Good morning!

I was overjoyed to be interviewed about my love of classic movies on Music with Minnesotans on MPR!  I love all classic movies but musicals especially.  I chose An American in Paris, Power Of One, Singing in the Rain and West Side Story.  All great!

Happy New Year!

Classic movies are my favorite genre!  From Jimmy Stewart to Clara Bow to William Powell!  The movies are classy and intelligent.

Today we lost a legend in classic movies.  Luise Rainer died today at 104 from pneumonia.

She was a two-time Oscar winner for The Great Ziegfeld and The Good Earth.

Rainer was one of the last great stars of the Golden Era of Hollywood.  She was a great lady.

As her daughter said, ” She was bigger than life and can charm the birds out of the trees. If you saw her, you’d never forget her.”

Good night Luise!

I will be back in the New Year.


The Heights Theatre

Here’s shameless promotion….

If you are a lover of classic movies and live in the Minneapolis area, try the Heights Theater in Columbia Heights.   Every Thursday night this summer they are showing classic movies.  Tonight is one of my favorite movies, The Women.

They also show independent films.

The theater is a truly original experience.  You walk in and see a tastefully decorated theater as well as golden chandeliers.  They have an organist and the organ comes out of the floor!

It is one thing to see a classic movie on TCM and another to see them on the big screen!

Do yourself a favor and go to The Heights!


Great Hollywood Legends

Two wonderful actors passed this week.

Peter O’Toole was a rascal and a guy that anyone would love to hang out with.   He is best known for “Lawrence of Arabia” but my favorite O’Toole movie is “How to Steal a Million.”  He starts with Audrey Hepburn in this comedy caper.  The premise is Hepburn’s father is a con artist and fakes art.  When the London Museum wants to insure one of his fake sculptures, they must do a scientific test to validate it.     Audrey and Peter proceed to steal the sculpture.

Joan Fontaine also passed away.  She won an Oscar for “Suspicion,”  however she was also in “The Women.”  It was a witty and fast paced comedy.

Check out the acting of these two and you will find out why classic movies are so revered.

Happy Tuesday!
