About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I've been a movie fan since age five...watching Charlie Chaplin films! Imagine my delight when I realized, as a teen, that you could actually buy them! I've been collecting films ever since...on 8mm, CED disc, VHS, and now DVD. For film collectors and fans, this is, in many ways, the best of times!

THE GREAT BREENING BLOGATHON!

Posted on October 14, 2017 at 7:05pm 1 Comment

Hi everyone! The big day is finally here!

Please be sure to pay a visit to the Pure Entertainment Preservation Society, run by our friend and fellow GAOH member, Tiffany Brannan.

Tiffany graciously accepted my contribution, an examination of DODSWORTH (1936); it was a bit out of the scope of the Breening Blogathon Rules, but I did relate it to the Production Code warnings about divorce and infidelity.

Be sure to read it and check out the other…

Greetings fellow film fans and GAOH members and visitors!

   There's an old saying that if you want something done, give it to the guy who's really busy - he finds time to get everything finished. Somehow, I feel this is directed at me...

   Anyway, today I decided to take the plunge, and add a blog post to my list of 10,000 top priorities. Yay me! I can't guarantee that I'll do this on a regular basis, but I'll give it a shot. My thought is, I will probably write about a…

Dear Mr. Ferry,

Thank you very much for sending your article to me early. I appreciate it. I read your article. It is very interesting and well-written. I will publish it on my website on Friday, the first day of the Blogathon. If you would like to publish it as a blog, perhaps you could post it here at the Golden Age of Hollywood on Monday with a link to the blogathon roster. I will send you the link in a few days.

Thank you so much for participating. I really appreciate it. By the way, in late September, I watched "Speedy" at the Egyptian Theatre. It was a marvelous experience. I posted an article about it here at this link. Right after I saw it, I got the sneaking suspicion that I had seen Mr. Lloyd before. I realized the next day that your profile picture is Harold Lloyd. What's your favorite movie with him?

Yours Hopefully,

Tiffany Brannan

William, how is the writing going? I have been trying to get some things accomplished while watching movies in the background. I must admit, the distraction makes me a bit less productive.

Hi William! Nice to see you stop by again. There's a lot going on lately so maybe you can find something that will bring you back more than once every few years? :)
