My name is Tiffany Brannan. I don't think I have ever seen you online while I have been here. It is nice to meet you!
By the way, I would like to invite you to join my blogathon, "The Great Breening Blogathon:" https://pureentertainmentpreservationsociety.wordpress.com/2017/09/07/extra-the-great-breening-blogathon/. It is celebrating the life and work of Joseph Breen, the enforcer of the Motion Picture Production Code between 1934 and 1954. As we honor his birthday, which is on October 14, we will be discussing and analyzing the Code era, breening films from other eras, and writing about our own ideas for classic movies. One doesn't have to agree with the Code and Mr. Breen to enjoy that! I hope you will do me the honor of joining. We could really use your talent!
By the way, TWELVE O' CLOCK HIGH is probably my favorite movie about the United States Army Air Corps (as it was known then). Great acting on behalf of Gregory Peck and Dean Jagger (who won an oscar for his role, though Peck deserved one too). It is a masterpiece on the pressure men face during a bombing campaign such as those notorious daylight raids over Germany. even though it focuses more on the airmen and how they are affected, the movie does have a great prolonged battle sequence the blends real war footage with hollywood footage very well. And the score by Alfred Newman, though small, is effective and packs a punch. the other Aerial combat films i want to see are AIR FORCE and THIRTY SECONDS OVER TOKYO.
Welcome to this great site, Mr. Walker. a Hearty "Semper Fidelis" to you and your service to our country during the 1950s, an era i love very much. I am an old soul and know that the past should not be seen through "rose tinted" glasses but i still love just about anything from the 1930s, 40s and 50s, especially the great movies of those times and the music and fashions of the lot. It is a time that i would very much have like to have lived in, even if i am just 17.
Good to have a fellow Southerner along as well, from the ol' Bluegrass state. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. So geographically and BY HEART i am a southerner, even with my hispanic blood and living in hispanic communities. But if anything i would be more at home at a ranch in Texas than i would anywhere else. :-)
Hello Ken! Welcome to The Golden Age of Hollywood. Sorry about the delay in approving your membership and for the not greeting you sooner. I work for a big box store and we just finished our annual inventory and things have been gruesome for a couple of weeks. I hope to have some more free time after this coming week is over. I hope you enjoy the site.

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 […]
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 […]
