About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I was brought up on the old movies whenever they were available on 'regular' tv. Mostly, Shirley Temple, but after school they would have a great movie. As an adult, I didn't remember the names, but then came Turner Classic Movies and my longing was fulfilled! I college degrees are in history but one course in Film History and one in the History of the American Stage and my childhood love resurfaced. I searched for a school shwere I could get a doctorate in film history but nothing around the Nashville area was available, so I watch and watch instead. My history needs are fulfilled to a certain point through golden cinema. The rest I get through books, my second love, reading.

TCM's 31 days of Oscar

Posted on January 24, 2010 at 5:00pm 2 Comments

I'm glad it's Oscar time again as I love the films on TCM and it seems they show the very best during February. (Although many of my favorites may not have been Oscar nominee/winners), I still find the month so enjoyable. I seem to record lots during this season. Anyone else enjoy this?



Also, I know many of us don't watch the newer movies, but I can't help myself. Each Oscar night, I fix myself a few special snacks, cocktails, download a ballot form and make my predictions. I have a… Continue

Christmas movies

Posted on December 14, 2009 at 5:28pm 15 Comments

Is there anyone else out there who cannot get enough Classic Christmas movies during the holidays? Anything associated with Christmas and Classic movies, I am a sap for. I have them recorded and watch during the year, but seem to become obsessed during the season.

I'm not familiar with youtube at all. I just thought people posted home movies/shots or music videos on there. Had no idea there were actually movies on there that you could watch. I will definitely check it out. Thanks for the info.

Hi! Just noticed I overlooked your question about the availability of Margaret Sullavan movies- no, all her feature films are still "there", at a time every single one of them has been up on youtube- although some in bad quality. Sorry for not answering more quickly!

Hello Maria! Welcome to Margaret Sullavan's Group! We sure need a few more people around there!

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

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 […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

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 […]
