Murder, Morphine, and Madness!

This posting is for all you out there that still enjoy reading a good murder mystery! No too long ago I was watching TCM and I believe they were featuring "Gays in Hollywood". There were two guests hosts, one of them was William J. Mann. His book "Tinseltown; Murder, Morphine and, Madness At The Dawn Of Hollywood" was mentioned. It is based on the murder of William Desmond Taylor, his life in Hollywood, but really Hollywood during that time of the 1920's. Mabel Normand, Mary Miles Minter,…See More

"Rosie, I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed it... and your son! I had a choir teacher in high school who, oddly enough, raved about Rear Window. I say this because he loved the fact that there was no music to speak of in the movie at least none…"

Maureen commented on Gem Data's blog post What are your TOP five movies of all time?
"Just five.....I don't know that I can only keep my list to five. I can tell you one of my top 5, maybe number 1 is Rear Window. First of all one of Alfred Hitchcock's best, the glamorous and the grizzly! The entire movie taking place in…"

A Pioneer

When I found TCM I felt as though I had come home. Robert Osbourne seemed to embody the essence of the GAOH, grace, style and a true gentleman. His knowledge about the movies, the stars, the interactions, the industry was amazing. When you watched him interview an actor it was more of a conversation than an interview. He had an ease and warmth that appeared to make everyone feel at home.I love Ben Mankiewicz and having a "Hollywood family" still carry the torch in the business is awesome.No one…See More

Ralph Barton and Charlie Chaplin in the Jazz Age

Charlie Chaplin—an icon of cinema—flirted with the fine arts. He sketched on occasion, and he could converse about art and music in social situations, but his strongest connection to the world of art was his friendship with illustrator Ralph Barton. During the 1920s, Barton was a highly successful caricaturist and cartoonist, whose work was elevated […]

Who Has The Last Laugh (1924)?

To view The Last Laugh click here. Nowadays when I talk with my friends about F.W. Murnau (1888 – 1931) they are usually familiar with Nosferatu (1922) or Sunrise (1927). Between those two classics is another masterpiece released in 1924 that is usually overlooked, and one that Georges Sadoul, in his Dictionary of Film Makers […]

A Mother’s Sacrifice in Stella Dallas (’37)

To view Stella Dallas click here. Children rarely understand the sacrifices their parents make for them. Nor should they. The difficult decisions and problems that parents often have to deal with aren’t ones that should be the concerns of a child. In my own life, my parents made sacrifices that I didn’t fully realize or […]
