"Olivia was one of the great beautys and one of the best actresses of all time. She made it look so easy. I like best that she didn't let her fame go to her head."

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I grew up watching old black and white movies, mainly from the 30's on forward and in my opinon from late 30's to the 60's was the real Golden Age of Movies. There has been a few good ones since but not many. That was when the acters were most adept at their craft. I used to sneek off to the movies when ever I got the chance.

The Man Ray Movie Challenge: Caesar and Cleopatra (1945)

To view Caesar and Cleopatra click here. In 1951, surrealist artist Man Ray, who was a fan of the cinema, quipped, “The worst films I have ever seen, the ones that put me to sleep, contain ten or fifteen marvelous minutes. The best films I have ever seen only contain ten or fifteen worthwhile ones.” […]

Shoot First, Die Later (1974)

To view Shoot First, Die Later click here. Here’s how I’d pitch Fernando Di Leo’s Shoot First, Die Later (1974) to any of my friends: If you’d like to see a gritty Italian crime movie that evokes The French Connection (1971) and surely influenced Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino, look no further than this grim […]
