About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I grew up watching classic movies on T.V. and never dreamed of ever being able to see all of the one's that I'd read about, but with the creation of vhs and dvd, I'm not only able to see these great films but am also able to own them! It's exciting to discover films that were made back in the 30's and 40's and to seek them out on vhs, dvd or if I'm lucky, on blu-ray. I really enjoy collecting movies on vhs, dvd and blu-ray and also classic movie posters, books and various movie collectibles.
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( email@example.com ) for the full details. Have a nice day Thanks God bless.
I know what it's like to get so busy you forget about the things you love to do. I'm glad you've made a little time for the movies lately. Sometimes I watch movies in the background while working, making dinner, cleaning, whatever. Are you going to find some time tomorrow? TCM is having a patriotic lineup in honor of the 4th. But I think I might watch one of those WWII variety shows tomorrow, from my collection. Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
Thanks for the friend request. I see you're a Carole Lombard fan and a Jean Harlow fan, both actresses I love. I am in the process of collecting Carole Lombard's films too. I have Carole Lombard - The Glamour Collection, and would dearly love to get Carole Lombard in The Thirties, but on Amazon a tad expensive at $57.50, so shall wait till there's a sale or until a time when I'm more financial!
I hope you enjoy your visits to The Golden Age of Hollywood site. I've been a member since 2009, and wouldn't know life without popping in briefly most days, whether it just be to take my turns in the games Connect The Stars and The Game I Play, or to add a review of a movie I've seen or chat with people about movies. Many discussion groups to join too.

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 […]
