This is where it all began for me – my love of classic movies. As a one year old (I’m told) I watched The Wizard of Oz repeatedly. Ever since I can remember, I’ve looked to the classics for inspiration whether it be the fashion, the characters, or the artists themselves.
When I became a teenager I wanted to know more about how these films were made. I remember looking at Herb Bridges’ book, Gone with the Wind: The Definitive Illustrated History of the Book, the Movie, and the Legend, over and over – poring over the behind-the-scenes photos and savoring all the special features on films that I could get my hands on. Not much has changed since then. I’m still doing those things, and my fascination continues to grow as I learn more about these films and the people who made them.
Join me on my movie loving adventures! Along the way I’ll recommend books from my collection, chat about rare and must-see movies, and travel to locations linked with Old Hollywood, bringing the people and places vividly to life.
Classic film fans, I hope that this will be a place where we can feel at home, where we can come together to discuss, celebrate, and appreciate the often underrated, but oh so wonderful world of classic movies.
