Roger's Photos

Here's a photo of myself holding a laserdisc jacket for a movie serial. I've had a bad habit of adopting virtually every video format over the years. Good thing I didn't get on board the HD-DVD format, huh? And so far I've avoided the Blu-Ray temptation, too...

My Maine Coon cat Shadow died on August 17...he was just over 9 years old. This means my one remaining cat is Cindy, seen here with me.

My Personal Update

Posted on April 26, 2013 at 10:04pm 3 Comments

I thought I'd do a little personal update here...I didn't know where else to put it. I did get some responses to a previous blog about myself so I'm hoping a few will find this interesting.

In a previous update, I mentioned I was going to have some laser eye surgery due to hemorrhaging in my eye. If I didn't mention it, the surgery was successful and I have decent vision through both eyes...though I still need glasses. It was laser surgery, not LASIK after all. I had also mentioned… Continue

Looking For A New TV

Posted on November 30, 2010 at 12:42am 10 Comments

I have had my current television (a 27-inch screen set from Sony) for a bit over a decade now. From time to time, I've thought about getting a new set...usually because I've always wished mine was just a bit larger. But then, I usually figure I can't afford it and end my thinking with "I'll just keep this one until it blows up". But now I've done something that's going to really require my buying a new set...I've ordered a Playstation 3. Of course, getting a new video game console doesn't…


"At The Movies" To End in August

Posted on March 25, 2010 at 9:49pm 0 Comments

This isn't really about Classic Hollywood but it is sort of the end of an era...the movie review TV program "At The Movies" has been canceled. It has gone through many incarnations beginning way back in the 1970s. I first became aware of it when it was airing as "Sneak Previews" on PBS...that was a bit over 30 years ago. The original hosts were Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert and they continued on it through several incarnations...from PBS into syndication...up until Gene's death (which I think was… Continue

An Update On Me

Posted on October 10, 2009 at 10:11am 4 Comments

I've posted blogs over at "The Golden Age of Television" recently about what's going on with me but haven't done it over here so I thought I'd post a short blog entry to let everyone know what's going on here. I have recently begun dialysis treatments...I had a surgery to put in a catheter in my shoulder where they take out blood and return it. I am undergoing treatments Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. They usually hook me up at about 11:00 in the morning and the process takes three and a half… Continue

My Eye Surgery

Posted on June 10, 2009 at 10:31pm 3 Comments

I wrote awhile back of my eye problems. I have diabetes and one fun side effect of that is I suffered a hemorrhage inside my right eye, filling it with blood which affected my vision. All I could see were shades of looking through very thick wax paper. I had eye surgery scheduled a couple of previous times but it got put off both times for different reasons. Last Thursday I finally was able to have it done. I actually had two doctors working on me at the same time. One doctor… Continue

Good mornin' g'mornin' Roger :-) Singing in the Rain is my #1 favorite. I have a collection of almost all Genes musicals and 2 of the dramatic movies. If you haven't seen it, try to find Inherit The Wind. That one, Gene was excellent in.
Hope all is well with you today :-)

I had never seen The Blackhand until the other day on TCM. I really enjoyed it. What is your favorite musical and drama that Gene did?

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 […]
