Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(  ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Kate Kwame.

I just wrote a review of the Norman Taurog book for my movie blog:


I thought it was very interesting and informative. What got my interest was Jackie Cooper's trouble at Notre Dame--I was born in South Bend and I've lived in this area for most of my life.

Michael, it would be great if you could send me a link to your new book. My email is By the way....did you know that this Saturday night on Me TV, Svengoolie is showing "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man"?

Hello Michael and welcome to The Golden Age of Hollywood! What a privilege to have you join our humble little corner of the web. I always enjoyed your father's performances as Lestrade and his many other roles. He was a great character actor alongside many others, without whom the classic films could never been made. Thanks for joining and I hope you enjoy the site. It would be cool if you maybe you could post some blogs about your father and his many roles.

To view The Three Musketeers click here. To view The Four Musketeers click here. Director Richard Lester was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but he made some of the best British films of the 1960s. Inspired by Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati, he developed an acute funny bone and an appreciation of the absurd that allowed […]

Black Jesus (1968) Isn’t What You Think It Is

To view Black Jesus click here. I’d honestly be shocked if more than a handful of people around here have heard of Black Jesus (1968) before today. Barely released in American theaters by one-shot outfit Plaza Pictures and never given a legitimate home video release (ignore the bootleg DVDs), this is a rough, tough and […]

Summer Daze: Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953)

To view Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday click here. The first screen appearance of Jacques Tati’s Hulot character is inside of a car: a clattering, jittering wreck making its way to a seaside hotel in Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953). Tati cuts from the sound of a train horn to the pitter-putter of Hulot’s gasping car engine as it turns the corner […]
