About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Baby boomer. Became film buff watching GOLD CUP MATINEE,
and MOVIETIME USA, on Dayton, Ohio TV as a kid. Bought many books regarding cinema, 8mm 2-reelers, movie stills, film magazines. Fell in love with film women who were old enough to be my great grandmother in real life. I've had a few careers:
Keyline artist, copywriter, field photographer, graphics business partner, color separations sales rep, over-the-road truck driver. Hobbies are limited these days
to reading, collecting internet images, and producing a few
PhotoShop colorizations to share on GAOH. Army Reserves 1965-1971, Photography and Photo Lab.
Retired. Widowed 2010.
