About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I have been a classics fan basically my entire life, ever since I can remember paying any real particular attention to movies... since about 6 or 7. My family loved them, and that helped of course. Some of my relatives had worked in the industry during the golden age, and so I would also get to hear stories about their experiences from time to time.
Aside from classic movies, I love animals (I have two sweet cats), nature, photography, music, computers, and many things silly and/or retro such as Felix the Cat and collecting vintage compacts. I am a bit of a true nonconformist (as opposed to the stereotypical view of a nonconformist) and a vegetarian, and my favourite colour is green (though that doesn't relate to the vegetarian part).
Heylo LM. haha. Ok, you can call me anything you'd like. ;)
Yes, I've seen the 1925 film of "The Wizard of Oz". It has a different spin on the story a bit, but still has that wonderful magical presence to it. Well, my week is alright so far. I can't really complain. ;)

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 […]
