About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I collect all kinds of stuff. Movies, tv shows, radio shows, comics, pulps, and stuff related to owls.
My name is Tiffany Brannan. I don't think I have ever seen you online while I have been here. It is nice to meet you!
By the way, I would like to invite you to join my blogathon, "The Great Breening Blogathon:" https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2017/09/07/extra-the-great-breening-blogathon/. It is celebrating the life and work of Joseph Breen, the enforcer of the Motion Picture Production Code between 1934 and 1954. As we honor his birthday, which is on October 14, we will be discussing and analyzing the Code era, breening films from other eras, and writing about our own ideas for classic movies. One doesn't have to agree with the Code and Mr. Breen to enjoy that! I hope you will do me the honor of joining. We could really use your talent!

There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]
