Midge commented on Maureen's blog post Murder, Morphine, and Madness!
"I have read both books and agree with everything you've said. The Barbara Stanwyck book is extremely detailed. As you mentioned, plowing through all the minutiae of her life is tough going even for a fan, but I thought Wilson did an excellent…"

Midge commented on Stephen Butler's blog post The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)
"Thank you for the wonderful essay, Stephen. I discovered The Adventures of Robin Hood relatively late in life but was instantly seduced by its wonderful cast, the glorious Technicolor cinematography and the sweeping, heroic score.…"

"Considering how tough it is to keep a message board going these days, I vote for keeping it open. Besides, I would never post anything that private here."

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I am a retired television studio technician, married with no children. I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since I was eight years old, with a brief stop in New York City. I have a collection of books on classic movies, mainly biographies. Other than movies, my interests include cooking, baking, non-fiction books and all kinds of music from ragtime to swing to opera.

Once, years ago when I was a secretary, I talked on the phone with Joan Crawford. She called the office and left a message for my boss. I remember that she had a lovely voice and was very gracious.

Congratulations, Midge! You were the top scorer on the Mother's Day quiz. I just posted the correct answers. Have you checked out the Screwball Comedies Quick ID quiz? It's on my blog.

Thanks, Rosie! That was lots of fun. I think you did a great job, because the quiz was "just right," -- not too easy, not too hard. I love quizzes! :-)

Hi, Midge! You did a great job on the Mother's Day quiz! I hoped people would know at least half of them, but I figured if they knew all but one or two then the quiz was too easy. It seems like I aimed just about right for our group. Thanks for participating!

On Dave Kehr and “Movies That Mattered”

When I was in the film program at Northwestern University in Chicago, my peers and I were required to read the works of Walter Benjamin, John Berger, Michel Foucault and even Freud, Jung and Marx. The idea was to apply their theories to the cinema to better understand how film worked, or how it related […]

The Private Life of Don Juan was, quite accidentally, a fitting farewell to one of the first megastars of the movie industry. It wasn’t clear while filming it that it would be Fairbanks’ last movie but […]

His work throughout the 1950s, and specifically these four films, are not […]
