Please feel free to leave comments or message me if you find anything unsettling about the change or areas where you can't see the links etc. Anyway, welcome to the new look of The Golden Age of…Continue

I have a collection of old movie magazines from which I will pick an issue now and then and show you some of the articles, reviews and gossip of the time.
First up is an issue of Film Pictorial from 1936, with cover girl Merle Oberon, who had just starred in These Three (1936), a William Wyler picture also starring Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea, which was a version of The Children's Hour (William Wyler later, rather splendidly, remade the film in 1961 with the…
I want to be alone. - Greta Garbo
I never said, 'I want to be alone.' I only said, 'I want to be left alone.' There is all the difference.
- Greta Garbo
The biggest star to come out of the silent era and continue her enormous succes into the talkies, Stockholm-born Garbo (born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson) made her Hollywood debut in 1925 with Torrent. Her acting talents combined with a unique…

In the 30's French-born Claudette Colbert was the highest-paid movie actress. Her most famous role was opposite Clark Gable in It Happened One Night (1934), for which she won an Academy Award. That same year she also starred in Cecil B. DeMille's version of Cleopatra.
Continuing a very succesful decade throughout the forties, she made the switch to television and Broadway in the fifties.
An imagined imperfection made her insist the right side of her face was never…

Does the above glamour puss look familiar but you can't quite put your finger on who she is? I don't blame you - this woman never actually existed. She's a 50/50 combination of two very famous screen goddesses - can you guess which two?

Kazan was one of the most influential and revered directors in American cinema. Starting out as an actor himself, he co-founded the famous Actors Studio in 1947, home of 'Method acting' - a technique that values realism above all else. He was partly or fully responsible for launching the movie careers of Marlon Brando, James Dean and Warren Beatty, to name just three.

An accomplished actor of stage and screen, Max Schreck will forever be associated with the one role that made him immortal: Count Orlok in the silent Nosferatu (1922). A thinly-veiled copy of the famous Dracula story, Nosferatu follows more or less the same story line as Bram Stoker's novel. But with Count Orlok Schreck created a unique vampire that, once seen, can never be forgotten.
The film Shadow of…
