About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Ah well, I'm Juliette and 19.

I adore classic movies and will watch most anything before about 1969, but after that I tend to use a bit more discretion. I find the pre-code era particularly fascinating, but also think a lot of post-Hays films were so great because they had to fly under the radar, you know?

I don't get TCM (which is dreadful-- really the bane of my existence), but I collect movies so I'm content for now to watch those. I'm always willing (and wanting) to discuss collecting or just movies in general.

Documentaries are grand as well-- I could watch them all day.

I'm set to begin college in August and double major in film and creative writing. Hopefully I can manage to get a job as a film historian and be able to who prattle on about the private life of Cary Grant on TCM or something. That'd be a dream. :)

Janine Basinger is my idol. Or role model...what have you. Swell, huh?

Blog?

Ah, well, I was unaware of this feature until today. I do already have a blog, Some Parade, at Blogspot. It'd be terribly hard to keep up with two, as it's difficult enough to try one, so if you'd like to read it...go right ahead-- visiotrs are more than welcome. Mainly I write about classic movies and actors, but the occasional original though pops up now and then.

Hello it's Lauren from umm, the blogspot! I forgot for a second - I'm tired! From grayscale. I saw this in your profile info and it looked neat so I signed up. I'm not sure what I will do from here though. Maybe I'll see if anyone has the movie Hat Check Girl.

I don't know whether you can play 33rpm vinyl albums but she recorded 2 albums called "Hits of the Blitz" recorded in brilliant stereo in the early 60's they are well worth looking for she sounds great, they may have been re-issued on cd but I'm not sure.

Hi Juliette, thanks for the nice comment, these are all british titles I have in my collection, there are more but the card on my camera couldn't take any more!, some of my fave british movies are Great Expectations, Oliver Twist, Went The Day Well, A Matter of Life and Death, Night Train To Munich, Yellow Canary (this is a much underated wartime film with a twist in the tale well worth watching), both of Vera Lynn's musicals are charming with some great songs,I don't know whether you know but Vera Lynn, now Dame Vera Lynn is a british entertainment legend she toured and sang to to the allied troups during WW2, broadcast over the BBC and went on for many years, now in her 90's she still makes public appearances bless her, "We'll Meet Again" is her theme tune always associated with her, somehow when ever I hear her voice talking or singing it seems to embody everything good about the british way of life I remember as a child in the 50's and long after to the present day, she's a national treasure.

The photo you post on my page, that was when Richard Thorpe "was" directing The Wizard Of Oz.

Hi Juliette, I like Judy best in her younger years, so it would be the 30's. I love those musical's she did with Mickey Rooney.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

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 […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

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 […]
