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

Posted by Tiffany Brannan on June 12, 2018 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

At 3 PM on July 15, the Code is returning to its first home, 5504 Hollywood Boulevard!

I am pleased to announce that my play, BRODERICK CRAWFORD, is now available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions. (The 2 editions probably won't be "married" on Amazon for about 24 hours, so if you want the Kindle, you'll have to look it up separately.)

I'll not be renewing The Golden Age of Hollywood this year come July. I can no longer justify asking members to help pay for a site that is dead. It's time for me to move along as well. I do appreciate everyone that participated over the years and especially those who donated to keep GAOH alive.

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 […]
