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.
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 Betty Blue click here. We might have a few NSFW films lurking around here at FilmStruck (1974′s Sweet Movie springs to mind right off the bat), but for my money, nothing you could watch here at this moment combines the beautiful and the shocking in quite the same way as Betty Blue (1986). […]
To view The Southerner click here. Jean Renoir considered The Southerner (1945) to be his “only work of a personal nature carried out in Hollywood.” Adapted from the National Book Award winning novel Hold Autumn in Your Hand, by George Sessions Perry, it follows a year in the life of a struggling Texas tenant farmer and his family. A lyrical portrait of do-it-yourself […]
To view Caesar and Cleopatra click here. In 1951, surrealist artist Man Ray, who was a fan of the cinema, quipped, “The worst films I have ever seen, the ones that put me to sleep, contain ten or fifteen marvelous minutes. The best films I have ever seen only contain ten or fifteen worthwhile ones.” […]
