Fred Foy, ‘Lone Ranger’ Announcer, Dies at 89

A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty Hi-Yo, Silver! ...



For a decade, first on the radio and later on television, Fred Foy was the man who intoned those gallant lines, among the most evocative in American broadcasting.



Mr. Foy died on Wednesday, at 89, at his home in Woburn, Mass. The death, of natural causes, was confirmed by his daughter Nancy Foy.

Podcast Revamp

In the New Year I'm going to make some changes to the Podcast. I'm hoping to vary the structure a bit more possibly make it consist of shorter segments rather than one long discussion.

I would interested to hear any suggestions and remember the door is always open if you want to come on and talk about movies. I'm interested in any audio recordings of reviews of classic movies/stars etc up to say 5-10 minutes in length so why not write something and then record it. If you have Skype…

My Top Ten Favorite Christmas Movies.

In honor of the holidays, here is my top ten list of favorite Christmas movies. There are a few modern films mixed in as well as one animated film. And suprisingly there are a few traditional movies that are missing such as White Christmas and It's A Wonderful Life. But I do like those films as well. Would love to hear everyone else's choices. Merry Christmas!

10. REMEMBER THE NIGHT (1940) The first of two Barbara Stanwyck films that made the list. Babs plays Lee…

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.
