I hope you'll stick around and let us know what you're watching, what you're learning, etc."
"Hello Rosie !
Thanks for the reply ! Gosh I haven't been on here in a VERY long time and by chance I saw your post while browsing. So weird as I realise that I joined this forum when I was 17 and I just started a French cinema and…"
"I just now saw your post from 2010! I don't know if you still visit GAOH, but I feel an obligation to post my opinion on this film for the sake of anyone who's curious.
The film has good reviews, but I was a little disappointed in it.…"
"I'm looking to replace my VHS of The Perfect Marriage with a DVD, since I no longer have a VHS player. I also posted this in the Movie Trading Post group, in case any of those members are still around."
"I don't know if its embarrassing but I suppose its a little awkward.
In It Happened One Night Colbert pretty much throws herself at Clark Gable (her words not mine) and he tells her to go back to bed. She turns back and bawls her eyes out on…"

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Hey everybody!! I'm 18 and have been a serious classic film lover for about 3 years.. My prefered classics are from the 30's and 40's and my favourite genre is probably comedy and muscical comedy. Lately I have been watching a variety of film genre, from Flynne and De Havilland, to Tyrone Power and Freddie Bartholemew. I post a lot on you tube and have made two videos so far which are on this site. My latest and most ardent obsession is with Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier, love those two...

His work throughout the 1950s, and specifically these four films, are not […]
