RE: Picture Posting - PLEASE READ!

Dear members,

Increasingly I am seeing pictures posted that are unrelated to classic Hollywood. What I mean by classic would be pre-1960. The site is called The Golden Age of Hollywood for a reason. I would prefer that pictures, unless posted in member comment pages as member chit chat, reflect the purpose of the site. An exception to that would be posting…

TCM Alert "Dr Zhivago"

Or Omar Shariff puts up with a lot of Bolshevik.
I love movies with psychology or character - in the Tennessee Williams tradition.
This Boris Pasternak classic has everything - from soup to soap.

James Mitchell and Kathryn Grayson

With the recent passing of James Mitchell and the even more recent passing of Kathryn Grayson, I decided to spend some viewing time in a nostalgic look at both these musical stars. James was primarily a dancer and he was an extraordinary one, while Kathryn was a beautiful lyrical soprano. I chose to watch Kathryn in a cameo role appearance in 'Till The Clouds Roll By' in which she sang opposite Tony Martin in a duet from 'Show Boat' which was lavishly staged and beautifully sung… Continue

RIP - Kathryn Grayson dead at 88

Grayson died Wednesday at her Los Angeles home, the actress' longtime secretary and companion,…

1 Stetson Hat

3 Heaping Teaspoons of granulated sugar

Mix water and sugar. Wet the top and bottom of the brim. Smooth it out on a clean, hard surface. Allow to dry until stiff.

NYT on TCM

Today, Sunday February 14th (Happy Valentines Day) seems to be a banner day for screwball comedies and "NYT picks" on TCM. Everything from (For me, "Foreign Affair" in the AM is only good for those incredible scenics of bombed out Berlin) but from "The More The Merrier" at 12:00 PM through Summertime (I love Venice) at 12:00 AM are all excellent movies....And "The African Queen" with Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart (Oscar) is one of the greatest rousing romantic adventures of all time.… Continue

Three-Cornered Moon: the first screwball comedy?

Three-Cornered Moon, starring Claudette Colbert, “is often cited as being the first genuine ‘screwball’ comedy that launched an entire genre of films in the 1930s” (according to the blurb on the box). I don’t know the source of this statement, but let’s consider it.

It’s impossible, of course, to identify any single film as a launching pad for the genre, at least, not with any consensus. Definitions of genres are always…

ALL OF ME...

One witness reported...



"It was a beautiful clear night and you could see for miles. It hardly seemed minutes before the plane faded away over the Charleston range when I saw a flash and then big tongues of flame rising from the mountainside. The plane cracked in two like a piece of kindling wood."



Shock spread throughout the nation. War time America! Exactly when every… Continue

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
