Hi Lomm & Everyone!! An update on my plan to clean Mercedes McCambridge's stars on Hollywood Blvd. - - I didn't need to. The first day of the TCM FF, water trucks sprayed the entire streets around the areas of the Festival to clean everything for the participants. All the stars were clean and s...

Re: CANDIDS II

Hi Lomm, I knew Mercedes McCambridge through her son, who was a (semi) friend of mine. He had the same history tutor as me; and Lawrence was his second name, the same as my first. He was a strange, unruly kid, and "Mercy" thought that I would be a good influence on him. She sometimes 'bab...

Saw this a few minutes ago and thought of you, my classic movie friends. I was not terribly familiar with him but I know he was beloved. RIP

Re: IMDb Shutters Message Boards

I never posted there but spent a lot of time on those boards, especially on the ones for classic films. Got a lot of trivia, links, and information from them. It would be nice if they at least archived the existing ones for posterity.

That last picture. :(

I love that Carrie was buried in a Prozac pill. It's perfect, given her irreverent sense of humor.

I hope you find some classic movie fans eventually! If not, we're still here. :) As Masha said, a Roku could be a great solution for you, if you have reliable high speed internet. There are also a large amount of old films on YouTube. Welcome back, always glad to see more people posting. Feels like ...

Re: Gone With or Without fanfare

Awful time for the family. I can't even imagine how they must be feeling. Carrie Fisher was one of my all time favorites, who I've literally grown up "knowing". From first crush on a movie star as a youngling to appreciating her wit and candidness as I grew up and learned more of her. I've...
