I am a member of about 40 some odd groups. I have started several groups, but I've neglected them pretty much. Been too busy elsewhere. Some of the groups I have are:
KARLOFF, Classic Movie Magazines, Celebrity Recipes, Mr. Laurel and…"
""Red River" with John Wayne, Montgomery Clift, Walter Brennan, Joanne Dru, with John Ireland - sits at the top of my concept of classic westerns. The performances were unavoidably strong, The story-line built a spine that never bowed, and…"
"I agree...Witness is indeed a great film which I enjoyed it very much, but Im afraid I have a weakness for the mysterious and exotic touch of the Von Sternberg... and that might be the weakness of the film alltogether, that she isnt the usual…"

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Retired Aerospace engineer who has an extensive movie library and is addicted to Rex Stout Nero Wolfe mysteries and Arrogant Bastard ale - lovely stuff. I have pubished a novel and am currently devising a screenplay out of it.
i've just seen THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES today, and what a picture! i too have Fredric March as a favorite actor of mine, having seen him in WE LIVE AGAIN and THE MAN IN THE GRAY FLANNEL SUIT. i've been trying to find THE ADVENTURES OF MARK TWAIN, whereas March truly resembles him greatly. and i too am a great fan of Adventure films! :-)
Out of the Past is my favorite movie; Robert Mitchum my favorite actor. After reading so many books about him I find him a very complex man. Not always the nicest guy but a lot of his bravado was to hide his real feelings I believe. He didn't think a "real" man should be an actor; always called himself an actress. His interview with Dick Cavett reveals a little of his real self. Gloria
Gary, I just joined the group. Read your statements about Macao. I wanted to jump into the screen and grab Robert Mitchum! He is my all time favorite. what an intersting and comlex man. I've read everything I can get my hands on about him. Love your photos. Gloria

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 […]
