fancy turns to all things cinematic in nature. And that doesn't just

mean "Hey, let's throw 'Halloween' in again"; in the past weeks Twitter

has been awash with requests on "which horror classic I should watch," a

question that is music to any horror fan's ears.…

Golden Age Radio Network

I have created two radio stations as a sort of mini network linked informally with The Golden Age of Hollywood. I thought they might be of interest since both feature music from the movies. Clicking on the links should take you directly to them, the music should start immediately. You'll also find them on shoutcast.com and radiotime.com.

The Shoes, Yes the Shoes!



The first step in creating a pair of replica ruby slippers is, of course, the shoes! But, as anyone knows who’s looked for them knows, it’s much harder than one would expect. Shoes today are nothing like the Innes…

The Most Recognizable Shoes in All Hollywood History…

They need no explanation. Everyone knows what they are, who wore them, what they need. They are the indelible icon of a uniquely American fairy tale, an enduring symbol of the power of belief. They’re also worth a fortune, which is power in itself. But, even more, they are objects of obsession. The Wicked Witch of the West was certainly obsessed by them, and possessed by the…

Movies for grown-ups: pre-Code Hollywood

Recently, I have been primarily watching films from the 1930s. That decade is key in the history of American cinema for finally establishing sound movies or ‘talkies’, which had started in the late 1920s. That decade also saw the introduction of the Motion Picture Production Code or Hays Code, which provided censorship guidelines to films. I identify two… Continue

These are being shipped back to the United States. This on top of the large collection of films that the were discovered in Argentina, and New Zealand several months ago. …

FORBIDDEN PLANET on Blu-Ray

As many of you know I am a huge fan of science fiction and especially the Star Trek series. The roots of Star Trek however go back to the pulp science fiction of the 1930s to the 1960s and the consequent movies of that period. One of the best classic films in that genre is FORBIDDEN PLANET. Most of you have probably seen this film but I wanted to mention to everyone that the film was released on Blu-Ray a while back and I finally got a copy. I have to say that…

Scoring Rare Silent films for Grapevine Video



Very excited to say that I am getting the opportunity to compile new musical scores for Rex Ingram's THE CONQUERING POWER (1921), with Rudolph Valentino and Alice Terry, as well as a few other rare Silent films for Jack Hardy's Grapevine Video. I am most grateful for this generous chance. These will be released on DVD-R eventually. That is assuming the music is cleared for use, and providing I ever get the projects… 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 […]
