Welcome to my passion for all things film!

Step inside and enjoy memories or maybe learn something new. Hopefully, I keep you engaged and thinking.  Enjoy!

I’ve been a movie fan ever since I was a little kid tagging along with my sisters to the Saturday matinee.  A theater full of kids, popcorn and some of the worst/best B-movies of all time!

One of my all time faves that I saw as a kid was “The House on Haunted Hill.” Producer, Director William Castle was the king of  the movie gimmick.  Each film had a feature to draw in an audience.  In his first financed film, Macabre (1958) he came up with the idea to give every movie goer a $1,000 life insurance policy from Lloyd’s of London in case they should die of fright during the film. To top it all off he had nurses stationed in the lobbies and a hearse parked in front of every theater. The film was a hit!

“House on Haunted Hill” (1959) was filmed in “Emergo.” During the final moments of the picture a skeleton, which had been suspended on wires, flies above the audience to correspond to the final act of the film.  As an adult, I had the joy of experiencing the “Emergo” effect when a revival came to a local theater to celebrate Halloween. In true Castle fashion, there was a contest for the best scream.

These days I fancy myself  a true film aficionado. I even speak in movie quotes! Whether it’s B-movies, classics, documentaries, whatever, my tastes run the gamut. This website is a personal, as well as a cathartic project. I love history so each post will contain information and insights into the origins and development of film.

You’ll also meet some of my very best character friends. I featured Agnes from the “Despicable Me” films because she touched my heart and I always want to keep her spirit close to me. So I’ll leave you with an Agnes quote:

Agnes: Oh my gosh, look at that fluffy unicorn!  ( Agnes looks at the unicorn with awe) He’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!

  1. What a coinkydink! I just came home from dinner and saw my granddaughter watching “Despicable Me”.
    She pointed to a small child and said that was her and the big man was her Daddy. It was the unicorn scene!! That’s all I saw. Now I read your message and feel more connected.

  4. There ‘is’ something strange and wonderful about losing yourself in a very good movie then ‘snapping’ back to reality. I like the best of both worlds! Thank you for your follow and sharing.

    Thanks for the follow! How have you been and how’s your blog doing?
    I don’t know if you know that I moved my blog to a self-hosted platform. This has prevented me from connecting with WordPress bloggers like I used to. I would still like to remain in contact with your blog. Do you have an RSS feed I can subscribe to?
    If you would still like to follow my blog, may I add you to my mailing list? I send out one email per day with all the blogs posted for the day including blogging tips. You can also unsubscribe at any time if you feel you want to stop receiving the emails. If you are happy for me to subscribe you, please send me your email address.
    Also, I created a blogger tips group to connect with all my long last WordPress blogger friends, and to help all of us to learn from each other. I would love for you to share your knowledge in the group and connect with other bloggers. Here’s the link:
