  1. I love the film James! So, the greatest film so far that I have seen of his, with a huge sizeable role like The Great Garrick, is "Trick for Trick" from 1933. If you haven't seen it, OH MY GOD, next opportunity MOMA rents the reel or screens it, run out and go out and watch it. He plays a mad-man in that film too, only a Mad Scientist you gotta see to believe. Steals the whole feature, you've never seen anything quite like it. Blew my mind to the moon and back again!
  2. I need everyone's help that sees this! HELP ME and contact me, ill pay you and credit you for your contributions! My Grandmas Momma was having a love affair with LUIS ALBERNI, and then they got married. I met 21 people that met him so far, 15 of them didn't know his name but when they saw his face they said yes. I met 1 person in France and 1 in London. He was all over the world. I need to save his legacy, he's my papa! My Nana was 15 the year he died in 1962. All of our family heirlooms and photos are gone. Making a film is the only way i can fill mine and my Nana's pain. I need more peo
  3. Dear movie Lovers, Please will you help! Ill do anything for you, just please help me by asking and contacting me and by helping spread the word! Ask every senior citizen if the know Luis Alberni or Wanda by showing them a picture of them. YOU MUST SHOW A PICTURE. I found 20 people who met him, and 15 of them said no till I showed them his face. Dont stop asking, I only have so much time left while the people of the 1920's to 1960's are still with us. My great great grandma was married to the character actor Maestro Don LUIS ALBERNI, a Spanish native who ran away from home

  5. Jamesjazzguitar, definitely 1937 was an incredible year for my Papa, and that James Whale film, wow! Baffles me it's not more widely recognized than it is, I had loads of fun watching it time and again and he just about steals the movie, my papa. So hilarious! Also, I've had the great pleasure of meeting Marsha Hunt on several occasions, who had a small part in Easy Living, says she did it for Preston as a favor. I was in tears when I first met her, cause the same moment that I first met and was sitting across from her was the moment I discovered she founded a womans shelter I lived at w
  6. Aw, you all are the best! Topbilled yeah, I notice many people not carrying on their ancestors legacies, and its unfortunate, society itself I believe is to blame, I definitely can say that I had to battle and defeat society norms to be as passionate about my own history as I am. And you know, he was just so great, i just cant find it in myself to let him go unheard of. It is definitely part fate of my existence, being how honoring I have become. He left a very lasting impression on my Nana, and she loved him dearly. She painted a wild and colorful picture in my mind when she first told me abo
  7. Dear Classic movie fanatics, I need your help beyond proportions! My great great grandmother was the wife to an eccentric comic legend, and his name was LUIS ALBERNI... Luis Alberni was a very respected, admired and well loved sensational on screen and on stage personality of his time. He left behind an immense body of work and memories that will soon be lost forever, if I dont do what I am doing now. Wanda Wilson, my great great grandmother, was the daughter of a Texas Architect, whose registered historic landmarks to this day still stand. In the 1920's she was a bootlegger, s
