"Carol Lynley has always been one of my favorite actresses from the 1960's and '70's.  I remember her most from her role in "The Poseidon Adventure," but also from "The Pleasure Seekers" and "The Shuttered…"

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.

Good Day,

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:(
katekwame01@gmail.com  ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.

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!

Hi Forrest. As you can tell I'm a huge John Ford fan....if you go to my blog site I've written a couple posts on some of his films.

Hi Forrest

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.

Have fun.  :D

Karen

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 […]

The Greatest Early Douglas Sirk: Lured (1947)

To view Lured click here. Writer and director Douglas Sirk is mainly known today for his exquisite technicolor melodramas, such as Magnificent Obsession (1954), All That Heaven Allows (1955), Written on the Wind (1956) and Imitation of Life (1959), his last feature-length film. His work throughout the 1950s, and specifically these four films, are not […]
