Re: Happy Birthday Mrs. Danvers!

Thank you guys very much. I am sorry I am such an absent forum member. But I rarely spend much time on my computer anymore, but I thought I'd check in and see you guys.

I'm biking as much as possible and walking, working in the yard and taking care of my 90 year old mom.

Re: Bill Cullen

Oh yes I loved Bill Cullen too. I remember him from To Tell The Truth and I've Got A Secret the most.

Re: Hobbies (besides movies)

That's a fun idea Kitty. I too find it absolutely astounding how little most all of us know about our past, most of us can't even get past our grandparents and great grandparents. I don't know if it's because we are a nation of immigrants or what. But in my case and my husband as well, we have had "...

Re: Silent Ladies & Gents - Similar Alternatives?

Thank you for your kind recommendation. As my intention is always disclosing unknown silent films and players, it may not always be the most popular site ever. But the pleasure to disclose the work of those forgotten so long ago is really something priceless. I love your website, I never tire of se...

Re: I Married Joan

Hello Miwi, I love that show, I vividly remember watching it as a kid, it must have been in reruns, the show ran from 1952-1955, I was born in 1952, but I remember watching the show and still remember the theme song. (even though now i can't even remember where i put my car keys) Jim Backus was a hu...

Re: Hobbies (besides movies)

Music and movies, doesn't get better than that. I still look at my old movie star books alot, I never tire of looking at those fabulous faces. As Normand Desmond exclaimed..."We had faces then!"

Hobbies (besides movies)

I've been doing genealogy on my family and my husbands for a few years now, but it really took off when I retired and had hours to spend if i wanted to, tracking stuff down. The best site, hands down, for absolutely free information, is Family Search Church of the Later Day Saints, no kidding. They ...

Re: Your Go-To Silent Feature

There are quite a few of Chaney's movies on DVD, I get them our local library, movies of all types but they have a huge selection of silent movies because they can get them from any other branch for us. It's not all bad living in a one horse town. I haven't seen that Peter Pan movie, but I bet I can...

Re: Your Go-To Silent Feature

Hi guys, Lon Chaney had problems with his legs for the rest of his life from that role in The Penalty, from having them bound backwards for so long. He was brilliant in every film I have seen of his. The Unknown 1927 is a real doozy. Directed by Tod Browning, also a treat, and featuring Lon Chaney a...

Re: Your Go-To Silent Feature

Good time to plug my favorites too. I like the Weimar Era German films alot. The years between the 2 world wars was filled with an explosion of talented film makers. From the time Adolf Hitler became Germany's chancellor in 1933 to the opening salvos of World War II in 1939, about 800 actors, direct...
