About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I'm 20 years old, interested in literature and the arts of all kinds. I love reading, watching films and going for long walks with my trusty ipod. Those are probably my favourite things to do. I would adore to be a costume designed for film and television some day - I'm a bit of a period costume geek! I'm also a devout Christian and sing at church every week which takes up a lot of my time and my focus! But I don't mind so much, I love to sing. I love to sing the blues as well as worship music.
Greetings, Faith! My, they couldn't have picked a finer name for you: one that brings to mind hope and perseverance in God. i think C. Aubrey Smith was one of the finest character actors ever, and amusing in every appearance he was in, right down to Cecil B. Demille's THE CRUSADES in an unusual role as a Religious Hermit/Martyr of christendom. And Faith, i have always admired England and it's people. The stiff upper lip attitude and unending pride that's kept your Island kingdom strong and graceful through the ages. I admire them greatly despite the fact we Americans over here fought to gain independence from your nation's empire in a crucial time in history known as the 1770s. I always find myself muttering in a theatrical British accent sometimes, inspired by the likes of Olivier or Howard or even one of my perennial favorites, Ronald Colman. 'nuff said! :-)

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 […]
