About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
Hi everyone. I founded the Golden Age of Hollywood messageboard a few years ago and I'm delighted to support this great idea for a social network.
I'm 36 and have been a fan of classic movies for about a quarter of a century. My fave genres are comedies and musicals though I like most films (to varying degrees) made before 1960, some after that date too.
