The Golden Age of Hollywood

Our member Joanne forwarded me an article that states that Ning will no longer be offering FREE service. If this is true, which I believe it is, then GAOH will be closing down. Not only can I not afford to pay for service to keep GAOH going but I'm unwilling to hassle with soliciting funds to keep it going. So, if you come by one day soon and GAOH is gone then you will know why. Here is the link to the article:

If I were you, I would create a brand new profile using another email addie and user name and go from there - I think that should work!

No it was not worth the extra $300.00. Unfortunately, my Youtube account was disabled roughly three months ago. So that means I can't embed my own uploads. I've tried to get the account activated again, but they have never once responded to my request. I can still embed other folks Videos, but not my own. By uploading direct, I could have still added videos here straight from my computer. It doesn't appear that TCM Classic Film Union allows embedding? from their site? I'll look into that and find out for certain. Seems funny that you can upload, but not embed on TCM CFU.

Yes...you can still embed videos. I would say over 90% of all the videos on here are embeded. and all videos that are currently uploaded will still stay available. They will not be deleted. The only real loss is not being able to upload mp3s and have the Ning player. There will be several new features that we gain and I think the site will be better than it was. I just don't believe having the mp3 player and the ability to upload video and music was worth $300.00 more a year. Does anyone?

Oh okay, so we can still embed videos? That's great then!

I understand - but I wish she had stayed. Very much. There is still time to upload videos I think? So if people want to do that they should prolly be doing that now. I prefer my own music player to the ones Ning had and they're very easy to create and add to your page.

I think it's weird that people are complaining about not being able to upload videos. Almost every video in the library, with the exception of Baz's have been embedded from other sites. AND NING WILL STILL ALLOW EMBEDDING!!!

So, to me this is no big loss. There are also several FREE mp3 players that you can just add the code into the text box on your personal page. An example can be found on mine. Video and music hogs up a tremendous amount of storage and I doubt there will actually be much change in how we do business around here.

And yes it is dissapointing to see FCM leave. I was placed in one of those damned if you do, damned if you don't positions. I made the decision to ask for help to keep the network on Ning. Some people didn't agree and so what can I do?

I don't feel that I should speak for her, you know? - if you have her email address I am sure she would like to hear from her friends here. I can prolly help you with the outside music player thing - let me know. Yes, I am also disappointed we will not be able to upload videos - so we should prolly all be doing that before the site changes over.

Why did she leave??? It is a little disappointing that we can't videos and music, but I can do that on Classic Film Union. How do I embed a player? Never had to try that before.

I am not at all happy to see that Miss Classic Movie Fan has departed - I feel oddly staying on here without her. I'm glad you reached your goal and I made a small contribution, but I really do wish the site could have been moved to a free one. FCM was a priceless asset here, and I'm terribly sorry she wont be here any more.

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 […]
