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.

In my own life, my parents made sacrifices that I didn’t fully realize or […]
