"Just looked at the pictures of the restored theatre and it is absolutely sumptuous. For anyone who has not read this article of a Picture Palace from the Golden Age gloriously resurrected, be sure to have a look. What a magnificent achievement!"

About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
OK. I love the silent era. It always rewards further investigation. Something about watching the emergence of these early days of cinema and the vibrant personalities involved. Comedy was king in those days and I like the innocence and brashness of the time. And the period backdrop to the films. The jazz age has never been equalled since...
I am a family man and live blissfully here in Ireland.

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 […]
