    Star centennial birthdays

    Happy 100th Birthday to Joliet native, Audrey Totter! Here's an article I wrote about her life and hometown, with special input from her granddaughter, Eden Totter. https://home2hollywood.wordpress.com/illinois/audrey-totter/

    Star centennial birthdays

    June Allyson's centenary happened a little while ago. I wrote about Good News (1947) and its history in honor of her. You can read the article here: https://home2hollywood.wordpress.com/blogathons/june-allyson-centenary-blogathon-good-news-1947/

    Celebs You Might Not Realize Have Died

    I was friends with Lyn Wilde, who was one half of a twin act called the Wilde Twins. You can see the Wilde Twins in Andy Hard's Blonde Trouble, Till the Clouds Roll By, Campus Honeymoon, and Twice Blessed. When Lee Wilde quit the movies, Lyn continued on and made additional twins. Among her solo films, you can see her in Singin' in the Rain as the tennis player during the "Beautiful Girl" sequence. She died in 2016, almost a year to the day of her sister's passing beforehand. I miss her very much. You can read my article about her here: https://home2hollywood.wordpress.com/editorials/the-wilde-ones-the-twin-careers-of-lyn-and-lee-wilde/

    TCM Backlot Chicago

    Hello from Chicago! The Windy City Film fanatics typically meet once per month for a social event, with locations that have varied throughout the Chicagoland area, in addition to the TCM Big Screen Classic screenings. We are active on Facebook and Twitter. We aim to strike a balance between outings in the suburbs and the city proper, as our members are located from various areas within and beyond Chicago. Aside from social media, we communicate with one another through emails. I usually share updates from my end regarding the screenings and coordinating our meetings, while all of us also send around information about film-related events and screenings in the area. Happy to be part of Backlot!
