"Tiffany, that link only takes me to a generic WordPress page that invites me to create my own WordPress site. I hope you can find a way to cross-post here, as I would love to read the full description."

"Bill, I look forward to reading your blog. I have watched Dodsworth a couple of times and found it interesting, well-acted, and, if I'm any judge of this, mature in its outlook. Hollywood likes to make all marriages happy ones, but sometimes…"

"Hi Ms. Brannan! Thank you very much for the kind words. I look forward to contributing more here on GAOH! I'm very glad that my choice of DODSWORTH passed the test. This is a really great film, and I encourage anyone who hasn't seen it to…"

"Dear Mr. Ferry, What an amusing article! You are quite a wit. To quote Linda Seton, played by Katharine Hepburn, from "Holiday" of 1938, "I think I like this man." Thank you so much for joining my blogathon. I really appreciate…"

PREVIEWS OF COMING ATTRACTIONS, or Tom Swift and His Electric Chair

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 particular film, genre,…See More

William Ferry replied to Rosieyposie7's discussion see JOLSONS JAZZ SINGER take2!
"THE JAZZ SINGER might best be called part-talking. There was a Vitaphone soundtrack of background music, occasional sound effects, some dubbed singing, and "live", or better yet, synchronized singing and some dialogue. I don't think…"

"This is very encouraging! It's fortunate that while the college/revival theater market is not what it was in the '60's or '70's (in terms of "classics" --- as defined by us), the home theater market has picked up…"

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!

One for all, and all for one!

To view The Three Musketeers click here. To view The Four Musketeers click here. Director Richard Lester was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but he directed some of the best British films of the 1960s. Inspired by Buster Keaton and Jacques Tati, he developed an acute funny bone and an appreciation of the absurd that allowed […]

Black Jesus (1968) Isn’t What You Think It Is

To view Black Jesus click here. I’d honestly be shocked if more than a handful of people around here have heard of Black Jesus (1968) before today. Barely released in American theaters by one-shot outfit Plaza Pictures and never given a legitimate home video release (ignore the bootleg DVDs), this is a rough, tough and […]

Summer Daze: Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953)

To view Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday click here. The first screen appearance of Jacques Tati’s Hulot character is inside of a car: a clattering, jittering wreck making its way to a seaside hotel in Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953). Tati cuts from the sound of a train horn to the pitter-putter of Hulot’s gasping car engine as it turns the corner […]
