The Golden Age of Hollywood

I'll not be renewing The Golden Age of Hollywood this year come July. I can no longer justify asking members to help pay for a site that is dead. It's time for me to move along as well. I do appreciate everyone that participated over the years and especially those who donated to keep GAOH alive. 

auf Wiedersehen!

Kevin, I am awfully sorry to hear this. Many internet forums seem to be struggling these days due to the popularity of mobile social apps like Twitter and Facebook. Perhaps their time has passed. It sure was fun while it lasted, though. Please accept my sincere thanks for all your hard work over the years. I wish you well in whatever lies ahead for you. Take care.

Kevin:  This is truly tragic news.  I realise I am not a regular attendee, and perhaps not licenced to comment, but the whole GAOH site, reading people's thoughts on films made before I was born gave me a huge sense of relief that there were others in the world who were as sad as me, or as mad as me.  I've loved the 'old stuff' since 1978 and the internet has saved me, almost literally.  I've found others like me!  But, if something is not supported enough, right, it just has to give over and end.  That's sad, sad, sad.  In this day and age, people don't appreciate what they've got.  

I can only hope that others can put together something that makes nerds like me happy.  Sorry to see this site go.  As you can tell, I'm a rambler, and to click on my book mark and find that '404 this page no longer exists' message already fills my heart with dread.  I must save the blogs I wrote before it all goes down. x

Aw... sad face.  But understand as there is not the activity there once was.   Sorry to see the site go.  Its been a good friend over the years, and made many friendships here, including yours Kevin.  I hope to come catch up with you and yours in the States one of these days.  :D  Farewell GAOH  sob sob sob....

PS  just read John Frederick's comments, and summed up completely how I feel too.  I will miss The Game a lot.  That has been so much fun and learnt so much there from all the knowledgeable players.  The pages of The Game are priceless, so many great films listed.

Sorry to see the site go, but I can certainly understand since there doesn't seem to be much traffic here the last couple of years.

If you change your mind, I would be happy, as in the past, to donate.

So sorry to hear that Kevin. Over the years we have built up such great friendships with our passion for classic movies, recommending films we love to each other, reinforcing our knowledge by our comments and suggestions. Looking back through the years at the postings I can see a vast comprehensive wealth of knowledge of movie history compiled by us all. But even though for most of us we have never met in the flesh, we all have a bond of affection . It will be so sad not to have that privilege anymore.

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 […]
