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. That's all it took to get me hooked on the classics.
Though the movies I love most were made in a specific time frame (around the time silents began to the days when the studio era came to an end), I never fail to find something new to love, be it a movie, star or backstage story. This blog is a place where I can share those discoveries.
