdom teeth pulled out, so I had license from work and I was at home very very bored, so I went through my mom's movies to see what I could find.. and I found something allright, I found Gone with the Wind. I remember my mom's words "watch the movie, it's amazing!" and my words "naaah boring!". So anyways, I gave it a shot, eitherway I had nothing to lose. I'M SO GLAD I DID! I fell in love with Rhett, it was like I discovered a whole new world of movies! So after this one I started to buy A LOT of Clark's movies (at least the ones I could find here, it's soooo hard to find them in Ecuador) and became addicted to him haha! After that, I started to buy classic movies and I love them. I was so wrong about this "old boring movies" I was a fool I know...
So that's my story :P I just bought "The african queen" with Bogart and Hepburn, I can't wait to watch it! I need to see "No man of her own" reaaaaally bad, I can't find it here though :(

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 […]
