Who are your favorite stars?
Let me put it this way... my favourite movie stars, are the true movie stars.
Who are your favorite directors?
I do not have a favourite director. Although that is what I plan to be in the future - a director. Wish me luck.
About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
There is not much to say about my self. I'm just a guy stuck in the wrong time period, hoping in vain that someone will all of a sudden miraculously invent a time machine and send me back to a time when people had morals, class, and a hint of respect for one another.
The majority of 'entertainment' nowadays is complete and utter garbage. I'm so grateful I haven't been corrupted by todays society, and I one day hope Hollywood will go through some sort of renaissance and bring back the true art of film making.
Bring back the glory days, Hollywood!
I wish I was at a ballpark singing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" right now....in Indiana we are currently getting about a foot of snow!
I totally agree with you on the state of films these days....contemporary pop culture doesn't mean that much to me.
You are SO right about the window to the soul. Our mother wrote to all these stars from her day in the forties and asked for their favorite poems. What she got back was astounding. Some letters written in the stars' own hand along with their favorite poems. It's wild!! Boris Karloff, for example, loved one about flowers in crannies. Lucille Ball's was a classic. Gene Kelly's came along with such a personal note that we were floored. Anyway, our mother has passed, the stars have passed. It would be nice to think she got to meet them all in Heaven.
Oh I dreampt of that time machine way too many times. I have seen myself in a speak easy, I have seen myself during WW2, THE 50'S. I like watching old documentaries and somehow feeling what it felt like to be there. I'D TAKE THE WARS YEARS - The homefront here in the old USA.
Funny you should mention MANOS: HANDS OF FATE among your favorite films--that film frightens me, not so much because its scary (which it isn't), but because the 'Master' looks so much like myself years ago without my glasses that its, well...scary!

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 […]
