About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
My love of film history has progressed into collecting artifacts, costumes and props from the Golden Age. Been doing this for 25 years; started when nobody cared to preserve Hollywood's past. Now it is in fashion and expensive. Maybe, there will one day, be a real Museum dedicated to that history.
