Midge commented on M.T. Fisher's blog post Bullitt
"The car chase scene is amusing to anyone familiar with San Francisco.  You can't turn a corner in one neighborhood and in the next shot, you're three miles away in a completely different part of town! But it looks good in the movie."

Midge replied to Rosie Sayer's discussion What are your favorite Christmas movies?
"My favorites are "It's a Wonderful Life," (1946) "Miracle on 34th Street" (1947) and "White Christmas" (1954), but only for the musical numbers. Danny Kaye made Bing Crosby break up so much during the…"

"Kevin, I am awfully sorry to hear this. Many internet forums seem to be struggling these days due to the popularity of mobile social apps like Twitter and Facebook. Perhaps their time has passed. It sure was fun while it lasted, though. Please…"

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!

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 […]
