About me

Location United States
Introduction When I was thirteen years old, I came across a showing of Dark Victory (1939) on TV. The movie was sort of funny looking (it turns out it was colorized), but even though Bette Davis’ lips were an odd raisin color, I was instantly drawn to her. I began to search out more movies on TV and in those great old neighborhood video stores that are nearly gone today. Then I started devouring books about Hollywood and searching out great titles at revival theaters. The process of discovering fascinating personalities and great movies over the years has been endlessly fascinating. My interest in this unique period (around the time silents began to the days when the studio era came to an end) has never flagged. Though the movies I love most were made in a specific time frame, I never fail to find something new to love, be it a movie, star or backstage story. This blog is, above all, a place where I can share those discoveries.
