I was here when the TCM board first started but left a long time ago because of other commitments, however I always kept the board in my heart and have logged on to read all the new messages each day. I am first and foremost a fan of Silent Films and Foreign Films. A new Criterion release is an event in my life and the Barnes and Noble sale on Criterion is a month-long holiday. That folks, is when you know you are addicted to good quality film and not the junk that is produced today. Oh yeah, I named my child after Charlie Chaplin and his middle name is Gilbert after John Gilbert...maybe that's also a sign that I love film. Anyway, the gamut of film that I prefer is everything from Greed to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg with a whole bunch in between. I adore the likes of Buster Keaton, Lillian Gish, Bogart, Catherine Daneuve, Karl Dane and James Murray (bonus points to you if you know the last two) and so many more. Let's Have Fun!
