TRACY is #1

I just learned that the new audio edition of TRACY is currently the #1 release on Amazon in the Play and Scriptwriting Department. Chris Hendrie delivers a masterful performance as Spencer Tracy in this adaptation of my stage play, which we've enhanced for your listening pleasure with music and sound effects. These rankings change daily, so we will enjoy this while it lasts. …See More

ERROL FLYNN and Others on Audio

I made a deal yesterday for an actor to do an audio recording of my one-person play, (Errol) FLYNN.That makes audio versions of five (5) of my one-person plays currently in production. The other four are (Clark) GABLE, (Carole) LOMBARD, (Spencer) TRACY and (Basil) RATHBONE.It's a bit of a juggling act for me, but (hopefully) all five will be finished and available for holiday giving.BTW: My one-person plays, ORSON WELLES and CLARA BOW are already available on audio, and can be downloaded via…See More

Thank you for adding me as a friend. I always enjoy talking old movies, and especially Westerns lately, due to the book I am working on.  I see you listed Raoul Walsh up above, and he was a close acqaintence with my family. Any writing and/or publishing tips are always welcome! :) Take care, Kristine

What a pleasure it must've been, Mr. Druxman. Meeting or at least talking to some of the greats of Golden age hollywood. That's the benefit of being a screenwriter and playright. :-)

Hi Mr. Druxman!: i ought to tell you i've had a recent interest in Randolph Scott, whose films i aim to see more of in order. i consider him a very underrated actor and Excellent Western star who could hold his own with The King of Cowboys, John Wayne. Him and the duke starred in THE SPOILERS and PITTSBURGH with Marlene Dietrich. And they engage in what i consider the greatest two-man saloon fight in history in the former film. What better way to have a "greatest Saloon fight" than with two Icons of the Western film?; if John Wayne is the King of Westerns, then Randolph Scott would be Prince. Then Gary Cooper and Joel McCrea and James Stewart the Knights. And so on. :-)

well, Mr. Druxman, i've just approved you as memeber of my classic adventure films group. hope you have fun on it!

Happy New Year, Mr. Druxman! i take it you're a fan of Orson Welles. He definitely was great in CITIZEN KANE, THE THIRD MAN, TOUCH OF EVIL, and even in the radio series THE SHADOW back in the 30s. Even in his 20s, the man had an undeniable talent and ambitions in picture making.but unfortunately he was also vainglorious, one of the things that brought him down.

Merry christmas, Mr. Druxman! I think it's very creative how you've done one-act plays of Classic hollywood greats! I've been wanting to read them, but the public libraries over here in miami, florida just don't have them. Well, i've been checking out the Gangster picture/crime drama, starting with ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES, which i enjoyed a great deal and find it one of Cagney's best. I have many more to see, like those with Eddy G. Robinson, and of course, Humphrey Bogart.

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 […]
