About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I think classic movies are wonderful little time capsules into the past that gives us a bird's eye view of culture, fashion, architecture, make-up, hair styles, and directing trends such as film noir. They also show case the extraordinary acting talents of the legendary silver screen stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood, the caliber of which we will never see again. Back in those days incredible performances, great story lines, and superb directing had to carry the picture because they did not have computer generated imagery as the main focus like they do today.
