About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I love old movies. I abhor colorization...no movie should be bastardized that way. I enjoy writing although I have little to no time for it. I could watch old What's My Line, To Tell the Truth, I've Got a Secret, and The Name's the Same episodes for hours. I think I was born out of my era!

Birthday Ruminations

Posted on August 16, 2009 at 10:15pm 0 Comments

In less than 2 hours I will be 48 years old. I was thinking about those with whom I share a birthday...my favorites being Maureen O'Hara and Mae West. They are/were both immensely talented women who light up the screen at every turn. If I could look like anyone, I would LOVE to look like Maureen O'Hara...beautiful red hair and eyes that sparkle...WOW! But I do share a soul with Mae West...I have a friend who tells me I have two distinct personalities...when I am in a flirty, sensuous mood, I… Continue

Charles Durning

I just finished watching an episode of NCIS with Charles Durning. Now that is one UNDERappreciated actor which a capital UNDER! He can just rip the heart right out of you AND make you laugh at the same time. He played a medal of honor winner who thinks he murdered his friend on Iwo Jima. Given Mr. Durning's WWII service on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day...I would say he is more than qualified to identify with that sort of role. I remember watching him talk about D-Day on a PBS… Continue

Jimmy Stewart

I was SO proud to see that Brigadier General James M. Stewart, USAFR, was enshrined in the National Aviation Hall of Fame this weekend. If anyone deserves that honor, it is he. As the blurb about him says, when he went into the service, he was already a Princeton graduate AND an Academy Award-winning actor...in my mind, that should be capitalized. He was an ACTOR. GOOD for Jimmy!…

Welcome! I agree that most colorization out there ruins the visual effect - I see this way too much in photos! With so much Photoshop being used by novices who haven't a clue as to the true colors of the decade or the star, I lovingly look upon the beautiful hand-tinting done at the time of release...I have a vast collection on my page - mostly black and white or original color...hope you will stop by! See you around!

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. 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 […]
