About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I grew up watching the classics on my first TV, and a few later ones in the theatre. The classic mysteries, occasional westerns, and the screwball comedies are my favorites.

Welcome to the Golden Age of Hollywood! I have not been a member long, but I have found everyone to be very kind and very friendly. You might enjoy joining "A Game I Play," where everyone tries to name films in a certain category. We are working on films that are partially black and white and partially color right now.
By the way, I would like to invite you to join my blogathon, "The Great Breening Blogathon:" https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2017/09/07/extra-the-great-breening-blogathon/. It is celebrating the life and work of Joseph Breen, the enforcer of the Motion Picture Production Code between 1934 and 1954. As we honor his birthday, which is on October 14, we will be discussing and analyzing the Code era, breening films from other eras, and writing about our own ideas for classic movies. One doesn't have to agree with the Code and Mr. Breen to enjoy that! I hope you will do me the honor of joining. We could really use your talent!
