Life has a way of turning on its head, and so now I'm thinking of selling part of my vast collection of Golden Age of Hollywood memorabilia - specifically, my Carole Lombard collection, which includes pieces of her jewelry,a rare poster issued in the sixties (it's huge, a still from the publicity shoot for To Be or Not to Be) some notes she wrote, and some available but hard to find books. It's not an easy decision, qnd parting with this stuff would be hard, but if I can find "good homes" for… Continue

One of the things I loved to do at the messageboard was to create surveys. Its something we haven't done much here, I'd also love to see more members post movie lists and possibly give everyone a weekly movie quiz. Would these be things people would be interested in ? Possibly a group for lists,surveys and quizzes with reminders on the main page ?
Anyway here is a bit of a test survey just to see how many responses I will get first just by posting a link here, possibly I'll contact… Continue

By dawn the dogs had been called off. I came out of the brush covered in mud. It had rained all night and all I had done was run and crawl through godforsaken sewage until the only scent the dogs could get was that of the surrounding mud and filth. There was no point in the deputies dragging the tired K-9's through any more torture than they had already endured. Standing on a bluff overlooking the highway, smog rising across the river over the low-lying buildings of the big city. If I could get… Continue

Fridge full of beer, bowl of hot popcorn, which would you rather see? One more round of Jack Nicholson's septuagenarian spit takes or DMX racing a quad-runner out a sixth-story window? That may seem like a false choice, but for anyone with even mild insomnia, it's the sort of decision you face a lot in life. Enough late nights and enough action flicks and pretty soon you have a crypto-list of favorite stunt films.
My list is informed by conversations with stunt performers, men and… Continue

By S.T. Vanairsdale
Even before he directed the box-office record holder Titanic, James Cameron worked with the impunity and swagger of a man who knew someday he would rise to the top of his craft. Today, with a new batch of adjusted numbers culled from the Hollywood record books, he can return to that underdog position — at least until Avatar arrives this fall to restore his crown. But it has a long, long way to go to catch up with the Southern belle who surpassed… Continue

Berry Tramel: Lou Gehrig's message lives on
70 years later, the Iron Horse's speech is still greatest sports speech ever
Published: July 3, 2009
Yankee Stadium rang out with cries of "We want Lou! We want Lou!,” but Lou Gehrig remained silent.
Gehrig sought the comfort of the dugout, his only sanctuary in the four weeks since doctors told him why he no longer could hit rockets or catch missiles.
Bat and glove no longer followed his… Continue

Can anyone suggest sites that show sitcom (and other TV shows) homes/buildings i.e. photos of the building and any trivia like One house being used for different TV sitcoms?
I already have a few like TV Party and Seeing Stars but need some more.

Amazon, other retailers carry classic DVDs
By Susanne Ault -- Video Business, 7/1/2009
JULY 1 | PHYSICAL: Warner Archive Collection titles are getting broader distribution at retail.
The deep catalog offerings, which include such titles as The Mating Game, Possessed and Once Upon a Honeymoon, are part of the manufactured-on-demand Archive Collection by virtue of the fact that their limited sales potential had prevented a traditional retail release. Yet, there’s now… Continue

The voice sobbing on the phone was my oldest surviving friend, Vincent Lovecraft, my co-star in so many movies, always as the lustful villain who swore at me again and again his timeless catch-phrase: "Love me - or DIE!" But now he wasn't threatening me; he was trying through tears to ask me, "Where were you when you heard about - about - [sob] about GS?"
No need for him to say more. I knew he meant Gale Storm, the Queen of Com, everyone's Little Margie, the Greatest Entertainer of… Continue

All media is fiction. Everything you see, hear and read, in print and on any screen anywhere is a fabrication that has been altered, edited, censored, and pointed towards a preconceived agenda. It is not true, it is not real, is not the whole story by any stretch of the imagination—which it is, but it’s not really anyone’s imagination either.
It is a corporate product; a mind game conceived of by faceless committees meant to dupe anyone within view or earshot into complacent… Continue

I live entirely isolated from society, in exile from NYC in the suburbs of New Jersey. My life is solely devoted to my cats, pulp fiction, film noir and pre-code aesthetics. I firmly believe that the most beautiful women are in b/w and I utterly loathe contemporary Hollywood, advertising and the media in general. My work is ultraviolent and fueled by contempt.

In the beginning, my Old Man’s operation was strictly penny-ante. Most times his boys didn’t risk showing their faces for fear of getting in too deep.
So the Old Man decided it was time to spread out, saying, “Let’s light a fire under this dump,” and the fire was lit.
His boys did such a good job building the organization that he was able to divide the eastside from the west.
On the eastside lived the swells while the west was left to lowlifes and dropouts. The two sides were… Continue
