About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
My love of old movies started when I was in my 20's. I was exposed to several of the classics by my mother, but it really did not take hold until much later. My interest in them grows as I get older. I also love Big Band/Swing music, which is a rarity - especially for someone my age. I usually get people rolling their eyes at my music at work (I listen to it through XMRadio and The1920snetwork.com) I have two wonderful children and a little dog named "Max". I really enjoy spending time with my children. When not busy with the kids I have gotten into gardening, and have had some success with a bluebird house in my backyard. I also am working on home improvement, e.g. painting, landscaping.

When I looked at it, it was not a lobby card at all but rather a 16mm print of the movie. I did not bid on it but this got the wheels spinning about how fun it might be to watch a movie on a projector from an old print. Does anyone else do this? Does anyone have any good sources for movies or a projector? Any ideas would be greatly… Continue

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 […]
