The Golden Age of Hollywood

     Hmm... So I thought I would just go ahead and post a quick thing. Nothing of real importance. I am just excited because my Aunt Cyndie surprised me! How? Well, I guess she heard that I am a Rosalind Russell fan, so she went out of her way to buy and send me a lovely head shot of her she found. It will go great on the wall next to the LIFE magazine (Nov 12th, 1956) I already have. 

<----Here is the picture she sent. I think it is a nice one. 

    It was a real nice surprise because yesterday was a really awful day. I had a bit of an accident with the weed eater while trying to get some yard work done. I will survive, but oh gosh did it hurt! 

     Today though, I plan to take it easy. Read some of the Greer Garson book I checked out, which I am loving so far, and watch some movies. I have been so busy this week that I have about 20 films recorded on the DVR that really need some attention. I figure if I'm laid up in bed for a while, might as well enjoy it. 

   

Anyway, hope everyone has a wonderful day and is ready for the upcoming weekend. Enjoy it!

Thanks Alyssa and Debbie.The picture really is lovely and looks great in my room. I am feeling much better today and I am sure I will be up on my feet in no time. I can not lie, it really does feel nice to be able and watch nothing but movies.

Gosh Debbie, I can feel for you in regards to the shingles. My grandmother got them in December and she is still healing from it. Glad to hear your better now though!

Isn't that the truth though! I was expecting a gas bill, so it was a nice surprise.

Ha! Just the idea of having a 21 year old son made me laugh. Could you imagine? Anyway, my leg feels so much better today. I had to get a tetanus shot though, which was really no big deal at the time. Now the arm I got the shot in is so sore, but I guess that is normal, so oh well. Just hope it passes soon.

DVR is such a fantastic thing! Where would we be without it?

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 […]
