Hi Rosie,
I’m very happy to be part of this wonderful group, and I look forward to a lot of interesting conversations.

Thanks for the welcome back, Rosie.  I always really enjoyed this site, and I'm looking forward to hanging around here again.  I do still have to watch my internet time---if I don't, three hours can be gone before I know it---but since I don't have any other social media accounts, I'm thinking limiting time will be doable.

Do you know what happened to Mad?

Rosie,

I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed it... and your son! I had a choir teacher in high school who, oddly enough, raved about Rear Window. I say this because he loved the fact that there was no music to speak of in the movie at least none that influenced you as you watch. No huge build up and then cymbals crashing at the climax of what ever horror befell the victim. Hitchcock, unlike the movie makers of today knew that the viewers anticipation and imagination created much worse fears than anything he could put on the screen. The only person in the industry today that has any resemblance to him in that regard is M. Night Shyamalan. 

Thrilled that you are getting your son interested. It's funny, I had older parents and older siblings so from an early age I was exposed to the "golden" age of Hollywood. Even today in my 50's people (of my generation) look at me when I talked Gloria Swanson or the pre-code era like I have three heads! :) Luckily for me my son, though he might not all the oldies, he appreciates them and knows who and what I'm talking about!    

All The Best,

Maureen

Thanks Rosie, it's great to see that you're always around and contributing so much. I'll try to keep up! Well, at least report in as often as I can:) Have a great week!

Yea... I purposefully don't allow comments on the Fundraiser.  I post it in a "text only" block so that it remains at the top until the funds are received. Thanks for your contribution though. It is much appreciated!

Hi Rosie,

I've been so busy with a variety of things at both home and work that it's been difficult to have much time to do the things that I really enjoy, one of which is checking out this blog and sharing my thoughts on classic films and it's stars with the members.  I've managed to watch several classic films recently, as well some new movies, too.  I hope you're doing well and are also having time to see some great movies.

Hi Rosie, 

I got married in August of 2015. Since then, we've bought a house and added a second border collie to the mix. Needless to say, I've been kept busy! How have you been?

Hi Rosie,

I found all my old comments still there in the "A Game I Play" thread. My avatar is empty, but it still shows my comments. I hadn't realized so many years have passed. I'm sure I haven't been gone 5 years though.

Hi Rosie: Yep, I've been hanging out on a couple of Facebook sites: Precode Hollywood, and, Stars of Silent and Early Sound Movies. I like the almost-instant feedback I get there on my posts. Here, my posts are mostly ignored, in favor of more recent stuff. Nice to hear from you. Hope your life is going very well. Mike

Hi, Rosie.Thanks for friending me! I'm not here very often and haven't posted in a very long time. But when I'm here I have enjoyed reading your posts. Best wishes, Midge in San Francisco.

Happy holidays to my GAOH family!

Hello, Rosie: I have returned to GAOH hopefully for good now.  So much has happened in my life recently that I feel the need for some GAOH therapy.  I hope everyone can put up with my inane ramblings!  Take care, Stephen x

Thank you, Rosie! I am so glad to know others that love the golden age of Hollywood!!

Rosie, Hello! :) I'm sorry I've taken so long to reply, but I am back on the site now. Yes, I LOVE the Tampa Theatre. It is a fairly recent discovery for me. My first time there was when the Florida Orchestra accompanied Chaplin's "Gold Rush." I think that was mid-2014. I have been so in love with that theatre ever since and I go often. I see they have just released their Summer Classic Series, and I already have the movies picked out that I am going to see. I'd choose just about all of them if I didn't have to work many weekends. :)

Glad I could get the sandbox back up in short order! I hope the new look isn't too shocking for some members and that they will give the new look a go. Thanks for your comment!

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 […]
