About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
A few years ago my pastor and his son introduced me to their classic film collection and I was just amazed as to how good these movies were. I really enjoy watching classic movies. Back then, unlike today, the actors/actresses really had to rely on their talent to put a story across to the audience. And boy did they ever!! When talking with friends about classic movies I tell them, "Yes they're old movies, but it's like they're new to me". I have a collection now; and it's still growing.
