"Without Love is a grand movie. It's humorous, tender, and so delicate. Keenan Wynn is very funny in a supporting role."

Profile Information

What are your favorite movies?
My favorite movies are "Holiday" from 1938, "Broadway Serenade" from 1939, the Dr. Kildare movie series from 1938-1942, and "Night World" from 1932. I have a special affection for 1930s films, but I love all Code films sealed by Mr. Breen (between 1934 and 1954).
Who are your favorite stars?
My favorite actors are Lew Ayres, James Cagney, Nelson Eddy, Jack Lemmon, James Stewart, Bing Crosby, and Fred Astaire. My favorite actresses are Jeanette MacDonald, Laraine Day, Eleanor Powell, Kathryn Grayson, Mae Clarke, Audrey Hepburn, and Kathryn Hepburn.
Who are your favorite directors?
My favorite directors are George Cukor, W. S. Van Dyke, and Richard Quine. I like all directors who knew how to make brilliant, believable films without breaking the Code.
About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I have watched old movies all my life. I have never watched any movies except those from the Golden Era of Hollywood. My love for old movies eventually led me to discover the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 and the amazing impact it had on Hollywood and America. As I learned more about it, I began to love it more and more. In October of 2016, my sister and I started the Pure Entertainment Preservation Society, an organization specifically dedicated to bringing back the Code and celebrating old, beautiful entertainment. I love the 1930s very much. They are my favorite time in Hollywood history. I celebrate the whole true Code era, which is from 1934 to 1954, when Joseph I. Breen was the head of the Production Code Administration. He is my favorite film contributor because he was a moral, talented man who kept films clean and glorious for everyone. I have been deeply influenced by the Code era and old entertainment. I never leave the house without a vintage-style dress or blouse and a skirt plus a hat. I live my life like it is a Code film.

Ice Cream Soda and Soda Jerks at the Egyptian Theatre

Posted on September 22, 2017 at 2:20pm 4 Comments

                         Image result for pictures of the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood

The Egyptian Theatre had a wonderful event on that Sunday afternoon. It was a beautiful September day in Hollywood, and the courtyard was filled with people who were standing in line, waiting for ice cream sodas. As the soda jerk whipped up the colorful sodas, the patrons listened to the music of a ukulele player, who sang and Egyptian Theatre.jpg whistled to his own music. After an enjoyable hour and a half in the shaded, Egyptian style courtyard, the eager…

Hi Tiffany!

Thanks very much for your kind review. Sometimes when you're writing, and you're more and more motivated as you go along, the words flow and everything clicks. I'm looking forward to your link, and I'll be delighted to post it and plug it on my blog page.

Regarding Mr. Lloyd, among his short films HAUNTED SPOOKS is my favorite, in part because it was one of the few Lloyd films I had as a young man when I was collecting in 8mm. For his features, I'll make an unusual choice: THE CAT'S PAW. It lost money, and Lloyd thought it an interesting failure, largely because it was more a screwball than a slapstick comedy. It actually works quite well, even with the relative lack of sight gags. This could have been a good career transition for him, as he was too old to play the eager young man on his way up.
