About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I am an artist who loves classic movies, jazz age music, grapefruit juice and my two cats, though not necessarily in that order.
I loved your article about being a militant classic film fan! I can really relate. My own mother has the same attitude that your grandmother does. She was born in 1939. When I try to talk to her about it she just closes me down and says she's already seen that one or something else. She does not like B&W films at all. I'm not sure what the blockage is there but it's kind of weird. She also complains about all the cursing, nudity and violence in modern films and yet continues to watch them. She also hates to see a movie more than once because she already knows how it will turn out. She thinks I'm nuts that I have watched some of my favorite films 15 times or more. Another weird thing is that she buys DVDs of movies she has seen and enjoyed but if she doesn't like to watch movies more than once why does she do that? Weird behavior. Anyway, I gave up on my mom.
I know you said that you couldn't marry a guy that didn't love classic films too but you might have to let that one go. There just are not that many of us out here and I'm already taken! lol

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 […]
