"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.

Good, there are more to come! :-)

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!

Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody! I'm pretty busy on another board, but I will stop by as often as I can.

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 […]
