About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I am a lover of the Old Hollywood style..the glamor & grandeur of this illustrious period.
The actors and actresses of old captivated me from the moment I saw The Birds with Tippi Hedren.
The elegant cinematography and engaging storylines have consumed me every since and I shall remain a part of Its captive audience, forever.
I would never dream of forcing Basil's AB on you and I was only teasing you to give you, hopefully, a chuckle. :D
Yes,"Basi" was indeed a very great actor! and worked much on the stage where Hollywood found him and scooped him up - it always broike my hear to see him in the villain roles because he was actually much sweeter than many of his hero costars, if you look in his sensitive eyes you will see it! certainly he lived a more upstanding life than our respective mothers' good timing beau Errol Flynn! Oh his wicked, wicked ways! I have not seen this film you speak of! I don't even remember knowing about it but Bill and Basil in one movie together - why that is reason to barricade myself in my home for days and press replay over and over with the largest bowl of popcorn of my dreams and the cell phone turned off!
Oh you lucky little poodle, you!
I will have to look it up!
Happy house hunting. We are sweltering here in the Mediterranean. I cannot understand with this heat why so many people ever settled here! Or what it is they have against AC!
I did not know you were thinking of moving. That's a really big thing! I wish you the very best and I agree, decorating is very fun :) Please keep me posted. I will love to hear about your news. How I would love to watch a string of old movies tonight! There is something about Sunday nights that makes me very nostalgic, especially being so far from home. Cheers my friend.
Thanks Kimmy! I have not seen From the Terrace, but one day, though. I have so many movies in my Net Flix queue that I need to get around to seeing!! Thanks again for contributing to the Olivia/Joan blog! Fans are really enjoying the site.

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 […]
