This is a place to connect with fans of classic movies and the stars that made them.
HELLO TO YOU !! I am Elethea Roberson. I am truly SO very eager, to bring to you a posted statement that one of my best Friends wrote ~ Jet Weston --- of " Jet Weston and his Atomic Ranch…Continue
Sounds like a dumb question, but it really isn't...does it have to fall within a theorectical limited period of time? Is it a matter of the location? Does it have to have stetson hats, six-shooters and/or horses? Or is it a matter of thematic…Continue
I thought it might be fun to see what everyone is purchasing these days. And please do NOT feel like you need to limit your response to just classic films. As a matter of fact my last purchase was not a classic film at all but the latest Stargate…Continue
For me, December is Christmas Movie Month. I collect the classics pretty exclusively, and I roll out the old Christmas movies (starring Bing Crosby, Barbara Stanwyck, etc.) every year starting in late November.What are your favorites, and what have…Continue
I don’t know if this has already been discussed (if so I apologize) but I thought it would be fun to discuss everybody’s favourite hollywood actor from the golden era and why?Mine is Marilyn Monroe though I’m pretty sure the mass majority favors…Continue
It seems increasingly difficult nowadays to burn TV content to DVD due to copy protections. I was wondering if anyone is still doing this, and if so, from what channels, and using what sort of technology? I'd like to save to permanent storage some…Continue
Has anyone seen Man in the Chair? It's a 2007 release starring Christopher Plummer and Michael Angarano about a young classic film buff and a retired film gaffer he meets in a movie theater. It turns out the older man is the only surviving crew…Continue

Poor Little Rich Girl
CLIFTON WEBB, the 21st play in THE HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS Collection was published today, and is available in both paperback and Kindle editions.
Webb was one of Hollywood's most unlikely star.
Making his sound film debut when he was into his 50s, he starred in such films as LAURA, THE RAZOR'S EDGE, SITTING PRETTY, CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER, and THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN.
My one person play can be purchased via Amazon or ordered through your favorite bookseller.…Continue
I just saw Bullitt on the big screen, and it was naturally, a wow. The car chase actually made me a tad ill, seeing them go over the hills of San Francisco that way in the cinema. (McQueen's granddaughter said the same thing happened to her.) And it's so nice seeing a good cop show in the movies where there isn't one computer being used. Just good police work.
The Franchot Tone - Barbara Payton - Tom Neal Affair
The Lana Turner/Johnny Stompanato Relationship
These were certainly the 2 most sensational Hollywood scandals of the 1950s.
Come join us and talk about them.
Since I generally prefer to watch comedies, I have a lot of pre-Code melodramas/potboilers/morality tales in my collection that I still haven't watched. These were all gifts from friends. I have a huge backlog now, and today I was realizing what a treasure-trove it is.
I have several boxed sets of movies with dozens of Pre-Code movies starring great actors such as Loretta Young, Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, Fredric March, Claudette Colbert, Barbara Stanwyck, and on and on--all new to me!
I don't know much about these, but I'm curious to find out more. I'm currently watching Midnight Mary, starring a young and stupendously beautiful Loretta Young. She was 20 years old and already had 16 years of screen appearances behind her. Some of the other titles include:
Merrily We Go to Hell (Fredric March & Sylvia Sidney)
Hot Saturday (Cary Grant, Randolph Scott & Nancy Carroll)
Torch Singer (Claudette Colbert)
Search for Beauty (Ida…Continue
