    Quick hits on Spencer Tracy.

    Probably one of the most natural actors to ever hit the silver screen.Tracy defined acting by his great quote, "less is more." Please don't get trapped into judging Tracy by his movies with Kate Hepburn. He was a finer actor in other films. Guess Who's Coming To Dinner is the...

    Not Even A Genre, But....

    I love those British "B" movies they made in the late 60's, early 70's. (stuff like "Eye of the Devil" with Sharon Tate and Deborah Kerr. The Pit and the Pendulum with Vincent Price. The Shuttered Room with Carol Lindley and Gig Young). There was usually a castle involved...

    Quick hits on two fine actresses.

    Claudette Colbert is probably my favorite actress. Everybody raves about It Happened One Night but it was just an okay film to me. The real Colbert masterpiece for me is Tomorrow Is Forever, never seen such heartfelt dialogue in one movie. Imitation Of Life is also a good one...

    Why I Love Classic Movies...

    To me Old or Classic Movies are those made before 1970. Sadly, films from the 70's are like this fashion styles of the period- trash... Classic movies actress and actresses tend to be much better at their craft. And many were surprisingly versatile. Gregory Peck, James Stewart...
