  1. Indeed! And he basically revolutionized the way people view movie title sequences. They became a creative, cohesive part of the film rather than just a list of credits tacked onto the beginning. You can view his motion pieces on his website, which is lovely. http://saulbass.tv/
  2. Lovely response. I especially enjoy what you said here > {quote:title=studio139 wrote:}{quote} > Modern movies are meant to > be a sensory experience, a spectacle, more like a amusement > park ride than an afternoon with a book. I think that's what is so appealing to me, and what reeled me in when I was a kid. I loved to curl up with a book (and still do), so curling up on the couch to watch old movie felt very much the same. I also think it's a good point to consider one's interest in history and archeology, which many of you have touched upon.
  3. I've developed an infatuation with movie posters -- This may have to do with the fact that I'm studying graphic design, but I definitely have some favorites and I'm sure I can't be the only one. So how about it...List your favorite film posters (or any kind of artwork associated with movies) of all time and why you like em. As for me, I have a deep admiration for Saul Bass. Whether he's done the artwork for title sequences or movie posters, his style is just definitely my cup of tea. It's also lucky for me that the movies he promotes are among some of my favorites.
  4. Ahh, I'm happy to see there are people here of all ages. ILoveRayMilland -- It is refreshing to see a younger person as passionate about classic films as you are. And that we became interested in them in such different ways -- Me stumbling upon Gone with the Wind on my own through a love of the novel, you being instilled with an appreciation by your family. And I'm glad you don't care about being different from your peers, in fact you should be quite proud. > {quote:title=helenbaby wrote:}{quote} > I think the type of person who would get into classic films are folks that are into
  5. Thank you Pia! I've only just started contributing to this community and I can tell already that it's filled with some very lovely people, you and Chip included. > {quote:title=Pia wrote:}{quote} > Do I have a real good grip on WHY that is? I don't.. But I suspect it is part and parcel with the fact that a Time Machine which could take me to any - and every - PAST space/place in time I choose has always, since childhood, been my most passionate - though impossible - dream and desire.. I don't know why the past is so very beautiful and desirable to me (I am pretty happy with most eve
  6. One of my favorite musicians is Jack White from the White Stripes and the Raconteurs, playing mostly rock and country and a little punk/garage rock. He also produced and played on the latest Loretta Lynn album that won a grammy a few years back. Anyway, one reason why I love Mr. White is he makes it no secret that he's a film fanatic. He has a record company called Third Man records and wrote a song called The Union Forever that pulls lines from Citizen Kane, which both indicate his admiration for Orson Welles. (He also has an infatuation with the number three, but no matter...) One th
  7. > {quote:title=ChipHeartsMovies wrote:}{quote} > Hi h_cue/Haley, and welcome to the boards... Hey there Chip, thanks for the welcome and the thoughtful response! I think it's lovely you've established a fondness for classic movies through bonding with your grandmother I've heard Slumdog is supposed to be really great, I'm hoping I can find the time to go see that soon. And I agree whole-heartedly about the CGI special effects. I suppose I understand how people can be compelled by that sort of fabricated on-screen world, it is quite creative and intense, but when there's nothing
  8. Orson Welles Clark Gable Rita Hayworth Jean Harlow Joseph Cotton Cary Grant Katherine Hepburn Leslie Caron Woody Allen Lucille Ball Jack Lemmon Claudette Colbert Myrna Loy Rosalind Russell (I'm not very familiar with her but I absolutely adore her in The Women. I'd like to see some more.)

I thought that perhaps with Ron Asheton's death still fresh on everyones minds, they may have been considered. It just kills me that one of the single most important bands to con
  11. Hello, I'm new as well! Welcome
  12. This is going to be a long-winded post tackling a lot of topics of conversation. But I do not apologize, because I think it could spark a very interesting thread that I look forward to reading, and I hope that you all will feel the same. I am new to this community, although not new to TCM or the world of classic movies. Many of my peers find it odd that a person of my age (20) could be so enamored by old movies. My favorites hail from any point in history, from the time film was invented to where it's at today, but I generally love classics from the 30's and 40's. I think it's intere
