About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I have been a classic movie fan since I was a little kid. I grew up in Madison, Wisconsin and the local TV stations in the 1960's and 1970's played classic films on Friday nights, Saturday, and Sunday in various time slots. Mostly on Friday evenings the midnight show played classic sci-fi and horror. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons I could see films like the Sherlock Holmes, Charlie Chan, Tarzan, Jungle Jim etc. etc.

It wasn't until about 15 years ago that I really started taking an interest in classic films when I stumbled upon Turner Classic Movies in the early 1990's and tuned into a Humphrey Bogart festival. After that my interest has steadily grown.

I co-administrate a message board/forum with a great fellow movie lover named Derek/Classic Movie Man. It's also called The Golden Age of Hollywood and a link to it can be found below. Please feel free to join!

In case you are wondering about my handle it is because I am also a huge Star Trek fan. My first name is Kevin and so the "K" with trek = Ktrek. It's a handle I have used for many years on the internet and telenet before that, but being a Star Trek fan doesn't make me any less of a classic movie lover!

Hi, Kevin. I wish I could comment or reply to your fundraiser post, but there doesn't seem to be a way. I just sent you some cash. Thank you for not giving up on us!

Thank you for welcoming me back to GAOH. I was sad to find my account gone after my active participation in the past. I look forward to more fun discussions about the old movies I love with other members who appreciate them as I do.

Thank you Kevin for welcoming me to your wonderful site. This will definitely be a go to for me. I broke my favorites down in genres because as you can see the list is quite extensive and it would be way to much to have it run all together.

Kevin Good afternoon! Kevin, as I am new to the group i have a question: - i post here also the photos and information that I have about some actors and actresses? Or here only the administrators of the Group's who post things?

Tks so much  for allowing me to add. I'm sure that we share many precious information of our actors and actresses favorites.

Hi Kevin, I have Name that Star up and running with a new game for September.  Just wondering is there any way that the group's activity could show up on the Main Page, like it does for The Game, Connect the Stars, etc.? William is my sole player at the moment (although its only been up for 15 mins! lol).  I did email the members to let them know there is a new game btw.

Hi Kevin, loving the Jean Harlow pic on the main page. I only just noticed... I was wondering something.  Would it be ok for me to have a bash at doing a Name That Star game?  I miss that game.  It was a lot of fun.  I can get the pics together if you think I'd be suitable to do that for one month?

Thanks.  I may take a while getting to learn my way around.  Looks like fun for old flicker-heads like myself.

Millenials

Apparently, most millennials have never seen a classic movie. Pretty sad really, but not surprising. Check out this article:

Just wanted all my friends here at GAOH know that if you see very little of me for a while it's because my wife and I are retiring and relocating from Texas to Tennessee. We went on vacation there in early June and decided that was where we wanted to retire to. Last week we…

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 […]
