  1. Hi, I'm new here. But I've got an old story. Hope this is the right place to share. I was lucky enough to grow up in the heart of screen land, which is how Culver City identifies itself - the original MGM Studios. I have autographs from Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, acquired on the set of That's Entertainment, where I spent 15 minutes talking to Gene Kelly... the nicest guy you ever want to meet. This early exposure helped me format a career in the film industry that I just retired from. Now that I'm retired, my plan is to chronicle and share my stories from this magical time. I'd love it if
  2. Hello. I'm searching for information regarding the history and current locations of two fertility god statues used in The Prodigal (1955) (and other films) that were up for sale at the 1970 MGM auction. There was an 11-foot statue and a 5.5-foot replica. Here's the 11-foot statue (in a promotional shot for The Prodigal): And the 5.5-foot statue at the auction: Where the smaller statue ended up after the auction is not known, but the larger statue is known to have moved around Delaware for decades and then settled in someone's front yard in New Jersey in the 2000's. U
  3. LKitten16 asked if others noticed how the orchestrated drumming of "Prehistoric Man" and "Pass that Peace Pipe" from Good News" sounded similar. Yes, there is definitely a distinctive MGM sound that one can hear in its musicals. That can be attributed to the fact that many of MGM's arrangers and orchestrators worked on the same films, even as their melodies and themes were composed by different composers. And of course many of the same studio musicians performed on the scores. One of my fav moviemakers from MGM's Music Dept. was the FABULOUS Conrad Salinger - a composer/orchestrator/arran
  4. I am starting to flesh out my classic film book collection. And I have been trying to track down the best books on the history of the studio era, Scott Eyman's Lion Of Hollywood has been recommended to me as the definitive book about MGM, and there are others about Warner Bro's I am considering purchasing. I was wondering if anyone here can give me some recommendations, particularly for books about Fox, as there does not seem to be many out there. Thanks
  5. In Kendra Bean & Anthony Uzarowski's new take on the life of movie icon, "Ava Gardner: A Life in Movies" (Running Press), the co-authors shift the focus from the publicity writers' descriptions of her as"the world's most beautiful animal" to her real life as a person who was an imperfect but vibrant human being and working actress. If you would like to learn more about Ava Gardner, the individual, please join us at The Silver Screen Oasis on Sat., July 29th & Sun., July 30th for an online Q & A about the actress' life and career. She was an astonishing beauty when young

  7. https://bigjohncreations.wordpress.com In 1932, the American Horror Film came into its own as a viable genre. Dracula and Frankenstein had blown the doors off the industry the year before, making overnight stars of Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff, and paving the way for a variety of imitators. Paramount responded with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (starring Fredric March in the roles that would land him an Oscar,) and the similarly literate Island of Lost Souls, which cast Charles Laughton as HG Wells’ overly ambitious Dr. Moreau. Not to be outdone, MGM turned to their silent master of the ma
