About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Sometimes watched films as a child & became enamored of Jean Harlow at the age of six. I heard a commercial on TV & when they said her name- I looked at the TV to find out who she was, I was so drawn to the name. Never could find anything about her until years later in the mid-60's. Never saw one of her films until the 70's. Always have been interested in films. If I hadn't been an illustrator/graphic designer I would have gone into films in some capacity.

One the topic of Frank Capra, TCM is showing Meet John Doe and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington back to back starting at 8 pm eastern time. I know these films well but won't be able to resist watching them again. I love them too much.
Hi Keith and welcome to The Golden Age of Hollywood! Interesting story about hearing Harlow's name and that you remember having become interested ar such a young age. I was exposed to a lot of films when I was a young lad because my mom was a movie lover and being single she didn't like to watch things alone. So at age 5 to 7 I watched a lot of things with her. I developed my love for sci-fi especially from those early impressionable years. I hope you enjoy the site.

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 […]
