The Golden Age of Hollywood

As many of you know I do not subscribe to cable or satellite dish. I've just felt that the price was unreasonable for the few channels my wife and I watch. Consequently, I have not watched Turner Classic Movie channel in a very long time. Recently AT&T announced a new service that allows you to access 100 channels of Direct TV, and 1000s of movies on demand titles, via a streaming service for only $35.00 a month and it includes TCM! I signed up for the free trial and I have to say that the quality is very very good. As good and maybe a little better than Netflix. It's supported on many devices like Amazon Fire, Chromecast and even streaming from your PC. Since my TV is hooked up to my television I use a web browser to access. At one time I would have paid willingly $20.00 a month to have a streaming access to just TCM and so this is a good alternative with the benefit of being able to watch some other networks if we want to. So, for the time being, I'm saying adios to Netflix and tuning into DirectTVnow.

For a limited time, AT&T is offering lifetime fee of $35.00 a month for the hundred channel service. Your bill will never go up unless you cancel the service. Then you might not ever get that price again because I think the normal rate was $70.00. I recommend you try the free trial and if you're happy with the service then drop your cable or dish and stream away. I read that in 2017 they will be bringing DVR features to the service as well. Remember if you are one of the early subscribers your fee will never be more than $35.00 for life. Here is the link:

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 […]
