The Golden Age of Hollywood

When I found TCM I felt as though I had come home. Robert Osbourne seemed to embody the essence of the GAOH, grace, style and a true gentleman. His knowledge about the movies, the stars, the interactions, the industry was amazing. When you watched him interview an actor it was more of a conversation than an interview. He had an ease and warmth that appeared to make everyone feel at home.

I love Ben Mankiewicz and having a "Hollywood family" still carry the torch in the business is awesome.No one can replace Robert, but Mr. Mankiewicz has done a great job during Robert's absence and I think there is no one better to fill the void.

TCM was a departure from the commercial filled, reality, in your face programming of today and, Robert Osbourne was the perfect person to educate, entertain and share his love of the Hollywood with the viewers.

Rest in Peace Robert Osbourne, you will truly be missed.

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 […]
