|Introduction||I have a lifelong love for classic movies. I enjoy Poetic realism, German Expressionism, Silents, Pre-Codes, Film noir, and Classic Horror. I also enjoy classic TV shows such as The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Outer Limits, Thriller and Perry Mason. I hope to write about some of the hidden gems I have discovered and give a little love and attention to lesser known movies.|
