  1. Several years ago I was visiting my daughter who lives in Grand Island, Nebraska. We visited a thrift store and I picked up a book about Ms. Hepburn called "Me". In it I discovered an inscription - In the front it said "Me, I couldn't resist this - I love you, Me". I always wondered whether it was Ms. Hepburn herself who wrote that. I am getting older myself now and thought I would sell the book to someone else to enjoy, but I wanted to know whether I could say that she had written that, so I sent it to Beckett authentication services. They came back with an 'Inconclusive" decision. I guess they are only used to looking at the way someone writes their name. Anyway, I wonder whether anyone might happen to know whether she ever wrote that. I could use the money from selling it, and in addition, I don't want to see it just thrown away when I die. I am new to this website and don't know whether I will receive an answer here or at my email address. I will keep checking back here for a while. I wish you all well. We all really enjoyed Ms. Hepburn. Didn't we!
  2. Hello fellow film noir fans, Like all of you I love film noir - grew up watching it and even wrote several plays inspired by it (all published and widely produced). I also taught a college course in it. So, I’m the author of a new book with a totally different look at film noir, “Film Noir production: the Whodunit of the Classic American Mystery Film” from Routledge. Focal Press. I know – another book on Film Noir, really? Well, yes. Because as a member of the Mystery Writer’s of America, an award winning screenwriter/playwright and a working professional in the film/TV industry in lighting and cinematography, I felt I needed to write a book enlightening readers about all the wonderful and interesting people who worked in the shadows behind creating what would become known as “film noir”, who are so often glanced by other books. I talk about the Hollywood studio chiefs and the original mystery novels the films were based on, the staff screenwriters and the film factory producers, the contract actors and studio cinematographers, the art directors, costume designers and music composers – what they all did and how they all together with the directors created one of the most popular forms of mystery films . So I wrote about the noir themes, character types, dialog style, imagery, cast and public reception of these classic films and how the films were made from the perspective of someone who works in the film industry and is a published mystery writer. It’s a fun, conversational read rather than an academic thesis. I’m trying to get the word out about it. I wish they had allowed me to put in more pictures, but - oh well. I did lots of research including at the Academy of Motion picture Arts & Sciences document room and on this wonderful TCM website. Its available on Amazon and on the publisher's page. So here’s a link to my book https://www.routledge.com/Film-Noir-Production-The-Whodunit-of-the-Classic-American-Mystery-Film/Landau/p/book/9781138201484 and on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Film-Noir-Production-Whodunit-American/dp/1138201480/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484514436&sr=8-1&keywords=film+noir+production Hope you give it a look and hopefully enjoy it. Happy new year all. David Landau
  3. I have an anniversary coming up. My fiancee and I are celebrating two years together. I'm getting her a copy of The Mark of Zorro, because she's a huge Zorro fan. She also has a crush on Tyrone Power. I wanted to get her a biography about him, because she's a librarian and loves to read. I found some books on Amazon, but is there a particularly good biography on Tryone Power? Please and thank you. P.S. I hope I posted this in the right section.
  4. Does anyone know any pre-1977 movies where a defining characteristic of a male protagonist is that he's interested in books and reading?
