I’ve always loved movies. In 2012, I watched “Ninotchka” for the first time and it made me a fan of old movies and their stars like never before. I’ve since become obsessed with Hollywood films of the 1930s and 1940s. After two years of watching them, I’ve come up with a list of favourite actors and actresses from that period.

My favourite actresses of the period are Greta Garbo, Kay Francis, Jean Arthur, Barbara Stanwyck, Mary Astor, and Marlene Dietrich. My favourite actors are Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, and Herbert Marshall. I often choose which movies to watch based on the cast. The personalities and talents of actors and actresses I love most keep me entranced through all kinds of films, from prestige pictures and genre films to cult classics and ‘B’ movies.

Movies from the 1980s and 1990s are the first I ever loved. I started writing about ‘The Golden Age of Hollywood’ pictures on another site in 2012. After leaving it, I decided to continue writing with my own blog. Posts here are a record of my 2014 movie journey.

Some pages I created on the other site
(“Kay Francis”, “Garbo Party”, and “Garbo Works!”)
were transferred here from their original source, so this blog has writing from 2012, 2013, and 2014.

While I liked to write about a variety of movie-related topics,
certain subjects came up again and again.
For example, I was often compelled to address
Greta Garbo and “The Simpsons”.

I grew up watching “The Simpsons” (seasons 1-8), so my memory
is full of scenes and lines from it. Sometimes I’d refer to the show
while talking about classic cinema. This was a fun and
useful way to explain my thoughts or feelings about a movie.
I hope my frenzied words are enjoyed by all who discover the blog.
