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!
